Rachel Held Evans is a friend an ally of evangelical lady preacher, Beth Moore, as well as other professing Christians, such as Jen Hatmaker. Held Evans made her debut in 2008when she — a professing Christian — questioned whether or not evangelicals “had it right” on the issue of LGBTQ.
Of course, the Scriptures are clear on the issue of homosexuality and abortion. It is not that the Scriptures need to be debated about what they teach, it’s about whether or not people like Rachel Held Evans want to continue to suppress the truth about what God says about human life and morality so they can continue to live for themselves.
In an ultimate display of selfishness, Held Evans, a professing Christian (of course she isn’t a real Christian, but she has many Christian followers), asserts that she isn’t sure what she would do if she were told by a doctor that her unborn child may have a birth defect affecting the “quality” of the child’s life.
The problem here isn’t that Held Evans is concerned with the quality of the child’s life. Held Evans is concerned about the quality of her own life. She — and other abortion supporters just like her — see children not as a gift from God made in the image of God, but as a burden. Further, a child that may need special care and extra attention would, in Held Evans’ eyes, decrease her own “quality of life.”
This is the sickness of the pro-choice movement. You can’t call yourself a Christian while holding to anti-Christ beliefs. The gospel calls us to lay our own lives down, pick up our cross, and follow Jesus. Held Evans and the many pro-choice (or undecided) people out there have failed to see the goodness of God and the gift of salvation in Christ. They are, regardless of their claims, unregenerate and need the forgiveness of Jesus Christ found only through repentance and faith.
