Are you shocked? I hope not. I actually hope that every Christian can say the same. If you haven't been there, yet, I pray that 2017 will be your year. I invite you to join me during 40 Days for Life. You see, I believe that through prayer, God will make a difference in our nation one soul at a time as He brings us (you and me) to repentance.
It is easy for us as believers to point the finger at those outside the church who mock God. But the most subtle mockery of God, and the most dangerous comes from those of us sitting in church. We are guilty of mockery when we behave with an outward show of spirituality or godliness without an inward engagement or change of heart. - What does it mean that God is not mocked?
I'm appalled at the number of "Christians" who show up at the abortion clinics boldly excusing and murderously erasing the evidence of their sin in the name of grace. They boldly proclaim that God will forgive them for entering Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills to mask their hypocrisy. According to Matt Walsh, this duplicity is rampant.
Allura Lightfoot shares an urgent wake-up call after a pro-choice nurse comments on her page. Here is her response which I couldn't say any better:
Another PRO-DEATH "nurse" commented on my page:
"I'm proud to be educated, and I'm proud to be pro-choice. The author of the quote (which I posted on Sat) is right. We are not just in hospitals, but we are also the ones taking your vital signs in doctor's offices, helping those in home-care, taking care of your loved ones in long-term care, and I've never met an OBGYN office nurse that's NOT pro-choice. Think about this the next time you seek medical care. WE ARE EVERYWHERE."-Chelsea Exists
This proud admission from NURSES who think it's okay for tiny babies to be ripped in pieces and poisoned in the womb should cause Christians to step up their game. The Church cannot be silent any longer!
Babies.are.being.murdered.every.day in our nation LEGALLY, and the healthcare professionals we have trusted with the lives of our children, ourselves, & our parents have NO PROBLEM with their slaughter!
Christians MUST go to high schools and college campuses, busy highways and town squares, to show the tiny victims of so-called #prochoice! We must educate the young people growing up in a wicked, self-centered society which says "my happiness and comfort and convenience trump your right to life", and we must present the Gospel as their, and our, only hope!
If you think that living in a nation that's pro-choice doesn't apply to you, I exhort you to #repentwithme of our apathy. THIS is our national holocaust.
"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me." – Martin Niemoller
"Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those stumbling to the slaughter." Proverbs 24:11
In the days of the Holocaust, the church learned to "Sing a Little Louder." Today, we pretend that if we can't hear the silent scream of the unborn, it simply isn't happening.
I respectfully invite my Pastors, Rev. Douglas Bankson of Victory Church in Apopka and Rev. R. H. Hardy of Magnolia Baptist to encourage our churches to fast and pray during 40 Days for Life. (If anyone is willing to join me on the sidewalk during the following campaign or at any other time, please let me know.)
If you've read this far, then I thank you for your prayerful consideration of my plea. I believe that you realize that it's time to take a stand. In the best sense of the word, we can take a knee (not like cowardly football players who stand for nothing and fall for anything) to plead for mercy and sanity to return to our nation as we acknowledge our personal sin and repent.
Please pray with me for revival in America and around the world. The days are urgent: Jesus is coming, soon. Not knowing the date is healthy because it requires us to live holy lives every day so that He will not be ashamed of us when He comes. We already know that life begins at conception, scientifically. If we live long enough, every one of us will be called "inconvenient" by someone. Inconvenience should never be a justification for murder. Here are some other opportunities to get involved in defending life from conception to natural death:
