Top 5 Most Ignored/Hated Bible Passages of the Religious Left

5. Psalm 139:13-16
13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Obviously the Left hates this passage because it shouts out the pro-life message. The passage tells us that every unborn child God personally knows, is created by God, and is wonderful! There is no such thing as an unwanted child. No matter the situation in which that child was conceived and no matter the health of that child – that is a God wanted child.
Notice in these verses that the unborn child is not just part of the woman’s body to God, as pro-abortion people claim. The life is separate and individually known and loved by God. The mother doesn’t even know she is pregnant when it happens – but God does.
Abortion is a heavily debated topic. Many Christians remain silent on it or are even pro-choice. They focus on not wanting to make decisions for other people. But what are God’s thoughts on abortion? Some rightly point out that the word abortion is never in the Bible. True – but neither is trinity, but we know it is true. We know God loves the unborn from this passage. And we can find His views on abortion with the aid of some other key verses to go along with this one in Psalms.
The Lord hates… hands that shed innocent blood. Proverbs 6:16-17
And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. Acts 17:25
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” Jeremiah 1:5
“Did not He who made me in the womb make him, and the same one fashion us in the womb?” Job 31:15
Isaiah 49:5 “And now says the Lord, who formed me from the womb to be His servant…”
And we also have the Didache, which is the first chatechism of Chrisianity, written around 100-150 AD. It states clearly: “You shall not murder a child by abortion nor kill one who has been born.”
Clearly God hates the killing of innocent life and considers babies in the womb just that. And since God hates abortion, the Left hates this passage.
