    is an acceptable way to stem the tide, to prevent, or to irradicate abortion? (This isn't a pro- or anti- abortion thread, but I'm interested in seeing people's views on this.)

    Please discuss afterwards. Thanks!

    Brother;
    Your poll is flawed. It does not mention the MOST POWERFUL tool we have. I submit that this tool is not being used to the extent that it should be.

    That tool is;

    PRAYER AND REPENTANCE

    In HIS service;
    Jim

    Amen Jim.

    2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    I believe Scott is probably referring to the post-prayer action after we pray and repent.

    Hank...not to change the subject, but funny you should bring that verse up. We had a guy in S.S. class the other day state that he wishes people would quit throwing that verse around because that verse was directed to the Israelites and God is not obligated himself to us now (via that verse). He may well answer, but not because of the promise in that verse...

    Any merit to his theory?

    I believe we must look at the immediate context of that verse first, but remember that we are also called by His name.

    I figured - who in the would would not select prayer, so I didn't include it. If anyone would not pray for girls who are in the process of decided whether to get an abortion or not, well, then, I don't think they'll be voting on the poll anyway.

    Abortion is a terrible thing and there certainly are some acceptible political means to stop it or at least slow it down, however, nothing works as well as the change that comes when someone accepts Christ as their Savior and their life is made new. 2 Cor. 5:17.
