WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.040 --> 00:00:03.000 I just thought of a new phrase that I I'm going to start saying. 2 00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:07.190 That's a good one. God hates the hands that shed innocent blood, but 3 00:00:07.349 --> 00:00:10.869 he gave you those hands to cradle and hold your precious child one day. 4 00:00:11.509 --> 00:00:16.750 I Am Yours, I am yours, I am yours, and me, 5 00:00:17.109 --> 00:00:22.780 Lord, I am yours, I am yours.

We appreciate you guys joining us. Daniel 10 00:00:51.880 --> 00:00:57.399 Parks and I'm here as always, are, as often, with Vicky Cassiorg 11 00:00:57.640 --> 00:01:00.960 say hey, Vicky, everybody, and we're blessed to be able to bring 12 00:01:00.000 --> 00:01:03.670 you these podcast episodes. We hope that you guys are blessed by these episodes. 13 00:01:03.709 --> 00:01:08.349 We produce them to encourage you, equip you, challenge you, get 14 00:01:08.390 --> 00:01:14.349 you thinking and even help us to think things through. A lot of these 15 00:01:14.390 --> 00:01:19.459 podcasts come out of us just talk about these different subjects, talking about even 16 00:01:19.500 --> 00:01:22.700 how we can improve the way that we do our outreach at abortion centers. 17 00:01:22.700 --> 00:01:26.859 US really kind of been the main focus of this podcast. Is a Gospel 18 00:01:26.900 --> 00:01:33.129 centered outreach at local abortion centers and again really focused on equipping you guys who 19 00:01:33.129 --> 00:01:38.250 are out there, but also other people in other prolife ministries. We certainly 20 00:01:38.290 --> 00:01:45.769 would invite anyone into this podcast community to listen to this podcast. We would 21 00:01:45.769 --> 00:01:48.799 encourage you guys to share this with anyone you think that would be blessed by 22 00:01:48.840 --> 00:01:55.159 it and with that will jump right into our subject, and it's a training 23 00:01:55.280 --> 00:01:59.640 and equipping subject. Maybe you'll encourage you guys. I do want to mention 24 00:02:00.000 --> 00:02:06.230 that we have a website. We mentioned it often sidewalks for Lifecom, and 25 00:02:06.950 --> 00:02:09.110 we put a lot of content out there. We put basically, I think 26 00:02:09.229 --> 00:02:15.139 every week Vicky writes an article and a lot of times that's what we base 27 00:02:15.219 --> 00:02:21.300 our podcast episodes on as the article that she wrote and we put those articles 28 00:02:21.340 --> 00:02:24.580 up. You can go on sidewalks for lifecom and just click on equipping articles 29 00:02:25.259 --> 00:02:29.780 and you can find those articles and also now we have on that website, 30 00:02:29.900 --> 00:02:32.770 just put up recently a link to the podcast. So we have a separate 31 00:02:32.810 --> 00:02:38.129 podcast website. If you get a Gospel centered prolifecom. That's the podcast website. 32 00:02:38.729 --> 00:02:42.849 Eventually, maybe we'll kind of merge those two things together, the two 33 00:02:42.969 --> 00:02:46.840 really helpful resources, and I don't say that just because we created them, 34 00:02:46.240 --> 00:02:50.479 I say that because they are their helpful. I don't care who created it, 35 00:02:50.680 --> 00:02:54.840 they're helpful websites. The website for the PODCAST, you can act should 36 00:02:54.840 --> 00:02:58.080 go on. If you get a Gospel Center Pro Lifecom, you can go 37 00:02:58.159 --> 00:03:00.229 there's a search bar there. Put whatever keyword you want to look for. 38 00:03:00.389 --> 00:03:04.069 If we did a podcast about it, it's going to pop up. It's 39 00:03:04.069 --> 00:03:07.789 going to show you what podcasts we've done the cover that subject that have that 40 00:03:07.830 --> 00:03:13.259 keyword in them. The sidewalks for life website was really helpful because there's kind 41 00:03:13.259 --> 00:03:15.500 of like a training module in there. Is, matter of fact, on 42 00:03:15.580 --> 00:03:20.180 the very front page of that. If you click start training now, it'll 43 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:23.740 kind of bring you through a training process, just some bullet points and stuff 44 00:03:23.259 --> 00:03:27.330 and even some videos that you can watch. That we think will be a 45 00:03:27.370 --> 00:03:30.129 blessed you and we're going to continue to put content out there. Yeah, 46 00:03:30.210 --> 00:03:32.289 and even I'm doing some things and thinking through some things to help them prove 47 00:03:32.409 --> 00:03:38.169 that and even maybe even to keep folks here doing this ministry connected with each 48 00:03:38.210 --> 00:03:42.759 other. So looking into some ways to do that. But with that, 49 00:03:42.879 --> 00:03:46.080 I do want to mention that sidewalks for life website, there's an article that 50 00:03:46.159 --> 00:03:49.479 we put out just recently a blog pose, and I can't remember exactly in 51 00:03:49.479 --> 00:03:53.400 the name. I think it has to do with calling out, phrases to 52 00:03:53.520 --> 00:03:57.830 call out or something like that, but we'll try to put a link to 53 00:03:57.949 --> 00:04:01.030 that article in the show notes to this podcast episode. You can get there 54 00:04:01.750 --> 00:04:09.110 because in that blog post is actually a pdf that you can download that has 55 00:04:09.189 --> 00:04:13.219 some of these phrases and we're going to share some of those kind of oneliners 56 00:04:13.300 --> 00:04:15.860 things that you call out as you're there at the abortion center. Now. 57 00:04:15.979 --> 00:04:18.899 Months ago we did do an episode about calling out because we went through our 58 00:04:18.980 --> 00:04:24.930 whole training and kind of broke down each kind of each component of our training 59 00:04:25.009 --> 00:04:30.449 that we do for our sidewalk counselors across the nation and broke those components down 60 00:04:30.449 --> 00:04:32.370 into episodes, individual episodes, and we talked about calling out. But we're 61 00:04:32.370 --> 00:04:39.079 going to get specific today in some some really powerful phrases and calling out. 62 00:04:39.079 --> 00:04:42.199 I don't know, I'm kind of dominating right now and let you talk at 63 00:04:42.199 --> 00:04:45.199 all Vicki, you know, I'll make up for it later. Yeah, 64 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:46.959 okay, we'll let you make up for it later. But yeah, we're 65 00:04:46.959 --> 00:04:50.319 going to focus on calling out, some of the phrases, some of the 66 00:04:50.360 --> 00:04:54.230 things you can use more. Talking about calling out at the abortion center, 67 00:04:54.470 --> 00:04:59.629 we're talking about the scenario in which you're on the public sidewalk, the abortion 68 