Should pastors nurture a climate of hope or a climate of despair in their congregations? If we recognize that preborn babies are precious to God, our responsibility to be "salt and light" requires us to seek to create a culture where their lives are protected. To resign ourselves to the inevitability of the slaughter of the innocent is to surrender to our enemy's stronghold.
