Conspiracy of Silence

Abraham Lincoln said, “To sin by silence when you should protest makes cowards of men.” Christ died for us and asks us to care about each other. Christ died for us and that gives us compassion for our fellow men, especially those in mortal danger. The bumper sticker says: “If you’re not completely appalled by now, you’re just not paying attention.” How many more babies have to die before the people of God will stand up and say, “Enough!!!?”

Abortion is a national and international disgrace. The blood of the aborted cries out. “We have been silent too long.” God is on the side of those who stand for Life. He gives victory to those on the side of truth. So, do not be afraid to wear a Precious Feet Pin or put a Pro-Life bumper sticker on your car. Support your local pregnancy centers and other Pro-Life organizations.

When you stand before the judgment seat of God, you will be glad you did something. You will also be glad that Jesus did something so you can live well now and eternally.

One practical thing you can do this election year is to vote for Pro-Life candidates and vote YES on Amendment 62, the Personhood Amendment in Colorado.
