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,

Movie Rated R for Abortion Scenes

Dear Christian Sisters,

The movie “Unplanned” is rated R for scenes of abortion. How ironic is that?

While the filmmakers were certain they were making a PG-13 film, the MPAA has informed them that it will, in fact, be rated R unless all scenes of abortions are removed or altered.

Check out the story by The Hollywood Reporter.

My opinion? If your children are receiving sex education, then they should see “Unplanned.” I will be taking my pre-teen and teen boys.

Be sure to check out the movie trailer, and put March 29 on your calendar as movie night.

In Christ,

Cheryl

Watch Your Words as You Comment on the New York Late-Term Abortion Legislation

Remember how Jesus talked to the Woman at the Well?

Dear Christian Sisters,

The news that New York has legalized late-term abortions once again has everyone in an uproar. I just ask that you comment on articles with love and logic.

I wasn’t feeling well yesterday, so I sat on my couch and read all sorts of comments on news posts while my friends sent me private messages asking me for advice on how to respond to people.

I can’t help but get involved in the conversation because I have so much to say about what abortion does to women, and it didn’t take long for someone who disagrees with me to comment in return.

Except that she didn’t just comment—she yelled and swore. I did not. I responded with logical explanations.

Her comments devolved into twisting my words. I politely pointed out what I really said and pointed her back to my original comment. I also asked that she talk to me without swear words and without telling me where to go.

When she couldn’t argue with me anymore, she left the conversation.

That’s what I want to encourage you to do. Stay in the conversation but do so gracefully and with love. My words will stay with that woman. My words were seeds. I pray that the Lord will water and grow those seeds into love for the Savior.

Our goal is to love others over the life line.

I was loved over the life line by my husband Russ and by Christ, as you’ll soon read in my first book, ReTested.

Abby Johnson, author of the book and soon-to-be-released movie “Unplanned,” was loved over the life line by her husband, parents, and the 40 Days for Life. It can be done, and we should be the ones doing it.

Remember how Jesus talked to the Woman at the Well? He spoke truth to her, and she didn’t recoil but instead was honored as one of the first to be told directly that He is the Christ.

As Christians, we are called to be Christ followers. That means doing like He did. Let us love them so much that they want to become pro-life Christians.

In Christ,

Cheryl
