February 2014 – The Church of Abortion
I recently hosted what was supposed to be a group of churches coming together for “Sanctity of Life Sunday” service on a Sunday night. I agreed to both preach at and host the service at Christian Life Fellowship of which I am the Senior Pastor. I instructed my congregation to prepare food for what I had expected would be a large group of visitors from other churches for this important event. As usual, my people responded and prepared to welcome the other pro-life Christians with biblical hospitality. I was promised by two area pastors that they would bring people to this event, and the local Pregnancy Resource Center informed all the area Churches as well.
The Sunday came and we anticipated what we hoped would be the start of the area churches finally joining us with commitment in the fight. I prepared the message, the worship leader prepared the band, the members prepared the food, and we were ready! As people began to arrive I quickly realized what I had feared but had not wanted to believe; almost all of those who attended the service were my people. There were only seven people in attendance that were members from the other two churches that promised me they would make this a priority. Yes, only seven. I must say that I was angry. In fact I was very angry. My anger was of a righteous indignation concerning the apathy of the churches that go about their merry business while millions of babies are murdered. I know these two pastors love Jesus and are themselves true pro-life men, but something is wrong with this picture.
I discovered that over half of the churches in the area are “pro-choice” in their stance on the issue. I find this to be the most disgusting unbelievably sickening discovery I could make concerning the so called American Church. The idea that the words Church, Bible, Christian and pro baby murder can be in the same mouth is repulsive. They are the “Church of Abortion.” No matter what they call themselves, they are not Christian. Baby murder and Christianity are not compatible. I also discovered that of the churches that say they are pro-life when asked, most want nothing to do with taking a public stand for life and against the slaughter of the innocent. I find this appalling to say the least. As a Pastor who has been serving in my church for 18 years, I have never been personally invited to Sanctity of life service at any church. I can assure you that I would make sure I would be there, or that I would be represented if there was a good reason why I could not attend.
The fact of the matter is this; ABORTION WILL END WHEN THE CHURCH WANTS IT TO. The Church in America is anemic, wimpy, unengaged in culture, and barely has the influence of a tiny ant. I would say that the pro death “churches” along with the complacent so called pro-life churches combined could be referred to as “The Church of Abortion.”
I know many will say I am being harsh but let me make my point in scripture:
James 2:14-20” What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
Here we see the word of God challenges the notion that the walk of faith is simply a personal belief that does not necessitate an action by those who claim that they have Christ as their Savior
If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
This is a very practical application of what faith means concerning its motivation to action. It is one thing to notice something but it is quite another to do something about it that costs you something.
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
Here we see that there is no life in our faith if it does not cause us to act. What effect does our faith have if we do nothing? The answer is that faith without action is like a dead person with ability to influence anyone, and anything.
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”
Here a man who does nothing is called vain. To be vain is to be one who is not trusted to make an eternal difference. Some have attempted to ease their own conscience by interpreting this passage as being about spiritual things rather that natural actions but the context could not be clearer! The context is about one’s natural needs, and in principle, what more need can a fellow human being have than to have their right to life protected?
Do not fool yourself. You are either pro-life or you are part of the Church of Abortion! Why would I use such terms? Recently Nancy Pelosi said “abortion is sacred.” There is no doubt that the feminist movement sees abortion as the center of their twisted religion of feminist self- worship. If you are in a church that is so called “pro-choice”…GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!! If your pastor calls himself pro-life but refuses to take a stand…GET OUT!!!!!!!
I want to make something clear. We can’t go to every event, we can’t do everything, I am not saying if you miss one event that you don’t care, but we must take a stand against this national horrible generational genocide. To have a Sanctity of Life Service in which two churches promise to make it a priority and have such laziness is pathetic. The murder of 57 million people is not just any cause to fight against. It is the cause to fight against! If Churches who call themselves Christian cannot unite on this one thing, what can we unite on? I call upon every pastor, and every Christian to do something to end this wholesale slaughter of innocent life! Volunteer at your local right to life ministries. Vote pro-life, give financially, and speak out! DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!
Don’t be part of the “Church of Abortion,” be a Christian and let your faith turn to action.
