The Biden administration has announced its plan to allow the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide abortion access for veterans at its medical facilities nationwide, even in states that have imposed restrictions on the procedure.
The day that Roe v. Wade died, reactions were mixed. Those who long supported Roe’s legal death work mourned the victory for life. For many, it provoked fear, sadness, outrage, and hyperbole. On the other hand, many pro-lifers celebrated. The only truly surprising reaction came from a third group. While technically pro-life, this group viewed the overturning of Roe as a sort of problem, a cause for caution and even sorrow. Some even condemned the celebrations they saw from the rest of us.
Pastors (and Christian leaders alike) must take responsibility for the spiritual health of today’s church and the nation. We don’t need more political correctness; we need men and women filled with the Spirit of God. Leaders, we are not just cheerleaders; we are game-changers. We are called to stir and to convict so that change takes place. Granted, there are many wonderful pastors and churches, but, as a whole, the church has drifted off course. They have lost the compass of truth and the boldness of the Spirit.
