True Fellowship: Koinonia, Part 2
How can people who experienced an abortion be saved? The answer is very symple, but is profound. Yes, they can be saved and can go to havean. (Romans 10:9)
Fathers who experienced an abortion are experiencing emotional pain as much as mothers. It is blessing to have a safe environment to share the burden to each other without condemnation or gossip. One way of being mature in Christ is being honest and free in Christ from the shame and the bondage of guilt.
Can post-abortive family experience illness whehter emotinaly or spiritualy even if even if they are saved? The answer is "yes". Like anyother illness, post abortive can experience some emtional, spritual illness even they are saved. How can we experience the healing? Not for every post abirtive, but one way is to share our pain and grief with someone you can trust, close friends or church leaders who can understand the issue without any condemnation.
"Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. (James 5:14-16)
God's grace is strong enough to bear one another's burden!
