Pastors Guide to Preaching & Teaching Abortion Exceptions

This is a Pastors Guide to teaching and preaching about abortion in the pulpit, the media and social media utilizing the Bible as the guide to all matters. Any Pastor that relies on a person’s opinion rather than the entirety of Scripture needs to hand in his/her ordination. That being said, understanding the Pastoral Letters [1&2 Timothy, Titus] should make the Pastor [and staff] completely understand why there is no room for ‘opinion’ or ‘exceptions’ to scripture.

Just as any Minister, I am ordained by a ministry/church that I trusted and loved. Imagine my surprise and heartbreak to know that a lead Pastor and some Associate Pastors believe that abortion is ever reasonable. I would not have believed it myself until I heard it with my own ears in the pulpit during a worldwide church service, which set on the ears of perhaps MILLIONS. 

This Pastor said, “Abortion is MURDER!” and followed up with “except to save the life of the mother.” I was devastated, disappointed and MAD. How dare he say he is prolife when it is quite apparent that he is pro-abortion? By saying this, he opened the door wide to many accepting abortion rather than against it. Any exception to any rule leads people in the direction of the exception. And lest we forget, exceptions make that person and Pastor AS God, rather than letting God BE God. 

The Church should be the child’s champion, not executioner.

I go to the Word of God, just as any Minister or Child of God should do. The reason why the Church is an absolute mess is because of ‘exceptions’ to the Word of God, the rule of Scripture. And by that I mean accepting homosexuality and abortion knowing full well the Bible teaching against sexual sin and murder. 

Nope, this ain’t rocket science…just Bible. All of it. NOT deviating from it. THAT is why I am a Minister, protecting what is pure and good and perfect.

1Timothy 6:3-5 says: 

v3 If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness,
v4 he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions,
v5 useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.

  • Verse 3 is quite clear about teaching ‘otherwise’, exceptions, straying from the truth for any reason.
  • Verse 4 indicates that pride protects the sin & sinner with acceptance which causes confusion.
  • Verse 5 makes it quite clear that if there is no resolution with this Pastor, turn away. Find yourself another Church/Pastor that agrees and teaches the entire Word of God without exception.

The Pastoral Letters were written to Pastors for a reason. There were problems with many Churches in the beginning of the Church Age because many went back to or mingled with what was not of God. These things were addressed in the New Testament because the purity of the Gospel was being perverted even at such an early time. Obviously, this has not changed much with ‘churches’ popping up everywhere calling themselves ‘accepting’ without properly evangelizing the lost.

Straying from any biblical truth is dangerous and prideful, even if without proper teaching, “…although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief,” [1Tim 1:13]. Of course we want to let the Pastor/Church know that even in ignorance, the scriptures should always be searched diligently to have the correct answer to any question. But not all Pastors/Churches wish to acknowledge their lack of biblical wisdom, but rather keep their opinion because of their pride. It is quite clear that this Pastor that I’ve spoken of is protecting the sin of abortion because of an abortion he has intimate knowledge of. No one can be that vehement of something without being privy to it. 

And finally, 1Timothy 3:5 says, “…for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?” As I mentioned above, this Pastor, and a plethora of others, lean on exceptions to protect the sin and sinner. And if they find that to be acceptable in their own house, how can the ever lead a congregation of people who trust him/her?  

To summarize the sin of abortion exception and acceptance, Pastors should remember that a child martyred for the mother’s life – or anyone else – still goes through a heinous death of their skull being crushed, arms and legs being torn off, and their tiny, beating heart left to stop beating on a cold stainless steel table…and their final resting place in an incinerator or being dumped in a landfill.

The God-INTENDED Feminist, Part 2

Being an ordained minister, I know what a God-intended feminist is, there are so many great women to list in this post. The first obvious God-intended feminist is the Prophetess Deborah who was a leader well before there were suffragettes. The next one that comes 2016-07-21 10.46.41ato mind is Esther, she literally put her life on the line to free her people. This is probably my favorite, Bathsheba. She was an adulterer, repentant, and became the mother of Solomon. Even more notably, The Proverbs 31 Woman. I love her best because she really made a mess of her life, cleaned it up, and through God’s Grace became the benchmark that every woman should aspire to be. And that’s just in the Old Testament.

So when I see the ‘new’ feminism, especially in the prolife movement, as a Christian and minister I am offended that any woman would label themselves a ‘new’ feminist. Never has a so-called movement been so clearly not of God, nor of polite society.

Feminism was not meant to be ugly and mean, but here we are. And the prolife movement is no exception to this ugliness. This ‘new’ feminism is very interesting to me, but even more so are the splinter groups that have formed, both prolife and proabort sides. Just to make this clear, I am NOT surprised that progressive feminists are evil and vile. It’s obvious, kind of like daring people to cross them, or whatever. I find it very cartoony and simple, obnoxious and funny. These ‘women’ really believe they speak for all women.

What is more disturbing and reprehensible are the faux-life feminists. I mean seriously. What really separates them from proaborts? Because if I saw them side by side, I’d have a pretty rough time seeing or hearing the difference, and not because of their appearance, but because of their shaming, shunning, filthy language, lack of sensibilities and basic manners.

The capability to be in polite society should set us apart from the animals, but how would anyone know the difference? My way or the highway, throw friends under the bus, cop a lousy attitude.

Then, what happened to the God-intended feminists? Why is the faux-life movement so offended at the real things of God? Why are prolife Christian women judged as being extreme? To that, I say THANK YOU FOR NOTICING. Being set apart for such a time as this is called MINISTRY. Much like the OT and NT God-intended feminists, I trust God, not feminism, to do what God has called me to do, a task taken seriously without apology.

But why are the ‘new’ feminists so mean to the God-intended feminists? Maybe being a Trump Conservative was just too much to deal with. Are we too old to be ‘relevant’? That’s ageism. No preaching on the sidewalk? That’s persecution. No graphic imagery? That’s not telling the whole truth.

Look, it’s real easy to be the popular one when you go out of your way to look and sound the part. But when you refuse to set yourself apart from the opposition, all you’ve done is a whole bunch of nothing, causing confusion, being part of the problem. And that’s too bad. There is so much more for you.

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” [Romans 12:2]

 

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

The stain on the floor is blood.

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].

Arise, and GO: Welcome to KeepLifeLegal.

KeepLifeLegal is the Book of Acts in MOTION. The Church began there and continues, even TODAY! Acts is a Book without end, it’s tenets and doctrine absolute. Prolife/Anti-abortion Ministry is a boots on the ground initiative, much like the Early Church: “We ought to obey God rather than men,”[Acts 5:29].

IMG_20170609_070216_823Being post-abortive, my difficulty with my past soon faded as the Lord brought women to me that would tell me about their own abortion experiences. I had to give my past to the Lord so He could gird me with the strength and Faith to do His perfect will to teach healing to these precious, fragile and victimized women. Forgiveness is something that most post-abortive women won’t do for themselves, but is the start we need to begin Life again; fighting and pleading for the lives and souls of others is the natural next step for healing:

“Open your mouth for the speechless,
I
n the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.”
Proverbs 31:8-9

Who we are: KeepLifeLegal exposes the abortion agenda from the pulpit, on the sidewalk, in the media, and at the Statehouse.

What we do: We seek to evangelize the lost, preach & teach post-abortion healing, see every abortion mill closed, babies saved, families restored.

What do you do for LIFE? Is your church prolife? Are your elected officials or candidates prolife? Are you sure YOU are prolife? While you mull that over, remember that an unborn child is aborted every 30 seconds in the United States, over 1 MILLION every day around the world. Don’t be a prolifer in name only. See these stats in real time here.
