Is Your Church Pro-Life?

By Jared Olivetti - Posted at Gentle Reformation:

Is your church pro-life? Almost everyone reading this blog would say “Yes. Of course.” If, by “pro-life”, we mean that a church has a stand against abortion tucked away in its confession somewhere and that they pray against abortion on the Sanctity of Life Sunday, then yes, many protestant churches could be called pro-life.

But what if we saw the calling to be pro-life as something more foundational to our identity as gospel-preaching churches? What would it look like to be–in the biggest possible sense–pro-life?

The assumption of this post is simple: human life is precious beyond calculation because God made it in His image and that all churches ought to be pro-life.

The argument of this post is simple: the American church should stop treating the pro-life issue as primarily political and national and narrow. And we should start seeing it as primarily relational and local and broad.
