Racism & Abortion

Dear Christian Sisters and Brothers,

I’m from Minnesota, and my license plate frame says, “My ❤️ belongs to Minneapolis.”

I am heartbroken over George Floyd’s death and the destruction of property, especially small businesses, in Minneapolis and around the country.

Racism is evil. We must end racism. There’s no excuse for Mr. Floyd’s murder nor Ahmaud Arbery’s or so many more.

Some say that we should be just as angry, if not more, about the millions of black lives murdered by way of abortion. Yes, we should, but we need to meet people where they are.

We are not going to convince African Americans that black pre-born babies matter if we can’t even value their lives.

We blame Margaret Sanger, but we don’t hold each other accountable for judging others based on their skin color. We must check our own hearts.

If you’re a banker, give business loans regardless of color. If you are a school counselor, encourage people to apply for the best colleges because they are capable. If you live in a predominantly white neighborhood, treat your neighbors the way you want to be treated.

If we want the violence to end—both rioting and abortion—then we have to be humbly righteous (which admittedly is redundant).

We must first become righteous through confession and forgiveness, THEN ask God to send the Holy Spirit powerfully to earth so that revival brings others to righteousness.

Righteousness in us makes Christ attractive to others, bringing them to righteousness. With righteousness, rioting ends, racism ends, abortion ends.

We must seek revival with clean hearts.

If you agree, comment with an emoticon and share.

In Christ,

Cheryl

47 Years of Legally Murdering Our Firstborn

Dear Christian Sisters and Brothers,

Today, January 22, 2020, is the 47th anniversary of Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton.

This is how I feel…

We must pray and worship for the end of abortion. We win this spiritual battle through Christ!

Join me in prayer.

Pray for Post-Abortive Women & Men

Dear Christian Sisters & Brothers,

This Sunday is Sanctity of Life Sunday. I praise the pastors who are brave enough to address abortion from the pulpit, and I’m looking forward to hearing all the recordings of what they say!

Will Everyone Show Up?

But most post-abortive women won’t be there.

Women who have not yet healed from their abortions may avoid church on Sunday.

Many post-abortive women won’t go to church at all because they don’t think they are worthy of God’s love.

Many post-abortive women in and out of The Church think abortion is the unforgivable sin.

We need to pray for these women!

Post-Abortive Men, Too

…and for the men who pressured, supported, or coerced women to have abortions.

Often, men don’t realize that their souls are suffering because of their role in abortion, so let’s pray that sermons preached this Sunday open their hearts to the Holy Spirit’s leading.

Let’s Pray & Worship for the End of Abortion

Worship to End Abortion: 40 Daily Prayers
This 30-page booklet will guide you through prayer and worship to end abortion. An Amazon exclusive.

Let’s pray that post-abortive women everywhere trust the agape love of the Lord to forgive them of all of their sins so that they can live close to the Lord in complete righteousness for the rest of their days here on earth (e.g., no more abortions or extramarital sex) as well as for eternity.

Friends, there are not enough people from this generation going to heaven!

We need to do our part in praying and worshiping for:

  • the end of abortion
  • complete healing for all post-abortive women and men (even the angry ones)
  • our churches to be welcoming to the millions of women and men who have been hurt by abortion

That’s what the Great Commission looks like!

Note to Post-Abortive Women & Men

If you have had an abortion, be kind to yourself as you follow God’s leading to complete healing.

Healing is a process. Participating in a post-abortion healing class is part of the process.

Contact your local pregnancy resource center to get enrolled. This time of year, they get a lot of calls, so they are likely starting a new class soon. Don’t hesitate. You’re worth it!

If you’d like to know my healing story, read ReTested: The Story of a Post-Abortive Woman Called to Change the Conversation.

Pray for Pastors Ahead of Sanctity of Life Sunday

Dear Christian Sisters & Brothers,

We have a busy week starting with the Women’s March on Saturday and ending with the March for Life the following Friday.

Are you praying and worshiping for the end of abortion?

This weekend is not only Martin Luther King Jr Day but also Sanctity of Life Sunday.Cheryl as the walking deadjoy sucked right out of Cheryl

Please pray for pastors as they prepare their sanctity of life sermons.

Many pastors shy away from preaching about abortion because they view it as a political issue. But first and foremost, it’s a spiritual issue!

Please encourage your pastor! Don’t badger him or her! Just share your support.

And if you’re a pastor looking for more Bible verses beyond Psalm 139 or want another perspective on God’s love for life, visit these two pages:

And you are always welcome to contact me for a testimony or to ask me questions.

In Christ,

2020 Year of Pro-Life Men?

Dear Christians Sisters and Brothers,

Abby Johnson declared 2020 the year of the man’s voice in the abortion debate.

But pro-choice women will just continue to get mad at pro-life men–just ask Alyssa Milano.

What we need are pro-life men teaching pro-abortion men! Because men have a great deal to gain by keeping abortion legal.

With abortion, a man doesn’t have to pay child support.

With abortion, a man doesn’t have to take time to parent his children.

With abortion, a man can walk away from the relationship at any time.

Children tie a man down.

So what we really need is to convince men to change their thinking–to be pro-life.

