A Population Parallel - Wake UP, MISSOURI! The Abortion Holocaust is Greater Than We Think.

Do we really understand the extent of the murders by abortion?

Over three thousand babies are murdered EVERY DAY in our nation.  

I want to try to hit that number home, by making "Population Parallels", using cities and towns in the "Show Me" State.  



Picture the murder of the born population of Buckner (3,076) happening EVERY DAY!


Or more than that of the combined citizens of Amsterdam (242), Truesdale (732), Grant City (859), Mineral Point (351), and Sheldon (543) EVERY DAY.

The populations of Peculiar (4,608) and Oregon (857) EVERY 2 DAYS!

The population of Pleasant Hill (8,113) EVERY 3 DAYS!

The populations of Carl Junction (7,445) and Carthage (14,378) EVERY WEEK!

The population of Jefferson City (43,079) EVERY TWO WEEKS!

The population of Lee's Summit (91,364) EVERY MONTH! 

Think of it---the current amount of children that are brutally sacrificed to the god of Self in our country is like having the populations of 
Kirkwood (27,540), 
Chesterfield (47,484), 
Neosho (11,835), and 
Concordia (2,450) murdered in ONE MONTH.

And then the populations of 
Hannibal (17,916),
Joplin (50,150),
Maryville (11,972), and
Chillicothe (9,515) the NEXT MONTH.

Followed by the murder of the populations of 
Blue Springs (52,575),
Grandview (24,475), and 
Grain Valley (12,854) the THIRD MONTH.

And the murder of the populations of 
Liberty (29,149),
North Kansas City (4,208), and
Gladstone (25,410), with
Belton (23,116) and Harrisonville (10,019) thrown in the the FOURTH MONTH.

If the first month was January, that would still leave enough time to kill off the populations of 
Kansas City (459,787), 
St. Joseph (76,780), 
Raytown (29,526), 
Webb City (10,996)
and Columbia (108,500) BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR!

And the NEXT YEAR, 
St. Louis (319,204),
Independence (116,130),
and Springfield (159,498) could be totally gone BY JULY.

And that is just the number of reported abortions.

If the murders of the preborn across our nation were actually murders of the born in the state of Missouri, the ENTIRE STATE POPULATION (5,988,927 people) would be gone in 6 short years.  
The "Show Me" State COMPLETELY empty.

And that is just the number of reported abortions.

Wake UP, citizens of Missouri!!!  
The Abortion Holocaust is Greater Than You Think.

If this seems horrific to you, imagine the indignation of the all knowing God of heaven, 
Who is HOLY, HOLY, HOLY!
Who has made these precious babies in His image!
Who declares them to be His heritage and a blessing!
Who sees their slaughter in the secret places! 
Who hears the cry of their innocent blood!
Who commands US to open OUR mouths for those who have no voice, for those who are being slaughtered!
Who commands US to warn the wicked and rescue the weak!
Who will bring judgment to a people that allows the shedding of innocent blood to happen in their communities without seeking justice!

Leviticus 20:1-5
:1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"
:2 "Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones."
:3 "And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name."
:4 "And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:"
:5 "Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people."

WAKE UP, MISSOURI!  WAKE UP, CHURCH!

Let us NOT hide our eyes!
Let us NOT be silent NOR absent when they are being slain!
Let us plead for justice and call for truth!

May our communities awaken and repent of our apathy toward culture of child sacrifice that is murdering our neighbors!

If this post agitates your conscience, and you desire to do something practical to oppose the evil slaughter done to your preborn neighbors who are murdered at the rate of TWO EVERY MINUTE, please contact me.

Abortion must be abolished.  

The citizens of Missouri need to rise up and establish justice and equity,           no matter what the rest of the nation does.

Frederick Douglass, Abolitionist



Today marks two hundred and one years since the birth of Frederick Douglass, a runaway slave, who became an abolitionist, orator, author, editor, statesman, and preacher of the Gospel (as well as becoming the most photographed American of the 19th century).  This bold Christian man became renowned as the "Lion of Abolition."

The following are some quotes of his, which I believe may be beneficial to those seeking to abolish the evil of child sacrifice in our day.  Every age has its evils.  Every age has its abolitionists.  Let us reflect on his words.  

On Prayer & Action - “I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs.”

