This title and letter from our pastor appeared in our Sunday bulletin a week after the Plan B abortion pill entered the marketplace for all ages during the first part of June, 2013.
He starts out quoting a reading from Zechariah. This scripture readings “Present us with our Lord Jesus telling His disciples that He is going to give His life for us and that we are going to learn from Jesus how to live in Him by following Him. The cross is probably not something that most of us think about often or in detail.”
“Last week our government announced that it is allowing the Plan B abortion pill to enter the marketplace for all ages. The implications of this decision are far reaching. For example, do parents have any say through medical or educational institutions to stop this from being given to their children? The physical, psychological and spiritual damage will continue to affect entire generations. This will not stop until we say ‘enough’ “
“My point is that it will take a great courage to look at the devastation caused bgy artificial birth control and abortion; to look on ‘the ones that we have pierced’ (he is referring to what was done to Jesus) through our inaction. In the most basic language, it is just awful.
Please have a look at this web site: www.lifesitenews.com and put in the search words ‘studies’ or ‘statistics’. There are a wide variety of studies. Many are done by some of the most respected medical institutions in the world. How is it that we have not been told about the huge increase in cancer rates, to name only one of the variety of physical side-effects. How can this happen?”
He ends his letter this way:
“I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and petition” God has a plan. You and I must follow Jesus.”
