Christian Persecution and the Right to Life



“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

Psalm 139:14

Christians are being persecuted from every angle possible. They are persecuted for their disbelief in evolution, their convictions concerning marriage, their right to practice their religion anywhere, including schools and work. They are being persecuted in every aspect of their lives, including within their own home. Legislation in some states has made it illegal to have religious meetings in private homes.[1] Now these persecutions are also including the freedom to believe God instead of humanity as it pertains to our own bodies.

A Missouri based Satanic Temple took their persecution to the Missouri State Supreme Court. They say that the laws currently in place in Missouri infringe on their religious beliefs about abortion.

“The Satanic Temple's position is that the state-mandated informed consent materials, which proclaim ‘life begins at conception’ and that ‘abortion will terminate the life of a separate, unique, living human being,’ are debatable points of religious opinion—opinions that we do not agree with,” Lucien Greaves, a spokesman for the Satanic Temple, told Newsweek.[2]

This is a direct stab at Christians, because the law uses Christian morals. The current laws were put in place to protect children from abortion and protect them in the broadest way possible. The broadest protection available is based on Biblical morality. If the Satanists had their way, they would disregard the rights of children and probably have satanic ritual abortions in the abortion clinics. While this is just speculation on my part, I would not be surprised if this occurred. This is a direct attack on our Christian faith and moral standards, and the rights of unborn children.

All life is precious, so we need to protect those lives in a broad and all-encompassing manner. That manner just happens to be through Christian morality based laws. Christian morals dictate that every life is precious and important. We are fearfully and wonderfully made by God and marvelous are His works.

Let’s protect those that can’t protect themselves and continue fighting to end abortion. Abortion should never be an option. Without regard for how a woman got pregnant. The fact that she is pregnant is not her child’s fault and the child should not be punished for the sins, indiscretions, drunken or drug induced mistakes of the mother. The child should also not be punished for the sins, indiscretions, drunken or drug induced mistakes, rape or incest of their fathers. Each child is a distinct and separate human being from conception, and God new them from before they were conceived and before He created the universe. Children have the right to live and deserve to live.

Stand up Christians and stand against this persecution that is attacking us from all sides.
