Here’s the top ten lies I was told recently: 1. “All of my sins are forgiven.” 2. “I am a Christian.” 3. “God forgives. I’m okay.” 4. “I’m saved, and I go to church every Sunday.” 5. “The Bible says not to judge.” 6. “I’m praying for you, too.” 7. “So what? No sin is bigger than any other sin.” 8. “We’ll repent later.” 9. “I’m going to jail if you don’t shut up!” 10. “We’re fine. Our choice is between us and God.”
These statements were made to me while my family and I were evangelizing on the sidewalk in front of the last remaining surgical abortuary in Mississippi. They all came from mothers and fathers who were murdering their preborn children. Other lies were told: “It’s not a person yet.” “What I do doesn’t affect anybody else.”
Besides the lies they told, there were the lies they showed; Christian bumper stickers, cross jewelry, and rosaries worn around their necks.
Some of the lies were half-truths/half-lies. The guy who threatened me may go to jail someday, but he didn’t attack me and get arrested that day. The mother who proudly told me of her regular church attendance, may actually go to church every Sunday, but people who premeditate, and then actually murder, are not saved.
1 John 3:15 “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”
Bad doctrine, lack of accountability, or tokenism from pro-life churches, all add up to more murdered children. February is “hell month” for preborn Americans. The abundance of holiday parties at the end of the year are the primary cause for the murdering of so many children by surgery every February. It’s the busiest month for abortuaries.
Admist the lies and violence last week, we did see some saves. Sara and her husband changed their minds, talked to my wife, and went to the pregancy resource center in Jackson for help. Praise the Lord!
Most Mississippians claim to be Christians. Most of them claim to be pro-life, even the ones who murder their babies. Folks, when words lose their meaning, people lose their liberties and their lives. Let’s repent of apathy and trust Jesus to use us in ending the slaughtering of babies, and doing justice for them.
1 John 3:24 “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, but the Spirit which he hath given us.”
