"If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, 'Surely we did not know this,' does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?" Proverbs 24:10-12
Biblical Truth Must Lead to Action
This is a Biblical command. We are commanded to rescue those being led away to death. Biblical Truth should always involve knowledge that moves us to action. Theology is not just to stimulate us intellectually and to add to the memory bank of our knowledge and Theological information. It is always meant to change attitudes and actions, behaviour and belief. The whole concept of Biblical knowledge and Truth is always experiential. It is faith in action. It must not only affect the head. It must affect the heart and the hands. It is not just intellectual. It is emotional and spiritual. It is transformational. Biblical truth leads to bold action
The Bible is a Pro-life Book
The Bible describes a child in the womb as a person. In the Bible there is no different word in the Hebrew, or Greek, to distinguish between a child in the womb, or a child out of the womb. The same word is used, in Greek it is brephos. The Bible speaks about Elizabeth who when she heard Mary's greeting "the baby in her womb leapt for joy." This referred to John the Baptist. It is the same word that is used when it speaks about the baby in the womb, or the toddler crawling around. There is no different word distinguishing between a baby that is pre-born and a baby that is born. Exactly the same word, in both the Hebrew in the Old Testament and the Greek in the New Testament, is used. As Elizabeth said: as soon as Mary's greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leapt for joy!