On the REAL Problem, or Question - “There is no negro problem.  The problem is whether the American people have loyalty enough, honor enough, patriotism enough to live up to their own Constitution.”

On Free Speech  - “To suppress free speech is a double wrong.  It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker.”

On the effect upon his life after his Salvation - “I loved all mankind, slaveholders included, though I hated slavery more than ever.”

On true Christianity - “I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ; I therefore hate the corrupt, slave-holding, women whipping, cradle plundering, partial and hypocritical Christianity of this land.”

On Being a Nation's True Friend - “I am one of those who think the best friend of a nation is he who most faithfully rebukes her for her sins – and he, her worst enemy, who, under the specious and popular garb of patriotism seeks to excuse, palliate, and defend them.” April 15, 1846




On Reactions to Shining Light on Wrong  - “Men do not love those who remind them of their sins.”

On National Security - “The life of the nation is secure only while the nation is honest, truthful, and virtuous.”

On Justice and Peace in Society - "Where there is no justice, there is no peace."

On Demanding Justice - “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.  Power concedes nothing without a demand.  It never did and it never will.  Without a struggle, there can be no progress.  It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder.  We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake.”

On Agitation - “Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground.”

On the Fear of Man - “I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.”

On Tolerance and Tyranny - “Find out what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.”

On Standing Alone - “One and God make a majority.”



On his One Political Idea - "I have one great political idea...That idea is an old one.  It is widely and generally assented to; nevertheless, it is very generally trampled upon and disregarded.  The best expression of it, I have found in the Bible.  It is in substance, 'Righteousness exalteth a nation; sin is a reproach to any people' [Proverbs 14:34]...This constitutes my politics -- the negative and positive of my politics, and the whole of my politics...I feel it my duty to do all in my power to infuse this idea into the public mind, that it may speedily be recognized and practiced upon by our people."

O, FOR CHRISTIANS TO AWAKEN TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, FIRED WITH ZEAL FROM FAITH IN THE SCRIPTURES, AND CONSTRAINED BY THE LOVE OF CHRIST!

O, FOR HEROES TO RISE TODAY, AND SPEAK WITH THE FACES OF LIONS!

Abortion must be abolished.

IGNORE ROE - DEFY ROE: The Time to do Justly is Always NOW

LET IT BE UNDERSTOOD...

Roe v Wade was an unrighteous decree, an iniquitous opinion, which perverted justice and equity,
violating the Constitution and the Higher Law of God.  It must be DEFIED and IGNORED.

Consider the following illustration:

If the Supreme Court gave an opinion today that since 10 years olds have not gone through puberty, and thus are not fully developed human beings, ESPECIALLY if they are still living inside own's home, dependent upon one, THEY MAY BE ABORTED...

It would be the DUTY of every state, governor, legislator, every lesser magistrate, to defy such an egregious opinion.  They would have to say,
    "That is murder.  That is evil and unjust.  The Supreme Court has NO authority to say that murder is okay.  We refuse to permit and protect murder in our jurisdiction.  Instead, we will provide equal protection for our people here from being murdered.  We DEFY that opinion, and will IGNORE it."

It should not have to be said here that
PREBIRTH MURDER IS JUST AS WRONG AS PREPUBERTY MURDER.

But the states failed to do this when Roe was handed down, when the Supreme Court gave THAT arbitrary and egregious opinion.  Our magistrates and our society capitulated and allowed murder in our midst.

We suffered child sacrifice to flourish, and over 61 million children have suffered slaughter under "color of law".

We are become ageists.  To allow for the murder of someone because they are
-not a certain age yet
-not fully developed
-not as independent as you
-are living in a particular locale
-don't look like you
is WICKEDNESS.  That is AGEISM.

And WE allowed it.
Americas allowed it.
Christians in America allowed it.
Churches allowed it.
Blood is on our hands (Isaiah 1,59; Ezekiel 3,33,22)

WE were SILENT when children were butchered.
WE were ABSENT from the battlefield for truth.
WE were NEGLIGENT in our duty as neighbors.
WE were DISOBEDIENT to God.

And even when we fought, even as we thought ourselves the champions of the preborn, WE often did not do so in a wholly JUST manner.

WE became guilty of
COMPROMISE
COMPLICITY
COWARDICE
COMPLACENCY

WE were deceived and believed lies.

