The following article is from the Christian Post. Sadly, too many of our clergy feel or felt the same as he and I truly believe it is why over 61 million children have lost their lives, just in the USA. There is nothing political about a child, born or preborn being sacrificed through abortion or infanticide. This is a moral and human rights issue, rights that were endowed by our Creator for all humankind.
WASHINGTON — Popular megachurch pastor and author David Platt, who at one point was the youngest megachurch pastor in the United States, says that there was a time in his life when he needed to “repent” for not preaching enough on abortion as a younger pastor.
“There was a point as a pastor when I just kind of stayed away from abortion [because I’d think] that’s a political issue,” Platt, the lead pastor of McLean Bible Church in Vienna, Virginia, and author of Radical, told CP. “But I got really convicted. Far before it is any kind of political issue, it is a biblical issue that God speaks really clear about the value of life.”
