Elijah challenged the people of his time, as he challenges us today, how long are we going to sit on the fence? If God is God,
follow him. If not, don't. But make up your mind and act on your conclusion!
The horror of abortion is happening unabated around the world, despite the scientific fact that life begins at conception.
Every life is of inestimable value, holy unto God, created by Him. He has a plan for every life, and the Church must take the lead
in respecting and fighting for that plan.
1 Kings 18:17-21
The moment Ahab saw Elijah he said, 'So it's you, old troublemaker!'
"'It's not I who has caused trouble in Israel,' said Elijah, 'but you and your government--you've dumped GOD's ways and commands and
run off after the local gods, the Baals. Here's what I want you to do: Assemble everyone in Israel at Mount Carmel. And make sure
that the special pets of Jezebel, the four hundred and fifty prophets of the local gods, the Baals, and the four hundred prophets
of the whore goddess Asherah, are there.'
"So Ahab summoned everyone in Israel, particularly the prophets, to Mount Carmel.
"Elijah challenged the people: 'How long are you going to sit on the fence? If GOD is the real God, follow him; if it's Baal,
follow him. Make up your minds!'
"Nobody said a word; nobody made a move" (The Message).
"Then a voice came from the throne, saying:
'Praise our God, all you his loving servants and all who reverence and honor him - those who are lowly and those who
"Then I heard what seemed to be the thunderous voice of a great multitude, like the sound of a massive waterfall and mighty peals
of thunder, crying out:
For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns
Let us rejoice and exalt him and give him glory,
because the wedding celebration of the Lamb has come.
And his bride has made herself ready.
'Fine linen, shining bright and clear,
has been given to her to wear,
and the fine linen represents
the righteous deeds of his holy believers.'" (TPT).
"You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother's womb.
I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to
think about it! How thoroughly you know me, Lord! You even formed every bone in my bodywhen you created me in the secret place,
carefully, skillfully shaping me from nothing to something.You saw who you created me to be before I became me! Before I'd ever
seen the light of day, the number of days you planned for mewere already recorded in your book" (TPT).
To survive in 2021, it's necessary to live by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God. If you're using reason
to solve your situation, you aren't living by faith.
What we will tolerate, we will never pay the price to change. That's especially true when it comes to solving our culture's
moral ills -- most prominently, abortion. We don't have to bow down to the culture that has come to celebrate the death of
unborn babies in the name of "reproductive rights" and "bodily autonomy."
Every life is of inestimable value -- holy unto God and created by Him in fulfillment of His plan. We frustrate the grace of
God when we claim sovereignty over other lives. If we're going to "follow the science," as the cultural Left insists, we must
honor unborn lives and protect them as we protect any other life.
And yet, more than 42.6 million lives were lost to abortion in 2020, more than all other causes of death combined. If we're
going to take drastic measures to save lives from a virus, we certainly can commit our efforts to save lives from the world's
