Bible Study: Inaction of the ‘New’ Prolife Movement

We are continuing our Bible Study regarding Biblical prolife ministry and rescues. Click here to read the previous post. And so that there is no mistake of who we are and what we do, please read part of our Mission Statement:

KeepLifeLegal is a part of the Prolife Movement basing our missions in prolife ministry using biblical standards, not denominational or religious man-made dogma. We base this ministry on the Word of God only, through correct discernment of Scripture. We are ordained ministers/preachers/pastors; we are determined to show how public outreach and rescuing is biblical, a work of action and love. As the Book of Acts has proven and continues to demonstrate, it is a book and work without end, until the Gospel has been preached to all. 

2014-08-28-17-06-48.jpgThe Bible says: Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us,” [1Cor 5:5-7]. 

The ‘new’ prolife movement is prideful and religious, neither of which is biblical or sanctified. Leaders of these cult-like prolife groups are putting their ill-conceived schemes in front of biblical standards, those that Jesus taught, the Apostles continued with, even to this day. While the arrogance of a few has tarnished the prolife message, it is those called by God to do this Ministry which will promote LIFE and love.

God is not impressed with this ‘new’ prolife movement. The biggest mistake of the NPLM is not having the mind of Christ: But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them,because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For ‘who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him’? But we have the mind of Christ,” [1Cor 2:14-16].

To understand 1Cor 2:14-16 better, realize that the city of Corinth in that day was like the Las Vegas of today; idolatrous, pagan, carnal, and had temples with ‘consecrated’ prostitutes. The Apostle Paul planted a church squarely in the middle of that mire knowing it would have it’s challenges because of the city and the sin raging within it. Corinth needed the Gospel message, it needed the Mind of Christ, it needed a Savior.

After the church in Corinth was established, it was soon showing signs of the leaven leaking back in trying to confuse and pull back the new believers to their former debauched lives. The church in Corinth misunderstood the Gospel message, much like the NPLM had done with the Gospel message of prolife ministry to save the lost and dying at all costs. Prolife ministry in the beginning was Christ-centered and selfless. Today, the NPLM is dressed up as if it’s Easter Sunday, not Resurrection Day. The NPLM does not have the mind of Christ, but has many followers, board members and donors.

The NPLM has left the Gospel message, Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love,” [Rev 2:4]. And I say that wondering if they ever knew their first love. I follow the evidence, look for results. I see none within the New Prolife Movement. There is no Gospel, no Jesus, no LIFE or love.

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal,” [1Cor 13:1].

Love took our Savior to the Cross. Love put the Apostles in prison multiple times for doing the unlawful. Out of fear and doubt, love is not where the NPLM is today. Rather, they are a ‘safe place’ because that’s where fear wants YOU.

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works,” [2Cor 11:13-15].


Biblical Rescues, Law Breakers & the Prolife Movement

A Bible study regarding the Historical Prolife Rescue Movement and its foundation in Scripture.

Being Esther in the Prolife Movement:  She broke the law and broke tradition to save her people. NOTHING could prevent the coming Messiah.

This study shows the commonality of Esther being in a position of power to free her people from annihilation and people in a Prolife position of power freeing the unborn from abortion annihilation.

KEEPLIFELEGALIn other words, Esther advocated for the voiceless and hopeless as an activist. She saw a need and acted upon it. She knew this was against the law, and that she could lose her own life trying to save others.

Prolife leaders sometimes use their position to combat the evil of abortion while other prolife leaders gravitate from the inherent Word of God to make their position one that is motivated by pride and uses principles that are unbiblical.

Esther understood LIFE is a fundamental truth, not a concept thought up by man. This truth is from the mouth and heart of God: You shall not murder,” Exodus 20:13, NKJV. The Prolife Movement started out doing a great thing but splintered into groups for power rather than sharing the Gospel and saving babies.

Esther saved her own life by first saving her people. Isn’t that really how prolife ministry works?

King Ahasuerus had particular rules and laws to follow, even Esther had to follow them. What is key in the story of Esther is that she did what was lawful to do the unlawful. In other words, Esther had to step out of bounds and take a chance to save the Jews.

“Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!” [Es 4:16]

Today, we have Roe v Wade. We have laws. Unjust they are, but laws just the same. No one, not one person in any power position can totally eradicate abortion law yet. Roe has seen to that. That being said, we have to play by the rules of the game that Roe set up. Little by little, laws are getting better, some babies are spared, some moms have become moms because of diligent work through elected officials, judges.

