They could have … but they didn’t
Great piece by Rolley Haggard over at BreakPoint takes a sober look at the modern Church’s response to abortion:
- The Question That Will Define Us: What Does Christianity Look Like in a Culture That Kills Its Children?
You remark to yourself that the Christians of this present generation could have spoken up, but they didn’t.
They could have regularly and passionately preached against this horrific evil, but they didn’t.
They could have prayed and marched and held vigils day and night, but they didn’t.
They could have voted and lobbied and advocated and cried aloud without ceasing, but they didn’t.
They could have written letters and held signs and stood outside abortion clinics day in and day out, but they didn’t.
They could have made it clear to their elected leaders, their neighbors, and perhaps most importantly to themselves, that here is an unspeakably great evil that cannot, that must not be tolerated. But they didn’t. By and large they didn’t.
And by their not doing what they could have done about this great evil, they committed an even greater evil, because they knew better than to let it happen and they let it happen anyway.
