I was a bit rattled today at Planned Parenthood. A young girl came out of her car and immediately started screaming at us shouting profanities.. She looked at me and shouted “it’s my body, my choice” – I calmly told her it wasn’t her body that it was a baby. She shouted profanities, and said it’s inside my body shifting the argument from it’s her body to it’s something inside her body. She then shouted you are all going to hell, and then shouted she’s going to hell to after which told us to go suck a you know what. It all happened so fast. Mind you the only word I got out was it’s not your body, and why don’t you come talk to us.
Despite this I was reminded about how Jesus says that apart from him we can do nothing, and that apart from Him we are dead in our sins and trespasses. I was also reminded that Christ teaches us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. I don’t know if this young girl was going into murder her child but God’s Word is truth about all of us and our sin nature.
6 For to be [a]carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the [b]carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
