The RTCL Apostolate
Whoever has signed the RTCL petition is a member of the RTCL advocacy group. But baptized members of the RTCL group are also members of the RTCL apostolate, which is called the Eternal Gospel Commission, or EGS. As baptized Christians, we are commissioned to bring the gospel of Christ to every unbaptized person (Mark 16:15-16, 1Co. 15:3-4); and as members of the EGS, we are also commissioned to bring additional good news to every baptized person, and it's about causing a certain evil to stop eternally. That's where the EGS gets its name. But first, let's review what the gospel of Christ is.
The Gospel of Christ
The most important news item in the world is the gospel of Christ. The twelve disciples of Jesus the Nazorean came to believe and know that he is the prophesied Christ, the son of the living God (John 6:69). After he rose from the dead, he told them to go out into all the world and proclaim the gospel (the good news) to every person (Mark 16:15). Those who would believe the gospel of Christ and be baptized would be saved from their sins, and those who would not believe it would be condemned for their sins (Mark 16:16).
The gospel of Christ was summarized by the apostle Paul in his first letter to the Corinthians. It is that the Christ died for our sins according to scripture (1Co. 15:3, Isa. 53:1-12, Acts 8:27-39) and that he rose from the dead on the third day according to scripture (1Co. 15:4, Psa. 16:8-10, Acts 2:22-36). Those who believe the gospel and are baptized also receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). They will receive eternal life, especially if they abide in Christ, and he in them, for the rest of their lives (John 3:16, 15:1-11).
The Additional Good News
The additional good news, which we are commissioned to bring to every baptized person, is that we are now able to take away the efficacy of the most unholy sacrifice, thereby causing it to cease eternally (see Figure 1). By taking away the motive for forced abortion, the RTCL Act would take away the efficacy of the most unholy sacrifice, which is its power to absolve prenatal and postnatal support debts (see 'The Most Unholy Sacrifice' under the 'Topics' menu). The EGS also gets its name from John's Apocalypse.
Figure 1 - The EGS business/prayer card
The angel who has the "eternal gospel" says, "Fear God and give glory to him, for the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him" (Rev. 14:6-7). That news is true today, because recent advancements in DNA science have made it possible for God to judge whoremongers and adulterers according to scripture (Heb. 13:4). He is doing that by giving us the idea for the law which would stop letting them be absolved of their postnatal support debts and start convicting them instead. That idea is the RTCL Act.
The Evangelization of the EGS
The founder of the RTCL is a man whose pen name is Abel. He is also the founder of the EGS. When Abel saw that RTL and RTC advocates were never going to agree on what to do, he began asking God in faith for the wisdom of what we ought to do about abortion (Jam. 1:5-6, Mark 11:24). Over the course of a few years, each piece of the wisdom was given to Abel through someone who had it. Once he put all the pieces together, he had the wisdom that he had asked for.
Once Abel learned that the wisdom is also the wisdom of how to cause the most unholy sacrifice to cease, he knew that he had asked according to God's will. If we know that "we ask according to God's will," then we know that "God hears us" (1Jo. 5:14); and "if we know that he hears us, then we know that we have the thing we asked of him" (1Jo. 5:15). That's how Abel knows that he has the wisdom he asked of God.
Therefore, when Abel was given the wisdom, he was given a "talent" (Mat. 25:15). The talent is in the form of the idea for the Right to Choose Life Act. But he didn't know how to invest such a talent. How does one person sell it and another buy it? So, he asked God, in prayer, for advice on how to invest the talent; and the answer that Abel received is shown in the flow chart linked below.
EGS Flow Chart
In the flowchart, the evangelist starts investing the talent at his own local church by selling his pastor on the idea for the RTCL Act. His pastor buys into it by signing the RTCL petition. Then, the evangelist asks the pastor for permission to sell the local church on the idea; and as soon as he is granted permission he sells them on the idea. He continues selling them on the idea until at least 3/4 of them sign the RTCL petition. Then, he repeats the process at another local church. If he gets enough helpers, multiple pastors and churches can be sold on the idea simultaneously. Selling people on the idea is how we evangelize.
But nobody buys into an idea without motivation; and if they don't believe the positive motivation, then negative motivation is needed. The positive motivation (marked with a '+' on the flow chart) is that the RTCL Act would cause the most unholy sacrifice to cease. That's enough for a Christian to buy into the idea, but if they're not understanding how it would cause the most unholy sacrifice to cease, then negative motivation is needed. The negative motivation (marked with a '-' on the flow chart) is to hold a 31x48 inch graphic image of the most unholy sacrifice outside the church (see Figure 2).
Figure 2 - Most unholy sacrifice veiled and unveiled
The first week, the graphic image is veiled as a warning; and if the pastor (or church) refuses to understand, then the image becomes unveiled. By refusing to understand the idea, the pastor or church is allowing the most unholy sacrifice to continue; and that is why it would be fitting to display a graphic image of what they are allowing to continue.
