Violence & abortion

It takes more courage to respond to a threat with kindness and compassion than with anger or violence. Kindness hinders violence. It’s hard to be violent to people who are showing you heart-felt compassion.

Acts of violence are attempts to dominate and control someone. To threaten people is to demonstrate insecurity. When human life isn’t respected, valued, and treasured, violence cripples a culture.

Laws don’t stop post-natal violence. They won’t stop pre-natal violence either. Violence can only be overcome by sacrificial love.

Showing pictures of what abortion does to a human fetus isn’t conservative or liberal. It’s factual.

The difference between infanticide and abortion is merely the definition of the kill zone. Partial birth abortion straddles the zone.

If pulling a living, human fetus apart isn’t an act of violence, nothing is. Abortion is an act of violence against the most innocent form of human life. Most people believe that child abuse is morally wrong, yet many of the same people believe that prenatal abuse is a good thing.

The Soviet Union fell apart without civil war. If America insists on falling apart, let’s follow their example and be nonviolent.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
