This is what I will do in response to the news that Planned Parenthood is selling the body parts of aborted babies. As a Christian there are other things I can do. I can cry, which I did when I heard the audio of one of the undercover videos (I have not watched any of the videos and do not plan to because of how disturbing they are). I can vote for “pro-life” candidates in political elections, which I always do. I can continue to write and preach against the sinful murder of abortion. I can continue to hope and pray that abortion will be outlawed once again in the United States. I can contribute to the efforts of organizations that try to prevent abortions. I can hope and pray that those who are part of the murderous abortion industry will repent and seek forgiveness for their evil deeds.
But the most important thing to do is to continue to hope and pray and live for the coming again of Jesus Christ. The videos remind us that this world (the U.S. in particular) is full of evil. And they remind us that we are helpless to do anything to stop or eradicate the evils of this world. But that does not mean that as Christians we are hopeless pessimists. Though we are helpless God is not. We cannot avenge all evil. But God can, and He will (Rom. 12:19) in the day of Jesus Christ. I am thankful for the knowledge that God is pleased to save sinners by bringing them in repentance to Jesus Christ. I am also thankful for the knowledge that God will not allow any of the evils of the unrepentant world to go unpunished. The unrepentant murderers who callously kill and make merchandise of babies will get their due when Jesus returns. Then, and only then, will the world be made perfect.
Come Lord Jesus, come quickly!
