In the third presidential debate, Hillary Clinton, speaking of late term abortion, said, “This is one of the worst possible choices that any woman and her family has to make.”
She was right. Choosing to have an abortion, during any term in the pregnancy, is the worst choice. A woman will live to regret that choice, unless her conscience has been soothed by the devil’s lie that abortion doesn’t really kill babies.
Donald Trump has been quoted as saying there should be some form of punishment for women who obtain abortions. And there will be. One day, every person will stand before a holy God to answer for his or her sin. The punishment for sin is death.
But there’s good news. Jesus already died. Jesus bore God’s wrath for us. He took our sins to the cross. By repentance and belief, His sacrifice becomes ours.
I have been there. I have lived with the regret.
I can rejoice because Jesus’ death provided a sufficient sacrifice for my sin. As it did for all those who would put their faith in Him. The good news about abortion? It can be forgiven.
We can trust in Jesus for salvation, and for the future of this country. Our hope truly is in Him alone.
Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
