You should have thought about this question before you carried out the act. Its done now. I suppose God will forgive you. He is a forgiving God. But you still have a lot of trouble to deal with. Your husband,for one. And sometimes people die from abortions. If you are well, you really need to repent and thank God for bringing you through this terrible ordeal. Abortion is a serious matter and can do much harm to your mental state and your body. You need to seek the Lord for answers,repent and try to sort aout all of these problems in your life.

It is written, all manner of sin shell be forgiven unto men, but blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. Matt 12:31-32. I pray you (husband and wife) work things according to you vow because "God hates" divorce. Malachi 2:16. Men time to grow up and stop being "mama's boys" and become husbands according to the word. "For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife..." Matt 19:4-5. Yes you can be forgiven! Confess your fault, He is faithful and just to forgive. 1 John 1:9. Repent, believe in the mercy of God, and be merciful. Forgive you husband for his mistakes and you shell be forgiven, forgive not and you will not be forgiven. It is written. Matt 5:7, 6:14-15

Betty, in a way you are right, not everyone who calls Him Lord will enter heaven. I believe the evidence of their fruits will give testimony of who they really are. If they did not have a contrited heart, their confession was worthless. Yes, too many of those. Many because they heard the wrong gospel that many here teach. A gospel that is men-centered, not God-centered. Sooner or later they too will fall away. They need the right foundation, the real Christ. That is what Luke 6:46 is talking about. Listen to what He says, "Whosoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them," I will show you whom he is like:" goes on to talk about the foundation, and those who hear and do, build on the foundation of The Rock.
---MarkV. on 9/24/09

markv- The parable meant some people who think they have been good Christians are going to find out God did not condone everything they did and said. Of course He knows every creature He ever made. But He did not adopt into the family of God all who call Him Lord. Remember, He also said, "Why do you call Me Lord, Lord and do not do the things which I say?" Luke 6:46
---Betty on 9/23/09

Betty, you say the reason God said He didn't know them was because they were not doing His will. So you are saying, He lied because He was mad at them? And after bringing them to faith, changing their hearts, giving them eyes to see and ears to hear, the Holy spirit to endwell them, God has to undo all that He did, because He was mad, even to make a false statement that He didn't know them. Betty, that doesn't hold much water. This people had evil in their hearts, and again, it is not speaking literally about people who came to Christ. It is a parable of a servant and his master.
---MarkV. on 9/22/09

Betty,There is no hope for the sinner because sin shall not enter and we cannot be saved if we sin, period..Therefore the reason for the Cross.Christ came to put away sin. Thats why we are saved by grace through faith, not through repenting of sin as some think they can because you will still sin again and again and will remain a sinner forever. There is no hope without the blood of Christ. HE came to take sin away. Sin cannot have power over us. Sin is not counted against us. We are dead to sin. This is truth and the truth shall set you free. We are now saints, not sinners.
The Gospel is freedom from sin.
---duane on 9/22/09

duane- It is possible and likely that Christians will sin. IJohn 2:21 "I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it...." IJohn 2:1 "My little children, these things write I unto you, that you sin not." IJohn 1:8 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." Peter the Apostle sinned when he denied Christ three times.
---Betty on 9/22/09

markv- The people spoken of in those verses of scripture thought they were doing God's will & were Christians. The reason Jesus said He would say to them He never knew them, depart from Him, was they did not do all of His will, they only did the things that suited them. IPeter 4:18 "And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
---Betty on 9/22/09

Christians live by faith, we dont go out to work iniquity. We have a new life, we have a changed mind. We are set free from sin, In HIM we HAVE forgiveness of sin. To be Christian means to be forgiven and accepted.
Christ died for something, that being, setting us free from sin. If you dont believe that, your not a Christian and you havent experienced the new life in HIM.
HE is the way,the truth and the life.
---duane on 9/22/09

Betty, if God said, "I never knew you" don't you think God never did? That he was never one of his children? Or do you think God closes His eyes and forgets or that He lies? Another clue that that you should have understood was never one of His childen should have been when you read, "But if that evil servant should say in his heart" Doesn't evil mean evil? There was evil in his heart, how could he be a child of God, a christian? When you read faithful servant you automaticly think they were born again Christians, but it is just a parable of a servant to his master. Not a genuine believer to Christ.
---MarkV. on 9/22/09

