Responding to Election Results, Evangelist Alveda King asks: “What’s Next?”

161109 blog image - Trump praying

Staten Island, New York – “O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.” Psalm 47:1

Amidst shouts of “we did it” in the victory of Mr. Donald Trump and others elected last night; and for some tears of frustration that some not so favorite candidates won and their favorites lost in the presidential, senate, house and gubernatorial bids, there is a voice calling from Heaven’s courts: “Come together in Agape Love for as the “One Blood” of Acts 17:26.”

“Shout to the LORD, all the earth; break out in praise and sing for joy! Let the hills sing out their songs of joy before the LORD, for he is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with justice and the nations with fairness.” Psalm 97

Let’s remember that God has the final say in who ascends to seats of power and who does not. God has decided the outcome. “We the People” have voted in 2016, advancing a shift for the sanctity of life, family and community. The election is over. Now what?

“Everyone must submit to governing authorities; for all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished.” Romans 13:1-2

For “in spirit and in truth” Christians what happens moving ahead is our focus. Yesterday is now history.

At the turn of the century, America faced a crossroads. What would the new millennium bring to us? In many ways, for the first decade and subsequent years, until yesterday, America was embroiled in civil unrest. Infractions on moral values were strained past a point of endurance. Economic upheaval threatened to topple our economy. Racial tensions mounted. War loomed over our nation, threatening our very existence. That too is now history. Right now today, it is time to appeal to God for the healing of our nation. Men and women in leadership and all of the people in this nation and around the world do not have the power to accomplish this feat alone. Yet: “With God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

The spiritual community must now keep praying, listening to and following, and obeying God. No matter what humans say, God has allowed Mr. Trump to rise thus far. What happens next is up to God.

“Don’t be misled [deceived] –you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest [reap] what you [sow] plant.” Galatians 6:7

Finally, we must always remember that no human can save America or the world. Only the God of John 3:16 can do that! More will be revealed in the days ahead. During this shift of power, please pray for a peaceful transition among the governing branches of America and the world. Please pray that the people of faith in the God of Heaven and Earth become more committed in prayer and obedience to God.

Viewing the Election from a Prophetic Vantage Point

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Three Headed Monster Revised3

While Christian leaders are still taking sides in the current elections there is yet a non-partisan place in the spirit where we can speak justice and mercy to all, including to all candidates.

Open letters are useful from various vantage points. I’ve signed a few myself.

We need help.

Speaking prophetically:

Consider Vashti and Esther:
Two women, living in a system of female oppression in a harem. When married to the king, they responded to a crisis from two vantage points. We learn from Vashti that indignation without prayer ends in short-circuited justice. Vashti responded with emotions. Esther prayed and sought divine solutions, and won justice for herself and her people.

Consider Sarah and Hagar:
A wife and concubine in competition started the longest family feud in history. While both of their sons by Abraham received God’s blessing, the battle over being the bloodline for the earthly entry of the Messiah has caused a rift that needs the healing power of Agape.

A Civil Rights Lens:

Consider Michelle and Hillary:

Michelle-Hillary-Hugging

As the daughter of former slaves and a daughter of former slave owners, they embrace the pro- abortion agenda. It’s no coincidence that they are married to two of America’s most powerful icons.

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.” MLK (sons and daughters/humanhood – One Blood/Acts 17:26)

Yet how can the dream survive if we murder the children? As we connect the dots, racism, reproductive genocide, poverty and sexual perversion are common enemies that must be defeated.

In this election cycle we are coming full circle, facing a deep wound in the wombs of the women of America. The Barren and Post-Abortive Woman, Vashti and Hagar must be healed; and Queen Esther and Sarah must fast and pray as America returns to God.

“Sing, O barren one, who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the desolate one will be more than the children of her who is married,” says the Lord. – Isaiah 54

“Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called… Isaiah 54

The struggle now is to rise above the emotional fray and pray according to this excerpt from Charisma Magazine:

[We as] “Christians are not given the option of letting their [our] disagreement with their [our] political leaders prevent [us] them from praying for those leaders. The apostle Peter wrote that believers are to “submit yourselves to every human authority for the Lord’s sake, whether it be to the king, as supreme, or to governors, as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and to praise those who do right. … Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king” (1 Pet. 2:13-14, 17).

Similarly, Paul wrote to Timothy, “Therefore I exhort first of all that you make supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings for everyone, for kings and for all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and honesty, for this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior” (1 Tim. 2:1-3).

