Que Sera Sera

Do you remember that Doris Day song?

Que Sera Sera

I know all Pro-Lifers aren't Christian, but excuse me while I make an observation on Christianity and abortion.

So many Christians today have the "Que Sera Sera" outlook. They act as if they don't need to do anything about abortion, genocide or any other major problem. I heard one Christian a while back say "If Jesus wanted to end abortion he would".

A Christian leader/speaker said to me the other day "Jesus walked by many who were suffering, he didn't help them all". This was in response to a statement I made that as Christians we need to defend the defenseless, help the helpless, and do everything we can to stop abortion. He debated in defense of abortion the entire time and at one point even said that it was "for the sake of argument".

I do not expect Christian leaders to argue in favor of abortion, ever.

Not once did he say abortion was wrong or that we should do everything we could to end it. That's because it was obvious he wasn't against abortion. As a matter of fact, he brought up how he discussed abortion with people from "both sides" implying that he understood the feelings of both and they were both valid.

I was caught completely off guard with his pro-abortion attitude when I initially brought up the topic. I showed him a Life Card, which you can find at http://www.marchtogether.com/2005/index.htm, and said "This is the ministry I believe God has chosen for me". He answered "YOUR ministry huh?". I knew right away there was something wrong with this picture. He then proceeded to defend abortion in every way that pro-aborts do. I was shocked and had to pull out the usual defenses to defend the defenseless.

I did not expect to have to do this with a Christian leader/speaker.

I've said it before, there absolutely should be a litmus test for LIFE. If we don't demand that our leaders, religious or political, have a Pro-Life view while they are working their way up, don't expect them to have one when they are in power!

There are many ways religious leaders have power, not just as our ministers or priests. There are worship teams, men's prayer groups, women's prayer groups, general prayer groups, home groups and more. If our leaders in the church do not have a solid Pro-Life worldview we can expect to receive opposition or a lack of support instead of support in our Pro-Life efforts.

As a matter of fact, a men's group that I was attending pressured me to stop talking/praying about ending abortion or they would not welcome me anymore. They banded together and told me how it made them uncomfortable and that it was not the place to talk about such issues.

Obviously I don't go there anymore.

Why do churches not want to bring up the Pro-Life topic? Because in my opinion they don't want to lose parishioners. I have heard people in the church say that the first step is to bring people to Jesus and then let him work their hearts.

Wrong.

I believe people should know who Jesus is, what he represents and what he expects from us as we are bringing them to him. If a person is an axe murderer and says he enjoys being an axe murderer we don't say "welcome to Jesus", have a seat and join us", do we?

Aren't people supposed to be challenged to repent for their sins? If a person remains a killer would you really want him to join you in church next Sunday?

Dictionary.com defines repent as:

1. To feel remorse, contrition, or self-reproach for what one has done or failed to do; be contrite.
2. To feel such regret for past conduct as to change one's mind regarding it: repented of intemperate behavior.
3. To make a change for the better as a result of remorse or contrition for one's sins.

All who have sinned are welcomed by Jesus and should be welcomed by Christians who proclaim faith and belief in God. Shouldn't they be also be challenged to stop sinning? When a person is welcomed into a church shouldn't there be standards? Should a church not have to proclaim a Pro-Life stance and demand certain standards for entry into that church, or do we just say "what the heck, all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, come on in"?

I know we don't expect people to deal with all their sins at once. I do think there are many we should be asked to work on right away though. It could be a short list to start:

1) Are you a criminal?
2) Do you support abortion?
3) Are you a drug addict or alcoholic?

If you answered yes to any of those items, we expect you to stop doing those things and we challenge you to live a moral life, one day at a time.

I don't expect to hear Que Sera Sera when it comes to the topic of abortion from church leaders/speakers.

I've noticed that the prevailing theology at many "Christian" churches is, "just be nice." I've heard the term "cotton candy Christianity" used to refer to such congregations. Abortion absolutely is murder and we should not refrain from talking about it. Thanks for shining the light on this problem.
