The Outside looking In – The Black Sheep Christian

I am a prolife activist and minister. I write and post many things regarding Life issues and post abortive women. My site and ministry, KeepLifeLegal.com, has many followers and I thank God first for it. I have counseled women and men, I have prayed for babies that might lose their lives to abortion outside of my local abortion provider. I have spoken in venues regarding Life. I study the Scriptures. I do a lot of research for my ministry. I AM BLESSED to have this ministry laid upon my heart by God.

So, what’s wrong? Someone that I love mightily posted a ‘funny’ abortion video. There is NOTHING funny about a child dying from being forcibly torn apart, one limb at a time.

I am one of very few Christians in my family, and I’m very out loud and active in my ministry…you know, the black sheep. The Scripture says:

“When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” So they were offended at Him.

“But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house. Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.”

I try to ride the wave even when the water is calm because that is what God wants. But there are times when a minister gets slapped in the face by their relatives and even their own children. One such day happened just the other day. And when it did, I went to the Scriptures…Mathew 13:54-58. Even Jesus Christ himself could not be heard by his own people. And when they spoke badly and spitefully, He moved on. He had work to do.

In the Epistles, Paul spoke of not wasting time on those that won’t hear. There isn’t time to argue, there isn’t time to debate. Christians that have a message by God to give have to give it NOW, in spite of the hurdles placed there by the devil, even using our own family to mean us harm.

So while my own broke my heart the other day, I have many more lives that are in the balance that need what God has given me to preach and teach. No time to argue, no time to debate.
