We need to pray for Senator Obama's repentance regarding numerous federal policies .......
You are right, I can not let the "political" aspect go.
We received the fax (titled as in my post) today at church and it went into details about the up-coming choice.
Here are some of their language:
Our nation faces a fork, a divergence between the high road and the low road -- and you and your congregation could very well determine the direction we take. The high road upholds America's peaceful tradition of Judeo-Christian tolerance and morality. The low road marches us toward militant secular-paganism, militant Islam, or both.
The high road upholds traditional marriage between one man and one woman, and the sanctity of innocent human life that springs from such unions. The low road favors homosexual "marriage" and child sacrifice (we're not referring to familiar abortion here – see below).
The high road upholds the rights of pastors, priests and rabbis to "speak truth to power" in the tradition of Moses, Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, (and for Christians) John the Baptist, Peter, Paul, Stephen and Jesus. The low road would officially censor the Judeo-Christian view from the public square.
They want us to show a "sermon" this Sunday to make our congregation aware of the issues at hand. Here is the video.
We, as a church, will not be showing the video.
I really struggle on how I feel about the Christian Community making thee pushes.
