When a Presbyterian church holds a public celebration of baby-killing, you can be sure that it is possessed by the spirit of the Anti-Christ.
Abortion is baby-killing.
God knows every heartbeat. He sees in ultrasound. Every limb torn from a child’s torso and every skull crushed with forceps… He remembers every single deadly and painful event with perfect clarity.
When people support that in the name of Christ, they are heaping additional coals on their own heads.
The DC Clothesline reports,
First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans held a “Stand with Women” rally in support of a new Planned Parenthood abortion facility in the city.
A statement about the rally on the church website reads:
Recently First Presbyterian opened our doors to a impromptu Planned Parenthood rally that was enthusiastically attended by more than 200 supporters, including Councilwomen Latoya Cantrell and Susan Guidry, both of whom are passionately and consistently concerned about the state of health care in our city. We are looking forward to further events and lobbying our government in Baton Rouge for more funding for mental and physical health services in Louisiana.
First Presbyterian is committed to caring for the bodies as well as the souls of our community and supports the work that Planned Parenthood is doing in our neighborhood to build a heath care center.
Rev. Fred J. Powell, III is the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans. In 2014, Powell introduced the Planned Parenthood abortion chain this way in the church bulletin:
Today, We welcome our soon to be neighbors, Planned Parenthood of New Orleans. They will present a minute for mission this morning. Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast is building a new health center on South Claiborne. Planned Parenthood is a trusted quality health care provider which has been operating a health center on Magazine Street for thirty years. The new health center is scheduled to open in 2015 and will provide well women exams, testing for STIs and HIV, cancer screenings and other related reproductive health services. In addition to health care services, Planned Parenthood provides age appropriate health education, parent education and healthy pregnancy education. Planned Parenthood is a community partner with many health and education programs
By “other related reproductive health services,” the “reverend” was referring to abortion — the deliberate, premeditated murder of innocent, defenseless human beings. Or doesn’t the “reverend” know that abortion accounts for 94% of Planned Parenthood’s for-profit business?
Faith without works is dead. Professing the triune God while using his authority and his name to cover for bloodshed makes your profession of faith a source of judgment rather than a basis for hoping for salvation.
Just as in the case of homosexual marriage, the work of these mainline Presbyterians is to promote the pretense that other Christians are not properly witnessing to God’s truth when they oppose abortion.
