That God’s people may be helped and Jesus receive the glory in everything:
“If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?”
– Proverbs 24:11,12
This was the old abortion clinic we used to protest at. Downtown. We thought we if we could save one life it would be worth it. But I try to think of the young girls. It must be tremendous pressure to have a unexpected pregnancy. And i can’t imagine the awful guilt and pain that comes with abortion. I don’t fault them for it I only pray Jesus forgives and heals them. People are so lost and bound up in sin and the devil can make just about anything look right if you don’t know Jesus Christ. So there is mercy and redemption. Jesus forgives.
I was sentenced to 8 days. God was faithful. I did 6 on 8 days. One prayer for salvation each day. 6 men came to Christ. Jesus can walk through walls. And set the captives free. Jesus is a wonderful Saviour.
After this the Feds threatened us with RICO and that was pretty much the end of the sit ins. I mention this because it came up once before about christian people doing nothing. Only a few people know about it and I hesitate to share because it really is sacred to me. Leading someone to Christ in a situation like that. God heard my prayer. He redeemed the time.
This is the actual building. There may have been a good fifty or more of us that got arrested that day. The idea was to put pressure on the judicial system and the jails and make it unprofitable for the courts. But I think most every body paid the fine. Long time ago now. There was some opposition in jail but don’t remember it being too hard. Jesus was with me and there was an end in sight. Kinda funny because I didn’t really understand grace back then. And to this day I don’t know if it was the right thing to do. But we tried in our little way.
…may God have mercy on us and forgive us…
