Pastor calls abortion “a minor concern”
"Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?" —Lamentations 1:12
New Evangelical Pastor Calls Murder a "Minor Concern"!
A U.S. News and World Report article (December 2003, The New Old-Time Religion, by Jay Tolson, pg. 42) quotes Lon Solomon, pastor of the McLean Bible Church near Tyson's Corner, Virginia (a megachurch that draws up to 10,000 people on Sundays) as stating...
"Abortion and homosexuality are minor concerns in our church. The bell we beat is that we must know Jesus. We are offering people a different and better way to live than secular America offers."
Jonathan Edwards is appalled from Heaven! Abortion and homosexuality ... MINOR CONCERNS? What? Where in the Word of God are we ever led to view sin as a "minor issue"? I just don't understand how any professed "man of God," a pastor over 10,000 people, can call the murdering of over 40,000,000 babies (in the U.S. alone) ... a MINOR CONCERN! Americans have murdered more children through abortions than all of America's war dead combined!!! And yet we praise ourselves as being a nation that "values life." What liars!
Worldwide, hundreds-of-millions of babies have been murdered through abortions. We are surely living in apostate times when new evangelical ministers are calling mass-murder a "minor concern." Abortion is NOT a minor issue, it is cold-blooded murder, and a sin deserving of capital punishment (Exodus 20:13; 21:24). New (neo) evangelical ministers are a rotten bunch of deadbeats, and a plague upon this once great nation. 2nd Timothy 4:2 tells us to PREACH THE WORD! Exodus 20:13 commands, "Thou shalt not kill."
"...Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city." -Mark 6:11
Pastor Solomon states that his goal is to lead people to "know Jesus." This attitude is prevalent amongst new evangelicals today. However, the devils also know Jesus (James 2:19). I had a neo evangelical minister once rebuke me for preaching against sin in his pulpit. He said, "We only preach salvation here." Such deadbeat evangelicals would lead us to believe that God wants us to preach the Gospel; but doesn't want us to offend people by preaching against sin.
How ridiculous! You cannot show me one Scripture in the entire Bible which teaches us to avoid the controversial subject of SIN. Jesus clearly said in John 3:20 that it is people's love for sin that prevents them from coming to the Truth. This is what 1st John 2:15-17 means. It is one's love for the world that often keeps Him from getting saved. Jesus said, "Ye WILL NOT come to me, that ye might have life" (John 5:40). Jesus didn't say, ye "CANNOT" come.
The bottom line is that preaching a corrupted Gospel without preaching against sin often leads people to a false conversion. Thus, America today is infested with false doctrines such as Lordship Salvation, Making a Commitment to Christ, renewing one's life, turning over a new leaf, finding love, etc. None of these experiences will save a person. It is the BLOOD of Jesus Christ which takes our sins away (1st Peter 1:18,19). This EXCLUDES all works, including baptism and devilish speaking in tongues.
Oh how true 2nd Timothy 4:3 is in these last days, "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears." Lon Solomon is scratching people's ears, telling them what they want to hear; when he ought to be preaching THE WORD OF GOD!
America is a Land of Sin and Evil!
Without a doubt, one of the most hideous evils being committed by the people of the United States is abortion! If you think this is an innocent matter, please read the free online book, Abortion Rites (Adobe Acrobat .PDF file). I was speaking with a man this week who said, "America is a righteous nation." I wanted to laugh. I asked ... "righteous?" I mentioned America's abortions, love of pornography, covetousness, sex-tourism, booze, gambling, homosexuality, violence, etc.
I reminded him about Las Vegas, a city so evil that they renamed their city's motto--"SIN CITY!" How vile and wrong! It is sickening! It is NOT surprising that a nation which murders it's own children would glamorize such a demonic place as Las Vegas! Abortion is murder and every pastor, evangelist, Bible-teacher, and Christian in America should proclaim it loudly.
I'm so sick and tired of hearing the Devil's crowd say, "We'll everyone has their rights." No sir, you have NO right to disobey God! You may have the God-given freedom; but you certainly DON'T have any right to murder babies and commit sin! America is a stiff-necked nation. We are sinfully proud and arrogant. Revelation 9:21 reads, "Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries (witchcraft), nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts..." Although Revelation 9:21 speaks of the Tribulation period, this Scripture is very true of many people today. So many people are living in the pleasures of sin, refusing to repent. Some people would rather die than repent, as we see in Revelation 9:21. God will judge those who choose to live in sin and defy His holy Word (Romans 14:12; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:11-15). This is true for believers as well (2nd Corinthians 5:10).
Abortion is NOT a "minor concern," it should be a MAJOR CONCERN for every Christian. Murder is a sin, and abortion is certainly murder. Sucking a baby's brains out, or cutting a child into pieces, or dissolving the living child in acid is nothing less than cold-blooded murder. How could anyone say otherwise? Truly, the abortionists are MONSTERS!
