Finally, a useful church sign. Unfortunately it’s from a church that is 50 miles from my hometown. It says, “End the war against babies. Stop Abortion Now.”
This is in response to this article where the author claims that abortion clinic protesters haven’t thought deeply about the message they are proclaiming. She saw a man protesting at an abortion clinic, but she judges him as having failed to put himself in the shoes of the abortive mothers. He didn’t hold up signs showing distraught women saying “This is the hardest decision of my life.” Nor did he have pictures of impoverished families suffering financial strain from raising multiple children or a sad child wondering why his rape victim mother doesn’t seem to love him.
Every single argument the author makes is moot if the unborn baby is a human being (as opposed to some sub-human species). However, if the author were to acknowledge that the unborn is human, then her arguments for the freedom to murder apply to people of all ages.
Here’s a thought experiment for you. Imagine if the euthanization of infants were legalized.
The mother heading off with her 1-month old to the euthanization clinic could use all the same arguments as the author uses for abortion. Maybe she thought she could care for her baby conceived in rape, but the baby reminds her of the rapist. She should have the freedom to put the child put to death, right? The baby uses his mother’s body like a parasite. He can’t even roll over. He is completely dependent on his mother for food and shelter.
Euthanizing her son was a difficult decision–one she didn’t arrive at lightly. Maybe her friends and relatives will shun her, but the baby makes demands that are too great. Do you know how much diapers cost? Do you know what it’s like to feed a baby every 3 hours, night and day with no days off and no vacation in sight?
The child, being the illegitimate offspring of a rapist, is going to live a terrible life of poverty. He’s going to cost his mother the chance at a good job and a college education. This trip to the clinic is really for his own good. If he only knew the life he’d be facing, he’d be thanking his mother for this mercy killing.
The truth is that some of the greatest people in history have grown up in poverty. Their parents struggled to feed them, and they went without food occasionally. I seriously doubt there are children going hungry in America today except for those whose parents are mentally ill or abusive. Would those children who are having a tough time be better off dead? The author claims they would be.
The truth is that humans are created in God’s image. Babies in their mother’s womb have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, regardless of what the Supreme Court says. How dare those of us who have been born deny that privilege to others.
Hitler decreed that Jews were sub-human and the US Supreme Court has said the unborn are sub-human. Abortion is no less evil and no less murder than Hitler’s gassing of Jews.
However, amazing grace earned for us on the cross is available to those who have taken part in murdering their own children, but only to those who are willing to admit they committed a grave sin and turn to Christ for forgiveness. Those who make excuses don’t need Him.
I can assure the author of this article that the protester hasn’t taken the content of his signs lightly. I would bet that he would be honored to help mothers in difficult circumstances, and would experience great joy if a woman with murder in her heart turned to Christ. True Christians are the least self-righteous of all, because we know that any righteousness we have is a gift from God. We know that apart from Christ we are no different than the worst sinners. But we must stand up for the unborn and warn those who would murder children that the lake of fire awaits them.
This post covers a couple of different signs. Here’s #1:
Feed your faith and your doubt will starve.
Books inform us. The Bible transforms us.
I like both of those signs.
The sign says:
Be an organ donor. Give your heart to Jesus.
This could only be considered an evangelistic message to unbelievers. Christians have already “given their heart to Jesus.”
The problems abound. There isn’t anywhere that the Bible says something like “give your heart to Jesus.” Jesus said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me” (Matt. 16:24). Surely it’s not hard to see that taking up one’s cross is a whole different level of commitment than giving one’s heart.
The other problem is that since this is meant for unbelievers, is it adequately clear what this sign is talking about? Would an unbeliever driving by understand that they’re a sinner deserving of hell, and that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead, and they’re commanded to repent and believe the gospel? I don’t see how.
It seems to me it’s making light of the whole idea of Christianity. The main goal behind this sign isn’t to convey biblical truth, but to make little girls giggle and old ladies feel warm and fuzzy.
Christianity is the truth. People are going to hell. Our culture is rotting. Can’t we take this more seriously?
I plan on making this a routine posting. The Southern Baptist church near my house posts a saying on their sign and changes it every few days or weeks. Currently the sign says:
Exercise daily this year spiritual talk with God.
In case you think this is a mis-statement, it is on both sides of the sign. If anyone has a translation into English I’d love to hear it.
Last week it said:
Exercise daily this year. Walk with God.
Which is perfectly understandable. My question would be whether this is a good reminder for Christians, or is it making light of how we are commanded to offer ourselves as living sacrifices.
Before Christmas, the sign said:
Jesus loves you snow much.
I’m opposed to this statement for two reasons. It is too cavalier, and conveying a message that is contrary to the furtherance of the gospel. If someone is not a Christian, I think Christ loves them in a certain sense, as He is giving them good food and oxygen, etc. But if someone isn’t a Christian, God’s wrath abides on them (John 3:36). They’re children of the devil, and telling them that Jesus loves them isn’t helping them see these truths. They may not be able to see the gravity of their sin against a holy God, and they won’t have a proper understanding of the cross.
How’s this for exposing hypocrisy?
The person who posted the video below, put this in the video description:
For some reason the bureaucrats running City “government” have allowed these anti choicers to broadcast an offensive looped video over and over again at Powell and Market in San Francisco, “enhanced” by hideous, blaring music!
Obviously, the guy doesn’t care about freedom of speech or comprehend that even offensive speech should be protected. What he finds unoffensive, I’m sure I would dislike strongly, and the government doesn’t have the right to censor him. He doesn’t comprehend that that freedom goes both ways.
Furthermore, he’s pro-choice, and I don’t know how he justifies that, but if it is a legal procedure, why would pictures of the results be offensive?
While my comments are true, this youtube commenter really knocks it out of the park with this pithy little comment:
Jon Swerens said,
So, “pro-choice” means that your opponents aren’t allowed to speak publicly? And you call THEM “anti-choice”? Clever!
Here’s the video if you care to see it. There is a lot of cussing from the pro-choice people, so be warned.
