You see, it would be absolutely unchristian to talk about abortion as if the last word is death. We can talk about abortion because we are the people who know that the last word is life. We are the people who know that in the great story of what God is doing, there is a reckoning that is coming. There is no safety for anyone – abortionists, a woman who has an abortion, a doctor who participates in abortion, murderers, adulterers, liars, robbers, children who are disobedient to parents – you know the Bible’s catalog. We are all there, and we are all nailed.
But that isn’t the last word. The last word is that that sin was nailed to a Cross. And the last word is life because we know that history is hurtling towards an end, an end that includes a reckoning with no safety for those who do not know Jesus Christ as Savior. But for those who come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, we experience the forgiveness of sins.