WE became culpable with this holocaust before a holy God.  And I am speaking of prolifers here.

We didn't bring the TRUTH into full conflict with this work of darkness.  We made war with injustice and ageism, using unjust and ageist means.

We called on legislators to make laws that permitted Murder:
IF it happened before the baby was a certain age.
IF the baby had a criminal for a father (as in rape).
IF the baby's teenage mama had parental permission.
IF she had thought about it for 24 hours.
IF she was informed that her baby was alive.
IF it was not done with taxpayer money.

We did this.  We were taught to do this.  And we did this thinking we were standing for LIFE and TRUTH.  But we were doing WRONG.

Now, not everything we did was wrong,
but what was wrong, WAS WRONG, and WE MUST RECOGNIZE AND RECKON WITH IT.

We must humbly REPENT.  As individuals, as churches, as communities, as states, as a nation.  Let us confess it before the Lord and do RIGHT.

WE NEED to cease to do evil and learn to do well.

WE NEED to stop following the multitude (including the Prolife multitude) to do evil and wrest judgment from the weak and the innocent.

WE NEED to call for justice and plead for truth.

WE NEED to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.

WE NEED prod our leaders to do justly and establish equity.  They must be what they didn't at the start.  The time to "do justly" is always NOW.

As Wesley Thomas says, "The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being."

Don't DIEFY the Supreme Court,  DEFY Roe v Wade

IGNORE ROE.
DEFY ROE.

Abortion must be ABOLISHED.

No Room for Mentioning Abortion When Preaching Through Daniel Nine...Excuse ME?

A friend of mine on Facebook made a post the other day that expressed the opinion that if a pastor really cared for the preborn, he would find a way to talk about abortion in his church every week. 

This brought on a whole slough of responses, one of which caught my eye.

The comment stated:  "Not if he is an expository preacher.  I preached from Daniel 9 today and didn't mention abortion.  Don't plan to mention it next week either."

It greatly bothered me that this pastor replied so pathetically (due to the fact that we know at least 3500 preborn babies ARE murdered daily in this nation by the under the color of law but no one's gonna guilt him into bringing it up to his congregation) and flippantly (as if abortion really isn't homicide in the worst degree or that preborn babies have any more value then the toddlers being taught in his Children's Church) to arrogantly state that  Daniel 9 lent itself in any way to talking about the sin of abortion.

I happen to love the ninth chapter of Daniel (and specifically the prayer of Daniel it contains) with a passion, and I could not help but make the following comment:

"Daniel 9?  This Daniel 9?"

3 "And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:" 
4 "And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;" 
5 "We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:" 
6 "Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land." 
7 "O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee." 
8 "O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee." 
9 "To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;" 
10 "Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets." 
11 "Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him." 12 "And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem." 
13 "As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth." 
14 "Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice." 
15 "And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly." 
16 "O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us." 
17 "Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord's sake." 
18 "O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies." 
19 "O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name." 
20 "And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God;"

"So, you are saying that when Daniel was seeking God's face in prayer, 

When he laid out and confessed the sins of his people

When he acknowledged God's just judgment upon for their iniquities (the most grievous among them having be child sacrifice and the shedding of innocent blood),

When he beseeched God's mercy,

The horrific act of abortion, our Nation's holocaust of the greatest proportion, did not enter your mind?

There is much parallel to our own society:

Our sin as a people, including the massive slaughter of our children, far outnumbering the bloodshed of King Manasseh, which precipitated the Captivity, and the justice of God and the need for God's people to seek His face in repentance?

This would seem a most opportune moment in the book of Daniel to bring up abortion."

Then I finished up my comment...

"We must also must consider the brother in Christ who made the original post didn't say that a pastor had to mention abortion the sermon.  He said "in church".  I would assume that he meant during the service somewhere, in the sermon, yes, 

OR in announcements...  
  perhaps inviting the body to join him at the local abortion mill to preach and plead, or to the streets for public engagement, to bring the Gospel into conflict with the culture that tolerates baby murder and engage for truth in that venue,

OR during a testimony time to thank the Lord for the "save last week of a mother who turned from the killing of her child",

OR in prayer for the turning of our nation's leaders to establish justice and equity for the preborn as well as the born, for the parents who are scheduled to murder the children to hear the truth and repent, not only turning from abortion, but turning to the Saviour." 

