The Woman Hath Not Power Over Her Body

With the acceptance of abortion in our world, one of the lines most often used by supporters of this practice is that “women should have control over their bodies.” It seems brutish to argue against such a statement, to say that they do not. 1st Corinthians teaches quite clearly on this subject however. The husband has power over the wife’s body. Of course the reverse is also true, the husband’s body belongs to the wife.

1 Corinthians 7:4, “The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.”

1 Corinthians 6:19-20, “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.


So then why are there so many Christians who are joining up with the political left on this and other subjects? (Young believers especially are susceptible to this casual attitude towards God’s standards).

Liberal Christians have their conscience seared as with a hot iron, thus they are incapable of distinguishing right from wrong (1 Timothy 4:2). Their only goal is to please the world and fit in. They are more worried about offending man than offending God. The lack of respect for the scriptures and what they actually mean, twisting them in such a way that comforts the modern mind in our sin. Denying that the biblical miracles took place. To me, there is no clearer example than appointing an LGBT clergy person, (this is the abomination of desolation spoken of in Daniel for that church or denomination).

Rather than support unrestricted abortion, we should support funding orphanages to receive such children if the mother is unprepared to take care of the child. That may not be a perfect solution, but it is better than killing the next generation of infants off. We have become so casual with setting our own man-made standards of comfort in place of God’s. Prepare to see the church open wide to accept much greater darkness than it already has, unbelievable as this may seem; we have only seen the beginning.