During this time in modern history, there is legal abortion. Millions of lives lost to the Haman of our time, the Abortion Cartel and the Abortion Party: “If it pleases the king, let a decree be written that they be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work, to bring it into the king’s treasuries,” [Es 3:9].

Esther rescued the Jews. She did not have the law on her side. But she did it. Esther stepped out in faith knowing it was against the law.

Being Jesus in the Prolife Movement:  Jesus came to fulfill the law, not keep it.

Today, the bulk of the Prolife Movement is slothful, compliant, engineered, but gets big donations. They rely on pride and status. They rely on passivity. They rely on your fear. But worse of all, they shame those who step out in faith to do the unthinkable: RESCUE.

Most Prolife groups fail to recognize that people in the Bible had to break the law to save lives and further the Gospel. In the Book of Esther, Esther and her people had to survive because she is part of the lineage of Jesus Christ. In the Book of Acts, the Apostles and the Church had to break the law to be able to preach the Gospel and say the name of Jesus publicly. Were they arrested? Yes. They paid their debt and continued to do whatever it took to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature,” [Mark 16:15].

The prime real estate that the Passive Prolife Leader covets is the sidewalk. That means they want no one else there to determine a plan of action, which is ironic considering they have no actual ‘action’. So many groups complain about real people sacrificing everything to save unborn life, all I could possibly surmise from this revelation is that inaction equals more followers, much like the seeker sensitive church today.

Modern day rescues may be the very last defense an innocent child has. The Bible has clearly stated that law had to be broken to further the Gospel, Christ died for it! People in communist countries break the law every single day because they have chosen Christianity over the ‘religion’ their law forces them to recognize.

Then, is the ‘defense of necessity’ a reality? Of course it is! We have to use the tools we are given, and that may mean real sacrifice to save lives. The Bible has never said ‘do this thing but you’re on your own’. Not one time. Rescuers pray, fast and pray some more before doing what is unlawful, but lawful in the eyes of God.

The hypocrisy of Prolife Leaders regarding not breaking the law is astounding. Can you imagine telling Jesus not to heal or minister on the Sabbath? That was the law of that time. The Sanhedrin even considered the INTENT to break the law, followed Jesus questioning Him:

“Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they kept silent,” Mark 1-6.

But Jesus would not be silent or obedient to them, and posed this to the Pharisees:

“And Jesus, answering, spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?” But they kept silent. And He took him and healed him, and let him go. Then He answered them, saying, “Which of you, having a donkey or an ox that has fallen into a pit, will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day?” And they could not answer Him regarding these things,” Luke 14:3-6.

Scripture has shown that breaking the law can be a ‘defense of necessity’ and love.

Then, isn’t it the objective of the Prolife Movement to tell the broken system that it is needs help? Just as the example of the donkey in the well, whether it be lawful or not, rescuing the donkey [Luke 14:3-6] is the right thing to do, the Christian thing to do. And if a donkey should be saved even if the ‘work’ broke the law, shouldn’t unborn children made in the very image of God also be rescued and protected as much as this donkey? If the Prolife Leaders today say that breaking the law impedes the years of work in the Prolife Movement, make no mistake: They certainly mean their own work, or inaction, that has shown little progress other than raising funding for their group and gaining ‘followers’.

And lastly, the conjecture is quite clear, yes Jesus said to love your neighbor. He is love. He loves us all! So when a Passive Prolifer wants to taut ‘Jesus is love’, remind them He was nailed to a cross because of His love for us….are they willing to do something as audacious? Jesus prayed and asked that ‘this cup’ be taken from him, sweat literal blood, and He knew this is the Will of the Father [Luke 22:41-44]. Rescuers do not rescue flippantly, they pray and fast, and do the Will of the Father. No, rescuers are not Jesus, be we are all called to be as Christ-like as we can throughout our lives as Christians. The unborn is our ‘neighbor’ and our charge [Luke 10:27].

Being Peter & Paul in the Prolife Movement  Arise, and GO!

Inaction never equals action. A fellow activist recently said, “If you can’t show from scripture rescue is sin, you have no authority to condemn it.” I believe I have shown that the myth of ‘love only’ is passive and without action, which is not the will of God. Not all are called to rescue, but everyone is called to pray and fast for those who will step out in faith and action.

