Saints, why do we continue to send Christian children to schools that are dedicated to challenging our values? Honestly, I do not believe there is any way we can keep our kids short of taking drastic measures with their education and socialization. We must begin raising children in Christ infused greenhouses or they will all be lost.

This is an excellent message from the mildly handicapped abortion survivor Gianna Jessen. It is one of the most striking presentations against abortion that you will ever hear. That being said, there are other elements here to consider. In this address she is speaking at Queen’s Hall, Parliment House in Victoria, Australia. In other words, this is not a church it is a public forum. No doubt many in the audience are hostile to her views. Her topic was abortion and she spoke the day before a debate on decriminalizing abortion in the province. However, beyond her impassioned plea for abortion, she demonstrates something that really moves my heart. Though abortion is her topic, she utilizes the opportunity to make confrontational statements that engage the conscience with regard to the issue of Christ and human morality. Without using these specific words, she calls them to the fact that their very humanity demands Christian morality.
In an age where, sadly, the church is losing young people at a rate that will threaten its very survival without some sort of awakening, she is a powerful example of how a young person can use their testimony and their gift to confront men with the gospel. As I mentioned, the setting is not a church and she’s not a preacher, but I dare say she exposes the heart more in these 15 minutes than most preachers in America do in their 45 minutes on Sunday. Though my words are awkward in this post, I hope you can see what I’m driving at. My heart burns for a generation that will present an authentic witness to the earth of Jesus. They will be preachers that confront men and drive the wedge of Christianity right into their consciences with no regard for the superficial civility of society that embraces barbarisms such as abortion. As you watch this brief message, please cry out with me that God would give us 10,000 Giannas who do not just address abortion, but serve as prophets to men’s souls and are not ashamed of the issue of Jesus, the most divisive issue in history.
