Why Are Christians So Pro-Life?

On Sunday, November 27, I am presenting a message entitled, “Why Are Christians So Pro-Life.” Because of the importance of this message, I am sharing my notes. Perhaps they might assist someone in their search for the truth on this highly polarizing topic of abortion.

I essentially take this message and cut it into two halves. The first half represents why the science of biology leads us to the position of bring pro-life. While the second half shares Christianity’s convictional values regarding life and its value. It is during this later portion of today’s message that I will share our church’s conviction on the issue of abortion. More than anything, my hope is that this message celebrates life.

With apologies in advance, please know that these notes represent my unedited sermon notes as I configure them for my purposes. I hope many will benefit from these notes in their present unedited format.

Why Are Christians So Pro-Life

If you’re motivated to help this important cause, here are three organizations that you can assist:

1. The Mid Cities Crisis Pregnancy Center: http://mcpregnancy.org/. Our church supports this important ministry.

2. Mercy House is a ministry that houses, supports and ministers to single pregnant woman.

3. Human Coalition is a ministry serves to offer abortion-minded women another choice by pointing them to Crisis Pregnancy Clinics. They use technology in “abortion dense areas” and are talking to around 40% of women who are abortion-minded.

Please consider using your time and resources to celebrate life.

Moses’ Humane Society – Deuteronomy 25-26

Read Deuteronomy 25-26

“You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain” (25:4).

It is a common practice in many American cities to see humane societies in strategic places. Even in our city of North Richland Hills, we have a beautiful new human society in the center of our town. Often, TV ads call for the proper care of stray animals or the need to adopt dogs or cats. Oftentimes, people love their animals more than their pets! But it is not just modern society that cares for the treatment of animals, for even God gives His people careful instructions on the welfare of work animals.

Oxen were used to both plow fields and tread grain. Often, you will encounter a threshing floor in the pages of Scripture; here, the oxen would tread the grain in such a way that a heavy sled could be driven over it. As a result of the oxen’s hard work, they were permitted to eat some of the grain as their pay.

Today, believers in Christ treat animals with care – not because it is fashionable, but for at least two reasons. First, God Himself commands us to care for the welfare of animals (see Proverbs 12:14). Are we to ignore God’s instructions? Second, animals are a part of God’s creation and we have the responsibility of caring for all He’s created (Genesis 1:28).
