Abortion is a Deal-Breaker for Me

Al Mohler published a blog article today entitled Is the Abortion Argument Changing?. It’s excellent. At the end, he references a sermon by Russell Moore that makes the argument that Joseph (Jesus’ step-father) was a “single-issue evangelical.”

I’m fairly progressive. I’m quite forward-thinking. But when it comes to the issue of life in relationship to politics, elections, legislation, etc., abortion is still a deal-breaker for me. Am I a narrow-minded single-issue evangelical? Absolutely. Why? Because the whole time we’re focused on…

  • The environment.
  • Unemployment.
  • Taxes.
  • Welfare.
  • Healthcare.
  • The war.
  • Foreign relations.
  • The economy.
  • Defense.
  • New energy sources.

God is focused on the innocent. He always has been. He always will be. We can say “just look beyond this one issue.” As far as I’m concerned, that’s like asking the guy who is having a heart attack to focus on his runny nose. We have a problem for which God will surely pour out His wrath. They are ultimately his babies, after all.

  1. I’d be interested to know if you feel as strongly against capital punishment. A life is a life, innocent or not. That’s what Jesus believed.

  2. @Sam, you’re right to say life is important to Jesus, no matter what. But the Bible is the product of the mind of God. So Jesus was approving of the comments Paul made in Romans 13 concerning the role of government to wield a “sword” in civil matters.

    The execution of a violent criminal is a matter of civil justice. The survival of the unborn is a matter of civil rights. Resorting to the capital punishment issue is really a distraction from all of the absurdities concerning abortion.

    You say with certainty, “that’s what Jesus believed.” But doesn’t Jesus believe in 100% of His own word?

  3. Just returned home from our third Crisis Pregnancy Center banquet in as many years. What a terrific organization committed to nothing more than sharing the Truth with hurting and confused women. They are so incredibly worthy of our support (time, money and prayer).
