Evil things happen here. Not for the faint of heart or for those who are fearful of lovingly confronting sinners who are in need of Christ. What a day! After having a an hour long lengthy conversation at Panera Bread at Westfield North County Mall with Brick, a senior citizen who is a universalists and Ravi his friend, I was incited to make a presence at Planned Parenthood. While there, I was able to plead with my first contact Francisco who came out from the doors of PP concerning the countless numbers of babies in their early gestational periods–made in God’s image,(feet and fingers forming already) that are murdered by the abortion pill (abortifacient, RU-486). He was very attentive and seemed to take heed to what was said. Pray that he calls me so that I can share more details of the Gospel. I was also able to make pity and concise statements of God’s Word to the PP workers who were leaving in order to stir their conscience.
As I had a brief conversation with a professing believer who made her way to a store near PP, we had a edifying conversation concerning the ghastly industry of abortion. As I look right over my shoulder I saw a patient leaving PP and making her way to the car. I made a brief comment to her concerning the murder that takes place. It seemed like there was a moment of conviction as she turned her head towards me and seemed to have a melancholy spirit. She needs the Gospel of grace. I also had an opportunity to speak to another lady along with her son whose name is Dante in the car and showed Dante and his mother pictures of the babies who are murdered in that center. She seemed to be in tears as I spoke to her about these precious babies who are made in God’s image. I wonder if PP show these pictures to their patients before killing them. Being at PP gave me the opportunity to also share the Gospel with Z who is an Iraqi that works at Havana Cigars near PP. He seemed opened.
Another blessed moment was when I approached a couple: Mohammed and Rachel. I confronted them with the horrors of Planned Parenthood and encouraged to go to a pro-life/pregnancy crisis center. Praise God, by God’s grace, they took down the information and took my Gospel tract and said that they would contact the other center. They did not desire to go inside PP. That is the first time, I have experienced a couple expressing concern over PP. The day ended with an engagement with a professing Christian who stated I had no right to judge people concerning what they do with their body. I responded by saying, God has already judged as stated according to His Word.
Yes, brethren, there are professing believers who will oppose your work. And often times, they do the most damage by being vessels of discouragement, but press on! They are not the ones who will judge your work, it will be God. Love Him and love people.
The truth of the matter is that PP is not a compassionate institution, but they destroy lives and are deceivers. Many are unaware of the heinous services they provide.
Also, next time you go to PP, show people entering the doors of these butcher clinics, the pictures of the babies that are being murdered. It may place a great weight of conviction upon their consciences.
Brothers and sisters, we are dealing with spiritual warfare. Lives hang in the balance–please be the voice for the voiceless, the speechless, and the defenseless. I am thankful for the insurmountable amount of resources we have concerning this pertinent topic, but let us engage face to face with sinners who are lost and in need of Christ. Theological discourse online can only go so far. We must snatch people out from death and from the fire. Look them in the face and compassionately tell them the doctrine of the image of God. And ultimately remember that this war is not merely about abortion, it is mainly a hostile attack against the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I leave with these words from a Christian abolitionist group:
We live in a world where human beings are routinely poisoned, burned, crushed, torn apart, discarded as trash, and destroyed in countless other ways simply because they are unwanted, inconvenient, and not yet born.
They are created in labs, incarcerated in icy chambers, and genetically modified to meet parental preferences.
They are dehumanized, experimented upon like rats, and bought and sold as scientific commodities.”
