Faith can inform opinions about abortion on both sides of the political debate, but the Bible itself says nothing directly about the topic, a biblical scholar explains.
To use the Bible to prove anything is greatly debatable for it is a book of thoughts and beliefs of some of the people of that time. However,, the bible was not written at that time, as it was written many years later and there have been many translations.
So, it could be said that what is in the Bible is the thoughts, opinions, beliefs and interpretations of persons after that time quoting and stating how they believed the original persons beliefs, who the texts are deemed to be from, were.
Many alterations and interpretations could have taken place and even more following the translations. So, to say the Bible is true, is only as true as their own beliefs now and is and very often open to many more interpretations.
Beliefs are what they are and only to each individual and beliefs should never be forced upon others, as we are all entitled to our own beliefs and live our lives as we individually wish to.
Religious fanatics always hold extreme beliefs and unfortunately religious fanatism and its political interpretations is what is currently being used to determine the Law and Justice of America, when justice should be for all the people and religion and politics should have no power on justice.
So, abortion should be an individual decision and religion and political beliefs should never overpower an individuals decision.
This is also for same sex marriage and other similar issues.
It amazes me, that many of these religious fanatics are also showing racial discrimination, when to follow their Christian beliefs they should be viewing all people as being equal and not some being more equal than others, just because they are not in their own image.
Also they believe Christ was a blond white man, when this would have been far from the truth, as he would have been some shade of brown/black. However, Christianity was overtook by Western followers who would never contend that Christ was anything but white, as white was seen as purity, which throughout history as been proved, many times, not to be so. For that is a form of abuse and abuse should never be tolerated.
White is purely a colour and should never be used as means of superiority, for to do so, is a mis-reputation of Christianity, for we all are to be equal.
Do not abuse Christianity for your own means.
