“Those standing behind the Personhood Bill are coming from a Biblical perspective …”
“Those of us who believe the Personhood Bill should be promoted do so because we believe God will honor His Word when His people step out in faith.”
Proverbs 24:11-12


Dear Editor,

Many may be confused (pastors included) about the differences between the Personhood Bill and the Dismemberment Bill being presented before the SC Senate – why one should take priority over the other.

One of the main differences is WHO is supporting each of the bills. Those standing behind the Personhood Bill are coming from a Biblical  perspective while those who represent the Dismemberment Bill (NRL – National Right to Life & SCCL – South Carolina Citizens for Life) are coming from a political perspective.

Some in the NRL may be Christians but almost all backing the Personhood Bill are primarily Bible-based Christians. Some in the NRL consider their ways, in my opinion, more “intellectual” than merely relying on God’s Word as a basis for action.

Those of us who believe the Personhood Bill should be promoted do so because we believe God will honor His Word when His people step out in faith. God honored Joshua and Caleb’s faith when the other spies thought they would fail if they confronted the “giants” in Canaan.

Abortion is the giant in our land today. But God is the same today as He was thousands of years ago. Let us be bold and confident in our Lord who will go before us if we proceed in faith.

Please, pray for the presentation and passage of the Personhood Bill (S217).

“If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth he not know it? and shall he render to every man according to his works?” Proverbs 24: 11-12

‘GOD Has Shown US Great MERCY…What Will We Do with the OPPORTUNITY?’

‘GOD Has Shown US Great MERCY…What Will We Do with the OPPORTUNITY?’

The 2016 Presidential Election is over. The transition has begun.  The Trump Inauguration is January 20, 2017.

GOD Has Shown US Great MERCY.  “Mercy” is when we are not given what we would be rightly judged to receive.

For our national sin of 43+ years of government-protected-and-funded child-murder-by-“abortion” alone, a just and righteous Divine Judgment visited upon the nation corporately, as revealed in Scripture, is for the LORD to give this people “into the hand of the heathen”, such that “they that hated them ruled over them”, and such that “[t]heir enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.” (Psalm 106:37-42, KJV).

In a word, such a wicked, bloody people will be given over, by God Himself, to TYRANNY.  On the eve of Tuesday, November 8, we were looking into the face of an even greater level of tyranny than we are already under – make no mistake – we are already under Divine Judgment for the unrecompensed shedding of innocent blood of 59+ Million (reported) pre-birth children.  Many Christians rightly feared what further oppression might ensue if Jezebel was given the reins of presidential power in the White House.  Many Christians cried out to God for mercy, praying and fasting.  By 3 am or so early Wednesday morning, with the State of Pennsylvania decided, the news came: GOD Had Indeed Shown US Great MERCY.  Now the question is, especially for born-again Christians (Matthew 5:13-16; Matthew 28:18-20, KJV), What Will We Do with the Opportunity?  This Opportunity is also a Responsibility.  Will we truly Repent of our national sin of government-protected-and-funded child-murder-by-“abortion” – and the national corporate bloodguiltiness which is in our midst? (Nehemiah 1:4-11; Daniel 9:3-19; Numbers 35:1,33; Deuteronomy 21:7-9, KJV).

In addition to the US Presidency, Republicans also control the US House and the US Senate.  All three law-making components of the US Federal Government will be in Republican hands by January 20, 2017.  There is NO EXCUSE for the US Congress not to hold House and Senate Judiciary Committee Hearings to pass principled Personhood Bills (such as HR 426 in the current 114th Congress, or if necessary to overthrow US Supreme Court oath-breaking judicial activism and tyranny, HR 2761 – see to establish Justice (as Preamble of the US Constitution purposes) for pre-birth human beings; recognizing the God-given, unalienable right to life of every human being as a person, at fertilization, in law, and without “exception”; because God says, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).” Exodus 20:13, KJV.  Senate Republicans will have 51 or 52 seats, although current Senate Rules require 60 votes to stop a filibuster.

Concurrently, States’ Personhood Bills such as South Carolina’s 2015-2016 Personhood Constitutional Amendment (S.719, H.4093 – see and/or such as South Carolina’s 2013-2014 Personhood Act (S.457) must also continue to be pursued [ History of Personhood Legislation in South Carolina ( 1998 – 2016 ) ].

The Bible says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: …” (Proverb 29:18, KJV).  We Christians need the spiritual and prophetic vision to call for the establishment of Justice, and the END of child-murder-by-“abortion”, now !

We Christians need the faith, vision, courage, obedience, knowledge, wisdom, and will; to go forth in Christ’s Name (Colossians 3:17, KJV), to do His Work (Proverb 24:10-12; Proverb 31:8,9; Psalm 82:3,4; Isaiah 1:16,17; Amos 5:15; Matthew 22:37-39; Luke 10:29-37; Matthew 25:31-46; James 1:27, KJV), in His Way (John 14:6; Psalm 89:14; Psalm 97:2; Proverb 8:13, KJV), according to His Word (Matthew 4:4; Proverb 14:34; Psalm 9:17; 2 Samuel 23:3; Romans 13:1-4; 1 Peter 2:14; Psalm 33:12, KJV), for His Glory (1 Corinthians 10:31; Isaiah 48:11; Isaiah 42:8, KJV) !!!


The Lord Jesus Christ is “the King of kings, and Lord of lords”, now !  ( 1 Timothy 6:15, KJV ),
