Perhaps this is a good place for me to answer the question concerning the unborn. What about babies that are never born because of miscarriages or abortions? I remember how important that was to Donna and I because before we had our four children, we lost a little baby in a miscarriage. And that might seem, you know, not very important to people who've never been through it, but if you've ever been through that, you know that is a very, very sad situation.
We had not had any children. We'd been praying for children, and it looked like God had answered the prayer and then 5 months into the pregnancy, we lost the baby. And we laid on the bed and cried. I don't need to apologize for that. We did. What happens to those little ones? We've talked about that this week, that we have a child in heaven that we've never met, and that one day, according to the Scripture, we're going to see that baby and we're gonna know that child.
It's not true to say we only have four children; we have five. One of them's already in heaven. I believe, as do all who accept the authority of God's Word, that a child is a person from the moment of conception. Since that is true, then all of these unborn ones, for whatever reasons they have been unborn, will be taken by the Father to heaven. These principles apply to those who in days past perhaps in weakness or in fear or in unbelief allowed an abortion. There is no one I know who is more sensitive to this issue than a woman who has had an abortion.
And I wanna say to all of you gals, if that's happened to you, God has forgiven you. That is not the unpardonable sin. God has forgiven you and he's even gone beyond that. He is so gracious to you that one day that little one that was aborted, you will hold in your arms.
