New Film: “Babies Are Murdered Here” calls on the church to repent

BabiesTaking the internet by storm is a new documentary-length film, Babies Are Murdered Here.  Watching the trailer and then the free film, I have to say two things: First, it is a much watch for all Christians. Second, where has the visible church been?

The first point is easy. Watch this move:

But let’s focus on the second question. Why have most churches turned a blind eye to the horrific holocaust that has killed more human beings (56 Million now) than in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II, The Korean War, Viet Nam, and the Gulf Wars, COMBINED?

That’s one of the questions we’ll ask the producer of the film, Marcus Pittman, of Crown Rights Media. Marcus joins us on our program Thursday, January 30th at 9 a.m. Central.

When the January 22, 2014 March For Life event happened in Washington, D.C., hundreds of thousands of people converged to stand up and speak out about a practice that should break our hearts and make our blood run cold.  For whatever reason, Evangelicals have absconded their responsibility largely because they see it as a Catholic social justice cause rather than a  bloody assault on helpless innocents; a modern-day sacrifice to pagan gods, and a grievous turning away from the love of Christ.

But for the first time, more young people than ever before are making their voices heard, and with the help of movies like Babies Are Murdered Here, perhaps the visible Church will come around as well.

    That was very clear.

    Why have we turned a blind eye? For the same reason we have stopped confronting sin in our own lives and in the lives of others. For the same reason we turn to teachers who are but men so that we ourselves are confronted directly by the WORD of the LIVING GOD. Instead we would have our ears are tickled, our itches scratched as we are comforted by their words and promises for peace and being healed ever so slightly.

    Our ignorant plea : Why should I care if it isn’t hurting me or its none of my business.

    In this way we prove our indifference to the One who paid the ransom for our sins and not only ours but the sins of the whole world until the last mite was paid. Every sin, all of them past, present and future, He who knew no sin would become sin for us (he would bear these our sins in His own flesh) and drink in every last bit of GOD’s wrath for all these atrocities until that cup was emptied, even the dregs. God Himself, the Lamb of God who came to take away the sins of the world stepped out of heaven and became a man for that very purpose, to Satisfy God’s wrath and His divine justice for sin. How can we be so indifferent to what He hates so much that He did not spare His only begotten Son but killed Him for bearing that which was not His to bear.

    We were the ones who earned those wages, we were the ones who incurred that debt but He paid it in full in His body on that tree. He became the accursed of God for us.

    How can we who have received new life continue in complacency any longer. Is there no gratitude in our bowels for what he has done? And if not maybe we are not His for He promises to those that are HIS that they will have a new heart and a new Spirit and that Spirit is God. The very same who drove Christ to the cross to make an end of sin and unrighteousness.

    Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences. For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart. For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause. For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:11-21

    The way to stop sin is to preach Christ. The murder of the unborn is so very tragic, and will not cease as long as sexual immorality runs rampant. I am not sure holding up signs stating ‘babies are murdered here’ is the answer- it’s too close to the Westboro Baptist – type of ministering.

    This video featured Tony Miano; I watched some videos of him preaching outside abortion clinics. In one particular video, he purposely offended a young father, telling this man he was a ‘bad father’. Miano worked this man into such a state of rage…I was appalled. He NEVER gave this man the Gospel. He only yelled at the man as the man dropped his wife off for work. The young father was so worked up by Miano’s accusations, he got out of his car and was ready to come to blows with Miano. Thankfully, that never happened. Ever since viewing that video, I do not shy away from proclaiming what I saw.
    There were several videos that were similar to this one, however, after many complaints, Tony Miano removed them from youtube. This type of ministry will NOT work, nor will it glorify Christ.
    I like the older lady’s way of speaking to those at the abortion clinic; she was caring, loving, and gave the truth without being too abrasive. These women need to hear of sin, and they need to hear of Christ atoning work. Yelling at them to stop murdering their children just doesn’t seem to be the right way to go about this. I find no example of the Lord Jesus yelling at sinners; ‘be wise as serpents and innocent as doves’.

