Wake Up Church! An Open Letter From Abolish Human Abortion

Dear Church, I am standing in front of YOUR local abortion clinic.Behind these walls thousands of human beings have been dismembered and destroyed by surgical instruments and chemical poisons.From this parking lot, thousands of women have been led to the slaughter to sacrifice their unborn children in a misguided attempt to preserve their own lives.Within these walls works a man who “lies in wait for blood”.A man who “makes the fatherless his prey”. A man who profits from the extermination of innocent human life.Children are murdered here all year round, and have been murdered here, since 1974.Let me explain something to you.Every abortion that occurs within this building sheds the blood of an innocent human being created in the image of your God.Every abortion takes the life of a child who has been abandoned by their father, betrayed by their mother, and forsaken by our society.Everyone involved in this practice is your neighbor.And Jesus, whom you call your Lord…weeps.Remember how HE said that whatever you did not do for the “least of these,” you did not do for me?Well, let me make it plain:While you pile into church buildings and sing songs about what a friend you have in Jesus, Jesus is being taken over and over again into one of these so-called “clinics” to be murdered in his mother’s womb for less than thirty pieces of silver.Perhaps you live under the impression that these people are not your neighbors.Solet me remind you of another story.There was a man on a journey one day who fell among robbers who beat him and left him for dead on the side of the road.As he lay there… three men passed by.The first two, upstanding religious leaders of the day, avoided him like he wasn’t even there ….and rushed on to other more pressing and primary things.A third man, however, looked on this wounded stranger with compassion, and he did all that he could to rescue and restore his life.This man was a good neighbor.The other men? They were deluded, self-righteous, falsely important people keeping some other main thing the main thing, but they were bad neighbors, and they did not love their fellow man, nor honor God in whose image he was made.Professing Christians make up the majority of the people in our culture, ….and our culture, permits the slaughter of two unborn human beings every minute of every day.That’s 1.6 million babies killed a year and over 55 million since the establishment of legalized Child Sacrifice.WAKE UP CHURCH! This is going on all around you… and you, you drive by the places of death on your way to worship.Are you not like the priest or the levite who chose to take the other side of the road?Can you not see that God’s image is defiled here?
Do you not understand that the incarnation of Christ is demonically debauched behind these doors?Do you not see that your church is at peace with child sacrifice?Maybe you think this isn’t the church’s job?Perhaps you believe that caring for the abandoned women and fatherless children in your community is of only secondary importance, the priority of some particular pro-life para ministry.Well, it’s not.“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”Yes. You have creating these little comfort zones and set up a culture of life in a culture of death. And you’ve built up these little castles where you can carry out your gospel presentations, and biblical expositions…and sing your songs, and hold your festivals and church functions, all within the safety of your freshly painted walls, with their flat screen TVs, and Thomas Kinkade paintings.But have you become so enamored with the things of this world and the ministry programs going in your building that you cannot see that every abortion committed at this place is a denial of your great commission?You may think that you are already doing something about this, and you may be doing something but please do not fool yourself into thinking that you are doing all that you can, or all that you must.Do not delude yourself into believing that this video is directed at somebody else.I’m not talking to the liberal churches, or the seeker sensitive churches, or to every other church but yours.I am talking to you; The bible believing, evangelical, theologically orthodox, PRO – LIFE– CHURCH.The “least of these” are being aborted a stones throw away from the Braum’s you stop at to buy ice cream on the way home from church.And where is your salt? …where is your light?Pastors: Your worship centers are not devoid of sermons on the Sanctity of human Life.You have not failed to TELL your people to love God and to love their neighbors.But have you considered how blatantly inconsistent your flock is when it comes to keeping the command to love ones neighbor in a culture that kills its children?Have you considered that the failure of your flock might have something to do with the fact that they are only doing what you do and not what you say.Have you seriously considered whether you are failing to keep the commandments yourself?If you have… Repent!For “You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.”And “God hates and reject your festivals and take no delight in your solemn assemblies….He wishes you would stop singing your songs and put away your instruments.” He wants you to “Hate evil, love good, and establish justice in the gate!”Wake. Up. Church.For you will not be simply judged for what you HAVE done; but for what you Could have done, should have done, but did not do.You have not failed to be pro-life, you have failed to be Christian.The first Christians preached Christ crucified and risen from the dead.They turned the world upside down with their teaching and their love. For they walked in a manner that was consistent with the commandments they were making disciples of. Among the many things they did, they rescued children from the trash heaps and river ways of Rome. They tore down infanticide shrines and drove off abortionist guilds. They beseeched their emperors to abolish infanticide, euthanasia, and abortion.We live in a similar world today. And we’re still called to be salt and light.Let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and in truth.For if our faith is without works, it is dead.And its time to must remember who we are, and realize who we are meant to be.Let us understand how far we have fallen. How grievously we have failed.And let us repent and “do the works we did at first.The time to Abolish Human Abortion is now. By T. Russell Hunter
