Some folks: We need to allow women the option to terminate their pregnancies if it will negatively affect them economically. What kind of life could that child have in a poor family?
Same folks now: Reopen the country??! What?!?! Are you valuing the economy over human life???!! Sure, some will suffer, but you don’t want people to die, do you???!
Same folks previously: The Earth is overpopulated and contributing to a lower standard of living.
And Me: I was guilty of this type of thinking for years. Honestly not sure how my loved ones put up with me for so long! Thanks be to God for His salvation in Christ the Lord. Also, if this post angers you, I totally understand. I would have felt the same way years ago. My intention is not to stir up anger, but to shed light on hypocritical, inconsistent thinking. We sharpen one another! I wish someone had lovingly taken me aside and spoke to me about my own illogical reasoning in the past.
Rather than argue about inconsistent, faulty standards and models, trust the Perfect Standard and wisdom of the Lord Jesus in His Word.
Proverbs Chapter 3 verses 5-8 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. (ESV)
