Even in a pro-life church, only abortion video could save this baby
Only rarely do we get permission to show abortion video in a pro-life church. Even pro-life pastors are reluctant to accept the angst that goes along with making people uncomfortable about abortion. Even when we do get to show the video, we often have to fight for the priviledge. When we suggest babies lives are at stake, we are called “strident,” “pushy” etc.
But we are often reminded later why we fought so hard. We just got word this week of another baby saved because we showed abortion video during a worship service. As reported earlier link here), CBR’s Executive Director Gregg Cunningham was able to show abortion video on a November Sunday morning at Calvary Chapel Pearl Harbor.
We just learned that at least one baby has already been saved as a result. The mother was not only pregnant that Sunday, she had actually scheduled an abortion for the following day. This mother had heard sermons against abortion, but had never actually seen abortion. Gregg had debated the pastor and his wife at some length to persuade them to allow him to show our “Choice Blues” video to the congregation. To their great credit, they finally withdrew their opposition.
When confronted with the truth, the mother became angry and stormed out of the service – but the pictures haunted her. She cancelled her abortion appointment and sought the church’s help instead. Had this pastor rejected Gregg’s pleas to show abortion video, this baby girl, just born, could easily have become another faceless, nameless statistic.
Please don’t withhold truth at your church. Here is how we showed truth at Calvary Chapel Pearl Harbor:
