This coming election we all will have a CHOICE to make. If you call yourself a “Christian” (as Mr. Buttigieg does) then you MUST hold to the truth of the Bible not something you perceive the Bible to say to fit your agenda.
As a Christian we have a civic responsibility to observe the laws of the land Ezra 7:26 and to those appointed over us Romans 13:1-7 by paying taxes and especially to vote. This coming election cycle will be especially important for a variety of issues including the one Mr. Buttigieg now seems to be an expert on. He claims “there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently.” In other words he conveniently leaves out the Whole Counsel of God to pick and choose the parts he wants to make up his own theology. You may remember I have a term for that, I call it Burger King Theology and with God folks you can’t have it your way.
To be fair, the Bible does not use the “word” abortion. It does however make it quite clear when life begins, who is the creator of all life and the penalty for messing with God’s creation. We need to pray for those that do.

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg suggested Friday that unborn babies can be aborted up until they draw their first breath, saying parts of the Bible mention “how life begins with breath.”
The South Bend, Indiana, mayor spoke with “The Breakfast Club” on Friday morning about his comprehensive Douglass Plan, his thoughts on whether America is ready for a gay president, and whether black voters should vote for him.
Buttigieg discussed how the Bible talks about life beginning with breath, and suggested this would be one way to determine when life began in relation to abortion debates.
He said Republicans hold everyone in line with doctrine about abortion.
” … which is obviously a tough issue for a lot of people to think through morally,” Buttigieg said. “Then again, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently.”
