A firm foundation: Christian theology & abortion Print E-mail
Written by Presbyterians Pro-Life   

babyhandsmPresbyterians Pro-Life has been around for almost 4 decades. It is appropriate that we take a little time for renovation. A look at our biblical foundation expressed in this 1995 publication, reveals a distinctly Presbyterian view of abortion. It is time to build something new upon it that helps us to equip more Presbyterians to live out the tenets of our faith by loving and promoting human life in hands on ways.

The vision to which Presbyterians Pro-Life calls the church is founded upon the central doctrines of the biblical faith of the church universal for two thousand years. We have not introduced something new into the theology of the church by opposing abortion and calling the church to be a community in which the love of God is demonstrated in concrete ways. Rather we speak and act on the basis of the theology which the church has claimed as its own for centuries.

I've heard many sermons on Maundy Thursdays. Themes usually focus on preparation for death and separation or the theme of servant leadership revealed by Jesus' action in washing the feet of his disciples. This year my pastor, Rev. Dirk Lesnett, began by defining "Maundy" as from the root word "command" or "mandate." His sermon theme was love, specifically, to "love one another."

Copywrite Fotolia.com | File: #118151400 | Author: MarekDeanna Wallace has a story of rescued lives--maybe you have a story that should be told as well.

Jesus often taught the crowds using parables. A well-told story engages not only our minds, but our emotions. Often it is the stories illustrating a pastor's sermon that have the most effective impact in our lives for positive and lasting change. Presbyterians Pro-Life would very much like to hear and amplify your stories that relate to the preservation and protection of human life.
