But pro-life issues still are not the most important issue America faces.
Neither is it our
Economy. The most important issue
in America today is our rebellion against God (see Christian President, and the continuing fight over pro-life issues are one of the
major symptoms of that rebellion.
Focusing on the symptom instead of the root cause risks unintended idolatry
because Satan cunningly tempts Christians to consider the causes and the people
close to the Lord, like Mary, Peter's supposed heir and pro-life issues
as important as the Lord Himself.
If pro-life issues were most important to us, how will we respond if
Satan offers to overturn Roe v Wade? Indeed, if Satan offers, "All this
I will give you," [Satan] said, "if you will bow down and worship me," (Matthew
4:9) should we bow down to Satan?
The most important issue for Christians must remain Jesus and His
honor. We exist to glorify and honor Jesus. If made to choose between His honor
lives of millions of innocent babies -
even our own lives - we must still obey the "first and
great commandment" and choose the Lord:
"Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing
Him, and saying, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus
said to him, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all
your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And
the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’"
