Summary: My message today is not given to support any political party but to challenge this congregation to look at what the Bible says about abortion and why we must choose life over death.
Sermon: “Why choose life?"
Today is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday: Jan. 24, 2010
Thesis: My message today is not given to support any political party but to challenge this congregation to look at what the Bible says about abortion and why we must choose life over death.
As I study the Bible I have discovered that “Life is Sacred:”
God's heart aches today over the 50 million abortions done in this country according to The Alan Gutmacher Institute, a leading proponent of abortion on demand, claims that there have been more than 50 million abortions in the U.S. since Roe Vs. Wade.

All human life is sacred - outline (Adapted from focus on the family)
I. Life is sacred . . . because God made it.
A. Life was and is created by God.
1. Psalm 139:13-16 (quickview) : 13For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.14I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.15My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
4. “For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.” — Colossians 1:16 (quickview)
B. Life is protected by God.
C. Life is valued by God.

I have a dream that this nation will choose life over death:
I am happy to present to you this day, a Pro-life message and a vision for tomorrow. Let us remember that 37 years ago a luminous cloud of darkness descended on our great nation.
We today, face the tragic fact that approximately 50 million babies have been slain by this dark luminous cloud of death. The unborn child lays mangled and lifeless in the waste basket of a clinic. The nation rolls on in its selfish quest but heaven anguishes and cries out in pain, "Stop the insanity".
