Pro-Life Fake “Christians” Say They Oppose Abortion But Will Vote for Pro-Abortion Presidential Candidates
A civil war is coming to America.
Only this time it will be about abortion rather than slavery.
“Some people [who are convinced they are Christians] would be shocked and dismayed at the [biblical] claim that rejecting Jesus’s command by supporting abortion means they do not love Jesus and have [therefore] become apostates [i.e. fake Christians ]… The prime examples in this category are mainline denominations such as the Episcopal Church , Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) , and the United Church of Christ . Each of these denominations concluded that abortion is morally acceptable because they first rejected the Bible as their primary source of authority. Their official sanctioning of abortion is a mere signpost that [they] are on a trajectory toward full apostasy… If we are going to make the American church pro-life we need to correct ignorance [and] separate from apostasy [which Christians are commanded to do, Mat 28:20 ].”
“Many people claim to be pro-life but not nearly as many [vote] on their pro-life convictions. “
Christians Cannot be “Personally Opposed” to Abortion But Still Support Legal Abortions For Others
Abortion is murder and murder is the ultimate crime and epitome of evil.
Elections Don’t Matter?
Democrat Governors are Pushing Abortions Up to Birth and Infanticide
“Those who avoid all political discussions and engagement are essentially casting a vote for the [ anti-Christian , liberal ] status quo. American churches in the early 19th century that did not speak out against slavery because that was what we would now call ‘getting political’ were actually supporting slavery by doing so. To not be political is to be political.“
[Tim Keller, in that article, gets that point exactly right (as he has been on several other critical points ). Most of the rest of his essay following the above-qoted point, however, was glaringly erroneous (as he has been on some other things as well).]
“[W]ith regard to that sensitive matter of church and state… there are other Christian leaders, like Mariam Bell, more qualified [than Tim Keller] to speak and advise in this area… Dr. Keller argues that Christians don’t ‘fit into the two-party system‘ and that ‘they are pushed toward two main options‘… In the past this would certainly have been true, and there would have been no argument. However, things are [very, very] different today… For instance, when one political party in our two-party system votes into law that which is Godless in every way, and disciples others (especially our children) in this same godlessness while in public schools; and when the other party does not, and even upholds the Moral Law of God, isn’t this party the only one supporting Christian teaching (especially in the areas of biblical marriage, born and un-born children, and gender)? Aren’t we just stating the obvious?… Are all ‘thoughtful Christians‘ trying to obey God’s call, as Dr. Keller… says [by citing an aquaintance of his]? I don’t think so [actually, ‘hardly’]. Otherwise ‘thoughtful Christians‘ on the Left and ‘thoughtful Christians‘ on the Right would all agree that abortion is murder; that the definition of marriage is given by God, not the state; that gender is determined by God [and, therefore, also by science since all truth is God’s truth ], not the individual; that bearing false witness [i.e. lying] is very serious to God, even if [liberals] don’t think so. Such thinking is biblically and politically naïve [actually, it’s not ‘thinking‘ at all; it is godless, anti-Christian self-deceit borne not of God but of Satan]… Today, the differences between good and evil are stark, with the Democrat Party supporting infanticide, euthanasia, gay marriage, gender identity, and the list grows every day. Is it possible for ‘thoughtful Christians, all trying to obey God’s call‘, to ‘reasonably appear at different places on the political spectrum, with loyalties to different political strategies‘? The answer is [biblically and unequivocally] ‘no‘, it is not possible if we honor the same God and His Word… The church’s mission is to speak of saving grace, of sin, of common grace to everyone. This involves knowledge of God’s Moral Law and action on the believers’ part… Churches today not dependent on God, especially in something as critical as the state’s ability to legislate immorality, are in danger of becoming ‘useless‘ in God’s eyes [Rev 3:15-16]. Being useful, on the other hand, by confronting [governmental] as well as individual sin, and showing grace, is exactly what the church should be doing all the time.“
“Keller makes a dangerous mistake in assuming moral equivalency between both of the major political parties in the United States today, and the positions they take on certain important issues; most importantly, the issue of abortion… By finding ways to compromise the philosophies of both political parties… Keller is acting as if the preborn are not fully human… Clearly, a political party which is engaged in advocating for and defending all of these practices is NOT one that is in line with a Biblical worldview, nor is it one which Christians concerned with upholding a Biblical worldview of truth and justice should support. As Pastor Keller himself points out, ‘The biblical commands to lift up the poor and to defend the rights of the oppressed are moral imperatives for believers. For individual Christians to speak out against egregious violations of these moral requirements is not optional‘… If an entire political party were openly in support of slavery and vowed to back candidates who would use their office to defend the practice legislatively, I am sure Pastor Keller would say Christians had a moral duty to oppose that party until they changed their position on the issue or until society as a whole opposed the practice.“

[So why, then, don’t professing “Christians” vote for legislators who will outlaw abortion and participate in the education process (especially of their own children, but also of their friends and neighbors) about the truths of abortion ?
