Pro-Life Issues

Pro-Life Issues

"The most important issue facing America are pro-life issues... That's what I vote on."

Pro-Life IssuesPro-life issues, including abortion, indeed are very important issues. America murders (see Abortion Is Murder) more unborn babies today than the number of Jews the Nazis murdered during WWII (see Abortion Holocaust), and even kills Born Alive Abortion babies.

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 America In Decline, and the continuing fight over pro-life issues are one of the major symptoms of that rebellion.

Focusing on the symptom rather than the root cause risks unintended idolatry because Satan cunningly tempts Christians to consider the issues 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 the 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?

For example, Muslims are pro-life, as are the Mormons. Muslims deny that Jesus is God, while Mormons claim Jesus is the brother of Satan. Voting for a Muslim or a Mormon may support pro-life issues but also supports their blasphemy and therefore betrays the Lord (see Prominent Christian Leaders).

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 and the 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.’" (Matthew 22:35-39)