00:04:59.790 --> 00:05:02.870 center is fifty feet away from where you're standing, like what we are in 69 00:05:02.910 --> 00:05:09.459 the trobe and windover and even plan parenthood. It's vehicular traffic. So there 70 00:05:09.500 --> 00:05:11.899 are people parking their cars in the parking lot. We can't be in the 71 00:05:11.939 --> 00:05:15.300 parking lot. We've got probably ten, fifteen seconds, maybe a little longer, 72 00:05:15.339 --> 00:05:19.139 maybe a little less, from them walking from their car to the door 73 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:23.889 of the abortion center to call out, to raise our voice and to be 74 00:05:24.009 --> 00:05:28.329 heard. Now we're not talking about what we've been accused of, screaming at 75 00:05:28.410 --> 00:05:31.329 people, right, and so go back and listen to the calling out episode 76 00:05:31.329 --> 00:05:35.319 that we did, because we talk about using an inviting tone. We talk 77 00:05:35.439 --> 00:05:39.160 about you know, you need to raise your voice, but you want to 78 00:05:39.199 --> 00:05:42.560 come you don't want to come across as screaming. You want to be approachable, 79 00:05:42.600 --> 00:05:46.040 right, and just kind of a side note. I actually watch this 80 00:05:46.439 --> 00:05:49.790 a couple of weeks ago. I was just going on Youtube, and Youtube 81 00:05:49.870 --> 00:05:54.949 is such it could be assessabool, but it's such a resource if you use 82 00:05:54.990 --> 00:05:59.230 it right. And so what I was looking at is some training, some 83 00:05:59.430 --> 00:06:02.269 teaching about how how to raise your voice and such a way to be heard 84 00:06:02.269 --> 00:06:08.139 and and do it without screaming and do it with an inviting tone. So 85 00:06:08.259 --> 00:06:11.939 there's actually some some coaching and stuff on there. Oh, I need that. 86 00:06:12.220 --> 00:06:14.860 Yes, I lose my voice a lot. Yeah, well, yeah, 87 00:06:15.019 --> 00:06:16.500 a lot of it. And this is not what this episode's about. 88 00:06:16.540 --> 00:06:19.089 We're going to talk about some of the statements that you can use. Yeah, 89 00:06:19.170 --> 00:06:23.490 but I think this is helpful. Is talking about speaking from your diet 90 00:06:23.569 --> 00:06:30.810 friend right. And actually I learned, I actually do that naturally, kind 91 00:06:30.850 --> 00:06:33.759 of naturally in my early walk with the Lord, even up until now. 92 00:06:33.800 --> 00:06:38.720 I probably a year after I got saved, I was involved in doing some 93 00:06:38.839 --> 00:06:41.800 street preaching and stuff like that. So you kind of learned to raise your 94 00:06:41.839 --> 00:06:46.000 voice and that scenario to be heard. You want to broadcast your voice and 95 00:06:46.269 --> 00:06:48.790 you know, you have to ask yourself. I'm church history guy. I 96 00:06:48.870 --> 00:06:54.149 like Reading Church history and I read about men like John Wesley, for example, 97 00:06:54.910 --> 00:06:59.269 who, in the days of not having amplified sound, was able to 98 00:06:59.310 --> 00:07:03.620 speak to like ten to Twentyzero people for hours, for hours. Yeah, 99 00:07:03.860 --> 00:07:08.500 so he had to have some I mean he had certainly the Holy Spirit was 100 00:07:08.579 --> 00:07:13.819 using him, but just naturally speaking, he had to have some method in 101 00:07:13.980 --> 00:07:16.850 which he projected his voice. Yeah, it's a matter of fact. Many 102 00:07:16.970 --> 00:07:19.449 guys don't know this. Many of you folks that are listening don't know this. 103 00:07:19.569 --> 00:07:25.209 Some of you might, but Benjamin Franklin and George Whitfield, George, 104 00:07:25.529 --> 00:07:31.480 George Whitfield was a preacher at the time of John Wesley and Benjamin Franklin and 105 00:07:31.560 --> 00:07:35.160 George Whitfield were actually friends. Benjamin Franklin was not a believer, he was 106 00:07:35.199 --> 00:07:39.399 like a Deist, but he was friends with George Whitfield and he went at 107 00:07:39.439 --> 00:07:42.759 one point and use some because he's the scientific guys. He used some of 108 00:07:42.800 --> 00:07:46.629 his measuring devices and tried to measure how far away George Whitfield's voice could be 109 00:07:46.709 --> 00:07:50.029 heard, and it was like a mile away or something. I don't I 110 00:07:50.069 --> 00:07:56.389 guess Google that, Donish Shane. Yeah, so your voice can be raised 111 00:07:56.470 --> 00:08:01.899 in such a way to be heard without you screaming without you losing your voice. 112 00:08:01.660 --> 00:08:05.819 And of course there's other things you could use. Some cities you're able 113 00:08:05.860 --> 00:08:09.180 to use amplified sound. We are able to use it here in Charlotte. 114 00:08:09.579 --> 00:08:11.620 Some cities they don't care if you use amplified sound. Some cities, if 115 00:08:11.660 --> 00:08:16.129 you use amplified sound, you're going to get a citation. So you've figured 116 00:08:16.170 --> 00:08:18.930 that out. I can't tell you guys who are listening, all the information 117 00:08:20.129 --> 00:08:24.009 on that, but we can give you some helpful phrases to call out and 118 00:08:24.569 --> 00:08:28.680 what, however, you do that, and so we're going to jump into 119 00:08:28.680 --> 00:08:33.279 that and we're breaking this down and really are three talking points. Hopefully you 120 00:08:33.320 --> 00:08:35.080 guys know what our three talking points are. That when we train people, 121 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:39.840 here's the three kind of headings that we use of things that we're going to 122 00:08:39.879 --> 00:08:45.389 say under those those those headings. The first is what does God say? 123 00:08:46.029 --> 00:08:48.830 And so we want to of we want God, because he's already in the 124 00:08:48.909 --> 00:08:52.909 equation, to be on the forefront of what we're saying, and so we're 125 00:08:52.950 --> 00:08:56.220 going to give you some examples of that. So, what does God say? 126 00:08:56.179 --> 00:09:00.259 The humanity of the baby? That's our second talking point. And then 127 00:09:00.259 --> 00:09:03.899 the third is the resources that are available and under those headings we're kind of 128 00:09:05.019 --> 00:09:07.940 going to kind of look at some phrases. And what we did is we 129 00:09:07.139 --> 00:09:11.490 pulled our local sidewalk counselors. I don't know nationally to that we do it 130 00:09:11.529 --> 00:09:15.570 nationally? No, it was just local. Okay. So we pulled our 131 00:09:15.649 --> 00:09:20.169 local sidewalk counselors and just ask them, what are some of your favorite phrases 132 00:09:20.250 --> 00:09:22.610 to say? What are some of the most effective phrases to say? And 