As people look back on these days and the current events attached to them, the debate over the potential overturning of Roe -v- Wade will certainly be a big part of the memory landscape. In my life, I have not seen such an state of national confusion and chaos nor such a divide among our people. It truly is a sad day when “some” people vehemently rally around political ideology without even engaging the gray-matter that God gave them. I grow tired of seeing young people parroting slogans and cursing with hate because they wish to get on camera or tell their future children (now that is ironic) how they protested against this or that.
As I have started many conversations lately, my comments and opinions are based on a Christian worldview. If you are reading this message and have a different view, that is your right. However, your right is no more weighty or valuable than my right. Actually, if the Christian worldview IS right… well, you find yourself in opposition to God Almighty, the author of Christian worldview. So, consider whose camp you identify with… God or the devil. Do you really want to take the devil’s hand while lifting a middle-finger to God? Something to think about, eh?
This week, I have had two opportunities to join with Christian brothers to speak up on local / regional television. We gave opinions about Roe -v- Wade and prayed for the Supreme Court of the US, the overturning of the law in question, and the country in general. During the second TV session, we met at the Old Country Store with a young lady from WBBJ-tv. I must say that she was very polite and did not throw any curveballs at us. I opened the session with prayer then Pastor Garry Martin addressed the topic from a spiritual perspective. Brent Lambert, founder and executive director of Birth Choice, then spoke to the realities of how abortion effects the mom, dad, and baby. Brent deals with these issues every day and has a powerful way of expressing his thoughts clearly and without condemnation. Pastor Cartwright followed up with a personal testimony and then we all took time to discuss the abortion issue from different angles and perspectives.
As I wrap this post up, I’d like to point out a few items, then share a few photos. So…
Here is a public link to the local WBBJ article and video that features our prayer circle discussion and other voices from the community. I am only sharing this as a reference:
Dear Christian, if you somehow struggle with all of this, remember that we are to be unique people in our devotion to God who is the author of life. Do not allow the prevailing culture cause you to waiver. Here are a few scripture references to help reign in the doubt:
Ok, now for the photos:
