In all his local, regional, and national areas of spiritual and Biblical leadership, Dr. Larry Lewis was once Senior Pastor of St. Louis’ Tower Grove Baptist Church, on the north edge of Tower Grove Park.
So he was understandably in opposition to the St. Louis Board of Aldermen voting 17 – 10 to make the city of St. Louis “a sanctuary city of abortion.”
Important related Scriptures …
“You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made … your eyes saw my unformed body…” (Psalm 139: 13, 14, 16)
“The word of the Lord went to Jeremiah saying, ‘Before I (God) formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you a prophet to the nations …’” (Jeremiah 1:5)
Five times God Himself uses a pronoun of personhood … “you” … while Jeremiah was yet in his mother’s womb.
To intentionally destroy a human creation of God is remarkably serious.!
And yet, those who have had an abortion … and to those who encouraged it and took part in conduction it, including those who have profited from it … God’s forgiveness awaits. “But God demonstrates his on love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8),
For those who have claimed the wonderful love and forgiveness of God, the pain may still be there, but “… the blood of Jesus his son, purifies us from all sin.” (I John 1:7) (All Means All!!)
