This episode of LifeChat is part four of a four-part series covering the four arguments of pro-choice Christians. Roland Warren, Care Net’s President and CEO, and Vincent DiCaro, Care Net’s Chief Outreach Officer, sat down to address some of the concerns that Christians who profess to be pro-choice have around the life issue.
If you're a Christian who professes to be pro-choice, you might be saying, "This series has been helpful. But what if I'm still uncertain about when life begins?" In this special episode, Roland and Vince discuss how to think and what to do with the question of when life begins.
What If I Am Still Uncertain About When Life Begins?
By now, hopefully, you've followed along for the first three parts of this series. At this point, you might be thinking, "Yeah, but I'm just still uncertain about when life actually begins." Maybe your thought is, "Sure, I get it. If and when there's life, we need to protect it. But I'm not actually sure when life begins." This is a common line of questioning from believers seeking to know what to do and how to think.
That said, the well-intentioned Christian will keep asking this question. Sadly, at least in my experience, most of those who ask this question about when life begins—and seem to struggle with it—they tend to be the ones who support abortion. One will say, "Yeah, I support abortion, because I don't know when life begins."
At Care Net, we believe the opposite should happen. If you aren't sure how to answer the question of "when life begins" - we believe you should consider landing on the side of caution—on the side of life. Roland and Vince address this question in much greater depth and detail. I encourage you to watch the video or listen to the podcast version of their discussion.
As always, the entire point of this four-part series is to help you address these major questions—for yourself first—then maybe you can have meaningful talks with others. Whether you are pro-choice or you know Christians who are pro-choice, we all need to look honestly at these questions around life, and know how to think and what to do based on the answers.
Our hope is this, after considering our series, we hope you will continue to genuinely ask questions, know what you believe, and find a way to be Pro Abundant Life.
As always, we welcome comments and questions about any of this series. We're happy to continue addressing any questions you might have about the life issue. It's critical we know how to address these important issues as Christians.
