Self-righteous "faith leaders" pray for blessings on abortion clinics

5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:4-5).

On Monday, the United States Senate voted down a bill (Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act) that would have enacted a federal ban on abortions after 20 weeks. The 60-vote procedural hurdle failed by a tally of 51-46. Currently, the U.S. is one of only seven countries - joining China, North Korea, Vietnam, Canada, the Netherlands, and Singapore - in allowing this murderous procedure to take place after 20 weeks. For those who argue scientifically that at this point in a pregnancy term a baby is simply a clump of cells as a fetus, take a look at this Tweet below. It is a cover of Life Magazine prior to Roe vs. Wade. The baby in the photo is at 18 weeks.

If this was all not bad enough, certain "faith leaders" gathered Monday at various U.S. abortion clinics to pray not for this genocide to stop, but to instead pray for blessings on these clinics that perform late-term abortions.

According to this morning's Washington Post, "when clergy gather at an abortion clinic, it’s usually in protest, outside the building. Rarely are they huddled inside the clinic, not to condemn but to bless the procedures that happen there.

Yet that was the Rev. Carlton Veazey’s task as he led a prayer in Bethesda on Monday. “God of grace and God of glory, in whom we move and live,” he said, as he opened a prayer for the well-being of the doctor and nurses who facilitate abortions at a clinic here and for their patients. “Keep them safe and keep them strong. And may they always know that all that they do is for Thy glory.”

Thy glory, really? When did murdering babies by the millions glorify God? Last I checked, our heavenly Father, whom all children are created in his image, is clear on when life begins. I guess Rev. Veazey must have skipped over Jeremiah 1:5 where the Lord states, "before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you."

If Rev. Veazey's brainless prayer was not enough, he continued.

“The Supreme Court affirmed a woman’s right to choose an abortion. But before the Supreme Court did it, God had already done it, because it affirms a woman’s moral agency."

Wow, apparently Veazey knows a different God than I do. Maybe Veazy also missed Psalms 139:13-16. "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Not to be outdone, Rev. Cari Jackson also prayed. “We give honor to all of these women who choose to come to this space,” said Jackson, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ who has served in United Methodist and Presbyterian Church USA congregations. “We sanctify this space, and we honor this as holy.”

Abortion clinics are now holy? Jackson, Veazey, and the other clergy that were at these abortion clinics may believe this, but Christ does not. In living out our lives, we can follow worldly wisdom that is false or Godly wisdom that is true. We must examine every thought and deed by the truth of the Word and no other standard.

As Russell Moore puts it, “children torn apart in abortion facilities have no names, but God knows their names. They have no resting places but Jesus grants them rest. I am reminded that we have to say things to one another that human beings shouldn’t have to say. Mothers shouldn’t kill their children. Fathers shouldn’t abandon their babies. No human life is worthless, regardless of skin color, age, disability, economic status. The very fact that these things must be proclaimed is a reminder of the horrors of this present darkness. Human life bears inherent dignity because human life reflects the life of God himself.

It is my prayer that those women who have been lied to by these demonic schemes know that no sin has more power than the cross of Jesus Christ. That they know that no one is unforgivable or unlovable through Jesus. Also, I pray that the bondage and culture of death pushed by these "faith leaders," members of Congress, Planned Parenthood, and others in the abortion business will end.

3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. https://www.bible.com/bible/59/2TI.4.esv

This is another example of simply tossing the infallible Word of God because they do not like what it has to say. It is a message that treats God like a genie in a lamp that we rub on, so he can pop out and grant wishes. Then we can live however we like, form "my truth" and suffer no consequences. It is a rejection of God at its very source. A denial of absolute truth and morality and a false belief that we can just do whatever is convenient. These people are no different, and actually worse, than those that openly reject God. There are several "woes" that Jesus directed at these types of "ministers". I will pray for the abortionists also, not for blessing, but for Divine condemnation to realize the evil and error on their ways for willfully taking innocent life for convenience and profit. Only the power of Christ can change those hearts.

Rom. 1:28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Seems to be the world we live in these days. I'm nearing half a century on this earth, and while people have always tended toward selfishness and self-centeredness, there always seemed to be something in our culture that helped curb it or at least keep it contained in my days as a teen and young adult. As a nation, even if we personally engaged in thoughts or activities we shouldn't, we still celebrated those who seemed to live above the fray. And even though leaders would still do things that should shame a man, the people still looked at the office and the office holders as people who should aspire to the positions they held.

Now it seems all restraints are off. We don't just acknowledge selfishness, we consecrate it. We don't just recognize death, we laud it. Humility and sacrifice seem to be the target of ridicule. Get your 15 minutes. Make a video of it. Scream, shock and demean. It's the American way.

Wow, wow, wow, this creeps me out! If, "...all that they do is for Thy glory", and "...we honor this [place] as holy", as the "reverends" prayed, then they for sure are praying to Moloch.

Calling yourself a Christian and being a Christian are two different things. If you don't believe and attempt to live by the bible you are not a Christian. We all sin, but as a Christian we should choose not to sin. Praying for sinners for success in continuing their sins in not a Christian act.

I fear for these people when they have to stand before God.
