To: Editor (Letters to Editor), RICHMOND TIMES DISPATCH

From: Fillmer Hevener, 392-6255

Recently President Obama called for dialogue and compromise on the question of abortion, the killing of the fetus. Sometimes political and moral issues converge; whether or not to murder the unborn is such an issue.

The President has made clear his views on abortion. As a candidate for president, he said that the first thing that he would do as president is sign the Freedom Of Choice Act. As an Illinois senator, he refused to vote for a born-alive infant bill that would have outlawed infanticide. It is Obama who signed an executive order allowing the use of taxpayer funds for overseas abortions. It is he who supports the use of taxpayer funds to provide abortions in the U.S.

I wish to commend all Christians and Christian organizations which follow the Bible command in the Ten Commandments: “Thou shall not murder.” (Exodus 20: 13.)

How can a Christian compromise on an issue involving the sanctity of human life, given as a sacred gift from the Creator, Himself?

In 2 Corinthians 6:14-17, the Apostle Paul admonishes that “light and darkness” can have no communion. “Come out from among them (evil doers) and be ye separate….touch not the unclean thing.”

Again in Ephesians 5:11, Paul writes, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

1 John 3:4, tells us that sin is the transgression of God’s law. Ezekiel l8:20 states that the person who sins shall die. Therefore, the Bible clearly teaches that mankind shall be judged by God’s law, His word.

When political and moral issues converge, light must make no pact with darkness!
