O Untimely Birth

Not every bud on the vine matures into fruit; some fall and rot in the earth, and nourish the roots. It can be said that in a manner they are born again.

Miscarriage, stillbirth and crib death account for millions of infant mortalities worldwide every year; it’s been a natural aspect of the human condition since man was cast out of the garden.

The inscrutable, omniscient God, who knows the number of hairs upon your head and all the thoughts in your heart, takes every last one of these babes up into His arms. Jesus described it thus: 'In heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.' Matthew 18:10.

He also addressed their existence in His book long, long ago.

Job 3: 11-16 ‘Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly? Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck? For now should I have lain still and had been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest… as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which never saw the light. There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.’

It is a biblical truth essentially repeated in Ecclesiastes 4: 3-4, ‘Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive. Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.’ And Ecclesiastes 6: 3 ‘If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he.’

Would a true child of God abort a fetus? Of course not. Why then do you fret when they you surely regard as the spellbound sons and daughters of the devil off their own young? And why do you seek to legislate the sin of others? We all know who the LORD says is qualified to cast those stones.

Speaking of stones, let us segue to Matthew 3:9, where John the Baptist denounces the Pharisees (the ancient equivalent of today’s self-righteous republican ‘Christians’), saying: ‘God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham.’

Knowing that, do you think that even one soul God determines has been or ever will be lost? In John 6:39, Jesus says: ‘And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which He hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.’

Jesus also accuses the Pharisees on various occasions, including Matthew 23:23: ‘Woe unto ye, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.’

In this you pharisaical hypocrites make a show of your piety by taking up your indignation against abortion, but turn your backs upon the infants the moment they take their place among the living. You despise spending tax dollars on the social programs that would feed, house, educate and give them health care, and by opposing such seek to subject them to the very evils the Bible says they’re better off never knowing. Abortion is abomination, but so are ruthless bankers who devour houses, making people homeless to accumulate money they’ll never spend; and heartless health insurers who alchemize blood by visiting death upon the impoverished; and the soulless politicians who enable and protect them in the name of God. And even if the abortion ruling were ever overturned, the money saved would not be spent on the resulting babies—it would be divvied by and to the bankers and the insurers and the liars whom the very Bible says had been better off were they aborted in the first place.


  1. Once again, great post.
    It is a good answer to the modern day hypocrites that use Jesus' name to justify their own sins of power and greed.
    Thank you.