Think of it this way: Your church may sponsor missionaries to go to other countries you are not comfortable going to. They promise to help the poor and preach the Gospel, do good works, maybe build a school or church, with love and action. I am quite sure that you did not shame them for doing this just because they aren’t doing it your way. This is what the Modern Prolife Leaders do, shame and disparage those who will get dirty in the mire of unregulated unborn baby killing to save even just one life.

Peter, Paul and the Early Church in the Book of Acts proves that we are a Church in motion, continuing in the Way, not wavering, even though we may suffer. Christ made the way, Christians are called to “Arise, and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do,” [Acts 9:6].

The Early Church in other cities needed help,Come over to Macedonia and help us,” [Acts 16:9]. Isn’t this what the sidewalk is always crying out for, making a Macedonian call to other believers who will help with the poor in spirit and those led to the slaughter [Prov 24:11]? The vision was given to the Apostle Paul, and he ‘sought to go…..concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the Gospel to them,” [Acts 16:10]. Many people in the Modern Prolife Movement have heard the voice of God, grieving Him with their apathetic inaction because they were shamed by prideful Prolife Leaders, calling them potential ‘criminals’.

Nearly every single thing the Early Church did was against the law. The Apostles endured many beatings and much jail time to do what God told them to do. It was not a dirge to suffer, rather “rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ,” [Acts 5:41-42]. Lawbreakers! Even in modern rescues, brave men and women know that arrest and jail may happen, they are prepared spiritually and mentally, knowing that the unborn babies who may have died that day were saved.

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,” [James 1:2].

However, the Early Church had their share of people who stood back in inaction while others dared all, “Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly,” [Acts 5:13]. The Prolife Leaders of today do exactly that, watching others in action while they collect admiration and followers and donations. Their disdain for action is remarkable.

As Christians, we are to obey the law of the land except when it violates the Word of God. Inaction equals action? The Book of Acts alone should show the reader that it is a literal book of action, with love and the Gospel, “We ought to obey God rather than man,” [Acts 5:29].

In conclusion, this ‘New Prolife Movement is not of God. These rescue mockers use their pride and vanity to do what they do, with inaction. There are so many crimes against the unborn they are responsible for, too many to list here. God is grieved, He is insulted by this hypocrisy and heresy.

So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard,” [Acts 4:18-20].

Arise, and go! Read the Book of Acts and get ready!

Protesting Media Protests with…Protests.

So considering for a long time about all of the protests, you know, ALL OF THEM, it occurred to us that there is one thing they ALL have in common: LIVE TELEVISION COVERAGE. And that’s besides news stories, fake news, social media, etc.

KEEPLIFELEGALBUT – there is one exception to the rule of live protests, there is just one ongoing protest, for DECADES, that is unnoticed and never newsworthy: Real activism on the public sidewalk at abortion mills to save lives.

TRUE STORY!!! Right now there are hundreds of protests going on in front of abortion facilities protesting the murder of unborn children. Not one football player takes a knee for the unborn, likely because they are post-abortive AND there won’t be any television or social media presence to note the event.

In Ohio, 57 babies will die TODAY from abortion. No media, no celebs – just Christ-minded prolifers who will never get a media high-five.

However, if we want the football knee crap to stop, we suggest they stop televising the sideshow, because obviously that worked for sidewalk activism.


On the Other Side of the Prolife Movement – Rescues, Civil Disobedience, Public Shaming & Network Memos

FIRST OF ALL: All this whining about ‘civil disobedience’ is actually about PUBLIC disobedience…of the new prolife movement, or the new sacred cow protected by mean girls on Facebook.

The sidewalk is owned by NO ONE. BUT if you’re a prolifer without a group and you approach the sidewalk, like a gunslinger in a western…you will quickly KNOW who OWNS the sidewalk. The New Prolife Movement doesn’t mind discouraging prolifers if they don’t bow to their ‘system’ in place. The First Amendment is a distant memory when you deal with the sacred cow of the new prolife movement. Typical symptoms are: Disengagement, then disenfranchised, and finally totally disarmed from our first love of saving lives, helping women, and preaching the Gospel. We have literally devoid ourselves of the truth of who we are and what we do as prolifers – the new sacred cow  professing only partial truths, throwing their weight around.

Who are we, what have we become, how did we get here?

GoliathChurchSignBeing followers rather than individuals has brought us where we are as a movement. We’ve allowed the tail to wag the dog, Jesus has left the building, and we are spent and empty. THEN THE RESCUE HAPPENED.

