Dead to Sin Alive in Christ

Blessed are the merciful - feeding a tiny kitten

Blessed are the merciful

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.  Very much like the golden rule.  Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Except in this case, the one doing unto us is God.  So if we show mercy to other people, then God will show mercy to us.

Like faith and believing is Jesus, action is an integral part of mercy.  We’ll see that just saying, “God have mercy on you”, isn’t what Jesus is talking about.  Nor is praying for someone and walking away. 
It’s about doing something.  Helping.  kindness or good will towards the miserable and the afflicted, joined with a desire to help them.

stop abortion

If you stop abortion – so what?

We’re here to talk about the “so what” part.  Let’s assume that all the big if’s line up perfectly.  Total bans on abortion are passed for the entire country.  But even that’s not good enough.  There’s Mexico.  Canada.  If you’re rich enough, some country on some other continent.  Or there’s old illegal, and probably much less safe, option of doing it in secret.

But even if all of that could somehow be stopped – So What?

Here’s a more serious question for Christians, myself included.  If all that did happen, if all abortions could be stopped, would you be happy?  Would you consider it mission accomplished?  No more abortions.  None.  Zero.
