Why Minister at a Killing Place?
Why Begin Ministering at an Abortion Clinic?
Because the Bible tells us to!
If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength! Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, "But we knew nothing about this," does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.
Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?
Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but those who keep the law resist them.
Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these."
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
Ezekiel 33:31, 32 My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to listen to your words, but they do not put them into practice. With their mouths they express devotion, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. 32 Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice.
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices – mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law – justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
I John 3:18
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
