NEW YORK, NY — Priests for Life Executive Director Janet Morana this week published a column for the National Catholic Register about a young woman with terminal brain cancer who publicly announced plans to kill herself Nov. 1 using lethal drugs obtained under Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act. The column can be read here:

http://www.ncregister.com/blog/JMorana/glen-campbell-and-brittany-maynard-face-their-mortality-very-differently

Mrs. Morana released a new statement today regarding the young woman’s public statement that Nov. 1 might not be the right time:

“In a video recorded two weeks ago and released over the last day, Oregon resident Brittany Maynard says Nov. 1 might not be the right time to take her own life. That’s wonderful news, and I hope she never takes those lethal drugs. But the damage has already been done. She is still actively promoting the right to die, when we have no such right. It’s a lie and a stain of violence on our society. I pray to God she decides not to kill herself and instead goes to a hospice program and leaves this earth when God wants to call her home. But the point is not whether and when she decides to end her life. Oregon’s law helped this woman to despair, and will help other families push inconvenient people out of the way. That damage won’t be undone even if she decides not to end her own life.

“If you think gay marriage hit this country like grassfire, then stand back and watch how this illegitimate right-to-die movement snowballs. We need prayer, right now.”

Fr. Pavone: Let the Pulpits Thunder!

October 30th, 2014

PriestsForLife

Washington, DC: Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today and sent it to every parish in the nation:

“This weekend is the final push to turn out voters for Election Day. All of us at Priests for Life want to thank in advance the countless priests whom we know will let their pulpits thunder as they remind their people of what is at stake in this election and urge them to get to the polls. The best tool to use for preaching this weekend is the US Bishops’ document Living the Gospel of Life (1998). It makes very clear what so many people want to confuse or hide, namely, that the right to life is the foundational issue in any election.

“We urge every preacher this weekend to emphasize the following words that come from that document:

“Any politics of human life must work to resist the violence of war and the scandal of capital punishment. Any politics of human dignity must seriously address issues of racism, poverty, hunger, employment, education, housing, and health care. Therefore, Catholics should eagerly involve themselves as advocates for the weak and marginalized in all these areas. Catholic public officials are obliged to address each of these issues as they seek to build consistent policies which promote respect for the human person at all stages of life. But being ‘right’ in such matters can never excuse a wrong choice regarding direct attacks on innocent human life. Indeed, the failure to protect and defend life in its most vulnerable stages renders suspect any claims to the ‘rightness’ of positions in other matters affecting the poorest and least powerful of the human community. If we understand the human person as the “temple of the Holy Spirit” — the living house of God — then these latter issues fall logically into place as the crossbeams and walls of that house. All direct attacks on innocent human life, such as abortion and euthanasia, strike at the house’s foundation. These directly and immediately violate the human person’s most fundamental right the right to life. Neglect of these issues is the equivalent of building our house on sand” (LGL, n. 23).

“Moreover, Priests for Life urges Churches to remind their parishioners to get to the polls on Election Day, and to assist with transportation where necessary.

“Furthermore, it is important this weekend not to get bent out of shape if people show up in the parking lot to distribute voter education materials. First of all, Churches should be handing out non-partisan voter guides to their people inside the Church. Secondly, no Church is going to get into trouble with the IRS because an outside group organizes and pays for literature distribution on the cars in their parking lots, even if that literature is highly partisan. In fact, I will guarantee it. Pastors and Churches should be more concerned about the trouble they might get into for interfering with citizens’ rights to mobilize and educate voters than the trouble they may have been told they will get into for simply ignoring it.

“Again, we honor and thank the many priests who will step up to the plate this weekend and help citizens elect pro-life candidates.”

Moral Bankruptcy Has No Bounds

October 29th, 2014

141029 blog image

I recently read an article on One News Now which states that “President Barrack Obama and his administration are endorsing the use of cell lines extracted from aborted babies to develop Ebola vaccines, even though the government conceded that using moral alternatives – such as plant and animal cells – would be just as effective.”

I read this while I was on a www.restorethedream2014.com tour where I had been broadcasting facts about the moral bankruptcy of our nation and the lack of moral leadership coming out of this administration. There were major highlights to the tour of course; one being www.thefergusonresponse.com.

