For many people, hearing the word “church” evokes memories of a beautiful, historic, old building in their city, perhaps even right in the very neighborhood where they live. However, the church is much more than a building, be it old or new. The Church, God’s Church, is a unified body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 12:12; 18-20). Its members meet regularly (Heb. 10:25) to worship God through songs (Col. 3:16), to be trained in the word of God, the Bible (2 Tim. 3:16-17), and to be encouraged by the fellowship of their brothers and sisters in Christ (1 Jn. 1:7). The Bible also teaches that the risen Christ Jesus will one day return for His church (1Cor. 15:51-58; 1 Thess. 4:13-18), which is currently in preparation (Eph. 5:26-27) to be forever joined with Him throughout eternity.
Making a Difference for Life
As long as God’s Church remains in the earth, I believe He expects its members to be positively impacting the world around us, each diligently working to make a difference. One crucial topic on which the Church should clearly be taking a stand is on the issue of life. Life is precious and contrary to the anti-life forces around us, it should be highly valued and passionately protected.
Should the Church be a Voice for Life?
I strongly believe God is calling His true Church to stand up, amid the culture of death, and be “a mighty voice for life.” On this core principle, He is calling His Church to begin leading rather than lagging; to speak clearly rather than sputter incoherently, or not speak at all. God’s Church is a mighty voice for life! Therefore, the Church should regularly be found making a positive impact concerning the issue of life, rather than making excuses, afraid to touch it.
Protecting Black Life’s New Brochures are Available
Protecting Black Life has developed a new brochure entitled: God’s Church – A Mighty Voice for Life. Chocked full of verifiable facts and inspirational scriptures, this new brochure is designed to inform Pastors, Priests, ministers, and church members about abortion’s disproportionate impact on the Black community. It is a tool intended to help provide a practical, simple way of sharing an urgent message of life with others. It is our hope that this brochure will help to empower “God’s Church – A Mighty Voice for Life” to competently and courageously communicate the message of life.