“For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Easter 4:14

Where are the prophetic voices that rise above politics? The generations now and ahead are hanging in the balance:

“All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. If anyone stirs up strife, it is not from me; whoever stirs up strife with you shall fall because of you.” Isaiah 54

The struggle continues. With repentance; forgiveness one to another and for ourselves; and faith, Agape Love, we shall overcome. Pray for America.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: October 17, 2016

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today released a “timeline” showing some of the changes in the Democratic Party Platform between 1952 and 2016. It quotes from the party platforms for most of the intervening versions of it (issued every four years), and focuses on three issues of key concern to many citizens: abortion, sexual morality, and gay marriage.

This document shows that the worldview and policy preferences of the Democratic party today are not what they were in the past, and the change brings that worldview farther away from that of the Christian and Biblical faith on basic matters of morality.

“Moral corruption is not only found in individuals; it is also found in laws, public policies, party platforms, and court decisions,” explained Fr. Pavone. “As the U.S. Bishops have indicated, we should not vote merely according to party loyalty, but according to principle. To do that, we have to know how the party platforms have changed. Anyone, furthermore, who builds walls against the smallest children, keeping them from the right to be born, is not acting as a Christian.”

America, Get Out of the Toilet!

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

160510 blog image3

In the midst of perhaps the most baffling presidential election America has faced in modern history, morality is caught in the crosshairs. As a man and a woman, the outlier and the insider face off in the battle of the polls, much is at stake. Meanwhile, America seems to be stuck in the toilet.

The current public bathroom debacle is designed to stir emotions and steer the unsuspecting masses away from reason into emotional la-la land. There is so much emotional spin around issues regarding the sanctity of human life and human sexuality that America remains in constant emotional flux while the tirades replace prayer, wisdom and healthy reasoning.

While I commend the now millions of Americans who are joining the protests and signing petitions against the government enforced efforts to use misplaced compassion to help transgender people, more is needed.

In other words, by turning a blind eye to the dearth of perversion within our communities — the sex traffickers, child molesters, adulterers and fornicators, racists, and so many other sin sick souls — and suggesting that allowing everyone to use the same public bathrooms will solve America’s problems, the current government administration, no matter how well intended or ill advised they are, is headed for disaster.

America’s moral dilemma won’t be solved in the public bathrooms of America.

In order to reconcile righteousness and justice in America, more godly intercession is needed. Added to our prayers must be legal strategies to serve and liberate rather than condemn the people.

In the 1950s and 1960s, prayer rallies and peaceful nonviolent protests were coupled with brilliant legal strategies to bring about transformational governance to allow Blacks the right to equal public access to bathrooms, public transportation, fair housing and employment.

That was then. Immutable skin color was the civil rights battle of the 20th century. Clear, plain and simple: One blood, one human race. (Acts 17:26).

This is now. Today the lines are blurred. Sexual preference isn’t the same as immutable skin color. The “how we are born” factor comes into play now. People aren’t so well versed in the “created in the image of God,” yet because of the fallen human nature “we are all born into sin.” Thus the “be born again” factor should be introduced.

Today, from the religious freedom perspective, we also need more legal brilliance. While from the opposite perspective governmental coercion from a bully pulpit decries and tramples the religious freedoms upon which our nation was founded. It’s time for the religious freedom bathroom protesters to “lawyer up.”

We don’t need pugnacious self-piety, self-righteous finger pointing and judgmental sermonizing; we need repentance and genuine pleas for God’s mercy and grace for all of America. And we need good legal strategies.

At the end of the day, forcing people to accept “free for all bathrooms” will not change people’s minds and hearts, nor God’s Word. Violating the civil and human rights of aborted children will not override God’s Word.

“Don’t be misled — you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.” Galatians 6:7 NLT

In order to obtain genuine, compassionate — God loves everyone — solutions in this battle between morality and immorality, we need divine compassion and divine intervention which is higher than our flawed justice system. Think about Haman and Queen Esther. God’s law superseded man’s law.

America, it’s praying time!

Alveda King: God harvests souls. The devil harvests baby body parts.

Friday, July 31st, 2015

150731 blog imageClick image to enlarge.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 31, 2015

Contact: Leslie Palma
leslie@priestsforlife.org
347-286-7277

Atlanta, GA – Opinion – In part four of the PPH expose by the Center for Medical Progress view undercover conversation with Dr. Savita Ginde, VP/Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) where she talks about coordinating with other Planned Parenthoods making sure that they’re “all saying the same thing, and that the CEOs are all saying the same thing;” and talking about their attorney creating layers so that it doesn’t look like they’re selling baby body parts.