133 00:09:22.850 --> 00:09:26.799 also will say this to Vicky, has a list of a hundred and fifty 134 00:09:26.919 --> 00:09:31.960 or so moms that have chosen life over the years and she shoots out of 135 00:09:31.039 --> 00:09:35.559 text or an email to them every once in a while and asks, what 136 00:09:35.679 --> 00:09:39.830 are some of the things that you heard that helped you to choose life? 137 00:09:39.909 --> 00:09:43.269 And so we base some of what we say on that as well. But 138 00:09:43.629 --> 00:09:48.429 under these headings what God says, humanity to the baby and the resources that 139 00:09:48.429 --> 00:09:52.669 are available, available, or kind of looking at maybe two sides of the 140 00:09:52.710 --> 00:09:58.220 same coin. Right, we're looking at phrases that are empowering and phrases that 141 00:09:58.379 --> 00:10:03.059 are convicting or that are a warning phrase. Yeah, and I don't know 142 00:10:03.059 --> 00:10:07.370 that we're going to talk too much about when you would say these, because 143 00:10:07.409 --> 00:10:09.649 you would say those at different times. That contecting phrases probably not what I 144 00:10:09.690 --> 00:10:13.570 would start off with. Yeah, in general, because in general that's to 145 00:10:13.610 --> 00:10:18.049 make them not want to talk much more with us, right until they trust 146 00:10:18.090 --> 00:10:20.049 you a little bit. So usually I will start with what I believe her 147 00:10:20.129 --> 00:10:24.759 more empowering and oftentimes when I call out, I'll try and get all three 148 00:10:24.919 --> 00:10:31.240 of those major talking points in one fifteen second plea. Yeah. And that's 149 00:10:31.399 --> 00:10:35.909 not what this is, right. This is really just separating out the portions 150 00:10:35.950 --> 00:10:41.950 of a phrase yeah, that people really like, that they've either set themselves 151 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:45.950 or that other people say. Yeah, yeah, and you got to be 152 00:10:46.029 --> 00:10:50.659 thinking in terms again, of we've talked about often, of a young woman 153 00:10:50.899 --> 00:10:56.460 going into an abortion center who's scared, who's under a spirit of fear, 154 00:10:56.899 --> 00:11:01.299 under pressure from other people. There's a lot of confusion, there's a lot 155 00:11:01.340 --> 00:11:05.730 of stuff going on and you don't want to come out of the gate with 156 00:11:07.330 --> 00:11:11.889 the convicting you know God, God sees what you're doing and you better turn 157 00:11:11.929 --> 00:11:16.169 away from this. And so well, I say, typically you don't want 158 00:11:16.169 --> 00:11:20.759 to do that. But I will say also what we always encourage you guys 159 00:11:20.799 --> 00:11:24.519 with. You need to be led by the Holy Spirit. That's key. 160 00:11:24.559 --> 00:11:30.279 Yeah, because the Holy Spirit knows in the moment what that woman needs to 161 00:11:30.360 --> 00:11:33.990 hear. And there could be sometimes, and to me I think they should 162 00:11:33.990 --> 00:11:39.149 be few and far between personally, because I've been out there and I'll walk 163 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:43.509 with God and I know how the Holy Spirit deals and I've seen what the 164 00:11:43.549 --> 00:11:46.350 Holy Spirit does and how he deals with these women and how he speaks through 165 00:11:46.389 --> 00:11:52.220 his people. Most of the time, the the first phrases that are going 166 00:11:52.259 --> 00:11:56.019 to come out of my mouth and most people's mouths, and I think rightly 167 00:11:56.100 --> 00:12:00.860 so, are empowering phrases. Right. Yeah, but there are times again, 168 00:12:01.139 --> 00:12:03.929 we're phrases need to come out. There are little more convicting and that's 169 00:12:03.929 --> 00:12:07.529 the initial thing. Now a lot of times, the way I kind of 170 00:12:07.570 --> 00:12:11.129 see things and the way, you know, just trying to be led by 171 00:12:11.169 --> 00:12:15.490 the Holy Spirit, the flow of things go is typically we'll see a mom 172 00:12:16.000 --> 00:12:18.440 first time she's there, she's from her car to the door. That's when 173 00:12:18.480 --> 00:12:22.919 I'm calling out some of the some of the things that are more empowering. 174 00:12:22.000 --> 00:12:24.879 You can do this, mommy, your baby, is presidation. Yeah, 175 00:12:24.960 --> 00:12:28.879 painting a positive vision that you don't need to go in there. We can 176 00:12:28.960 --> 00:12:31.950 help you that sort of thing. Right. But if I've seen her go 177 00:12:31.149 --> 00:12:35.710 in and out like three or four times, then I might get into a 178 00:12:35.789 --> 00:12:41.149 little more of the convicting, like God sees what you're doing and he's not 179 00:12:41.269 --> 00:12:45.740 pleased. I might see something like that. Right. But again, you 180 00:12:45.820 --> 00:12:48.700 guys have to walk with the Lord. If your heart is tender before God. 181 00:12:50.340 --> 00:12:52.220 We talked about it before a couple of I don't know, a couple 182 00:12:52.259 --> 00:12:56.419 weeks ago, I think, we talked about how we're walking with God and 183 00:12:56.500 --> 00:12:58.370 there's a tenderness in our heart and humility in our heart, that's going to 184 00:12:58.450 --> 00:13:03.129 come out of our mouths. Right. And if there's just this jadedness and 185 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:07.730 disillusionment with the world in your heart and you're not walking with God, God 186 00:13:07.850 --> 00:13:09.730 not walking close to the Lord, that's going to come out of your mouth 187 00:13:11.009 --> 00:13:13.919 anger, bitterness and all that stuff. We want to just we want to 188 00:13:13.960 --> 00:13:18.320 be walking with Jesus and speaking out of a humbleness and a surrender to Jesus 189 00:13:18.600 --> 00:13:24.080 and a love for him and for those moms and those babies, for and 190 00:13:24.200 --> 00:13:26.429 and that'll be communicated. Yeah, so should we happen to them? I 191 00:13:26.590 --> 00:13:31.029 think we should. Okay, so the first is probably well, without a 192 00:13:31.110 --> 00:13:33.549 doubt, the most important in my mind, is what is God? Say. 193 00:13:33.710 --> 00:13:39.190 Yeah, that's the first category. And and so one of the first 194 00:13:39.309 --> 00:13:43.539 things that I say, and I know I've heard probably the most, this 195 00:13:43.820 --> 00:13:48.379 phrase your baby is alive and made in the image of God. Yeah, 196 00:13:48.820 --> 00:13:52.100 and I love that for so many reasons. For one thing, you're countering 197 00:13:52.299 --> 00:13:54.659 the lie that it's a Blob of cells when you're saying he's alive made in 198 00:13:54.730 --> 00:13:58.409 the image of God. Is the crux of the worth of that child. 