Bible Study: The Accountability of Abortion Sin, Romans 6

In this study, we will look at the sin of abortion from the unsaved pro-abortion side, starting with the altar of Molech. Molech sacrificed children to another god, or rather he sacrificed against the one true God, murdering His creation. This evil sin of child killing was addressed in Leviticus 18:21, “And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, not shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.”

KEEPLIFELEGALGod made it clear that it was as profane to kill these children upon the altar of Molech as it is to profane the name of God; He associates Himself with His Creation, and killing any of them is as killing Him. These children were a literal burnt offering to a false god, much like today as the unborn are murdered upon the altar of the false god of abortion.

Is abortion a religion? Yes. Anything can be a religion, which was addressed in the second commandment, “You shall have no other gods before Me,” Exodus 20:3. Interestingly, the definition of religion, in part, says: “a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.” Read the entire definition here. NOT ONE TIME was God or Jesus mentioned in that, which proves religion has absolutely NOTHING to do with God or Jesus.

Abortion is a religion, with their own gods and worship and devoted followers. Abortion’s ancestry is rooted in the ritualistic burnt offering of children upon an altar of a false god as worship, as it is today.

Today, the religious continues to kill through abortion, believing in their sin rather than the one true God. “…Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? Romans 6:1. They make an idol out of abortion, they worship it and love it. With every religion, there is an idol, a false ‘god’. Making an idol out of anything is making a religion, a thing that is unholy, to preserve a sin to somehow make it ‘holy’. Their religion of abortion – God calls it sin – continues because they believe in a false god, a false grace, a false hope, a false redemption, that it is sanctified by their personal ‘god’.

Conversely, some professing Christians

hold onto another Jesus, another Gospel, another grace, another cross, rather than the Cross of Christ when excusing abortion. A recent story said that a Pastor was witnessing outside of an abortion mill when a woman came for an appointment whose family is a member of his church. He knew her personally, even baptized her. Then, why was she there? She heard the Gospel and the message of life, and still she came for an abortion appointment. Whose God does she believe?

“What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid,” Romans 6:15. But that is exactly what happened, she and many other professing Christians put their unborn child upon the altar of abortion because they believe the false god and it’s false grace. I know people in Gospel preaching churches that will sin because they have hope in another Jesus, another Gospel, that sin will be forever hidden and even sanctified. Being hidden is not accurate because the Bible says “But if you do not do so, then take note, you have sinned against the Lord; and be sure your sin will find you out,” (Numb 32:23.) And while it is true that a woman can be forgiven of her abortion sin, there will still be consequences of that sin, for a time that can take years.

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap,” Galatians 6:7. Christian men and women who “neglect so great a salvation” put themselves on that same altar as their unborn child. They know the Way, ignore it, and expect not to have consequences – results – from the sin of abortion.

KEEPLIFELEGALFriends, this is just not that hard. God has NEVER changed, not for any person or any thing or any law: “For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life,” (Gal 6:8). The One True God calls abortion sin an abomination. God does not cause confusion, but gives us hope and love and Jesus, “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints,” (1Cor 14:33).

The author of confusion – the devil himself – puts false gods before us to frustrate our relationship with God and cause us to sin. Abortion is the god of many, a religion that is vast, holy to those who admire and worship it. But it’s consequence is eternal.

“But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him,” (1Cor 8:6).

Bible Study: Inaction of the ‘New’ Prolife Movement, Part 1

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].

40 Days For Life Model Does Not Work.

This has been an interesting thing for me. I’ve pondered and considered everything, all the prolife movement has to offer. And it pains me to even think this out loud, but the 40 Days for Life model does not work, and it wasn’t set up to.

Now, while a bunch of my friends are gasping at this, I must try to explain this as simply as I can without pointing persecuting fingers at anyone or any entity. Look, the people who participate in 40DFL are gems. Truly. But if I only see you during 40DFL, then this has become a dismal failure.

I loved 40DFL. I found it online in 2008. I saw this term I never heard before, post-abortive. It was like looking into a mirror, I got it. I needed it. But after all these years, I finally had to take a hard look at 40DFL. I did not like what I saw.

For the most part, and I mean MOST, people who participate in 40DFL will only come during their allotted time they signed up for and when the campaign is over, that’s it. We don’t see them until the next campaign. WHY? Well, as an ex-catholic, I’m pretty sure I know the answer: It’s works based rather than Holy Spirit led.

The 40DFL model has never said they advocate for any one religion. However, they have not done what they should to bring more Evangelical Christians [Baptist, COG, AG, etc.] or Protestant Christians [Episcopal, UMC, Lutheran, etc.], if anything at all. Everything has been Catholic based, and if the Spring Campaigns haven’t proven that starting off on Ash Wednesday, then you aren’t paying attention. And for this, I blame 40DFL for passively advocating for Catholics rather than Evangelical Christians. 40DFL has chased away Evangelicals and Protestants because they see 40DFL as Catholic only. Maybe 40DFL assumed that Evangelicals follow Catholic traditions? Rather, we simply follow the Bible and the Holy Spirit, not a liturgy or sabbath keeping or sacraments.

