When it comes to the battle for the right to life, one assumption that we make in the evangelical world is thinking that we must elect one degree of despot over and against another despot in order to get the Supreme Court we need to overturn Roe v. Wade. For those of you who are just waking up to social issues, Roe v. Wade is the Supreme Court ruling that legalized the murder of children in the womb of their mothers.
Overturning this Molech ruling has been the goal of Christians for decades. It is a noble cause, but one that is still off the mark just slightly. And being off the mark, even slightly, is never a good thing.
Now, upfront, let me say that I am opposed to all abortions, in all cases, especially the life-threatening cases (since all abortions in all cases are life-threatening). The taking of innocent life is always murder.
But the point here is that we are misguided if we think that by overturning Roe v. Wade, we will have achieved something. All we will have done is add another law to the Law that has already been given: Thou shall not murder. If another law is all we needed to change things in our country, we could have legislated ourselves into heaven.
But alas, the law, both man-made and God given, does nothing but condemn us. All the law can do is show us our sinfulness. This is one reason why the Ten Commandments have been run out of the common culture: the Ten Commandments show us to be the sinners that we are.
So changing man-made laws will not improve things. Even if Roe v. Wade is ever overturned, and I doubt that it will be, it will not end abortions in our country. We are a murderous nation and will continue to be so. If the ruling is overturned, abortion providers will just go underground and will be hailed by those in the Democratic Party, Media, and on the Left as champions of freedom. They will become martyrs for Molech.
Please don’t think that I’m saying we should abandon our stance, our pro-life centers, our marches, our rallies against abortion. We should continue to do all of these things as we are led to do so, and we should work toward changing the law IF that door is open to us.
However, in the fight to end this wicked practice and law, we should not compromise our principles by voting for someone like Donald Trump in order to stack a Supreme Court to achieve our purposes. Trump is not the answer, and was never intended to be. This may be why we were given Trump in this election cycle. God may be showing us that we will not achieve good things by aligning ourselves with the wicked. You cannot turn to darkness in order to achieve something that belongs to the Light of the World.
Yes, we are to be faithful in the realms presented to us. To those who work in pro-life centers, continue to do so. Those who march, march. Those who pray, pray to end it. But let us not compromise our values, our convictions, for the sake of the cause. We should not bend a knee to Nebuchadnezzar simply to overturn Roe v. Wade. The LORD wants our obedience to Him, not our compromise with the world, because in the end, only He can move in the hearts and minds of the people of this nation in bringing about this ghastly practice. We are to be faithful to what He has called us to do, and trust Him with the rest.
