The abortion industry certainly knows that the words they use can have an impact on how people view their "services". As prolife ministers, we need to understand the importance of the words we use as well. Join Vicky and Daniel as they talk about "words" and how the words we use can change the way we and others view abortion.

We encourage you to do that. 9 00:00:43.850 --> 00:00:49.729 We're going to talk today about words and that words mean something and, 10 00:00:49.890 --> 00:00:53.640 of course, in particular when we're dealing with the issue of abortion, the 11 00:00:53.719 --> 00:00:57.759 language that we use, the words that we use, can have an impact, 12 00:00:57.799 --> 00:01:02.759 a good positive impact or a bad negative impact. All right, and 13 00:01:03.039 --> 00:01:07.069 we well know, if you've been in this area of ministry for any time, 14 00:01:07.909 --> 00:01:11.109 you who are listening, you well know that the quote pro choice movement 15 00:01:11.390 --> 00:01:17.109 knows this as well. Right and their language with plan parenthood and and other 16 00:01:17.269 --> 00:01:21.060 you know, the abortion industry in general. They craft language in such a 17 00:01:21.140 --> 00:01:23.540 way a right that makes it seem like abortion is just healthcare. Yeah, 18 00:01:23.579 --> 00:01:26.420 matter of fact, they say that abortion is healthcare rights, one of the 19 00:01:26.459 --> 00:01:30.340 thing reproductive health care. Yeah, so we're going to talk about that. 20 00:01:30.620 --> 00:01:34.370 We're also going to talk about how we as as ministers of the Gospel, 21 00:01:36.090 --> 00:01:41.569 but as prolife ministers as well, ministers of life, the language that we 22 00:01:41.650 --> 00:01:47.090 use and how that language can be received or even rejected by those that were 23 00:01:47.129 --> 00:01:51.239 trying to reach because of the words that we use. Right, right, 24 00:01:51.319 --> 00:01:53.719 we need to be very careful with words. While we were thinking about doing 25 00:01:53.799 --> 00:02:00.680 this podcast, in this this subject, I was in an extended text exchange 26 00:02:00.469 --> 00:02:07.069 with a mother who was on the fence between choosing life or aborting her child. 27 00:02:07.349 --> 00:02:09.629 Yeah, and I was very conscious of the words I was using. 28 00:02:10.349 --> 00:02:14.870 And after a while she kind of went silent, which is usually not a 29 00:02:14.949 --> 00:02:20.539 good sign. And then a couple of days later, I wrote to her, 30 00:02:21.939 --> 00:02:27.900 offering help again, and she responded the pregnancy is terminated. Yeah, 31 00:02:28.180 --> 00:02:31.849 and it really struck me. I wanted to write back, do you mean 32 00:02:32.129 --> 00:02:37.569 that your baby is dead, that you have killed your baby? I wouldn't 33 00:02:37.569 --> 00:02:40.930 have, and I didn't, but that is what happened. But the the 34 00:02:42.009 --> 00:02:46.280 words that she used made it seem like, you know, a job is 35 00:02:46.319 --> 00:02:51.719 terminated or or you know, the the dishes are done, the pregnancy is 36 00:02:51.719 --> 00:02:57.479 terminated. It was such a cold and sterile sort of it's the language of 37 00:02:57.560 --> 00:03:02.150 the abortion industry, is yeah, and that's intentional. The abortion industry knows 38 00:03:04.110 --> 00:03:08.349 that the more terminology and words that they would use that would humanize that baby, 39 00:03:08.669 --> 00:03:12.830 right, the less likely women are going to be to come to them 40 00:03:12.900 --> 00:03:17.419 and have abortions pay for their healthcare. Yeah, reproductive services. Yeah, 41 00:03:17.620 --> 00:03:20.979 yeah, I mean, come on, I'm going to rabbit trail on this, 42 00:03:21.340 --> 00:03:25.860 right, but reproductive health care, abortion is exactly the opposite of reproduction. 43 00:03:25.939 --> 00:03:32.849 Reproduction, the word reproduce implies that you're that something else is being created 44 00:03:32.930 --> 00:03:38.169 in the milt produced. Yes, and that's exactly the opposite that which has 45 00:03:38.169 --> 00:03:43.240 already been produced by the hand, by the hand of God. Yeah, 46 00:03:43.280 --> 00:03:47.360 and through the active intercourse, that baby is being killed. It's not reproduction, 47 00:03:47.400 --> 00:03:51.639 it's the opposite anyway. Yeah, and health. Well, health is 48 00:03:51.680 --> 00:03:57.189 usually that you're saving and enhancing someone's life, not taking life. That so 49 00:03:57.710 --> 00:04:04.229 I went through some of the words that are prominent in the abortion movement. 50 00:04:04.509 --> 00:04:10.259 So, so one of the words abortion, let's talk about that. Okay, 51 00:04:10.340 --> 00:04:15.060 portion itself, the word abortion. What's an abortion? I mean most 52 00:04:15.139 --> 00:04:19.579 people outside of who are doing abortions really it's not a word. To use 53 00:04:19.740 --> 00:04:27.970 abortion a and it it in and of itself sanitizes what is a horrific, 54 00:04:28.089 --> 00:04:34.050 violent either poisoning or dismember me dismemberment, death of an unborn child. Yeah, 55 00:04:34.490 --> 00:04:43.800 but so the word itself, abortion distances the mother and everybody from the 56 00:04:44.000 --> 00:04:48.399 truth of what is actually yeah, yeah, or even that term termination of 57 00:04:48.439 --> 00:04:51.680 a pregnancy, right. Yeah, you know, when you think about the 58 00:04:51.720 --> 00:04:55.350 word abortion, I mean if you go to its root, and of course 59 00:04:55.430 --> 00:05:00.430 the word is abort right, and it's stoppinging a process, right, process 60 00:05:00.470 --> 00:05:03.990 that's in place. It's stopping that process. Now, the process, of 61 00:05:04.110 --> 00:05:08.220 course, in this situation is pregnancy, right, and that's another word. 62 00:05:09.100 --> 00:05:14.620 People in the Abortion Industry Plan parenthood. They use the word pregnancy to apply 63 00:05:14.740 --> 00:05:16.220 to the baby. We're going to take care of your pregnancy, right, 64 00:05:16.259 --> 00:05:19.779 we're going to remove the pregnancy. Right. Well, pregnancy is not a 65 00:05:19.939 --> 00:05:24.089 thing. I actually say this this often, yes, as I'm talking to 66 00:05:24.129 --> 00:05:28.529 women at the abortion center, talking to men, and say pregnancy is not 67 00:05:28.569 --> 00:05:34.009 a thing, it's a process and abortion stops that process. Of pregnancy. 