Earlier this month, Chad Bird wrote a post that cannot go unmentioned. Does God forgive those who have had an abortion? Today’s Evangelicals have elevated a few sins (abortion being one of them) to levels which come close to eclipsing the gospel. These issues are important. They are very important, but when we begin to make them so important that those who have participated in these sins feel as if they are unforgivable we have a crisis on our hands. From Bird’s post (speaking to those who are now saved):
It is not a question of whether God can forgive you, or even if he will forgive you. He already has. When you see a cross, you see the smile of your Father. He’s not mad at you. He’s overjoyed that you’re his daughter. He’s happy that you are part of his family. He talks of you to the angels. “Look at my daughter,” he says. “She is beautiful. She is pure. She is the apple of my eye. She is just the way I want her to be.” All of heaven resounds with angelic voices that sing songs of how dear you are . . .
