Buddhism and abortion There is no single Buddhist view concerning abortion. He said, "I think abortion should be approved or disapproved according to each circumstance. Abortion and Christianity and Catholic Church and abortion There is scholarly disagreement on how early Christians felt about abortion, and no explicit prohibition of abortion in either the "Old Testament" or "New Testament" books of the Christian Bible.
In spite of the fact we as humans cannot know everything, it is absolutely necessary that we make sense of what we do claim to know. What we tout as fact must add up and be consistent within itself.
Solomon said; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding. If you seek her as Judaism and abortion, and search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding: Then you will understand righteousness and justice, Equity and every good path.
In my search for sense-making understanding I have come to some conclusions that are intellectually satisfying but have left me without good standing in either the Jewish or Christian communities. Both sides would call my positions heresy. At the same time, I fully acknowledge that God has been involved in the lives of individuals of both Jewish and Christian persuasions.
For myself, I was raised in Protestant Evangelical Christianity and was very active in it for many years.
I saw numerous answers to prayer as I continued to struggle for better understanding. No longer do I interpret them as proof of possessing superior doctrine. People tend to see themselves as either good or evil, and therefore deserving either all of heaven or all of hell.
Man seems blind to the fact that he was given the capacity to grow in favor with God. Today, the best of individuals in either Christianity or Judaism might rate at 2. But a rating of 2 can appear impressive in a world where the general level is 1 or lower.
Jewish and Christian doctrine has responded by sedating its followers from the pain of this reality with a concept of the sovereignty of God borrowed from Greek Hellenistic philosophy.
In short, it suggests that we are who, and what we are, because God has for-ordained it to be so. At the same time this ultra-sovereign picture of God allows man to see himself as the best there is.
This always leads to a sense of pride. The natural outflow from pride is to believe one has found the exclusive way to salvation, and all others are doomed to hell.
This bigoted posturing is particularly repulsive. The self-serving aspects of this fear mongering should be evident.
It is nothing short of psychological extortion. No one has cornered the market on eternal life. Eternal life in a better place is relatively easy to obtain. As the title suggests, the teachings of Yeshua and that of Paul, the supposed apostle, are not at all compatible with each other.
It is Pauline doctrine that is the source of most of the problem in Christianity. I also show how he continually abused the Hebrew Scriptures to help sell his faulty doctrines. I show that he misinterpreted his own conversion experience as a meeting with his own glorious destiny, when in reality, it was nothing more than an ultimatum to stop the persecution of the Messianic believers.
Because of what Paul believed concerning his destiny, he naturally became conceited and continually tried to upstage the very apostles who had spent over three years with Yeshua.
He was too proud to learn from them, but instead had to receive his doctrine by "divine revelation". After Yeshua, Paul was the first of many to have come along in history with a "new" revelation.
Not only do I expose Paul as a false apostle, but I also show that he is in all probability the very false apostle and "liar" Yeshua commended the Ephesian congregation for exposing as recorded in the book of Revelation. This is the teaching that God has made Christianity the new true Israel.
This attitude found its legitimacy in replacement-theology. This arrogant and obnoxious doctrine could not be further from the truth. I say this as one who was born a Gentile.
What I present as the truth of the gospel of Yeshua is nothing new. In an age when the world is on the fast track to destruction, many preachers, priests, and rabbis, are calling their flocks to return to the older principles of a few generations ago.
I suggest we need to go back much further. We need to return to the teachings that Yeshua left with the men he had trained for over three years. His doctrine was unquestionably the purest Judaism.
They continued to abide by the Law of Moses, including the offering of burnt offerings, right up to the destruction of the Temple almost forty years after Yeshua ascended to heaven.
These well established facts of history should cause some question about a maverick like Paul who spent no more than a few minutes only hearing the voice of Yeshua on the road to Damascus.While Judaism takes a far less stringent approach to abortion than do many pro-life denominations of Christianity, providing explicit exceptions for threats to a mother’s life and rabbinic support for terminating a pregnancy in a host of other situations, there is nonetheless broad objection to .
Bahá'í Faith. Abortion, for the purpose of eliminating an unwanted child, and permanent sterilization are generally forbidden to Bahá'ís unless there is some medical reason for it.
