Churches: ‘God is pro-choice’, pro-life movement a ‘demonic agenda’

“The good man from the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil man from the bad treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of his heart his mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45). Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the bloodstained case Roe vs. Wade decision of 1973, we have seen the hatred and murder that lurks in people’s hearts come out of their mouths – and sadly, that even includes some “churches” and “pastors”.

A recent article highlighted some sickening quotes from church leaders that I believe can be compared to God’s words about an unrepentant Israel through the prophet Jeremiah:


For my people are foolish; they don’t know me; they are stupid children;
they have no understanding.
They are “wise”—by doing evil!
But how to do good, they do not know. (Jeremiah 4:22)


These church leaders, from various denominations across the United States, said things like:

We pray for all who associate with those in need of reproductive health care. . . We pray for the loss of lives yet to come due to forced deliveries and illegal abortions. . . We pray for those who disagree on reproductive rights.

This prayer completely ignores the “loss of life” of every unborn child in an abortion!

This prayer completely ignores the “loss of life” of every unborn child in an abortion! This thought of “reproductive health care” might be applauded by our culture, but it certainly does not please the Creator who “formed my inner parts” and “wove me in my mother’s womb” (Psalm 139: 13) and who declares that the children are a gift from him (Psalm 127:3).

If men could get pregnant, that wouldn’t even be a topic.

This, of course, is a ridiculous argument because: (1) the morality of a situation does not depend on whether it is a man or a woman carrying the child (morality is determined by God and his Word); (2) many, many women and men are against abortion, so this is not a “men versus women” debate—it’s about the morality of killing helpless babies! ; and (3) it assumes that all men would be perfectly fine with abdicating responsibility for a child they helped create, which is not true. Many men have the integrity to do the right thing and to love and welcome their children into the world.

All guys, let’s all schedule appointments for vasectomies. . . It’s not just about reproductive rights… It’s about voting rights, it’s about civil rights, it’s about human rights.

What about the civil and human rights of a child poisoned and dismembered in its womb? (And is this pastor really encouraging his congregation not to have children because some women are no longer allowed to murder their children in certain states? How despicable! That also seems dangerously close to encouraging or to give a “free pass” to promiscuity among men in his congregation!)

The killing of unborn children is part of a demonic agenda to destroy those created in the image of God.

This same person also called the pro-life movement “the start of a demonic agenda” and called on the church to “stand aside”. But he has this backwards – the killing of unborn children is part of a demonic agenda to destroy those created in the image of God. It is nothing more than a sacrifice to the “god of self”. This is no different from pagan cultures that sacrificed their children to the god Molech.

And the church has ‘stepped out’ – the vast majority of pregnancy care centers are run by Christians who love women, men and their precious babies and provide real help, like free nappies , cribs, baby clothes, parenting classes, ultrasounds, counseling and more to anyone in need. But apparently giving real hope and help is “demonic”, while killing children and doing nothing more for mother and family are good things. What bad eyesight!

A final quote from the article:


One of the clergy at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta told the congregation that he once viewed abortions as killing babies – that is, until he prayed for a “deeper understanding” of the issue.


“Some see abortions as babies being killed as I once did before praying for deeper understanding,” he said, later adding that “laws that restrict and take away freedoms are never dubious. side of Jesus and a God of justice”.


Well, God certainly didn’t give him that “deeper understanding.” God cannot deny himself, so he will never contradict his written Word, which says, “There are six things the Lord hates, seven things are an abomination to him.” . . hands that shed innocent blood” (Proverbs 6:16-17). And the God of justice will hold accountable those who took away countless unborn babies’ God-given freedom to live!

These “pastors” would do well to heed God’s warning:


Woe to those who call evil good
and badly,
who replaced darkness with light
and light for darkness,
who put the bitter for the sweet
and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)


For me, the following verse sums up these “pastors” well: “God is not to be feared before their eyes” (Romans 3:18).
