THE SERVANT GENERAL
THE CULTURE OF LIFE
OUR MISSION OF DEFENDING LIFE
1 John 1:5-2:2
Abortion is rampant in the world. Hundreds of millions of
unborn children have been massacred in the womb just in China
alone. Abortion is legal in most countries in the world. In
these nations abortion can be had at any time. Today they
are even killing those who survive abortion. We have the Herods
of today, heads of powerful governments like Obama of the
had happened in the time of Jesus. “He ordered the massacre
of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old
and under” (Mt 2:16b). In China it is more the massacre
of the girls. In the world it is the killing of the unborn
innocent child. Today that diabolical act is not just in Bethlehem
but in every part of the world. This is the work of depopulationists
and radical LGBT ideologues. The Herods of today are “going
to search for the child to destroy him.” (Mt 2:13c).
there are those of us who oppose abortion and try to defend
life. Well, the diabolical forces of the enemy also assault
us. They accuse us of depriving women of their rights (how
about depriving the child of his/her right to live?). They
pass laws to prevent Christians from ministering to those
who are considering abortion. They imprison those who peacefully
pray around abortion clinics. Those who picket against abortion
have been physically assaulted. There are those who have declared
open season on pro-lifers. “They they would have swallowed
us alive, for their fury blazed against us.” (Ps 124:3).
pro-lifers face truly powerful anti-life opponents. They are
powerful governments like the USA, the European Union, elements
in the United Nations, billionaire philanthropists, international
liberal media. They have all the resources and the accompanying
political and military might. We face a classic David-and-Goliath
fight. But we have our God. “Our help is in the name
of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.” (Ps 124:8).
Jesus our Savior is God-with-us. The Holy Spirit strengthens
and helps us to persevere. “Blessed is the Lord, who
did not leave us to be torn by their teeth.” (Ps 124:6).
are in a classic life-and-death struggle. We are is a classic
light-versus-darkness situation. It is a fight between the
culture of life and the culture of death. We know where we
stand. We know what is right, no matter what the secular culture
says and how it tries to brainwash us. “Now this is
the message that we have heard from him and proclaim to you:
God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all.”
(1 Jn 1:5).
and defend life!
