This is a great day for religious liberty, right? We saw protestant and Catholic alike come together for the common cause of preventing mandatory abortion. Maybe we don’t differ so much after all.
Why are Christian against the Idea of Contraception Mandates?
While we don’t feel that the government should make laws that outlaw an individual’s right to abort a child; it is a direct violation of the seventh commandment that says
Thou shalt not kill
If this mandate would stand it would mean the violation of religious liberty in which this country was founded on, as well as a violation of conscience.
For a business owner that has religious convictions, a decree to swallow those convictions violates the company’s freedom to worship according to the dictates of one’s own conscience, but forces corporate worship void of love and personal decision.
Unspoken Opportunity in Contraception Ruling
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. – Revelation 17:13
Catholics and protestants came together to push out the forced abortion act from the ObamaCare administration. On the surface this is a beautiful act of unity but the bible tells us that this is the beginning of something far more sinister.
“When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with Spiritualism (the charismatic movement?) … then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near” (Christian Service pp. 160, 161).
This marks the first time in history that Supreme court has recognized for-profit organizations religious rights under federal law or the constitution.
This also signifies of the greatest testimonies that christians of all denominations should lay aside their differences and just love each other and function as one body.
I couldn’t agree more. It’s awesome to see christians unite and make a difference in our nation and in the world. After all the bible does tell us if possible live peaceably among all men.( Rom 12:18)
I wished I could say that it would always be as sweet as victory as we are witnessing now.
Prophesy shows the liberties that America has always has stood on and the morals this great nation was founded on will begin to erode and many christians will begin to back laws that limit the freedom of their brethren.
Unity can be a great thing but the bible commands us to form unity around sound doctrine.
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
– John 17:17
There is a quote I’d like to leave you with today from one of the most translated and astonishing authors in the last 200 years, Ellen White, in her classic book, Great Controversy.
“Romanism is now regarded by Protestants with far greater favor than in former years. In those countries where Catholicism is not in the ascendancy, and the papists are taking a conciliatory course in order to gain influence, there is an increasing indifference concerning the doctrines that separate the reformed churches from the papal hierarchy; the opinion is gaining ground that, after all, we do not differ so widely upon vital points as has been supposed, and that a little concession on our part will bring us into a better understanding with Rome. The time was when Protestants placed a high value upon the liberty of conscience which had been so dearly purchased. They taught their children to abhor popery and held that to seek harmony with Rome would be disloyalty to God. But how widely different are the sentiments now expressed!” (p. 563).
Remember these words of Jesus: Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Revelation 3:11 kjv
