THE TWO MODES OF ABOLITION
Abolitionists must make every effort to engage equally in works of assistance and agitation. In this we simultaneously fulfill our servanthood mandate to be salt with our prophetic mandate to be light.
AGITATION: Destroying Speculations; Undermining Misinformation; Awakening the Apathetic; Unsettling the Indifferent; exposing evils, not just abstaining from them.
Abolitionists make a practice of bringing the darkness of abortion out into the light of day. This means putting the horrors of abortion on display before the happy-go-lucky world. This means speaking out about spiritual destruction which abortion causes to men, women, children, the family, and the entire fabric of our so-called modern society. This means exposing the abortion industry as a multi-million dollar business built on the blood of oppressed people. This means exposing the way the abortion “issue” is used as a political football by lobbyists on both sides of the aisle to insure their party’s power and place of influence. This means pointing out the fact that most churches do little to stand against abortion and that most pastors are terrified to speak out against child-sacrifice from the pulpit.
ASSISTANCE: Helping the helpless; Caring for the Abandoned and fatherless; Practicing “True Religion”; Showing Compassion for those caught up in the culture of death; helping to restore those who have committed the sin of abortion to find forgiveness, healing, and redemption in Christ
Abolitionists must not simply stand-up and speak-out against the injustices they seek to abolish. They must also give their lives to helping those caught up in the culture that contains those injustices. This means caring for the numerous children who were not destroyed by abortion yet born into a life of maltreatment, neglect, abandonment, and abuse. This means opening our homes to the fatherless, and our hearts to the forsaken through adoption and foster-care. This means assisting women with financial, emotional, physical, and spiritual counseling and care. This means doing to others as you would have them do to you.
