So, if I were to stand up here and use the "N" word; would any of you have a problem with that?
What if I used a few derogatory female slurs; would that be o.k.?
No! Of course not!
We live in a world that is so Politically Correct that something like that would never be tolerated, and yet so Morally Bankrupt that other horrific acts against the unborn minority are a 'right' that we should fight for?
One of the first things that comes to my mind when I hear the word Oppression is Abortion.
The definition of Oppression is: the exercise of authority or power in a burdensome, cruel, or unjust manner; the act of subjugating by cruelty.
That sure sounds like abortion to me. Whether these precious babies are black, white, red, yellow, male or female, is not what makes them so susceptible to oppression. It's their lack of strength; their inability to fight for themselves; their need for nurturing and dependency on their mothers...all of the same inherent traits God gave us to bond us to our mothers, our society uses as an excuse to kill these human beings! We are telling God that WE will decide which instincts to embrace and WE decide which instincts to ignore!
I don't know about you, but I try not to tell the Divine Creator of the Universe how to do His job.
When I was 16 years old I became pregnant. And the world told to tell me that the only way I would ever achieve success in my life was to have an abortion. But I knew better, I knew better because my God had told me so. What the world labeled as a curse, He called a blessing.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. (HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL WITNESS THE CHOICE YOU MAKE!) Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
Did you know that while a female fetus is still growing in her mothers womb, at 6 gestational months, she develops the eggs that will someday help create that mother's grandchildren? There is far too much thought and masterful creation put into these babies for them not to be called Human Beings! Abortion does not only end one life, it puts a stop to the potential descendants that God tells us about here in Deuteronomy; the future generations that could cure AIDS, Cancer, and Famine. Let's not just run and fund raise for these things, let's give life to those who will cure them!
In 2005, Dallas County alone reported 211,183 abortions were performed. We are ranked 18th out of the 254 other counties in Texas. Eighteenth! I doubt many people know that; so what an amazing opportunity we have to get out there and activate our community!
As we go back out into the cold, callused world, remember, you are not just fighting the good fight against abortion, you are also fighting the good fight against moral injustice and wide spread oppression! The hour is upon us! And I truly believe God has been waiting in anticipation for this generation to proclaim His Truth; He has been waiting for you! You are the ones called to end this holocaust, to change the direction of YOUR generation! Stand up to Planned Parenthood and tell them:
WE WILL NOT BELIEVE YOUR LIES!
WE SEE THROUGH YOUR LAME ATTEMPT TO HAVE US KILL OUR YOUNG JUST TO LINE YOUR POCKETS!
AND YOU WILL NOT SILENCE OUR MESSAGE!
Before I leave I want to share a Psalm with y'all. To me this is a prayer that we should have locked away in our hearts, not just during 40 Days For Life, but as long as abortion is still legal.
Psalm 5 reads:
1 O Lord, hear me as I pray;
pay attention to my groaning.
2 Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God,
for I pray to no one but you.
3 Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord.
Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.
4 O God, you take no pleasure in wickedness;
you cannot tolerate the sins of the wicked.
5 Therefore, the proud may not stand in your presence,
for you hate all who do evil.
6 You will destroy those who tell lies.
The Lord detests murderers and deceivers.
7 Because of your unfailing love, I can enter your house;
I will worship at your Temple with deepest awe.
8 Lead me in the right path, O Lord,
or my enemies will conquer me.
Make your way plain for me to follow.
9 My enemies cannot speak a truthful word.
Their deepest desire is to destroy others.
Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave.
Their tongues are filled with flattery.
10 O God, declare them guilty.
Let them be caught in their own traps.
Drive them away because of their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them sing joyful praises forever.
Spread your protection over them,
that all who love your name may be filled with joy.
12 For you bless the godly, O Lord;
you surround them with your shield of love.
