Mario Murillo: Why Would Christians Vote for Abortion?

Many believers are still shocked and dismayed. Why did abortion score so many election victories? The answer is clear. Christians voted for abortion. These laws could not have passed without their vote.

Why would anyone who claims to follow Jesus vote to kill babies?

And make no mistake: That is exactly what they did. A fetus is a person—a person over whom God watched while He made them.

Americans Know the Abortion Epidemic Is Evil

“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb” (Ps. 139:13-15, NLT).

Abortion is murder. It is not a right or a family decision. Abortionists love to bring up the cases of rape, incest or the life of the mother. But these account for less than 1% of unwanted pregnancies.

What is the reason for the other 99%? And why does a free and prosperous society need to kill so many of its own children? The answer is that Americans are addicted to a lifestyle.

Colonel Jessup defends himself as a necessary evil.

In their heart of hearts, Americans know the abortion epidemic is evil. But addiction makes it a necessary evil. We see “necessary evil” defined in the movie ” A Few Good Men.” Lieutenant Kaffee is cross-examining Colonel Jessup. Kaffee is trying to trick Jessup into admitting he ordered a “code red”—a violent extrajudicial punishment that killed a soldier named Santiago.

Colonel Jessup defends himself as a necessary evil.

“You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines,” he says. “You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know—that Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives.

“You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall—you need me on that wall.”

Abortion is saying this to carnal Christians: “The death of babies, while tragic, probably saved lives. You don’t want the truth about me. Deep down in places you don’t talk about in church, you need me—you want me.”

Paul Predicted This Kind of Believer

The love of the world got into Christians. “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world” (1 John 2:15-16, NKJV).

Paul predicted this kind of believer.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Tim. 4:3-4).

It is the American church’s dirty little secret. Pastors and preachers turned Christians away from the Bible. They created the moral deformity in believers.

— It began when pastors wanted new members more than disciples. They omitted controversial verses. Finally, they uncoupled Christians from the Bible. Now we have a generation that is so biblically illiterate it does not know how to distinguish good from evil.

— Spirit-filled preachers were just as bad. They didn’t replace the Bible—they added to it. Personal words from God became equal to Scripture. Prophetic messages replaced doctrine and saying, “God told me this” became more common than saying, “The Bible says.”

It has been said that if Paul were alive today the church would be getting a letter. But there is already a letter to the American preachers and Christians who not only support abortion but the entire woke agenda. They are today’s Laodicean church.

Clinging to the Word

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked” (Rev. 3:15-17).

On the other hand, there is the remnant who are like the church of Philadelphia. “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name” (Rev. 3:8, emphasis added).

The faithful church is also issued a further promise for holding to the Bible: “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth” (Rev. 3:10).

This brazen time of celebrity preachers, false prophets and morally confused Christians is helping to destroy America. God will not leave them unpunished.

But those who cling to the Word of God and persevere will not only thrive through the storm, but they will bring in a massive harvest of souls—and miracles—and can save our nation.
