Baptist Leader Denounces Prolife Christians

Read that headline again, quite a paradox, isn’t it? But not to Dwight A. Moody. He uses the term ‘protestant’ rather than Christian, which should be the first clue of a fallen or rusty Christian, particularity in conservative prolife circles. And saying that, does Mr. Moody identify as a Philistine or Pharisee or Christian? The Bible is not remiss in explaining the differences.

It’s like watching a slow horrific train wreck happening before your eyes. Christians and the Church is why abortion is still legal and justified, not Democrats, although they do love throwing gas on the fire. Democrats have no basis for anything they espouse, all they know is hatred of capitalism and the Church. The unborn are simply spittle to them, an unsavory thing to spew when told to.

This recent article from Baptist News Global depicts hatred of prolife work, anti-abortion groups and ministries as hapless idiots without enough significant basis for Dwight A. Moody’s moral compass. He steps on the Hand of Christ extended to the most helpless of all humans. How Mr. Moody must cringe in cowardice for trying to turn real Christians against prolife work that actually has basis in the Word of God. I almost feel sorry for him.  

“…too many voters disassociate their position on abortion from the lives and loves of the people who most need that service”

“If the right-to-life bunch were really concerned about such realities, they would do two things which, by and large, they rarely do: distribute contraceptives to prevent unwanted pregnancies and support policies that care for newborn children.”

WOW, that’s a pretty big assumption of all Christians who support unborn life. Moody is a moral secularist, not a Christian. Most who throw stones don’t do the work they accuse others of shirking. Does Mr. Moody feed the poor? Has he adopted or fostered? Does he pass out his precious contraception? Does he ever explain the Gospel to the underserved? Or does he just throw stones? 

I see a pile of stones.

On Mr. Moody’s Twitter account, a recent tweet says, “Racial solidarity and social justice are THE moral and spiritual issues of our time for the white churches of the south.” I would dare Mr. Moody to analyze the racially motivated extermination of unborn black babies all over the United States of America and see exactly how they are disproportionately targeted, just as Margaret Sanger and other eugenicists have forged. Over 20 MILLION black children have been killed through a legal procedure he does not denounce. 

I encourage Mr. Moody to come to the sidewalk to see his morality in action, to see broken women killing their unborn children, to witness what prolifers and ministers do on the sidewalk: pray and have conversations. Prolife ministry is part of the Book of Acts Church in ACTION. 

If you don’t lead with the Bible, all you have is human assumption and suppression. That is not a good Baptist. Or Christian. Or human. 

Our worst ‘moral failure’ as Christians is not protecting what God has created. 

#TBT: Protesters as Terrorists goes JUST ONE WAY.

Although this information came from a 2009 article and report, the impression that conservative protesters are terrorists has not changed:

Just weeks after a scandal erupted over a Department of Homeland Security report that described as “right-wing extremists” those who oppose abortion and support secure national borders, another report is revealing that the Department of Defense is teaching that protesters are “low-level terrorists.”

Do you have the audacity to:

  • Oppose abortion
  • Oppose same-sex marriage
  • Oppose restrictions on firearms
  • Oppose lax immigration laws
  • Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship, and the expansion of social programs
  • Oppose continuation of free trade agreements
  • Are suspect of foreign regimes
  • Fear Communist regimes
  • Oppose a “one world” government
  • Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world
  • Are upset with loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India, and more

Looks like this so-called terrorism only goes ONE WAY? 

When we attended the protest at the Texas state capital July of 2013, it was the ultra liberal protesters clad in orange that brought and/or threatened to bring used tampons, excrement and bottles of urine. I’m sure they forgot how they literally spit on prolifers and taunted? OH….did I mention that many of them were PAID to be there? Personally, I brought a big hat to keep the sun off my face. How’s that for extreme?

TOLERANCE BYTES: Cars, Groceries, Elitism?

We are bullied, ignored, abused, not ‘tolerated’…we are Conservative Christians. Please take your LGBT indoctrination elsewhere, but here in what was America, we have to bow down to this new elitism called TOLERANCE…which isn’t within a million miles of being tolerant of anything or anyone unless it promotes the gay agenda.

Discrimination or targeted? Obviously, Conservative Christians are treated as some kind of monster that feeds off of the so-called oppressed classes. What a lousy lie and at the VERY least, abominable.

Tolerance works just one way, the way of the protected classes. Laws are created to protect certain sects of people; there is no “all men are created equal” anymore. I suppose all businesses should have signage that says whether or not they are Conservative Christians…you know, so that they can be targeted easier. I have to wonder how many bakeries the lesbian couple went to before they found one that refused their government-protected-class-they-can-do-anything-and-not-get-persecuted rhetoric. Then, any elitist can discriminate and ruin a business that other people labored over for years and years? HOW IS THAT TOLERANT?