YES we needed a REFRESHING! And just like that, a reprise of the rescue movement breathed a huge needed breath of fresh air into a displaced expanse of VOID. Certain ‘prolife’ leaders have shamed the very thing that saves lives and makes sense, conveniently forgetting how they got here. Even worse, saying rescuing did not save lives.

Groups like 40 Days for Life, Sidewalk Advocates for Life, and And Then There Were None, Prolife Wife, have voiced their opinions of what ‘proper’ prolife counseling, etiquette and presence is. I dare say that the people one particular group chose to review and poll regarding ‘approaching’ abortion minded women does not make up the majority of post-abortive and pre-abortive women. It’s embarrassing, I mean seriously…polling abortion workers??? It was like asking speeders how they want to be pulled over. Long story short, THEY DON’T.

However, can’t say that the FB Live Q&A’s, conferences, fund raisers, and the eventual epic social media temper tantrums of the new sacred cow hasn’t been entertaining.

So, as for me and my house, and on the sidewalk, we will serve the LORD because He comes first – not second or third: “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,” [Acts 3:19]. Preach the Gospel. Read the Book of Acts and get ready! This new movement has forgotten it’s first love, Jesus.

The bratty mean girls of the prolife movement need to read their Bible, not Yelp reviews or Facebook comments. SO that being said, here is a ‘review’ of what rescues mean to a multiple abortive woman:

“I cannot even FATHOM what it would have been like to see the Calvary blocking the doors of the killing place or in the waiting room with a fragrant red rose and a loving heart. WHAT IF rescuers had been there for my post-abortive mom? Not only would I have my brother or sister, but also my own child that would be 39 this year. You dumped all over part of the movement that began it all, including YOUR group [I’m done calling your GROUP a ministry because there ain’t no evidence of Jesus being in it when you shame].” More in the video below.

Look, don’t want to rescue? THEN DON’T. Just don’t shame those who are putting their futures on the line to save unborn children. And just back off.

So THAT’S where the defining line is in the Prolife Movement…Got it.

Civil Disobedience, that’s where. LOUD. AUDIBLE. SIGH. I seriously cannot believe we are still having this conversation. And the candy store prolife groups are beside themselves. Anyway, let me explain.

Last July, Operation Save America did the unthinkable [to some] and the prolife movement went INSANE: A flash from the prolife past, a bonafide RESCUE. And it was IMG_20170909_113723_634.jpgGLORIOUS. After the unconstitutional FACE law was passed, no one wanted to pass over that imaginary line, and truly I don’t blame them. No one wants a felony on their record. But conversely, no one has really tried to push the envelope yet. So, OSA did the unthinkable and blocked an abortion mill’s entrance.

Social media went NUTS with their take on the rescue. And what I mean by ‘social media’ is the attack by Sidewalk Advocates for Life and Abby Johnson’s ‘And Then There Were None’. You know, if you don’t want to rescue, FINE. But telling everyone they’re wrong makes YOU prideful and no better than a proabort.

The Red Rose Rescue happened INSIDE of three abortion mills last Friday [Sept 15]. The prolifers that did this heroic act are veterans of the movement, some who actually rescued 35+ years ago. No schleps, just boots on the ground prolifers who trust God, not ‘law’.

In response to these recent Red Rose Rescues, a Sidewalk Advocate for Life member actually reposted this nonsense [in part]: “Most of the time these actions are justified by religion. People use the bible as their excuse,” read the rest here. Okay then, let me enlighten her because if she is at all a Christ follower, she would have NEVER reposted anything so blasphemous:

FIRST: Read, read again, and RE-READ Proverbs 24:11-12 because people tend to not read verse 12 that reminds us all that we will answer for what WE DO NOT DO.

SECOND: READ Proverbs 31:8-9. When the mother of Solomon wrote “Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy“, she didn’t mention ANYWHERE to only do that on social media and fundraisers. 

THIRD: Arise, and GO! Read the Book of Acts. If the Apostles and their disciples had followed the law, you’d be in a dark closet not able to pray, say the name of JESUS much less own a Bible: “We ought to obey God rather than men,” Acts 5:29. This entire Book of Acts is ALL about street ministry and how the Church is supposed to be TODAY.

And finally, calling these rescuers criminals? If rescuing those who don’t have a voice is criminal, then you have to apologize to slave owners and Hitler.

What’s CRIMINAL is killing unborn children. I sure am thankful you’re not protecting my life with that rhetoric and junk argument. No thank you.
