Part 3

God’s love for the lives of Babies is a Greater Issue than Other Issues (Exodus 1:11-14)

  1. Point: Murdering babies is a greater sin in God’s eyes than most other sins.
  2. Proof:
    1. Pharaoh’s Policy: Harsh slavery described
      1. appointed taskmasters over them to afflict them with [i]hard labor.” (11b)
      2. they built for Pharaoh storage cities, Pithom” (v.11c)
      3. The Egyptians compelled the sons of Israel to labor rigorously” (13)
      4. Kinds of labors: “and they made their lives bitter with hard labor in mortar and bricks and at all kinds of labor in the field, all their labors which they rigorously [k]imposed on them.” (14)
    2. Of Egypt’s three harsh policies, God intervened right away with two of the situations but did not right away with slavery. What does this tell us?
      1. God intervention with babies through His providence shows his love for babies.
      2. God will free Israel from slavery which is the drawn out topic of the Book.
      3. I would venture to say that God saw the murdering of babies to be far more evil than slavery and therefore intervened right away.
      4. Think of it: When people are oppressed in slavery, they can run away or cope. But there is no place for running away for a helpless baby.  There is no place a baby could escape in the womb from abortion devices.
    3. Practice:
      1. Do we see in American history that our current abortion holocaust that began when the Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973 is a greater tragedy than even the American Slavery and the Civil War?
      2. More than even the immediate injustice that we might be facing in our lives with work and the economy, have you considered that a greater evil in God’s eyes is abortion?
      3. Are we vowed to stand for life and be willing to even make a stand, when it’s unpopular?

 

Conclusion: There is hope for those who have even committed the sins of abortion.  Christ has died for all sins.  Yes, even in the sins of murder.  He Himself was murdered.  Died on the Cross.  For all our sins.  To Him we turn for grace.  To Him also we point others to for forgivness of sins as well.
