As a believer in God, and follower of Jesus, I have always found the rationale for adoption given by practicing Christians both amusing and hypocritical. I could never understand how God would "want" man to separate mother and child, simply because a society ruled by misogynists say an unwed pregnancy is unlawful. After all, when Mary found herself pregnant without a husband, at no point was she "counseled" by adoption facilitators and told it was in the best interest for the unborn child to be relinquished, and given to council-approved strangers, while she was to act as if the pregnancy never took place. Instead, Mary, the only mother of Jesus, was told to have faith; she was told support would be provided, through the assistance of a benefactor. That benefactor would be a man named Joseph, a man who would provide for Mary and her child, for 13 years. It should be noted, at no point during Jesus's time on earth did he ever claim Joseph was his father. Instead, Jesus (and Mary) recognized God as his only father. I myself found the crucifixion of Jesus to be the most revealing of all typical adoption issues owned by a child who has been abandoned by a birth-parent. According to the New Testament, it was at the lowest loneliest, most painful point in Jesus's life, he cried out loud, to his father, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
It is possible that at some moment on the cross, when Jesus became sin on our behalf, that God the Father, in a sense, turned His back upon the Son. It says in Hab. 1:13 that God is too pure to look upon evil. Therefore, it is possible that when Jesus bore our sins in His body on the cross (1 Pet. 2:24), that the Father, spiritually, turned away. At that time, the Son may have cried out.
[From: Why did Jesus cry out, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?" ]
All too easily and frequently, when many followers of a fundamental belief-system want to justifying the questionable actions they are making for the sake of others, they will use (and quote, when needed) the holy-book they read, as if that's all a person needs to do in order to explain questionable rationale and behavior. Through blind unquestioning faith, (and a collection of argument-sustaining quotes), many fundamentalists feel free and justified to change the lives of others, radically, and permanently, without giving much thought to the future natural consequences that will result, when man tries to play God, on earth. I find this misuse of the bible both arrogant and lazy.
Now I admit, I myself am guilty of my own faith-based cockiness and laziness. For decades I have been guilty of irresponsibility as it applies to decision-making in my own life. I have allowed my personal faith and relationship with God, (my Heavenly Father, as I have always seen him), to control my life, and relieve me from the burdens and challenges that go with independent thinking and responsible risk-taking that can lead me to a better life.
Back when I was torn between committing suicide and getting married (as a way to end the misery I was experiencing in my suffocating and toxic adoptive home) I chose to believe God's call for me. I saw what I wanted to see, in the form of a formal proposal of marriage. I saw what I wanted to see because I wanted an answer made FOR me. I admit, as smart and bright, and capable as people thought I was and could be, I was too ashamed to admit I was too damaged and afraid to take personal responsibility for mistakes I was making due to ill-informed decision-making.
