I come away from the SBC annual meeting generally encouraged. We have a lot of work to do, but I believe our convention will persevere through the trials that lay ahead. So long as we stand on the inerrancy and sufficient authority of scripture. And as long as we proclaim, with power and confidence, a clear gospel of repentance, redemption, and reconciliation through the atoning work of Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
Grant us the ability to detach from ourselves in order to see the bigger picture. Give us the boldness to speak against sin and injustice of any kind.
Abortion is a sin because it terminates the life of a person created in the image of God for relationship with God, worship of God, and obedience to God---all for the glory of God.