68 00:05:34.129 --> 00:05:38.399 Yeah, but you know, if you think about it, I mean thinking 69 00:05:38.439 --> 00:05:43.079 about the word abortion, they're actually two ways to abort a pregnancy. You 70 00:05:43.279 --> 00:05:47.639 can kill your child in the womb, dismemberment or a medical abortion, or 71 00:05:48.560 --> 00:05:53.629 you can deliver your baby, I mean delivery of a child. Your child 72 00:05:53.750 --> 00:05:58.230 being born terminates the pregnancy. That's right. So it's not abortion, but 73 00:05:58.350 --> 00:06:00.949 check to termination of pregnancy, is what you're saying. And one one very 74 00:06:00.990 --> 00:06:04.540 positive and one very horrific. Yeah, how about just the Word Clinic? 75 00:06:05.459 --> 00:06:11.699 Yeah, abortion clinic. So what does clinic say to us? Well, 76 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:16.420 it seems helpful. It seems like it's there to meet our needs, medical 77 00:06:16.540 --> 00:06:21.129 needs and that sort of thing. Doctors who are there to improve life. 78 00:06:21.129 --> 00:06:26.129 Yeah, well, so this is something I mentioned to you before we started 79 00:06:26.209 --> 00:06:30.370 this podcast. But yes, some of the language that we use, because 80 00:06:30.370 --> 00:06:35.000 there is a lingo, I guess, associated with with any I guess niche 81 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:39.600 or whatever. I don't know what word to use there. Yeah, and 82 00:06:39.720 --> 00:06:43.480 we have a lingo on the sidewalk and within our circles. We refer to 83 00:06:43.480 --> 00:06:46.350 the abortion clinics as abortion mills. That's an abortion meal. And why do 84 00:06:46.430 --> 00:06:50.189 we do that? It's because they produce abortions. They and they do it 85 00:06:51.149 --> 00:06:54.629 without really you know, you think of a meal, you think of they 86 00:06:54.709 --> 00:07:00.509 just produce a product without really regard to anything but just producing that product. 87 00:07:00.670 --> 00:07:04.259 And that's what abortion is, especially the one not far from here on the 88 00:07:04.339 --> 00:07:08.579 trope drive, when they're doing, we just came from there today, forty 89 00:07:08.860 --> 00:07:13.740 seven, more than probably more, probably more than forty seven one day abortions. 90 00:07:14.019 --> 00:07:16.610 Yeah, yeah, that's an abortion mill. So it's a factory. 91 00:07:16.850 --> 00:07:20.569 It's a factory of babies, that abortions, killing by children. Yeah, 92 00:07:20.610 --> 00:07:24.250 right. So we refer to it in our circles as an abortion meal. 93 00:07:24.490 --> 00:07:27.730 Yeah. Now, when I'm sharing, though, publicly on social media, 94 00:07:27.810 --> 00:07:30.600 if I go share at a church or something like that, people who aren't 95 00:07:30.720 --> 00:07:32.959 in this realm, right, that I want to bring into this realm, 96 00:07:33.040 --> 00:07:35.519 like I want them to come into this ministry. I want them to see 97 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:40.480 the validity of this ministry, in the necessity of this ministry, I don't 98 00:07:40.480 --> 00:07:44.120 use the term abortion meal, right. I actually will use the term abortion 99 00:07:44.240 --> 00:07:47.589 clinic or abortion center. Yeah, now I do try to steer clear of 100 00:07:47.629 --> 00:07:51.149 abortion clinic so much because I don't want to validate it, because it's not 101 00:07:51.269 --> 00:07:56.310 a clinic, because when you think of clinic, you think of healthcare and 102 00:07:56.709 --> 00:08:01.540 really helping people and doctors that actually do good things. Yeah, but I 103 00:08:01.180 --> 00:08:05.420 do that and I use that term and knowledge and I steer clear of abortion 104 00:08:05.579 --> 00:08:09.180 meal so that people aren't, you know, just wondering what are you even 105 00:08:09.180 --> 00:08:11.579 talking about? You know, you're speaking your lingo and they don't really understand 106 00:08:11.620 --> 00:08:15.529 what you're talking about. Yeah, right. So just to avoid all that, 107 00:08:15.610 --> 00:08:18.930 I just use abortion center, right, or abortion clinic, but I 108 00:08:20.009 --> 00:08:22.529 might talk about it being an abortion meal and then explain that. You know, 109 00:08:22.569 --> 00:08:26.129 I think it's important for us, if we're going to use terms that 110 00:08:26.279 --> 00:08:31.439 people don't normally connect with, that we take time to explain those terms, 111 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:37.159 because terms and big words sometimes can make people pause and think about that. 112 00:08:37.480 --> 00:08:41.990 Right, but I think it's up to US sometimes to explain those words. 113 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:46.669 So, for example, if I'm at the abortion meal and I'm calling out 114 00:08:46.710 --> 00:08:50.830 to a mom who obviously doesn't know the Lord, I want to share the 115 00:08:50.950 --> 00:08:52.990 Gospel, right, I want her to know the Lord, and I'm going 116 00:08:54.029 --> 00:08:56.659 to talk about repentance and I'm going to talk about sin and I will use 117 00:08:56.700 --> 00:09:01.500 the word fornication, I will talk about sex outside of marriage and I'll show 118 00:09:01.539 --> 00:09:05.179 when uses anymore. I M Biblical word and we just don't hear it much 119 00:09:05.259 --> 00:09:09.340 any it's not a popular word. Su Sure. Yeah, and I do 120 00:09:09.500 --> 00:09:13.769 that actually intense right, because I think that it it's maybe for some people 121 00:09:13.850 --> 00:09:16.769 it's a archaic word or whatever. Yeah, but I do it and then 122 00:09:16.769 --> 00:09:18.929 I explain it. So I'll say something like, you know, the Bible 123 00:09:18.970 --> 00:09:24.480 says that fornication is sin inside of God, and I'll say fornication is sex 124 00:09:24.559 --> 00:09:28.279 outside of marriage. So then I'm bringing a word into the equation to help 125 00:09:28.320 --> 00:09:31.559 them to think about it and then I'm explaining that word. Because if it's 126 00:09:31.559 --> 00:09:35.320 just say fornication is wrong, yeah, where I just say repent. So 127 00:09:35.440 --> 00:09:37.000 if I use the word repent, which we should, it's a biblical word. 128 00:09:37.080 --> 00:09:39.950 Yeah, I will say. So you need to repent. That means 129 00:09:39.990 --> 00:09:43.669 you need to turn away from your sin and turn to the Lord, right, 130 00:09:43.029 --> 00:09:46.190 right. Yeah, yeah, and I think that word has kind of 131 00:09:46.230 --> 00:09:52.220 a bit of a shock value because it's just so acceptable, yeah, today's 132 00:09:52.299 --> 00:09:56.259 society, that everybody does it. Everybody has sex outside of marriage. So, 133 00:09:56.820 --> 00:10:01.860 but if you apply a word that clearly God meant it in a negative 134 00:10:01.860 --> 00:10:05.059 way, yeah, then I think it and most people have read the Bible, 135 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:07.889 at least here in this area, and they they might