Pro Life Billboard Challenges Church Pastors
There have been a number of pro-life billboards pop up in Knoxville over the past couple of months. This is my favorite. It’s at the junction of I-40 and I-640 (west end), visible from eastbound I-40.
It is clear to us at CBR that the church has ample resources to stop abortion. Yet you’d be hardpressed to find more than one or two churches in Knoxville that initiate any pro-life activity.
Every year, “pro-life” churches in the Knoxville area spend multiple millions of dollars to improve the production value of our music on Sunday morning. These same churches spend only a few thousand dollars to stop abortion, barely enough to salve the conscience. We spend thousands of paid staff hours organizing hundreds of thousands of volunteer hours on elaborate music programming, but we spend almost zero staff hours organizing almost nothing to stop the killing.
I’ve searched the scriptures diligently, and I find no instance where God chastened His people because their music wasn’t good enough. Yet God judged His own chosen people (Israel) because they were killing their own children:
[Because the inhabitants of Jerusalem have worshiped false Gods and burned their children in the fire as offerings to Baal] … I will make them fall by the sword before their enemies … and I will give their carcasses as food to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth. … I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters [in the siege]. (Jeremiah 19: 4-9)
Even as 1 in 5 women who aborts her pregnancy identifies herself as an “evangelical” or “born-again” Christian (which means 1 in 5 men are also aborting their children), the church does little or nothing to stop the killing, even among their own members. If you want to stop the killing in your own church, check this out. Or this.