The truth of God must be proclaimed.  Abortion must be abolished.

20 Reasons Why the 20 Week Abortion Ban is Not Good

I cannot celebrate the 20 week abortion ban because I love my neighbor.  The Bible describes true agape love (called charity) in "the Love Chapter", saying, "Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth" (I Corinthians 13:6).

20 REASONS why the ban is bad.

1. It is ageist in nature. Judging an individual, less human, and less worthy of protection based on their age, size, level of development, location, etc.  Ageism is judging "according to appearance" violating Christ's command: "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24).  Ageism is evil.  It must be repented of and forsaken.

2. It is completely arbitrary, moved by personal whim rather than truth.  We know (Biblically, scientifically, medically) that a human's life begins at conception.  To say "We will only protect you from murder once you can feel pain" is just as subjectively arbitrary as "once you pass puberty", "once you can vote", or "once you come out of your mother's body".  If we should be happy that at least some humans will be protected, then why don't we celebrate Roe v. Wade?  Roe protects humans once they're born.  Fighting arbitrariness in an arbitrary way is ridiculous.  

3. It causes unequal treatment of humans.  The law should establish equity, equal just and protection for all.  The famous statue "Justice" is pictured with a blindfold, not favoring a side in the case based on who the players are.  In the Law (see Exodus 23:1-9 for example), God warned to avoid respect of persons in judgment. The all wise God declared "It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment" (Proverbs 24:23).  The prophets decried the lack of equity in their day: 

"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." (Isaiah 59:14).

"Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity." (Micah 3:9).  
Pro-Life leaders should heed this warning.  This ban establishes inequity, NOT equity.  And inequity IS iniquity.

4. It undermines what we profess to believe.  If someone says that they believe that humans begin at conception and that abortion is a wrongful killing of said human, yet says that you can kill that human at any point after conception, they have exposed themselves as inconsistent and hypocritical.  And the world sees through it.  

5. It is ineffective, and won't save the babies like the Pro-life public thinks it will.  Over 90% of abortions are committed before 12 weeks.  Only 1.2-1.3% of abortions occur after 20 weeks.  This ban, so hailed by the Pro-Life community abandons more than 98% of preborn victims to murder.   

6. Even the babies it claims to protect (those after 20 weeks) are not safe.  It has exceptions of rape, incest, and life of the mother.  None of these exceptions are just reasons to murder an innocent person (I have dealt with these in other posts, which can be found and read).  The awful truth is that nearly all Pro-Life politicians, including President Donald Trump, will make exceptions for murder.  So if a woman is past 20 weeks, and wants an abortion, she can just claim she was raped, or get a physician to say it could endanger her life, and the baby can still be slain.

7. It educates the public erroneously.  Laws inform the public.  People will just murder their child earlier, believing that it is okay because the children can't feel pain yet.  I have heard it from the lips of aborting parents.  "The government says it is okay."  "My baby can't feel pain yet."  Where do they gain such a pompous arrogance as they walk inside to kill their baby?  From the Pro-life movement and their educational bills.  The same is true with heartbeat legislation.

By the way, is murder wrong because it is painful?  Should we make it legal to kill your wife while she's asleep so she doesn't feel the pain?  Should the Mafia get away with killing as long as they use chloroform first?  GOD FORBID.  Let's teach the right thing by our laws.

8. It entrenches the lie that abortion is a constitutional right.  The ban does not contradict the declaration of the Supreme Court about the idea that abortion being constitutional.  They are in effect telling the public, "Your right to abortion is recognized. You can still end your baby's life, just do it sooner.  However, the FACT is that the right to murder human beings is NOT in the U.S. Constitution.  Our founding documents actually proclaim that life is an inalienable right, given by God.  The Constitution was made to "secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity".  That posterity is talking about our children.  Murdering babies is not a right - It is a wrong.

