Abortion and Ambassadors for Christ
This a recent quote from Dr. Mike Heiser from his book “The Unseen Realm” in which he describes the importance of understanding humans as the image of God in relation to the sin of abortion.
“Humankind was created as God’s image. If we think of imaging as a verb or function, that translation makes sense. We are created to image God, to be his imagers. It is what we are by definition. The image is not an ability we have, but a status. We are God’s representatives on earth. To be human is to image God.”
The “medium” of God’s image is humanity. If you are human, you are in the image of God, regardless of the qualities you possess.
Heiser suggests that the image of God is a status, and imaging God is something we do by being human. Used as a verb, it means to make an image, to portray, or to project on a surface. In a very real sense, being made in God’s image means you are projecting God on earth—wherever you are, and whatever you look like. Whether you’re in the womb, or reading words on a screen, you are in the image of God.
We are “God projectors” that turn on at conception and never turn off.
Being the image of God qualifies us as humans, and “salvation in no one else” qualifies us to be ambassadors for Christ—abortion kills a human in the image of God, and an ambassador for Christ when that human accepts salvation.
Ac 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
2 Co 5:20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
Satan hates everything about God, and Satan certainly does not want “ambassadors for Christ”. Abortion and Planned Parenthood is a satanic cult.
