If you have not yet read my first and second posts in this series, you can find them here: Part I & Part II.  You can find the original post that I am discussing here.

In my first two posts I answered the initial question, did God order an abortion?  The answer, of course, is a resounding no.  Of course He didn’t!  And just a little digging under the surface of the text gave us our answer.  But there is more to the post than just the title.  What about the rest of the accusations made throughout the post?  I would feel remiss if I did not address these as well.

The very next thing you see in the post after the Biblical text is a picture with this quote: “Will you still be prolife after she’s born?  Will you still apply the same vigor to your work: against war, against hunger, against poverty, against homelessness, against our planet’s degradation, against capital punishment, for human rights, for opportunities for education and jobs… that you...

If you have not yet read Did God Order an Abortion? Part I – please go there and read it now.  It is more important than Part II.  Here is the original blog post that I am addressing in this series.

In my first post I began to address the problematic nature of the question posed in the original post, “God ordered an abortion?”  Well, no He didn’t.  And here’s why.

Previously I discussed the cultural connotation we have of what an abortion is, so I’m not going to revisit that in detail here.  Suffice it to say that in the text being discussed the translation used by the author clearly says “miscarry” not abortion.  Let’s take a look at the text again (taken from the original post):

Numbers 5:21 “here the priest is to put the woman under this curse—“may the LORD cause you to become a curse[d] among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell.”

In our world, a miscarriage and an abortion are two very different things.  What is different ab...

***If you have suffered an abortion please read this post first.***

If a flagrant misuse of God’s Word doesn’t motivate me to blog again… I don’t know what will.

We need to talk.  Not just you and me, Bloggy friends, but anyone who might fall prey to the confusing language and false pretenses of the post I am about to show you.  And, if you happen to be the author of this post, I also would like to have this conversation with you, because I fear you are being led far astray from the great blessings that are found in the Scripture.  I do not mean any disrespect toward you personally.

My righteous anger is turned not toward you but toward the Evil One who has led you astray, to the lies this world propagates as it turns hearts away from God.  “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Eph. 6:12)  So please, bear...

So, at the beginning of the year I posted all of my resolutions and promised that I’d keep you updated on the progress.  Umm… sorry about that.  So, in the spirit of doing what I say I’m going to do – here’s an update!

  1. Post a Series on Headcoverings… Haha… haha… ha. Ahem.  I have been working on this just about as often as I’ve been working on my other blog posts… if that tells you anything…  Although, I did read a wonderful blog post on the topic recently which I would highly recommend. There, now you have something thoughtful to read while I drag my feet.  I do feel better, thank you for asking.

  2. Clean the Kitchen and do the laundry – Every Day… Actually, progress in this resolution is the reason why I’m blogging today!  I finally got myself into a routine after the craziness of March.  I have a loose schedule I have been working from this week and it’s going very well!  Today is the second day in a row I’ve done EVERYTHING I planned to do – and I have...
