Get EQUIPPED: Redemptively Overcoming Abortion in the Church
The church in general has not done the best job in the past in addressing pregnancy and abortion. Many women and their partners have secretly sought abortion because the church did not feel safe or they did not feel they had the resources to give birth and parent a child. This, no doubt, contributes to the fact that the majority of abortions done on women who identify with the Christian faith. Get EQUIPPED is the course that every pastor and congregation needs to effectively make the paradigm shift that is drastically needed to overcome abortion in the church and local community. Instead of trying to save the babies by changing laws, our greatest focus as the church must be on changing hearts. While standing up politically for the rights of the unborn is also essential, it cannot be the church's greatest aim. The enemy is doing his greatest work in the church and among Christianity. That is where we need to re-strategize and begin fighting the battle within the church.
Get EQUIPPED will provide both pastor and church member with the information they need to deepen their understanding of God's Design, Mankind's Perversion, and The Church's Choice. We will delve into God's design and purpose of the human body, and His Word on sex and life. Then we will learn our American history of the "bait and switch" of immorality, the trauma of abortion on women, and then abortion's collateral damage to literally everyone. Finally, we will learn about the choices the church has. Will we become proactive and redemptive or remain reactive and silent? Will we respond from God's heart or our own desperation to overcome this evil in the world? Will we defend or demolish the false arguments?
This book is deeply informative and highly motivating to make the changes that are needed in our churches. Then, we can address these difficult issues in the world with integrity instead of hypocrisy. This book is in conjunction with a video teaching series in an online learning platform.
