I was fascinated an argument for abortion of unborn babies ended, “There will be hell to pay” if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. I’m not sure what was meant, but it is interesting a biblical term was used for keeping abortion convenient.
I do believe in a real, literal hell. Hell is for those who reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the only Way, Truth, and Life (John 14:6). Jesus taught us to pray to the Father in heaven, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10 CSB). So I wonder, are abortions something that God would want done in heaven or would that be more of an occurrence in hell?
Everyone worships something. God made us that way. So today many Americans’ idol is the god of convenience. Arguments for abortion promote the inconvenience of finances, social standing, welfare costs, work situations, or family difficulties. Another human being born has been considered inconvenient over 63,000,000 times since 1973.
The sacrifice of children to the god of convenience is detestable to our Creator. “You must not worship the LORD your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the LORD hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as a sacrifice to their gods” (Deuteronomy 12:31 NIV)
What has happened to the bodies of these unborn? Were they cremated? Certainly disposed of in some way. These are gruesome images we are not allowed to see because the god of convenience is too powerful to let this reality come to light.
Will there be hell to pay? Pro-abortion activists are trying to make it hell on earth for those who would defend the life of an unborn baby. So, yes there’s a temporary hell being paid by some today. But remember, there is an eternal hell that will be paid by many who take the broad way instead of the narrow way.
Jesus said, “Enter through the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who go through it” (Matthew 7:13-14 CSB).