199 00:13:58.690 --> 00:14:03.129 Yeah, and just right away, just get at it. It is God 200 00:14:03.289 --> 00:14:07.210 who made that baby and the reason for that baby's value is that baby is 201 00:14:07.289 --> 00:14:11.320 made in God's image. So, so much is conveyed in that single sentence. 202 00:14:11.399 --> 00:14:16.600 Yeah, and it's such an, in my opinion, encouragement. And 203 00:14:16.679 --> 00:14:22.080 then some people tag on some of the our councilors said, and so are 204 00:14:22.159 --> 00:14:26.789 you. Yeah, so that they're again empowering both the woman to look at 205 00:14:26.830 --> 00:14:30.710 herself in a positive light. What does that mean to be made in the 206 00:14:30.789 --> 00:14:33.669 image of God and to look at the baby? Yeah, in that light. 207 00:14:33.750 --> 00:14:39.500 Yeah, I will say that we need to steer away from like complex 208 00:14:39.740 --> 00:14:46.460 theological statements, you know, things that would get more into like trying to 209 00:14:46.539 --> 00:14:48.139 break down. If you're going to use this, your baby is alive and 210 00:14:48.220 --> 00:14:52.379 maybe the image of God. I think that's powerful, right, but trying 211 00:14:52.379 --> 00:14:54.210 to break down and being made in the image of God actually meet, you 212 00:14:54.289 --> 00:14:58.649 know, try to break that seconds anyway. So, so again, you've 213 00:14:58.649 --> 00:15:03.250 got to think in the mindset of a young woman who's scared, who's alone, 214 00:15:03.929 --> 00:15:07.720 stuff going on in her life. Simple, straight to the point statements 215 00:15:07.759 --> 00:15:13.039 and let God help her process that. Right. Really, the main point 216 00:15:13.080 --> 00:15:16.679 with this is you're bringing God to the forefront of her mind and quite possibly 217 00:15:16.679 --> 00:15:20.000 he's already there. She's already prayed, she's already thought about this, she's 218 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:24.149 already struggling with it between her and God, and he's already convicting her. 219 00:15:24.149 --> 00:15:28.350 He's already doing his work by his Holy Spirit. You're just reiterating with what 220 00:15:28.509 --> 00:15:33.389 God's already doing. Yeah, this phrase too, I think is important and 221 00:15:33.590 --> 00:15:37.179 powerful because it kind of handles too of the talking points. Right, what 222 00:15:37.379 --> 00:15:41.059 God says, yeah, that baby's made in his image and the humanity of 223 00:15:41.100 --> 00:15:45.340 the baby. It's a baby, it's alive. That child, he or 224 00:15:45.419 --> 00:15:48.259 she, I won't normally say it, I will say he or she is 225 00:15:48.379 --> 00:15:52.330 alive and made in the image of God. Now I'll will tag onto that 226 00:15:52.409 --> 00:15:54.889 statement personally. I will say, mom and your baby's alive and made in 227 00:15:54.929 --> 00:15:58.889 the image of God, precious in the sight of the Lord, just like 228 00:15:58.049 --> 00:16:00.970 you are. I do tag that, just like you are, because I 229 00:16:02.090 --> 00:16:04.679 want her to see that our concern out there on the sidewalk is not just 230 00:16:04.759 --> 00:16:10.279 for her baby. This whole more pro birth garbage, like we don't care 231 00:16:10.320 --> 00:16:12.000 about the mom, we just care about the baby. Isn't just a lie. 232 00:16:12.639 --> 00:16:18.029 We care about that mom and she's made in God's image. God sees 233 00:16:18.110 --> 00:16:22.149 the struggle. That's one of the things I'll call out. kind of maybe 234 00:16:22.190 --> 00:16:25.710 adding a little more to this than I should, but one of the things 235 00:16:25.750 --> 00:16:30.350 I'll call out is that God cares about you and he cares about your baby. 236 00:16:30.789 --> 00:16:34.139 God sees your struggle and he sees the struggle your baby is in right 237 00:16:34.179 --> 00:16:37.580 now, and that is a life and death struggle for your baby. Yes, 238 00:16:37.700 --> 00:16:41.740 I'll say that. That's that's something along the lines of kind of bringing 239 00:16:41.779 --> 00:16:47.289 God again into the equation. Right right. Something I I do want to 240 00:16:47.370 --> 00:16:52.649 point out is sometimes the women will respond and if they do it it's usually 241 00:16:52.769 --> 00:16:59.009 best to in some way piggyback off of that response, right, and so 242 00:16:59.169 --> 00:17:03.639 that that might guide you into what the next thing is. But because sometimes 243 00:17:03.679 --> 00:17:07.720 when I hear that is yes, I know God loves me. Yeah, 244 00:17:07.720 --> 00:17:12.720 and God understands, or God, God. Basically it's okay with God because 245 00:17:12.720 --> 00:17:18.869 he loves me. And and then I would probably say something along the lines 246 00:17:18.910 --> 00:17:21.630 of good, you are right, God does love you, but he also 247 00:17:21.710 --> 00:17:25.029 loves that baby and he is a loving God, but he's a god of 248 00:17:25.109 --> 00:17:27.150 justice. Yeah, and it's not just for an innocent baby to die. 249 00:17:27.470 --> 00:17:30.660 Yeah, and that situation, I know exactly what you're talking about. Your 250 00:17:30.700 --> 00:17:36.859 baby is precious in the side of God and made in his image, loved 251 00:17:37.259 --> 00:17:38.900 by him just like you are. Yeah, I know God loves me, 252 00:17:40.059 --> 00:17:42.579 and my response will be what doesn't he also love that baby you're about to 253 00:17:42.619 --> 00:17:45.170 kill? Yeah, yeah, so I want to provoke thought. I want 254 00:17:45.170 --> 00:17:48.529 to turn the question back on them, right. And so, yeah, 255 00:17:48.809 --> 00:17:53.049 don't be surprised if you hear them go back at you something to try to 256 00:17:53.170 --> 00:18:00.319 defend themselves or make themselves feel better or or something along those lines. You're 257 00:18:00.359 --> 00:18:03.559 not always going to have just the right answer. Like me, sometimes, 258 00:18:04.119 --> 00:18:07.240 fifteen minutes later, I'm like, Oh, I should have said this. 259 00:18:07.400 --> 00:18:10.680 All right, so I'll follow it away for the future that if someone says 260 00:18:10.680 --> 00:18:14.549 that, I'll respond with is sometimes you'll hear, and I know you've heard 261 00:18:14.549 --> 00:18:15.309 this a lot. I have. If you're out there, you're going to 262 00:18:15.390 --> 00:18:18.829 hear, are you going to adopt my baby? Are you going to take 263 00:18:18.869 --> 00:18:22.670 care of my baby? And my response with that, and of course you 264 00:18:22.789 --> 00:18:25.710 have to make sure you're in a position to do this, but as yes, 265 00:18:25.950 --> 00:18:27.940 I would love to take care of your child. Yeah, or yes, 266 00:18:29.099 --> 00:18:32.339 we have families that will adopt your baby right now, right, and 267 00:18:32.460 --> 00:18:36.980 it kind of does shut them up, but the reality is it's not about 268 00:18:37.059 --> 00:18:38.859 that. For them, it's really a fig leaf to try to cover up 269 00:18:38.859 --> 00:18:42.210 the conviction that they feel. Yeah, one thing I would not do in 270 00:18:42.410 --> 00:18:48.250 response to them is get defensive and start trying to justify yourself. Yeah, 271 00:18:48.369 --> 00:18:51.529 exactly, because, again, every word is precious. You know, those 272 00:18:51.569 --> 00:18:53.650 ten or fifteen seconds. Weigh them carefully. Everything you say. You have 273 00:18:55.009 --> 00:18:59.839 very limited. Yeahme, you do not have to justify yourself right being out 274 00:18:59.839 --> 00:19:03.359 there on the sidewalk. You do not have to convince anyone that what you're 275 00:19:03.359 --> 00:19:07.279 doing is the right thing, because, after all, you're called by God. 276 00:19:07.519 --> 00:19:10.549 Yeah, and you've got a mandate open your mouth for the speechless. 277 00:19:10.589 --> 00:19:12.190 Right, you've got that from the Lord, so you don't have to justify 278 00:19:12.309 --> 00:19:15.829 yourself. I agree totally with that. Don't get into a back and forth 279 00:19:15.869 --> 00:19:19.750 with them. We're talking really again about calling out these kind of online statement. 280 00:19:19.829 --> 00:19:25.380 So another statement as it pertains to what God says, and I think 281 00:19:25.539 --> 00:19:30.579 this is really powerful and I have seen MOMS choose life this that said specifically, 282 00:19:30.619 --> 00:19:33.220 they chose life because they heard something similar to this. Your child is 283 00:19:33.299 --> 00:19:41.450 a gift from God. I think it's helpful to use the word your child. 284 00:19:41.930 --> 00:19:44.730 Yes, right away, baby, but man, more child. Yeah, 285 00:19:44.930 --> 00:19:47.849 yeah, so it talks to the humanity the baby and then, of 286 00:19:47.930 --> 00:19:49.130 course, the Word Gift, that your child is a gift from God, 287 00:19:49.170 --> 00:19:53.119 because what their feeling is that this child is just a burden, a punishment, 288 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:56.839 a punishment. And really what you're doing is you're bringing the truth. 289 00:19:56.880 --> 00:20:00.519 Yeah, right, because the Bible tells us very clearly. Right. So 290 00:20:00.519 --> 00:20:03.359 some one hundred and twenty seven children are a blessing, a gift or, 291 00:20:03.839 --> 00:20:07.789 some version say, a heritage from the Lord. So it's almost like children 292 00:20:07.829 --> 00:20:14.230 are better than real estate, right, that's what a heritage is, talking 293 00:20:14.269 --> 00:20:18.109 about something you hand down, something that's like been given to you as an 294 00:20:18.190 --> 00:20:22.380 inheritance. This child is an inheritance, a gift from God, and that's 295 00:20:22.380 --> 00:20:26.180 how I would say it. Your baby is a gift from God. And 296 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:30.700 then think one of our counselors are the ones who you kind of copied this 297 00:20:30.819 --> 00:20:33.539 from. This is a statement they get, they commonly used and they tag 298 00:20:33.619 --> 00:20:37.690 on the end of that just especially for you. This child is a gift. 299 00:20:37.890 --> 00:20:41.569 Your baby is a gift from God, especially for you. I think 300 00:20:41.609 --> 00:20:45.609 that is good. Yeah, yeah, it's just God niqueness of of that 301 00:20:45.890 --> 00:20:49.519 person as the mother. I will say a similar thing. God chose you 302 00:20:51.480 --> 00:20:53.880 to have this baby. He didn't have to give this baby the spark of 303 00:20:55.079 --> 00:20:59.359 life, but he did, and that baby he knows what he's doing, 304 00:20:59.480 --> 00:21:03.200 he doesn't make mistakes and that baby is especially for you, I think. 305 00:21:03.240 --> 00:21:06.109 Yeah, I like that statement a lot. I think that's a good one. 306 00:21:06.190 --> 00:21:08.390 Yeah. So moving along to another one that kind of stands out to 307 00:21:08.509 --> 00:21:12.549 me, and this is more along the lines again in the empowering and then 308 00:21:12.589 --> 00:21:18.019 we'll kind of get into some of the convicting ones here. But God sees 309 00:21:18.059 --> 00:21:22.339 you, Mama and cares about you and your baby. Yeah, that actually 310 00:21:22.339 --> 00:21:26.619 can be convicting, right. God sees you. Yeah, I have the 311 00:21:26.660 --> 00:21:29.299 Lord is in every place. The Bible says God sees what you're doing and 312 00:21:29.980 --> 00:21:32.500 he cares about you. Yeah, and your baby. So I think that 313 00:21:32.579 --> 00:21:34.650 can move into the realm of conviction. Obviously all of this is supposed to 314 00:21:34.690 --> 00:21:40.369 be convicting and convincing, right, but moving into some that are a little 315 00:21:40.410 --> 00:21:45.210 more like hard hitting. Yeah, and I think appropriate. We talked earlier 316 00:21:45.289 --> 00:21:48.400 about when they can be appropriate. I don't think out of the gate that 317 00:21:48.480 --> 00:21:52.400 you would say God hates the hands that shed innocent blood. That's that's just 318 00:21:52.559 --> 00:21:56.200 a direct quote from the Bible. It's straight from the hands that shut in 319 00:21:56.319 --> 00:21:59.799 as him blood. And so yeah, I if you start with that you 320 00:22:00.000 --> 00:22:03.789 are likely not going to get a good response. So that would never be 321 00:22:03.950 --> 00:22:07.589 my opening. Right. And but it is biblical. Yeah, it is 322 00:22:07.630 --> 00:22:11.869 a biblical concept. Yeah, you can get theologically into you know, does 323 00:22:11.950 --> 00:22:17.859 God hate people? Or I can break that down for you the Bible's it's 324 00:22:17.900 --> 00:22:22.220 what it says, right. It's more than talking about their physical hands. 325 00:22:22.220 --> 00:22:26.180 It's talking about their actions, but it is talking about God's view of people. 326 00:22:26.259 --> 00:22:27.819 That rebel against him and are willing to shit in this a blood. 327 00:22:27.859 --> 00:22:33.250 Yeah, but I think it's a gentler way of saying it in a way, 328 00:22:33.569 --> 00:22:37.970 because for me, when I hear that, I do think of the 329 00:22:37.250 --> 00:22:41.690 hand. Yeah, the part of you that is taking this action that God 330 00:22:41.769 --> 00:22:47.960 hates. He hates that. That's what you're using your hands to do. 331 00:22:48.440 --> 00:22:52.799 Yeah, you could be using those hands instead to create a Libaby, and 332 00:22:52.839 --> 00:22:55.839 I just thought of a new phrase that I I'm going to start saying. 