9. It acts as though Roe v. Wade is legitimate law.  Courts do not make laws.  The Constitution is the supreme law of the land.  When a court gives an opinion that violates the Constitution (and the Higher Law of God), they are outside of their authority and it is the duty of the other branches of government and lesser magistrates to defy them, not capitulate to them and work within their parameters.  If they said that children under 10 years of age, who had not gone through puberty to fully developed humans, are not protected under law and can be aborted, the executive branch, the legislative branch, and every state would have the duty to defy that opinion and not permit the murder of children in their jurisdiction.  If we would defy the Supreme Court to protect 9 year olds, and not 19 weekers in the womb, it is only because we are become ageist, and must repent (see Reason #1).

10. It snatches justice from the afflicted.  The most vulnerable are denied protection.
"Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:" (Exodus 23:2).

"Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous" (Deuteronomy 16:19).


"Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause" (Exodus 23:6).  Those who follow the crowd in this 20 week ban, neglecting the protection of those being slain, are violating Exodus 23:2 outright.  Let us consider our ways.

11. It protects the murderers as long as they kill sooner.  An abortionist can still murder, as long as his victims are younger, more vulnerable.  Remember, over 98% are already being murdered before 20 weeks.  This is assuming that murderers who have forsaken the Hypocratic Oath for the Hypocritic Oath can be trusted to not lie about how old the baby was in records.  Moreover, don't forget the exceptions.

12. It does NOT allow for prosecution of those who would hire the assassin. 
This is folly.  Parents who procure an abortion are protagonists in the crime.  If someone instigates a murder by seeking out and paying a hitman to slay an innocent person, they are also guilty.  This idea of letting the one who buys the hit off would not be countenanced anywhere else BUT in the case of abortion.  It is the fruit of the Pro-life practice of making women out to be a victim in the situation.  The victim is the child.  This again is INEQUITY.

13. It doesn't call abortion "Murder", nor treat it as such.  It follows the pattern of every one of the hundreds of other federal and state Pro-life bills that have passed in these United States that neglected this truth.

14. It treats even the murder of the children past 20 weeks as NOT MURDER.  The abortionist who kills a preborn child after that point, could face a fine, or up to five years in prison, or both.  That is far less than the average sentence for homicide in the first degree of born persons.  

15. It is a smokescreen, distracting from the fact that they are not doing their duty.  They have the authority and obligation to establish equity for those under their jurisdiction by law, to punish evildoers and protect the innocent.  "Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place" (Jeremiah 22:3).  This bill does not accomplish their duty before God and man, but it does make it look like that they are doing something.

16. It paints the pro-life legislators as champions, while they are actually treacherous.  Cheers go up for the heroes who faced the dragon.  But what if the heroes just went up and made a deal with the dragon to only slay some girls from the village?  Or only a few at a time?  At least it won't eat all the children, as far as we know, right?  They are champions, right?  Wrong.  The champions are the ones going who actually are taking up the cause of the ones they say they are representing.  Heroes go to take the dragon DOWN.  

NOW, I hasten to say that there is no doubt in my mind that many legislators, many workers in Pro-life organizations, many supporters of this ban BELIEVE they are doing right.  They have been taught to do it this way, and have not really examined this endeavor in the light of Truth.  But it is still wrong to do wrong! And we all must be confronted with the error.  We all need to hear the truth, be exposed to the horror of this, search the Scriptures, consider our ways, and repent.  We need to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.  Opposing injustice unjustly is not just.  We need to be shown where we're wrong and how to oppose this evil in the right way.  

We need to recognize that in spite of our Pro-life stickers and high sounding religious and political zeal, and prayers to God to bless our efforts, our hands are "full of blood".  We need to hearken to the LORD: "Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil, Learn to do well: seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow..." (Isaiah 1).  

We need to forsake the foolish and live!  Let us exhort each other and our leaders to be true champions of the weakest among us!  Pro-life congressmen and senators are putting bills out that they are told the people are demanding.  Let them hear the demand for total and immediate abolition of abortion! 

17. It gives voters and supporters a false sense of peace and hope.  Millions of Pro-lifers, including multitudes of Christians hear of this ban and rejoice, not realizing all the ramifications.  They think, "Wow!  We're doing something!  We're winning!"  and they keeping supporting unrighteous decrees and voting for those who compromise and collaborate with the holocaust of their neighbors, all the while, thinking they are opposing this evil the right way.  It is a perfect example of the verse, "For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace" (Jeremiah 8:11).  It lulls us to continue the trend of trimming the tree, rather than wake up to the truth and take the axe to the root.  It keeps us from unfeigned love, from righteous action, from actual victory.

