The false teachers of the “Christian” Left have been getting measurably more unhinged since Trump beat Hillary three times (at last count)*. And that’s good, because with their veneer completely stripped away it will be harder for world-lovers to pretend they are really Christians.
Example 1: They’ve always been pro-abortion extremists, demanding that taxpayers pay to kill the children of “Christian” Leftists, minorities and others up to their first breath and insisting that Jesus agrees with them. But now they are resorting to historical revisionism (read: lying) and full-scale mockery of anyone who would dare question their Molech-worshiping theology.
They have been corrected on this many times, so they are lying wolves and not just misinformed by #fakenews. Even atheistic countries opposed abortion for thousands of years, and the church always did until about 50 years ago when some apostate denominations fully abandoned orthodoxy. The Hippocratic Oath, written before the birth of Christ by non-Jews, was explicitly anti-abortion. And even Planned Parenthood was explicitly anti-abortion up to the 1960’s.
Here are a few quotes from early church leaders on abortion.
And when we say that those women who use drugs to bring on abortion commit murder, and will have to give an account to God for the abortion, on what principle should we commit murder? For it does not belong to the same person to regard the very foetus in the womb as a created being, and therefore an object of God’s care, and when it has passed into life, to kill it . . . Athenagoras of Athens, circa 180 A.D. from A Plea For The Christians
You shall love your neighbor more than your own life. You shall not slay a child by abortion. You shall not kill that which has already been generated. (Epistle of Barnabas 19.5; second century)
Do not murder a child by abortion or kill a new-born infant. (The Didache 2.2; second century catechism for young Christian converts)
It does not matter whether you take away a life that is born, or destroy one that is coming to the birth. In both instances, the destruction is murder. (Tertullian, Apology, 9.4; second century)
Those who give abortifacients for the destruction of a child conceived in the womb are murderers themselves, along with those receiving the poisons. (Basil the Great, Canons, 188.2; fourth century)
Jerome called abortion “the murder of an unborn child” (Letter to Eustochium, 22.13; fourth century).
Augustine used the same phrase, warning against the terrible crime of “the murder of an unborn child” (On Marriage, 1.17.15; fourth century).
The early church fathers Origen, Cyprian and Chrysostom likewise condemned abortion as the killing of a child.
Oh, and they published that the day after Christmas. Remember, using their reasoning, Jesus himself would have approved of him being killed up to his first breath — even on Christmas eve!** This is obviously one of the many passages they delete from the “Christian” Left “bible.”
Luke 1:39–45 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a town in Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”
And of course they are wildly anti-science, just as they are with climate change, transgenderism, etc. Any mainstream embryology textbook – or just plain common sense — confirms that the unborn are unique human beings from fertilization.
Example 2: To poke God and real Christians in the eye a bit more, they also posted this. Then they were shocked to find that people found it offensive.
They ignore this, and the rest of the Bible.
Romans 1:26–27 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Example 3: They thought that their “Christian” site must show a nonsense article about how Donald Trump allegedly holds his hands in the shape of the universal symbol for vaginas (because people tenting their hands is so newsworthy or something . . . and who knew there was a symbol for that?!) and then they banned lots of their regular “Christian” Left readers for having the audacity to point out that it wasn’t terribly edifying.
Run, don’t walk from “Christian” Leftists. They aren’t just a little heretical, they are drunk, naked, running-down-the-streets-screaming heretical. You have no excuses for following them.
*I didn’t vote for Trump, but man oh man am I glad Hillary lost. She was already cartoonishly evil before the election. Can you imagine how over-the-top evil she would have been had she won?! And watching the Left — including the “Christian” Left — continuously wet their pants over it the last 2 months has given me nonstop joy.
**Yes, I know He wasn’t born on December 25.
