Preaching the Gospel & Election @ an Abortion Mill + a Divine Intervention
After preaching and laboring the Gospel at my general locations, I was enroute to this Planned Parenthood. As I arrived I saw a former Pastor and His Church as they were just leaving. It was a nice reunion. A brother from my Church arrived, and we labored together. Since God gives grace to the humble, but He resists the proud, I applied that in our evangelism. Those that were proud, were met with strong rebukes and audible resistance, but in one particular incident, I believe was a ‘Divine intervention.’
A young beautiful women ‘Jane Doe’ exited her vehicle and began to walk into PP, but apparently after watching and hearing God’s warnings, she ‘changed her mind,’ and approached us. Jane professed to be a “born again Christian,” and she ‘seemingly’ was repenting before our eyes. She allowed us to minister to her for over one hour (which is unusual at abortion mills). She heard both the Law and Gospel many times and was taught the meaning of Biblical repentance, and a Biblical soteriology (as she stated she had already “accepted Jesus” and was “baptized”). I am thankful for my partner because it would have been awkward being alone with her, as she talked much about her struggles with sexual temptation. Jane did ask me to turn-off my chest-mounted GoPro for a more “private conversation,” and so I did. I assured her I would not upload our previous conversation.
Though she believed all Biblical truths that were given to her, and after over an hour of conversation, I was honest with her telling her, “I cannot say you are saved, nor will I say that you’re not.” As Charles Spurgeon said even more boldly,
“If the professed convert distinctly and deliberately declares that he knows the Lord’s will but does not mean to attend to it, you are not to pamper his presumption, but it is your duty to assure him that he is not saved. Do not suppose that the Gospel is magnified or God glorified by going to the worldlings and telling them that they may be saved at this moment by simply accepting Christ as their Savior, while they are wedded to their idols, and their hearts are still in love with sin. If I do so I tell them a lie, pervert the Gospel, insult Christ, and turn the grace of God into lasciviousness.”
Had I been a woman, I would have taken Jane to Mimi’s Café down the street (it’s a chick place), as she seemed to want to be with us longer than we gave her. This is why we need more Christian women outside abortion mills. But ‘some’ women complain there are not enough men. As the men should be the ones who preach, women are more suitable for the relationship/discipleship aspect of this ministry.
Our time with her was important (and to her as well), but sadly so many entered while we spoke with her. Nonetheless, Jane changed her mind to not enter the PP, and my partner and I escorted Jane to the San Berd. Pregnancy Counseling Center. Sadly this counseling center is ecumenical and shares a false Arminian Gospel. They’ve allowed Roman Catholics on their Board, and even a Muslim woman working in the office. But for now, ‘it is the best the world has to offer’ Jane. They will provide her with free tests, exams, a sonogram, as well as other services. I let the receptionist know that we’ve already shared the Gospel with Jane and that she already has a tract with her (in other words, please leave that part alone). The last thing Jane needs is another professing Christian tell her to “accept Jesus,” or “repeat this prayer.” However they do have a new Director, so maybe it will change for the better? The previous Director was hostile to us preaching the Gospel an abortion mill.
Did Jane truly repent and trust in Christ? Was she already saved? Did she get saved? I cannot know. As I said before,
I did invite Jane to our church (which I never do), and my partner recommended another Church in San Bernardino (it’s much closer to her), but it seems she’s committed to an Arminian church that her father wants her to attend with him. I told her she needs to fear and honor our Holy Father more than our earthly fathers, and she needs to dump her boyfriend that keeps talking her back into fornication.
When we said goodbye to Jane (at the pregnancy counseling center), she was again crying. Thanks for your prayers, and please add Jane to your prayers. Soli Deo Gloria 100%. The following video depicts experts of this labor of love, but without Janes counseling and conversation.
