Harbour Faith Community hosts pro-abortion activist

Psalm 139:13-16: “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”

How beautiful are the words above, penned by King David around 3,000 years ago.

How beautifully does David, under God’s inspiration, articulate the special care and note God takes of each and every one of us from the moment we are conceived in the womb.

While “yet being unperfect”, ie the body as yet not fully developed in the womb, God had already shown His care for the unborn child.

So important is the unborn child in the womb that all David’s “members were written” down by God, “which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them”.

This refers to the gradual growth and progression of the baby in the womb and clearly states how precious human life, even its earliest stages, is in the sight of God.

Having this knowledge and revelation from God, it makes it all the more sickening to see the campaign to murder the unborn indiscriminately come so close to having its way in Northern Ireland.

Come 21 October, unless God steps in to the affairs of men to prevent this happening, the process will begin to legalise infanticide, commonly euphemistically described as abortion, in our land.

There has been significant uproar caused by this in our land, with many of various denominations and faiths publicly and volubly expressing their anger and distress at such a vile proposal.

Many churches and church leaders have stated their opposition to such wickedness, and that is absolutely to their credit.

Indeed, it is inconceivable how anyone who claims to be a Christian could possibly seek to excuse the murder of the unborn or seek to equivocate or quibble over whether abortion is, in fact, permissible.

However, that is exactly what happened on Thursday night past, 19 September, and indeed will be done once more next Thursday night, 26 September.

The Harbour Faith Community, based in Carrickfergus and led by Steve Ames (pictured, top), held an event entitled ‘Faith and Choice – Conversations with Kellie Turtle’.

The promotional post on Harbour Faith Community’s facebook page states that they will “welcome Kellie Turtle, who is an activist with Alliance for Choice. She will share some of her journey as a person of faith who also has experience of accessing an abortion in England”.

It further said that she would “explore some of the myths and realities of what it means to end a pregnancy”.

Apparently the purpose of such an event is because “thoughtful conversations around issues such as abortion, reproductive rights and choice are virtually non-existent In churches and faith groups”.

“Thoughtful conversations”, of course, is a self-serving, self-indulgent euphemism for disgracefully trying to apologise and excuse the murder of the unborn, the forcible extraction of a helpless baby from the safety and comfort of its mother’s womb, the literal binning of a tiny little human being.

A quick scan of Kellie Turtle’s facebook page shows she is highly unlikely to engage in anything resembling a “thoughtful conversation”, as she is vehemently campaigning for the “right” for mothers to dispense with their own children.

Take this “thoughtful” post on her facebook page where she strongly encourages, shall we say, all her facebook friends to attend a pro-abortion march in Belfast, which took place on 7 September.

Introducing her comments, she says that only one individual has no excuse not to follow her command to attend the pro-infanticide procession.

As for the rest, she says “everyone else better be there or you’ll be cursed by the gods to never be free to choose anything ever again”.

The irony presumably is lost on this holder of “thoughtful conversations”.

Whilst advocating what she terms “choice”, she is seeking to remove the choice from everyone else she knows to attend a march in support of baby murder.

Indeed the poster on her facebook page promoting the march says “we won’t stop until abortion access is free, safe, legal and local”.

That sounds very nuanced and thoughtful, doesn’t it?

Of course, by safe, she means there ought to be no adverse health ramifications for the woman choosing to destroy her own flesh and blood. There is no concern for the safety of the child, else the woman seeking the murder of her child wouldn’t be looking such a despicable act to be carried out.

Even more grimly ironic from her facebook page is a post where she rages against “anti-vaxxers” (parents who oppose giving their children vaccinations). We have no interest in entering that debate, but Kellie Turtle tells those reading her post: “Don’t be part of putting their lives in danger”.

This is symptomatic of the bizarre mental jump that abortion supporters seem to be able to make – killing a baby in the womb is totally fine but once the baby is born it seems to magically become a human in that instant.

And for Harbour Faith Community to be giving such a wicked notion a vehicle just serves to show even more fully how utterly anti-Christian this supposedly Christian gathering is.

The outrageously ungodly nature of Harbour Faith Community has been clearly highlighted on this page before.

This includes its proud declaration of support for sodomy as well as the despicable comments made by its leader, Steve Ames, that the gospel of Jesus Christ is “not that different from a standard protection racket”.

And now they are seeking to introduce the notion that abortion is not so bad as other churches say it is.

It is not up to us to decide if a baby gets to live, either inside or outside the womb.

Deuteronomy 32:39: “See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.”

1 Samuel 2:6: “The Lord killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.”

God is sovereign and we ought not to interfere with the lives of the helpless and harmless to end them simply because the mother has decided, for whatever reason, they don’t want the child.

The sixth commandment makes it pretty clear for us.

Exodus 20:13 says: “Thou shalt not kill.”

It doesn’t say “thou shalt not kill unless you unexpectedly fall pregnant”.

It doesn’t say “thou shalt not kill unless your baby is a boy and you would prefer a girl”.

It simply states, “thou shalt not kill”.

Yet what Harbour Faith Community is doing is grotesquely striving to muddy the water around an issue which so obviously is clear cut.

Of course, Harbour Faith Community will say we are demonstrating another example of what they term the “virtually non-existent thoughtful conversations” on the matter among many professing Christians.

We couldn’t care less that they think this.

It is crystal clear that it is wrong to destroy children.

Jesus said to “suffer the little children to come unto me”, He had a special care for children.

Let us have that same care and let us not allow ourselves to be swayed from the Biblical view that to slay the innocent is to do a grave wrong, something God will look upon most unfavourably.

2 Kings 24:3-4: “Surely at the commandment of the Lord came this upon Judah, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did; And also for the innocent blood that he shed: for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; which the Lord would not pardon.”

God would not pardon the shedding of innocent blood and brought the enemies of Israel in upon them to conquer and destroy them.

What fate awaits a land which makes legal the slaughter of the innocent, worse still for a supposed church which supports it?
