ERLC Socialist Who Compared Abortion to Climate Change Suddenly Dies of Heart Attack

In 2016, at the ERLC’s Evangelicals for Life Conference—which was headed up by the ERLC’s Russell Moore—one speaker, Ron Sider, an ecumenical social activist and author of Catholics and Evangelicals for the Common Good, gave an impassioned speech on what he thought it meant to be pro-life.

In that speech, he compared the egregious sin of abortion to things like smoking, climate change, government vaccine programs, racism, and capital punishment. He then urged Evangelicals to take up these causes in order to demonstrate a truly biblical, pro-life ethic.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

Unfortunately, Sider only demonstrated that he himself did not have a solid grasp of biblical theology or the gospel. Sadly, Ron Sider has passed away, according to a social media post published by his son, Ted.

According to Christians for Social Action, “Ron died of cardiac arrest, following a hospital stay for treatment for some ongoing health conditions.”

While we will pray for Ron’s family and friends, again, we do not speculate on the state of his soul beyond what we can know. As with the passing of Bethel Redding’s pastor’s wife, Beni Johnson, we understand that Sider lived a life and practiced a ministry under the guise of Christianity that was largely devoid of a sound understanding of the gospel.
