CONVERSATIONS FOR CHRIST – SPEAKING THE TRUTH OF ABORTION IN LOVE
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, COMMON ABORTION ARGUMENTS AND RESPONSES:
Argument: It’s just a fetus.
Response: Fetus is latin for offspring or little one. It literally means baby.
Argument: It’s just a clump of cells.
Response: We are all just clumps of cells what we are arguing about is the point of dependency that it should be okay to terminate a human life.
Argument: Well if you don’t like it just don’t have one.
Response: I believe that the unborn are unique human beings so what kind of person would I be if I didn’t speak out against their mass murder. It’s no different to me than sitting silently while someone caused you harm and justify it by your perceived worth.
Argument: But all GOP’ers are pro-war and pro-death penalty.
Response: I don’t know anyone who is “pro-war”. Appropriate punishments for convicted criminals and appropriate treatment for innocent victims is a completely different conversation. I am anti-murder at any stage in human life. I would be happy to discuss my views on the death penalty another time but for the sake of this argument lets just say that I agree death by lethal injection is cruel and inhumane and should be outlawed.
Argument: Well if you don’t like abortion why don’t you adopt every child, pay for every expense and give ALL the free things to babies.
Response: Because I believe that women are intelligent enough to know that choices have consequences and not rut like bitches in heat. We live in a time when women are more educated, more in control of their own lives and bodies as they ever have been. But I also understand that life happens and I personally support pregnancy crisis centers, local food pantries and domestic abuse shelters and have no problem with the government giving someone limited welfare to help them get back on their feet.
SIDE RANT FOR THE CHURCH:
Christians sometimes to a TERRIBLE job with young mothers in their own midst. When their own children make a mistake and get pregnant they compassion not punishment ya’ll. And if you are a Christian you are called to help the poor, the orphans, the widows and those who are sick and disabled so if you have a few buck left over every month you should be supporting pregnancy crisis centers and local charities whether you think they “deserve” it or not. Because if the church had done a better job over the years assisting people who are hurting and in need in their own communities we wouldn’t need (at least some if not all) public welfare programs.
WHEN TO STOP ARGUING:
Some people you literally can’t argue with. They will not trust any source that isn’t Planned Parenthood or a liberal site whose statistics are skewed in favor of abortion.
Do not lose your ability to witness to a non-believer because you disagree on a sin. You cannot be surprised when sinners live like sinners.
There will be times when people are not ready to listen to the Word but that is not a reason to walk away from them and it is not a reason to push them to the point that they will no longer listen to anything you say. That is the time to step back and love them the way Jesus loves them and pray that there will be another chance for you to speak the truth and their hearts would be ready to receive it next time.
Some people take years to come to Christ. CS Lewis was an example being raised in a Christian home but not coming to Christ until he was 33.
1 PETER 3: 15 ALWAYS BEING PREPARED TO MAKE A DEFENSE TO ANYONE WHO ASKS YOU FOR A REASON FOR THE HOPE THAT IS IN YOU; YET DO IT WITH GENTLENESS AND RESPECT.
Even if we sin differently we are not better. We are equals. We are equal in our fallen nature, we are equal in our need for Jesus and we are equal at the foot of the cross.
You can’t punch people in the face for Jesus and expect immediate repentance, conversion and reformation. Instead, let us treat each other with the immeasurable value they have within the eyes of Jesus Christ.
