πŸ™ Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The words you’re about to read come from a place of deep concern, stirred by a recent disconcerting article [link: https://www.cosmopolitan.com/lifestyle/a45613416/satanic-group-abortion-clinic-samuel-alito-mom/] that has deeply troubled my spirit. The piece discusses a satanic group advocating for unrestricted abortion and targeting a Supreme Court Justice.

The distressing reality of such advocacy and the profound evil it represents compelled me to speak out. As Christians, we cannot remain silent when such darkness seeks to undermine the sanctity of life and infiltrate our society’s fabric and its morel value.

In response to this troubling revelation, I feel a strong conviction to address the critical issue of abortion and the Church’s role in advocating for the sanctity of life. This post is a call to action, a plea for unwavering prayer, and an encouragement for active advocacy against such grievous acts that undermine the very essence of life.

The sickening reality of abortion troubles me deeplyβ€”

it’s an act that is fundamentally wrong, evil, and deeply concerning on multiple levels. Our children need not only our prayers but also our active advocacy, urging every Christian to boldly raise their voice against this grievous atrocity.

The responsibility squarely falls upon the Church’s shoulders to take a resolute and unwavering stand against abortion. Unfortunately, a veil of silence often drapes over many Christians, influenced by fear of societal judgment or due to disagreements regarding the sanctity of life. This silence is deafening and must be shattered by the resounding cry of God’s people.

This year, I am dedicating myself not only to fervent prayer but also to active involvement against all legislation and institutions perpetuating abortion. It’s not just enough to hold personal convictions; every Christian must engage with the Scriptures, seeking personal revelation, and then take a firm stand against this grievous act that tarnishes the very essence of life.

While I anticipate possible backlash to this post, I refuse to engage in fruitless debates. My sole purpose is to rally fellow believers, urging them to stand against this evil that wreaks havoc on the lives of our children.

Sadly, in some quarters of our Christian community, faith without accompanying action seems to prevail, forgetting that “faith without works is dead.” It’s disheartening to witness a trend where faith has been reduced to feel-good works or, conversely, a professedly robust faith is accompanied by a stagnant, inactive church.

In finding resonance with Paul’s gratitude for being made more righteous through faith, I recognize that it’s not about boasting but expressing profound gratitude for God’s transformative work in our lives. As we reflect on Jesus’ words to the woman with the issue of blood, “your faith hath made you whole,” we understand the completed and transformative nature of our faith’s power. Our faith isn’t passive; it’s active, dynamic, and capable of miraculous transformation.

Therefore, if you share this belief, join me. Let us petition God fervently for divine intervention in the lives of expectant mothers. May our prayers not be mere words but catalysts for action, guiding compassionate workers to provide tangible support to these mothers in need and helping to dismantle the societal strongholds that plague our nation.

May our actions and prayers serve as a beacon of hope, advocating for the sanctity of life, and standing firmly against the forces that seek to harm our children.

In dedication, unwavering faith, and active pursuit of righteousness, James Knox

Breaking Down the Verses:

Psalm 139:13-16

The Hebrew word used here is “yatsar,” depicting God’s intimate involvement in our formation, much like a potter shaping clay. This emphasizes God’s deliberate and meticulous creation of each individual, showcasing the immeasurable value He places on every life right from its inception.

  • Psalm 139:13-16 (KJV): “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee when I was made in secret and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book, all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned when as yet there was none of them.”

Jeremiah 1:5

In Jeremiah 1:5, the Hebrew term “qadam” signifies God’s foreknowledge and plan for His prophets. This term highlights God’s intimate involvement and purposeful design for each life, extending beyond physical existence, emphasizing His ordained plan for individuals even before their physical conception.

  • Jeremiah 1:5 (KJV): “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”

Romans 3:22

The Greek term “dikaiosyne” in Romans 3:22 emphasizes righteousness as a gift through faith in Christ, not attained by human deeds. This righteousness originates from God and forms the basis for recognizing the intrinsic value of life within His divine order, highlighting that righteousness is bestowed through faith in Christ.

  • Romans 3:22 (KJV): “Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference.”

Galatians 2:16

The Greek word “pisteos” in Galatians 2:16 underscores that righteousness comes solely through faith in Christ. This emphasizes the importance of faith in Jesus and its role in advocating for the unborn within the context of God’s divine righteousness, emphasizing that justification before God is exclusively through faith in Christ.

  • Galatians 2:16 (KJV): “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”

Romans 12:2

“Metamorphoo,” the Greek term in Romans 12:2, depicts a radical transformation, urging resistance against societal norms devaluing life. Rooted in God’s truth, this transformation prompts us to embody Christ’s love through compassionate action, bringing about a spiritual metamorphosis in our approach to advocating for the sanctity of life.

  • Romans 12:2 (KJV): “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
  • May our petitions ascend to the throne of grace, resonating with the divine compassion of our Heavenly Father. Let our prayers intertwine with the very heartbeat of God, expressing not only our profound concern but also our unwavering trust in His sovereignty.
  • The Scriptures resound with instances where prayer has profoundly moved the hand of God, bringing about remarkable change:
  • β€’ James 5:16 (KJV): “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” This verse underlines the immense power held within earnest and sincere prayers, emphasizing their effectiveness.
  • β€’ Matthew 18:19-20 (KJV): “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” These verses emphasize the potency of unified prayer, assuring us that God hears and responds when believers unite in prayer.
  • β€’ Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV): “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Here, prayer is more than seeking help; it’s a pathway to experience incomprehensible peace.
  • β€’ 1 John 5:14-15 (KJV): “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” This passage emphasizes our confidence in God’s responsiveness to our prayers aligned with His will.
  • Our prayers, when offered in faith and aligned with God’s will, hold incredible power. They aren’t merely uttered words but a sacred communion with the Almighty, a channel through which divine intervention and transformational change occur.
  • Now, speaking of the foundational principle of “Sola Scriptura”:
  • In today’s complex world, where diverse opinions collide, “Sola Scriptura” stands as an unwavering truth for the Christian faith. Translating to “Scripture Alone,” it declares the Bible as the supreme authority in matters of faith, doctrine, and practice within Christianity.
  • “Sola Scriptura” asserts that the Scriptures, divinely inspired and preserved by God, hold supremacy above human tradition or personal revelation. It emerged during the Protestant Reformation, championed by reformers seeking a return to the purity of biblical teachings.
  • The Scriptures, comprising the Old and New Testaments, are God’s revelation, guiding us in faith, conduct, salvation, and understanding God’s will. Embracing “Sola Scriptura” necessitates diligent study, understanding, and aligning lives with its divine precepts.
  • This principle urges believers to examine doctrines against the Bible, ensuring alignment with its sacred truths. In facing critical issues like abortion, “Sola Scriptura” directs us to seek wisdom from Scripture, shaping our understanding and advocacy for the sanctity of life.
  • In advocating for the unborn, let’s anchor our convictions, actions, and prayers in the profound truths of Scripture, embracing “Sola Scriptura” as a guiding principle.
  • May our commitment to Scripture empower and guide us as we stand fervently for the sanctity of life against forces that seek to harm our children.

“So, I implore you to stand with me in making this year, the year of ‘Sola Scriptura.’ Let us together anchor our beliefs, actions, and prayers in the unwavering truths of Scripture. May our commitment to Scripture guide us as we fervently advocate for the sanctity of life and stand against the forces that seek to harm our children.

In dedication, unwavering faith, and active pursuit of righteousness,

James Knox”
