The text was 1 Peter 2:17, “Honor the king.” I closed with eight ways to honor a pro-choice president. The seventh was this:
We will honor you by expecting from you straightforward answers to straightforward questions. We would not expect this from a con-man, but we do expect it from an honorable man.
- Are you willing to explain why a baby's right not to be killed is less important than a woman's right not to be pregnant?
- Or are you willing to explain why most cities have laws forbidding cruelty to animals, but you oppose laws forbidding cruelty to human fetuses? Are they not at least living animals?
Of course, Mr. Obama is accountable to the people of the United States only in a shadow of the sense in which he's accountable to the God who created the baby. But we must be ready to respectfully ask the questions of him and expect to be honored with honest answers. Read Dr. Piper's two other questions here:
