Refuse Evil and Choose Good

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. For before the Child shall know to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land that you dread will be forsaken by both her kings.

(Isaiah 7:14-16) NKJV

People use this passage to support the idea that children begin life in a state of innocence, however, it’s not clear why. Before a child knows how to refuse evil and choose good they would do either with no regard for the consequence. This doesn’t make them innocent, it makes them vulnerable. That’s why a child has to be protected and shown what’s right and wrong.

The material that our bodies are made of is corrupt. If it’s not purified through faith in Jesus Christ then it’s going to hell when we die. It can’t start in a state of purity because, on this world, there isn’t one.

And should I not pity Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left—and much livestock?”

(Jonah 4:11) NKJV

Not knowing your right hand from your left hand doesn’t make you innocent. It means that you haven’t learned much of anything yet, but you can still be a evil little brat.

July 18th – The Age of Accountability

There’s no age of accountability in the Bible. Children aren’t innocent up until a certain age. Abortion condemns souls directly to hell. That’s is why we should oppose it.
