“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15).
Since my conversion to Christ, I have witnessed a plethora of testimonies on how souls came to the saving grace and knowledge of Jesus. Not once did I hear, “My life is great. Things are going my way. Everything I touch prospers, so I figure it’s time to surrender my life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.” The majority of testimonies went something like this, “My life is in tatters. My mind is tormented. I’m financially bankrupt. My body is sick and I’m dying.”
Brokenness and contrition are the common expressions for those who taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalms 34:8). God’s Word promises, “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit” (Psalms 34:18). King David exclaimed, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart- These, O God, You will not despise” (Psalms 51:17). Isaiah concurs, “But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word” (Isaiah 66:2).
When things are going good, most refuse to recognize their need for God. This may explain why Jesus warned that it is hard for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God (Matthew 19:23). When all needs, desires, wants and passions are fulfilled and while the rich surround themselves with “yes men,” who will disturb the “gravy train”? Not many will dare to shatter the illusion with calls of humility, repentance, and acknowledgment of truth. Self-sufficiency may play well in the world’s system, but in eternal matters, it is a losing proposition. When life falls apart and folks are at their wits end, however, many anxious souls mercifully awaken to their need for Christ’s redemption, healing, and deliverance.
Centuries before our Lord warned of wolves in sheep’s clothing, a man by the name of Aesop wrote fables. One of his most famous concerned a wolf. He wrote:
A wolf found great difficulty in getting at the sheep owing to the vigilance of the shepherd and his dogs. But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and thrown aside, so it put it on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep. The lamb that belonged to the sheep, whose skin the wolf was wearing, began to follow the wolf in the sheep’s clothing; so, leading the lamb a little apart, he soon made a meal of her, and for some time he succeeded in deceiving the sheep, and enjoying hearty meals.
Both Aesop and Jesus warned that appearances can certainly prove deceptive. Throughout human history, men have masked deadly agendas in virtue. The Apostle Paul exposed this deception in the New Testament. He stated, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.”
As you can see, Satan does not appear as evil. In addition, he is always willing to grant men good reasons to commit evil. He comes as an angel of light and his ministers masquerade as ministers of righteousness. G K Chesterton grants incredible insight into this ruse, “The modern world is full of Christian virtues gone mad.” Thus, in the name of love, tolerance, and compassion the enemy of our souls kills, steals, and destroys.
There is one organization in our day that exemplifies this classic wolf in sheep’s clothing scenario and that organization is Planned Parenthood. Under the guise of providing affordable women’s health care- they promote promiscuity and savage babies made in the image of God.
Apparently, Planned Parenthood has fallen upon hard times. Its death camps are closing down at rapid pace. This is despite the fact that Obama usurped our tax dollars to prop them up! What is the abortion giant to do? It appears it too is turning to God. Tragically, it is not in repentance and the acknowledgment of the truth, whereby souls are saved. No, Planned Parenthood is using God to assuage women’s guilt as it assists them in murdering babies.
The “religious leaders” within Planned Parenthood utilize faith in God and His love to condone violating His holy commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.” Here is their controversial letter to unsuspecting women:
The decision to have an abortion is personal. Though your reasons may be complicated and private, you’re not alone. As religious leaders from a number of religious traditions, we’re here to support you in your decision.
Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion. The truth is that abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures-Jewish or Christian-and there are clergy and people of faith from all denominations who support women making this complex decision.
The beliefs of each person are deserving of respect, and each person deserves care and compassion. No one should be allowed to force their faith teachings on anyone else.
We believe this decision is yours, made with your doctor and anyone else you choose to bring into the conversation, such as a spouse, partner, parent, or clergy person.
God loves you and is with you no matter what you decide. You can find strength, understanding, and comfort in that love.
This is blasphemy of the highest order. To place God in violation of His own commandment is delusional. For decades, Planned Parenthood has had no problem murdering the innocent for blood money and exploiting the fears of women. Now Planned Parenthood adds to its infamy. It is placing God’s approval upon that which He condemns. It is this spiritual treachery that has earned Planned Parenthood the ignoble title, “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
To what shall I liken Planned Parenthood?
On a few occasions, our Lord made powerful comparisons in order to reveal His Kingdom. He taught, “To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what parable shall we picture it?” (Mark 4:30). In Matthew 22, He likened the Kingdom of heaven unto a certain king who made a marriage feast for his son. In Matthew 13, He likened the Kingdom to a “pearl of great price.” Included in Matthew 13 is the comparison of His Kingdom to “hidden treasure.” In other passages of Scripture, the Lord likens His Kingdom to a net, a householder and laborers in a field. All these, plus others, reveal to seekers of God the nature of the Kingdom of God. It reveals to repentant souls what they inherit through being spiritually reborn by the regenerating power of the Holy Ghost (Titus 3:5).
