Evangelical Christians may disagree with the Catholic Church on many doctrines but they do agree with Catholics on the abortion issue

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: In light of the upcoming elections David, Joe Biden is Catholic and the Roman Catholics make up one of the largest voting blocks in the United States. It would be helpful to understand the Catholic Churches official position on abortion. 

DJ: Back in 1994 a number of prominent Catholic and Protestant Theologians and ministry leaders published a document titled, "Evangelicals and Catholics Together". Over 25 years now there's been a campaign to try to convince people that the reformation is effectively over because Catholics and Evangelicals now essentially agree on salvation but that is really categorically false and very deceptive. I'm not endorsing the Catholic Church in any way but they are on the right side of the abortion issue. 

If you look at the official main catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 2271 says this, Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that to say, abortion willed either as and end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law. What that means Jimmy when it says gravely contrary that means its a mortal sin and it will send you to hell for engaging in that sin.

JD: Several Biblical reasons why abortion is murder.

DJ: When Job was suffering he said in chapter 3 verse 16, or why was I not hidden like a still born child like infants who never saw the light. So he refers to an unborn baby as a child and a child is a person. In Genesis 25 we read about Rebekah and when she was pregnant and the children struggled together within her. In Psalm 139 King David wrote, "For you form my inward parts, you covered me in my mothers womb, I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made". And if we think of the incarnation itself we must ask when it was that God took on human flesh. It could only have been at the moment the holy spirit overshadowed Mary and she could see.

JD: David James explaining why Evangelical Christians do not agree with the Catholic Church on many doctrines but they do agree with them on the abortion issue. 

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

David listed a number of passages in the Bible where God explains why abortion is against His will. In fact He reveals abortion is murder. Remember murder is punishable by death, that's Genesis 9:6. God wonderfully made all of us and has a plan for each of us today and into the future.
