Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 3-30-2012 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – In Rockford we do have one area of Christian ministry that may well be our highest calling – being actively pro-life. The Rockford abortion mill may be closed but the murder of children in the womb is still legal. Rockford girls and women who are not properly informed of the horrific and barbaric nature of abortion still may seek to kill their own daughter or son in the womb.
Christians are needed to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world in every part of public life in our community. From education, health care, and nursing homes, to caring for the physically, mentally, and spiritually suffering of our community, Christians have the privilege and duty to bring the light and love of Christ to all in need.
PLEASE JOIN US ON PALM SUNDAY APRIL 1, 2-3PM, FOR A PUBLIC PRAYER VIGIL AND PRO-LIFE GATHERING AT THE CORNER OF STATE STREET AND ALPINE. WE WILL HOLD PRO-LIFE SIGNS AND PRAY FOR AN END TO ABORTION IN OUR NATION.
Below are three ways being actively pro-life is the most important spiritual work, Christian ministry, and way we can fulfill Christ’s command to "love one another as I have loved you" in the City of Rockford.
Save lives – Because Christians in Rockford have opposed abortion for 25 years by praying, offering help, and being a public witness to Jesus Christ, hundreds and possibly thousands of human lives have been saved. No ministry in Rockford has a greater life-saving impact than working to save children from being brutally and viciously killed by abortion.
Save souls – Abortion not only destroys lives, but is also destroy souls. When we as individuals and a society are willing to murder the weakest and most defenseless among us, we are sacrificing our souls on the altar of selfishness and thereby rejecting both God and human life. Being actively pro-life means making Jesus Christ present in the lives of people who have been sold the demonic lies of the culture of death. Being actively pro-life saves souls.
Save society – Nothing destroys families and society like the killing of children. Abortion destroys relationships between women and men and between parents and children. Abortion turns politicians and physicians into child killers. A people who are willing to kill their own children will never have peace or a moral, good, and just society. When we are actively pro-life, we bring hope and love to a society that has lost its way.
