Despite the intense environment and the constant verbal curses and threats, I love ministering at the Genocide Awareness Project events. The graphic images of abortion cut to the heart of the issue, as every good preacher and evangelist should wish to do. People don't seek a savior when they see no evil. The most dangerous kind of evil is the evil you don't recognize. Nobody who sees our pictures fails to perceive, at some level, the evil acts that created them. The soul wrestles with how to respond as soon as it sees these pictures. For that reason, these pictures provide a powerful opportunity to share the Gospel of grace.
Three students at App State in Boone, NC, wanted to know why I had come out to their campus with this grotesque display. I said I want people to see the truth about abortion because nobody else will tell them, and they will find the truth too late. But I also said I came to their campus because I care about them. "If you have already made the mistake of having an abortion, there is mercy and grace for you." These particular students had spent a significant amount of time arguing that, in the case of rape, deformity, or the mother's lack of desire to be a parent, the child would be better off aborted (they rarely say "dead," which is more accurately descriptive). I told them that I came to their campus to tell them that their value doesn't come from their brain capacity or ability to make money or get good grades. Their value comes from God making them in His image and loving them. I assured them that, according to Revelation 4:11 (see below), their existence is not a result of their parent's or their own decision. Their existence is purely at the pleasure of God Himself. God wants them to exist, and that is what gives them value.
"Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will, they existed and were created." Revelation 4:11 (emphasis mine).