God will forgive you, you have to repent of the sin you have committed then the other thing you have to do is forgive yourself as well. If your husband leaves you that is his will and he has to answer to god for that, but you did the right thing by telling him the truth.
---jennifer on 9/21/09

duane & others- The faithful are not always forgiven. Matthew 24:48-51 "But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming, And shall begin to smite his fellowservants {including KILL - ABORT} and to eat and drink with the drunken, The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." There will be some who think they are fine Christians (Matt. 7:22) & Jesus will say to them, "I never knew you: depart from Me ye that work iniquity...." Matthew 7:23
---Betty on 9/21/09

If you ask Him, YES. Must be sincere and GO, sin no more.
---catherine on 9/20/09

Mat 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
Mat 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
---Wayne8738 on 9/19/09

The faithful are always forgiven. There is no in and out of forgiveness.

Mima ... Sorry, my reply to you may have seemed to misrepresent you, but I still can't for the life of me understand what else yours of 9/10 and 9/13 could mean.

Mima ... To my mind the instruction that we are to forgive 70 X 7 means that we are to forgive an unlimited number of times (and that God will similarly forgive us)

From what you say, it seems that, secure in the knowledge that you are OSAS, you go out deliberately to sin again and again.

That is impressive evidence of the working of God in your life.
---alan8566_of_uk on 9/13/09

---alan8566 if it is not 70 times seven what number do you suggest?
---mima on 9/13/09

Well Mima ... Yes we are to forgive 70 X 7

But I don't think I can deliberately go on sinning because I know I'll get continually be forgiven

That is the folly of extreme OSAS

God is a loving god and he loves all of us sinner or non-sinner girl all you have to do is ask god for forgiveness and you are forgiven
---unity on 9/10/09

gale- You should care how many abortions a woman has because it is murder. The Lord will not hold a woman guiltless for destroying life that He created. Creatures who love the Lord don't destroy somebody's child. Trusting in God makes a person give up sin, not continue in it. We have to give up sin in order to live unto God. God knows everything even before it happens. If He sees that a person is going to commit the same sins over & over He may decide not to forgive. Try that out. Forgiveness is up to God, not to us.
---Betty on 7/17/09

I don't care how many abortions a woman has. IF she repents, sincerely repents, it is under the blood. Removed as far as the east is from the west. Just keep in mind...Esau repented with tears yet he was never able to find the true place of repentance.

Yes, there is forgiveness. We have Prevenient Grace that comes form Jesus. The only thing that will keep you out of heaven is Blasphamy agianst the Holy Spirit or to denounce the name of Jesus. This is the Holy Spirit within you saying sin no more What you are feeling is remorse for your actions. Pray this, Lord I know I have sinned and there is nothing I can do on my own to make it right, but I ask you Lord forgive me, to wash me white as snow. Help me Lord to remove these thoughts from my mind and ease the pain in my heart for not giving life. Lord you created us to create and destroy, because of the fall we know this. Help me to always cherish life and sin no more.
---James on 7/16/09

Trish & Betty ... there is an element of truth in what each of you say.

I believe that a woman's sin of having one abortion can be forgiven ... that's where I agree with Trish

But she can't be genuinely repentant if she then goes on with a life-style which may get her pregnant again, thinking "If I get pregnant, then I'll just have another abortion, then get forgiven again"
---alan8566_of_uk on 7/16/09

Betty: You make so many inane assumptions, and accuse of so many lies, I don't know where to begin with you.

When Christ died, He died for ALL of my sins, past, present and future. He also died for all of the sins of Claud, including any and all abortions, past, present and future.

When will you show some fruit? Galatians 5
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
---Trish9863 on 7/15/09

trish- Scripture seems to bother you. I have not told any lies. I think that verse about Jesus warning people that he may hate them for mistreating children really slammed on your brakes. Now I hope you will park your car. 2Peter 2:21 "For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than after they have known it to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them." Mark 10:19 Jesus said do not kill. Matt. 7:22-23 Jesus said, "Many will say unto Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy Name & ... have cast out devils...done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Unforgiven Christians.

