Faith Matters in Maine UPDATE – January 17, 2013: “Honoring and protecting human life”
January is Sanctity of Life month and this January marks the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. In the past 40 years over 55 million babies have been legally killed in the United States. The blood of these children should incite a righteous indignation jolting us from our positions of ease and comfort. Yet our anger and sorrow concerning this grievous practice cannot be our primary motivation. Neither can we allow our desire for justice eclipse our compassion for all those deceived and bound by Satan’s agenda of destruction. In honoring and protecting human life from conception to natural death, we glorify the Creator of life whose image we bear. Lord, may your glory be our passion.
