"The right of speech - the liberty to utter our own convictions freely, at all times and in all places, at discretion, unawed by fear, unembarrassed by force - is a gift of God to every member of the family of man, and should be preserved inviolate" - Stephen Symonds Foster
The Pro-Life Evangelical Christian Church in America - the American Church - is GUILTY of Child Sacrifice and is a Brotherhood of Murderers
As Professor Mary Ann Glendon has observed, compared to any country in Europe, East or West, we still would not find any country where there is so little restriction on abortion in principle as there is in the United States. . . . Today, in order to find a country where the legal approach to abortion is as indifferent to unborn life as it is in the United States, we have to look to countries which are much less comparable to us politically, socially, culturally and economically, and where concerns about population overrides both women’s liberty and fetal life. Mary Ann Glendon, Abortion and Divorce in Western Law 2, 24 (1987).
Roe v. Wade unleashed on a non-resistant American people the ultimate tyranny, authorizing on the national level the deprivation of the God given right to life that was declared inalienable in the United States's Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness". Since the Supreme Court judgment and the silence and complicity of the American Church, almost 60 million Americans have been deprived of their lives by the instruments of abortion, be they mechanical or chemical.
The American people have not resisted this tyranny. They have, rather, embraced the right to murder the preborn as a fundamental right of mothers, treating the preborn as mere property of the mother, to be disposed of at will. The American people, in fact, demanded this cruelty to the preborn, solemnly legislating the "right" to abortion in 20 states even before the Roe decision. Of those, abortion was available on demand in 4 states. Even to this day, fully 81% of Americans think abortion ought to be legal in at least some circumstances.
The American Church, like the people at large, has not only not resisted the abortion holocaust, but in every way like the heathen at large, the Church has embraced it. Moreso, the American Church has more guilt in that they have violated the commands of the Christ they profess as Lord.
Thou shalt not murder. We have before established in previous articles that the dismemberment of the preborn is an act of murder by the mother, who has hired the assassin, the abortionist, to slay her offspring. The necessary elements to the crime in the eyes of God were the providential analysis that the value of the preborn was in their soul and spirit, and that the Almighty declared them to be made in His image from the moment the human sperm met the human egg, and there was conception. From that moment, God declared that "Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." (Genesis 9:6).
We will now set about to establish the guilt of the Church in the abortion holocaust on several foundations - that abortion happens in the Church, that Abortion is supported by the Church, and that there is a collective responsibility of the social fabric of America for the abortion holocaust. Finally, Christians have a greater responsibility to obey the commands of Christ, the secondmost being summarized to love their neighbors as themselves, and in this they have utterly failed.
Abortion in the American Church
On November 23, 2015, Lifeway Research published the results of research, commissioned by Care Net, a non-profit agency supporting more than 1,100 pregnancy centers in America. One of the main findings was that 43% of women who have murdered their child in an abortion were church goers at the time they sacrificed their child. In the survey of 1,038 women who have had an abortion, 70% reported a Christian religious preference, and 43% of the total surveyed attended church at least monthly at the time of their first or subsequent abortion.
35% of Christian women who have had an abortion indicate they attend religious services at least once a week or more often. 33% of Protestant women who have had an abortion are Baptist, while 31% indicate they affiliate with the Lutheran, Methodist or Presbyterian denominations.
In recent research by the Pew Research Center, only a small percentage of self-identified Christians claiming religious affiliation believe abortion ought to always be illegal. In fact, a strong percentage of white evangelical protestant, black protestant, catholic and white mainline protestant believe abortion ought to be legal in some or all circumstances:
IF Christians obeyed the commands of Christ, they would not allow for abortion in any circumstances and would uniformly view it as murder in all circumstances. Yes, church goer, on Sunday mornings you are worshipping and fellowshipping with a multitude of murderers, those who have paid the assassin to dismember their own children even this week.
Anecdotally, abolitionists who regularly minister the gospel outside of abortion mills find church goers, or those claiming Jesus Christ, getting abortions, paying for abortion, and being profane and unrepentant all the while. Here are just some scenes from local abortion mills of abortion-bound Christian, church going mothers or fathers paying for their children to be murdered:
Abortion is Supported by the Church
What is the Church if not those claiming redemption by the blood of the Lamb or claiming to be adherents of the Lord Jesus Christ? When the heathen considers Christianity, how do they define the Church if not those who make a public profession of Christ? How about those who regularly attend a Christian place of "worship"? How about those who claim faith in Christ in their doctrinal statements?