look at it 136 00:10:07.929 --> 00:10:11.610 a little bit differently. Yeah, it. How about just the word pill? 137 00:10:13.129 --> 00:10:16.649 Yeah, that it's an abortion pill. So what do you think of 138 00:10:16.809 --> 00:10:20.009 when you think of pill? Yeah, you know, you think of I 139 00:10:20.169 --> 00:10:24.159 think kind of a quick fix, yeah, to your situation. You know, 140 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:26.480 you got a headache, Hey, you take a head but it's a 141 00:10:26.559 --> 00:10:31.159 life saving right, it will, it relieves undesirable symptoms and and it and 142 00:10:31.559 --> 00:10:35.070 in some cases it saves lives. We take pills, medicine, whatever they 143 00:10:35.110 --> 00:10:39.269 want to coronavirus medicine, pills, something that will, that will lend this 144 00:10:39.750 --> 00:10:45.629 this pandemic. Yeah, and course, again it speaks of healthcare and a 145 00:10:45.710 --> 00:10:48.590 helpful thing, right, most of the time. Yeah, but of course, 146 00:10:48.669 --> 00:10:52.500 in this case, right, we're not really talking about as far as 147 00:10:52.539 --> 00:10:56.379 the abortion peel is concerned, it's really not an abortion peel. It's actually 148 00:10:56.379 --> 00:11:01.340 an abortion pill regiment. Right, they give to medications. Yeah, and 149 00:11:01.379 --> 00:11:03.820 I do take time to explain that. You know, we have in our 150 00:11:03.899 --> 00:11:07.490 brochure that we hand out to people going into the abortion center the abortion pill 151 00:11:07.490 --> 00:11:11.649 procedure and describes it and how it works. Yeah, because again, it's 152 00:11:11.690 --> 00:11:13.769 not you. I'll say that on microphone. Sometimes I'll say that. You 153 00:11:13.850 --> 00:11:16.169 know, this is not just the magic peel that you take, your baby 154 00:11:16.210 --> 00:11:18.919 disappears. You going with your right, right, but it's also an act 155 00:11:18.960 --> 00:11:22.360 of violence. Yeah, and the medication that you take is going to kill 156 00:11:22.360 --> 00:11:26.840 your child and then the second medication that they give you to take it home, 157 00:11:26.000 --> 00:11:30.679 you're going to deliver your dead baby in the toilet, and pretty violently, 158 00:11:30.960 --> 00:11:33.429 with pretty violent conection. Anyone is out there listening, you've seen the 159 00:11:33.470 --> 00:11:39.990 unplanned movie and it really graphically shows is how an abortion pill procedures carried through. 160 00:11:41.269 --> 00:11:43.309 Yeah, that is the reality of it. Yeah. Yeah, so 161 00:11:43.389 --> 00:11:46.980 that word pill makes it seem like any see and it's yeah, it's no 162 00:11:48.100 --> 00:11:50.940 big deal, I'm going to take this peel. I just taking the peel 163 00:11:50.019 --> 00:11:54.379 right. Yeah, and yeah, it sanitizes it. Yeah, than exact. 164 00:11:54.419 --> 00:11:56.820 makes it seem like something it's not as bad as actually is. Yeah, 165 00:11:56.940 --> 00:12:00.779 even the word pro choice, we've talked about that. The word pro 166 00:12:01.139 --> 00:12:05.450 pro choice. It's a pro where. Really, what they're saying is is 167 00:12:05.490 --> 00:12:09.850 we see very clearly that they're not supportive of the choice for life. They 168 00:12:09.889 --> 00:12:16.919 do everything in their power to prevent the MOM's from choosing life in that at 169 00:12:16.919 --> 00:12:20.840 least in that parking lot and where we're standing on the sidewalk. So it's 170 00:12:20.919 --> 00:12:26.840 really it's a choice for the murder of an innocent unborn baby. But you 171 00:12:28.000 --> 00:12:31.669 never hear that. They don't say that. You know, one of the 172 00:12:31.750 --> 00:12:35.710 things I've said pro choice people and to, you know, the MOMS going 173 00:12:35.750 --> 00:12:39.909 into the abortion center when I think it's appropriate. Yeah, is the word 174 00:12:39.990 --> 00:12:43.070 choice. You know, you're here because you want to exercise your right of 175 00:12:43.149 --> 00:12:46.940 choice. You're right to choose. There are the word choice itself implies the 176 00:12:48.059 --> 00:12:52.740 availability of more than one option. If you only have one option, you 177 00:12:52.899 --> 00:12:58.019 don't have choice. Yeah, and in an abortion center and an abortion clinic, 178 00:12:58.259 --> 00:13:01.529 clinic, in an abortion meal. Yeah, they're not offering other options 179 00:13:01.570 --> 00:13:05.129 right. I mean they're not laying out a brochure and says, okay, 180 00:13:05.169 --> 00:13:07.409 you can choose adoption, you can choose to part your child are you can 181 00:13:07.529 --> 00:13:13.519 choose abortion. They're not doing that right. And you know you wouldn't expect 182 00:13:13.559 --> 00:13:16.480 them to write because they make money. All there. Its children at it 183 00:13:16.600 --> 00:13:22.159 that right. And so choice IMPLAUSI. Availability of more than one option. 184 00:13:22.279 --> 00:13:24.480 But we all know when people say their pro choice. We are they talking 185 00:13:24.480 --> 00:13:28.110 about? Yeah, we're talking about abortion. Their pro abortion, right, 186 00:13:28.149 --> 00:13:31.149 right. That's the reality of it. And of course they claim that we're 187 00:13:31.230 --> 00:13:35.309 just pro birth. Yeah, I mean I'm fine with that term. I'm 188 00:13:35.350 --> 00:13:37.590 pro birth. Yeah, I'm I'm glad you're born, Vicky. I'm glad 189 00:13:37.590 --> 00:13:41.539 I was born. I'm even glad there's those pro abortion people were born, 190 00:13:41.860 --> 00:13:46.019 you know, but we're pro you, pro you living beyond birth to yeah, 191 00:13:46.059 --> 00:13:48.419 I mean, that's that's all just a bunch. Yeah, yea, 192 00:13:48.019 --> 00:13:52.580 so many of the people that accompany the abortion patients. I don't actually that's 193 00:13:52.580 --> 00:13:58.649 another one. Patient. Yeah, patient. Well, they're not patients. 194 00:13:58.409 --> 00:14:03.529 Their clients may be clients that, you know, contributing to the murder of 195 00:14:03.570 --> 00:14:07.129 their own child, but they're really not. Yeah, patients. Patients are 196 00:14:07.210 --> 00:14:13.080 someone who have some sort of disease, right, that needs help clearing it 197 00:14:13.159 --> 00:14:16.600 up, and pregnancy is not a disease, it is a normal process. 