I believe that the Bible teaches that all human beings will be saved. We do not save ourselves. God saves us and our death does not take away God's power to save us. I was trying to point out the illogic of being pro-life in regard to the unborn child and yet worship a God whom one believes will commit millions of human beings to an eternal death in hell. God will not allow people to abort themselves in this life through their bad choices regarding salvation. God will make sure that all people are born again in the Spirit. He will not abort any human being due to their lack of faith in this life. Those who believe that God will not send babies to hell but will send adults to hell should praise the women who have aborted millions of human beings. Their salvation is guaranteed. Abortion is mankind's greatest salvation program, according to the Christian theology of hell. God is way more pro-life than any of us human beings could ever be. Death is God's greatest enemy and will be the last enemy that He will destroy. Death is not destroyed if millions of human beings are eternally dead in hell. Death will not have the last word. Our deaths at the end of this life does not take away God's power to save life. God will not abort anyone but will bring all of us into a new life of the Spirit. Jesus did speak of the destruction of the wicked. But this applies to all of us. The old man in all of us must be destroyed as we are born again into the life of the Spirit. I pray that all Christians will believe in a God who is truly pro-life.

I too think that Dr. Adams arguments on behalf of life are great. However, Christian salvation theology known as soteriology presents a problem. If a Christian woman holds to the free will understanding of salvation rather than the Calvinist version, she in effect believes that, if she aborts the child in her womb, the child will go directly to heaven. However if the child is not aborted and grows to adulthood, the non-aborted individual is in danger of spending an eternity in hell should he or she reject Jesus as his or her Savior. So, to insure the salvation of the child in her womb, the rape victim would not go too wrong in aborting the child and thus ensuring his salvation. Only the two theologies of Calvinistic predestination or universal reconciliation make it worthwhile to have the baby. There is one other problem. New born children are not blank sheets (tabula rasa). The child of a rapist may be born with some of the same evil proclivities as its father. This is why adoption can be a bit of Russian roulette. But in any case, while the child itself may actually benefit from an abortion which could be his ticket to heaven, the mother would be destroying an innocent life, an action that God would look upon as murder. A Mrs Yates in Texas murdered her children, who had not yet reached the age of accountability, in order to ensure their salvation. She was logically applying free will theology in which human beings are saved or damned based on their free will decision to believe or disbelieve in Jesus unless they die when they are too young to make such a decision. In such a case they get a free pass to heaven.

Women in Combat

Allowing women in combat units is not about allowing women to shoot at the enemy or get shot at. It's about getting more women in the officer corps. All an ambitious woman wants is to dip her big toe into a combat unit so as to make herself eligible for filling officer vacancies in combat units. She will avoid actual combat but instead will be ordering enlisted men and some low rank male officers into combat. She will then have a shot at becoming a general in the Army or Marine Corps.The real danger is an American army with female officers on one side with male enlisted on the other. Men experience enough female scolding from their mothers and teachers without having to face the same experience in the Army, especially in combat units.