Abortion, rather, child sacrifice, is rampantly supported by the Church in a myriad of ways. Right here in North Idaho exists a rather large, evangelical, pro-life Christian church attended by between 7 and 8 thousand people weekly. Among the attenders, we have found the security guard of the Planned Parenthood surgical abortion mill 26 miles from the church doors. 32 children a week are murdered by their mothers at that altar to Molech, and we regularly encounter Jeff Kovash in his embroidered security shirt, employed by PP. When we raised our concern that Jeff was attending Real Life Ministries in Post Falls (RLM), we were informed by the senior pastor of RLM that they consider Jeff to be a brother, and that he, in fact, was a MEMBER of RLM, having affirmed that he is actually "pro-life".
Now, one could claim that a church supports abortion by its silence, and we will be making that claim, especially when you consider this quote by Edmund Burke "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". But, what about when the senior pastor of RLM does not repudiate the evil in which a member is engaged with the following explanation:
"Jeff is a member (We have thousands) but as you probably know we dont ask people where they work on our membership covenant. He is a brand new believer in the last little while and now volunteers. When our guys asked him about" (his work at Planned Parenthood) "He told them that he is anti abortion. He had to agree with that stance to become a member--it's in our class. He said his job has given him the opportunity to share Christ with several co workers and he has even gotten the chance to talk to some women who have gone there --of course we see the problem and are working with him now to work through this as I also would not in good conscience be able to work there".
Now, keep in mind that Jeff provides security for the largest abortion provider in the United States, and at the facility where he works, over 1,600 image bearers of God, the preborn, are murdered every year. The scripture is clear - have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them - from Ephesians 5, which also says in verses 6-7 "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them". Was James misguided when he wrote "know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God?"
The pastor of this mega-Christian church went on to explain "I agree that Planned Parenthood is known for abortion but we also know that it is a health provider for poor women as well --so is Kootenai Hospital as well as Sacred Heart-- (If I have my info correct)". Is this pastor seriously arguing in favor of an altar to Molech as providing legitimate healthcare services? He went on to say "We both agree abortion is horrible and murder --we dont agree on the right way to handle it. I am praying for our country and for you believe it or not. I pray for our culture that is willing to murder the most precious of all Gods created beings --children. We both agree that God is going to judge our country and the world for this sin along with many others. I know He would rather save people than judge them so I am praying for opportunities for our people to both save a child and love a girl who has made a mistake and needs the good news that Jesus saves".
Is murdering a child just a "mistake"? Would the Lord Jesus Himself rather that a millstone were hung around the neck and she be drowned in the sea of one who would offend a child made by God in God's own image? When will the American Church take seriously the commands of Jesus and the heart of Jesus in relation to abortion? The American Church's attitude about abortion was well summarized this presidential election cycle when major party candidate Donald Trump suggested to MSNBC's Chris Matthews in an interview that women who get abortions should be punished (if abortion were outlawed), and the American Church bent over backward to distance themselves from and denunciate that fact.
An example - Leading Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore, the
president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious
Liberty Commission, wrote an op-ed arguing that pro-lifers need to
make it clear that "Protecting unborn babies is not about punishing
women, but punishing an industry and a culture that dehumanizes
If these same mothers came to murder our born or unborn children, would we still treat them as victims? Or would the American church want them treated as perpetrators of a crime that merits justice? This is the crux - are the preborn different than we are? Are they different than our born children in how we should treat their murders? Or, are we to love our preborn neighbors as ourselves? Of course we should, since we are commanded to, and if we would demand justice for our own children, we should demand justice on behalf of other children. Would we demand justice be executed on a mother who murdered her born child? Then, we should shed our ageist prejudice in that the American church has granted a special dispensation to murder their children without earthly consequence based on the age, size and location of the preborn child.
More Evidence That The American Church Supports Abortion
Some Christians are quick to classify "Christians" who get abortions as not really Christian. But, are there real Christians that lie? Do real Christians have pride, or backbite, or gossip, or commit fornication, or adultery? Are there real Christians who steal? If there are Christians who are in unrepentant sin, the biblical prescription would be to put them out from among us. Why then, are we tolerating in our midst Christians who engage in the aforementioned practices including the sacrifice of their children? 1 Corinthians 5 contains the motivation behind putting out a sinning Christian from amongst us so that the Devil would either destroy the person's body, or they would be led to repentance and could be restored to our fellowship. When we fail to exercise church discipline, especially for the sin of child sacrifice, we are failing to obey our Lord. Discipline has with it the goal and motivation of repentance and restoration. It also has the fruit of putting away darkness from among us. In the case of child sacrifice, it would also yield the fruit of actually saving those who would be slaughtered, since the desire to avoid church discipline is a motivator to keep other Christians walking in the Light.
