  1. I agree! I would also go a step further and encourage Christians to think of being pro-life beyond conception, birth and childhood. I think of that passage in James you mentioned when I think of the homeless problem in Los Angeles (and all across the world). I think of inmates on death row. I think of the chronically unemployed. I think of the families in Flint, MI who were exploited because they were poor. I think of the Black Lives Matter movement. I think of Syrian refugees being turned away at borders. I think of Muslims in our own country being persecuted for their faith. And so many more groups of people who are in need of love and life “to the full.” Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Always good to be thinking about how we can be the hands and feet of Jesus to our neighbors.

  2. I also agree! My wife and I were foster parents in the State of Texas from 2000 to 2006. We adopted our daughter 2001 and our son in 2006. In between we fostered several babies that were removed due to exposure to drugs. While fostering we received WIC. I remember standing in the check out line at Walmart many times and being berated for using WIC. Being told to get a job. We would always politely tell them we were foster parents. Sometimes they would apologize and say what a wonderful thing we were doing but there were some who just did not care because they just did not want there tax dollars paying for WIC. It is sad to think that some of them may have been christians. I read and see things from my friends and family on facebook who constantly claim that they are pre-life but complain about their tax dollars being used to take care of those less fortunate. I have also heard this in Sunday school from a few of our classmates. You briefly mentioned abuse of these programs and I have also known people who have abused the system. Abuse is going to be inherent in any governmental program. That is why I believe the church, the body of Christ needs to do more for those in need. Just like the church used to do when I was younger. Today most churches are more worried about entertainment, with HD video screens, HD sound and HD lighting and becoming a mega-church. Thank you for your informative and enlightening article. May God bless you!

  3. I too thank God for you and this topic, I heard a sermon this morning on pro-life, from a pastor I love and do respect, but its good to know God and His word for yourself, and rightly divide the word, For God so love the world He gave His only begotten Son for every one. He love that child before birth as well as after birth. Is it alright to love a baby before its birth then kill it? dead is dead before are after birth. your topic answered a lot of my question. As a Christian desiring to do the right thing, to love and value every life before and after birth and do all I can to help everyone no matter who they are or where they come from. My prayer is that as Christians we would learn more about God’s Agape Love, and truly know what it is like to follow Jesus. Thank you and God Bless.
