The media Center for Reproductive Rights in celebrating the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade has created a video that is pure evil. One can almost smell the sulfur burning about this video. And since it is often the man that encourages the woman to get an abortion perhaps it is right that the CRR is using a man to celebrate, with a seducing leer, the anniversary.
The Center makes a statement about the video, “Center also releases new video starring Mehcad Brooks (True Blood, Necessary Roughness) to celebrate the landmark court decision.”, along with a statement about the anniversary. Although they hope to encourage the public to fight for abortion, the video should open the eyes of the public to the outrageous evil of our time: the killing of innocent children who have no defense and have done no wrong.
Thank God for righteous men who stand beside the women in their lives as they prepare to birth the child God has so graciously given them. Thank God for women who are faithful to the children, even when there is no righteous man to stand with them—except the truly righteous One, Jesus. Thank God for those who do no harm—who stand against the evil perpetrated by such groups as the Center for Reproductive Rights and Planned Parenthood.
With unease I put the video here, but only so that some will begin to understand the extreme evil vexing our souls in these days:
The Scripture tells of the wicked king of Israel, Manasseh. The word of God tells the reader, “Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood until he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin with which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the Lord.” We are told that Manasseh caused Judah to sin more than any of their pagan neighbors. He even killed his own children by burning them before the false god Moloch This was recorded in 2 kings 21.
Yet in 2 Chronicles we read that he was carried away to Babylon where he humbled himself and begged God to forgive him and restore him. And God did just that. Because of God’s great mercy, because of Jesus’ death on the cross there is forgiveness and new life for the sinner.
The apostle Paul called himself the chief of sinners because he had murdered Christians. But he was given graciousness through the cross. Gross evil, calls for denunciation and the proclamation of repentance and salvation. We in the PCUSA who are heavily burdened by a denomination that aligns with such evil must bring that sin before the Lord in repentance and with great grief.
