Pastor Carl Lentz is making it clear that he believes abortion is a sin after receiving backlash for failing to convey his stance on “The View” last week.

Lentz, the 38-year-old Own the Moment author and Hillsong NYC pastor, took to Twitter to thoroughly explain his position on abortion Tuesday. In the statement he admitted to not being direct in his response about calling abortion sinful when questioned about it on ABC’s daytime talk show “The View” on Oct. 30.

“Recently in an interview, I was asked directly if abortion was sin. I did not answer the question directly for a number of reasons and that has caused some confusion about our stance as a church on this matter,” Lentz wrote. “I do believe abortion is sinful. Our prayer is that we can continue to help and love those that deal with the pain of regret from personal choices, rather than cast further shame and guilt on those already carrying so much and create a church that can teach people how to form convictions based on God’s Word, that will be the driving force in all their decisions.
