An article byFrederica Mathewes-Green is excellent, making two great points. The first, abortion is being overlooked as an issue. The second, the baby-boomer generation will be judged for abortion.
A friend and I were talking about sins and big issues a few days ago. When we started to list a few I began with divorce. He was surprised but continued with more “relevant” ones, like abortion and gay-marriage (speaking of, gay marriage may be the new abortion in terms of the issues our culture struggles with). I think he was surprised because of how “old” and “worn out” divorce has become. Green suggests that abortion is on that same road. She hopes it will be picked up later and reviewed, as do I. Truth always wins. It just depends on how long we have to wait until God uses our preaching, working and love to bring truth to victory.
As for the baby-boomer generation being judged – yep, they sure will be. And our generation will be judged for gay-marriage. But we must continue to preach, teach, work and love toward the truth because it is still possible that our judgment, especially by God, will be for the good we have done in over turning our cultures stance on divorce, abortion and gay-marriage.
