I could try to wax eloquently about this topic, but I would be copying somebody else…like that is new. Mostly I plagiarize from the Bible…which is legal…and recommended if you are discussing a topic about God. BUT….this time, I want to point out a trap that we often fall in to. We have a position….as right as it may be, but we seldom have a reason why that doesn’t come across as an argument. And then it boils down to, “I’m right and you are wrong”….and not only are you wrong…you are evil to think that.
And then you go on your way feeling really justified about how wonderfully you defended God.
Today is the March for the Sanctity of Life. You will see signs that say, God hates this…and God hates that…but sadly, guys like me are ill-equipped to really explain why a fetus is a baby…and not a blog. I am going to direct you to Focus on the Family and their last two shows. This is a presentation by Scott Klusendorf called “Reaching Hearts on Abortion”, part 1 and Part 2.
Every Person in the world should hear this….but at LEAST every Christian. Scott is a Bio-Ethicist and presents THE MOST compelling defense of the pro-life position that I have ever seen.
Listen to it…and you will be blessed.
And be encouraged….you will sound really smart after you do. AND…if you can present this to ONE person and change their mind about Abortion…who knows how many lives that you will save. Remember how God thinks about you….
Psalm 139:13 – For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (NIV)
Grace and Peace, Dan
