They’re taking the name of the Savior in vain.

On November 9 at 5:00 p.m., several clergy gathered at Planned Parenthood in Columbus, Ohio. They call themselves the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. They advertised their event as “Holy Ground: Blessing the Sacred Space of Decision.” Faith leaders and guests got together to celebrate abortion. With testimonies, prayers, and blessings, they invoked the name and the favor of God upon providers, staff, and patients.

One of them explained, “My moral duty is to speak in support of a woman’s sacred right to make decisions for herself. Christian Scripture tells of Jesus doing good and never judging or shaming anyone.” They used words from John 10:10 to claim that what takes place within allows women to “have life and have it abundantly.” Last year they did the same thing at a clinic outside Washington, D.C. A pastor there prayed, “God of grace and God of glory, keep them safe here and keep them strong, and may they always know that all that they do is for Thy glory.” They sprinkled water over the parking lot and in each room of the facility. “We sanctify this space, and we honor this place as holy.”

What if somebody believes them?

Abortion brings the heart-breaking guilt and soul-crushing grief of ending life. Its physical and psychological repercussions ripple through families and communities for generations. This evil can destroy those who take part in it. It undermines the commands and promises of God. Abortion embraces a mindset that militates against the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which proclaims He has created, redeemed, and called every human life to be His eternal treasure. These false prophets are making shipwreck not only of victims but even of survivors’ faith, salvation, and eternity.

Is it too late to declare the Savior has a better way? If we recover our motivation, if we receive education, could we change hearts and save lives? If we rise to action now, could we displace this diabolical deception with the compassion and courage God’s grace gives? With your help, we can!

Other Ways to Give Now

Owen’s Mission is a very special project of Lutherans For Life. The goal of this project is to honor Jesus by presenting a set of Touch of Life fetal models to every Lutheran elementary and high school in the country. (That’s 1078 schools affecting 139,000 students!) We want students to understand the God-given value of each life from the moment of conception. We want students to be motivated by what God has done as our Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier that gives value to life. We want students to value themselves and to value others as persons because of this God-given value.

This Life Sunday, Consider an Offering for LFL
On January 20, 2019, many Lutheran churches across the country will observe Sanctity of Life Sunday. As part of this, dozens of congregations will collect an offering for Lutherans For Life (LFL). If yours is one, we thank you and praise the Lord! The number of churches and church auxiliaries participating continues to go up. In 2018, 8.5% of churches helped LFL. This support is also vital since 95% of our funding comes from individuals and churches. We have no subsidies, tuition, camping fees, insurance, or government reimbursement, etc.

Of course, if January 20 is not a workable Sunday, churches are free to select any one they wish this winter or any time during the year. Also, if your congregation does not collect door offerings, gifts that are budgeted or directed by a mission committee, endowment board, LWML, etc., are most welcome. Send gifts and offerings to:

Lutherans For Life
1101 5th Street
Nevada, IA 50201-1816
