Sadness, anger, disappointment, devastation… Emotions you might have felt when you heard about the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade.
A lot of Christians cite the Christian Bible against abortion. Do they understand that women in the Bible are properties of their fathers or husbands? Women in the Bible have no rights. Other pro-abortion Christians also cite the Christian Bible.
Making abortion illegal will disproportionally affect marginalized women: young women, poor women, and women of color. Jesus was always advocating for the marginalized in his life and ministry.
Sermon: From Kingdom to Kin-dom
Scripture: Luke 9:51-62 New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition
When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. And he sent messengers ahead of him. On their way they entered a village of the Samaritans to prepare for his arrival, but they did not receive him because his face was set toward Jerusalem. When his disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?” But he turned and rebuked them. Then they went on to another village.
As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” And Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” And Jesus said to him, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