May I please add my two cents here, after reading this back and forth? ONLY GOD KNOWS THE HEART OF THE WOMAN WHO HAS AN ABORTION! Only God sees the pain and desparation she may be in at the time. Only God knows--the same God, by the way, who died for the mother's sins! And ours, lest we forget.
---Mary on 7/14/09

Betty: You twist scriptures constantly to serve your lies from Hell. I will not engage you in a verse by verse discussion. God's Word does not support your thesis that a person's sins can be forgiven today, but not tomorrow. I hope you are saved, because your posts don't show any fruit of the Spirit. Love, joy, peace, etc.
---Trish9863 on 7/14/09

trish- Why then did Jesus Christ say "But whoso shall offend one of these little ones that believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea." He didn't sound very forgiving about that. Furthermore, what I had said was this: He may not forgive you next time. Frankly, you don't know yourself if He would forgive someone a second time for abortion or not - especially if they knew they were wrong.
---Betty on 7/14/09

Betty: You constantly accuse me of saying or writing things that I just don't think or say. I never intimated that premeditated murder is acceptable. I will say that it is forgivable.

Based on what you say, anyone killing another human, knowing it is wrong, will not be forgiven, because if you sin, knowing that sin is wrong to begin with, makes it unforgivable, BASED ON WHAT YOU SAID.

Sin is forgivable, whether we know it is wrong before we do it, or not.

I do not advocate it, I just believe in God's grace to forgive.

Yes God will forgive you if you ask for forgiveness. You still have to face the consequence of that action which is murder. You took the life of an innocent, defenseless child. If I was your husband not only would I leave you I would have you prosecuted for murder.
---Jon on 7/13/09

trish- You write as if premediatated murder is acceptable. Abortion is murder. To do it once and find out it is wrong is bad enough, but to know it is wrong to kill an innocent unborn baby and do it anyway is likely something God may not forgive. Exodus 33:19 God said "I will be merciful to whom I will be merciful." Romans 9:15 "For He saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion." Romans 9:18 "Therefore He hath mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He hardeneth." Matt. 18:6 Jesus said if anyone offends a little child that believes in Him, he may as well have a millstone around his neck & drown.

Betty, WHERE are you getting YOUR theology?

You have posted some very serious erroneous statments on this board. Why are the moderators still letting you post?

To tell someone: He may not forgive you for it if there is a next time IS A LIE!

What about when Peter asked Jesus HOW MANY TIMES SHOULD I FORGIVE? Seventy times Seven Jesus said...he was giving a number we can't even calculate in a few seconds.

How would you like God to say to you, Betty, I'll forgive you this time, but if you do it again, I may very well NOT forgive you. WHERE IS THAT IN SCRIPTURE?

Psalm 50:21 God said, "These things have you done, and I kept silence: you thought I was altogether such a one as yourself: but I will reprove you, and set them in order before your eyes." 2Peter 2:21 For if they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them & are overcome, the last stated has become worse for them than the first." The Bible says a dog should not return to its own vomit & a pig should not, after washing, return to wallow in the mire. (2Peter 2:22) That's like repeating the same sin.
---Betty on 7/13/09

Betty: God forgives. PERIOD. Repeated sin still gets forgiven. Not that we should sin over and over, but to tell someone that God may not forgive in the future is a lie straight from Hell.
---Trish9863 on 7/12/09

Have you accepted Christ as your Savior and asked Him to forgive you of ALL your sin, past, present and future? Have you repented and asked Him to rule in your life? If so, then you are forgiven. Ask the Lord to rule in your heart and in your marriage. Pray for your husband and yourself to become the man and woman God desire you to be. God does forgive and will forgive, if you are His child and come to Him repentant.
---Trish9863 on 7/12/09

If you repent of that & all other sins with your whole heart. But you should never do it again, because it is murder. He may not forgive you for it if there is a next time.

If your husband is smart I would wish that he have the love of christ to forgive you, and it is none of your mother-in-law's business what goes on in your marriage, it is not her place. I hope you realize that abortion is wrong, in fact it is murder, but when one is ignorant they do stupid things, all one can do is repent and ask god for mercy. Your husband does not have any grounds to leave you regardless of your actions and if he can't forgive you with time, because it was his child that you took away from him, then he can expect the same unforgiveness from god for his sins.
