A Population Parallel: Wake Up, State of Kansas! 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 Sunflower State.  



Picture the murder of the born population of Lindsborg (3,498),  happening EVERY DAY! Or more than that of the combined citizens of Elbing (229), Whitewater (718), Perry (929), New Strawn (394), and Olpe (546) EVERY DAY.

The population of Colby (5,387) EVERY 2 DAYS!

The population of Fort Scott (8,087) EVERY 3 DAYS!

The population of Hays (20,510) EVERY WEEK!

The population of Lawrence (87,643) 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 
Leawood (31,867), 
Lenexa (48,190), 
Rowland Park (6,731), and 
Mission Hills (3,498) murdered in ONE MONTH.

And then the populations of 
Basehor (4,613),
Lansing (11,265),
Leavenworth (35,251),
Tonganoxie (4,996)...
INDEED, the WHOLE population of Leavenworth County (76,227), plus the city of Merriam (11,003) the NEXT MONTH.

Followed by the murder of the populations of 
Manhattan (52,135),
Emporia (24,916), and 
Arkansas City (12,415) the THIRD MONTH.

And the murder of the populations of 
Junction City (23,353),
Dodge City (27,340), and
Garden City (26,658), with
Ottawa (12,649) thrown in the the FOURTH MONTH.

And the murder of the people of  
Newton (19,132), 
McPherson (13,155), 
Concordia (5,395), 
Abilene (6,844) 
DeSoto (5,720), 
Bonner Springs (7,308), 
Ellis (2,062), 
Hesston (3,709), 
Great Bend (15,995), 
Baxter Springs (4,238), 
Moundridge (1,737)
Mt. Hope (813),
and Ellsworth (3,120) the FIFTH MONTH.

If the first month was January, that would still leave enough time to kill off the populations of 
Wichita (382,368),
Kansas City (145,786), 
Hutchinson (42,080) 
and Salina (47,707) BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR!

If the murders of the preborn across our nation were actually murders of the born in the state of Kansas, the ENTIRE STATE POPULATION (2,853,118 people) would be gone in three years.  The Sunflower State COMPLETELY empty.

And that is just the number of reported abortions.

Wake UP, Kansas!  
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, KANSAS!  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.

A Population Parallel - Wake UP, Greater Kansas City! 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 towns in the Greater Kansas City Area.  




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

The population of Peculiar, MO (4,608) EVERY 2 DAYS!

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

The population of Prairie Village, KS (21,447) EVERY WEEK!

Think of it---the current amount of children that are brutally sacrificed to the god of Self in our country is like having the Kansas populations of 
Leawood (31,867), 
Lenexa (48,190),

Blue Springs (52,575),
Grandview (24,475), and 
Grain Valley (12,854) the THIRD MONTH.

And the murder of the Missouri 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 May, that would still leave enough time to kill off the populations of 
Kansas City, KS (145,786), 
St. Joseph, MO (76,780), 
Raytown, MO (29,526), 
and Lee's Summit, MO (91,364) BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR!

And that is just the number of reported abortions.

Wake UP, Greater Kansas City!

Speaking the Truth in Love May Be Hard at Times, But it is Not Complicated

Near the beginning of the year 2017, a meme appeared on social media, created by a prolife organization.

                                          

This sentiment is pervasive, both in the pro-life community and in the Christian community.  I have heard respected conservative politicians, pro-life leaders and famous preachers, saying either... 

that abortion should not be called murder, because that is insensitive, and we'll turn people away from our position, or

that abortion should not be treated like murder and mothers who pay a hitman to kill their preborn children should not be prosecuted. 

Essentiallythat it is not loving to call women who abort their children "murderers".  That it is too complicated a matter, that they are victims, that we must not be offensive. 

This has been going on for a long time, and has become an accepted dogma for almost the whole of society, both pro-life and pro-choice.

The problem?   

It.
Is.
Wrong.

"We are to speak the truth in love, but we must ALWAYS speak the truth."

As an abolitionist, I call abortion "murder" because it is murder, and because I know the God Who can forgive and save repentant murderers.

To not tell the truth, and leave someone with false assurance that they have not committed the act of murder, placating their conscience by treating them like the victim rather than the victim being the child they paid to have slain, and to not lead to them to Christ for cleansing is HATEFUL.

It is a disservice to the woman, 
a betrayal to their murdered baby, 
and an affront to the God of all truth. 

Consider the words of this passage, especially the last verse.

Jeremiah 23:16-17,21-22 "Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. 
They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you...
I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings."

But, is telling a woman who has already had an abortion that she is a murderer really showing Christ-like compassion?

Yes!  It is the compassion of Christ that motivates me to tell them the truth!

