I get a lot of amusing hits to Theosebes from various search strings. Today I got one of the saddest I've ever had, this from a search from someone in Singapore: "past abortion cannot be baptised?" via Google. I don't know if the searcher has in mind infant baptism or baptism for the formerly expectant mother, but regardless it opens a window of insight into the baggage that accompanies what is popularly protrayed as just another visit to the doctor. The innocent victim is just that, innocent and sinless, without the need for the forgiveness effected at baptism. The troubled mother can seek the same forgiveness that the rest of us sinners need through the blood of Christ. (Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, Romans 6:3-7)
