I can see it now. The haters of God are just salavating at this one like rabid wolves ready to devour any lambs of God who wish to defend God's good name, and his good character. I can just see them. They are foaming at the mouth because they totally believe that God is this crazy maniac who just loves to 'kill babies' and he 'loves to send people to hell.' But you know that's just like the devil. He always likes to use half-truths and he likes to use the Bible to deceive people. He did it with Eve.

He said, "Yea hath God said...?" - Genesis chapter 3. So nothing is new. People use the Bible to deceive all the time. The Bible says, "Not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully." - 2 Corinthians chapter 4. And that's exactly what haters of God do. They use the Bible deceitfully.

But before I get into this heated topic about God being a so-called baby killer, let me read to you an exert out of the Bible. It comes from Acts chapter 25:7 -

"And when he was come, the Jews which came down from Jerusalem stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, WHICH THEY COULD NOT PROVE."

Paul, like our Lord Jesus, had piles upon piles of accussations against him which his enemies could not prove. So many, that it would have been ridiculous to try to answer all of them. Hence the reason why when Jesus was accused before Pontias Pilate, he simply kept silent. He kept silent because he knew that he didn't have to defend himself against all of those unfounded and ridiculous accusations against him. The Jews accused Jesus of being an enemy of the state, of claiming himself to be King, and of being a mover of sedition. Yet, in the end, it was Barabbas, a murderer himself, who was released, and Jesus, an innocent man, was crucified. And even Pilate himself admitted that he found no fault in Jesus, which means he knowingly gave a righteous man over to the death penalty.

So today I am going to try to defend my Saviour from an attack that has been flung against him like doo-doo. Yet, like the millions of other false accusations against him, this one which I shall address is also unfounded.

Now, let's get right down to it. The accusation which stands against God from his enemies is that he is a murderer of innocent children.

Now before I try to defend God, let me point out a HUGE hypocrisy.

Here we have vain, wicked men putting a righteous and holy God on trial, as if they have any authority to do so, and then fabricate lies by using half-truths to condemn him of a crime he did not commit, while at the same time completely overlooking the real facts, and thereby condemning an innocent God to character assassination.

Yet at the same time, we have these same wicked men committing atrocious crimes themselves, being guilty of ABORTION, and of being desirous to depopulate the entire world's population through murder by 90%.

Ted Turner, who supposedly was an atheist at one point, said this in an interview with Audubon magazine:

“A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal."
Mikhail Gorbachev, the former leader of the Soviet Union, said:
"Cut the population by 90% and there aren't enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage."

But according to the Washington Post, the world is not overpopulated:

"[Misconception #]1 The world is overpopulated: Sure, 7 billion is a big number. But most serious demographers, economists and population specialists rarely use the term “overpopulation” — because there is no clear demographic definition." - Five Myths About The World's Population, http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/five-myths-about-the-worlds-population/2011/10/26/gIQArjSWmM_story.html

Who are the ones really pushing for a depopulation of the world? Who are the ones really pushing for the legalization of abortion, and POST-BIRTH abortion? You guessed it... UNBELIEVERS.

According to U.S. Representative Chris Smith, The Sword of the Lord Newspaper reported this in its news article titled, "Premeditated Murder of Newborn Babies:"

"In late February, two bioethicists - Dr. Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva - published an outrageous 'paper' in the Journal of Medical Ethics justifying the deliberate, premeditated murder of newborn babies during the first days and weeks after birth. Guibilini and Minerva wrote 'when circumstances occur after birth that would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissable."
Sword of the Lord Newspaper, March 30, 2012

The newspaper article goes on to say that the reason that could be used for justifying the murder of babies after they have left the womb is "inconvenience" and "financial strain." So because of financial hardships we should be allowed to murder our own children?

Man I wonder how the Pilgrims got by when they had 10 - 15 children per household, and living on lower incomes than what most people live on today. Guess they should have killed their own children too, right?

How ridiculous. The Bible says, "I have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread." - Psalms 34.

God can take care of your children. Don't you worry about that. But for the love of God, do not kill your children just because of financial strain, or because of inconvenience.

The Bible says, "These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood..." - Proverbs 6:16-17

God hates the killing of children. In fact, God gave very clear commandments in the Old Testament against it.

In Exodus chapter 22 he says:

"22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;

24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless." - Exodus 22:22-24

Here we can clearly see that God hates the murdering of innocent children.

But you know, the atheists love to point out all those instances where the Bible says God took the life of a child.

Now wait just a minute. Let's first define our terms. What does the word "kill" mean? And is killing a sin?