I have spoken to hundreds of women walking into an abortion mill to kill their baby, and it is the love of Christ which constrains me to plead with them to not become murderers. As they are stumbling to the slaughter, it is out of love that I speak truth so that it might prick their conscience and keep them from the blood guilt that will be theirs.  

I have spoken with many who have committed murder to their pre-born child earlier in their life, and it is the love of Christ which constrains me to call them to repentance and find healing in Christ alone.   
  
I know many abolitionist sisters who have had abortions, and abolitionist brothers who have paid for abortions.  They all call themselves murderers saved by the grace of God

I met a woman who was passing by an abortion mill in Kansas City, Kansas, who told me that she had been sent to prison for killing another person.  In order to share the Gospel it is important that we never whitewash sin.  Sin must be called sin.  When someone admits to doing wrong, speaking the truth may seem hard at times, but it is never complicated!

I told her the exact same thing I had just been telling mothers walking inside to pay for an abortion and pleaded with her to repent and trust in Christ alone for her salvation! 

We spoke for about 15 minutes (quite an interesting conversation), and before she left, she told me that she thought I was the kindest and noblest man she had ever met. I responded that any good she saw in me was because of Jesus Christ (and I only share this to demonstrate that telling this woman the truth about her murder was not unloving and she recognized that I truly cared for her).   

Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

Christians, let us speak the truth.

Another morning, at the abortion mill, I talked with a mother who had heard me preaching at the gates of death, and had just turned away from aborting her child.  As we spoke, she admitted to having had a previous abortion six months before.  

Even as I rejoiced with her over the baby alive within her, I openly shared with her that the other baby was just as much a human being as this one and that she had murdered that child.  As I counseled her to repent of that former murder, turn to Jesus Christ for His cleansing, and grieve over that precious baby's death, tears filled her eyes!  She listened.  She exchanged contact information with us.  We went on to have a huge baby shower for her little bundle of a boy, and continue to engage her in relationship!  

Speaking the truth in love may be hard to do sometimes, but it is not complicated.

Ephesians 4:15 "But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:"

Abortion is murder and must be abolished.

What Comes to Mind When the Titanic is Mentioned?

Yesterday 105 years ago, the Titanic struck an iceberg.

Early this morning, 105 years ago, that great ship sank beneath the dark frigid waters.
What comes to mind at the words "the Titanic"?

I believe that many people think of the ship that sank on April 15th, 1912, the tragedy that shocked the world, and perhaps they think of certain elements of the account, such as

The luxury of the ocean liner on her ill-fated maiden voyage.

The lack of sufficient lifeboats, and the lives of some 1,500 people lost because of it.

Notable people on board who made it, or didn't, such as Molly Brown and John Astor.

The honorable men, some very wealthy, who gave up their seats so that women and children could be rescued.

The ship's young cabin boys, who also yielded their seat in the lifeboats.

The story of the cowardly scoundrel, who tried to dress like a woman in order to gain a place.

Phrases that come to mind, like "Not even God could sink this ship", and "Women and children first!"

I believe also that many people think of a movie released in 1997, by the name Titanic, which is called one of the most romantic films of all time.  It was the first movie to gross over a billion.    In the United States, an estimated 128 million tickets were sold in the initial theatrical run. That is a good portion of the national population of 272.6 million at the time.  For the 100 year anniversary, they made a 3D version of it, and the gross profit swelled to over 2 billion total.

I am sure that many thousands, perhaps millions more, have seen it since then, in theatres and in their homes (I cannot include myself in that number).  It had incredible effects, an outstanding musical score, and an emotionally tugging story line.  Tragically, it featured lust and fornication in the lives of the two main characters, highlighting it as a grand and beautiful thing.  In that way, Titanic sinks in depravity, even as the Titanic sank into the depths.

So what do I think of when I hear the word Titanic? 

I think of John Harper, God's man on board that ocean liner, who went out of this world blazing forth the truth of the Gospel in that dark night, 

-who called out, "Women, children, and the unsaved into the lifeboats first!"

-who loving set his 6 year old daughter Nana in a lifeboat to ensure her protection, and 
stayed on board to preach and die.

-who declared the Gospel to the over 1,000 passengers remaining in the face of grim death.

-who in the waters, surrounded by people drowning, was heard shouting, "Believe on the 
Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved!", leading them to faith in Christ, even as they died.

-who took off his own life preserver in the waves and gave it to an unrepentant sinner, saying, "You need this more than I do."  Who later led that man to the Lord.

-whose last words were "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved."

-who is called the Last Hero of the Titanic.  (You can read more about John Harper, by going to the labels of my blog and clicking Ships, then reading the post "Of Ships and Souls".)

How does the sinking of the Titanic strike me? 

Three things come to mind, three things that I can do about it.

1. It challenges me to be a man of honor, willing, and even seeking for chances to yield my own rights and comfort for the good of others.

