There is a place I never want to go, but I am there at least twice a week: an abortion mill, the death center in my hometown. I meet with different groups of pro-life advocates (mostly women). Before praying we talk often about important national and world news: We discuss hopeful events, but also we cover the proliferating evils. The nation continues to collapse on political, social, and economic levels. Moral corruption is widespread. Sex perversion invasive, and now rammed into the curricula of grade schools. About 100,000 sex-trafficked children are bought and sold each year in the United States. About one million surgical abortions each year; and several times that in chemical abortion. Someone remarked: “I do not understand why God allows all this to happen?” Well, that answer is simple: good Christian men do (next to) nothing. Leaders in government, in the Church, and in the community stand feckless before travesties they are responsible to address. Some in leadership are downright corrupt. Brother, what are you doing about it? Sure, prayer is paramount. The Gospel must be preached. Citizens must vote responsibly. But men need to be on the field. Men have the duty to protect life. Are you taking any action? Keep in mind these words of St. Augustine: “Pray as though everything depended on God; work as though everything depended on you.” What efforts are you making to fight the battles around you? Let me suggest: make a weekly statement with your presence in front of an abortion mill. Likely 90% of Christian men live within 20 miles of a Killing Center. And 99% do nothing on a regular basis. How can we expect God to bless our families, our churches, our country if we do not engage? Brothers be at your post. Get on the field. Take a risk. “A man who does not have something for which he is willing to die is not fit to live” (Martin Luther King Jr.). What are you willing to sacrifice for?
It’s your move!