198 00:14:16.639 --> 00:14:20.679 Yeah, actually had somebody on facebook. I think I might have put a 199 00:14:20.840 --> 00:14:24.039 quote out there, not a quote, but a post out there on facebook, 200 00:14:24.080 --> 00:14:26.429 on our public facebook page, share in how many abortion patients were in 201 00:14:26.509 --> 00:14:30.750 there. And you know, I use that word because people know what you're 202 00:14:30.750 --> 00:14:33.629 talking about, and they correct me said these are not patience, these are 203 00:14:33.669 --> 00:14:35.269 aboarding moms. Yeah, exactly, and I was like, you know what, 204 00:14:35.429 --> 00:14:39.299 yeah, you're right. Yeah, and so moving forward I'm kind of 205 00:14:39.340 --> 00:14:41.379 doing the best I can, because that's what these are, aboarding mom they're 206 00:14:41.460 --> 00:14:46.059 there other people that are here to kill their children. So the people that 207 00:14:46.179 --> 00:14:50.940 comment, that accompany them, are called support people, support support people, 208 00:14:50.100 --> 00:14:54.769 and in fact, I love this that you said this. I believe it 209 00:14:54.889 --> 00:14:58.730 was last week, and I just loved it and it's so perfect for what 210 00:14:58.850 --> 00:15:03.690 we're discussing now, where one of the support people said you were eloquently speaking 211 00:15:03.730 --> 00:15:07.360 to him about he needed to go in there and help this woman to make 212 00:15:07.440 --> 00:15:13.120 a godly choice and to preserve that baby and to really help that woman because 213 00:15:13.120 --> 00:15:18.960 abortion is so devastating to women as well. And the man said, look, 214 00:15:18.480 --> 00:15:26.149 I'm I'm not the father, I'm just here for moral support. Moral 215 00:15:26.470 --> 00:15:31.070 support. Think about that, and which you pointed out so wonderfully. Well, 216 00:15:31.309 --> 00:15:33.230 you know, if you're here for moral support, there has to be 217 00:15:33.389 --> 00:15:39.620 something moral they are supporting. Yeah, and the death of an innocent human 218 00:15:39.700 --> 00:15:43.580 being through brutal violment means is not moral. Yeah, and anybody immoral. 219 00:15:43.659 --> 00:15:46.740 It's very immoral. I think that's what you said to him. This isn't 220 00:15:46.940 --> 00:15:50.769 im moral. Support is is basically so. The word, though, the 221 00:15:50.850 --> 00:15:56.450 word that even these people that accompany the women trying to make them feel it's 222 00:15:56.649 --> 00:16:02.330 okay for them to be there right in whatever capacity, or support person in 223 00:16:02.490 --> 00:16:06.039 her. So you are. That's a positive or positive thing. You're holding 224 00:16:06.120 --> 00:16:08.440 them up in their time of need. But really, what they are they're 225 00:16:08.559 --> 00:16:15.399 an accessory. They're an accessory to murder and God will call them to account. 226 00:16:15.440 --> 00:16:18.590 Yeah, for their part in that. I had a mom last week 227 00:16:18.669 --> 00:16:22.950 actually, who she chose life and one of her relatives was aboarding and she 228 00:16:23.070 --> 00:16:26.950 was paying for it, right, and she knew that it was wrong and 229 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:30.429 she was there. She had chosen like purpose. She was coming to support 230 00:16:30.509 --> 00:16:34.620 the heather. Well, they they came together and and one of them stopped 231 00:16:34.820 --> 00:16:38.940 to talk to me. Okay, shows life. And while we're counseling her, 232 00:16:40.580 --> 00:16:45.500 the nurse comes to get the payment for the relative who was aboarding and 233 00:16:45.659 --> 00:16:48.210 we did our best to try and talk this mom, who chose life, 234 00:16:48.490 --> 00:16:52.250 out of being an accessory to murder, and she kept saying, I'm just 235 00:16:52.929 --> 00:16:57.610 I can't, I have to support my sister. Yeah, so that words 236 00:16:57.730 --> 00:17:02.879 support, that it's considered support, when really, what are you doing? 237 00:17:03.519 --> 00:17:07.799 You're helping someone to murder a baby. And words matter. I think a 238 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:12.400 good analogy or something that people can connect with, and I use it often 239 00:17:12.480 --> 00:17:17.869 times if I'm talking to US support person who's just there to support their friend. 240 00:17:18.069 --> 00:17:21.029 Right, I'll say something like well, if they were at the bar 241 00:17:21.470 --> 00:17:22.710 and had a little too much of drink and they got their keys in their 242 00:17:22.750 --> 00:17:26.950 hand and are walking toward the door to get in their car and drop down 243 00:17:26.950 --> 00:17:30.660 the road, would you support them? Yeah, because if you didn't do 244 00:17:30.819 --> 00:17:33.539 something to stop them, if you just ignored that, or if you hopped 245 00:17:33.579 --> 00:17:37.180 in the car with them, right, and someone got killed, you would 246 00:17:37.180 --> 00:17:41.980 be an accessory. Right, you could be tried and you could be convicted. 247 00:17:41.019 --> 00:17:45.529 Yeah, for not helping your friend do the right thing. Yeah, 248 00:17:45.529 --> 00:17:48.490 you're culpable, you know. Or you know, if your friend told you, 249 00:17:48.170 --> 00:17:51.970 Hey, I want to get rob this bank, would you ride along 250 00:17:52.009 --> 00:17:55.049 with me? Right, if you hop in the car with them, you 251 00:17:55.130 --> 00:17:57.880 might not do any of the robbing, you might be you might even be 252 00:17:57.960 --> 00:18:00.480 opposed to it, and you talking to him the whole way. Hey, 253 00:18:00.480 --> 00:18:04.559 I don't want you to rob this bank, but you're involving in that. 254 00:18:04.680 --> 00:18:08.920 You're being in that vehicle, even driving the getaway car. Its hearty agreement 255 00:18:10.000 --> 00:18:14.029 to that right. So they are an accessory to that. Now, of 256 00:18:14.150 --> 00:18:17.549 course, words do mean something and with our language and with the tone that 257 00:18:17.630 --> 00:18:19.109 we use, in the way that we speak, we're not just out there 258 00:18:19.190 --> 00:18:25.309 on the sidewalk lamb basting everyone. Right, you're all bunch of wicked accessories 259 00:18:25.349 --> 00:18:27.619 to murder. When we're given a one on one opportunity, we use those 260 00:18:27.660 --> 00:18:32.420 words and we want it the conviction, the Holy Spirit to come because ultimately, 261 00:18:32.420 --> 00:18:33.059 you mean, you can yell as loud as you want, you use 262 00:18:33.099 --> 00:18:36.980 all the words you want. Ultimately, of the Holy Spirit doesn't convict them, 263 00:18:37.019 --> 00:18:40.220 there's no change going to take place. So we're trusting in the Lord 264 00:18:40.220 --> 00:18:44.890 and we're trusting in God's timing. We're trusting in God's ability to reach their 265 00:18:44.970 --> 00:18:48.569 hearts. But we do need to be truthful with our language. We need 266 00:18:48.769 --> 00:18:52.410 do need to be calculated with the language that we use so that people don't 267 00:18:52.410 --> 00:18:56.960 let themselves