Yes He is. God is pro-choice.

He’s been pro-choice since the Garden of Eden..

Unfortunately some headstrong and misguided women, profiteers, scientists and doctors hijacked the “pro-choice” phrase to associate it with those who promote, practice or condone abortion. They roll out a litany of reasons for their pro-abortion position, none of which, however, is Biblical. In fact their pro-abortion thinking is anti-biblical.

He gave it to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. God created them and gave them a home in a garden paradise. God met all their needs, blessed them and cared for them.  Their lives were free from sin, evil and temptation. They lived in perfect Paradise in harmony and fellowship with God. There was no good. There was no evil. Just the glory of God.

God created two trees in that garden, the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He told them they could eat from any tree in the garden. But if they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (which gave man the gift of choice), He told them, they would surely die. It wasn’t the good or evil that did the couple in. It was their choice to prefer “knowledge” of good and evil instead of life. Their choice changed the world forever, for Adam and Eve and for each of us as well.

God gave us the gift of choice, I believe, so that when we’re confronted with temptation, we’ll choose Him and not sin.  We’ll choose submitting to His will and not living by our own devices. We’ll choose His ways and not our ways. We’ll choose to love Him more than we love ourselves or our families. We’ll choose to love Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior and not death and eternal separation from God.

God is pro-choice. He created us to love Him and each other and to bring glory to Him. He did not create us to destroy life He created

  1. Hi Steve, thanks for sharing this post. We praise God for the gift of choice and continually pray to strive choosing HIM first in our lives everyday. I want to thank you for your prayers for me and my family during the earthquake. We are safe in God’s hands though we are saddened by the lives lost in our sister city. May God always bless you as you encourage us here through your writing. Keeping in touch, Joyce

    1. Joyce,
      I’m so glad you are all safe. I pray there will be no more earthquakes in your home. Sounds as if you were right in the thick of things in your own house. I can’t begin to imagine what that must have been like. Enduring such a storm has to take giant leaps of faith. I’m so happy you were not hurt. I pray the devastation was minimal to your country. Please keep me posted on how you and your family are doing after the earthquake. Steve

    1. Thanks, Noel. I appreciate your comment and thoughts.I didn’t condemn those who might disagree with us. God wants us to pray that they will one day open their hearts to God’s truth, get to the end of themselves and trust God for the things to believe and not believe.

  3. You hit a home run with this post! Free will is, indeed, a gift from God. We have choices to make, whether good or bad. I choose Him! Thank you Steven for your wonderful insight.

    1. What happens to my free will when someone excercizes their free will to be a bad person. For example. When I was a child, I was raped repeatedly, beaten repeatedly…I had a very bad childhood. Where was my free will to be safe?

      1. Barbi,
        Unfortunately, it sounds as if you had little, if any, free will as a child. And I am so very sorry for the abuse you experienced. I have a friend who endured horrible abuse for years. She now seeks to help women who have been victims of abuse. I have included a link to her website. I think Jessie may be able to help you. I certainly hope so. May God richly bless you and deliver you from the pain and suffering you must have experienced through no fault of your own.

  4. Steven, my minister says that God gave us the very best gift and the very worst curse all in the same package: it is called free will! The onus is really on us, Brother Steve! Our journey for all eternity is our choice and ours alone. He simple stands at the door and knocks, loving us always,requesting permission to enter our hearts. We choose whether to open that door or not.
