Spiritual and Moral Bankruptcy

It is absolutely inconceivable that four of the nation's mainstream denominations continue to be major supporters of abortion. Calling abortion a "God given right," they are lobbying to make sure abortions are covered in any health care bill. According to an article in Baptist Press, "The Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), United Church of Christ, and the United Methodist Church's General Board of Church and Society are all members of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, a pro-abortion rights organization that took part in a Dec. 2 "Stop Stupak" rally in Washington D.C., urging the Senate not to include the pro-life Stupak amendment in its version of the health care bill."

The slaughtering of a baby is repugnant beyond words. For churches who claim to represent Christ to endorse and support this sin is abominable. It demonstrates the degree to which the conscience can become numb to any amount of wickedness. Paul warned of religious men who live in immorality, "having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" (2 Timothy 3:5). These people don't even have a form of Godliness. What hope does a nation have when not only has it fallen into absolute moral decay, the church has climbed into the cesspool with it.

We need to continue to pray for a great awakening in our generation. And we also need to remember that while apostate churches often gain the headlines the true church is alive and well and prospering. God always has His faithful remnant. May we press on in confidence and may our voice be clear concerning the honor and glory of God.