because people will use language in their own minds to let themselves off 268 00:18:56.039 --> 00:18:57.839 the hook. Right, we can't do that. Yeah, and they do 269 00:18:57.880 --> 00:19:02.079 it with the word feed is for there's many, many words for baby. 270 00:19:02.200 --> 00:19:04.880 Fetus is one that's that's kind of funny in a way because feet is just 271 00:19:06.039 --> 00:19:10.869 means little one. It's Latin for little one. It's not like it's saying 272 00:19:10.950 --> 00:19:14.789 in some way fetus is not baby, right, but it makes them feel 273 00:19:14.789 --> 00:19:18.910 better because you're not saying baby. But one of my least favorite, why? 274 00:19:18.910 --> 00:19:25.140 I have two least favorite one is just station calling the baby a jest. 275 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:27.180 Station. Yeah, that to me. I don't know. That one 276 00:19:27.380 --> 00:19:32.180 bothers me a lot. And the second one that bothers me a lot that 277 00:19:32.299 --> 00:19:36.779 you hear in the abortion industry is product of conception, right, yeah, 278 00:19:36.859 --> 00:19:41.130 the product of conception. That's half a product of conception. Party for for 279 00:19:41.329 --> 00:19:47.369 the the pregnant conception shower, right, exactly, in products of conception shower. 280 00:19:47.529 --> 00:19:49.329 You know these MOMS when they find out they're pregnant, your moms who 281 00:19:49.329 --> 00:19:52.880 were excited about their babies. Right, don't put out there, Hey, 282 00:19:52.119 --> 00:19:56.680 I have a product of conception, might be a girl or boy. Right, 283 00:19:56.880 --> 00:19:57.559 what do you think? We're going to have? A yeah, GIN 284 00:19:57.640 --> 00:20:03.720 to reveal fromm probably from station. Product of conceptive, the word I hate. 285 00:20:03.960 --> 00:20:07.269 Yeah, Watch, I mentioned earlier, is pregnancy, your pregnancy. 286 00:20:07.309 --> 00:20:08.789 We're going to take care, we're going to remove your pregnancy. No, 287 00:20:10.029 --> 00:20:12.549 you're not. That's it's not a pregnancy, it's a baby. In any 288 00:20:12.589 --> 00:20:18.470 other scenario, yeah, I've said this to a boarding mother's in any other 289 00:20:18.549 --> 00:20:21.740 scenario, if you were excited about this baby, you wouldn't refer to it 290 00:20:21.779 --> 00:20:25.019 as a pregnancy. Doesn't matter how early you are, you would say I'm 291 00:20:25.220 --> 00:20:27.539 having a baby. You know, you recommend that. The moment that you 292 00:20:27.619 --> 00:20:30.259 find out it's a baby. It's not like, well, this, this 293 00:20:30.420 --> 00:20:34.339 is just its ego to or blasticider, you just don't say that that was 294 00:20:34.380 --> 00:20:41.089 say it. It's unless you're trying to avoid certain realities, you're going to 295 00:20:41.170 --> 00:20:44.329 recognize it's a baby when you see those two lines on that pregnancy test. 296 00:20:44.410 --> 00:20:47.609 You didn't think, Oh, I'm carrying a pregnancy, I have just station 297 00:20:48.329 --> 00:20:52.640 you know, I've got a projecty of conception or a fetus, so have 298 00:20:52.880 --> 00:20:56.039 a baby. I'm a mother exactly. And that kind of brings us. 299 00:20:56.359 --> 00:21:02.160 Brings me to this other thault and the words that we use when we're addressing 300 00:21:02.200 --> 00:21:04.869 the women going into the abortion center. We do say, young lady, 301 00:21:04.869 --> 00:21:07.750 please come over and talked with us. We call me a young lady. 302 00:21:07.829 --> 00:21:12.069 were, of course, kind and gentle in our tone, but we call 303 00:21:12.150 --> 00:21:15.829 a mom's also. Yeah, we say my mom, go in there and 304 00:21:15.910 --> 00:21:18.380 take the life of your baby, because that's the reality, right. Are 305 00:21:18.500 --> 00:21:22.220 Mother's yeah, exactly, and it's not like we're trying to just reduce them 306 00:21:22.299 --> 00:21:26.059 to mother's which is something I've heard people say. It is that we are 307 00:21:26.180 --> 00:21:32.970 pointing out. This is there, there as a mother about to slaughter their 308 00:21:33.009 --> 00:21:38.170 child, and the reminder you are a mother. That alone can sometimes have 309 00:21:38.849 --> 00:21:44.130 value and power. Yeah, you're a mother. Yeah, because the truth 310 00:21:44.210 --> 00:21:48.079 is that she is a mother at the moment of conception. Yeah, yeah, 311 00:21:48.079 --> 00:21:52.119 you know, a mother is a female, yeah, who has offspring. 312 00:21:52.279 --> 00:21:56.960 Yeah, right. Yeah, she has in her womb offspring, she 313 00:21:57.119 --> 00:22:00.200 has a child, yeah, her baby, her son or daughter, and 314 00:22:00.279 --> 00:22:04.910 that baby has gender. It's either a he or she rather than an it. 315 00:22:06.309 --> 00:22:10.789 Yeah, so we're very conscious about using gender specific he or she, 316 00:22:11.029 --> 00:22:15.099 your son or your yeah, rather than referring to the baby as as it. 317 00:22:15.819 --> 00:22:19.420 You know who. I'll share this testimony at some point. I won't 318 00:22:19.420 --> 00:22:22.259 get into any length. Maybe we'll have this young lady on. Okay, 319 00:22:22.460 --> 00:22:26.900 the young lady who had put a post out on facebook and also put it 320 00:22:26.940 --> 00:22:30.250 out in our blog about the young lady who, you know, I thought 321 00:22:30.369 --> 00:22:33.569 was actually going into a board after we had talked to her and I said 322 00:22:33.569 --> 00:22:37.369 please, don't do this, and she turned around and said I'm going in 323 00:22:37.450 --> 00:22:40.250 for a refunds if she got her money back. I mean, awesome, 324 00:22:40.329 --> 00:22:42.009 the Lord just moves. She got on, went on the mobile unit after 325 00:22:42.089 --> 00:22:45.519 having been in the in the abortion center. She went on the mobile unit, 326 00:22:45.839 --> 00:22:48.160 gave her life to the Lord. Her and her mother actually came back 327 00:22:48.400 --> 00:22:53.319 that next Friday, wow and gave brought me a gift basket in a car 328 00:22:53.559 --> 00:22:59.789 to saying thank you for being a voice that was there. And her mother 329 00:22:59.869 --> 00:23:03.630 actually was talking about the baby and she used the word is. She said, 330 00:23:03.670 --> 00:23:04.990 yeah, it's going to be such a blessing. And she said, 331 00:23:06.069 --> 00:23:07.829 wait a minute, I shouldn't say the word it. Oh, even she 332 00:23:08.069 --> 00:23:12.740 bet, even she recognized it. Even she recognized sometimes in our regular common 333 00:23:12.779 --> 00:23:17.420 language we might use the word it referring to the baby in the womb because 334 00:23:17.460 --> 00:23:19.299 you don't know whether it's a boy or girl, which he