In spite of what some people like to believe, the reality is that abortion is murder. Life cannot be measured by viability. Even the article I referred to states “There is nothing in the bible to indicate that a fetus is considered to be anything other than living tissue and, according to scripture, it does not become a living being until after it has taken a breath.” This is patently false, but please notice that even the author of the article refers to the fetus as “living tissue,” so it is alive, isn’t it. The assertion that the Bible does not teach that a fetus does not become a living thing until after it takes its breath is also completely incorrect.
The truth is that even though the first generation of Israelites that went into possess the Promised Land had a limited measure of success in rooting out enemies, they did not ever fully or permanently truly possess the Land and cease from their labors to rid the Land of God’s enemies. This has not yet occurred in history to this day and can be clearly seen in the ongoing conflicts, struggles, and terrorism within the Middle East. What Moses is speaking of here in verses six through eight is really speaking of a yet future time.
Antisemitism is on the rise and a good bit of it is due to the hatred ensconced within the ranks of Islam as well as the intolerance of the fascist left. We will continue to see more Antisemitism rise as time goes on. While that is terrible, God will apparently use it to His advantage. There are numerous portions of Scripture which speak to this problem or at least imply it happening during the “latter days.” Deuteronomy 4:30-31 is just one example.