As the article states, there is an assault on life by backing and fast-tracking the use of aborted fetal cells instead of the more successful use of adult stem cell research or other forms of cell lines.

Ebola is deadly: I get that. But to do something immoral to achieve a moral good is not acceptable, especially if there are other moral alternatives.

In another article I read, it states: “The Ebola outbreak in West Africa risks unleashing an economic catastrophe that will leave a “lost generation” of young West Africans, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said on Sunday, urging stronger international action.”

“The worst epidemic on record of the deadly [Ebola] virus has now killed more than 4,500 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. Eight people have also died in Nigeria and cases have been reported in the United States and Spain.”

“Johnson Sirleaf, a former senior World Bank executive, said Ebola was having a dire economic impact in the worst affected countries, with harvests missed, markets shut and borders closed. She said the outbreak had undone much of the recovery achieved in the wake of Liberia’s 1989-2003 civil war.”

As bad as Ebola is, and it’s really bad, US and global abortion has left a larger void. The Ebola crisis adds insult to injury as far as eugenics and genocide are concerned.

With over 3,000 babies being aborted each day in America alone and over 110,000 worldwide, what economic impact is the loss of these missing people having on our world? Add the Ebola victims to the numbers, and the count just keeps mounting.

Billions of dollars are being spent on abortion each year. Planned Parenthood alone receives over half a billing tax dollars from our government. And many at the UN want to spend much more to make abortion more accessible around the world.

How much lost revenue has there been because of the over 1.3 billion missing people. How many harvests have been missed? How many businesses were never begun? How many jobs were never created? How many products were never invented? How many vaccines were never developed?

In a world that devalues human life to the point that a human baby has less value and protection than an eagle egg, sea turtles, or ladybugs, it’s no surprise that killing unborn babies for the purpose of harvesting their stem cells is quite acceptable to many people.

In a world that accepts that it’s legal to kill one’s own child because of inconvenience or not fitting with one’s plans, how can we be surprised that there is so much crime, and so many killings in the world?

As Mother Teresa 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.”

If we want to change the course of American history from a culture of death to a culture of life, we must begin today. We must work to change people’s hearts. We must become moral people. And we must begin by electing moral people to office that are not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Vote early, vote absentee, or vote on November 4th. Just make sure you exercise your right to VOTE. Vote as if your life, the lives of aborted babies, ISIS victims, Ebola victims, all victims are impacted by our votes; because it is true.

From Jeremiah to Ferguson: A Road Trip Report

October 27th, 2014

In September 2014 I accepted an invitation from Niger Innis of The Congress on Racial Equality (CORE) to join him in launching a new initiative, www.restorethedream2014.com. After prayer and consideration, I took a week off from work to join Niger on what has turned out to be a whirlwind tour of revelation and mind boggling transformation of hearts and communities. What is our message?

Jobs – Let the PEOPLE work!

Life – Let the PEOPLE live long and prosper!

Family – Let the PEOPLE [SPIRIT, SOUL and BODY] heal!

Education – Let the PEOPLE know.

Security – Let the PEOPLE pray.

THE WORD – “Let my PEOPLE go!”

WE ARE THE PEOPLE!!!

Pray for Peace and Justice!

141027 blog image

From October 20-25, 2014, we were on the road. Interestingly my daily Bible readings in the book of Jeremiah along with other scriptures have provided a very powerful and reliable “road map” for us to follow along the way.

In this report, I won’t be able to record the names of all of the great and powerful leaders and community members whom we have either met for the first time or reconnected with. They are great men and women in our network, and it would be a slight not to acknowledge them, if not by name, then at least by the spirit in which their contributions are received.

Here follows a condensed schedule of events. More will follow in the days to come. An unlikely coalition of conservatives and liberals are coming together in a way that only God can orchestrate. In some ways, Niger and I have agreed that he will take the “political” lead while I prayerfully focus on the spiritual aspects of the campaign. That doesn’t mean that Niger doesn’t pray and that I don’t vote; of course we are united in our efforts. We each just do what we do best, while working on the road with Communications Director Joel, and publicists Dianne and Ruth from Brimstone Services. What a team God has provided. And special thanks to all of our constant prayer partners; we wouldn’t want to try to do this without your help! God bless everyone!

