44% of evangelicals say the Bible is ambiguous on abortion: What the Bible clearly says about the unborn

A recent study by the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University, in partnership with Dr. George Barna, found a number of disturbing trends among evangelicals and Christians at large. 

For example: 

  • 52 percent of evangelicals do not believe in absolute truth. 
  • 48 percent “believe a person who is good enough or does enough good works can earn eternal salvation”
  • 61 percent do not spend regular, daily time with God’s word. 

While those examples are problematic, to say the least, I’d like to focus on two other results I found to be even more disturbing: 

  • 44 percent of evangelicals “claim the Bible is ambiguous in its teaching about abortion”
  • 34 percent say that abortion is “morally acceptable if it spares the mother from financial or emotional discomfort or hardship.” 

Perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that when we reject the idea of absolute truth and increasingly spend less time in Scripture, our beliefs will increasingly diverge from the Lord’s. 

But the Bible is anything but ambiguous on the value of children, both in the womb and after birth. 

What does the Bible say about the unborn?

Psalm 139:13 states, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”

Psalm 22:10 makes clear that “from birth I was cast on you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God.”

If you want to discount those passages by arguing the psalms are speaking poetically, note that God tells Jeremiah “before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5). 

The prophet Isaiah echoes those sentiments: “This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the Lord, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself” (Isaiah 44:24). 

The Old Testament law further makes clear that God sees the unborn…

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
