THE FAILURE OF ABORTION, PART 5 – Failure of Forgiveness

The Failure of Abortion is our failure as a person, as a Church, as a Family, as a Nation. Abortion is personal but exponential in the realm of human nature and accepted doctrine. We have grieved, protested, prayed, complained in the face of CHOICE…but have we forgiven? Consider this:

  • ‘Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.’ (Psalm 32:1)
  • ‘But there is forgiveness with You, that You may be feared.’ (Psalm 130:4)
  • ‘To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him.’ (Daniel 9:9)
  •  ‘And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.’ (Mark 11:25)

Probably the best Scripture reference about the ultimate act of forgiveness (besides the ones noted above) is straight from the mouth of Jesus Christ while He was nailed to the Cross was “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do,” (Luke 23:34).

An open heart forgives, a closed mind is still trying to gather suspects. But trying to open the heart is like trying to pry open a sealed tomb.

‘Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.’ (Matthew 18:21-22)

As I was testifying for the Heartbeat Bill, the chamber was overflowing with pro-abortion women and men that want to keep abortion not just legal but accessible to even minor children. While sitting there, it occurred to me that these people are just as guilty as the abortionist; they smile and nod in agreement. They vote for pro-abortion candidates and legislation. Yes, they are responsible for abortion as much as the post-abortive mom who carries her shame, grief and guilt while these pro-aborts have the unadulterated nerve to wear ‘lady parts’ costumes dancing in blasphemous nose-thumbing ridicule.

Then, in regard to what is of the law of the land (all law, not just abortion), Jesus said to “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s (Matthew 21:22)” – essentially, we have to fight the government’s abortion law with the law and fight the Church’s ineptness of proper doctrine WITH proper doctrine, which is God’s. Jesus saw that there is and will always be a tug-of-war with Christians and Government and made this as simple as possible: Give back to Caesar AS A CHRISTIAN.

And then there’s the FAMILY….sigh. They are the worst offenders and need the most forgiveness, although they don’t think they do. Post-abortive women and men have been let down by their own families. Families always think they know better for you when in reality they are protecting themselves from your pregnancy. Family is who you are supposed to trust in turbulent times but that is not always the case, particularly in regard to unplanned out-of-wedlock pregnancies. But here we are, post-abortive, in a family that has an unforgiving heart…and God EXPECTS us to forgive them as He forgives us: ‘For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more” (Hebrews 8:12).

Failure in Forgiveness is what keeps us bound down and tight in our past. Forgiveness is easy and free. We sinned, we repent, we are forgiven. Can’t get much simpler than that BUT YOU HAVE TO ASK TO RECEIVE.  Then…you look for your accusers, just as the woman caught in adultery (John 8:4-11) and see that the accusers are the accused leaving one by one, in need of forgiveness themselves, then go and SIN NO MORE.

  1. I sat in the backroom with the pro-aborts and listenened to them giggle and play with their computers and smart phones, while wearing pink shirts emboldened with “War on Women” and “Women’s Health.”

    As Rachelle gave her testimony, I felt so much pain in her voice, that I started to involuntarily cry and cry hard.
    One of the pro-life pastors handed his cloth hankie. Yes, there is a war on women…

  2. Exactly. I saw minor girls with PP shirts on, as if they are ‘adult’ enough to make that kind of decision. I truly thought that what NARAL & PP did that day would go under the title of “contributing to the delinquency of a minor”. Shame on their parents (assuming they knew) and shame on NARAL & PP.

  3. As these women were giggling and joking during Rachelle’s testimony, I knelt my head and prayed for each and everyone of them, that they may understand the truth. I thought about how the majority of them are likely post-abortive, and prayed that they may find healing, which will never come from the likes of Planned Parenthood or the abortion industry, only from God.

  4. Their moms and dads are too busy and exhausted (and out of sight and mind) trying to raise major money for their kids’ hefty tuitions, like guinea pigs on a wheel, likely NEVER knowing until it’s too late, how their children were were being indoctrinated by BIG ABORTION behind their backs. I discussed PP’s latest stunt at U of C a couple of weeks ago with my own mother just yesterday. She has 2 sons and 2 daughters and a child in heaven due to miscarriage, I asked: ” Mom, how would you feel if one of your daughters did this?” She was mortified. Just like former abortion clinic owner Carole Everett from Texas explained how the abortion industry works at taking away the young girl’s natural modesty…
    Once that modesty is gone, BIG ABORTION can work with them better…

    Also, I understand why Joe came unglued… As I became unglued in the overflow room.
