Preaching to the Choir Needed


Preaching to the Choir Needed

Some well-intended pro-lifers say we shouldn’t preach to the choir on abortion, that is, reach out to the Christian community.  But according to a new Pew Research Center report, the so-called choir is largely in the dark when it comes to abortion.  During an 8-week period, Pew researched 50,000 online sermons from 6,000 churches.  Sadly, only 4% discussed abortion even once, and when they did it was barely mentioned.  One-in-five congregations in evangelical Protestant, historically black Protestant, and Catholic churches heard a pro-life message.  It was only one-in-ten for mainline Protestant congregations.  Smaller congregations were more likely to hear abortion tackled.  Thankfully, when it’s addressed, it was almost unanimously for life.
