Church, Will We Look Back On Abortion In Horror?



O that the Bride of Christ would not look back on abortion only to express sorrow, but instead will see her fingerprints covering the cessation of this massacre.

Earlier this week the depravity of man was in the spotlight. In a despairing legislative defeat, morality was shown the door and the most vulnerable of victims were once again robbed of due advocacy.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would have outlawed elective abortions of fetus' past 20 weeks gestation. Exemptions to the ban include circumstances of rape, incest, and severe risk to the mother's health.

Summary of the vote

A vote didn't even happen. The scheduled vote was delayed by a democrat-ran filibuster, and the 60 votes necessary to terminate a filibuster fell short at 51.

This is our Senate, the upper chamber of our Congress historically recognized as the elite, aristocratic referees of American representation. Yet most of them would rather not protect innocent life– even when over 2/3 of Americans being represented oppose abortion after 20 weeks.

"This happened? Why didn't someone stop it!?"

I remember learning about the Holocaust as a child and thinking, "this happened? Why didn't someone stop it!?" I remember talking to a black friend on the playground and declaring to him that I'd beat up anyone who tried to treat him the way blacks were treated years ago.

It's amazing how the heart of a child carries a more poignant perspective of right and wrong than adults. Perhaps this is because children aren't as acquainted with fear, and thus courage prevails in contrast to immorality.

A plea to the Church

We need to talk more about abortion. Years from now when abortion is unanimously viewed as evil, what will we have to say? The Church has been well-established far before the jurisprudential tragedy of Roe v. Wade.

This genocide is happening on our watch. At this point 60 million image-bearers of their Creator, Father God, have succumbed to this infanticide.

Many churches today abstain from this discussion out of fear of being "divisive" with their congregations. But imagine if pastors in the early 40's or late 1800's refused to talk about anti-semitic genocide or segregation.

"Well...I don't agree with segregation or genocide...but inserting politics with my sermons may cause division among my congregation, so I won't talk about it."

Pastors, you MUST have these challenging conversations with your flocks.

This conversation must be circulating throughout our halls. We must inform our congregants in a way that breaches the walls of apathy and results in action.

These are the widows and orphans of our time. These are the ones we are enthralled to show mercy to and to pursue justice for. These are the most vulnerable among us.

O that the Bride of Christ would not look back on abortion only to express sorrow, but instead will see her fingerprints covering the cessation of this massacre.

For the Gospel,

JWR


Hi, my name is John and I love coffee. As I write this I’m sitting in a local roastery sipping a “mudslide” espresso with cream and two and a half sugars. There are few things in life that I feel merit precise orchestration with no room for error, coffee is one of them.

My life belongs to Jesus. I am his son and He is my King. His work in my life is reason enough for my faith to be made complete. He lived to die for me so that I may be credited righteous thus I will live for Him. I believe one area that has been greatly ignored by Christians is culture and politics. We must be active in representing our faith in these communities, but not in a relativistic or compromising way. Full bio
