If you haven't seen Snider live, he is definitely worthy. He's a truth-speakin' man and there aren't that many of them left. Saw him here in Phoenix and would again there in MT, but won't be over 'till June. Have a great time. I know you will!
Instead of standing up for the life of a child (born or unborn) it sounds to me a lot more about condemnation and punishment of a woman who dared to have sex and become pregnant. If you are really about the children why not shelter each newborn in your church and take on the responsibility of bringing them into your homes with your children and raising them up as good Christians such as yourselves.
Here’s the ‘big’ question. Whose caring for these children after they’re brought into this world? Every day you find them dead by the hundreds at the hands of people who didn’t want them but were prevented from terminating a pregnancy. How many hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent combing through trash dumps for the body parts of some of these throw away children.
Mostly I hear people moaning about the taxes to support the welfare programs and entitlements that have been established to assist these children. Also the cost of prisons to house these kids if they go wrong because there’s no structure in their lives.
But you’ve stood on the side of God huh? I say show me! I’ve got no dog in this fight … I’ve never had kids, and have no one in my family who isn’t happily married with beautiful, loved children. Those kids are blessed. But I’ve so often listened over the years to groups of “well-meaning” Christians claiming the right to make decisions in matters when they haven’t got a clue of what’s behind them.
And I’ve “yet” to see one of them step forward and say to the mother or parents, “If you can’t or won’t care for your child, I’ll take it in. No matter what ethnicity. No matter if he/she has some genetic or physical disorder that will bankrupt my family. No matter … because you see, I know what God wants for that child. And so I’m willing to take on that responsibility no matter what.” Show me that and maybe I’ll reconsider my point of view on this. I’m just saying …