Worse than a lack of American church discipline though, is the fact that many churchs' position statements actually support child sacrifice. While there has been a temptation to say mainline denominations are not really "the Church" or that liberal churches are not really from among us, what do their statements of faith say? Do they not bring cuplability to all of us by their association with Christ as they actually defend child sacrifice? Is not the American church inextricably yoked together by a shared statement of faith in Christ?
The United Methodist Church (UMC), Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) and the Seventh Day Adventist Church are all forms of the American Church. The UMC and PCUSA both profess protestantism, observing the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper. From the UMC's main website, we find the following statement "In thinking about our faith, we put primary reliance on the Bible. It’s the unique testimony to God’s self-disclosure in the life of Israel; in the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ; and in the Spirit’s work in the early church. It’s our sacred canon and, thus, the decisive source of our Christian witness and the authoritative measure of the truth in our beliefs". Yet, there we also find this regarding abortion "We recognize tragic conflicts of life with life that may justify abortion, and in such cases we support the legal option of abortion under proper medical procedures by certified medical providers. We support parental, guardian, or other responsible adult notification and consent before abortions can be performed on girls who have not yet reached the age of legal adulthood. We cannot affirm abortion as an acceptable means of birth control, and we unconditionally reject it as a means of gender selection or eugenics". The UMC is a founding member of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, a pro-abortion advocacy organization.
Similarly, PCUSA says "Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in
the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship
and serve". That is a strong statement from a church that also
resolves "The state has a limited legitimate interest in
regulating abortions and in restricting abortions and in restricting
abortions in certain circumstances. (b) Within this context of the
state’s limited legitimate interest, no law should impose criminal
penalties against any woman who chooses or physician who performs a
medically safe abortion. (c) Within this same context of the state’s
limited legitimate interest, no law should deny access to safe and
affordable services for the persons seeking to terminate a problem
pregnancy. (d) No law or administrative decision should provide for
a complete ban on abortion. (e) No law or administrative decision
should (i) limit access to abortions;
But the American "Church" argues that these mainline denominations do not represent us or the true Church in this wickedness. But, isn't it similarly wicked to say you oppose abortion in all cases but not actually lift a finger of interposition to demand justice and remonstrate against the slaughter?
The American church cries that the Supreme Court has ruled and we must obey. It is the law of the land. Is this the same argument we'd make if the Supreme Court ruled that our 5 year olds should be rounded up and put to death? Or that Christians should be rounded up and put to death?
Murder without any remonstrance. Without any attempt at interposition.
"If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus.
James 2:8 - "If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well". What is love? Is it having the right moral opinion in regard to the slaughter of your preborn neighbor? Jesus demonstrated through a story what love is in Luke 10 - "29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? 30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 and went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise".
The demonstration of love Jesus illustrated was through direct aid to the one in need. James, the brother of Jesus affirmed a similar teaching "What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?"
Within miles of the evangelical, pro-life, American Christian Church, 21,000 preborn neighbors were murdered this week. 21,000 more will be murdered over the next seven days. Is it love to wish them to depart in peace? To be warm and filled? Is it enough to say you hate abortion, that you despise it? That is exactly what we have heard from countless Christians with possibly the right moral opinion about the question of child sacrifice - "we agree with you abolitionists. We hate abortion just like you do. It is despicable!" And they give a thumbs up, a honk of the horn, and they drive on. Perhaps they explain that there are other important things to be done. Looking at the church calendar of a modern American church, it is difficult to see the priority of the abortion holocaust:
Looking through other church calendars, there are AWANAs, potlucks, BBQ's, church camps. Looking through the list of ministries that the church engages, is there even a voice remonstrating at the abortion mill? In our local city, where in one building the murder of 1,600+ preborn happens each year, there is NOT ONE evangelical, pro-life, "conservative Christian" on the sidewalk on the three kill days a week calling out to the murderers and attempting to "deliver those who are being drawn to death" (Proverbs 24:11-12). Except for a few and occasional, praying Roman Catholics, and a few speaking abolitionists, there is no one to speak out on behalf of those appointed to destruction. Before it commends the "Proverbs 31 woman", does the scripture not say "Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy"?
But the American church claims "we do speak - we preach against the evil of abortion from the pulpit". If you were appointed to die against your will and unjustly, tomorrow, would you consider it sufficient that a pastor preached about it today? Would you rather prefer that someone prioritized the prevention of your death and interposed themself in some fashion between you and the executioner? And is the pastor really even preaching against the sin of abortion in the American Church?