18. It fails to acknowledge the abortion holocaust and our guilt.  Far from humbly confessing the slaughter of over 60 million American children, it perpetuates the ghastly killing under color of law, under the guise of being caring and compassionate about the pain of victims.

19. It fails to be repentant.  Deciding to only kill younger babies is not humbly confessing our sin, and turning to God in repentance, seeking mercy for ourselves and healing for our land.  "Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?" (Psalm 94:20).  Should we expect God to bless us while we continue to cast His law behind our backs?  Let us humble ourselves, and pray, and seek His face, and TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS, including the way of perverting the justice of the most innocent and most vulnerable in our land--the preborn, whose murders after this ban, if it ever is signed into law, will continue to be the number one cause of death in America.

20. It keeps abortion safe---from ABOLITION.  This does not secure the safety of the innocent.  It secures the prolonging of the bloodshed.     

The things this 20 week ban does do effectively is:

A. Give Pro-life organizations something to cheer over and garner support for more like actions.

B. Give Pro-life government leaders a 100% Pro-Life voting record and future votes. 

C. Give Pro-life people the illusion that the fight is being won and keep them content to continue giving and voting for the same.  We need to repent and abolish abortion.

I know many will say, "You are just not happy because it isn't doing enough".
That is not the issue.  It is not about doing enough.  It is about doing what is RIGHT.

Others will make a plea towards pragmatism.  But, we need to choose to be found OBEDIENT to our King Jesus.  "Duty is ours.  Results are God's."  Why should God bless wicked measures and iniquitous decrees?  Let us trust the Lord.  God's work done God's way will work.

Finally, someone will say, "But if we didn't have these bills, if we didn't regulate abortion, there would be no protection at all for babies in the womb.  What would we have if we didn't have the Pro-life organizations, lobbyists, and lawmakers pushing for such bills?"

One answer the above argument? We MIGHT have what France, Germany, Russia, and many other nations have.  Those  secular humanist governments only allow abortion up to 12 weeks.  What fools we are, to think that we are so conservative in this!  The preborn have more "protection" under those God hating governments than in the most Pro-life states in our land.

OR...

We MIGHT have Christians actually repenting of their apathy and compromise and rising up to love their preborn neighbors themselves instead of trusting and paying someone else to do it for them.  We might have Christians going to the gates of death in droves, to stand and plead for lives and warning the wicked and rescuing the weak.  We might have Christians engaging with our society, in the church assembly, in the public square, and on social media bringing the Gospel into conflict with the culture of child sacrifice.  We might have God's people spreading the truth, seeding the land with literature, etc. about the holocaust and the need for abolition.  We might have a flood of voters swelling with a voice as strong as thunder demanding the END OF ABORTION, the ABOLITION OF HUMAN ABORTION.  The Lord knows.  

Again, "Duty is ours.  Results are God's." 

Abortion MUST be ABOLISHED.

Inequity is Iniquity—The Problem of Regulationism

Some may wonder why abolitionists are so opposed to the regulation of abortion.  

As Christians, we unashamedly call for repentance and abolition of government permission and protection for the murder of the weakest of our neighbors.


We call out the wrongness of making bills that dictate that:

abortion mills must be clean, have wider halls, etc.
abortive mothers must wait 24 hours, have parental permission if minors, etc.
—abortionists must be licensed, cannot kill after some arbitrary age of the child, etc.

Some think that we are against it because it is JUST NOT ENOUGH.


The reality is that we are against it because it IS NOT JUST.


The incremental and regulatory treatment of this horrific holocaust fails to establish equity for the preborn.


Some abolitionists have coined the expression, "Inequity is Iniquity."


This is a true statement!  


We live in a culture of great iniquity, in which even Christians who are seeking to oppose the evil of abortion are doing so using inequity.


I hope this post may shed some light and awaken my brothers and sisters who may not have thought it through.


FIRST and (I hope) obvious.  Not only is abortion iniquity, but unjustly opposing abortion is also iniquity.

For instance, if someone says that the baby in the womb is not a human or we should regulate their murder (treating homicide as healthcare) rather than call for immediate repentance and abolition, they are in favor of allowing for a child to be murdered at ANY arbitrary point, or IN CERTAIN EXCEPTIONAL CASES. 


