If you have not already read this entry by John Ensor on the Desiring God blog, please take a minute to do so.
I have lingered over these sentences in particular:
The blood-guilt of abortion festers under the surface of all Christian endeavor. It needs lancing. It needs to be outed. It needs to be called out by name, confessed by name, and brought under a gospel that declares that there is no forgiveness for the shedding of innocent blood except by the shedding of innocent blood.
Yes, Jesus is the answer to this incredible, horrible reality we live with. The sin-cleansing blood of Jesus can cover even this, and set people free.
And we need to make sure that disability gets included in this ‘outing.’ There are Christian people who would say they are against abortion, but become ambivalent about it when the child is known to have a disability.
Ambivalence will not win the day. Ignorance will not win the day. The truth of God’s sovereignty over all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ – there is hope there!
Thank you, John Ensor, for another piercing, helpful, God-centered commentary.
