Pastor: Will you sign a public statement affirming marriage?

July 26, 2012 No Comments by CCL Communications

 Pastor to Pastor from the Maine Jeremiah Project  (affiliated with the Christian Civic League of Maine)

Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you…and pray to the Lord on its behalf…”
Jeremiah 29:7

We are again joined in a battle to protect the Biblical definition of Marriage in Maine law and to protect the religious freedom of Maine citizens. “Mainers United for Marriage is the alliance of homosexual advocates who are seeking passage of a November referendum which requires recognition of homosexual unions as “marriage”. They have already amassed over 1.2 million dollars for this cause.

I am serving as the Chair of Protect Marriage Maine and serve on the executive committee with Brian Brown  (National Organization for Marriage) and Carroll Conley (Christian Civic League of Maine).

I am writing to request your help, not only for our campaign, or even for the protection of marriage. I write to ask you to stand with me to give testimony
to the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. His Word is clear:

Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘for this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?”

Now, as part of their effort to redefine marriage, Mainers United for Marriage claims several hundred “clergy”are giving their support to the effort.

Will you stand with me to proclaim that true marriage is the union of a man and a woman and urge fellow Mainers to vote “NO” on Question One in November? Please give me permission to add your name as a supporter of the following statement:
We support the Biblical and traditional definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. We urge the people of Maine to oppose the efforts to redefine this vital foundation of faith and culture by voting “NO” in November.
If you are willing to do so, please reply to this email address and give your name, title and the name of your church or ministry. (Your church or ministry name is for identification purposes only and does not imply an endorsement of that organization)

It is my heartfelt desire to help Maine see that the Church of Jesus Christ is still the “pillar and support of the truth.” We want the Church to be
seen as a display of God’s grace, wisdom and glory. Please respond right away.

God bless,

Pastor Bob Emrich, Maine Jeremiah Project
