Calm down. This is not an article about God promoting abortion. 

Rather, it is about the basic principle that we can see God uses as the basis of His relationship with mankind. From the beginning, God had placed mankind in a position to choose. He did not coerce the first subjects, that is, He did not put a gun in their head to compel them to comply or die. They have the option to choose life or death (Genesis 2:16). Thus, God is prochoice but prolife to proliferate (Genesis 1:27-28).

God did not make a dumb fool designed to fail so that He could prove His stance. Imagine a man with the intelligence to give a name to every single element on earth, and who feels bored and lonely afterwards. We read that God made man at His image (Genesis 1:27) and a little bit less than Himself (Psalms 8:5) and even says that men are gods (John 10:34-36). We are not nobodies, unless we choose to become ones.

Even when God decided to make a nation that was expected to holy to Him by doing what He legislated to them, He never compelled them to obey. He appealed to them to choose life instead of death. But, whatever got into man in becoming like God from the power of the tree of knowledge, that virus keeps making mankind drift away from life, from God. The hack of the human after eating that fruit of knowledge is so powerful that no matter what cleaned version of man that God would start over with, man turns out to be already potentially infected.

Case and point. God had killed all mankind and took the best witness sample out of it to continue to populate the earth. With the passing of time, that pure sample of mankind goes back <to replicate the hack>. God did not seek to destroy mankind this time because it did not work the first time.

Again, He decided to breed a new race, the Israelites, from one faithful gene of the same parent, a half-brother and a half-sister. The new breed from Adam and Sarah did not fare any better than the other drifters. In fact, the new breed yearns after the drifters.

It was time for God to intervene. He became flesh and died instead of us to grant to whoever is willing the power to overcome the hack by sticking with the rules He had put in place for His chosen people. Forget it. Mankind shows no interest. God wept over the choice of His people. He just may not compel us, for whatever <truce> He agreed to, to choose only Him.

Yet, God said that there are some who will hear His voice who will come to assemble in one flock ().

If you are one who can hear His voice, let us come together to go look for the others!
Remember, when you join Jesus, you become a daily cross bearer ().

Genesis 2:16-17 JPS
(16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying: 'Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat;
(17) but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.'

Genesis 1:27 ASV
(27)  And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

John 10:34-36 ASV
(34)  Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
(35)  If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (and the scripture cannot be broken),
(36)  say ye of him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

Psalms 8:4-5 ASV
(4)  What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him?
(5)  For thou hast made him but little lower than God, And crownest him with glory and honor.

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as worshipped not the beast, neither his image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Revelation 20:4 ASV

Deuteronomy 30:11-20 ASV
(11)  For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not too hard for thee, neither is it far off.
(12)  It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it?
(13)  Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it?
(14)  But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
(15)  See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
(16)  in that I command thee this day to love Jehovah thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his ordinances, that thou mayest live and multiply, and that Jehovah thy God may bless thee in the land whither thou goest in to possess it.
(17)  But if thy heart turn away, and thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
(18)  I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish; ye shall not prolong your days in the land, whither thou passest over the Jordan to go in to possess it.
(19)  I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before thee life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed;
(20)  to love Jehovah thy God, to obey his voice, and to cleave unto him; for he is thy life, and the length of thy days; that thou mayest dwell in the land which Jehovah sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

(18) LITV And you shall lay these Words up in your hearts, and in your souls, and shall bind them for a sign on your hand. And they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. (19) And you shall teach them to your sons by speaking of them as you sit in your house, and as you walk in the way, and as you lie down, and as you rise up. Deuteronomy 11:18-19

Deuteronomy 30:19 JPS

(19) I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before thee life and death, the blessing and the curse; therefore choose life, that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed;