even caught herself 335 00:23:19.339 --> 00:23:23.339 sit. I didn't refer to our baby as ant. You my grandchild, 336 00:23:23.420 --> 00:23:26.329 isn't it? That's my grand baby. Yeah, yeah, it's yes, 337 00:23:26.450 --> 00:23:30.410 I'm story. Yeah, and another word that we use a lot is blessing, 338 00:23:32.130 --> 00:23:36.490 and that's the positive what a child is. They are in less seen 339 00:23:36.569 --> 00:23:40.490 and throughout the Bible every child is described as a blessing. Yeah, but 340 00:23:40.849 --> 00:23:45.279 the the negative, the words that are used in the abortion industry and from 341 00:23:45.319 --> 00:23:48.920 the mothers themselves is that this is a problem, right, yeah, or 342 00:23:49.640 --> 00:23:55.710 if cold, situation or condition. Yeah, and sometimes just shifting the focus 343 00:23:55.750 --> 00:23:57.789 is not a negative one. It doesn't need to be a negative one. 344 00:23:57.869 --> 00:24:03.349 Yeah, and that that baby is a blessing. So one of the things 345 00:24:03.390 --> 00:24:07.630 that I did that was really, I think, illuminating, is going to 346 00:24:07.750 --> 00:24:11.900 the website of the abortion center, okay, and and looking at some of 347 00:24:11.940 --> 00:24:17.380 the abortion center here on the tree, abortion center here Charlotte. Right. 348 00:24:18.059 --> 00:24:22.140 So that there's so many and I won't hit every one of them, but 349 00:24:22.819 --> 00:24:26.849 one of the line said we believe every woman should have control of her life 350 00:24:27.009 --> 00:24:32.250 and her personal decisions. So I'm reading that and that sounds wonderful. That's 351 00:24:32.329 --> 00:24:34.089 true. You know, you should have control of your life in your personal 352 00:24:34.130 --> 00:24:37.730 decision. But this is what they mean. That they're not saying. What 353 00:24:37.809 --> 00:24:42.720 they truly mean is every mother should be able to murder their own child without 354 00:24:42.720 --> 00:24:48.960 anyone else telling her it is wicked, evil, unnatural or wrong. Yeah, 355 00:24:48.200 --> 00:24:52.599 that now, if they wrote that, if a doubt, that would 356 00:24:52.640 --> 00:24:56.029 be very well received by their client tail. Probably not. I probably would 357 00:24:56.029 --> 00:25:00.789 lower the rates at which they were able to make money off of killing children. 358 00:25:00.829 --> 00:25:06.269 Private appointment, private appointment. That sounds good, that that's a private 359 00:25:06.670 --> 00:25:11.420 they offer a private appointment. So what that is in actuality is a scheduled 360 00:25:11.500 --> 00:25:17.819 time when mothers would be able to get away with murdering their unborn child with 361 00:25:17.900 --> 00:25:22.849 the utmost secrecy for an increased cost. Yeah, but it's called a private 362 00:25:22.890 --> 00:25:27.849 appointment, which sounds very yeah, wonderful, it does. So, and 363 00:25:29.130 --> 00:25:32.849 and there's so much we won't get into all of them. But they, 364 00:25:33.250 --> 00:25:37.960 they, it's called reproductive healthcare instead of the brutal murder, yeah, of 365 00:25:37.000 --> 00:25:41.839 an unborn baby. They have counselors there who are said to be sincere, 366 00:25:42.079 --> 00:25:49.789 caring women who are committed to helping each individual patient complete their treatment. treatment. 367 00:25:51.109 --> 00:25:53.390 Yeah, okay, treatment. What is treatment? I mean treatment, 368 00:25:53.470 --> 00:25:56.630 you think. Okay, if you're having a treatment, that you have a 369 00:25:56.710 --> 00:25:59.869 condition. Of course, that's plays right into the whole thing. Pregnancy is 370 00:25:59.869 --> 00:26:02.630 a condition, right, as far as these people are concerned. Yeah, 371 00:26:03.509 --> 00:26:07.019 but yeah, so it sounds like treating a condition. It sounds like dealing 372 00:26:07.059 --> 00:26:11.140 with a condition. And this treatment is not the brutal murder order of an 373 00:26:11.180 --> 00:26:15.259 unborn baby. This is, you know, it's a treatment. Yes, 374 00:26:15.460 --> 00:26:18.049 the termination of a pregnancy. It's the removal of the product of conception. 375 00:26:18.089 --> 00:26:23.650 And get this, this kills me helping to complete their treatment with the best 376 00:26:23.970 --> 00:26:34.839 possible emotional, physical and spiritual outcome. Wow, that's on the abortion center 377 00:26:34.920 --> 00:26:41.279 website, that this treatment the killing of an unborn child created by God in 378 00:26:41.440 --> 00:26:52.990 his image. That treatment will be carefully completed for the best optimal spiritualcome. 379 00:26:53.029 --> 00:27:00.269 Yeah, which is blasphemy, lashman's Bologny. Yeah, I mean, goodness, 380 00:27:00.670 --> 00:27:06.180 abortion, as far as spiritually concerned, destroys women. Yeah, I 381 00:27:06.259 --> 00:27:10.420 mean we know, we've heard the testimonies, we've seen people coming out of 382 00:27:10.500 --> 00:27:14.980 that abortion clinic, just spiritually, emotionally, physically, yeah, just Straw. 383 00:27:15.140 --> 00:27:18.650 Yeah, this is not. I mean abortion is a spiritual thing, 384 00:27:18.809 --> 00:27:22.809 just like sacrificing a goat to the devil is a spiritual thanks, right, 385 00:27:22.849 --> 00:27:27.650 I mean this is yeah, it's a satanic thing. Yes, the destruction 386 00:27:29.569 --> 00:27:33.000 of an unborn child, image bearer of Almighty God. Yeah, you know. 387 00:27:33.200 --> 00:27:37.559 So that gets into some of the terminology as far as the scripture is 388 00:27:37.640 --> 00:27:45.150 concerned. When we look scripturally what the Bible describes the Unborn Child Ass. 389 00:27:45.230 --> 00:27:48.789 You know, we have terms like in someone thirty nine, you knit me 390 00:27:48.950 --> 00:27:52.509 together in my mother's womb. I mean what, what's the implications of those 391 00:27:52.549 --> 00:27:56.190 words when you think about me it together? Yeah, yeah, there's purposeful 392 00:27:56.390 --> 00:28:04.180 design and care and intricacy. Yeah, yeah, intricacy, purpose, even 393 00:28:04.299 --> 00:28:11.019 destiny. Love, yeah, love, care, fearfully and wonderfully made is 394 00:28:11.140 --> 00:28:12.569 in that same Oh, yes, some, right. So then you have 395 00:28:14.009 --> 00:28:18.769 terms like if fearfully wonderfully made, wonderful, it goes on to say in 396 00:28:18.849 --> 00:28:21.809 that Psalm and I love I love preaching about that song. Yeah, because 397 00:28:21.809 --> 00:28:26.130 there's so many good words in there, the best words. Yeah, marvelous 398 00:28:26.490 --> 00:28:29.640 are your works. Yeah, and that my soul knows real well that word 399 00:28:29.799 --> 00:28:33.119 marvelous. Yeah, when I think of it, I