Jesus Teaches Us Always To Seek The Truth
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall
make you free." ( John 8:32 KJV)
We may have strong feelings and beliefs about a subject such as abortion, but some of our feelings and beliefs might be false. Jesus teaches us to seek the truth, no matter where it leads.
The Bible is the inspired written Word of God, sufficient to guide all human action, for all people, at all times. Although its Source is infallible, the Bible itself is not perfectly infallible because fallible humans have introduced human error into it. Also, the Bible cannot always be understood literally, because it contains figures of speech which are never intended to be taken literally. Nevertheless, the Bible is the highest written authority in all matters which it discusses. And if it is properly understood and properly applied, it is a sufficient moral guide for all human action.
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and
is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:
unto all good works."
(2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV)

people shall say, Amen.
Psalm 106:38 (KJV)
And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their
daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land
was polluted with blood.
Proverbs 6:17 (KJV)
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
