An Open Letter

Mr. Mayor & Council Members,

Thank you for putting this ordinance on next meeting’s agenda for vote. Thank you for recognizing the value of human life and the need to take a stand to protect that life from those who seek to destroy it. I am praying for you. My church is praying for you. The vast majority of Big Spring is praying for you. And many others from all across the country are praying for you. We are asking God to bless each of you and to keep you strong and courageous. 

The vote you cast on December 10th and January 14th will be your legacy. You will either vote to defend the defenseless–to protect the most innocent among us–or, you will choose to cave to pressure and empty threats. Your vote will reveal your ultimate allegiances and your fundamental beliefs. If you believe “in the beginning God” then the issue is already settled. God’s Word is clear: abortion is the murder of an innocent image-bearer of God (Exodus 21:22-25) who was created by God (Psalm 139:13-14) for his glory (Isaiah 43:7). However, if you believe “in the beginning no God“, then, to quote from an antagonist to this ordinance, a baby in the womb is nothing more than a “parasite”. Fundamentally, those are your two options. Either the baby in the womb is a human image-bearer of God, full of dignity and value, or she is a parasite that can be ripped apart and disposed of at will. Which do you believe? Your vote will tell.

Mr. Mayor and Council Members, on December 10th and January 14th, choose life. Establish justice in Big Spring, Texas. Let that be your legacy.

“Hate evil, and love good, and establish justice in the gate.” – Amos 5:15

“Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” – Isaiah 1:16-17

“If God is for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31
