There is a frustration that comes with being pro-life, frustration that very little seems to change as babies are slaughtered in the womb every day.
Morris Wilson, a past member of the Kansas Unorganized Citizens Militia
who has since renounced his ties to the group, told the WSJ that (Scott) Roeder
had been a fellow member. He spoke strongly against abortion and “felt he needed
to do something,” Wilson said.
Murder is not the answer to that frustration.
If we believe in the sanctity of life, we also need to believe in the God who gives that life sanctity. And if we believe in that God, the God of the Bible, then we need to trust that He is working in the perfect way to bring this tragedy to an end. "For we know Him Who said, 'Vengeance is Mine; I will repay.' And again, 'The Lord will judge His people'" (Hebrews 10:30).
He will judge us on how we address this situation. Do we murder, like our opponents do everyday in abortion clinics, or do we sacrifice and extend love through crisis pregnancy centers, adoption? Will we "visit orphans and widows in their affliction" (James 1:27)?
Justice will ultimately out. If we believe in God, we have to believe that. Our job is to keep at it in peaceful ways.
George Tiller's life, as reprehensible as his actions were, was just as precious to God as everyone else's life. Up to his very last breath, the possibility of repentance and salvation was there for Tiller. No one had the right to take his life without the due process of law. Unfortunately, the law does not at this time consider abortion to be murder. What Tiller did was legal. Our entire nation will be judged for that. And Scott Roeder will be judged for murder.