Is PPH switching and padding? Yes – regardless of Cecile Richards’ flimsy defense that the videos are “highly doctored” and “highly edited.” The videos are also posted in their entirety, so her claims that, “it’s not a fee… It’s just the cost of transmitting the material” fall flat and false, because the videos clearly show the doctors negotiating a price at one point – wanting to charge per-item vs. a flat fee for several specimens because “we can see how much we can get out of it.”

PPH gets money from the mother for the abortion; then double-dips by collecting money for the baby body parts from the procurement companies.

“Switching price tags and padding the expense account are two things GOD hates.” – Proverbs 20:10 MSG.

In a news flash, a devil-worshipping group calling itself the Satanic Temple is raising funds to promote abortion-on-demand to counter legal efforts such as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and 20-week abortion bans. A highly publicized ceremonial unveiling of a satanic figure, an event billed as the “largest public satanic ceremony in history,” sold $25 and $75 tickets, the proceeds of which will be used to support the reproductive rights legal action fund.

Why connect the two? It’s a three headed demonic force.

Three Headed Monster Revised3Click image to enlarge.

Again, the pro-life struggle is part of a bigger battle going on in our world – a battle for souls – a battle between good and evil. Many don’t understand; in today’s culture, people like Cecile Richards call evil, good and good, evil. They are backed by so much money; their lying message is repeated so often, people begin to believe it; creating a ball of confusion.

In 1 Kings 18:20-40 ESV, Elijah asked the people: “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.”

It quickly becomes clear their “little g gods” have no power. On the other hand, CREATOR GOD proves to be mighty! Read the full passage here.

In closing: “The night is far gone; the day is at hand… let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.” – Romans 13:12 ESV.

“Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;” – Matthew 9:37 ESV.

We need to pray for souls, not kill them for sport and profit.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. – Romans 12:21 ESV.

Little Boy, Big Heart!

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

150422 blog image_tumblr_nlsjgjxvfx1u5cbz1o1_1280

***** DON’T MISS OPENING NIGHT! *****

My cycbroadcast.com radio co-host Emmanuel Boose and I recently cohosted private screenings for a great inspirational movie in Tupelo and Atlanta. The powerful film LITTLE BOY features a 7 year-old “little boy,” Pepper Flynt Busbee. In the title role, Jakob Salvati inspires a whole community with his faith, love and stick-to-itiveness.

Pepper has a special bond with his father which serves him well since he is constantly being picked on by his peers because of his short stature. His world is turned upside down when his father is called to military service in WWII and must leave his family for the first time.

When his dad doesn’t return home as scheduled, Pepper is devastated. With the help of the local pastor, Pepper’s childlike acceptance of God’s promise below allows him to believe that he can help bring his dad home from the war.

“Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. (Matthew 17.20)

This inspiration leads Pepper on a journey to increase his faith and to believe he can will his father back home from the war.

Holding on to a tiny mustard seed, Pepper begins to tackle fear, racial bigotry, ridicule and other evil forces.

While not entirely Bible based, this fine movie earns our five stars for inspiration. LITTLE BOY is a journey of faith, hope, and love. It will have you laughing one moment and misty eyed the next. Most of all the film teaches us that if you don’t have any hatred in your heart, your faith can make the impossible, possible.

“Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too. ” (Mark 11:22-25 NLT)

Executive Producers, Eduardo Verastegui, Roma Downey and Mark Burnet and Director, Alejandro Monteverde bring to the screen a sure to be classic.

Film opens for public enjoyment on Friday, April 24. Check your local theatres for showtimes and take your family and friends to see this movie. Also, don’t forget to make sure to share this blog with all your social media friends.

Should Christians Vote?

Friday, October 10th, 2014

SPACER141002 blog image7This is part three of what is becoming a series about voting. Some of the intel from the previous two articles is recapped here.

Just before I was born-again in 1983, I served two terms as a State Legislator for the 28th Georgia House District. I was a Democrat. Years later I served as a Republican Presidential Appointee. Along the way I remember learning that God is greater than politics and that politics can become an idol.

Coming from a Christian family who was very active in the 20th century Civil Rights Movement, we marched and some died for equality at the ballot box; the right to vote. So yes, I honor the privilege and responsibility of taking part in our electoral process.

Yet, for far too many, the issue of voting is still shrouded in debate. Many are still asking: “Should believers take part in the politics of this world, including elections?”

