Summary: This is for pastors to use as it is my testamony... I end the sermon with a true story of my life... Please present this in Love... You see ProChoice or ProLife is not just a political issue with me it is my life...
Sanctity of Human Life
Tonight I would like to speak about the number 1 misconception in America today… The value of Life… Just how valuable is Life?
On September 11, 2001 over 3500 lives were extinguished . They were future leaders of this nation, doctors who could have saved many, scientist who may have found a cure for cancer, evangelist who may have lead thousands to the Lord and they were loved. Yes on September 11, 2001, evil doers killed over 3500 people.
On September 12, 2001 4000 lives were extinguished and again on September 13 and 14 and 15. Every day in America there are over 4000 unborn babies who’s lives have been taken in what is called pro-choice. 4000 each day, 28,000 each week, 112,000 each month and 1,460,000 each year.
On September 11, 2001 terrorist killed over 3500 people, and the outcry for justice was great, the cry of pain was heard through out our Nation. Swift and accurate justice was rendered. 4000 unborn babies are being taken everyday, but I see no weeping, no anger, and no outcry for justice and no one who cares.
Now some of you think that this is a political issue… I want to tell you that I am neither a democrat or a republican. I have never voted a straight party ticket in my hole life. But I will tell you that I vote ProLife because God is Pro Life.
I believe that it is the one social issue that defines the morality of each and every candidate that runs for office. I will also say that if you voted for a candidate that is pro choice then you need to come to the alter and give your life to the Lord.
Luke give us the words of Jesus himself in Luke 16:13, It states, No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Vence Lambartee, was one of the most successful coaches in the history of Football. The trophy that the winning team get at the super bowl is named after him it is called the Lambartee trophy.
Vence Lambartee started each year’s training camp the same way. He would get his players together in the locker room and grab a football, hold it up in the air and say,
Gentlemen, This is a football. Then he would begin taking each one of them through the basics of the game, throwing, blocking, and tackling.
Ladies and Gentlemen let me introduce to you the Word of God… Please turn with me to the first Book Genesis…
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Each time God created something in Genesis he followed it by saying and it was ______.
God created us in His own image. We are a part of God and God creates every child that is conceived in His image. Even while that baby is in the womb, he or she is in God’s image. What gives us the authority to destroy innocent life? Let’s look at what God told Jeremiah.
5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
God also tells us to Show Love for one another… I am not going to stand up here behind the pulpit and call those that have had an abortion murders or baby killers… That is not the way that Jesus would have done it… Instead of using hateful words let just call those that have made the decision Misinformed Mothers.
The reality is that 1 out of 4 women have had an Abortion… In the Church 1 out of 10 have had an Abortion… I am not here to look down on you… I just want you to know that God Loves you and wants to Forgive you and give you the healing you desire. You just need to Ask Him.
Life… Life is sacred.
So what difference can I make?
So you may be sitting there asking yourself, what difference can I make anyway? I’m just one person. Let me tell you a story.
A young man was walking along the seashore. Far ahead of him, he saw a distant figure: someone who, like him, was walking, but who paused every few steps, stooped down, and seemed to be throwing something into the sea.
His curiosity aroused, the young man hurried forward, his feet awkward in the sand, as he tried to catch up with the man. As he came closer, he saw that it was an old man, and the reason that he would stop every step or two was to pick up a starfish and fling it into the ocean. It was only then that the young man noticed the thousands of starfish that littered the beach for miles, stranded there by the tide.
