ERLC Says Pastors Don’t Need to Tell Women Abortion is Wrong, Downplays the Sinfulness of Abortion

The ERLC recently published an article that practically mirrored the world’s sentiments surrounding “women’s rights” and their proclivity toward supporting abortion. Downplaying the sinfulness of abortion, the author of this article, Phoebe Cates, says since according to statistics, 66 percent of women already know that abortion is wrong, we don’t need to remind them from “street corners” or even from “pulpits.” All we need to do is have “compassion.”

After explaining that her own mother had an abortion following the murder of her other child by her fiancée, she goes on to justify her mother’s actions. “I cannot fully convey her loss, nor can I begin to explain mine,” she writes, “My siblings should be here, but they aren’t. There may have been no stopping my sister’s death, but if Roe v. Wade hadn’t existed, my brother would still be here.”

Blaming her mother’s grievous sin on Roe v. Wade, she goes on to explain why we don’t need to tell people that abortion is wrong.

So, you don’t have to post internet memes and videos, display bumper stickers, or make rude comments to tell me how terrible abortion is. Nor do you need to shout it from street corners or pulpits—I know. My mother knows. Over 66% of women know. 

I agree that the problem isn’t that they don’t know — they do know. They know it’s murder and they know they’ve sinned against a holy God. But to conclude that we shouldn’t point that out to someone who is facing God’s judgment is not only not compassionate, it’s biblically absurd. Show me one place in Scripture where Jesus, Paul, or the other Apostles ever stopped preaching against sin.

So, believer, are you speaking life, or are you speaking death? When someone has had an abortion or is considering one, are you telling her how terrible she is, or are you pointing her to eternal life?

How would Jesus have approached this? Can we name one time that Jesus ever pointed to himself as the savior without first showing the person their sin? No, we can’t. To speak death is to speak life — there can be no life without death. With the death of Jesus Christ, we must die to ourselves and be buried with Christ. We must acknowledge and confess our sin to God and repent of it. How can we do that if we’re suppressing the sinfulness of it?

We are to bring the light of Scripture — the whole law of God — into conflict with sin. This is how the gospel works. 2 Corinthians 4:2-3 tells us to dump the ways of the ERLC and The Gospel Coalition — to instead, speak openly and clearly the truth without hindrance,

But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.

It is the gospel and the work of the Holy Spirit to convert someone. The ERLC has proven itself to be inept in proclaiming the gospel and has re-written the gospel to include a pragmatic approach to creating a Utopian society whereby everyone is well-fed, has economic equality, and never made to feel guilty about their sins — unless they’re straight, white men, of course.
