Dear Church

As you well know, the United States will soon be entering into the 44th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that institutionalized abortion-on-demand in our nation. For over 44 years, the American church has been largely silent at the cost of over 60 million babies being legally murdered at the hands of abortionists and their clientele. We recognize that abortion is not a political issue or a social issue, rather it is a sin issue and therefore a Gospel issue, and that makes it the business of the Church.

The Abolitionist Society of Sumner County is a part of the larger abortion Abolitionist movement in America and the world. We exist to abolish human abortion in the state of Tennessee through the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, loving our neighbors as ourselves through assistance, and exposing the works of darkness by engaging the culture of death about the reality of abortion. In this, we are obeying Christ’s command to make disciples and teaching them to obey all that Christ has commanded (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 12:30-31; Ephesians 5:11).

We understand the only way that human abortion will be criminalized in our state is if the Church wakes up to the reality of legalized child killing in America, children who have been sovereignly made in the image of God. Dr. John MacArthur sat down with Dr. R.C. Sproul last year to discuss the national tragedy of abortion-on-demand, and stated:

“Our goal has to be to awaken the church!”

We emphatically agree, which is why we are praying for and actively pursuing the awakening of the true Church of Jesus Christ to be a prophetic voice in this culture of death, and to engage in the spiritual warfare of preaching the Gospel and loving our neighbors as ourselves in a society that celebrates the shedding of innocent blood.

As the Body of Christ, we must do more to offer real hope and real assistance to abortion-minded and abortion-determined parents who are enslaved to sin. We, therefore, desire to understand what you are currently doing in your local community to be salt and light in the evil realm of abortion.

The late Francis Schaeffer somberly noted:
Every abortion clinic should have a sign over it saying: “This  facility open by permission of the local church”

We pray you will indeed answer the call to be faithful in obedience to the 1st and 2nd Greatest Commandments to include loving our pre-born neighbors being carried off to the slaughter (Proverbs 24:11).

The Abolitionist Society of Sumner County has numerous resources to help you become active in the abolition of human abortion. We invite you to our official website to begin understanding the work of abolitionism, and pray you will answer the call as soon as possible.

3500+ babies are slaughtered each day of the year, or the equivalent of 120 times that of a Sandy Hook 1st grade classroom massacre. One out of three pregnant women end the lives of their pre-born children. Isn’t over 40 years worth of innocent blood on our hands enough? Won’t you rise up to expose these works of darkness and proclaim the only Hope and Solution to the greatest evil of our age?

We eagerly await your response and look forward to working with you to the glory of our Great God and King, the Lord Jesus Christ.
