These are unique times in which we are living as a country. Ebola looms from Africa, war is extant in the Middle East, and financial crises seem to hover around the world every time you click on a story, pick up a paper, or turn on the TV. The most dangerous issue pertaining to the life and death of humanity is abortion, and it is widely ignored by the media. Sadly, 85 million Americans have been aborted since 1973. To put this in perspective, 11 million people were killed in the Holocaust.
While there may be many political issues about which you have opinions, there is one thing you need to hear from my heart: this issue about which I’m writing you is not political, it is biblical. For followers of Jesus Christ, we know life comes from God.
My friend, Dr. Gary Jared, recently pointed out to me that even our founding Fathers agreed in the Declaration of Independence that “…all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…” the right to life! The people of Tennessee will be able to go and vote for some common sense laws that will be a positive move in the direction of saving the lives of human beings still in their mothers’ wombs.
The vote on Amendment 1 on Tuesday, November 4th, is monumental. Christians, we must stand up and vote for life. Again, this is not a political issue; it is a biblical one. I encourage you to VOTE YES ON AMENDMENT 1 on election day. Vote your biblical values.
