How does Hosea apply to an unrepentant world today? First, do you know who Hosea is? He’s an Old Testament prophet, sent by God to give a warning to His people. Sadly, things haven’t changed all that much. The message is all too relevant, even here in the year 2023. Almost 2,800 years later.
Four years ago, I wrote Christians and abortion: Will Christians abandon God over abortion? The impetus for it was Disney, the state of Georgia, and proposed abortion legislation. Well, things have changed dramatically since then. Therefore, my new question for this update is Will abortion drive people away from Christianity?
Do Christian Nationalists know what Jesus taught? They probably do. At least they can probably pull out some words here and there to support their beliefs. Maybe the real question is, do Christian nationalists understand what Jesus taught? In that case, I have to say the answer is a resounding “No!”
My body my choice! It feels like it’s being used for lots of things these days. Not getting vaccinated. And by extension, not vaccinating kids. Getting an abortion. And by extension, in a similar manner, not having kids. Of course, there are arguments made on both sides of both issues. We’ll look at both. However, I want to add another dimension. Christianity. Why? Because it makes things much more clear. And, by extension, much more volatile.