    Hi Rose,

    I fear many do NOT understand Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” The power to change an unregenerate heart does NOT lie in protest-type behavior, it lies in the Gospel of Christ as God the Spirit moves in the heart. It seems many think they MUST shame these sinners, as if that will stop them from murdering their child. This is NOT the approach to take at all. R.C. Sproul Jr. has some very troubling beliefs that lean towards dominsionism. A google search will provide ample proof of that.
    I am not trying to ‘slam’ anybody, we simply cannot use man-made methods and expect God to honor that.Yes, address sin, but NOT with signs and pictures of aborted babies!!; and follow that up with the good news of the Savior. If these men in the video think they are successful because one woman may not murder her child, they’ve lost sight of what their calling is. So- what if a woman does not murder her baby, which is a wonderful thing; BUT, at some point that woman dies an unregenerate sinner? Isn’t the goal to preach Christ and pray God will save these women; then maybe they will keep their child and raise them up in the Lord – shouldn’t that be the goal? Yes, the unborn baby’s life is important, but so is the mom’s eternal fate.

    Lyn when many testify to the same thing it is difficult to lay aside what they are proclaiming. 1 Corinthians 14:24-25 If we have the wrong heart in any evangelism we do, you can know for a fact it is not our heart that wins the day. It is the Holy Spirit working through even a corruptible presentation of a clear message telling the truth for what it is.

    Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious. Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: 2 Corinthians 3:5-12

    Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:1-7

    For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: (They)who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. (ie that they might be saved, for I am not ashamed of the Gospel it is the power of God unto salvation first for the Jew and then to the Greek for in it is a righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith as it is written the just shall live by faith. Romans 1:16-17) 2 Peter 4:3-6

    There is so much in our behavior that is self serving lets pray that our message isn’t. Better yet lets pray our behavior and our message are one, so that there would be no lie, guile, deceit.

    Mr. Davis,
    Thank you for your response. I do want to point out some facts about Marcus Pittman and Crown Rights Media, the ones who brought you this video. This if from their statement of belief – “The Mission of CrownRights.org is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and edify the believer by creating high quality productions centered on building, restoring and establishing a Christ centered world view in all areas of life.” – crownrights DOT org/about/mission-and-vision/

    I bring this to light because this is a view known as ‘reconstructionism’.
    “Reconstructionism is a theology that arose out of conservative Presbyterianism (Reformed and Orthodox), which proposes that contemporary application of the laws of Old Testament Israel, or “Biblical Law,” is the basis for reconstructing society toward the Kingdom of God on earth.
    Reconstructionism argues that the Bible is to be the governing text for all areas of life–such as government, education, law, and the arts, not merely “social” or “moral” issues like pornography, homosexuality, and abortion. Reconstructionists have formulated a “Biblical world view” and “Biblical principles” by which to examine contemporary matters. Reconstructionist theologian David Chilton succinctly describes this view: “The Christian goal for the world is the universal development of Biblical theocratic republics, in which every area of life is redeemed and placed under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the rule of God’s law.”

    More broadly, Reconstructionists believe that there are three main areas of governance: family government, church government, and civil government. Under God’s covenant, the nuclear family is the basic unit. The husband is the head of the family, and wife and children are “in submission” to him. In turn, the husband “submits” to Jesus and to God’s laws as detailed in the Old Testament. The church has its own ecclesiastical structure and governance. Civil government exists to implement God’s laws. All three institutions are under Biblical Law, the implementation of which is called “theonomy.” Epitomizing the Reconstructionist idea of Biblical “warfare” is the centrality of capital punishment under Biblical Law. Doctrinal leaders (notably Rushdoony, North, and Bahnsen) call for the death penalty for a wide range of crimes in addition to such contemporary capital crimes as rape, kidnapping, and murder. Death is also the punishment for apostasy (abandonment of the faith), heresy, blasphemy, witchcraft, astrology, adultery, “sodomy or homosexuality,” incest, striking a parent, incorrigible juvenile delinquency, and, in the case of women, “unchastity before marriage.” – from

    I encourage all to carefully examine this dangerous movement, which includes names like R.C. Sproul Jr. among its adherents. This move is both dangerous and unbiblical. With that said, these folks have no real desire to see the women who visit the abortion clinic saved, they only desire to implement their ‘control’ over women and society.
    I encourage all to read this as well – gotquestions DOT org/dominion-theology.html