333 00:22:55.880 --> 00:23:00.029 That's a good one. God hates the hands that shed innocent blood, but 334 00:23:00.190 --> 00:23:03.710 he gave you those hands to creedle and hold your precious child one day. 335 00:23:03.710 --> 00:23:07.910 Yeah, so that you're contrasting what what those hands are going to do, 336 00:23:07.269 --> 00:23:11.670 that there is a choice. Yeah, yeah, that's good. Yeah. 337 00:23:11.869 --> 00:23:17.059 So one really empowering statement that I use often, and I use this especially 338 00:23:17.140 --> 00:23:18.579 with the men, because I'm a man speaking to other men, but I'll 339 00:23:18.579 --> 00:23:23.660 use it with the women as well, is to encourage them that they can 340 00:23:23.700 --> 00:23:27.569 be a good mother, because many of them have been lied to. You 341 00:23:27.690 --> 00:23:34.089 can't be a mom because you're so young or because you're of this demographic or 342 00:23:34.609 --> 00:23:38.609 single, single, yeah, college, whatever, you can't be a mom. 343 00:23:38.809 --> 00:23:42.960 You can't, you can't. That's what the world says, but I 344 00:23:44.079 --> 00:23:47.559 believe God says something different. So I want to contrast the lies that they 345 00:23:47.599 --> 00:23:51.359 were there believing with the truth. Yeah, and the truth that I'll share 346 00:23:51.400 --> 00:23:55.319 often times is that you're already a mother. So I want to plug that, 347 00:23:55.480 --> 00:23:57.190 like you're already a mother. So that speaks to the humanity of the 348 00:23:57.230 --> 00:24:02.029 baby. But then it then I go on to say you're already a mother 349 00:24:02.390 --> 00:24:06.430 and God can help you to be a good mother, and that's really empowering 350 00:24:06.549 --> 00:24:10.420 to me. You can be a good mother for that baby. Yeah, 351 00:24:10.460 --> 00:24:12.220 I'll say it to the men. You're already a dad. If you got 352 00:24:12.259 --> 00:24:15.740 her pregnant, you're already a father. God can help you to be a 353 00:24:15.940 --> 00:24:21.099 good father. Young Man, you can be a good dad to that baby. 354 00:24:21.460 --> 00:24:25.450 Yeah, starts with you getting her out of there. That's something similar 355 00:24:25.490 --> 00:24:26.849 to what I'll say. Yeah, and I love that phrase, and what 356 00:24:27.130 --> 00:24:30.650 I often will tag on is you can be the mother or the father that 357 00:24:30.849 --> 00:24:36.450 God designed you to be. To again remind them God designed you for a 358 00:24:36.650 --> 00:24:40.279 good purpose. Yeah, it's not this, it's not going in and killing 359 00:24:40.359 --> 00:24:42.920 your baby, but you can be who God designed you to be. To 360 00:24:42.960 --> 00:24:48.480 remind them. Yeah, they don't have to make the choice. Rebelled against 361 00:24:48.519 --> 00:24:52.910 him. So moving on to kind of that second category glory. So the 362 00:24:52.990 --> 00:24:56.549 first one is what God says. We touched on some of those good phrases. 363 00:24:56.589 --> 00:25:00.430 There's there's so many more. Go on that in that blog post on 364 00:25:00.509 --> 00:25:03.950 sidewalks for life and download that PDF. There's a lot of good, kind 365 00:25:03.950 --> 00:25:07.500 of oneliner statements there. Yeah, but moving into the humanity of the baby, 366 00:25:07.500 --> 00:25:10.980 because that's our second talking point, right. There's a few here that 367 00:25:11.019 --> 00:25:14.660 I think you're really good and again kind of make you these your own as 368 00:25:14.740 --> 00:25:18.900 you're calling out guys something similar to this. These are just some suggestions. 369 00:25:18.700 --> 00:25:21.809 The first one we have here on the list of that we're looking at, 370 00:25:21.849 --> 00:25:25.890 yeah, is your baby is alive. Your baby's heart is already beating. 371 00:25:25.970 --> 00:25:30.490 Right, that's powerful. Yeah, humanity the baby. Now, a heartbeat 372 00:25:30.690 --> 00:25:34.490 does not make a human being a human being, right. We acknowledge that, 373 00:25:36.559 --> 00:25:41.720 and I would say I'll I'll often am kind of careful with this because 374 00:25:42.160 --> 00:25:45.960 you know, the heartbeat starts very early, so we can be pretty confident 375 00:25:45.000 --> 00:25:48.359 that baby's heart is already beating. But I will say something and kind of 376 00:25:48.799 --> 00:25:53.109 you know, tweak it a bit and say your baby's at seventeen to twenty, 377 00:25:53.150 --> 00:25:56.230 one days after conception, your baby's heart began to beat. Yeah, 378 00:25:56.470 --> 00:26:00.150 if you're five weeks, your baby's heart is already beating. Your six weeks, 379 00:26:00.190 --> 00:26:03.460 your baby's heart is already beating. So you know, just to be 380 00:26:03.619 --> 00:26:07.859 careful. We talked about in the last podcast. May Our words and a 381 00:26:07.900 --> 00:26:11.180 couple of podcasts ago, by our words be completely true. We want to 382 00:26:11.220 --> 00:26:15.539 embellish upon the truth. We don't want to add to what's already true. 383 00:26:15.980 --> 00:26:18.049 But yeah, I mean if a woman's at an abortion center, her baby's 384 00:26:18.089 --> 00:26:22.089 heart is already be eatings. You can confidently say that. Yeah, yes, 385 00:26:22.250 --> 00:26:26.410 of course she's there for a DEC and that's probably the the line I 386 00:26:26.609 --> 00:26:30.250 use most frequently in the first part of yeah. Almost every single time I 387 00:26:30.450 --> 00:26:33.319 call out that, that's always going to be in there. I'll off and 388 00:26:33.400 --> 00:26:37.440 add in brain waves at six weeks. Yeah, speaking to the humanity the 389 00:26:37.480 --> 00:26:41.160 baby, and both of those are important, not because there would give the 390 00:26:41.200 --> 00:26:45.160 baby worth, but because most women don't know that. They really don't know 391 00:26:45.359 --> 00:26:48.549 that. They don't know that such a tiny little person. You know, 392 00:26:48.829 --> 00:26:52.869 just you know what the size of a grain of rice already has a beating 393 00:26:52.990 --> 00:26:56.990 heart. They don't know that and that I think that's a really critical truth 394 00:26:57.349 --> 00:27:02.579 for them to be aware of. Yeah, along those same lines, your 395 00:27:02.619 --> 00:27:07.019 baby already has arms, legs, fingers and toes. Now that again, 396 00:27:07.700 --> 00:27:12.059 if we're going to be strictly true, that the baby doesn't have fingers and 397 00:27:12.180 --> 00:27:17.650 toes till around eight weeks. Yeah, some of those babies coming in, 398 00:27:18.369 --> 00:27:21.329 you know those moms are only going to be five to six weeks. Yeah, 399 00:27:21.329 --> 00:27:25.650 usually a minimum of five weeks. So I would it. I would 400 00:27:25.650 --> 00:27:29.609 usually qualify that statement. I'd be a little bit more careful and say, 401 00:27:29.809 --> 00:27:33.119 if you are as early as eight weeks along, your baby has arms, 402 00:27:33.160 --> 00:27:37.799 legs, fingers, toes. Yeah, every organ in place. Yeah, 403 00:27:37.960 --> 00:27:41.559 weeks. All those developmental milestones in that first trimester I think are very powerful 404 00:27:41.599 --> 00:27:45.349 things. Yeah, to call out. Yeah, and you digging into it. 405 00:27:45.829 --> 00:27:48.549 What I don't want is for people to be thinking like I need to 406 00:27:48.589 --> 00:27:53.430 walk on eggshells and qualify everything and what if they don't have fingers and toes, 407 00:27:55.109 --> 00:27:57.309 but me really they do. They do, even though they're not visible, 408 00:27:57.470 --> 00:28:00.859 they've got fingers and toes. They've at least got the stem cells that 409 00:28:00.900 --> 00:28:04.339 are there that are creating those fingers and toes and early along. If you 410 00:28:04.380 --> 00:28:10.220 see ultra sounds of babies in like five and six weeks, they have hands, 411 00:28:10.660 --> 00:28:12.450 they have fingers. They're kind of webbed looking, right, they're very 412 00:28:12.529 --> 00:28:15.130 early, but they've got them. So, yeah, don't get hung up 413 00:28:15.250 --> 00:28:18.650 on I want to say everything technically right all the time. We just want 414 00:28:18.650 --> 00:28:22.450 to make sure the motive of our hearts, we're not embellishing you know, 415 00:28:22.529 --> 00:28:26.490 you if she's six weeks along and you're saying, you know, your baby 416 00:28:26.049 --> 00:28:29.799 is sucking its thumb or something like that, that's just not true, right, 417 00:28:29.839 --> 00:28:32.279 because they don't have the ability to do that at that point. Yeah, 418 00:28:32.480 --> 00:28:34.319 but we do want to talk about how that baby is a human being 419 00:28:34.559 --> 00:28:38.799 and I think being intentional, whatever phrases, whatever one liners you use, 420 00:28:40.720 --> 00:28:45.549 I think it's important to be intentional about using words like baby. Of course, 421 00:28:45.829 --> 00:28:49.109 your baby, your son or daughter. I will say that all member 422 00:28:49.190 --> 00:28:52.829 of your family. I've started you seeing a lot because they don't really think 423 00:28:52.990 --> 00:28:56.380 of that baby yet it's a number of their family, but indeed it is. 424 00:28:56.420 --> 00:29:00.259 Yeah, and I think that's we don't have it on this particular list, 425 00:29:00.579 --> 00:29:03.819 but that's a phrase often use that. I think is powerful and it's 426 00:29:03.859 --> 00:29:08.619 just simply that baby is your son or your daughter. Right, that's your 427 00:29:08.740 --> 00:29:11.970 child. I will say that. Say That to the men to that's your 428 00:29:12.049 --> 00:29:15.450 baby, if you got her pregnant. Always qualify with that, if you 429 00:29:15.650 --> 00:29:18.170 got her pregnant, because we see a lot of men at the abortion center 430 00:29:18.210 --> 00:29:22.650 that are just friends or cousins or whatever and they're bringing the girl there. 431 00:29:22.650 --> 00:29:26.839 So I want to qualified if you got her pregnant. Your baby is precious 432 00:29:26.839 --> 00:29:30.119 and thought of in the side of God. Your baby is made in the 433 00:29:30.160 --> 00:29:34.119 image of God. Your baby, that's your son or daughter, and you're 434 00:29:34.200 --> 00:29:37.279 required to protect this. You know some of the phrases that I'll use. 435 00:29:37.440 --> 00:29:41.630 And if you see another child in the car, which is often, or 436 00:29:41.670 --> 00:29:45.990 another baby in the car, you can expand that to say, just like 437 00:29:47.230 --> 00:29:49.950 that beautiful little baby in your car, yeah, just as precious in the 438 00:29:49.990 --> 00:29:53.500 eyes of God. Yeah, to remind them that's another member of your family 439 00:29:53.940 --> 00:29:56.500 that you are to love in the same way that you love that child. 440 00:29:56.940 --> 00:30:00.059 Let me rabbit trail just one second because that brings something to mister. Me 441 00:30:00.220 --> 00:30:03.140 Love to rabbit. I love to rabbit trail and I want to give like 442 00:30:03.180 --> 00:30:07.450 a stern warning, like, okay, don't do this. Okay, if 443 00:30:07.009 --> 00:30:11.369 you're doing this at on the sidewalk, don't do it. Stay away from 444 00:30:11.369 --> 00:30:15.170 it. That is I hope I don't do it. I've seen people do 445 00:30:15.250 --> 00:30:18.289 it. You have not done it far as I can tell. But we 446 00:30:18.450 --> 00:30:22.000 see a lot of families come into the abortion center and often I've seen car 447 00:30:23.000 --> 00:30:26.240 car, I'm mother and father, obviously, because obviously a mother and father 448 00:30:26.319 --> 00:30:30.519 come in with three or four kids in the car with them to could kill 449 00:30:30.759 --> 00:30:33.599 one of the other babies, speaking to the kids and saying, do you 450 00:30:33.680 --> 00:30:37.910 know your Mommy's going to kill yeah, your head, brother sister. I've 451 00:30:37.990 --> 00:30:41.150 seen people do that. I'll review people for doing that. Yeah, don't 452 00:30:41.190 --> 00:30:45.269 do that. Yeah, it's creepy. Yeah, it's weird. Yeah, 453 00:30:45.430 --> 00:30:48.230 it's inappropriate. Yeah, and I don't think it honors Jesus, because you 454 00:30:48.269 --> 00:30:52.579 got to think, like what what is that ten year old child going to 455 00:30:52.660 --> 00:30:56.619 do? Yeah, and over the fact that they're mother's inside of the abortion 456 00:30:56.700 --> 00:30:59.819 center, like it's yeah, don't do that. So well, I don't 457 00:31:00.700 --> 00:31:03.460 nothing to do with this. It's a good one because you you're also the 458 00:31:03.579 --> 00:31:07.210 PSYCHEA that little child is that he loves his mommy and Daddy, and that's 459 00:31:07.210 --> 00:31:11.930 such an important relationship and the last thing we want to be doing is harming 460 00:31:11.049 --> 00:31:18.410 that relationship. Hopefully, when you're speaking to the MOMS and dad's the you're 461 00:31:18.450 --> 00:31:22.079 usually saying things that a very young child is not going to really grasp. 