It Really Does Take a Village

Posted by

crossesOn Sunday, October 4, Life Chains will again occupy U.S. and Canadian sidewalks to pray and witness on behalf of voiceless fellow-citizens who are presently imperiled by surgical mutilation and abortive birth controls.

We assemble each year for this prayerful and public testimony because innocent children continue to die. The earth’s gravest injustice pursues them, and they die for want of defenders.

If truth be known, well over 100 million children have perished in North America and, as pro-life servant Flip Benham observed, “it takes a village” duly unified to ravage innocent humanity when vile, unjust killing is deemed “legal.”

Law enforcement must agree to protect the killer and to disenable defenders who directly interfere, however honorably, with the brutalization of defenseless, lawful citizens.

Health departments, school systems, elected officials, and civic organizations must find the killing either tolerable or praiseworthy. The adult citizenry  (about 70% of the village residents) must also do likewise.

And, woefully, the children’s last line of defense, the village church, must submit sufficiently to the “powers and principalities” of Ephesians 6 and allow unbiblical priorities to lure their duty and influence into years of détente with the spiritual forces that create and sustain such holocausts.

True to Edmund Burke, the horrendous villainy inflicted on the village children endures because the inaction of “good people” shields it.

On October 4, let us remember the videos recently produced through the Center for Medical Progress which exposed the abhorrent “face of abortion” through the deceptive and barbarous mind of Planned Parenthood.

Let us also remember our calling as Christians to expose the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11) which the church has been so complicit in shielding.

Legal abortion will cease when the Church of Jesus Christ hates abortion enough to protect God’s future worshippers and end the carnage.

On National Life Chain Sunday, let us implore God to anchor within us a deep hatred for abortion and to grow within us fervent compassion for vulnerable children. Pastors who lead in that endeavor will be of enormous value to the cause of life.

Accordingly, Pastors, please lead your congregations to stand with us on October 4 at 2:00 PM at the corner of Main St. (HWY 33) and Viking Dr. (Cty. Rd. H).
