To: Editor (Letters to
Editor), RICHMOND TIMES DISPATCH
From: Fillmer Hevener, 392-6255
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.
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.
to commend all Christians and Christian organizations which
follow the Bible command in the Ten Commandments: “Thou shall
not murder.” (Exodus 20: 13.)
can a Christian compromise on an issue involving the sanctity of
human life, given as a sacred gift from the Creator, Himself?
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.”
in Ephesians 5:11, Paul writes, “And have no fellowship with the
unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
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.
political and moral issues converge, light must make no pact
