Before Roe vs. Wade, women were subjected to the cruel use of a coat hanger in back alleyways and other dark places to annul a life. After these women found out that they were pregnant, to terminate the pregnancy, this would be the method of choice. Many women bled to death and many pre born children would lie motionless, in pools of blood, after being pulled by compassionless extreme force from the safety of the mother’s womb.
After society found that this was unacceptable, Roe vs. Wade became landmark and precedent. Since then, over 50 million innocent children were “medically” terminated. It is estimated that 1.2 million abortions will take place this year in 2012. Meaning that 2.4 million males and females had sex (safe to say-committed adultery or fornication), and conceived a child.
98% of these abortions are unwanted or unintended pregnancies.
For years, since out of wedlock pregnancies took place, the arguments for or against abortion was, and is still being made. Emotions run high on both sides. Both pro-life and pro-choice camps are passionate about their positions but….
we preachers have failed to address the one point that really makes the difference.
Secret Sexual Sins.
Notice what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 15:19 from the Amplified Bible…..
“For out of the heart come evil thoughts (reasonings and disputings and designs) such as murder, adultery, sexual vice, theft, false witnessing, slander, and irreverent speech.”
The evil spiritual condition of the heart is behind ALL “adultery” and “sexual vice.”
This is what we’ve been missing.
As the years progressed, the shame of births out of wedlock decreased. Years ago, the woman was stigmatized as a whore or prostitute.
To have children out of wedlock, used to be one of the most horrible things for a new unwed mother to experience. Single parenting.
Today, it is common as breathing air. Our inner cities are filled with baby carriages pushed by unwed, un-ringed mothers. Proudly strolling their child or walking them to school as they get older. Leaving them at the many day care homes and centers while they look for work, or go to school, work, and a second or third job while “brother man is screwing another beguiled woman, and producing another child or have children elsewhere.”
Fornication and adultery is an expected act in and outside the church.
And some pastors, either they are not preaching against fornication and adultery, they simply refuse to address the issue because single or married preacher man is watching porn and masturbating, or preacher man is screwing emotionally unstable church member, a choir member, or church secretary.
The problem is that the woman receive the brunt of the stigmatization while the men just smile and walk away. Children, generation after generation, are unaware of their biological fathers. Or the children will never know their biological father because they were aborted, rejected twice.
As long as the unregenerate heart snubs their nose at God and continue to commit whoredom in the land, we will see more abortions. The freedom and the right to choose…to terminate a life, conceived out of wedlock, is traced all the way back to the bedroom of fornication and adultery.
When it comes to the world, they will argue all day long about abortion. That it is their right to chose. However, when it comes to fornication and adultery that the Bible says “comes out of evil thoughts such as…adultery and sexual vice,” this is the root cause of all abortions. If we can preach this without flinching, the fear of God is made aware.
As we can see, people avoid the places where the fear of God is. People avoid the true house of worship because God, through His ordained, holy, sanctified, and consecrated preachers will preach the Word in season and out of season. It doesn’t mean that there will be complete adherence to the Word. It’s been known that even those in church will not adhere to the Word of God for their own good.
Sadly, some in the church will just call adultery and fornication a mistake. The Bible calls it “whoredom and harlotry.”
The street calls them “hoes.”
The Bible, in Proverbs, calls brother man “a fool.”
But regardless of these Biblical names, they will commit evil because of the unbridled lust that is in their hearts. The Word is evil spoken of and preachers are ridiculed as stupid for not understanding the times.
They tell preachers today, that they are behind the times. “GET OVER IT.”
In fact, they tell you not to “judge them” and to “stop throwing stones.”
All this is code for “Stop telling me about my sin. Get off my case!”
When the convicting power of God’s Word comes, there is no escape. But why does the conviction come? It’s because the Lord desires to save you from the sin that you are about to commit because He sees, down the road, ALL the stuff that the wind of your sin will bring.
It’s bad enough that the Lord is offended. What makes this all the more difficult is the fact that you could have avoided the trouble if you had listened. We all know that people will not listen. Sadly, many will do what they feel is right knowing that what they are doing is sin. The pleasure is just too much not to bypass. But after the pleasure, the decisions made by two fornicators or adulterers only reveal that the sin brought about contemplation of an immediate remedy.
This is done to avoid a 20 year whirlwind. But the whirlwind will come because of murder, no matter how legal the government makes it, is unavoidable.
Hosea 8:7 says….
“They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind…”
The NLT says….
“They have planted the wind and will harvest the whirlwind.”
By abstaining from fornication. By keeping your flesh under control until you get married, you are preventing a whirlwind of problems and issues associated with your decision to have sex before marriage.
Sadly, some women will sow the wind. Sadly, some brothers will sow the wind.
There is no doubt about the whirlwind and it’s power to destroy.
That’s why we pastors must get at the root cause and not just voice the Word of God alone about the heinous crime of snuffing out the life of a child that was caught in the middle of a person’s sin of adultery and fornication. The “expedient” “expeditious” annulling of a life is a coward’s way out of assuming full responsibility.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Few realize that fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and bisexuality are destructive to the true family nucleus of father, mother, and legitimate children. The sins of the flesh, Secret Sexual Sins are destructive to the Biblical pattern of family. Divorce because of sexual immorality is destructive to the family nucleus, ordained by God. Sexual immorality is MOAB, The Mother Of All Battles. And the devil has stopped the church on the plains of MOAB just like he stopped the children of Israel in the plains of MOAB. All because of sexual immorality.
With President Obama signing off on more funding for abortion, the root cause of fornication and adultery is “approved” by the laws of man.
But thanks be to God that you do not have to go this route no matter who says that you have a right to right a wrong with a wrong.
We must remember that the root cause of adultery is fornication and adultery. No matter how unpopular the Word of God is, we must be found preaching the righteous Word of God and do more to not let society teach us how to circumvent Genesis 2:24.
Together, we can lessen the lives lost every day. Together, we can stop sowing the wind and watch a whirlwind continuously destroy our people.
