A Charlottesville Presbyterian pastor has made a shocking claim: Decisions to abort a child can be guided by the Holy Spirit.
First of all, the Holy Spirit is the Lord and giver of life. He gives us the strength to choose life, not the permission to take it.
Secondly, this pastor’s claim is a blatant abandonment of responsibility, not really any different from the claim, “The devil made me do it.” Each of us is responsible for the good we choose and the evil we choose. No matter who tells us that it’s OK to kill a baby, our duty is to say No.
This pastor reminds us that there are many false prophets in our midst, using words of faith to justify child killing.
It’s amazing how many things are blamed on the Holy Spirit.
