Tenets of Abolitionism—Introduction—What we HOLD to (Part 1 of 6)

We presently live in a culture that murders its children. Over 3,000 little preborn humans are sacrificed to the god of self every single day.  This atrocity is called abortion, and 21,000 babies will be butchered by the end of this week. That is the same number who were killed last week!  We are living in the midst of a Holocaust that has slain over 60,000,000 innocent little children!

The question we pose to ourselves and to others is: "What does Christianity look like in a culture that kills its children?"

My family are abolitionists.  Abolitionists of Human Abortion.  We (and many other fellow Christians across the United States and in some other countries) are seeking for this great evil—which is protected under "color of law"—to be abolished.  We are not part of an "organization", but rather children of the living God with a desire to obey our Heavenly Father in loving our neighbors as we love ourselves.

Our family is also not part of the Prolife Movement.  We do not call ourselves “prolife” or identify with any organization within the movement.  This may seem wrong or at the least peculiar to many in the Church who are unacquainted with the ideology and practice of Abolitionism.  What follows this introduction in 5 different blog posts will hopefully answer your questions and lay to rest any doubts as to why! 

There are many others who have written on this topic and I am grateful for all I have learned from them. I want this to be but another shout in the battle for fellow warriors to take proper ground, hold it manfully, and strive lawfully in the engagement for lives, souls, and the glory of our King.

Abolition is based on 5 Tenets.

The word "tenet", comes from the root teneo, meaning "to hold".  This is also the root for other English words such as tenacity, maintain, continue, tenable, attentiveness, and retain.  A tenet is a doctrine, precept, or principle to which a person holds fast as true, and will not let go.

I urge you to take the time to read these following blog posts, search the Scriptures that are included, and prayerfully consider what the Christian's response must be to this great evil in our land!

Abortion must be abolished.
