AN OPEN LETTER TO AMERICA’S PASTORS
By Coach Dave Daubenmire
August 6, 2015
Please share this letter with every pastor you know.
Please forgive the impersonal nature of this communication, but I know of no other way to reach you. I would love the opportunity to speak with you one-on-one, but chances are very slim that you would take my call. Sometimes it seems safer to hide one’s head under the covers than to address the monster under the bed, but this nightmare is real. There is a Devil loose and he is destroying everything that is good in this nation. As much as you would like to say that it’s not your “calling”, the truth remains that you have been given the responsibility of shepherding God’s flock. Please keep in mind that they are HIS sheep and He has entrusted them to you.
The videos of Planned Parenthood’s diabolical harvesting of baby body parts has exposed the true nature of abortion for all of the world to see. The unborn child in the mother’s womb is indeed a baby, but we’ve always known that.
It is not a choice, it is a child—a child created in the image of the God that you claim to serve. If you don’t speak up on behalf of God and HIS children, you are a willing accomplice in the slaughter of those children. Silence is consent. Child sacrifice will only continue as long as our pulpits permit it.
It’s time to stop hiding behind slogans, and I’m sure that you know them all. “I will not politicize the pulpit…I will not get involved in political issues…my District office will not let us talk about it…the government doesn’t permit us to speak about political issues from the pulpit.”
Newsflash, Pastor…murder is not politics. Abortion is not healthcare. God’s children are being slaughtered in their mothers’ wombs—a fact that even Planned Parenthood dares not deny.
Planned Parenthood has developed a used body parts business that would make your local auto salvage yard envious. But the issue here is murder, not body parts, since they must kill a baby before they can harvest the parts.
What will it take for you to say ‘enough is enough?’ If “men of God” remain silent at a time like this, who then shall we expect to speak up for the babies? Why should we expect a politician to care about baby murder when our pastors are so indifferent about it? For God’s sake, open your mouth…literally!
Pastors who remain silent and fail to lead the charge to defend these little ones are surely an abomination to God. Speaking about abortion on Pro-Life Sunday does not placate God’s anger over this travesty. I can assure you that supporting the Republican Party will never win you favor with the Lord.
Jesus told us that no man can serve two masters. You can’t serve both your denomination and the Lord. Will you fight valiantly for the unborn or will you bow to your big tithers who don’t want to hear about it? Will you risk rocking the boat in support of the unborn or will you continue to placate the post-abortive women in your flock by remaining silent? Will you stand on the solid rock of truth or will you choose the quicksand of compromise? You can’t serve two masters.
God will not be mocked. He sees your heart and He knows your desires and convictions. You will be held accountable for your willful negligence if you fail to do what you know to be right.
“What do you want me to do?” you may be asking. “What can I do about ending abortion?” If you can’t answer that question, then what on earth are you doing in the pulpit? Perhaps you should step down and go get a job at Wal-Mart.
Sharing the Gospel and protecting innocent lives should be the foremost goals of your ministry. The Devil is seeking to devour God’s children. The war is real and real lives are being lost. Sticking your head in the sand will not make you less accountable to a holy and righteous God.
God is not impressed by the size of your ministry. He doesn’t care how adept you are at juggling programs or how many old folks you visited in the nursing home. You will stand naked and defenseless before Him for your apathy toward His children.
Jesus warned us in Matthew 19:14 “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:14 says, “Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.”
Little potential Christians are being slaughtered in their mother’s wombs. Women’s lives are being destroyed by the scourge of abortion. Planned Parenthood has been exposed for what really goes on in those abortuaries.
If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?” Prov. 24:11.
Planned Parenthood is on the ropes. The end of abortion is within reach. The world is waiting for “the church” to show up. Will you answer the call? Will you stand in the gap? Will you speak with your feet? Please get involved at www.protestpp.com.
