Well, to be sure IF you are doing it wrong, there has to be a benchmark to judge by. And right now, I see none in the region where we live and witness.
Being a Christian comes with responsibilities to others, and not just the ‘pretty’ ones. How many times have prolife ministries come churches to be a presence on the sidewalk? But do they come? Not many, if any at all.
Okay, how many times has prolife ministries mentioned through social media a prolife ministry opportunity and hardly anyone shows?
Hmmm, and why won’t Pastors do anything outside of the box on the other side of their church doors? How many Pastors are within a quarter mile distance from the abortion facility and NEVER come to the sidewalk to pray? Is the planned execution of the unborn NOT ministry?
In a four county metro area, there are over 840K residents, and HUNDREDS of churches that circle just ONE ABORTION FACILITY. Still, no one comes. They know the need, they understand the fate of nearly every unborn baby that goes there…still no one comes.
We go to the Statehouse to protest and testify for our precious unborn, to legally further their rights as citizens to be protected. Very few Pastors come to rally at the Capital for the ‘least of these’, if any at all.
WE HAVE TO FIGHT THE OPPRESSION THAT KEEPS CHRISTIANS AND PASTORS FROM MINISTERING TO THE LOST AND DYING IN OUR OWN BACK YARD!
Everyone loses in the abortion wars; babies die, parents are heartbroken, the economy suffers, God is ANGRY and the Church does nothing when it was their fight all along.
Christians, you’re doing it wrong. Just because you don’t go doesn’t mean abortion went away. The sidewalk is still there, full of grief and pain. The sidewalk needs every one of us to go and pray.
Jesus said, “All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” [Matthew 25:32-33]
The Church allowed abortion, now it’s time to take it back. Go to the sidewalk, tell your Pastor to go to the sidewalk….and PRAY.