462 00:31:22.160 --> 00:31:23.920 Yeah, yeah, but yeah, I like really nothing you can do about 463 00:31:23.920 --> 00:31:26.279 that. I mean, if they decided to bring their whole family with them, 464 00:31:26.359 --> 00:31:30.440 like, I'm not gonna move away from saying certain things, but I'm 465 00:31:30.480 --> 00:31:33.869 just not going to direct those things to the children exactly. Don't do that, 466 00:31:33.990 --> 00:31:37.190 because that's yeah, I don't think that honors Jesus and now it's weird 467 00:31:37.230 --> 00:31:41.430 and creepy. I agree. So let's let's jump in as we kind of 468 00:31:41.430 --> 00:31:44.670 wrap this podcast up, to some of the things that we would call out. 469 00:31:44.670 --> 00:31:47.259 As it pertains. Two resources, that's our third talking point, that 470 00:31:47.299 --> 00:31:49.460 we train people to use, and reaching out of the abortion centers. So 471 00:31:49.579 --> 00:31:55.059 the resources that are available. So one of the things that one of our 472 00:31:55.099 --> 00:31:59.740 counselors wrote is we have lots of hope and help to offer you. That's 473 00:31:59.779 --> 00:32:02.730 just a nice, NEAT statement. That is true. Yeah, and and 474 00:32:05.009 --> 00:32:10.329 gives them two words. They need hope and help. Yeah, yeah, 475 00:32:10.369 --> 00:32:15.490 it's good. I think I like that it's generalized. We have lots of 476 00:32:15.569 --> 00:32:17.880 help and hope available for you. I think also, if you can be 477 00:32:19.039 --> 00:32:22.920 specific, especially when you're in a scenario in which there's a pregnancy center across 478 00:32:22.960 --> 00:32:28.279 the street or just down the road, or like we have a mobile ultrasound 479 00:32:28.319 --> 00:32:30.990 unit right there, saying hey, we have a resource available right here, 480 00:32:31.029 --> 00:32:35.589 a free ultrasound, free pregnancy test. Free is also a good word by 481 00:32:35.670 --> 00:32:38.789 it's an important word. Yeah, just up the road, five minutes away 482 00:32:38.789 --> 00:32:43.029 from here, there's a pregnancy serier that will give you a free pregnant pregnancy 483 00:32:43.029 --> 00:32:46.019 test and ultrasound. Think to some that's an important statement to have. It's 484 00:32:46.059 --> 00:32:49.859 kind of like not there, but here, sort of statement. Don't go 485 00:32:49.940 --> 00:32:52.059 in there, go here. Yeah, and so I think as far as 486 00:32:52.059 --> 00:32:55.420 resources are concerned, whatever your resources might be, calling them out, if 487 00:32:55.460 --> 00:32:59.849 you can be specific about them, I think it's good. We have doctors 488 00:32:59.890 --> 00:33:02.009 that would see you free of charge. That's a common statement that we yeah, 489 00:33:02.089 --> 00:33:05.930 that we give. Yeah, kind of a oneliner statement's true. We 490 00:33:06.009 --> 00:33:08.650 have doctors. We have Dr Matt and other doctors that have offered their services 491 00:33:08.849 --> 00:33:12.849 free of charge. I'll say that Yep, because I think that's powerful. 492 00:33:12.960 --> 00:33:16.319 Yeah, whatever you face, we have churches that are available that want to 493 00:33:16.519 --> 00:33:21.799 help you. Week we can really connect you with resources that can help no 494 00:33:21.920 --> 00:33:24.359 matter what your situation is. Yeah, and I like this one and I 495 00:33:24.440 --> 00:33:28.589 think we'll kind of bring up the ring up the rear with this statement. 496 00:33:28.589 --> 00:33:31.829 Okay, you're cool with that? And I think this is an empowering statement 497 00:33:32.509 --> 00:33:37.430 and I think it's an encouraging statement and I think it's a thought provoking statement 498 00:33:37.470 --> 00:33:42.460 that can get get a good response and it's we have help for you. 499 00:33:43.220 --> 00:33:45.420 Tell me why you're here, tell me your that's a goody. That's a 500 00:33:45.539 --> 00:33:51.299 good one, because you are saying you are important. Your perspective on of 501 00:33:51.539 --> 00:33:54.140 on, on your world is important to us and we want to hear it. 502 00:33:54.420 --> 00:33:58.809 Yeah, yeah, I really like that one. Yeah, another statement 503 00:33:58.849 --> 00:34:01.369 along those lines is just simply, would you come over here and just tell 504 00:34:01.410 --> 00:34:07.250 me your story? Yeah, and it's powerful. Now, I haven't seen 505 00:34:07.289 --> 00:34:09.199 a lot of response. I don't use that commonly to have heard that used, 506 00:34:10.599 --> 00:34:14.480 but I think God can use it to provoke thought and help these women 507 00:34:14.519 --> 00:34:16.400 to see that you care about them and potentially get them to come over and 508 00:34:16.480 --> 00:34:20.480 talk with you. Now I have used that when I see men milling around 509 00:34:20.519 --> 00:34:22.039 in the parking lot and just said hey, man, come over and just 510 00:34:22.079 --> 00:34:24.429 tell me your story. Dude, I know you're I know you don't want 511 00:34:24.429 --> 00:34:27.429 to be here, because I know for a lot of I can tell they 512 00:34:27.469 --> 00:34:29.510 don't want to be there. Yeah, just come and tell me what's going 513 00:34:29.590 --> 00:34:31.150 on, man. I'll say something like that. And so, yeah, 514 00:34:31.389 --> 00:34:36.469 hopefully these were some good empowering statements for you guys. And again, go 515 00:34:36.590 --> 00:34:42.380 to that website or website sidewalks for lifecom equipping articles and there's an article there 516 00:34:42.460 --> 00:34:45.179 where you can download a pdf of just some statements to call out. Make 517 00:34:45.219 --> 00:34:49.380 Your own PDF. I think it's good, especially if you're training other people, 518 00:34:49.860 --> 00:34:52.969 because this is a very intimidating part of this ministry. Maybe you've been 519 00:34:52.010 --> 00:34:54.969 doing this for a long time and it's no big deal to you to raise 520 00:34:54.969 --> 00:34:58.969 your voice and call out across the parking lot and you've got your own statements 521 00:34:59.010 --> 00:35:00.690 and stuff. For some people, though, it's a big deal. Yeah, 522 00:35:00.690 --> 00:35:04.690 and so if you can empower them by giving them a list, maybe 523 00:35:04.690 --> 00:35:07.440 sending this podcast. If you're training people, maybe you're not part of love 524 00:35:07.559 --> 00:35:13.719 life, feel free to use that that PDF that we gave you access to 525 00:35:14.400 --> 00:35:17.360 on a website to print it out, hand it to your people that you're 526 00:35:17.400 --> 00:35:22.469 training. Yeah, haven't listened to this podcast. And Yeah, empower people, 527 00:35:22.949 --> 00:35:28.789 and I believe God's going to use these statements in God's going to use 528 00:35:28.869 --> 00:35:31.469 you to save babies. Amen, he will. Amen. All right, 529 00:35:31.550 --> 00:35:35.780 guys. Well, we often give our email addresses, and so we're going 530 00:35:35.820 --> 00:35:37.179 to give them now.
