If Christians make abortion illegal, what have we really done? The article starts off, The Ohio Senate on Wednesday approved controversial legislation banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected. That was almost four years ago. Now, more states have followed them. The Supreme Court, according to leaked documents, is about to overturn Roe v Wade. And my question is becoming more relevant and more critical every day.
Jesus at the Temple - Matthew
Was Jesus politically active? Or did Jesus avoid politics? Would you believe – yes and yes? Yes, Jesus was politically active? But Jesus avoided politics? How can that be? And more importantly, why does it matter?
Would you make a deal with the devil if he promised to promote Christianity? The answer’s obvious, right? Wrong! It seems to me there are two answers right now. Most, hopefully, say “No way!” Sadly though, I believe many are pretty much doing that right now. It’s a sobering view of Christianity in the U.S. right now. It’s very sad. Scary even.
I dare say, anyone who even claims to be Christian says no to that question. My concern though is that we don’t all examine what we’re doing through lens of the Bible. What Jesus taught. The examples He gave us both through His own life and through His words. Not do we always pay attention to the letter written in the New Testament by Paul, James, Peter, Etc. If we did, I think we’d be shocked. Dismayed by what we’ve been doing.
