Turn in your Bibles to Deuteronomy 30:19. The title of the message is “Choose Life.” Deuteronomy 30:19 says: “This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.”
Introduction: As a nation, we must come to grips with the option and opportunity in Deuteronomy 30:19. God has set before us the option of life and death and the opportunity to choose life. Tragically, as a culture, we have chosen death. Did you know that 3,000 innocent people will be murdered in America tomorrow? These individuals have had no trial, no legal representation, and no opportunity to defend themselves. Yet, they have been executed in a cruel, inhumane way.
In fact, we can predict these horrible deaths with chilling accuracy. One human life will be destroyed every 20 seconds. When added up, that’s around 1 million Americans a year. Over the past 42 years, some 57 million have been murdered without mercy in these United States. Mark down January 22, 1973 as a date that will also live in infamy. For on that date, the United States Supreme Court made it legal# for our nation to murder human beings by what doctors call an abortion.#
Let the weight of that hit you: 57 million lives…gone. Just think of a catastrophic disaster where the entire populations of California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington are wiped out. That is what we are talking about. Abortion is the American Holocaust, and it is a moral outrage that ought to make every Christian in this nation rise up in righteous indignation. So what I want to do this morning is to expose the deceptive arguments of the pro-abortion crowd, and then show you the declared truth of the word of God regarding unborn human life, and finally give you some definite things you can do about this moral madness called abortion, this war on human life.
I. DECEPTIVE ARGUMENTS OF THE PRO-ABORTIONISTS
First of all, let’s talk about the Deceptive Arguments used by the pro-abortion crowd. Let’s be honest, the abortionists, who like to be called pro-choice, have a lot of persuasive-sounding arguments they use to shout down their opponents. Maybe some of you have been deceived by these arguments, but want you to listen closely to some of them, and see if they really are all that sound when we subject them to scrutiny….
