“It’s A Matter of Life...” by Denver Sallee
The subject of abortion is often avoided by Christians when they hide behind the false claim that the discussion of “politics” has no place in the Church. Never allow anyone to frame the argument by portraying abortion as “politics”.  To accept this lie falls into the satanic trap set by the enemy. It never belongs in that category. It is and always will be about pure evil and we must call it that. It is murdering a human being created by God in His own image.  It is evil and is a legitimate subject of discussion for Christians.
