Policy Won’t Change a Pro-Abortion Culture with Naomi Smith

Share This Post

At a Glance

In the fight to end abortion, changing policies is necessary, but it falls woefully short of solving the problem. Today, we have a culture that worships sex, and unless this changes, abortion will be an inevitable consequence of this lifestyle. To end abortion, we need to shift our target upstream to the root lies behind this worship, specifically to the lies surrounding what it means to be human and God’s design for the sexes and family. For the discussion, our friend Naomi Smith joins us in unpacking each of these lies. Ideas have consequences, and right now, our culture needs better ideas that will not lead to abortion.

Special Guest: Naomi Smith

Homemaker. Cultureshifter. Jesus Chaser.

From dance major to radical Jesus follower and single campus minister, then to wife and mom, Naomi Bloom Smith journeys down the road with God distilling life lessons along the way. She does not pretend to have a corner on the market of how to do motherhood “right”. She only knows that her sojourn as a mom has brought out colors of her own heart that she never knew were there. She also discovered that God’s design for home is brilliance shrouded in normalcy. She realizes her radical love for Jesus only deepens as she slows down enough to truly stop for her son in his first few years.

The Grand Design: Rediscovering Male and Female as the Image of God

By Darrow Miller

“Darrow offers a healing biblical vision where men and women reflect the relationship within the Trinity: unity without uniformity and diversity without superiority.” – Nancy Pearcey, Professor and scholar in residence at Houston Christian University, author of Love Thy Body and The Toxic War on Masculinity

“Rich, timely, wide ranging, provocative, and wise, Miller’s The Grand Design is a book to be read slowly, pondered, and discussed.” – Os Guinness, Author of The Magna Carta of Humanity

Throughout the ages, cultures have pivoted between two understandings of the sexes. 

Men and women are equal,
and therefore they are the same – interchangeable.

or

Men and women are different,
and the differences are exploited to falsely claim that some people are superior to others. 

 

But what if there is a third option? What if a true biblical understanding, rooted in the Trinity, provides a foundation and vision for the sexes, where unity and equality is possible without uniformity, and difference and diversity between men and women is celebrated without superiority? In an age where views about men and women have divided the church and the culture, The Grand Design offers an opportunity for everyone to discover with fresh insight all that it means to be made in the image of God, male and female.