In 2008 two of my friends experienced startlingly revealing dreams about the soon to be “first Black President of America.” Please note that America’s president is not the first Black president in the world; only in America. For instance, countries on the continent of Africa have been electing Black presidents for ages.

So many Americans made an idol of a man’s skin color; electing him for the color of his skin rather than the content of his character.

Never mind that racism is based upon the lie that we are separate races rather than accepting the truth that we are one human race.

Acts 17:26 – “Of one blood God created all people…” YES! One race.

In 2008, amidst the skin color furor of the campaign trail, my radio co-host Emmanuel Boose of cycbroadcast.com was a surrogate speaker for the soon to be elected Black President of the United States. Just before the election, my friend dreamed of a field covered with black garbage bags. As he walked through the maze of bags, he heard a wailing cry from one of the bags. Investigation revealed that the bags were filled with aborted babies. Emmanuel woke up crying, sweating and praying. He knew that he couldn’t vote for his candidate. Emmanuel now had to raise his voice and his vote for the lives of the babies.

During the same time, the wife of another minister friend had recurring dreams of then Senator Obama in a hospital wearing a medical lab coat and a stethoscope. He appeared to be a doctor or medical professional.

It would later be revealed that as US President, Mr. Obama would support an HHS Mandate as a “healthcare cloak” for abortion and harmful experimental contraceptives. The medical guise in the dream represented the invasion of deceptive medical reform.

I was angry about what God was revealing at that time. We were going to elect the most abortion supporting, marriage threatening president we had ever known, and skin color would be used to do this. Wow!

Yet another minister friend, Rev. Clenard Childress of LEARN reminded me to forgive God because God would use this president to expose racism, abortion and the attack on Bible principles for marriage in a way that we had not yet seen.

Since that time, I’ve been praying for the President and his family; and have even visited the White House twice in the last seven years to express God’s love to the President.

Now, voting time is upon us again. Yes, I do vote. When I can’t reconcile my faith to the platforms, I write in names. Yet, I vote. People died for my right to do so.

So what do we do now? Let’s start at home base.

What does the Bible say about voting in elections? Surprisingly nothing specifically. Why?

Consider that in the times of Jesus the Jews were under Roman rule and they were not Roman citizens. Therefore, they were not permitted to vote. In fact, most Roman citizens couldn’t either. Only the very wealthy were allowed to vote.

But we can see in Acts 6:1-5 that an “election” of sorts did take place.

“Now at this time while the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint arose on the part of the Hellenistic Jews against the native Hebrews, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily serving of food. And the twelve summoned the congregation of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. “But select from among you, brethren, seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. “But we will devote ourselves to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” And the statement found approval with the whole congregation; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch.”

Clearly the seven were to help protect the rights of the people and settle the dispute between the Hellenistic Jews and the native Hebrews.

So it is with our government of today. Once the elected people, “politicians,” are in office, they are expected to safeguard our rights. But one difference is that in the Bible days, the people elected “men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom.” Today, you would have to question the “good” reputation of many in office and more importantly whether they are even men and women who are “full of the Spirit.”

In the elections of 2012, Billy Graham began a campaign, “Vote Biblical Values,” in which he encouraged people to vote for candidates that espoused biblical values and morality, “men/women full of the Spirit.”

So it should be for this election cycle and all elections as well.

In his recent report on “The Shemitah Prophecy” author Rabbi Johnathan Cahn talks about Biblical cycles of blessings which are sometimes affected by negative forces like economic depression, death affirming legislation, 9/11, world wars and the like. These cycles began in the days of Moses and are present today.
http://youtu.be/F6AXP41mr7Q and http://youtu.be/W8B14NSIWc8.

Of course the Shemitah is only one among many warnings of judgment. For example, the year 1963 when prayer was voted out of schools wasn’t a Shemitah year, but much harm has impacted our nation from that occurrence.

Still, all too many ignore God’s signs and judgments, preferring to consult astrology, psychics and demonology. Foolish and shameful!

“O foolish Galatians,” [and Americans] “who has bewitched you, that you turn away from obeying the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ has been evidently set forth, crucified among you?” Galatians 3:1 [annotated]

The Rabbi’s words on Shemitah reveal that the 1973 Roe VS Wade decision that made abortion – the killing of babies in the womb – legal is likely and largely connected to many of the problems America is experiencing.

Mother Theresa once said: “The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.”

She also said, “If we accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, rather, to use violence to get what they want.”