think of the Grand 400 00:28:33.160 --> 00:28:36.720 Canyon, I think of the God's creation, I think of looking at an 401 00:28:36.720 --> 00:28:41.319 ultrasound image of a baby in the womb and and marvel at the handiwork of 402 00:28:41.470 --> 00:28:45.029 God. Yeah, your mouth drops open, you're astounded. Right, and 403 00:28:45.190 --> 00:28:48.869 that's the words that the scripture uses concerning the child, that the abortion industry 404 00:28:48.910 --> 00:28:56.220 uses, words like you, product of conception and treatment, and condition, 405 00:28:56.420 --> 00:29:00.900 like pregnancies, a condition. Word of God uses these rich, powerful, 406 00:29:00.740 --> 00:29:07.019 life filled or right, like wonderful, like marvelous, like knit. Another 407 00:29:07.099 --> 00:29:10.849 word in that Psalm, and some one hundred and thirty nine is you covered 408 00:29:11.009 --> 00:29:14.970 me. Ever here be thought about that word. You covered me in my 409 00:29:15.089 --> 00:29:17.609 mother's WOM. You know, a couple of years ago I was meditating on 410 00:29:17.730 --> 00:29:22.289 that Psalm and just meditating on what does that mean? You covered me in 411 00:29:22.450 --> 00:29:29.279 my mother's WOM and it really means it speaks of the involvement of God. 412 00:29:29.759 --> 00:29:33.960 So David is the psalmist there and he's talking about how God he know. 413 00:29:33.039 --> 00:29:36.480 He starts the Psalm saying God, you know when I sit down and when 414 00:29:36.480 --> 00:29:37.910 I rise up, you know my thoughts from afar, you know all my 415 00:29:38.029 --> 00:29:41.710 days before even one of them came to pass. And so he's talking about 416 00:29:41.710 --> 00:29:45.029 how God knows him and loves him and has plans for him. And then 417 00:29:45.029 --> 00:29:48.950 he takes it, of course, from just being outside the womb, being 418 00:29:49.069 --> 00:29:52.390 on the earth. He's talking about being inside the women. He said you 419 00:29:52.509 --> 00:29:56.380 covered me, means you were involved, you were concerned protecting you. You 420 00:29:56.539 --> 00:29:59.779 cover me now, but you covered me w while I was my mother's way 421 00:29:59.779 --> 00:30:02.819 back then. Yeah, and the moment of conception. So you know, 422 00:30:02.900 --> 00:30:07.369 scripturally, words means something. Yeah, words like what we talked about earlier, 423 00:30:07.369 --> 00:30:12.210 about fornication and repentance. And then, of course those are, I 424 00:30:12.289 --> 00:30:19.769 don't say negative words, they're meant to bring about negative connotations and ultimately positive 425 00:30:19.769 --> 00:30:22.920 change. Right, but then again, you have these life giving words and 426 00:30:23.039 --> 00:30:27.559 you have the word like gift. Children are a gift to your children. 427 00:30:27.720 --> 00:30:32.960 Some thirty or one, twenty seven children are a heritage. Yeah, from 428 00:30:33.039 --> 00:30:36.230 the Lord less. It is he whose quivers full. So, yeah, 429 00:30:36.309 --> 00:30:38.990 we ever full is presented as a joy. where? How many people with 430 00:30:40.109 --> 00:30:45.829 large families find that? People chastise the Oh yeah, yeah, and they're 431 00:30:45.829 --> 00:30:49.500 my wife has come to me and that just been, I don't know, 432 00:30:49.740 --> 00:30:53.220 offended probably not the right word, but distraught, whatever it's like. Yeah, 433 00:30:53.299 --> 00:30:56.420 you know, is that the store and everybody's looking at me. I 434 00:30:56.460 --> 00:30:57.579 had all the kids with me, she don't normally take all the kids to 435 00:30:57.700 --> 00:31:00.740 the store, but yeah, we have eight kids, by the way, 436 00:31:00.779 --> 00:31:03.569 for those who are listening right. And so she's walking through the store and 437 00:31:03.609 --> 00:31:07.970 she's all these people are looking at her. You know, she even had 438 00:31:07.049 --> 00:31:10.529 people ask of them. And if any of you guys are listening that have 439 00:31:10.690 --> 00:31:12.410 large families, you probably going to ask this. Are All these kids you're 440 00:31:12.849 --> 00:31:15.690 you know, are they all from the same any poor thing or whatever? 441 00:31:15.769 --> 00:31:19.440 Yeah, thing, bless your horn. Yeah, and one person even asked 442 00:31:19.440 --> 00:31:22.680 her. Actually, a couple of people best your they all from the same 443 00:31:22.720 --> 00:31:26.079 father as like, okay, words mean something and you need to put those 444 00:31:26.119 --> 00:31:30.359 words back in your mouth. That's ridiculous, but I encourage your one time 445 00:31:30.359 --> 00:31:33.549 I said, you know what, imagine everybody's looking at you funny, whatever. 446 00:31:33.589 --> 00:31:37.470 Imagine you're walking through the store and you've got a cart full of money 447 00:31:37.910 --> 00:31:41.990 and everybody's looking at you funny, and they're looking at you strange because you're 448 00:31:41.029 --> 00:31:45.230 pushing a cart full of money and they all wanted. Well, they may 449 00:31:45.269 --> 00:31:48.779 be looking at you funny because they think you're flouting your money or whatever. 450 00:31:48.099 --> 00:31:51.339 Who knows why they're looking at you funny, but are you really going to 451 00:31:51.460 --> 00:31:53.539 care. Right, you got a cart full of money. Right. Well, 452 00:31:53.539 --> 00:31:56.700 according to the word of God and the word that God's uses, children 453 00:31:56.740 --> 00:32:00.380 are a blessing or a heritage from the right. When you're pushing a cart 454 00:32:00.420 --> 00:32:04.769 full of kids through the store, you're pushing more than a cartful of money, 455 00:32:04.809 --> 00:32:07.170 you're pushing a car full of blessing. So you know again, God's 456 00:32:07.250 --> 00:32:12.730 Word Affirms Certain truths that we need to grab a hold of. Hey, 457 00:32:12.930 --> 00:32:16.440 and in words do mean something and as we use really and as the as 458 00:32:16.680 --> 00:32:21.759 the language goes. I heard this, I think, from Albert Molar just 459 00:32:21.880 --> 00:32:24.160 a few weeks ago, a couple weeks ago. As the language goes, 460 00:32:24.920 --> 00:32:30.869 thus goes the culture. And so you think about expanding beyond the pro pro 461 00:32:31.109 --> 00:32:37.390 life, but just things like the word gay to describe homosexuality. It's there's 462 00:32:37.390 --> 00:32:42.190 a very different picture when you hear the word gay first when it first came 463 00:32:42.230 --> 00:32:45.500 out. It gay is happy, joyful, whatever, and and it was 464 00:32:45.579 --> 00:32:51.900 a way to to make homosexuality very unaccepted back then when it first came out. 465 00:32:52.220 --> 00:32:54.539 Yeah, and and to change