Dear Reader. You wouldn't think that there would have to be a debate about the sanctity of life in the Christian church right? And yet, here we are on July 9, 2022 watching various church pastors make astonishing declarations about their views on life and abortion. It took the Supreme courts overturning of Roe to FINALLY bring various distinguished voices to the forefront.
And about time too. Some issues are SUPPOSED to be polarizing! If you can't tell the difference between the church and modern culture on life issues then, something is wrong, very wrong.
After all, the day is late and there is little time left before our Lord and Savior cracks the sky and returns as He promised. That said, there may be some readers who still have not picked a side in this discussion thinking that the nuances are difficult to suss out. Maybe a few of our readers were surprised when your Pastor finally said the word "abortion" and then explained where your church has chosen to stand on this issue. But, I'll bet that some of you will be shocked by what you will hear coming out of the mouths of some very popular Pastors as they innoculate entire congregations with their personal beliefs.
This won't be a long post. I will let the various YouTube videos speak for themselves. But just in case you were wondering, when all is said and done, each one of us WILL have to give an account as to where we stood on the issue of life as our forefathers did about abolishing slavery and ensuring civil rights. There will be no offering up your Pastors opinions as your own. Do the biblical work, search your heart, don't bow down to politics and then, take a stand.
Be blessed this Sunday as you choose a side and STAND! Of course, we pray you will stand as Jesus stood; for the children!
Luke 18:16 NLT — Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.
