When I first started hearing about the recent Planned Parenthood videos, to be honest, I was a little confused by the outrage. “Why,” I thought, “are people only now getting outraged about this? Why isn’t the killing of babies enough to get people upset? What difference does it make that they are selling the baby parts?” But once I watched the videos, and saw the evil callousness with which they talked about hacking up the bodies of little babies, my indignation was reignited.

To one of the men, Jesus said, “Today you will be with me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43). Many have tried to use this as an argument against the necessity of baptism. But as ridiculous as that argument is, sometimes the counter-arguments seem to me just as ridiculous. There is a sense in which our salvation is much like the thief’s salvation and a sense in which it is gloriously different.