2. It affords a great opportunity to preach the Gospel, and to encourage fellow Christians to do the same.  Such a springboard to go from an event that everyone has heard of, and then bring out parallels to the need for and way of salvation!  It can be done in print and in person.  I have used it while standing on the deck of a cruise ship, standing on a street corner, in front of an abortion mill, in a homeless mission chapel, elementary and high school chapel services, churches, and in one-on-one conversations many times.  It is so simple and powerful.  

3. It also affords a platform to exhort for the abolition of abortion!  Just bringing out the concept of giving place to protect those more vulnerable than myself, and then challenging the hearer to do that for the 3,000+ that will be murdered TODAY.  That is hundreds more than were on the Titanic when it struck the ice.  We are to actively seek justice and equity for the weak and defenseless, not just be against their murder in our opinions.  

Abortion must be abolished.

Let Me Not Pause

If, in the midst of an Holocaust, my hands are IDLE,
Could it be that my heart harbors an IDOL?

My way, my comfort, my Self.
Over my Lord and my neighbour?
Neglecting justice and mercy,
IDOLness in my heart and behaviour

What saith the Scripture?
Have I not read?
That I should not live for Self, but for Him, 
Who died and rose from the dead?

Am I not bought with a price
So that I am not mine own?
Lord Jesus, abolish this worship of Self in me;
And make mine heart Thy throne. 

Constrain my being with the love of Christ,
So that I cannot but obey the call of my Master.
To pray, preach, provide, provoke, and to plead,
To shine in darkness, to follow Thy lead.

When babies made in God's image are destroyed, 
Mercy forsaken, justice abused
When Thou saidst, "I sought for a man," 
Let me not say, "...Have me excused."

That when truth is fallen in the streets, 
And the weak are slain without cause;
When someone is needed to "stand in the gap",
By Thy grace, LET ME NOT PAUSE.

Abortion Must Be Abolished.

Tenent of Abolitionism—The Time is Now (Part 6 of 6)

The final and fifth tenet of Abolition is Immediatism.

As abolitionists, we believe that allowing abortion in some cases along the way to its total abolition is neither strategically sound nor consistently Christian. You cannot abolish any evil by justifying or allowing it to continue in some cases.

Any strategy for ending abortion in this country which allows for the continued occurrence of some abortions for the sake of eventually outlawing the rest, though seemingly pragmatic, is compromise and its promises of effectiveness are false.  It dehumanizes the babies that are not protected and undermines the truth that these innocents are people and that abortion is murder.

Abolition is a call not only to stop/end/forsake/abolish abortion itself, but also the practice that has largely become characteristic of the Prolife Movement, namely,
Treating abortion as undesirable healthcare, rather than the actual murder of the innocent.
Cloaking, neglecting, or the outright rejection of using God’s Creation, Law, and the Gospel to contend with abortion rather than consistently wielding these truths as the REAL weapon to turn the heart.
Regulating the mass murder of the most vulnerable, telling WHO can murder, WHEN they can murder, WHY they can murder, WHERE they can murder, and HOW they can murder under color of “law”, rather than actually engaging for the abolition of that murder under law.

As abolitionists, we reject incremental steps and the gradual regulation of evil. This is not an issue of what seems practical, achievable, or reasonable. It is an issue of obedience to God.

Many have rejoiced over the closing of the great number of Abortion Clinics throughout our Country within the last few years.   In many cases, it has been prolife legislation that has shut these places of death down. Prolife regulatory laws such as requiring cleanliness, licenses, wider halls, closer vicinity to a hospital where the abortionist has residency privileges, stipulating “safer” procedures (for the mother of course, NOT the child), etc., has closed the doors of those who cannot meet them.  

But these laws are treating treating abortion as “healthcare”, not as what we know it really is—homicide of the most defenseless of human beings.  These laws are not establishing justice for the fatherless who we are commanded to protect, but are only insuring the safety and comfort of those who are hiring to have them killed.

Although these little dirty mills are no more, the killing continues. Where prolife laws have secured the destruction of some businesses they have also secured the success of many more.  Bigger, cleaner, and respectable looking abortuaries are being built (in mind to keep any client from having any contact with Christians who would counsel them to flee or offer them help).  These businesses are now even more efficient killing centers, giving the bloody deeds done within their walls a sanitized cover, mollifying the conscience.  They remain open due to prolife laws.

Also in relation to the mills shutting down, we must recognize that for years now, one can go buy an abortion at any Walmart, CVS, or Walgreens.  It is available over the counter.  The babies are still being MURDERED, only at a younger age.  Yet that doesn't seem to bother us so much because of how ageist we have become.

We must make no compromise with sin or with the means of fighting sin

Abortion is the abominable sin of child sacrifice and as such we call for its immediate and total abolition.  (Jeremiah 25:25, John 8:11, Acts 17:30, Proverbs 9:6).

