Rob Schwarzwalder reminds us that The Battle for Life Endures – and So Must We. From this article:
As Pastor David Platt has recently noted, Christians cannot shrink back from the battle for life because our efforts “bring us into conflict with the culture around us.” Rather, Platt says, believers should “fight abortion as an assault on God’s creation and an affront to God’s glory. . . . If that which is in the womb is a person formed by God, this issue is not complex at all.”
To care deeply about the poor and the trafficked, the sexually exploited and the habitually addicted, reflects the heart of Christ. But to move away from the battle for unborn life because it is tedious, socially awkward, or exhausting is to abandon the most needy of all to a brutal fate. “Moral and political neutrality here is not an option for those who believe (the) gospel,” Platt says. “If you and I sit idly by while millions of children, individuals in the image of God, around us are dismembered, then we are denying basic biblical truth.”
Amen. The campaign for life must be waged with vigilance, compassion, wisdom, and foresight. But it must be waged, with the full recognition that it might not be won for a long time.
