"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." Romans 12:21

Abortion has been a poison to our American culture and cancer to our collective soul. You just cannot senselessly murder cand a half million unborn babies every year for 44 years without it taking a toll.

In my previous post I mentioned just six reasons you should oppose abortion and there are easily a dozen others.

So, what can we pro-life advocates do to oppose this evil, destructive and divisive practice?

In my message Sunday I will mention four things believers can do that will oppose the toxic spread of this vile practice.

1) Care for your soul

The battle against abortion is essentially a spiritual battle and can only be won with spiritual weapons and resources.

If you have miscarried a child, if you have lost an infant to death or if you chose to have an abortion you might find comfort in knowing the soul of your child is in heaven with Jesus.

By the grace of God through Jesus Christ, you can see your child again or meet your child for the first time IF you care for your soul. If trust Jesus to be your Savior for the forgiveness of your sins and if you then walk in obedient fellowship with Him, your soul will be ready for an eternity in heaven.

2) Contribute prayer and financial support to pro-life causes

When was the last time you prayed for the ministry of the Choice Pregnancy Center? It is on the front lines of the battle for life!

Today you will have the opportunity to take a baby bottle home with you and fill it with spare change or bills to raise money for this vital ministry.

3) Continue supporting pro-life candidates

I don't know about you but I would never knowingly vote for a political candidate who is pro-choice. Any candidate who is not outspoken in his support for life does not deserve my vote!

Do your research and inform yourself on this vital moral issue before you go to the polls this Fall!

4) Challenge their lies with truth

The pro-choice abortion movement is driven by lies and distortions. It has powerful political people pushing it because it is a giga-billion dollar industry trading of the souls of the most innocent among us.

You will have very little success in changing any of their opinions. They have hardened their hearts and closed up the minds to any moral appeals.

But person by person, friend by friend, family member by family member you can use your influence to confront them with the awful truth about abortion and perhaps change some minds.

Watch this:

Don't become weary in the task of doing right. Don't be overcome by the predominance of evil in our society. Overcome evil by doing the right thing every day every time!

You won't save everyone but you make save a few!
