I have never had a lot of interest in working the political side of the abortion issue. Not that I thought it was an unworthy endeavor, I simply thought that the work didn't match my abilities. I'd kind of built up a list of reasons why I was not interested. Naturally, that is not how God works.
As I was recently reading the book of Jonah and thinking about the suspended status God had me in, I thought, "Yeah, God sometimes sends people to do things they don't want to do -- and he could do that to me."
Not long after that, God was hammering on me to start a take-no-prisoners, anti-abortion lobbying group.
"Okay," I said, "If God wants me doing it, I will LEARN to like it."
I took up the name formerly used by a friend, Believers Against Child Killing (BACK -- see the website at www.backlife.org) and started to add this to my work. Soon I will be tormenting POLITICIANS in the name of Christian love -- especially those who claim to be "pro-life" but never do anything.
Mainly, I will start by insisting that pro-life politicians vote NO on that budget here in Oregon that contains tax money per year for abortions. Currently, that's $1.5 million each year. I'm sure there will be a whole lot of squirming going on.
I've never done this before, but that has never stopped God from telling me to do something before. It should prove interesting.
