imageMy plea to Mr. Redick as a fellow sinner and brother in the Lord:

If the legal documents are accurate and since the event is now public, admit you participated in the death of this unborn child with a degree of coercion given the circumstances. Forget the public denials – embrace the painful but liberating grace of humility!

The mother experienced symptoms of post abortion trauma after the procedure. Publicly apologize to Lopez, pray she find healing of her loss and embrace the forgiveness and mercy of the Lord.

I encourage you to attend a healing program because whether you know it or not, your participation in this abortion has also hurt you deeply, emotionally and spiritually as a man. Don’t be afraid and have hope. You can recover from this injury to your manhood and fatherhood and develop a spiritual relationship with this child lost to abortion. Even if you are not the father, you can spiritually adopt this child and embrace the one that you abandoned to death.

As Jesus said, “Behold, I make all things New!” (Revelation 21:1)

With healing you can become the best man and father you can be – with God’s help. Use this as an opportunity to reject the abortion culture of death, and call other men to healing.

The media’s agenda is often to sensationalize and humiliate celebrities with the emphasis on scandal and gossip. Take the high road Mr. Redick, and bring healing and resurrection out of this very painful situation.

Your brother in Christ,
