(Christian Post) Some progressive Christians have recently endorsed a controversial interpretation of a biblically-backed idea that involves abortion and the actual moment that life begins.

The liberal Christian blog The Christian Left recently claimed that the Bible did not forbid abortion and that God even stated when life actually began. Their claims, though, are brewing a growing controversy with the larger Christian community, who believes the progressive religious group is twisting passages of the Bible to support abortion.

The first passage that is used in this manner is taken from Genesis 2:7 – God “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and it was then that the man became a living being.”
