Changing Religious Beliefs...

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton stated in her keynote address at the 2015 Women in the World Summit on Thursday in New York that "deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed," speaking of women having the ability to murder their unborn children with what a blinded society calls "abortion".

Herein lie a number of problems. First on the list is direct disobedience against the commands of Almighty God, namely the sixth commandment, "You shall not *murder." (Exodus 20:13 - ESV) (*The Hebrew word also covers causing human death through carelessness or negligence.)

Then again, Romans 1 also speaks of Mrs. Clinton:
"28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them."
Secondly, Mrs. Clinton is on record encouraging others to do what ought not to be done, with no regard for the Lord and His righteous decrees whatsoever. See, the heart of the issue is not that she and many conservatives disagree on the issue of abortion. It's that she believes others should change what they believe to be true about murdering unborn children, so that they find themselves in opposition to God. She states what she "says and believes" about the issue, which shows the error of her heart.

The very definition of sin is to act as if we know better than God. It's the same pride that brought the downfall of Satan. It's the attitude that will convict Hillary Clinton before Almight God on Judgment Day, and all those who do not repent, confessing Jesus as their Lord and Savior. May we each be convinced of the Truth, and change the error of our ways.

I'll go on public record to state I will never change my "cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases" on this issue. Children are a blessing from God. Blessed be the Lord and His judgment upon us if we are unrepentant. Thank you Lord for salvation by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ.