We see this in God’s dealing with Judah: “They said, Turn ye again NOW every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever:” (Jeremiah 25:25). God never accepts a gradual repentance of sin (individually or nationally) but rather demands a radical cutting off and turning towards Christ alone in total faith.  Jesus declared to sinners, “Go, and sin no more” (John 8:11). Repentance is not an evolutionary transition from darkness to light over time. Repentance is a complete reversal of belief, thought, and action.  We are to call people NOW to repent (Acts 17:30; II Corinthians 6:2).  “Forsake the foolish and live” (Proverbs 9:6).

The time for justice is always now!


Abortion must be abolished.

Tenent of Abolitionism—The Job Nobody Wants (Part 5 of 6)

The fourth tenet of Abolitionism is the Role of the Body of Christ.

We believe that seeking and working for Abolition is a duty of the church.  Christians have been given the duty by their God to shine the light of Christ in this dark and crooked generation (Philippians 2:15).  

The primary means God has ordained to display His manifold wisdom to the world is through His people (Titus 2:11-14). Abolition is an obligation of the church.  It is a mandatory ministry to fulfill her ordained purpose—to be salt and light in this sin-sick culture of decay. The church was specifically commissioned to bring the Gospel into conflict with every dark deed of man!  It's a job for sure.  But it is our job!

As Christians, we are commanded to "abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good" (Romans 12:9), to reprove and expose evil (Ephesians 5:11), and to destroy the ungodly thinking that defends evil (II Corinthians 10:5).  We are exhorted to indefatigably rescue the weak from death (Proverbs 24:10-12), snatch the falling from flames (Jude 23), open our mouths for the innocent being slain (Proverbs 31:8-9), and hold back the stumbling from the slaughter (Proverbs 24:11-12).

And to those churches and individuals who are slumbering in this role, the Bible plainly declares:  “Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame” (I Corinthians 15:34).  

It is a shame upon the body of Christ if we are not contending for the abolition of the great evil of abortion due to cowardice, callousness, complacency, convenience, complicity, or compromise.  

God warns us not to stop our ears “at the cry of the poor” (Proverbs 21:13) nor hide our eyes from their needs (Proverbs 28:27).  The preborn are the poorest and most vulnerable in all of our society.

We are told in scripture that the righteous considers the cause of the poor; it is the wicked that takes care not to know it (Proverbs 29:7).

As abolitionists we do what we can to awaken the Church to fulfill her ordained purpose in this sin-spoiled and darkened world (Matthew 5:13-16). The love of Christ constrains us to call for justice, mercy, and equity for the innocent and the weak.  

Every age has its evil and every age has it's abolitionists. 

Historically, Christians have confronted the accepted evils in their cultures with the light of the Gospel: infanticide in Rome, slave trade in the British Empire, chattel slavery in the United States, twin killing in Nigeria, and temple prostitution/slavery in India. 


God's people rose up to Assist and Agitate those sinful societies: exposing abominations, reproving the wicked, standing for justice and mercy, rescuing the fatherless, helping the weak in their distress, calling to repentance, and demanding that leaders abolish evil practices.  

The tragedy is that today most of the American Church is absent from the battle altogether.  As bodies, they are not wielding the sword of the Gospel against child sacrifice—they are prolife in opinion but not in practice.  They are weekly, sometimes 2 or 3 times a week, gathering to sing praises to their God but are daily ignoring those made in His image being slaughtered down the street from their houses of worship.   They do not go corporately to the abortion mills, neither do they seek to engage the culture concerning the holocaust of the preborn.  

According to Scripture, "pure religion and undefiled" (genuine and practical Christianity being lived out) is to look after the fatherless (abandoned children) and the widows (women in great need) when they are in their affliction (James 1:27). 

This work of abolition is also imperative for us to be consistent with the TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS!

Scripture plainly states, "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these" (Mark 12:30-31). 

Jesus skillfully tells the story of the good Samaritan to his disciples so that there would be no misunderstanding regarding exactly who the neighbor we are commanded to love, is.  The preborn human is the most marginalized, abandoned, victimized, abused, tortured, "beaten and left for dead" neighbor in our midst.  Two babies are murdered every minute of every day in the midst of hundreds of thousands of Bible believing churches.

Thus, it is the role of the Church, the role of every individual Christian, to stop what they are doing and tend to these precious children that we have knowledge as to where and when they are being burned with chemicals or ripped to pieces to procure their death.  One of the ways that the Church is to do as the "good Samaritan" did, would be to plead and stand up for the cause of the vulnerable and defenseless (Proverbs 31:8-9) at the very gates of death. 

"If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;  If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?" (Proverbs 24:11-12). 

Abortion must be abolished!