Do you buy groceries at Kroger? Do you drive a Chevrolet or Ford? How do you take your coffee at Starbucks? If you buy at these businesses, then you should know that every employee has been FORCED to take LGBT tolerance and diversity classes and tests, on an ongoing basis for just 4% of the total population. And if an employee chose not to take these courses of forced indoctrination, that employee will be fired. Period.

Did you know that General Motors is all in? Straight from Detroit, all dealers…you know, the OWNERS…has to abide by all diversity and tolerance training or they can lose their franchise regardless of their personal objections or conscience? General Motors shows no tolerance to the dealers that keep them IN BUSINESS. Conservative Christian GM dealership owners are forced to succumb to the gay agenda or forced out of business. Period.

FINE. Force every employee to take diversity training…but be fair and force every same employee to take tolerance training for Conservative Christian customers and employees AND make labor groups for class protection AND contribute to Conservative Christian outreaches and parades and cookie sales AND target marketing and advertising to Conservative Christian consumers/sympathizers AND philanthropic support of Conservative Christian organizations and events. I do believe that would be….at the VERY LEAST….tolerant, fair.

SO, until Conservative Christians get their fair shake, I’ll just go grab a chicken sandwich…the oppression is brutal.

Fitzgerald & Neuhardt: DEADLY for Ohio’s Unborn

Is there ‘social justice’ when at least 26,000 unborn Ohioans are murdered every year in abortion facilities? Will workers be able TO work? Will your Constitutional freedoms be protected?  NOT with Ed Fitzgerald and Sharen Neuhardt.

Every PROABORTION Democrat in Ohio is backing Ed and Sharen. I suppose it’s because they’re still smarting over the prolife legislation signed in the state budget last summer.

Ms. Neuhardt can’t find a job in the political arena…she ran for Congress against Republicans Steve Austria [2008] and Mike Turner [2012] and FAILED miserably. And since she can’t seem to get a real political job, she attacks the rights of the unborn to keep her foot in the door. Always the bridesmaid?

“I am pro-choice and always have been. I use the phrase ‘abortion should remain legal, safe and rare,” [read]. Did you catch that? The rhetoric was always ‘safe, legal and rare’ and now ‘legal’ is paramount. That’s called an ABORTION AGENDA rather than women’s health. Neuhardt was on the Board with  Planned Parenthood locally and after Cecile, CEO of PP, said that ‘For me, life began when I delivered them‘, I am quite concerned with Neuhardt’s opinion of what and when LIFE is.

Ms. Neuhardt, if you really care about women’s health, then perhaps you should consider actually helping women with the number one killer of women: Heart Disease. Having unintended children does not kill women, but abortion kills unborn women-to-be.

Time and time again, voters in Ohio spoke: NO RABID LIBERALS. So now she’s riding the coattail of an unknown who is running against a very successful governor that took Ohio out of the dark ages, or the Ted Strickland years.

Here are the facts:

Is Fitzgerald/Neuhardt good for Ohio? Not if you are unborn, unemployed or a Christian. Your fought-for Constitutional rights will be taken to task with gay/lgbt agendas, the abortion agenda and taking away your right to work.

Ms. Neuhardt and Mr. Fitzgerald, cream isn’t the only thing that rises to the top.

The Message of LIFE: What Every Pastor Should Know

As a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I believe that abortion is a non-negotiable issue. As a Christian and follower of Jesus Christ, you are commanded to respect LIFE. Any denomination or church that waffles on the Message of LIFE have lost their way and needs to go back to the altar.

IMG_20170609_070216_823I have thought a lot about how to address the Message of Life in the pulpit. Being a Prolife Advocate is difficult especially with other prolifers. Some think I’m too bold, some think I’m not bold enough. It’s kind of like how Christians think and talk about each other; some are weak, some are stronger and both point critical fingers at each other. If you have not been persecuted or criticized as a Christian or Prolifer…something is dreadfully wrong.

The boldness of a Prolife Christian comes from a joy that the world does not understand – but the world looks at us and wants what we have. Jesus is our Joy, our Love, our Peace, and our Deliverer:  John 14:27, ‘Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’

I say do what God says, not what someone else thinks I should do. When I come to a crossroad, I go to the Word of God:

  • What God says about Life  Deuteronomy 30:19 ‘I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.’
  • The Call  Ezekiel 3:17,“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me.’
  • Boldness in speech and spirit  Acts 4:31, ‘And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.’