According to a study by Care Net, men are the most influential on a woman’s choice. So even though women don’t want to admit it, baby daddies are the biggest influencer.

We need good Christian men influencing spiritually lost men for life and for Christ.

In Christ,

Cheryl

Pro-Life, Not Pro-Political Party

When we rally behind a political party rather than LOVE, we anger everyone in the other party and rally our own, resulting in preaching to the choir. The choir doesn’t need convincing.

Dear Christian Sisters and Brothers,

Let’s choose pro-life posts to share on social media, not pro-political party posts.

When we attack a political party, we put people on the defense and they are less open to our points.

We also make abortion an issue only of the USA when it’s actually a worldwide issue.

Reversing Roe v Wade is an interim step, not the final goal. The goal is to make abortion unthinkable worldwide.

Instead, let’s talk about becoming more Christ-like. If people are more like Christ, then God can lead them to vote in the way that meets His purposes…

Which may not be YOUR purposes.

And, let’s get realistic: The Democrats for Life are likely the ones who will turn the political tide in our country.

When we rally behind a political party rather than LOVE, we anger everyone in the other party and rally our own, resulting in preaching to the choir. The choir doesn’t need convincing.

That’s helpful if we’re running for office, but most of us are not.

We’re running the race for Christ.

In Christ,

The Consequences of Unconfessed Sin

Dear Christian Sisters & Brothers,

This is a continuation of The Spiritual Consequences of Abortion Series, which includes:

Today, we continue to how King David described the consequences of unconfessed sin.

Despite David’s efforts to cover up his sin, the fighting men seem to have figured out that David had Uriah killed given that Bathsheba’s father was one of the mighty men (2 Samuel 23:34; 11:3) and that her grandfather Ahithophel later conspired against David (2 Samuel 15:31).

Certainly, those working in David’s palace knew that David got Bathsheba pregnant (2 Samuel 11:3-4) and tried to fool Uriah (2 Samuel 11:8-10, 13).

Perhaps all the people in Jerusalem figured out David’s sins (because not all rumors are false) but were afraid to say anything.

Until Nathan confronts David, the king thinks he has gotten away with his sins of extra-marital sex and murder (2 Samuel 11:27).

David Confessed His Sins

After Nathan explains things, David immediately takes responsibility and confesses his sin (2 Samuel 12:1-13).

As you know, David sang nearly half the Psalms. I say sang because psalm means song. Did he write them before he sang them, or did he sing them and then write them down? We don’t know.

But after he takes responsibility for what he did, David goes into the Tent of Meeting and sings his confession, as recorded in Psalm 51.

He also sings Psalm 32. In Psalm 32, David elegantly described what happened while he had unconfessed sin:

When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; my vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. I acknowledged my sin to You and my iniquity I did not hide. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”; and You forgave the guilt of my sin. (Psalm 32:3-5 NASB, emphasis mine)

From Psalm 32 and from Psalm 51, we learn what happens when we murder and commit adultery:

  • When we keep silent about our sin, our bodies waste away (Psalm 32:3).
  • The Lord’s hand is heavy upon us (Psalm 32:4).
  • Our vitality is drained away (Psalm 32:4).
  • We yearn to hear joy and gladness again (Psalm 51:8).
  • We can’t wait for our broken bones to rejoice (Psalm 51:8).
  • We want to be renewed with a steadfast spirit (Psalm 51:10).
  • We want to feel the Holy Spirit within us (Psalm 51:11).
  • We want to be restored with the joy of salvation (Psalm 51:12).

More Holy Spirit!

Like King David, once we have confessed we can feel the Holy Spirit within us, and perhaps then other people will see that we have more fruit of the Spirit—

  • love
  • joy
  • peace
  • patience
  • kindness
  • goodness
  • faithfulness
  • gentleness
  • self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)

But there’s more! In Luke 11:13, Jesus gives us permission to ask for even more of the Holy Spirit.

Join me tomorrow when I connect the whole series, explaining how the story of David, Bathsheba, and Uriah relates to the spiritual consequences of abortion.

In Christ,

Cheryl

The “Perfect” Abortion

The potential side effects are serious

Dear Christian Sisters and Brothers,

I was okay right up until my baby died. I remember exactly when she left me because I could feel my face fall. I wasn’t okay anymore. Whatever joy I had left was sucked out of me right along with my baby, and I have been fighting to get it back ever since.

That’s when I became the walking dead. Abortion didn’t just murder my baby, it drained life from my soul—and I didn’t even realize it.

My abortion went so “perfectly” that I could have been the poster woman for the pro-choice movement. I had little bleeding. I only had cramps the day of the procedure but not after that. I was still able to have children. I wasn’t depressed. (I was in spiritual bondage, but I wasn’t depressed.) Everyone around me reacted the way I wanted them to—not telling me what to do but supporting me in my decision. My abortion was just as easy as the pro-choice movement advertises.

But as I’ve learned, that’s certainly not the case for all women. Many post-abortive women struggle with:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • alcoholism
  • drug abuse
  • suicide attempts (Coleman 2011)

Why don’t we tell women the risks to their mental health before they choose?

In Christ,

Cheryl
