*** After I initially posted this blog the news erupted with a story of a terrorist attack in London. I wanted to edit this to attest that I am in no way downplaying the suffering of the people who lost their lives nor the families that have been devastated. Their blood is also a tragedy that will be stamped upon this date. That being said, I have not altered my post and it stands as written. ***
June 3rd 2017.
It may not be a date that will ring with significance in the history of The United States of America. There wasn’t a war declared, no news-making peace treaty was signed, President Trump did not balance the budget nor did he arrest the Supreme Court tyrants for their blatant judicial overstep.
However, June 3rd 2017 will live in infamy for the many families who came to 419 Welshwood in Nashville, TN to shed the blood of their children. Many mothers and fathers came to this building today and made this declarative statement:
“I will trust in ME and not the LORD!”
It’s not as if these folks do not know the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. That was made sure by the men who stood out there this day and proclaimed the Gospel boldly and unabashedly for all to hear.
It is not as if these men and women did not know that the baby they were each carrying WAS IN FACT not only human, but a specific blessing from God. Precious, unique and loved by the King of the Universe.
It is not as if these people were unaware of the depths of their sin and the wrath of God they are under. They were told.
It is not as if these people were shamed and whipped by hatemongering bible abusers, not at all. Each was firmly contended for and each was told of not only God’s hatred of sin and the shedding of innocent blood, but also of the great price Jesus Christ has paid to redeem us. They were all told of the mercy and grace that is available for those who will believe.
The truth is that each and every person who killed their babies on June 3rd 2017 at 419 Welshwood did so in full knowledge of not only their actions, but also the eternal repercussions.
Even more disheartening is that 419 Welshwood is not the only place this happened. This happened 3600 times today all across our nation. Children were systematically destroyed via surgical and/or medical murder.
So June 3rd 2017 is a day that will live in infamy yes, but so is tomorrow and the day after will be as well. Unless we as the Church of the Living God RISE UP, this will continue.
Face the facts, Christian, preborn children died today on your watch.
It is high time that all Christians everywhere band together as one and declare to this wicked nation: NOT ON MY WATCH!!!
Francis Schaffer famously said that all abortion clinics should have a sign over the door that reads “Open by permission of the Church.”
I would like to suggest that it is time for the Bride of Christ to tell this world “PERMISSION TO MURDER HAS BEEN REVOKED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!!”
It is not enough to hold a pro-life opinion. It is not enough to just agree with the tenants of abolitionism without putting those beliefs into action. It is not enough to post about things on Facebook or to wear bold T-Shirts.
Babies are not dying on the internet. They are dying in real life.
Parents who are denying the Gospel in real life are going to burn in very real Hellfire.
I AM NOT saying that everyone needs to be at an abortion mill every chance they get. I am saying that everyone has a place that they can, in a very real way, get out and actively oppose this wickedness and shine the light of the Gospel in dark places.
Put your hands to the plow people!!
“But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
~ Luke 9:62
