Lanterns: Choose Life, America!

Choose Life, America!

When it was finally announced that Joe Biden had chosen Kamala Harris as his running mate, we realized that a deadly alliance had been formed between the abortion industry (i.e. Planned Parenthood) and the Democratic party. This deadly alliance will result in the death of American citizens, at taxpayer expense, before they are even born if the Democratic candidates win the 2020 election. It is our duty to stand for the rights set forth in the U. S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence that have been purchased at such great cost: the Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Let’s look at these rights further:

  1. Life: The conclusion that human life begins at sperm-egg fusion is uncontested, objective, based on the universally accepted scientific method of distinguishing different cell types from each other and on ample scientific evidence (thousands of independent, peer-reviewed publications). Moreover, it is entirely independent of any specific ethical, moral, political, or religious view of human life or of human embryos. Indeed, this definition does not directly address the central ethical question surrounding the embryo: What value ought society place on human life at the earliest stages of development?  A neutral examination of the evidence merely establishes the onset of a new human life at a scientifically well-defined “moment of conception,” a conclusion that unequivocally indicates that human embryos from the one-cell stage forward are indeed living individuals of the human species; i.e., human beings. – Dr. Condic is Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah School of Medicine. 
  2. Liberty: Broadly speaking, liberty is the ability to do as one pleases. … In this sense, the exercise of liberty is subject to capability and limited by the rights of others. Thus liberty entails the responsible use of freedom under the rule of law without depriving anyone else of their freedom. (Wikipedia)
  3. The Pursuit of Happiness: Using happiness as the aim of public policy is not a new idea. In fact, to understand this perspective on governance, one must only look again to Thomas Jefferson who once wrote, “the care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government.”[14]

I wonder what Thomas Jefferson would think of our new “protests” that result in the destruction of property, murder, and “cancel culture” movement? Certainly, he would be appalled!

I reported in my last post, “Fixing the Machine“, that our only hope for America was repentance and a return to the godly roots of our forefathers. I’m not the only one to reach and share this conclusion:

 

 

I also shared this quote from Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president of Planned Parenthood:

“This is literally a life and death election.”

2020 is the year that America will choose not just democracy or socialism for our government; but, mostly, it is the year that we choose between life and death.

Please join us in praying for revival and joining the grassroots movements toward that are breaking out in the cities that have been the most disrupted throughout our land in recent weeks. (I understand that you haven’t heard about this in the news cycle.)

 

 

We also need to remember for our nation in the face of the continued persecution of the Christian church under the guise of protection from the spread of Covid-19. Liberty Counsel is defending pastors who are now being charged with criminal activity for practicing religious liberty in the face of discrimination in California. If you’re concerned about the Covid-19 situation and danger of attending church this morning, please view the following video:

 

In lieu of the recent political conventions that were just held, the lines could not be more clear: abortion is the key issue in this election. It’s clearly a matter of life and death, not only for our pre-born citizens, but for America herself.

 

Whether you are able to attend a church service this morning or not, I hope that you will continue to pray for revival in America throughout the next 60 days until this historic election. Pray that we will remain “One Nation Under God” rather than adopting the Democratic version of the Pledge of Allegiance which deletes the words, “under God”.

 

Truly, we are voting for much more than the next president of the United States of America.

Choose Life

15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

16 In that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

20 That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

 Deuteronomy 30:15-20 (King James Version)
