Maybe you're a little confused about where I stand on AHA. Especially after seeing the headline or hearing about my previous blog post regarding AHA's Church Repent Project and how some AHA folks carry it out at Local Churches.
However, if you actually read the(VERY LONG!)post you should have remembered how I started when I said:
"Let me next be clear on what this is not. This is not a bombastic screed against AHA or even the Church Repent Project as a whole. If you are looking to find an article from an AHA hater, emotionally blasting them and calling them a cult, you won’t find that here.
In fact, much of the work being done now in the United States, to the glory of God in the realm of gospel based outreach to those seeking abortion, is because of, or as a result of the influence of AHA. I believe God has and is using them to wake up the church in America to our need to love God and our neighbor as ourselves. If you want to see abortion abolished and criminalized here in America, you would be well served to examine much of the excellent information and resources available at: www.abolishhumanabortion.com
If you have seen or heard of strong bills being proposed in your state seeking to abolish abortion completely in your state. Bills that would treat it as the crime of murder God tells us it is in the Bible. A crime the framers of our U.S. Constitution would undoubtedly agree with. You can be assured it was either started or strongly promoted by Bible believing Christians in AHA.
I applaud and join in on many of the same fronts as AHA. I do so because God has used folks in AHA to help disciple and bless me. Much of my personal repentance and growing abortion evangelism and interest in legislative activity is due to God working in me through AHA. AHA folks are on the frontline like few others in all realms of the fight against abortion.
No matter where you come out after reading this article, it is not my intention that you come out angry at or seeking to further distance yourself from AHA folks. I believe you may indeed be able to learn much from them.
So, please pray for God to move on folks in AHA in this one area. I think they err here to the hurt of much of the good work they are doing for the glory of God, the good of His people and for the cause of lost souls and babies in danger of daily imminent death. May God move to strengthen the work of AHA and bring unity in His Church through this, not more division."
SO WHAT'S THIS POST ABOUT
So, while I still disagree with Church Repent Projects at local churches in the manner they are performed as discussed in my post, I appreciate much of what AHA promotes and does. Especially Project Frontlines.
I have taken part in quite a few of those projects and can tell you they are some of the most heated and confrontational yet Gospel saturated events you'll ever experience. If by God's grace you go.
Yes, you too may get the news and/or the police to show up when you are there. You'll probably get threats and a lot of hate and irrational argumentation. We sure have. However, you probably won't get on Tucker Carslon. Sorry. We haven't either.
But here's the thing. God in His grace and providential sovereign timing, chose these kids, this project, at this school, on the new Tucker Carlson show, at his new time, in the previous slot where Bill O'Reilly had the greatest ratings ever on cable television, to spread Gospel truth and expose sin and depravity for His glory and the good of His people!
So, Christian what should you do now? I don't know. I don't know you or where you stand on the abortion issue. I pray you have or are ready to repent of an inactive stance on this abortion holocaust young Conner Haines speaks of in the video. I pray you are moved from a simple anti abortion belief to Bible based and gospel centered action. May we all be so moved all the more day by day.
Maybe you've been part of the Pro-Life movement and have never investigated what it means to be an Abolitionist or how you and your church could be involved working to end abortion now. Here's two websites for those exact purposes:
abolishhumanabortion.com and endabortionnow.com
Do you know what the difference Conner is talking about when he spoke about not being Pro-Life but an Abolitionist? The issue is about the difference between unbiblical and admittedly non Christian, Pro-Life incrementalist, abortion regulation, and Bible based, Christian, immediatist, abortion abolition. If you'd like to hear a teaching I did on the issues you can find it here: https://youtu.be/nzjr7bEEcGM
Or you can get a whole bunch of information through various videos of outreaches, Project Frontlines events, as well as some great teaching on several related subjects at: savesoulsandbabies.com and click the "Videos" tab.
So friends, if you've read this I hope you have been encouraged, convicted, and spurred on to love and good works for the glory of God, and the good of His people. May God bless you as you pray, study, plan, and then go out seeking to saves souls and babies!
