The Abortion Matrix – Flip Benham on Evangelism at the Gates of Hell
Flip Benham spoke to us recently about how Operation Save America leads more people to Christ by accident than some churches do on purpose when they practice their “theologically correct” strategies. Why? Because they show up at the gates of hell.
I’ve spoken to a lot of pastors over the past 20 years about confronting the gates of hell – the abortion clinics in our city. Most tell me how much they respect me for doing what I do. But most lack the heart to join and support the preachers, evangelists and sidewalk counselors who confront child killing. They sometimes have a theological excuse for opposing abortion on the grounds where the killing takes place. Sometimes they say we ought to focus on crisis pregnancy centers or take a less confrontational approach.
The timid shepherd doesn’t have a theological problem. He has a moral problem due to the fear of man. He is worried about how he will be perceived by the “hirelings” in church leadership who might be offended. So he makes theological excuses for inaction. We don’t oppose crisis pregnancy centers, but not every woman will go to a CPC. Most women in crisis pregnancies will go straight to the killing center in their city. This is the last chance – the literal gates of hell – where some are snatched from the fire each week.
Whenever we confront the gates of hell, we will win the battle. When the Church, led by its shepherds, finally confronts the gates of hell, we will win the war.
Is there a connection between witchcraft, neo-paganism and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Awesome. Flip may not remember me from the NYC Rescue days or the days of The Cities of Refuge in Philly. Blessings on your labors, my brother. Keep tough, tender, and teachable for Jesus’ sake and the kingdom’s advance.
