Last week Pastor John tweeted this:
Wave 1: Catholics say No to abortion. Wave 2: Evangelicals flood the land with CPC’s. Wave 3: Blacks and Latino’s bring it down.
Which prompted this excellent post by Jon Ensor: The Third Wave of the Pregnancy Help Movement. That post will help make sense of Pastor John’s tweet.
Mr. Ensor references the good that came through an ultrasound, and I agree that is a good thing in the evidence of thousands and thousands of unborn children who have been spared destruction because of ultrasounds.
But I will continue to raise this caution: when disability is found through ultrasound, babies die, including when the parents are Christians. We must bring the clear message of God’s sovereignty over all things into the ultrasound room when hard things are discovered. Parents deserve to know who God is in the midst of what many people believe are hopeless futures, for their children and for themselves.
That is why I pray there will be a fourth wave that buries the abortion industry for good. And I can see it possibly coming through the community of people with disabilities, their families and their churches that God uses to demonstrate his sovereignty and goodness and care in all things, including disability and disease, for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ.
Lord, please make it so!
