Here’s an exercise in contrasts: Elizabeth Amy Eaton, presiding bishop of the ELCA (the liberal Lutherans) Tweeted this past week, “While the leaked court draft does not represent the Supreme Court’s ruling in its final form; nevertheless, it contradicts this church’s teaching. This church teaches that abortion and reproductive health care, including contraception, must be legal and accessible.”

This past Lord’s day, we at St. Mark had the privilege of welcoming the Godinhos into membership, and baptizing their 4 precious little children. One of those little children, Eli, had a few warning signs during pregnancy and the doctor asked them if they were considering terminating the pregnancy. Of course, as you know, they chose instead to trust and obey God instead and the Godinhos, as well as our congregation, are so much richer for it.

While the false church of the liberal Lutherans teaches that the right to murder babies must be legal and accessible, we instead follow the ways of the Lord of life and are blessed beyond measure.

Proverbs 1:15–16 seems applicable, “My son, do not walk in the way with them, keep your foot from their path; for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood.” While they make haste to shed blood for their own comforts, we uphold the law of the Lord!
