The Sin of Bloodguilt

Bloodguilt: The sin of bloodguilt is a sin that effects the individual as well as the community and nation that condones or ignores it. Bloodguilt is the shedding of the blood of an innocent person. Abortion takes the life of the most defenseless and innocent among us. 50 million children have been killed through abortion in our nation since 1973. Abraham Lincoln tied the horror of the War Between the States to the bloodguilt that came upon the nation through legalized and constitutionally protected slavery. Read Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address.

 Deut 19:13 “Show him no pity. You must purge from Israel the guilt of shedding innocent blood, so that it may go well with you.”

 Numbers 35:33-34 "'Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it. 34 Do not defile the land where you live and where I dwell, for I, the Lord, dwell among the Israelites.'"

 Psalm 106:37-38 “ They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons. 38 They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood. 39 They defiled themselves by what they did; by their deeds they prostituted themselves.”

 2 Kings 24:3-5 3Surely at the commandment of the LORD came this upon Judah, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did;  4And also for the innocent blood that he shed: for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; which the LORD would not pardon.

 Proverbs 6:16-18 16These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  17A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,  18An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

 Jeremiah 2:33-35 33Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways.  34Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.  35Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned.

 Jonah 1:13-15 13Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.  14Wherefore they cried unto the LORD, and said, We beseech thee, O LORD, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O LORD, hast done as it pleased thee.  15So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.

 Leviticus 18:24-26 24Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:  25And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.  26Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