how people would look at that. And 466 00:32:54.900 --> 00:33:00.890 and that's what's happening big time in the abortion industry. Is the words are 467 00:33:00.009 --> 00:33:06.490 being used to make our culture believe that this is an innocuous and even a 468 00:33:06.650 --> 00:33:09.569 good yeah, yeah, and it's a sad reality. So guys it. 469 00:33:09.690 --> 00:33:14.519 We won't encourage you. You know again, words mean something, words have 470 00:33:14.640 --> 00:33:16.839 value to them. We need to be intentional about the words that we use. 471 00:33:16.839 --> 00:33:21.720 Yeah, we don't, of course, need to be nasty when we're 472 00:33:21.759 --> 00:33:24.759 communicating with people, but we do need to be clear, are as articulate 473 00:33:24.799 --> 00:33:28.710 as possible. Yeah, we need to be biblical, you know, when 474 00:33:28.750 --> 00:33:31.750 we're using terminology and now, it doesn't mean we need to be like super 475 00:33:32.269 --> 00:33:35.710 lofty in our speech, but if we do use, and I think we 476 00:33:35.750 --> 00:33:38.829 should use, biblical language. Yeah, like I mentioned the example of using 477 00:33:38.869 --> 00:33:44.099 the word fornication and then explain those words, explain what those words mean, 478 00:33:44.180 --> 00:33:49.180 the word repentance, and then explain what that word means. So, as 479 00:33:49.299 --> 00:33:53.819 we're standing for life, as we're standing for truth, it's also contend for 480 00:33:53.900 --> 00:33:58.650 the words that we use. Yeah, contend for the truths that are embodied 481 00:33:58.690 --> 00:34:02.769 in those words. And as the Lord obviously to help us. When you're 482 00:34:02.769 --> 00:34:07.409 reaching out at an abortion clinic, you've got fifteen seconds. Well, at 483 00:34:07.409 --> 00:34:12.000 least we do. Yeah, the most scenarios. Yeah, from their car 484 00:34:12.320 --> 00:34:15.800 to the door, when they're walking down the sidewalk, everywhere it can got. 485 00:34:15.880 --> 00:34:19.119 Yeah, everywhere, gaster, she seconds. Yeah, every word counts. 486 00:34:19.280 --> 00:34:21.840 Yeah, he said every word matters. Yeah. So we need to 487 00:34:21.880 --> 00:34:23.949 be intentional, which is, you know, part of part of what we 488 00:34:24.030 --> 00:34:28.070 do in our trainings and stuff like that. Right, part of what we're 489 00:34:28.070 --> 00:34:30.670 doing on the sidewalks for life site is trying to teach people, yeah, 490 00:34:30.829 --> 00:34:37.829 how to speak, how to be effective. Some folks have this mentality of 491 00:34:37.869 --> 00:34:40.780 add an abortion clinic. We need to steer away from words like murder. 492 00:34:42.219 --> 00:34:45.019 Hey, just your away from talking about God. Even. That's not what 493 00:34:45.139 --> 00:34:51.940 we found at all. We found that your best method is to be graciously 494 00:34:52.099 --> 00:34:54.449 forthright, like you don't need to be around the bush. If woman's there 495 00:34:54.489 --> 00:34:58.489 for an abortion, ask her, are you here from an abortion? Don't 496 00:34:58.530 --> 00:35:00.969 talk about the weather, don't talk about the way. You don't time man 497 00:35:01.010 --> 00:35:04.769 or what do you know? Don't time that baby's on its way to destruction. 498 00:35:04.809 --> 00:35:07.679 Yeah, and you've got to bring truth into the equation. Right and 499 00:35:07.760 --> 00:35:12.760 again, you do it graciously. I don't think it's effective. I actually 500 00:35:12.760 --> 00:35:15.239 I know it's not effective. Just be yelling abortion is murder of the whole 501 00:35:15.239 --> 00:35:19.880 time. Right, but it is effective to bring that word into the equation. 502 00:35:19.920 --> 00:35:22.630 Yeah, to talk about the fact that abortion is murder. Yeah, 503 00:35:23.590 --> 00:35:27.550 I think, certainly in the eyes of God. Yeah, there's just en 504 00:35:27.550 --> 00:35:30.550 nothing. Talking about that word and breaking that word down when you have an 505 00:35:30.590 --> 00:35:36.380 opportunity to an abortion minded woman is a powerful way to show her the reality 506 00:35:36.380 --> 00:35:38.219 of what she's doing. Right, but we need the Lord's help, right. 507 00:35:38.300 --> 00:35:42.659 Yeah, God always. Yeah, we need God's help to help us 508 00:35:42.659 --> 00:35:45.820 to bring clarity in the situations. I hope this podcast is help you guys 509 00:35:45.820 --> 00:35:49.420 a little bit with words. I hope this has been a blessing. Hope 510 00:35:49.500 --> 00:35:52.289 all the podcasts are blessing to you. Let us know. Let us know 511 00:35:52.409 --> 00:35:54.289 that this podcast was a blessing to you. Let us know if you have 512 00:35:54.409 --> 00:35:58.730 ideas for future podcast. We're going to do one in the next couple of 513 00:35:58.809 --> 00:36:00.809 weeks about adoption. Yeah, that'd be esome. Yeah, and talking about 514 00:36:00.849 --> 00:36:07.400 adoption, I get. I mean in the past month we've gotten messages through 515 00:36:07.480 --> 00:36:10.440 facebooks or public facebook page about, you know, my family, we really 516 00:36:10.440 --> 00:36:14.519 want to adopt. Is there any chance you can connect us with an abortion 517 00:36:14.719 --> 00:36:16.239 minded mom at the abortion center that we can adopt her child. And, 518 00:36:16.280 --> 00:36:20.829 yeah, I've personally gotten too yes, yeah, I've gotten a bunch. 519 00:36:20.949 --> 00:36:24.750 And so we're going to talk a little bit about how we mention adoption. 520 00:36:24.789 --> 00:36:29.909 Yeah, at the abortion centers, and when it's appropriate and it's not appropriate. 521 00:36:29.949 --> 00:36:32.739 You know, listen, guys, there are some inappropriate times to mention 522 00:36:32.780 --> 00:36:37.139 adoption. There are sometimes that a adoption can be a non starter in a 523 00:36:37.219 --> 00:36:40.579 conversation, can even be the deal breaker. Ah, yeah, what sends 524 00:36:40.619 --> 00:36:45.099 them running in? Yeah, I've had conversations stop writing their tracks I mentioned 525 00:36:45.139 --> 00:36:49.690 the word adoption and a woman going to the abortion center who would otherwise continue 526 00:36:49.730 --> 00:36:52.690 to engage. Anyway. We're going to talk about that in the coming weeks 527 00:36:52.730 --> 00:36:55.769 with Jessica Moline. Hopefully we'll be able to pin her down. She's with 528 00:36:55.889 --> 00:37:00.449 option, adoption, but we hope you guys are blessed with this podcast. 529 00:37:00.530 --> 00:37:07.519 Please share it and until next time, God bless give me our love for 530 00:37:07.760 --> 00:37:20.949 love, give me our love for gratitude. I know it will cost me 531 00:37:21.110 --> 00:37:28.869 my life. Nothing's too precious. And some met you
