Roe vs. Wade

Hey, Church Family!

You have probably already heard that the Supreme Court decided to overturn Roe v. Wade. The question many are asking is this: Should we, as Christians, celebrate this ruling? The simple answer is a resounding yes! God’s Word instructs us to care about and act on matters of biblical justice. Micah 6:8 says, “Do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God.”

Church family, this decision by the Supreme Court is one of the most significant acts of justice in modern history. Therefore, we should thank God and celebrate the court’s ruling.

At Eagles Landing, we take God and His Word seriously. In fact, the Word of God, not man’s opinion, drives everything we do. With that said, here are a few things I believe we should reemphasize:

First, at Eagle’s Landing, we value all human life. We believe that unborn babies, from the moment of conception, are human beings made in the image of God. The Bible speaks clearly regarding God’s involvement and purpose in the creation of human life:


  • Genesis 1:26–28
    Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 


  • Psalm 139:13–16
    For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
    I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. 


These passages demonstrate that God is intimately involved in the creation of human life from the moment of conception. Scientific evidence also agrees that human life begins from the moment of conception. Why does this matter? It matters because every baby in the womb is a baby crafted and created by God; and therefore, has inherent value.

Second, at Eagle’s Landing, we value persistent prayer. The Supreme Court decision is a monumental step in the right direction, but the road ahead will require much perseverance and much prayer. We need to pray for the courage to fight for and defend the vulnerable. Here are four specific things we should pray:


  1. Pray for the unborn. Ask God to protect them and to provide for them while they are in the womb.


  2. Pray for women considering abortion. Ask God to help them find help and hope in Jesus. Ask God to draw them close to Himself and help them choose life for their baby.


  3. Pray for those who bear the burden of a previous abortion. Ask God to help them find forgiveness in Jesus. Ask God to comfort with the promise that He alone can make all things new. Ask God to help them cling to His promise that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 


  4. Pray for each other. Listen, abortion is not a political issue; it’s a biblical issue. As Christians who call Jesus Lord, regardless of our political affiliations, we must stand united and agree to protect the weak and vulnerable, which includes unborn babies.

Third, at Eagle’s Landing, we must step up and get involved. Now is not the time to sit back and spectate; it’s time to step-up and participate in the fight for life. The gospel of Jesus compels us to serve like Jesus, which includes caring for pregnant women who may be concerned about their ability to support their baby, may be fearful of becoming a mother, or may have been a victim of rape. We will need men and women to join in the work of fostering, adopting, getting involved in pregnancy resource centers, and caring for women in crisis and/or experiencing unexpected pregnancies.

At Eagle’s Landing, we partner with several ministries and non-profits, like The Bridge Wellness South and Families4Families, that serve this tremendous cause. We would love to help you get better connected.

We are thankful for the Supreme Court’s decision, and we are ready to help. If anyone has questions on how to get involved, please reach out!