To be frank, the Church is doing nearly nothing for the lives of our unborn. The ‘abortion’ subject is so uncomfortable that most Pastors and preachers won’t come near it. I don’t understand why it’s so hard to speak up for Life. God has given us Life:

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

AND

“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” Psalms 139:13-16

Is a picture worth a thousand words? YES.

Some prolife advocates think that hitting you between the eyes with graphic photos of aborted children is the best way to get their point across. I don’t think those photos have a place in the church building (the church body, YES); instead the biblical model of Life needs to be preached and taught thoroughly and correctly by the pastorate. This is what will lessen the need for abortion.

But if you want to see what an aborted baby looks like at every gestation, or even the actual abortion procedure, just do a ‘Google’ search. I assure you, you will find things that won’t let you sleep at night.

The Church has a hard time talking about the abortion issue, but in my experience it’s about the Message of Life, not of death. Yes, a child dies during an abortion but it’s us, the ‘living’, that make decisions to vote for one person or another that is either prolife or prochoice. It’s those decisions and the Church that keep Roe v. Wade alive and well.

And it’s also the responsibility of the members of every Church to demand that their Pastors preach the Message of Life. I know many of you have read the book ‘The Purpose Driven Life’…was the subject of abortion touched upon? Mr. Warren is under the impression that self-purposing ourselves into being saved is much more important than reaching out to unborn children that can’t speak for themselves. Mr. Warren partners with Bill and Melinda Gates who are outloud supporters of Planned Parenthood. In fact, Bill Gates father – Bill Sr. – was the head of and a board member of Planned Parenthood. Always be very aware of Pastors and preachers you read after and support. I believe Mr. Warren needs to consider a RePurposed Driven Life – to one that will actually edify the Church body.

A Call to Arms ARMED with the Word of God.

However, the Church, as a whole, has been woefully inadequate in getting the Message of Life out. The Church has stood by silently while millions of children have died these past 40 years. The Church typically stands on the excuse that the abortion issue is political. Is it political that innocent children die every day to the tune of at least 4000 per day in the United States? The answer is that abortion is a political card for Liberals; Conservatives believe that Life begins at conception and should be preserved as a right to Life and birth.

I am here to tell you that you can make a difference in the lives of the unborn. Each and every one of you probably know a woman that has had an abortion; in fact statistics say that 43% of all women under the age of 45 have had an abortion…and half of them have had more than one….that’s actually about 1/3 of all women in the United States. Think of how many post-abortive women are sitting in pews in every Church in America. Are they being ministered to or ignored?

When you get to the point of questioning why you should be ‘prolife’ or not, go back to the Life of Christ and that will answer your question.

  • Christ was born to die  Isaiah 53:5, But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.’
  • Christ was born to be our Savior  Luke 2:11, ‘For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’
  • Christ IS the way to salvation and Life  John 14:6, ‘Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’
  • Christ taught us to live by using his Life as an example  1John 2:6, ‘He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.’

Evangelizing the lost is arduous at best; evangelizing the pre-abortive parent at the abortion center is even harder. By the time most pre-abortive moms and dads get to the abortion center, they have already rationalized God out of the decision: “But God demonstrates His own love toward us [by giving us His only Son, Jesus], in that while we were still sinners [no one is sinless but Christ], Christ died for us [even for those that bitterly hated Him],” (Romans 5:8) AND ‘All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God’ (Romans 3:23).

One of the points I try to make is that only Jesus Christ was meant to die for us for our salvation. No unborn child was ever created to die for MY sins or YOUR sins. In other words, our unborn children are not created to be martyred for OUR greater good. Women in this country use their unborn children as pawns in relationship battles and other opportunities. An unborn child that would die for me does not enhance my life, instead it made my life empty of the beautiful gift that God had grace enough to give me.

Numbers don’t lie.

18% of all abortions are performed on women who identify themselves as “Born-again/Evangelical” (abortionno.org).  The breakdown is this:

  • Protestants account for 37.4% of abortions
  • Catholics account for 31.3% of abortions
  • Jewish women account for 1.3% of abortions
  • No religious affiliation obtain 23.7% of all abortions

Are you really Prolife?

There is this line in the dirt that prolifers stay on either side of – I stay on the side of making a difference in the statehouse and in churches; others are on the front lines making a difference with moms-to-be on the sidewalk in front of the abortion center. Much is the same with church members. This is more than one way to be a prolife advocate. You don’t have to be a sign carrying protester or sidewalk counselor; I believe God purposes certain people to do those things. People drive past abortion centers where Prolifers are and throw trash at them and yell obscenities – but now and then you get a kind word and a beautiful testimony. I promise you, it’s well worth it.

Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
