LIBERAL PLOY TO OVERSHADOW TRUMP’S MARCH FOR LIFE ATTENDANCE
*Preacher Paula White-Cain, popularly called Paula White, is getting a lot of flak for praying that satanic pregnancies conceived in satanic wombs be aborted through miscarriages. Some have said that the prayer (captured on video) is nonsensical, others have added it to their pile of evidence that she’s a false preacher. One publication claimed she’s making stuff up to work people up emotionally and get them writing fat cheques to her ministry. Someone else suggested she should be taken out of the Evangelical Advisory Board for US President, Donald Trump, and replaced with a preacher with sound theology.
Also, the circulation of this video to coincide with the annual March for Life in Washington, D. C. seems to suggest that Paula isn’t pro-life.
I think that these reactions are more emotional than rational. While I do not closely follow Paula White’s ministry, my past experience as a worshipper in a deliverance ministry for two decades plus shows me that her prayer was probably not meant to be taken literally. I think if the whole clip was shared and not just the minute plus going round, the context of what she was saying would have been seen.
I did see the following comments on another page where her prayer was condemned and I couldn’t have said it better.
“Praying for satanic pregnancies to miscarry … simply means that whatever tomorrow holds that is not of God (should) be dismantled or cancelled; in other words, spiritual abortion.”
“She was talking about evil spiritual birthing of plots and plans not human pregnancies.”
As Time magazine reported, Paula has “attempted to clarify her comments in a statement on Twitter, writing that her words had been ‘taken out of context.’
“’I was praying Eph 6:12 that we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Anything that has been conceived by demonic plans, for it to be cancelled and not prevail in your life… Let’s be clear what is really going on… this is a disingenuous attempt to use words out of context for political gain. I will just keep praying!’
What can be more satanic than the plots to unseat Trump and resume the programme of godlessness that saw great momentum under former US president, Barak Obama, that Trump’s presidency has been rolling back. Take for example, his appointment of over 180 conservative judges and 2 Supreme Court justices of similar bent so far to protect religious freedom, among other things.
In our personal lives too, we face all kinds of devilish intrigues and attacks that need to be aborted.
Christians easily play into the hands of the devil and his minions. The brethren bashing Paula haven’t stopped to ask how this snippet from her prayer became so popular that the mainstream media are covering it like it were such big news.
According to Time magazine, “During a Jan. 5 sermon, White asked Jesus Christ to cause the pregnancies to miscarry so they will ‘not be able to carry forth any plan of destruction, any plan of harm,’ according to a video released by the liberal activist group Right Wing Watch.”
Note who started this uproar: A LIBERAL ACTIVIST GROUP with the intention to smear and ridicule Christians and Conservatives. It’s part of the broader strategy of attacking Trump and everyone/everything associated with him.
Recall that Trump made history on Friday, January 24th, 2020, as the first sitting US president to attend and address the annual March for Life that promotes the sanctity of human life and crusades against abortion. This year’s event was the 47th edition and Trump reiterated his support for the cause in these words: “Unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House. … Every life brings love into this world. Every child brings joy to a family. Every person is worth protecting.”
I believe that the timing of this video’s release by this liberal activist group on January 24, the day of the March for Life event was to at once suggest that there is a crack in the stand of Trump’s team on abortion (“Oh see what his pastor, Paula White, is praying! This is against his pro-life stance. They are not even united in their views on abortion.” ???) and hopefully generate a firestorm of controversy that will deflect people from Trump’s historic attendance at the event and the significant proclamations in his speech there.
It was a manoeuvre to break the camp of Trump’s supporters and whittle down the impact of his epoch-making presence at the March for Life rally on them. The mischievous folks who did this know that Christians long to focus and unify on this, which is one of the most crucial issues in American politics and national life: the issue of abortion’s threat to life and the large scale slaughter of the unborn. Without this unity, they may lose the battle to the left which supports government funding of all kinds of abortions, late-term abortions up to the time of birth and the killing of babies that survive abortion.
Christians need to be more discerning and not reduce themselves to echoes of liberal talking points. Unfortunately in this case, many Christians responded to the bait like a dog that was tossed a bone.
This is a regular tactic of the left. Remember the article by Christianity Today’s editor-in-chief, Mark Galli, calling for Trump’s removal from office because he is immoral the day after his impeachment (Dec. 19, 2019). Subsequently, the paper was alleged to be one of those “rented evangelicals” that George Soros, the billionaire owner of Open Society Foundations uses to promote his open borders propaganda and globalist agenda, which Trump’s America First, anti-immigration policies are antithetical to.
The article was a pathetic attempt to create divisions in Trump’s evangelical base and deprive him of the support he needed in the Senate impeachment trial to follow. Thankfully, in spite of the massive media coverage the article received, there was a huge pushback from the evangelical community in America, starting with Franklin Graham’s dissociation with the magazine, which although founded by his father had gone left. Similar statements were released by many pastors and a joint statement by over 200 notable pastors disagreed with the article and explained why they supported Trump.
Let’s not be too quick to judge fellow believers even when our theology slightly differs from theirs. It does damage to our witness before the world. Remember the prayer the Lord Jesus prayed for us shortly before He concluded His earthly ministry:
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” – John 17:21 (KJV)
We should keep our preachers and brethren accountable but we should do so with wisdom and grace. Discretion demands that rather than jumping on the bandwagon of trending issues, we investigate matters before commenting, especially when they have to do with members of the family of God.
As the Bible says, all things work together for good to those who love God. By sharing this story, the mainstream media have joined in praying and promoting Paula’s prayer.
Instead of knocking Paula, let’s join her to pray that all evil plans against our lives, our loved ones, our nations, etc. be aborted. And let us continue to uphold President Trump in prayer, that the Lord will grant him the wisdom, courage and protection he needs to keep making America great and protecting religious freedom in the US and around the world in spite of the onslaught from the devil’s camp. Let it be so in Jesus’ name. And let all the saints say, “Amen.”