Psalms 96: 2-4 Sing to the Lord; praise his name. Each day proclaim the good news that he saves. Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does. Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods.

In a fearful and yet hopeful way, we have embarked on this quest. It is not an impossible dream, and against all odds, we are moving forward; crying out for mercy in the midst of judgment…

2 Timothy 4: 1-5 (New Living Translation) I solemnly urge you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who will someday judge the living and the dead when he appears to set up his Kingdom: Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths. But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you.

Our team could tell you that the only thing that has held us together during this journey has been the presence of God. There were a few times that I became very “rattled” and they were concerned. We found ourselves seeking God with all of our hearts.

Psalms 94:17-19 “Unless the Lord had helped me, I would soon have settled in the silence of the grave. I cried out – I am slipping! – but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”

While reading reports from righteous co-warriors on the road, I found myself asking:

Psalms 94:20-22 “Can unjust leaders claim that God is on their side – leaders whose decrees permit injustice? They gang up against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the Lord is our fortress; our God is the mighty rock where we hide!”

>http://www.wncn.com/story/26877196/fayetteville-minister-says-openly-gay-judicial-candidate-is-biased

>http://www.breakingchristiannews.com/articles/display_art.html?ID=14834

Along the way, people started calling us, telling us that they were praying Psalms 91 with us! We were comforted by the promises of God from the Old Testament, and from Jesus in the New Testament, that He would never leave us or forsake us!

Moses at the Burning Bush
Exodus 3:11-13 But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the sons of Israel out of Egypt?” And He said, “Certainly I will be with you, and this shall be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God at this mountain.” Then Moses said to God, “Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you.’ Now they may say to me, ‘What is His name?’ What shall I say to them?

My Uncle ML (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) is often called a “Black Moses.” We know that Moses went to his mountaintop, and so did Uncle ML. I must admit that I sometimes feel like Moses may have felt; asking God “who am I that I should go across America proclaiming Jubilee? And God responds to me and to you as well: “I will be with you!”

Well, on October 20, 2014 a group of valiant warriors met at the MLK Mountaintop Memorial in DC and a new journey began. You can meet the growing company of leaders at our new website. God promises to be with us, and we ask you to join us at www.restorethedream2014.com .

Friends, not only did God bless us at the DC Press Conference and launch of restorethedream2014.com; at the media blitz in New York City; and at a powerful voter education/prayer meeting in North Carolina with Dr. Johnny Hunter, Pastor P. L. Wooden, Bishop E. W. Jackson, and other powerful leaders; we kept going.

We went on to Ferguson, MO where our first stop was a “Tent Meeting” with The Ferguson Response headed up by longtime friend, JT (Jonathan Tremaine) Thomas and other Christian leaders. We arrived on Day 19 of the meetings, where the testimonies of healings, deliverances and salvation from the 21 Day Long Tent Meeting were overflowing throughout the Ferguson community.

The next day we joined Dr. A. Wayne Jones and other powerful spiritual leaders of the AAHMO Embassy Collaborative for a prayerful briefing regarding the state of Ferguson. We departed their company for hopeful conversations with local officials including the mayor, police chief and a feisty state legislator.

On the tour, we experienced many Prophetic Prayer Meetings where we prayed with men, women and children from various spiritual, ethnic, political and socio-economic backgrounds. When our journey began, I had been reading Jeremiah for days. When we joined Dr. Jones in Ferguson, it was revealed that all of the women ministers at that meeting had been studying the book of Jeremiah simultaneously. Together, we prayed over Jeremiah 44:19 and repented for the spirit of rebellion among women.

