Q. According to 2 Samuel 12:18-23 When David’s baby son died, he didn’t mourn but went back to his normal routine. When asked about it he said, “I will go to him but he will not return to me.” He meant he would see his son in heaven. Why don’t abortion providers use this to claim they’re actually saving most of the babies they abort from growing up and going to Hell by sending them straight to Heaven?
A. 2 Samuel 12:18-23 lends support to my claim that in Romans 7:9 Paul was saying children under the age of accountability have eternal life. And I agree that statistically most people would be saved from hell if they went straight to heaven before being born.
But if abortion providers used this to justify their actions, they would be agreeing that the babies they abort are living human beings. This is something they have always denied because to admit it would mean they are taking a human life, which is against both God’s law and man’s.
It would also mean they were agreeing there is a heaven and a hell, which would mean there is a God who will hold us all accountable in the end.
There is no provision in God’s Law that says, “the ends justify the means.” What it says is the violation of God’s Law is a sin that requires the death of the sinner. Only by becoming born again can a person escape this penalty.
