As this article by Michelle Malkin makes painfully clear, the real victim of abortion is humanity. This week is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday in many churches, and there will be many sermons concerning abortion and other matters related to human life. I hope that God will sober us through these sermons.
Although I understand that we should be politically active–especially when it comes to fighting off the horror of abortion, I think we need more than political action. We need repentance.
Political action can enable pride, thereby setting us up for a fall later. Repentance brings about sobriety which gives us a deadly serious outlook on life and a determination to stay fixed on what matters most.
What we really need is not focus groups, bipartisanship, less-heated rhetoric, or the freedom to choose. What we need is the freedom to repent from this enslavement to death which we embraced the day we allowed abortion on demand. May God grant us repentance so our minds can be set free, thus allowing us to discern good from evil. (See here for further explanation).
