Posted on 08/25/2008 10:59:36 AM PDT by Mrs. Don-o
Jesus would be O.K. with abortion. Not only that, Jesus's position on abortion would be even "more radical" than Barack Obama's! That was the wild, and patently false, assertion from Barack Obama supporter Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, a guest on Wednesday's The O'Reilly Factor on FNC (8/13/08).
[snip] The earliest Christian writings reveal that the earliest followers of Jesus were universally against abortion:
-- The Didache ("The Teaching of the Twelve") may be the earliest Christian document not found in the Bible. It has been dated at 50 A.D. It says: "You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not seduce boys. You shall not commit fornication... You shall not procure [an] abortion, nor destroy a newborn child."
If anyone ever needed an example of how callous and clueless so-called "progressive" pundits can be when it comes to the topic of Christianity...
From Wednesday's The O'Reilly Factor (8/13/08):
O'REILLY: The question is simple. (crosstalk) Would Jesus be as progressive on abortion - does he believe Jesus would, based upon his knowledge of theology - as he [Obama] is?
HILL: Absolutely. I think, absolutely.
O'REILLY: You believe Jesus would say, "Partial-birth abortion: No problem"?
HILL: I think Jesus would be even more radical than all the candidates who are --
O'REILLY (incredulous): On this issue?
HILL: On this issue and on all these other issues. I think a fundamentalist understanding of the pro-life/pro-choice debate is misguided and actually misses the point. And I think Barack Obama understands this kind of thing -- (inaudible) close to the center --
O'REILLY (incredulous): That would be a stunning dissertation if the Senator would give it. And I would absolutely want to hear it.
HILL: And I think he would. I think he will!
O'REILLY: Let's wrap this up ...

Jesus didn’t text message me?!?
I’m confused, I thought Jesus was running for president.
Jesus was not a frickin’ socialist.
He expected each individual person to carry out His will for the people.
No to collectivism!
This is a sick, sick, man.
you didn’t get the memo?
Jesus was merely a prophet ... the true messiah is running for president.
Right: Jesus was just kidding about the millstone and throwing yourself into a deep sea for harming “one of these little ones”...
So Jesus would be pro-choice? Would He be in favor of partial birth abortion? Would He be in favor of saving babies alive after abortion attempts or would He think it’s ok to let them die?
Would He be in favor of homosexual marriage?
I’ve heard similar talk about quotes such as Jesus saying “Blessed are the peacemakers”, which the leftists interpret to mean we should never fight a war or be involved in military action.
And the say how Jesus preached and encouraged all to help the poor, which the leftists interpret to mean that we need more gov’t programs to help the poor.
49”I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed! 51Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
All will learn what Jesus will do.
13And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
15Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
16And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
Maybe this guy heard from Jesus [hay--soos] in San Antonio, whose girlfriend is now in trouble.
Also - on the subject of preaching and gifting to the poor, it is all by choice, which is the most absolute, utter basic tenet of Christianity, on which all of it is entirely based. Choice.
Government compulsion to give is not choice. Without the choice to give, you cannot voluntarily display your help of the least of us. That is not Christian.
The fundamentalists among us are neither shocked nor incensed by this latest move in Hussein’s game. He has been rebuked by Bible believers, and the move is now his, and only his, to correct or continue on his path. God is in control of whomever wins the election, and the President can do nothing without God’s OK, even though God gives him, and us, choice.
These people are so whacked, brain dead, stoned beyond belief, there is no way this country will survive if their Messiah gets elected!!!!
When you examine the pedigree of their ideas, what you come to understand is that the abortion issue is one of the keystones to devaluing human life. This is something that is implicit in the ideology of the Left; it’s cast into their philosophical DNA.
Humans are things.
That the essence of it. Humans are fungible and ultimately disposable “assets”.
This is why you’ve got the likes of Margaret Sanger and Dr. Peter Singer doing their damndest to move the goalposts when it comes to defining life and humanity. Singer, for example, has argued that infants up to 28 months old don’t really have any cognitive ability that defines them as human. So it’s OK to ‘terminate’ them if the parent (or really, the State) so chooses.
Who lives, who dies. That’s the power they seek. They are all monsters, monsters from the deepest dark heart of of our existence and history is replete with the outcomes and the evidence of their sick Utopian ideas: slaughter and mass murder on a scale that beggars the imagination.
History also tells us what we must do to deal with them.
Peter reports and Mark wrote that Yah'shua said:shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach Adonai
NAsbU Mark 10:19 "You know the commandments, 'DO NOT MURDER, DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, DO NOT STEAL, DO NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, Do not defraud, HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER.'"
Liberals simply want to substitute a government gun (compulsion) for your conscience. You don’t get a say. You’re just a meat animal to be harvested, one slice at a time.