With that in mind, to what shall I liken Planned Parenthood? This organization is like rat poison. Most of the of what is contained in the product is good for the rat, it is just the small amount of poison that kills him. Planned Parenthood is like a drug rehab center that supports the local crack house. Through its sex education programs, future clients are guaranteed at its abortion mills.
Planned Parenthood is like the Walmart of the abortion industry. This makes them a beast of a different stripe. You could hurt their abortion practice, but not close their doors. They must be cut off from the government dole. It is Planned Parenthood’s access to taxpayer dollars that allows this evil organization spread evil like a spiritual and moral cancer.
Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading advocate and provider of abortion. Either directly or indirectly, through their pagan sexual philosophy and abortion practice, one third of entire generation 41 years old and younger have been murdered in their mother’s womb. Since 1973, close to 60 million preborn babies made in the image of God have been destroyed and their innocent blood shed by the sin and crime of abortion. This deadly legacy serves as an everlasting memorial to commemorate Planned Parenthood’s participation in the culture of death.
The roots of Planned Parenthood are in eugenics
Charles Darwin spread the heresy of evolution in his day. Francis Galton, his cousin, added the racial component to it, which he labeled Eugenics. It was this worldview that fueled Margaret Sangar’s vision and mission exemplified in Planned Parenthood. “More from the fit and less from the unfit” was one of her mottoes. Of course, she was the goddess who determined who was fit to live or not. She viewed some races as human weeds that should never be allowed to spawn.
In a letter to Clarence Gamble in 1939, Sanger wrote:
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through religions appeal. We don’t want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.
This is the reason why the majority of Planned Parenthood abortion mills are located in minority areas. This is not a coincidence, but by design. Under the guise of helping poor, minority women, this wolf in sheep’s clothing is exterminating their races.
Planned Parenthood promotes immorality
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 states, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
Planned Parenthood has never met a sexual expression, no matter how deviant, it did not worship. In its world, the wages of sin is not death, it is just an excuse to visit its clinics. Planned Parenthood has services that will atone for any sin of fornication, adultery, molestation, or pedophilia people commit.
As with any other business, Planned Parenthood wants to prosper. The best way to ensure future clients is to create an appetite for its products. Planned Parenthood’s sex education programs are merely recruiting opportunities. Its programs guarantee future clients at its death camps. To encourage young people to be promiscuous and immoral, makes its services golden. But all that glitters is not gold.
Planned Parenthood is a criminal organization
Besides its crimes of committing murder, Planned Parenthood has committed other crimes as well. Planned Parenthood has been caught defrauding our government, overcharging for its services, bilking tax payers, misappropriation of funds and a host of other offenses. Its greatest crime besides the slaying of the innocent for blood money, however, is its enabling of sexual assault against minor girls.
There is overwhelming evidence that Planned Parenthood has for years provided safe cover for sexual predators and pedophiles. Documentation emerged that reveals Planned Parenthood was caught red-handed providing a safe haven for grown men who prey upon and sexually abuse young girls (www.ldi.org and www.childpredators.com).
Life Dynamics, a Texas based research group, conducted a covert survey. A young woman posed as a 13 year old child who was seeking an abortion to conceal her illicit and illegal sexual activity with an older man. She called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across America. The results of this survey are absolutely appalling. The vast majority of these facilities agreed to conceal the crime even among those who acknowledged it was statutory rape. Some Planned Parenthood employees coached the caller on how to avoid detection. Some revealed how she could circumvent parental notification law and what to say or not to say when she came to the clinic. Most encouraged her to lie, conceal her age and the age of her predator, or just give false names.
All these phone calls were recorded and demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that Planned Parenthood is either complicit or complacent when it comes to the rape and sexual abuse of our children. These molesters merely bring their prey to Planned Parenthood and use them to get rid of the evidence (by murdering children). Planned Parenthood returns these girls back to their abusers (without reporting them) so the cycle of sexual assaults continue unabated.
These are just some of the rotten fruit communities suffer once this wolf in sheep’s clothing set up its bloody shops. In the midst of this debacle, the words of our Lord are crucial. Jesus instructed, “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:16).
Psalms 82:3,4 exhorts, “Defend the poor and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; Free them from the hand of the wicked.” In Aesop’s fable, the sheep were protected when the shepherds were vigilant and the dogs stood guard. When they were deceived by the wolf, however, little lambs suffered harm. Perhaps, it is high time for the church’s shepherds to rise up, take the rod of God, expose this wolf in sheep’s clothing, and deliver the little lambs from being devoured in Jesus’ name!
Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, Assistant Director of Operation Save America, is helping to spearhead the New Orleans outreach from July 19-26, 2014. According to Thomas, “The great need of the hour is for multitudes with broken and contrite hearts to seek God to deliver our nation from evil. We love our nation and pray that we will return to the God of the Bible, who alone can hear from heaven, forgive our sins, and heal our broken, wounded land. Offering life and hope at abortion clinics is merely our prayers of repentance in action. Together, the church can make a difference.”
