In 1970, in the midst of the United States' abortion debate (it was legalised in 1973), the editors of the journal California Medicine (the official journal of the California Medical Association), noticed 'a curious avoidance of the scientific fact, which everyone really knows, that human life begins at conception and is continuous whether intra or extra uterine until death'.
Therefore, to kill an unborn infant is to murder a human being.
ScoMo's world view is not driven by biblical Christianity's, 'We must obey God rather than human beings'. When he reneges on what the Bible says about the destiny of all evil doers, including homosexuals, he has made a trade off to weaken what the Bible states.
To affirm that he is not running for Pope and serves a God of love avoids fuller explanation of who God is: all-powerful, one who knows all things, has a nature of wrath as well as love. He offers salvation to all who believe; we can know him truly; and he is eternal.
Could you imagine ScoMo taking a stand on the 7.30 program like this? 'As a Christian who believes in the inspiration of the Bible, I endorse the content of Israel Folau's Instagram post? As a Christian PM, everything I say and do will be under the scrutiny of the Bible'.
I appreciate that that kind of comment would lose some votes at the next election – while gaining others – and could be used by the opposition to denigrate his beliefs in a multicultural Australia. Nevertheless, the Australian Constitution has its foundation in the five states that joined together, 'humbly relying on the blessing of Almighty God'.
All Christians are faced with the ScoMo challenge: 'Everything you say and everything you do should be done for Jesus your Lord'. Imagine the PM saying it like that to Leigh Sales!
Perhaps Christians are loath to criticise Morrison because we have a Christian PM – at last. Are they not wanting to stir the pot about arguable points and give opportunities for opponents of the Gospel who could say, 'See, even his Christian supporters are deserting him'.
In my view, the public life of politics has weakened ScoMo's overt Christianity.
ScoMo what will it be? Spiritual correctness or political correctness? Your future will depend on it.
