What is abolitionism?

Abolitionism is the Biblical Doctrine of repentance applied to national sin. Abolitionism seeks to answer the question of how does the Bride of Christ address and combat great evil in society. Abolitionism is a distinctively Christian doctrine. Abolitionists affirm that abortion is sin and the answer to sin is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Every age has its evils, and every age has its abolitionists. In this age, abortion is that evil. However, abolitionism should not be solely applied to abortion. Anywhere there is systemic societal injustice, abolitionism is relevant and should be applied.

The five tenets and two modes best define abolitionism.

 The Five Tenets of Abolitionism

Biblical and Theological

Abolitionism is based on the Word of God. Specifically, two theological propositions; humans are created in the image of God and that God Himself became a man to rescue mankind from death, destruction, and eternal separation.

 The Two Modes

Agitation

Agitation is simply the disturbance of passivity and apathy. How this disturbance is caused, however, is much more important than whether or not a disturbance has been caused.

Assistance

Assistance is a vital part of abolition, for without assistance our ideology is just ideas and words. It is a multi-faceted part of abolitionism because it meets a need. Needs are varied, and so are the needy.
