I got an email the other day from Ray Comfort and his ministry Way of the Master reminding me of the 42nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that has allowed over 56 million babies to be murdered.
When I read it I was conscience-stricken. Why?
While living in L.A. I was very active in Pro-Life ministry on the campuses, at our local abortuary, handing out 180 Movies (www.180Movie.com), and even starting a class called “Abortion is About God: Reframing a Moral Issue” by John Piper, with the end-view of having a thriving Pro-Life activism ministry formed at my former church.
But then I was called to Texas to plant Hope Chapel Hill Country and my whole focus changed.
At the time that I moved here there were only six abortion clinics operating in the entire state due to anti-abortion legislation that was passed here. Since it’s appeal, there are now about 19. But my focus was on our church plant. When I got the email my heart was struck and I repented of my inaction.
Now, I’m back in the saddle.
I may not be active physically these days in front of the murder-mills, but I will renew my ministry of reminding: Abortion is murder, yet God forgives murderers through His Son, Jesus.
