In 1996 a grain ship, “Bright Field,” was heading down the Mississippi River near New Orleans, when it lost control, veered toward the shore and crashed into a riverside shopping mall. The impact demolished parts of the wharf and injured 116 people. According to the Coast Guard investigation, the ship’s owner and crew had failed to repair long-standing engine problems. This is a clear example of not doing what you should do and receiving the consequences of bad decisions.

            The Devil deceived Eve into thinking that there would be no consequences for eating the forbidden fruit (Gen. 3:1-7). God said, “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, ye shall not eat of it lest ye die” (v.3) The Devil said, “Ye shall not surely die.” (v.4) Eve dilly-dallied with the temptation and contemplated the possibilities that the Devil had suggested and threw away all restrain and ate the fruit!  Why?  The Devil deceived her into thinking that there would be no consequences for sin.

            The Devil continues to lie to us today and tells our society that a little sin won’t hurt, a little indulgence is not a problem, a little transgression will never hurt anybody! The Devil tells us that we are only human and go ahead and enjoy sin. The Bible says, “The way of the transgressor is hard.” ( Prov. 13:15)

            Our society believes that it can live in disobedience to God’s will by practicing homosexuality and never suffer the consequences. The scriptures teach that there will be consequences for our actions. “Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth unto his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption: but he that soweth unto the spirit shall of the spirit reap eternal life.” (Gal. 6:7-8) This basic principle applies to the physical world and spiritual realm as well. The word, “mocked” is a Greek word (mukterizete:) which means to turn one’s nose up at God. The point is that if a person sows to the flesh (homosexuality and sinful living) and turns up his nose at God, he shall go the way of all flesh, -- die and face the judgment of God where there will be consequences. (reap destruction – Gal. 6:8)

The scriptures emphasize the consequences of sin in other verses. Ezekiel said, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” (Ez. 18:4) Paul said, “The wages of sin is death.” (Rom. 6:23)  Over and over, again and again, the Bible under all circumstances, emphasizes that we reap what we sow and that sin is always followed by consequences.

            There is rebellion in the hearts and in the behavior of many people in our society today. In view of the fact that sin will always have consequences, what can we predict for the future? According to the basic law of sowing and reaping, the answer can best be given in the words of the prophet Hosea, “They sow the wind and they shall reap the whirlwind.” (Hos. 8:7) There is one time of sowing (while alive), and there will be two times of reaping. We reap in this life and also reap beyond this life in the hereafter. Sin brings forth its consequences both here and hereafter.

            People may do things without realizing the consequences of their actions, but one day there is going to be an accounting! (Rev. 21:8)                                                                                                                                                                                           



Roe vs Wade has been the most wicked decision in U.S. history with the aftermath of 63 million babies have been aborted/murdered. Even the leftist Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is now missing in action in the Supreme Court, earlier said, “Roe was a heavy-handed judicial intervention which was difficult to justify.”

          In New York and Virginia and other liberal states, the state governments are working to loosen restrictions on late-term abortion up to just before the baby is born. The action of this expansion of abortion rights leads directly to first-degree murder of a human being.

          At present, the Supreme Court’s decision allows judges across the country to block abortion restrictions using nebulous standards, such as whether they impose a “substantial burden” on a woman’s right to obtain an abortion. When leaders pass a law to legally kill a baby on the day it is to be born and it’s celebrated, this is morally repugnant.

          These Democratic bills in these liberal states have the goal to shore up that existing framework and ensure that abortion rights remain available even late in pregnancy, no matter what happens to the makeup of Federal courts. These wicked bills seek to erase limits on abortion, portray it as routine health care and glorify it as a good social measure. Most OB/GYN physicians argue that late in a pregnancy is killing a healthy fetus and is never required to save a mother’s life. To argue for abortion on the grounds of fetal abnormality, amounts to defending the selective killing of a human being with disabilities or terminal illnesses.

          A Gallup polling from 2018 found that only 13% of Americans favor making third-trimester abortions legal. Democrats are exposing an uncomfortable reality. They embrace abortion as a woman’s right to end the life of her fetus at any stage. This is why the abortion-rights movement has long relied upon euphemisms to obscure the unpleasant truth about the right they advocate.  Phrases like women’s rights, right to choose, and reproductive freedom, along with the dismissive jargon like clumps of cells cannot cover up murder.

          The Bible doesn’t use the term abortion. It is a modern-day term used for ending a pregnancy prematurely. But the Bible does speak of birth, unborn children and the value of life. Most arguments concerning abortion deal with a woman’s right to choose. What is missing is the right of the child within her. Is the fetus a person? If so, any abortion is killing an innocent life  --  first-degree murder.

          What does the Bible say about babies in the womb? The Bible refers to the life that is in the womb by the same Greek word that describes a child who has been born and is outside the womb. Before the child is born, we read, “And it came to pass that when Elisabeth heard the salvation of Mary, the baby (brephos) leaped in her womb” (Luke 1:41). After the child is born, the Bible uses the same Greek word, “And they came with haste and found Mary, Joseph and the babe (brephos) lying in a manger” (Luke 2:13).

          My point here is that life that is in the womb is the same as a life outside the womb. The unborn is a person which is proven by God’s word. (Psalm 139:12-16; Jeremiah 1:5) Christians need to apply some common sense to this issue. If you went to your doctor and asked him/her to remove your healthy leg, do you think he/she would do this? No! In fact, the doctor would do all that is possible to save your leg, even if it were unhealthy for some reason. Yet, that is exactly what abortion does. It removes healthy, living tissue which is a living human being for no reason except it will be inconvenient for the birth mother.

          Human life is sacred, and only God has the right to give and take life. Abortion is a grave sin that cries to heaven for vengeance!
