  •  Was GOD Pro-Life? (7+ / 0-)

    If so why did he have Moses and others kill so many babies?
    Also: Exodus 21:22 BBE
    Bible in Basic English
    If men, while fighting, do damage to a woman with child, causing the loss of the child, but no other evil comes to her, the man will have to make payment up to the amount fixed by her husband, in agreement with the decision of the judges.

    the punishment is not death, but a fine, had they kill a live baby, it would not be a fine, its Gods word.

    •  Since they like to quote the Bible, (7+ / 0-)

      I like to have these ready:

      But better than both is the one who has never been born, who has not seen the evil that is done under the sun.

      Ecclesiastes 4:3

      If a man does not get his share of happiness……then I say a baby born dead is better off. It does that baby no good to be born…….It never sees the light of day or knows what life is like, but at least it has found rest.

      Ecclesiastes 6:3-5

      Sooo.... God seems to think that maybe it's just a smidge better to not be born than to be born to a very unfortunate situation.

      Even this line from Psalms that RWNJs love to quote:

      “You saw me before I was born” Psalm 139:16
      doesn't mean that a soul is also terminated when a pregnancy is. Souls are eternal. We have no idea when the fetus has its soul installed.  It may be when it draws it first breath.

      I believe that the woman alone understands when/if her zygote/fetus/baby acquires its soul. It's not my place to say, nor the job of any other random stranger.

       It certainly is not the job of a secular government to decide.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
