God, abortion, and Nancy Pelosi

Sometimes the mask comes off, and people are just honest about what they really think. Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, had one of those moments last week, when she talked about "the three G's," comments that are now circulating around the internet.

During the Democratic National Convention, Judy Woodruff was interviewing the former Speaker of the House for the PBS Newshour (7/26/16), and Pelosi made some remarks about "non-college-educated white males" who vote Republican.

According to Pelosi they "voted against their own economic interests" – I disagree with her. I think the opposite is true. The policies of the Democratic Party have been disastrous for our recovery.

But Pelosi went on to say the reason they vote this way are "because of guns, because of gays, and because of God. The three 'Gs,' God being the woman's right to choose."

Well, there it is. Pelosi said something we all instinctively know: To be pro-abortion is anti-God.

It's interesting that when the Supreme Court imposed abortion on this country on all 50 states by judicial fiat on January 22, 1973 in Roe v. Wade, they did appeal to religion in the decision. They appealed to ancient Greek and Roman religion. But they decidedly by-passed the Christian faith.

And rightly so, because Christianity has always stood against abortion. Even from the beginning of the faith to the present, the greatest opposition to the abortion ethic has been the church.

Many years ago, Pelosi claimed that she favors the governmental policies she does because they are, supposedly, "in keeping with the values of" the Word made flesh, that is, Jesus Christ. She made these remarks at a Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill (5/6/10).

"And that Word," Pelosi said, "is, we have to give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the Word. The Word. Isn't it a beautiful word when you think of it? It just covers everything. The Word."

She continued, "Fill it in with anything you want. But, of course, we know it means: 'The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.' And that's the great mystery of our faith. He will come again. He will come again. So, we have to make sure we're prepared to answer in this life, or otherwise, as to how we have measured up."

I am amazed at this. She admits that Jesus is coming again, and we'll have to answer to Him. And yet she brazenly clings to her pro-abortion stance despite this (she claims because of it).

If we take her remarks at face value, then she is telling us Jesus would sanction abortion. As a student of Scripture and a follower of Jesus, the Son of David, I don't see how that could be.

David states in Psalm 139, "For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

The prophet Jeremiah says this in the very opening of his book: "The word of the Lord came to me saying, 'Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.' – this is God talking – 'Before you were born, I set you apart. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.'" So, here's this little unborn baby being appointed a prophet of the nations.

Jumping ahead to the New Testament. In Luke 1, we read of two pregnant cousins visiting with each other. Elizabeth, who was pregnant with John the Baptist, and Mary, who was pregnant with Jesus, and Elizabeth says, "As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy." Baby? Not according to Nancy Pelosi, who fights for abortion rights through all nine months of pregnancy. The Greek word in Luke 1 is brephos, which is the same for baby, born or unborn.

Mother Teresa once said this, "If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell others not to kill one another?" I think that's a very, very profound question.

There are a lot of politicians who get a lot of money from the pro-abortion lobby. There's a lot of money in that, and I think that's tragic.

I really do wish Nancy Pelosi's policies were truly impacted by the Word of God. When I see the legislation she pushes for, including all the pro-abortion laws – just as one example – I just have to wonder: Why is she so pro-abortion, when she knows God opposes it?
