We are living in a day where tolerance is promoted, but really only aimed at shutting up conservative values. In fact, if you espouse the biblical position in the public arena you will be met with incredible intolerance. The most effective way forward today is to demonstrate the biblical position alone blesses and enriches life. Prov. 10:22 says, “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” Deep conviction about this truth will help us see we are the only hope in this world, not the lies of the culture.
One powerful way to do this is to expose these sins as the horrible things they are. For instance, in 2012 for the first time in New York more black babies were killed by abortion (31,328) than were let live (24,758). Further, black babies were 42.4% of the total number of abortions in New York even though they’re not even close to that percentage of the population. We shouldn’t be surprised because Margaret Sanger who founded Planned Parenthood said it was started “…to protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit.” But this was hidden cleverly by offering it as “choice” instead of “murder” so these undesirables wouldn’t know, for as Sanger went on to say, “We don’t want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the negro population.” We must show that the roots that started this sinful behavior were racism and eugenics intended to eradicate black people. Further, the sheer number of women who are a psychological wreck after an abortion, and the staggering amount who attempt suicide should be enough to see this as the sin it is. This helps people see quickly to the heart of these things.
Another way to show how only our views bless is pointing at the horrendous things touted as social programs which ignore the importance of the family. The Institute for American Values did a study on the taxpayer cost of out-of-wedlock childbearing. It’s an annual figure of $112 billion per year. This shows we can bankrupt ourselves as a nation trying to occupy the place only God can hold. Sin doesn’t work. It impoverishes. Our arrogance and its consequences are also found in tax benefits and social programs weighted toward non-married mothers. The fallout is easily seen in that the number one common denominator in male prisoners is . . . absentee fathers.
The point is I’m not against these things because I’m against someone’s “choice.” I’m against them because it’s murder and it rips women apart mentally and psychologically for years. Because breaking homes destroys lives! All opinions must be tested and each must show how our opinion blesses. I can show how the biblical one does! The evidence is in, and it’s clear that God is right!
