Hey everyone! I have a question for you guys to help me out with today. I want to start by saying I love the puritans. I hold them in high esteem and reverence as thinkers of the Bible. Secondly, I would like to say all of us believe that abortion is sin. Minus the nuances and exceptions that you may hold to, general abortion is murder. I would also say that most of us would say that a real christian cannot believe in abortion. Sure there may be some exceptions but any person now that is born again cannot support abortion. (Feel free to discuss this as this second premise serves as a pillar for my question) So, how then, as we reformed believers who love and support puritans, knowing that some had the flaws of owning slaves and not standing against the idea of slavery, can we also say that there is no way a true christian can believe in abortion? In other words, we love the puritans. And we are so quick to explain away, not really justify, but just more explain why we can still read and enjoy the puritans even if they owned slaves. But when it comes to abortion, we are more quick to question someone's true salvation if they believe in abortion? How can these two actions/ideals be consistent with one another?
