Yesterday I read about a new partisan political organization called Pro-life Evangelicals for Biden. I stared at the screen in disbelief. Wouldn’t that be the same as forming an organization during the Civil War called Abolitionists for Robert E. Lee?
Let’s analyze exactly what it means to be a Pro-Life Evangelical for Joe Biden.
- If you are “pro-life” it means you are against murdering innocent, defenseless, unseen babies.
- If you are “for Joe Biden” it means you support someone who believes it is acceptable to rip the
arms and legs off the fetus.
In other words, Pro-life Evangelicals for Biden means: Evangelicals who believe it is wrong to murder innocent, defenseless babies in the womb who support a candidate who believes it is okay to murder innocent, defenseless babies in the womb. Am I the only one who sees the chilling hypocrisy?
Now let’s look at this from God’s perspective. If God is okay with this political position, then we are effectively saying that God believes it is wrong to murder innocent, defenseless babies in the womb but He also believes it is okay to vote for someone who will work hard to keep the murder of innocent babies legal. Seriously? What would that say about God’s character? His love? His justice? Could you trust such a capricious, unloving, unjust God?
God is neither capricious nor does He take any pleasure in people who think ripping the arms and legs off an innocent fetus is justified for the sake of some perceived greater good. Just as the abolitionists called on America to repent of her evil ways 160 year ago, I call on my brothers and sisters who give cover to such evil to repent.
Legalized enslavement (and murder) of blacks created in the image of God was evil then, and legalized murder of innocent babies is just as evil today. What does it say about the moral compass of those Christians who claim to be pro-life and then campaign for a politician who spent 47 years clawing his way to power over the dead, torn carcasses of millions of defenseless children.
Today’s Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden, would have been yesterday’s Abolitionists for Robert E. Lee. They can rationalize it all they want, but at the end of the day they are accomplices to murder, which God abhors.
But what is really going on here? Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden are trying to hijack the term “pro-life” to include other issues that are more important to them than the lives of defenseless children created in the image of God, all for the sake of putting their favorite political hack in the White House. That may be shrewd politics, but I doubt the God who said, “Thou shalt not murder,” is fooled.
GOD is the issue!
