CHARLOTTE, NC, Dec. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following statement is from Rev. Flip Benham, Director of Operation Save America:
"Fetal pain" legislation is the typical National Right To Life (NRLC)"incremental" approach to end abortion. It will never stand upon the God's Word and never fight the battle so as to win!
"Fetal pain" legislation, though sounding good, is a monstrous lie that takes our eyes off the true nature of the battle. Abortion is preeminently a Gospel issue. The devil would be happy with this, "oh so cleverly crafted," legislation. "We need to be kind to the babies we are going to murder. Let's reduce the pain for God's sake and be humane in the way we kill." The devil loses nothing with this "gentler and kinder" way to kill.
It assuages our consciences over the brutal murder of thousands of children every day, and makes us feel we have accomplished something for God. In fact, we have only exacerbated the problem. Christians must unsheathe the Sword of the Spirit (God's Word) and stand where God stands. The life of every child conceived is precious in God's sight and can never be legislated away by God's people – no matter how well intentioned the legislation.
These bills only seem productive - they are, in reality, counter-productive. They will be no more effective at ending abortion than the bills introduced to deal with slavery. The incremental 3/5'ths law seemed like progress – but nothing less than national repentance over the SIN of slavery would end the diabolical institution itself. The call to repentance over slavery began in the Churches of our land. It took a great Civil War and an Emancipation Proclamation signed by the President himself, for God's wrath upon this nation to subside.
The bills initiated by the (NRLC) may stop some abortions but will never end ABORTION! This is a job that only the Church of Jesus Christ is equipped to handle. The gates of hell cannot prevail against her. Abortion will come to an end in America when the Church of Jesus Christ makes up her mind it will come to an end – not one second sooner. Judgment begins in the house of God
Only a national call to repentance over the sin of abortion (over 50 million children dead), and an Emancipation Proclamation for the Unborn Child, signed into law by the President of the USA, will demonstrate the fruit of our repentance. Anything less is utterly futile.