In a telephone survey of 1,002 senior church leaders conducted
in October 2008, Protestant pastors who identified themselves as
politically conservative or very conservative are more likely to
speak to their churches on homosexuality and the unborn than
their liberal counterparts, according to Ed Stetzer, vice
president of LifeWay Research and Ministry Development.
So, 11% do not speak once a year, and of those who do once a year, is it more than once a year? Is twice a year enough to appease the consciences for the bloodshed of 60 million American innocents? Is the speech of 5 minutes or 30? Does a single speech a year deliver those being murdered? Would you be satisfied if someone gave a speech about your unjust sentence to death, once a year?
The Collective Responsibility of the American Church and America at Large
It is now necessary to cast a broader net of what constitutes guilt for the murder of the preborn. Murder is to deprive the life of another human being, another image bearer of God. The image that we bear is not of the physical, since God is spirit. Rather, it is the human spirit and soul, perhaps even the trinity of body, soul and spirit that is in the image of God. We know that a human is a unique being in God's image from the moment of conception and that life can not be deprived intentionally without culpability for murder in the judgment of God.
Like slaveholding of the 19th century in America, decriminalized, rampant abortion is a social crime. While the murders are individual acts, the responsibility on the scale at which we see abortion, 1 million or more murdered babies a year, is a responsibility of the whole society. 60 million over 43 1/2 years.
Murders of the born, a criminal act and prosecuted as such, take place at the rate of only about 14,000 a year, a rate of only 1% or so of murders of the preborn. No single individual can ever murder at least 1 million neighbors a year. It is only when society associates together and combine their influence or their apathy, that the murder of 1 million people can occur. Any connection an individual has to this large associated social fabric that enslaves the preborn to death, constitutes one's culpability. The nature of the criminality of the holocaust is not ameliorated by a greater number of individuals involved in the atrocity of commission or silence or lack of remonstrance and resistance. If 260 millions of Americans conspire to support the institution of abortion, and another 60 million are largely silent, then the whole of the 320 million share in the guilt for the slaughter of the 1 million victims annually.
Private moral disagreement and opinion do not absolve one of their guilt for the holocaust. A man may say he opposes an evil, but if his actions do not support his opposition, his claim is of no value and is, in effect an ally of the evil. Even though there are only 1 million mothers actually hiring the assassin each year in America, it is the 320 million silent or supportive that are no less the murderers. It is no palliation of offense to hold a private moral opinion and not to act in defiance of evil.
Why does the American Church, who largely claims it "hates" the evil of abortion, countenance, aid, participate in, make excuses for, or abet the murderous industry? If murderers have their part in the lake of fire at the final judgment, then why does the American Church treat murderers as "victims" rather than treat the bloodied, MURDERED preborn as the ONLY real victims in the systemic sin and crime of abortion? The fact that the American Church claims largely to be against abortion when actually failing to act in any immediate way so as to rescue the dying or oppose the holocaust, in fact, only serves to enhance the church's guilt, since their oft stated claim that they "hate" it shows that they are not unconscious of the wrongs of the holocaust.
If I witness a mother murdering a born child on the street, I might be excused once for my lack of action due to my surprise or confusion at finding such an occurrence. However, if I know exactly where mothers are regularly murdering their children, and I do not publicly oppose the acts nor do I vociferously and with all supplication call for justice to be applied and the children to be saved, though I did not wield the instruments of death myself, by my countenance and lack of action I lent support to the system that allows the deaths. I am a murderer, though I did not get the blood on my own hands. It matters little who commits the acts, if the whole of society stands by and permits the acts to occur.
Even if I am at a distance from the scene of the deaths, going about my own business, my own personal knowledge of the ongoing atrocity, and my personal lack of remonstrance or action against it, demonstrates my guilt and complicity. The American Church, like all of America, like her magistrates and her citizens, is stained with the moral turpitude which attaches to the mother and the abortionist and the security guard who are complicit in the actual act of innocent bloodshed.
The American Church is supposed to be standing in the gap and be the watchmen on the wall. But, instead, they are like, in slave times, the watch dogs of the plantation, in their silence and lack of resistance and submission to the courts and "laws", or they themselves are even purchasing the services of the abortionist butchers.
Rather than establishing justice for the poor and the needy in the gates, they are turning a blind eye to the sacrifice of their preborn brethren. The American Church is a brotherhood of murderers of the preborn.