Let's first look at the 10 commandments:

"Thou shalt not kill." - Exodus 20:13

Okay, so God commands here in Exodus not to kill. Let's look at other places in the Bible where this commandment is repeated:

"Thou shalt not kill." - Deuteronomy 5:17

Again, it says not to kill. What about somewhere else.

"Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment..." - Matthew 5:21

Here we see that Jesus quoted the ten commandments, and he basically repeated what he said thousands of years ago to Moses. Thou shalt not kill.

Yet, we know that not ALL killing is a bad thing. Because if all killing was bad, then it would be a sin to kill ANY living thing, like a deer, or a goat, or a cow, which are all things we kill to eat.

And even in Ecclesiastes, God says,

"1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to KILL...." - Ecclesiastes 3:1-3

So we see that killing is not always a bad thing. David said in regards to his cousin Joab, that he "shed the blood war" during a time of peace. Which in that case was murder. The blood of war is not necessarily a bad thing. If it was, then we could not justify our own country of America of going to war with Iraq, or Afghanistan. We could not have justified going to war with Hitler to stop him from killing the Jews.

So what is it? Which kind of killing a bad thing?

"17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no MURDER..." - Matthew 19:17-18

Ahh, here we go. Now we're onto something. Here we read in Matthew chapter 19, Jesus quotes the same 10 commandments that he quoted in Matthew 5, but this time, he used the word 'murder' instead of 'kill.' Why? To show that there is quite a significant difference between murdering and killing. The word murder carries a connotation that describes the shedding of innocent blood, whereas the word 'kill' can mean anything from striking off a dog's neck, to butchering a man who had just walked down some dark alley.

"Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." - 1 John 3:15

The Bible says that no one who is a murderer has eternal life. And those who simply have just the slightest hatred for someone else is considered to be a murderer. And truly they are, if that hatred desires to see the other person dead.

Jesus said to the Jews in his day:

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." - John 8:44

Here we see who the first murderer in history was. It is the Devil.

And that is very typical of a false accuser to do. Accuse an innocent man of the very crime that he himself, that is, the accuser, is guilty of.

So in the like manner, we see that those who are guilty of hatred towards their fellow man, and who support the killing of the innocent, are actually accusing an innocent God of the very crimes that they themselves commit.

But what about all those stories of God 'killing' children, and ordering them to be killed in the Bible?

Isn't that murder?

Not necessarily. You see, in God's universe, there is no such thing as death for innocent people. There is only life.

Among those who are innocent are children. Any time that God took the life of a child, he simply took that child back to the heaven from whence that child came.

The Bible says that God "...visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that HATE ME." - Exodus chapter 20.

So if God ever takes the life of a child, it is without question, in nearly 90% of all the cases, due to someone's hatred towards God.

Why should God allow someone to enjoy the gift of a child if they do not deserve it?

And can't God do with his own children whatever he wants to anyway? Who is man that he can stop God?

Who is man to judge God?

God said to Job, "Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? Wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?" - Job 40:8

Who are you to say that God cannot take back a child he has given to you?

If God took the firstborn of Pharoah in Egypt, and if Pharoah couldn't stop God, how much less can you stop God from taking your firstborn child?

And when God so-called 'kills' a child, it is not because God is some blood thirsty devil, as many haters of God imagine him to be, but rather because he is passing judgment upon someone for their sins against him.

And in every case, God takes that child back. He doesn't send the child to hell.

Jesus said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein." - Mark 10:14-15

If Jesus said that of children is the kingdom of God, then that means the children are worthy of the kingdom of God because they are innocent. Which means when children die, they go to heaven.

Here is another passage in the Bible that shows us how God feels about little children. This passage comes from Matthew chapter 18, verses 1 - 5.

"1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me."

So we can clearly see from these passages of scripture that God is not about murdering innocent children, as he is accused of doing. But rather, God is all about the innocent children entering into the kingdom of heaven.

It is rather wicked and sinful men who are to blame for any loss of a child's life. There are 10 thousands of starving children in Africa who die every year, which could have had their bellies filled with food had only 1% of America's richest men had donated half of their riches for the cause of feeding them. Yet because these atheists are wicked and selfish, these children go hungry. But that's okay, God is going to take them to a better place anyway. A place that atheists despise and refuse to go to. They themselves freely admit that they do not wish to go to heaven because "worshipping God would be so boring." They have no idea how bad hell is going to be for them. If they did, they would not complain about such a place as heaven.

In any case, the bottom line is this: The Devil and humanity is to blame for the loss of innocent lives in this world. Not God. In the end, God always takes care of the innocent. Whether by life, or by death.

God is not some evil, murdering lunatic, as some suppose he is, because the Bible clearly says, "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." - 2 Peter 3:9
