A Pastor Speaks About Abortion – H.B. London, Jr.

In all my years as a pastor, I've never received more criticism than when I spoke about my pro-life stand. Responses ranged from sarcasm to anger to apathy. Yet, the defense of the unborn and the less fortunate must be at the forefront of who the church is and what the church does.

Be a 21st Century Pro-Life Pastor by Scott Klusendorf


Why Pastors Often Shun Prolife (Prolife Pastors Network)                  

 

In 2002, John Piper's book, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals, hit the shelves. It is a plea for pastor's to be more consumed with Christ than they are with ministry "success". Chapter 27 ("Brothers, Blow the Trumpet for the Unborn") is all about abortion. The charge at the end of that chapter includes something like this: Create new pro-life ministries... Be a dreamer and an entrepreneur for justice.

A Warning to Modern Day Pastors and Preachers from Matthew 11:20-30” by Robb Willmann

 

This excerpt comes from R.C. Sproul’s book, Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue:

Resistance to unjust laws and dehumanizing practices may be costly. Those who resisted Hitler’s policy of genocide in Germany often paid with their lives. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the pastor who wrote The Cost of Discipleship, was one who paid such a price. The world still recoils in horror at the reality of the Holocaust in Nazi Germany. Yet I believe we are in the midst of a new and more evil holocaust, which sees the destruction of 1.5 million unborn babies every year in the United States alone. This situation calls to mind the words of a German pastor imprisoned for opposing Hitler. Martin Niemoller said, 

"In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. They came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up."

If you care about the slaughter of the innocent, then for God’s sake, speak up. Speak to your family. Speak to your neighbor. Speak to your friend. Speak to your doctor. Speak to your minister. Speak to your congressman. Let your voice be heard in a chorus of protest. Yours is only one voice, but it is a voice. Use it. by R.C. Sproul
