Answers to a biblical-theological-ethical question

"Answers to a biblical-theological-ethical question" Continued...

And if you say that everything hangs on whether the fetus is a human child, are you willing to go before national television in the Oval Office and defend your support for the “Freedom of Choice Act” by holding in your hand a 21-week-old fetus and explaining why this little one does not have the fundamental, moral, and constitutional right to life? Are you willing to say to parents in this church who lost a child at that age and held him in their hands, this being in your hands is not and was not a child with any rights of its own under God or under law?

Perhaps you have good answers to each of these questions. We will honor you by expecting you to defend your position forthrightly in the public eye. You have immense power as president of the United States. To wield it against the protection of the unborn without giving a public accounting in view of moral and scientific reality would be dishonorable. We will honor you by expecting better.

8. Trusting the sovereign, loving purpose of God. Finally we will honor you by trusting that the purpose of our sovereign and loving God to defend the fatherless and contend for the defenseless and to exalt the meek will triumph through your presidency. And to that end we will pray for you as Christ our King commands us.
