There are a lot of opinions in this world.
And sometimes given the force of other people’s opinions and even sometimes the seemingly compelling nature of the way in which they make their arguments, we can begin to waver in our own convictions.
But you know, it can help every once in a while to take a step back.
This person who has this strong opinion about what’s right and what’s wrong, what else do they believe?
For example, are they willing to kill children?
It is hard (read pretty much impossible) for me to take very seriously the moral opinions of someone who defends the murder of children while they are in the womb.
Obviously there are people who have actually even done that, they have had abortions, and come to grieve over what they have done and repent of it. That is a totally different story. I have no doubts God is happy and quick to show mercy to anyone who has killed their own child if they will turn to Him in repentance. And I am more than happy to call them friend. But, when it comes to the person who is presently arguing and defending abortion, to be able to do that, their worldview has to be so radically different, that no matter how forcefully they argue their opinions in other areas, it is difficult for me personally to take any moral kinds of argument they make very seriously.
In other words, you can say what you want about what I believe about God or the Bible or how God wants us to live, my “moral code”, if you want to call it that, but if you are basically willing to approve of child sacrifice, your opinions just aren’t going to carry very much weight .
