Dear Editor:

I read the title of a letter to the editor last Friday the 28th, and thought it was a joke or written as tongue-in-cheek. I then saw who the writer was and determined that this idea of “Bible is pro-abortion” was a total misrepresentation of what Scripture actually says. The KJV Bible states in 1 Corinthians 2:14, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” Spiritually discerned means that an individual must be, a “believer,” “saved,” or “born again,” otherwise said individual cannot understand the meaning of Scripture. That’s not me saying this, but God through his apostle, Paul.

I have seen pictures in the News Tribune and on television of this particular individual protesting several different issues. They have the “right” to protest anything they wish, but to say that God is pro-abortion is totally incorrect. They have a misunderstanding of what the Scripture is teaching. Again, if one is not a “believer,” “saved,” or “born again,” understanding the Spiritual aspects of the Bible, is impossible. This is just another attempt to justify their demented idea of killing an unborn baby. They didn’t even use the term child, but used the term fetus. Fetus comes from the Latin word which means “young one” or “young child.”

How can an individual be for abortion on demand, the killing of an unborn child that hasn’t beven given a chance at life, but be totally against capital punishment for an individual convicted of multiple charges of pedophilia, like the doctor(sic) that molested several Olympic gymnast’s? Go figure!

Just because someone can read doesn’t mean that they can understand the meaning of Scripture, just like me walking through a garage doesn’t make me a car. Satan is really working overtime to destroy that which a Holy God has established as the norms in our world. He is perverting the minds of people, so that they believe all sorts of perversion.
