gossip.jpgI got into an interesting conversation yesterday. I was called on something I said and though I believe I was misstated, the door for misstatement should have never been opened. My immediate response was to come to my own defense and that was sin added to sin. I had obviously offended the individual and damaged his good name which is blaspheming (I will exposit this later in the post). I wanted to clear my name by confronting the individual who has misquoted me, but in front of me was the individual who wanted his name clear. During the conversation I began to feel what he felt and then understood exactly where he was coming from.

I remember when I first heard about blogging about 2 years ago. I didn’t know much about it but it peaked my interest as I went from site to site reading the discussions and it was refreshing to find African Americans who were Reformed and were also coming out of churches that happened to not be so sound in theology and practice. I thought to myself that I had something to say also. So my first blog was pretty much an outlet to deal with all of the pinned up pain of the Word of Faith and Apostolic movement that I was a part of for the first 9 years of this thing called Christianity. I found myself mirroring other blogs that would mock not only the “leaders” but also those who followed these leaders. I wanted to expose every lie, and slick tactic that they employed. I wrote about the crossfire of such an ambition and the sin committed in such a practice.

The “Resurrection” in the life of the believer is pivotal to say the least. Without the resurrection… well Apostle Paul said it best…. 1 Corinthians 15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then [is] our preaching vain, and your faith [is] also vain.Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised, your faith [is] vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

Since we are still on this topic of babies, family, abortion, etc…. I decided to introduce another issue that is somewhat relevant to the topics aforementioned in the most recent posts written by Lionel.  Do babies or children before the claimed age of accountability(in which no one knows the age) go to Heaven when they die? Let me also say that I have never lost a child and I am the father of Tyris Lamont Jr.(21 months old) I am not making light of this situation but in the same token do not want to give a false hope that cannot not be affirmed by scripture. My heart goes out to those who have lost babies by miscarriage, stillborns, or early deaths. I realize this becomes an issue when we try to figure out a way to get babies to heaven after premature death while staying true to scripture-never to compromise to sooth our frail consciences.

My position on this: I believe with the knowledge I possess concerning the attributes of God and Him being loving and kind and everything else; I say that God would allow unborn babies to go to Heaven. With that said, let me also say I and many others have a very hard time making this argument from scripture. Many people make arguments mainly from the Old Testament to secure their position and cannot be brought to fruition amongst the New Testament revealed revelation. I would like to examine briefly some of the arguments of people who say that without a doubt they can assure the eternal security of the unborn.

I want to preface this post with this statement “This post is not for the sake of aruging”!!!!!

After reading the comments on the previous post I now have to ask this question in scenario format. I was speaking to my brother Saiko today and he said that the woman who terminates the life in case of the rape is “murdering” the baby. Which I agree that abortion is murder; however, I believe it is murder only in the sense that it is malicious. I believe the bible deals with Murder as it stems from revenge, anger, jealously, lust, envy and that the law under the Old Covenant had different ramifications in different circumstances. So I asked Saiko about this scenario in which he said it would be okay to take this man’s life which I think goes hand in hand. If one is given the liberty the other is also.
