You quoted him speaking about the soul, then said he was speaking of life. That was a misrepresentation, regardless of what you posted later. The quote at hand was speaking of the soul of a child, not the actual life. He said directly that a baby is alive before birth, simply not a living soul.

Say what you might, you still misrepresented him, as is easy to see by anyone who pays attention.

aussiemama,

But until my husband and I have studied the Scriptures for ourselves on this issue,

You do not have to study very much to know that the valley of dry bones is all about restoration of the nation of Israel. This is some very important scribture about the restoration of the nation of Israel. You can see this all through Jer. and Ez. This has nothing to do with the birth of any man but the rebirth of a nation. That being said a study of the restoration of the nation of Israel is a very important issue. Ruckman has a very good book on the topic by the way. I'd even recommend you get it. Israel A Deadly Piece of Dirt.

Gen. 2:7 also is not a very big stud when you know that Adam was never born.

I'm really curious about why this issue bugs you so much.
maybe it's just the 50,000,000 death by abortion. maybe that's not a big issue with you, but it is for me. This is not a simple issue.

So the fact that Ruckman believes the way he does, and believes abortion is sin at the same time, means he's responsible for all the abortions?

Maybe you should blame me for them instead. When I was a homeless teenager I helped girls get things that could cause abortions. Of course I don't do that anymore, but you might as well at least blame someone who had something to do with it.

Again, I haven't seen anyone say abortion is okay, regardless of this specific point.

But I understand your position completely.

I think my own posts here have clearly shown I base my belief that unborn children are living and with spirits is substantiated by Scripture and is not an emotionally-justified opinion.

However, having recently dealt with a miscarriage, it certainly bothers me that people will come up with strange theories to justify the idea that the son or daughter I lost was not really alive -- the child I saw with my own two eyes. But I try not to take it personally.

Ask any woman that has had a miscarriage and you'll find out that it's a sensitive issue anyway. But miscarriage is one of the reasons why I certainly want to always believe that a baby is a life at conception. I just don't want emotions to cloud my judgment though. But you don't have to worry, this isn't an issue I'm going to tackle right now which means that as it stands, I believe that life begins at conception.

I have also heard something weird about that it's not a life till the tenth day coz that's when it gets blood or something. That sounds weird too.

Ruckman is, in my judgment, entirely wrong on the issue of when life begins. And I wish he hadn't made the snarky reference to "anti-abortionists." But I still am not convinced that he explicitly approves of abortion.

When I was at PBI, in a course entitled "The Preacher and His Problems," Ruckman discussed, graphically, all of the various methods of birth control - - - which he believes is okay, as I do. (The "abortion pill" hadn't been invented yet, so he didn't mention it.) In the discussion, he did not list or suggest abortion as a birth control method.

But the pro-abortion people do. They think it's just as legitimate as a condom or a diaphragm.

So, I wouldn't put Ruckman in the "pro-abortion" camp; that would be going too far. But he is wrong about when life begins.

I thank you again for providing the reference, which helps clarify my thinking.

I will continue to praise God for all the truth that Ruckman does teach! And I will repeat, as I do so often, that "all flesh is grass."

Peter Ruckman does not teach abortion is murder, but he does NOT teach that it is not murder. Antics with semantics, doublespeak. He then goes on to justify abortion for rape and not adding to the Catholic Church membership.

Psalms 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.


"I don't teach that abortion is murder, like the brethren do"

"You don't want to get hung up on those things. Some of the brethren get so hung up on this thing, 'abortion is murder, abortion is murder', they show you pictures. Well they're trying to prove, they're trying to prove the thing looks like a person that is a person. That's what Darwin taught. You gotta watch that business. You can take an embryo of an animal and prove it looks like an embryo of a person. That doesn't make it a person. You gotta watch that business. You go around start prove that thing is a person before that thing is born, then you got that matter of salvation. And the first thing you know you'll be up there at the Catholic hospital dumpin' water on them so they don't go to limbo. You gotta watch that kind of stuff. Now I'll grant you the child is an organism, I'll grant you that. But they're a lot of organisms. I'll grant you the child may be alive in the sense of animal life, I'll grant you that. I'll grant you it's an embryo, I'll grant you that. But if you talking about a living soul see, I read my bible there's no living soul till the Lord breathed in his nostrils the breath of life."

"Now if you ever start teaching the other, and maybe some of you fellows subscribe that way, you gonna have some real problems. When all those Indians and Hindus came into Bangladesh and Pakistan and raped about 2000 women and left them with about 800 illegitimate children, the good Catholic nuns, in order to increase the membership to the local church, decided it'd be a terrible sin to have any abortion. So the will of God for 800 women who were abused against their will to bear children for the Roman Catholic Church. I don't believe it!"

I think we've burn this ground quite enough. If Ruckman wants to come to the forum and talk about his position, he can. He's not here, so let's quit talking about what he thinks and stick to Scripture and Scripture alone -- the "Ruckman abortion threads" are closed.
