Pray for Tennessee Legislation Concerning Unborn Babies

This week, the Tennessee Senate’s Judiciary Committee heard two days of testimony on the fetal heartbeat bill passed by the House last spring. Many citizens responded to the hearings by contacting the committee members, urging them to recommend to their Senate colleagues the rewritten version of the House bill.

But they can’t do that until the legislature reconvenes in January. Then the committee can decide whether to recommend the bill to the full Senate or suggest a different bill. When that time comes, the voices of pro-life Tennesseans will need to be heard again.

If you want to know what you can do now, please pray that the members of this committee will have the information, wisdom, and courage they need to make sure the Volunteer State does its part to protect the unborn from conception to live birth.

Taking on the Abortion Giant

Next week the Tennessee Senate’s Judiciary Committee will hear testimony on a “fetal heartbeat” bill. The focus will be the bill’s constitutionality. Under the precedent of Roe v. Wade, the answer is clearly no.

But Roe’s constitutional reasoning has been sharply criticized from the beginning by liberal and conservative lawyers. Surprisingly, in 46 years, no state has passed a bill that directly attacks Roe’s foundations. For 46 years, the Court has not been forced to reexamine Roe’s reasoning.

So, the real question these senators must answer is whether it’s time to stop cowering before the U.S. Supreme Court by attacking Roe in roundabout ways and pass a bill that forces the issue. Roe seems like a giant to overcome, but God has used His people to slay giants before. It’s time we take on the giant.

What’s With the Minimum Wage?

What is the real deal in the fight between U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Rashida Tlaib over how the minimum wage should go?

It’s not just money. What they really question is whether our governmental system that allows for free enterprise has run its course and new structures are needed for American society.

But, biblically, the problem isn’t free enterprise; it is lack of contentment. And this is an issue of the heart that no law can remedy. Paul put the remedy this way in 1 Timothy 6:6, “Godliness with contentment is great gain.”

True godliness brings contentment, and here is a wealth that satisfies. As Solomon said, “Those who attain to such wisdom will find it better than rubies, and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.”

Why Ban Online Ministers?

Attorneys in Tennessee are having a hard time convincing a federal judge that Tennessee’s new law banning ministers with online ordinations from solemnizing marriage is constitutional.

To be constitutional, the state must prove some rational basis for the ban. And though many think online ordinations are not real compared to the credentials provided by recognized religions like Christianity, Islam, or Judaism, the judge says the state has not provided a good reason for the ban.

But how can there be? According to the U.S. Supreme Court, marriage is just a social construct we make up instead of a real thing. But if marriage is a made-up thing, why can’t the qualifications for ministers officiating a marriage be a made-up thing, too? As Francis Schaeffer said, when we remove God from our thinking, we eliminate the basis for human rationality.

America’s Choice: Compulsion or a ‘New Birth of Freedom’?

With today’s talk about socialism and the use of so-called “non-discrimination” laws to compel interactions in commerce and even within organizations, you can’t help but see a future America that is rife with legal compulsion.

You also can’t help but think of Abraham Lincoln’s resolve expressed at Gettysburg that “this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

But did you know that more than four hundred years earlier protestant reformer John Wycliffe said much the same: “The Bible is for the government of the people, by the people and for the people”?

The point is this: Compulsion will define our future unless there is a new birth of liberty under God in America.