As in the days of old, isn’t that what the fear mongers of the world are doing today? Promoting greed and violence over regarding the sanctity of life… Selling birthrights and then shedding innocent blood to wrest erstwhile or unearned or unsecured inheritances by any means?

Yet all is not lost. We can still help shift our world towards a culture of life by voting for those who regard the sanctity of life, marriage, family and THE BIBLE.

So now, as we seek to reconcile everything, what would God have us learn regarding the electorate process?

The heart of God is expressed in the Bible as to His concern for government leaders and leadership by telling us as Christians that we should pray in this vein when we look at the admonition in the following verses:

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4

It is our duty as Christians and as citizens to participate in prayer for the elections and those who seek and gain power to lead. But are we to pray only and not vote?

“So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?” (James 2:17-20 NLT)

Some may say that the Bible doesn’t say vote so I’m not doing it. Well, I haven’t read in the Bible that we are to flush the commode after we use it, but I still do it. Seriously. Is anyone getting this?

So we pray in faith and then go to work; in this instance, vote.

With our votes we can elect godly men and women who will make laws that conform to biblical values.

Thankfully not all of us are called to be political servants. The majority of us will never hold office but still we have an important role to play. We must begin with prayer and discernment. We must educate ourselves on the stances of the candidates and vote accordingly.

October is the “Month for Life,” and is a critical month every year, especially in an election year. As we continue to pray over the upcoming elections, we ask you to spread your payers far and wide via your social media networks and email lists, and in your pro-life groups, community and civil rights meetings, and churches in the coming weeks.

After the elections, no matter what happens, continue to pray. Remember to warn your children and grandchildren about the foundation of Halloween being witchcraft.

Then get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, always thanking and giving glory to God for His goodness and the gift of His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. His pure, sinless, shed blood can never lose it’s power because it cannot die! Jesus’ blood never died. It was shed into the earth for us. He temporarily gave up his body, but was resurrected. HE LIVES.

Then on to the New Year of 2015, another Shemitah Year where the election cycle continues with the election of a new president. What does God have in store? His will is sure to be revealed.

Meanwhile, continue to pray and vote for candidates who agree with and follow THE BIBLE; who support life, marriage and family according to God’s way as if your quality of life is impacted by it. Because it is.

WHY WE MUST VOTE

Should believers take part in the politics of this world, including elections?

What does the Bible say about voting in elections? Nothing specifically.

Let’s remember that in the times of Jesus the Jews were under Roman rule and they were not Roman citizens. Therefore, they were not permitted to vote. In fact, most Roman citizens couldn’t either. Only the very wealthy were allowed to vote.

Clearly the seven were to help protect the rights of the people and settle the dispute between the Hellenistic Jews and the native Hebrews.

So it is with our government of today. These elected people, “politicians,” are supposed to safeguard our rights. But the difference is that they elected “men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom.” Today, you would have to question the “good” reputation of many in office and more importantly whether they are even men and women who are “full of the Spirit.”

In the elections of 2012, Billy Graham began a campaign, “Vote Biblical Values,” in which he encouraged people to vote for candidates that espoused biblical values and morality, “men/women full of the Spirit.”

So it should be for this election cycle and all elections as well.

It seems that our nation and the whole world is getting further away from God and His teachings. And we are paying for our sins. It’s evident in current events. ISIS, Iran, Russia invading other countries, beheadings of prisoners of various nations, and even a beheading in America.

A couple of quotes from Mother Teresa are appropriate for our discussion. She said: “The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.”

Abortion breaks the most sacred bond, the bond between a mother and her baby, and reduces the sanctity of life to someone’s “choice.” If we are willing to accept abortion then how can we be surprised when one person makes the “choice” that your life must end because you don’t believe what they believe?

She also said, “If we accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, rather, to use violence to get what they want.” Isn’t that what ISIS is doing? What Russia is doing? What Alton Nolen did? Accepting violence over regarding the sanctity of life…

We can help shift our world towards a culture of life by voting for those who regard the sanctity of life. What would God have us learn regarding the electorate process?

The heart of God is expressed in the Bible as to His concern for government leaders and leadership by telling us as Christians that we should pray in this vein when we look at the admonition in the following verses:

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4

It is our duty as Christians and as citizens to participate in the elections. With our vote, we can elect godly men that will make laws that conform to biblical values.

Not all are called to be political servants. The majority of us will never hold office but we have an important role to play. We must begin with prayer and discernment. We must educate ourselves on the stances of the candidates and vote accordingly.
