Really?! When I read this account of a prominent evangelical leader supporting abortion extremist Hillary Clinton for President of the United States, I was stunned. "We're praying for sister Hillary"? Who is "we're"? The World Evangelical Alliance or just Deborah Fikes? If they are praying for sister-Hillary's salvation then I will joint in their prayers. If, however, they (whoever they is?) are praying that sister-Hillary to win the election, ... they won't have my prayers. American Christians must not support a candidate they know will open the bloodied flood gates wider for abortion. They may not support Donald Trump but they must not support Hillary Clinton -- if the sanctity of human life still has meaning to them.
Deborah Fikes is showing accommodation with the age and culture of death. Christians must not follow her example. If they will not stand resolutely for the value of all human life, pray tell, what will they stand for? Anything less is accommodation.
"Here is the great evangelical disaster -- the failure of the evangelical world to stand for truth as truth. There is only one word for this -- namely accommodation: the evangelical church has accommodated the spirit of the age. ... this accommodation has been costly, first in destroying the power of the Scriptures to confront the spirit of the age; second, in allowing the further slide of our culture. ... It is my firm belief that when we stand before Jesus Christ, we will find that it has been the weakness and accommodation of the evangelical group on the issues of the day that has been largely responsible for the loss of the Christian ethos which has taken place in the area of culture in our own country over the last forty to sixty years." (pp. 37-38)
The great man wrote those words 32 years ago. He would be horrified to see where North America has gone. No where has this accommodation with the spirit of the age been more profound than in biblical Christianity and Life issues.