The model was supposed to bring more people to the sidewalk of abortion mills with the intent of showing folks that they are needed year round. But for the most part, and I mean MOST, that has not happened. The 40DFL model is supposed to attract more participants, all of us, and show us that we are needed to shut down abortion mills. 40DFL – and other prolife groups – like to take all the glory when a mill shuts down, but the truth is that graphic public outreaches work which takes abortion money away, or maybe the law was finally in our favor.

Last campaign, it was quite obvious that 40DFL tried to ‘own’ the sidewalk for the 40 days campaigns; no graphic images, not allowed to openly advocate for rescues, speakers had to be some kind of androgynous 40DFL approved prolifer, etc. As an Evangelical Christian, that binds the hands of God from doing with us His Will.

Prayer and passivity [acceptance of what happens, without active response or resistance] is the 40DFL model, and that is exactly what they got…and continue to get. Passivity has never won one soul to Heaven but it will send someone straight to hell. Other outreach models DO work, ones that preach the Gospel, share Jesus, and loves someone enough to tell them they are wrong and need a Savior.

So I suppose the moral of this story is this: 40DFL is not going to change, neither is there model. It’s the 80/20 rule, only 20% or less will continue being on the sidewalk all year. That is a awful shame.

Pray to end abortion? Arise and go, DO SOMETHING.

From the Pious to Seekers, Relevant & Traditional Churches on Sanctity of LIFE Sunday

Sanctity of Life Sunday is the day that churches think they can absolve themselves by addressing abortion ONCE while DOING less than NOTHING for the unborn the rest of the year. It’s like people who only show up at church for Easter and Christmas. It’s lame and very telling. You’re either in or OUT.

Some churches will say that they ‘go into all the world to preach the gospel’, and that GREAT!! Really, it is!!! They believe this is on the ground ministry, and it is a great start. But without any real ministries led by Christians who love to help others, it’s empty. And people really want to help others, with the Gospel in one hand and a tangible need in the other.

But churches stop there and conveniently forget the Book of Acts that took not just the Gospel but also real life, real time NEED TO THE PEOPLE: Food, shelter, medical, etc – the ACTS of the APOSTLES is exactly that!!! They ACTED!!!! They were boots on the ground men and women who did the dirty work, the real work, real ministry for the Lord. So, go ahead and preach on the unborn and abortion TODAY. Now….what about tomorrow??? Too many churches hide behind Mark 16:15 as their excuse.

ARISE & GO! If your church is doing no prolife work at all, then go to your Pastor and ask why. Then, ARISE & GO and start one! Because if you don’t, no one will. So, if you’re going to preach on it, GREAT!!! But now you have to back it up tomorrow. Moms and babies and families NEED YOU.

So I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Arise and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all things which are appointed for you to do.’ Acts 22:10

BREAKING: Sin of Abortion Cannot Be Outlawed. Yet.

And that, my friends, is a true statement. The reason for the post is because an ‘abolitionist’ said: “Christians who lamely remark ‘abortion will be with us forever’ are precisely the reason why.”

Actually, I should have written the ‘abolitionist’ WRONGLY said. And here’s why.

First – Remember that I am an ordained & licensed minister. I am aware of the Word of2016-07-21 10.46.41 God. I do not flippantly remark on the things of God, nor the implications. This is how people get into wrong doctrine and absolute cults. Any deviation from the written Word of God OR putting ANYTHING between you and the Cross of Christ is H E R E S Y. And that is regardless of anything. Skewing the Word of God to sort out your personal ‘beliefs’ is H E R E S Y, For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; v19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book,” Rev 22:18-19.

Second – The world will always have sin in it until Jesus comes back. Period. We will never be without sin, but as an individual we can take specific sins out of our lives. To better understand that, read and re-read Romans 5,6,7 & 8. The sin nature is powerful! But we have Jesus, “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace,” Romans 6:14.

Third – In order to ‘eradicate’ sin, and in this instance a particular sin, you must reach their heart. Evangelism is personal, a heart-to-heart relationship with Christ to know that you are a sinner. Abortion is a sin, and knowing that is the first first step, “v1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. v2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death,” Romans 8:1-2.

Then finally – Never, NEVER has any law EVER made a sin (homicide, drugs, theft, etc.) go away. NOT ONE TIME. Nor will it ever.

People still shoot each other regardless of the law.

People still do/sell/overdose on drugs regardless of the law.

People still steal other people’s stuff regardless of the law.

People will abort their unborn children regardless of any laws, whether abortion is outlawed or with incremental laws. The one thing that proaborts got right is that outlawing abortion will create the so-called ‘back alley abortion’. People will always break the law, even knowing the end game, abortion is no different. But that does not make the argument to keep unborn baby murder legal.

Friends: The Bible says, “v12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;  v13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure,” Phil 2:12-13.

No, sin cannot be eradicated until Jesus comes back for His Church. And until then:

“v21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. v22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Happy New Year.
