As long as people keep “praying” to human civil government for an end to abortion (and therefore for perverted justice), it will never be abolished. The only thing that can abolish human abortion is for the people to repent of being a part of the bureaucratic political world that exercises authority over the people while promising them benefits.
The true Gospel sets us free from these evils, for they are a judgement upon those who reject God to be their magistrate, finding favor in human rulers to be their false gods. Seeking to enact legislation for any reason, but especially on either side of the abortion debate, is an act of hatred towards your neighbor by the simple fact that you desire the State’s authority to enforce policy onto your neighbor, requiring his bondage through taxation for the system to function. True Christians were already granted a perfect Kingdom at Pentecost in which abortion is abolished and even criminalized without authority exercised over each other. The message of the Gospel to statists and authoritative religion is to repent and to stop wasting your time with the ways of this “world” and start seeking the kingdom of God instead.
If one desired to evangelize the 501c3 churchy culture, they dare not imagine that reaching the “clergy” is an efficacious way of obtaining an audience with the “laity”. It is pretty much accepted in both instinct and experience, that reformation of churchianity and repentance from dead works must be a bottom-up endeavor, in spite of the power centers who have a vested interest in not just maintaining the status quo, but being the status quo.
But how ridiculous is it when professing abolitionists forget this hard-earned lesson and continuously endeavor to place their faith in gaining the ears of kings and rulers and Benefactors who exercise authority? They continue headlong into destruction, tempted by the glamor of political pursuit like rats in a maze, looking for an easy way to obtain their goals, through the sloth of socialism by the might of its institutions. The desire for power corrupts judgment. The increasing faith in magistrates debases minds. Continuing to chase the Nicolaitan pipe dream like Balaam and Korah, even after experiencing repeat calls to repentance, self-examination and doctrinal purity is reminiscent of another scene that professing abolitionists are used to:
Going into the ballot box even after being called to personal responsibility and pure religion is akin to the stubbornness evidenced in self-deceived mothers who continue to walk into the abortion clinic after those on the sidewalks outside point out that she knows better and pleads for her reconsideration.
Abortion is the greatest symptom of a culture full of debased minds. Greater than chattel slavery. Greater even than homosexuality, which is the example Paul gives as a symptom of society trusting in magistrates to begin with. When men no longer desire to be ruled by God in their hearts and minds, they will appeal to democracy to determine their morality, including the literal murder of prenatal children.
Take that fact, and realize that abortion and homosexuality were just as common in Christ’s day as they are in ours, but that the Gospel he preached is focused on proscribing the need for magistrates to rule over society and use its taxes to do so. His message is that sin begets sin begets sin. Idolatry (trusting in magistrates and their institutions) and covetousness (welfare and ‘justice’ at the expense of your neighbor’s income) and sloth (failing to provide for your family to prevent them from turning to Egypt during times of famine) begets bondage (social contracts, taxation, heavy legal burdens) which begets sins like homosexuality and abortion (not needing a strong family because you have a strong civil bureaucracy to provide for you through fiat currency and compartmentalized professions within an infrastructure making strong families and the practice of biogenesis expendable.)
Couple these two realities with the fact that the Israelites described Pharaoh’s provision for them during their sloth in the face of famine as a ‘good thing’ even though it meant their slavery.
These ideas joined together make the ‘good’ that magistrates do little more than the same pragmatism that abolitionists are used to condemning pro lifers for. Evil so that good may come? The road to hell is paved with that logic.
To more pointedly address the problem, federal government, like all human civil government is meant to be a tyranny. Its purpose by God is to make those within its grasp to cry out for putting their faith in them to begin with. Sin leads men to bondage, and this is why taxation is justice. The rise of tyrants is their very sin coming home to roost. Nothing can redeem them from it unless Christ provides a kingdom through His Gospel, and their repentance is thereby rewarded.
Any good that false gods do is in spite of themselves and Satan has every right and ability to use it to further human bondage. And he will. Because the rebellious are encouraged to cry out to God for salvation and righteousness, and not some governor or politician.
The natural solution to the abortion holocaust is this:
Repent and begin preaching the true Gospel. Preach it at the abortion clinics, in the culture of death, on street corners, and even in front of the churches, converting hearts to facilitate the jurisdictional exchange into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Start coming together in congregating abolitionist societies characterized by service and freewill offerings to love your neighbor as yourself. Begin to keep the weightier matters, including establishing justice through interpersonal accountability.
Be networked together by an existing alternative government of servant and bond-servant ministers, recognizing that the governments of this ‘world’ rest upon the shoulders Satan and take on his image to oppose and lead astray those made in God’s image.
In conclusion, we all are to “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness“, and not seek to rule over one another through the legalism of pagan legislation. This message cannot be made any more simple, yet the vast majority of professing Christians get it so wrong.
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15)