They are, in word and deed, bearing false witness against their neighbor. They are sinning. 


Iniquity is a word we generally use for sin.


SECOND, the definition of equity is "justice, right, having impartiality, being equal." To be equitous is to be impartial when distributing justice.  


Demanding equity is calling for equal protection and justice for all human beings, without respect of persons.


Please consider seriously...


That the LORD Himself is equitous: "Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the world in righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity" (Psalm 98:9).


And that God commands that we not support any perversion of justice and equity, (i.e. even if the pro-life movement tells us it is a good idea):  "Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: Neither shalt thou countenance a poor many in his cause...Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.  Keep thou far from a false matter; and the innocent and the righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked" (Exodus 23:2-3,6-7).


We should never be partial in dealing with people
giving favor because of their station or financial status, or based on their ethnicity, age, level of development, present location, state of dependency, or whether they look like us yet.  We are to live with equity.  

When we stray from what is just, from that which establishes equity, no matter what we say in rationale, our actions become a deviation from true righteous judgment
it becomes a judgment of appearance, rather than reality.

Jesus said: "Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24).


It displeases the Judge of all the earth when men do not act according to truth, justice, and equity:


"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter...and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment" (Isaiah 59:14-15).


In James, we find the following exhortation concerning treating people with inequity: "My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons...Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?...if ye fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself', ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors" (James 2:1-9).


The word avon, often translated as iniquity in the Old Testament, means "perversity, to crook away, to turn from righteousness.  This carries the concept found in Isaiah 53 of "going one's way."


"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every on to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all" (Isaiah 53:6).


The root of sin is selfishness.  Choosing our own way over God's.  Thus iniquity can be used to describe that which may be REPULSIVE to society like rape or slavery, or that which may be RESPECTABLE to society, such as cleaving to Mormonism, Islam, Catholicism, etc. for salvation rather than in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  


Iniquity can be ascribed to whenever one departs from God's commandment to do what is right in their own eyes.  People who seek to "heal the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace" are NOT doing righteously according to God (Jeremiah 8:11).


Even if we FEEL that we are doing some good, 

following the experts, 
being pragmatic, 
or obeying God and trusting Him, 
it is UNJUST, thus INEQUITY.

As one young abolitionist said recently,


"Christians shouldn't support regulating murder.  They should support ending it.  The movement needs to be to end it, not celebrate with compromises.  Continual compromising has been going on for 40 and won't end it.  Pro-life laws value one age and circumstance or another.  Pro-life laws, while they do save a few lives, are unjust laws."


Inequity is Iniquity.  


To promote any pro-life regulatory law is iniquity
and it should never be celebrated.  We are to have charity (agape love) towards our neighbors, and according to the "love chapter", charity "Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth" (I Corinthians 13:6).

THIRD and finally, consider the etymology of both words.


Equity: L. oequitas, from oequus, equal, even, level.


Iniquity: L. iniquitas; in and oequitas (which is THE SAME WORD AS ABOVE).


"Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal.  Hear now, O house of Israel; Is my way equal? are not your ways unequal?" (Ezekiel 18:25).


Iniquity, at its root, means not equal
—not just—not lining up with God's word, His character, and His way.

Inequity IS Iniquity.


Equity and Justice must be established.  


We need to:

1. Treat the preborn like who they are (image bearers of God).
2. Treat abortion like what it is (murder).
3. Treat Roe v. Wade like what it is (a perverted opinion). 

Abortion must be abolished.

Using Images of Abortion Victims - Why? Three Basic Reasons

Some have asked about the use of graphic signs (more properly termed victim images) practiced by many abolitionists and other Christians who oppose preborn murder (abortion).

Why do I use victim images?

There are at least three basic reasons why.

1. It follows God's pattern.  Often when God sent His prophets with a message, He gave them an illustration, object, etc, to show to get attention and preach about.  Nathan, Jeremiah, Jesus, Paul, and many others utlilized this method.  

I think the one who may have done it the most was Ezekiel.  God had Ezekiel do some crazy things to pound the message home...
-shave both head and beard,
-cook his food with manure,
-shake and quake why he ate,
-break in an loot his own house,
-NOT mourn when his beloved wife died...get the picture?

