Truth without love can be just as damaging as love without truth. Too often in the battle for life, we choose religion over relationship, and we slam the door shut to the only real answer for both the oppressed and the oppressor. Good thing we serve a God who can help us change this, if we’re willing to partner with Him.
Let us pause for a moment to remind ourselves of the critical, transformational truth at the very core of the battle we’re fighting, both broadly in the culture and in our own hearts and minds.
There’s an emerging battle on the horizon in which the pro-life Christian voice is almost completely silent. To engage and be ultimately victorious, we need to shift our strategies and set foot on solid ground. The future is here, folks, and it’s weird.
Star Parker’s congressional testimony on abortion’s devastation in the Black community, and Planned Parenthood’s tweets to oppose it, have ignited a firestorm in the abortion debate. But behind this heated battle is some critical history every pro-life activist needs to know—-a national conversation in the 1990s that both created and countered the idea that abortion is “good” for Black women.
Throughout history, abortion advocates have repeatedly used, twisted, and even fabricated tragic situations to embed death further into American law and culture. Yesterday, it was Jane Doe.
Because all of God’s design elements—life, marriage, family, sexuality, and gender—are perfectly and purposefully intertwined, they must be systematically dismantled. Much of this work has already been done. But the goal of the new sexual revolution raging around us today is to finish the job.
Every aspect of our culture today reinforces the idea that morality is not absolute. Instead of objectively measuring whether something is right or wrong, our culture’s answer is, “It depends.”
