In this sermon, Pastor Matt makes a strong declaration for total abolition of the killing of the preborn. He shows from Scripture that this is innocent blood and all Americans therefore have blood guilt. He takes to task the lesser magistrates for failing to defy the Federal beast. Many wait for a Federal solution to the slaughter, failing to realize that the Federal government is the problem and no solution will be forthcoming from it. Meanwhile the lower magistrates act like there is nothing they can do - "but obey" - so contrary to Scripture and the history of Western Civilization. Not one state legislature, not one common council, not one governor, not one mayor have taken a stand and interposed for these little ones. The lesser magistrates have gone along with this shedding of innocent blood. They have failed to do their duty and interpose against the unjust immoral decree of the higher authority. For decades the pro-life institutions and the pro-life politicians have propagated mere minuscule measures to protect the preborn which do nothing more than placate the pro-lifers; legitimize the pro-life institutions, and aggrandize the politicians. It needs to end. Christians need to demand of the magistrates complete abolition of this bloodshed. 37 min.

Great Sermon! Very powerful defense of children in the womb and our duty to interpose.

in a word..thunderstruck! I've heard this sermon several times and each time I find it more impactful. Pastor Matt lays bare the depravity of abortion, the abetting of the church in the matter, and the just wrath it invites from God. ALL CITIZENS should hear this message in order to better associate their societal role to the proliferation of good or evil. And as for the literal act of hearing, as I've referenced to others, feel free to turn on the recording and then proceed to move to the other end of a busy factory floor or airplane hangar, etc--you'll still be able to hear Matt through it all. But then, it's a good thing to finally hear and understand the truth of abortion and our complicity in its practice.
THANK YOU Pastor Matt for your untempered conviction and leadership among the throngs of mental toddlers of our age!
