The Case for Life
Is truth on the pro-life issue discerned by receiving private revelation from God or do we discover it by unlocking the truths of scripture?
Scott discusses the quickly coming The Case for Life Video Course with Leslie Segraves. She recently went through this course and shares ways that it has helped her to interact on the abortion issue.
Scott is joined by Leslie Segraves, the Cofounder and President of 10/40 Connections and recent new speaker at Life Training Institute. They discuss the missions that they do in the 10/40 window where they use the link between abortion and the Gospel to build God’s kingdom.
Pro-life persuasion is not about scoring debate points, but engaging people who think fundamentally differently than we do, but are reachable if we just give them something to think about.
It’s really not enough to complain that your pastor is silent on abortion, if you really want to help him overcome his fears, you must learn to artfully engage the reasons he’s silent on abortion.
It is vitally important that pro-lifers keep their focus on limiting the evil and promoting the good in every election cycle.
Abortion cannot be justified as merely withholding support, it is much more than that. It is intentionally killing an innocent human being.
Which pro-abortion thinkers are right? Is it those who say we are biologically human but don’t exist as a self until brain function is present or those who assert that we are identical to our embryonic selfs but don’t have the same right to life then as we do now.
Human beings maintain identity through time and change. That means you the adult are identical to the embryo you once were. Hence if you are valuable today, you were valuable at the two cell stage.
