"...A Christian must be a sign of contradiction to the world...A Christian is one who all his life chooses between good and evil, lies and truth, love and hatred, God and Satan...Today more than ever there is a need for our light to shine, so that through us, through our deeds, through our choices, people can see the Father who is in Heaven." Jerzy Popieluszko, 1947-1884
Even before Charles Colson published his book Gideon's Torch in 1995, he had to include a disclaimer that anything in the book that echoed reality was inadvertent. Now there are even more parallels between reality and the fictional situations in his book.
After an abortion doctor is killed, the new President of the US decides that he must crack down on the "terrorist anti-abortionists" that are responsible. But since they cannot find the actual killer, they make the entire pro-life movement the brunt of harassment and arrests. Far-fetched, right? Just look at this quote featured in the Patriot Post's Chronicle today:
"Is [Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius] gonna get through the, the terrorism of the, of the anti-abortion people?" --MSNBC's Chris Matthews
Let our light shine and let our choices show the Father who is in Heaven!
