I had prayed hard that Tiller’s eyes would be opened and he would turn from the sin of abortion. I am saddened that this man’s life was ended before he repented.
Of what sin should he have repented of?
Apparently he was fully accepted in the Lutheran Church as a member in good standing and as an Usher. He may have even baptized some of the babies he "prematurely delivered."
Obviously if he had some kind of ongoing sin in his life that required repentance, the Lutheran Church would not have elevated him to such a high position within their church.
Obviously he was as good a Christian as anyone else in his congregation. Maybe better.
