In the war between life and death, all eyes are on Texas as the Lone Star State legislature is poised to pass a sweeping late-term abortion ban. Gov. Rick Perry has pledged to sign the bill into law. The lines have been clearly drawn surrounding this progress toward equality and civil rights for pre-born Americans. Not surprisingly, as the pro-abortion side loses legislative battle after legislative battle, its â€œtrue colorsâ€ are coming into focus. Those colors are darker than many might have imagined.
During all civil rights struggles there occurs, it seems, some flashpoint in time that indelibly sears into the conscience of a culture, with clarity, the profound realization that one side represents good and the other side evil. Who can forget the images in the 1960s of law enforcement officials turning the hoses â€“ and the dogs â€“ on peaceful African-America demonstrators for merely petitioning their government for racial equality? Millions of fence-sitters across America witnessed this gross injustice on television, sat up in their chairs and finally said: â€œThis is wrong. I will not stand for it.â€
Although, our pro-abortion media will not likely give it much coverage, a similar such flashpoint of clarityÂ occurredÂ this past Tuesday in the Texas State House as pro-abortion activists, throughout the day,shoutedÂ â€œHail Satan!â€ in an effort to drown out pro-life speeches and an impromptu rendering of â€œAmazing Grace.â€ CNNâ€™s Josh Rubin confirmed this astonishing display byÂ tweetingÂ on site: â€œCrowd of anti-abortion activists giving speeches while a group of people chant hail Satan in the background.â€
I would like to take a moment to pause and personally thank our Satan-hailing friends for their brutally wicked honesty. What may have seemed, at the time, a glib bid to mock the peaceful Christians in attendance has, instead, demonstrated to the world exactly from whom (or what) derives the revolting inhumanity that is all things â€œpro-choice.â€
Understandably, many leftist now complain that this frank display of â€œpro-choiceâ€ allegiance to the prince of darkness has hurt the multi-billion dollar baby-killing biz. Theyâ€™re right. It has. Itâ€™s blown away the smokescreen of euphemistic â€œpro-choiceâ€ rhetoric and propaganda to expose, naked beneath, that which lies at abortionâ€™s inglorious core: Death, death and more death.
Indeed, the very Satan they hail was the first â€œpro-choicer.â€ While Jesus is â€œthe way, the truth and the life,â€ Satan is the end, the lie and death itself. While Christ is the â€œauthor of life,â€ Satan is the author of abortion. Our â€œpro-choiceâ€ friends in Texas have now revealed that they at least intuitively recognize this reality.
Matthew 12:34-37 admonishes, â€œFor the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.â€
Do you consider yourself â€œpro-choiceâ€? Perhaps itâ€™s time to reconsider. When â€œpro-choicersâ€ find themselves shouting â€œhail Satan!â€ over a chorus of â€œAmazing Graceâ€ at a gathering geared toward saving babies, maybe itâ€™s time to dust off that olâ€™ worldview and give it a second look.
Scripture warns: â€œThe coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.â€ (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)
If you answer to â€œpro-choice,â€ youâ€™re only deceiving yourself, my friend. Youâ€™re â€œdelighting in wickedness.â€ Pro-choice to do what? Pro-choice to dismember alive a baby girl in her motherâ€™s womb. Thatâ€™s wicked. Thatâ€™s evil â€“ objective, absolute evil â€“ every time and without exception.
Abortion is death. If youâ€™re â€œpro-choice,â€ youâ€™re pro-abortion and, consequently, pro-death. As the babies you should be protecting perish, so, too, do you perish. You are perishing in the spirit, which is a fate worse than physical death. Itâ€™s forever.
The precious aborted babies you refuse to defend â€“ the babies you condemn to death â€“ will see God. Ultimately, they will have eternal life. But because you â€œrefuse to love the truthâ€ and â€œdelight in wickedness,â€ Scripture warns that, unless you repent and are saved, you will not. If you believe that this is about â€œwomenâ€™s reproductive rights,â€ then youâ€™re laboring â€œunder a powerful delusion.â€ You â€œserve the lie.â€
Whether you know it or not, you serve Satan.
Open your eyes.
As goes the refrain, â€œI once was lost, but now Iâ€™m found, was blind, but now I see.â€ You can still be found. You can still see. A big step in the right direction is to first admit this painful truth: â€œPro-choiceâ€ is pro-death.
Join the right side of history. Join the side of good over evil. Join the side of life over death.
