During a Facebook Live video with FaithWire last week, actor Stephen Baldwin shared his thoughts on people who consider themselves pro-choice concerning abortion rights but also identify as Christians. "The Bible's very clear," Baldwin said. "The Word never changes....You can't be pro-choice and call yourself a follower of Jesus Christ, doesn't go together."
"It's a fact. It's a simple common sense fact," Baldwin continued. "So anybody who hears me say that and goes, 'Well, hey I'm ... this type of Christian or this denomination and in our church ... it's acceptable.' I'm just going to say, 'Well, whatever they're teaching you according to God's Word that has allowed you to believe that is incorrect.' It's very simple."
Baldwin, 51, also spoke of the recent late-term abortion ban, which would have banned abortions after 20 weeks because of the "scientific evidence" that shows a fetus at 20 weeks feels pain butfailed to pass after a Senate vote in January: "In the womb, a child at 20 weeks is alive and developed enough to feel pain, and three weeks later, you can dispose of that life and say that's just the way it is?"
He also stressed that it's not enough to rely on the "laws of the land" in deeming abortion to be "acceptable" and warned that God would handle those who believe so: "Well, guess what? When your attitude is that, and then everyday people say, 'Oh I can't believe in a God that would send somebody to hell' — God doesn't send anybody to hell. Ever. He gives us a choice. And when you choose the things we've been choosing, let me tell you something: He's going to be upset about it. And in those mysterious ways, He's going to respond."