God told him in one place to specifically show the city the bloody abomination with the gates: "...wilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations" (Ezekiel 22:2).

I am simply following that instruction.  Many cities (and the nation) have baby butcher shops.  We have slaughtered over 60 million.  We have filled the land from one end to another with innocent blood.  But yet our country and people claim that there is nothing wrong pictures of babies that have wrong.  Christians continue to think that God will bless our nation.  The world wants to keep this hidden.  But "hands that shed innocent blood" are ABOMINATION to God (Proverbs 6:16-17).  So I use pictures of babies that have been murdered to shew the city "her abominations".  This is some our society needs to face.

 "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins" (Isaiah 58:1).

Therefore, I show these pictures to soberly expose the preborn holocaust, to bring light to the dark deeds which the world wants to keep hidden.

2. It is effectual.  The impact of such an image is powerful.  Notice that I did not say pragmatic.  Let's consider the following 3 reasons that this practice is effectual. 
   A. It CHALLENGES people to face the facts.  This was a baby, not a blob of tissue.  He/she had little ears, a nose, cute little fingers, toes, eyelashes.
This is why the pro-choice crowd fight against allowing these pictures into the controversy. What reason would they have?  For the exact reason that Holocaust deniers fight against allowing pictures from the death camps being allowed in the debate.  The picture proves them wrong.

   B. It CHANNELS the message quickly.  People driving by may not be able to read all the words of some signs, but one look at the picture of an aborted baby WILL get the message across immediately.  They know what we're talking about.  A picture is worth a thousands years.

It puts me in mind of not long ago when some young people and I went out to agitate at an intersection in Wichita.  A woman passenger looked out the closed window, and saw the signs as her vehicle came alongside.  The teens holding the signs could see her disgusted look and saw her mouth saying, "What is that?!" and then her eyes widened with horror, and she mouthed the words, "IT'S a BABY!"

   C. It can be used to CHANGE hearts.  
I have seen the shock of women who see what happens to the baby.
I have seen a father look at the posters and go back in the mill to rescue the mother and baby. 
I have seen mothers turn away from having an abortion, and tell me that it was the aborted baby picture that showed that the "thing" inside her womb was a real child.  
I have seen a woman who was just driving by, see the pictures, and pull over to sit and weep uncontrollably for the children.
I have met a medical doctor who in the past had openly supported the abortion cause.  His own wife had had an abortion.  They believed the lies of the "establishment".  But when saw the pictures of the babies that were aborted, it transformed his thinking. In fact, when I met him, he was standing outside an abortion mill, calling out to women,  and lifting the sign of an aborted baby above his head.  May the Lord turn the hearts of the fathers to the children (Malachi 4:6). 

So I call out to people, "Does this picture not horrify you?  Are you not grieved?  Let us be stirred to stop any more babies from having to suffer this child's fate.  'Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?"  Babies are being butchered for a price.  What will you do to stop this?  Remember this picture when you are drinking your coffee! When you are talking with your friends! When you are standing in the voting booth!  And remember that they are being destroyed on your watch!  If you do nothing to protect them, their blood is on your hands!"

3. It is Just.  Those aborted humans have the right to face their accusers.  In our nation, it is recognized that no one is to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without "due process of law."  It must be proven that they are guilty of a crime worthy of capitol punishment.  

The Bill of Rights justly guarantees Americans a broad range of rights.  This includes the right to face one's accusers --- as the Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states, 
"In all criminal prosecutions the accused shall the enjoy the right...to be confronted with the witness against him."  

Yet these preborn infants are denied that right.  The right to a trial by jury!

The right to be assumed innocent until proven guilt!  The right to face their accusers!

They are guilty of no crime, yet they are executed in ways so cruel and painful, that we don't even execute serial killers and mass rapists in those ways!  "These things ought not so to be" (James 3:10).  God provided cities of refuge for manslayers to flee into until they could get a righteous trial (Joshua 20:9).  Even the Roman empire had this practice:

Acts 25:16 "To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him."

If manslayers should be protected in this manner, shouldn't innocent children?

Therefore, I show these pictures, that these babies may testify in the only way they can now That they are babies.  
That they were murdered.  
That thousands of others like them are being slain EVERY DAY!
That this killing must end.

Abortion MUST BE ABOLISHED.