As we were winding to a close, Niger was invited to speak to a Men’s Prayer Group on Friday evening. His message was well received. Then finally, on Saturday, October 25, 2014, there was the 21st Day of the Ferguson Response Tent Meeting, where Jonathan hosted a panel which included our friend Lynne Jackson, the great-granddaughter of the historical liberator Dred Scott. It was truly a blessing for Niger, Wayne Dupree and I to follow her on the panel; and later to meet Pastor Elchel Johnson, Pastor of Inspiring You Christian Church and Uncle of Michael Brown. He gave a very powerful prayer at the Tent Meeting, which he had attended throughout.

All in all, this was an incredible tour bringing a message of faith, hope, love and unity to a hurting world. Please stay tuned and pray with us as we all see how God is answering the united prayer in response to 2 Chronicles 7:14 and indeed all of the sincere and fervent prayers of the saints that are bombarding Heaven during this time of trouble and yet hope and promise. God bless you until next time.

Pray For The Ballot

October 17th, 2014

Vote: Pray For The Ballot in 2014 and 2015

141002 blog image9Not in recent history has an elections been as important as the upcoming mid-term elections on November 2, 2014. With the directions our country is heading, now is the time for Christians to step up to the voting booth and make their votes count so we can turn our directions around. All the recent events of today, terrorist beheadings, Ebola crisis, the economy, education and Common Core, unemployment, abortion, attacks on religious freedom, all, are a result of our turning away from our God and the culture of life and embracing a culture of death. Now, this election cycle, is the time for men and women of faith to vote their biblical values and help steer America back on a path to freedom: freedom from terror, freedom from disease, freedom from joblessness, freedom from abortion. The Church in America is instrumental in accomplishing this so we call on Pastors of every denomination to inspire their congregations to vote for biblical principles.

In 1957, my Uncle ML demanded “Give Us The Ballot.” Now in 2014-2015 I am urging us to “pray for the ballot and vote for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Our nation deserves no less.

From “Give Us the Ballot, We Will Transform the South [Nation]” by Martin Luther King, Jr. Speech given before the Lincoln Memorial at the March on Washington, May 17, 1957 [annotated where indicated]

“Give us the ballot and we will no longer have to worry the federal government about our basic rights. Give us the ballot and we will no longer plead to the federal government for passage of an anti-lynching law; we will by the power of our vote write the law on the statute books of the [southern] states and bring an end to the dastardly acts of the [hooded] perpetrators of violence. Give us the ballot and we will fill our legislative halls with men [and women] of good will, and send to the sacred halls of Congressmen who will not sign a [Southern] Manifesto, because of their devotion to the manifesto of justice.”

Fr. Frank Pavone – Supreme Court’s Texas Order Inexplicable

October 17th, 2014

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: October 14, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s order blocking the enforcement of Texas’s law requiring abortion clinics to meet minimum health and safety standards.

“The Supreme Court did not explain its order in the challenge to Texas’s law protecting women’s health. Perhaps that’s because the court’s order is inexplicable. Women’s health is on the line and six justices ruled that abortionists can continue to rake in the cash rather than make their clinics safer for women.

“We know that the abortion lobby is now rejecting the slogan ‘safe, legal, and rare’ because the word ‘rare’ correctly implies that there’s something wrong with abortion. It’s obvious that abortion promoters also don’t like the term ‘safe,’ because making facilities safer for women means less cash in their pockets. Now, thanks to the Supreme Court’s order, Texas abortionists’ bank accounts won’t take a hit – women will.”

Should Christians Vote?

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?

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.” (NASB77, highlighting added)

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.

Texas is a Victory, Because Abortionists Just Don’t Care

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling allowing Texas to enforce its abortion clinic standards law while the court examines its constitutionality.

“The 5th Circuit’s decision is a great victory for women’s health,” said Fr. Pavone. “We have seen too many young women harmed, sometimes fatally, because of botched abortions. The Texas legislature, as recognized by the court, acted in the public interest and the public’s health. The reason some see this law as ‘restrictive’ rather than ‘protective’ is that they do not yet know the extent of corruption and malpractice in the abortion industry.”

“There is no good reason to oppose having clinic hallways wide enough for a gurney to pass through. Abortionists just don’t think women are worth the expense,” added Fr. Pavone. “Unless, of course, the abortion lobby thinks that a woman who’s bleeding to death should just walk to the ambulance.”

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
