What The Bible Says About Birth Control: Nothing. Abortion? God's For It.

Advertisement

The Bible says nothing about birth control. It says nothing, nada, zip, zero about birth control. So perhaps all the folks slinging bovine excrement about how a woman being in charge of her own fertility is evil ought to just go sit in the corner and read their Bibles. The Bible, however, has many admonishments in favor of abortion. From the website Evilbible.com:
"Abortion: Hosea 9:11-16 Hosea prays for God’s intervention. “Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer. Give them, 0 Lord: what wilt thou give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. . .Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.”

Clearly Hosea desires that the people of Ephraim can no longer have children. God of course obeys by making all their unborn children miscarry. Is not terminating a pregnancy unnaturally “abortion”?

Numbers 5:11-21 The description of a bizarre, brutal and abusive ritual to be performed on a wife SUSPECTED of adultery. This is considered to be an induced abortion to rid a woman of another man’s child.

Numbers 31:17 (Moses) “Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every women that hath known man by lying with him.” In other words: women that might be pregnant, which clearly is abortion for the fetus.

Hosea 13:16 God promises to dash to pieces the infants of Samaria and the “their women with child shall be ripped up”. Once again this god kills the unborn, including their pregnant mothers.

2 Kings 15:16 God allows the pregnant women of Tappuah (aka Tiphsah) to be “ripped open”.

In Jewish law, if one man caused the wife of another man to miscarriage, he was charged with a property crime not murder. He paid a fine and when on his way. The Bible does not consider abortion murder.

  1. When people who are fighting injure a pregnant woman so that there is a miscarriage, and yet no further harm follows, the one responsible shall be fined what the woman's husband demands, paying as much as the judges determine. 23. If any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe. (Exodus 21, NRSV)

This one is easy to find, since it occurs right after the 10 Commandments. Payment of monetary compensation was the biblical remedy for property damage. "An eye for an eye" was the punishment for a crime against a person. The fetus is property. The woman is a person. Destruction of another's property is not the taking of a human life.

lol, love it. I love how Deec so conviently takes Biblical passages and then tries to twist them to mean that God is pro-abortion. Sorry, EPIC fail. The Bible is very clear about the sanctity of human life and the rights of the unborn. There are numerous references to God knowing and creating the child in utero. God very clearly says to Jeramiah: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. Before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." In Isaiah, The Lord hath called me from the womb: from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. Isaiah 49:1 Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us within our mothers? Job 31:15 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:13-14 In Psalms, God speak directly to killing the innocents( the innocents being both born children and unborn), They mingled with the nations and adopted their customs. They worshipped their idols which became a snare to them. They sacrificed their sons and their daughter to demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan and the land was desecrated by their blood. In Lamentations, Even the jackals offer their breasts to nurse their young, but my people have become heartless like ostriches in the desert. Lamentations 4:3 In Psalms, the Psalmist says concerning God: Your eyes saw my unformed body In Job, there are several verses where it shows that God creates the unborn child. A creation that he creates with love. One that He does not destroy or wants destroyed.

You can't use the Bible to justify abortion no matter how you want to twist the words. First, and foremost, the word abortion or any root word that translates to abortion is never mentioned in the Bible. Secondly, the Old Testement puts the unborn child on the same par as the born child. In Mosaic law, they were equal and if a man caused a woman to miscarry due to his misdeeds, he was charged with murder.

If you want to try to claim that God is pro-abortion or that the Bible is a pro-abortion text, which it clearly isn't, then at least do a little bit more research than a website that is clearly biased. Before you post something like this again, it might actually be a good thing to actually study the history of the Bible, how it was created, the cultures it came from, how they thought and Biblical law.

For the record, I am not against birth control but this blog post is pure nonsense.

No woman is in charge of her own fertility. That's like claiming to be in charge of gravity just because you avoid steep cliffs.

I would like to state I am pro choice. I guess my question is, if you abort a baby, are you killing a human? If the answer is no, then if a person harms a pregnant women and she aborts the baby as a result, that offender is not charged with murder. Well, I would be pissed if my unborn child was killed in the womb and all the offender was charged with was battery on my wife. You can't have it both ways. The fetus is a human or it is not.

All this blog does is point out the absurdity of relying on a 2500 year old myth to address modern issues.

If someone, anyone can prove that this "god" is real then I will listen (maybe) to what it says but right now, all you have is a buch of made up fairy tales.

Hey, you know Voltron was pro-choice and pro-birth control. The Hulk is pro-choice but mad at the lack of protection for a creature his size Transformers, well, they don't need bc or condoms but support our freedom to use them Strawberry Shortcake likes having her freedom of choice Wolverine supports women and is pro-choice Spock is down with the choice

The one fake critter (other than god, right) that is anti is the Grinch. Newt Grinch's cousin the Grinch don't like

                    ( BIBLE RETARDATION...READ IT AGAIN AND GET AN JEWISH PREIST TO INTERPREPT THIS LAW..)  How can an Greek understand HEBREW Prophet..

Get Hosea's interpretion ( he is dead) we only have the( shadow of this command) as Greek we do not have the authority to make this law active and if this law is acted its murder under Greek law Today...

 We -  Do not Kill the unborn when its in late-term its murder)

The true God is not for abortion. Who gave us our life? Do not tell me that it is our father and mother. That is wrong because they are merely soil.

And what do you think is the difference between a living person, and a dead person in a coffin?

Regarding your verses,

1 (mythical) god can give or take life at his whim. That's his job. When men do it, they are breaking two commandants first by performing a task meant only for god and therefore recognizing the god which is oneself before the god in heaven, and second, the one about not killing.

2 Man has free will and may do as he wishes, but also must suffer the penalty. God doesn't like prior restraint.

LOL. I'm gonna quote some scriptures.

Gen 38:9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled [it] on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.

Gen 38:10 And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.

deec, a blog of this type says as much about you as the the vitriolic responses that are sure to follow. Is that your "thing"?
