Laura on the Albert Mohler Show on Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Yesterday I posted this about abortion and the conviction I have to be more admantly pro-life in my posting, etc.

In keeping with this theme, I am re-posting a link of my wife, Laura, on the Albert Mohler radio show (she was my fiancee at the time).

Listen to it here.

    Have you heard of Pandeism? Pandeism is a religious position that combines the keys of Pantheism (God is everything) and Deism (God created the Cosmos and ceased to interact with it). The conclusion of Pandeism is that God created the Cosmos by becoming it, and does not interact with it because God has become it and is existing as everything.

    If God is everything, as Pandeists believe, then every abortion is an abortion of God. This does not in itself make abortion a bad thing as every slaying of an animal for food is equally a slaying of God, even when one animal (a wolf perhaps) kills another. The moral element in Pandeism is the amount of suffering caused or prevented by the act. The abortion of a seriously deformed child would likely prevent more suffering than it causes and refusing to do so would be immoral as an overall infliction of suffering against our creator. The abortion of a fetus that can not feel pain (or only feels a pinch and then life is at an end) may be no more significant than stubbing ones toe or spanking a misbehaved child or getting a B instead of an A on a test. But having an abortion for wholly selfish reasons in a way that inflicts unnecessary pain on the child – in the pandeistic world, therein lies the wrong.

    Danny,
    I am glad your zeroing in abortion. Bringing the issue into the light needs to be done. One question for. Jerry Falwell said right before the 04 election,

    “It is the responsibility of every political conservative, every evangelical Christian, every pro-life Catholic, every traditional Jew, every Reagan Decocrat, and everyone in between to get serous about re-electing President Bush.”

    According to Falwell (and many others) it was the obligation of evanglical Christians to vote for Bush. Do you believe the same should said about voting for McCain, perhaps because of your strong views on abortion? It seems to be Mohler and Moore feel this way. And if so do you (and say pastors or Christian leaders) have a responsiblity to tell others Christians must vote Rep.?

    Hey Brandon,

    Let me answer your question first, and then give my rationale. I think that this is a huge election for the pro-life movement. Likely, as Obama himself said on Wednesday night, “Roe v. Wade probably hangs in the balance”. Because of that I think it is morally incumbent upon Christians to vote for the pro-life candidate. I know it can be unpopular to say that, because people note the faults of McCain and company. “What about justice?” Or “What about the war?” or “the economy.” I just think it’s simple math. If one believes a fetus is a child, a living human, then abortions are the cause of 1.5 million unjust murders every year in the U.S. There isn’t another issue that even comes close in terms of importance, if one agrees that abortion ends an innocent life. I really think if you add up “social justice” issues, and mismanagement of the war, and quality of life due to the economy, and any other issue, you still don’t even come close to the wrong done by the single issue of abortion.

    Still, I am hesitant to say that pastors should demand Christians vote in such a way. It may seems inconsistent, but I think that the only issue in America more important than abortion, is lost souls. Therefore, I think that if endorsing a certain candidate creates a stumbling block for the Gospel, pastors/Christian leaders shouldn’t do it. They can’t expect the lost to think like the found. It’s a difficult issue, on that front I think. Maybe I’m just completely inconsistent 🙂
