PERSONHOOD ACT OF SOUTH CAROLINA AND SCRIPTURAL BASIS OF HUMAN LAWS

Dear Pro-Life, Pro-Personhood Christian,

There is a hymn in The Baptist Hymnal (© Copyright 1991) entitled “ God of Our Fathers” (#629). The first stanza starts with these words, “God of our fathers, whose almighty hand …”.  Then, halfway through the second stanza,

     “Be Thou our ruler, guardian, guide, and stay, Thy Word our law, Thy paths our chosen way.” [emph. added]

Author Daniel Roberts wrote this hymn in 1876 for a “Centennial” Fourth of July celebration.  In 1892 it was included in the Protestant Episcopal Hymnal, and now is published in 366 hymnals (source: Hymnary.org).

We may still sing this hymn, 142 years after it was written; but in an America of about 61 million children reported murdered by “abortion” since the 1973 Supreme Court Roe v. Wade Opinion, and in an America where sodomite “marriage” is considered “lawful” [sic] after the 2015 Supreme Court Obergefell Opinion, we do not live this hymn.

In America today as we enter 2019, is there a faithful remnant Christian people extant in this country who possess the knowledge, vision (spiritual, prophetic), faith, courage, and will to seek to re-establish the Bible, the Word of God, as the rule in our lives, our families, our churches, and our civil government, as did the early New England Puritan colonial founders in this land in the 1600’s ?  God says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:…” (Hosea 4:6, KJV).  In the Proverbs, knowledge is valued and seen worthy of pursuit; it is mentioned in 22 of the 31 chapters of Proverbs.  God says, “Where there is no vision (spiritual, prophetic), the people perish:” (Proverb 29:18, KJV); yet within American evangelicalism, the prophetic spirit is generally quenched, and the prophetic ministry often denied and rejected (1 Thessalonians 5:19, 20; Ephesians 4:11,12, KJV).  John the Baptist was called by the Son of God the greatest of prophets (Luke 7:26-28, KJV), and yet John the Baptist wrote not one word of the Scriptural canon (66 books of the Bible). The prophetic ministry, despite all the red herring and strawman arguments to the contrary, does not any longer include adding to the written text of Scripture.  The canon is closed. And the prophetic ministry does not only include foretelling, but most frequently today is manifested as forthtelling (e.g., preaching, and not just by pastors), as did John the Baptist (Matthew 14:3-5, KJV).  To preach the Word of God from the 66 books of the Bible is to prophesy, and the sword of the Spirit is unsheathed for its work when it is dutifully applied to the matter at hand, as did John the Baptist.  Furthermore, the Bible says, “But without faith it is impossible to please” God (Hebrews 11:6, KJV); and, “… with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26, KJV).  Do American Christians have the courage and will to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” ? (Jude v.3, KJV).  Yes, I believe so, and we do not need the defeatist, escapist, Jesuitical Futurists to discourage us ! Read Psalm 110:1, KJV; quoted in Matthew 22:44; Mark 12:36; Luke 20:42,43; Acts 2:34,35; Hebrews 10:12,13, KJV.

Do you know why the State of Connecticut is called “The Constitution State” ?  The first constitution written in America, adopted January 14, 1639, was The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, which stated in the Preamble:

For as much as it hath pleased Almighty God by the wise disposition of his divine providence so to order and dispose of things that we the Inhabitants and Residents of Windsor, Hartford and Wethersfield are now cohabiting and dwelling in and upon the River of Connectecotte and the lands thereunto adjoining; and well knowing where a people are gathered together the word of God requires that to maintain the peace and union of such a people there should be an orderly and decent Government established according to God, to order and dispose of the affairs of the people at all seasons as occasion shall require; do therefore associate and conjoin ourselves to be as one Public State or Commonwealth; and do for ourselves and our successors and such as shall be adjoined to us at any time hereafter, enter into Combination and Confederation together, to maintain and preserve the liberty and purity of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus which we now profess, as also, the discipline of the Churches, which according to the truth of the said Gospel is now practiced amongst us; as also in our civil affairs to be guided and governed according to such Laws, Rules, Orders and Decrees as shall be made, ordered, and decreed as followeth:”  [emphasis added]

Later in the same year, the Fundamental Agreement, or Original Constitution of the Colony of New Haven was adopted June 4, 1639, as a series of questions adopted in the affirmative by the assembled meeting, including:

Query I. WHETHER the scriptures do hold forth a perfect rule for the direction and government of all men in all duties which they are to perform to GOD and men, as well in families and commonwealth, as in matters of the church ?  (Agreed to unanimously by holding up of hands, no man dissenting).  [emphasis added]

Query II. WHEREAS … as in matters that concern the gathering and ordering of a church, so likewise in all public [offices] which concern civil order, as choice of magistrates and officers, making and repealing laws, dividing allotments of inheritance, and all things of like nature, we would all of us be ordered by those rules which the scripture holds forth to [us]; this covenant was called a plantation [civil] covenant, to distinguish it from a church covenant. (Agreed to unanimously by holding up of hands, no man dissenting).  [excerpt, emphasis added]

The two documents above ordering civil government are part of America’s Christian heritage.  It is a matter of the historical record.  There is much, much more.  Click on the No King but King Jesus ! link in the online version of this newsletter posted at the Christians for Personhood website [ http://christiansforpersonhood.com ] to see for yourself.

No King but King Jesus !  ( The Lord Jesus Christ )
Declarations and Evidences of Christian Faith in America’s Colonial Charters, State Constitutions, and other Historical Documents during over 375 Years of American History: 1606 to 1982

Christian, do you know why America has been a blessed nation on the earth in the past ?  Read Psalm 33:12; Proverb 14:34; Isaiah 33:22, KJV.  Do you know why America is already being judged and is approaching calamitous Judgment even now ?  Read Psalm 9:17, Deuteronomy chapter 28, and Leviticus chapter 26.  There are national, corporate blessings and cursings (judgments) upon nations for obeying and disobeying God and His Word, the Bible.

     America as founded was in great measure a fruit of the Christian Protestant ReformationThe Word of God set much of northern Europe free from the spiritual darkness and tyranny of Popery with the launch of the Reformation in 1517, restoring the Biblical Truth of Justification by Faith Alone.  Eventually and consequently, civil liberty improved among Reformation nations.  The Bible says, “…where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Corinth. 3:17, KJV).

Just as the Pilgrims (Reformed Puritan Separatist Christians) fled Europe to escape religious persecution, coming to America to seek religious liberty, so did many others.  They sought to establish a life based upon the Word of God ( The Bible ).  To the degree the Founding and Framing and following generations of America followed the Bible, this nation has been blessed.

  American Slavery was a gross exception, for which, without repentance, this nation was Divinely and calamitously judged with the War Between Americans, 1861-1865; much as America is again today in 2018, headed for a national bloodbath if we will not repent of the shedding of innocent blood by child-murder by “abortion” and rightly, truly, “ establish Justice” for all human beings. Furthermore, the ongoing incremental “regulation” of this gross national corporate sin of child-murder will not spare us from God’s Judgment, just as the “regulation” of the gross national corporate sin of American Slavery did not spare the nation from the “ terrible war” given by God to “ both North and South” and the attendant loss of 600,000 – 700,000 American lives in 1861-1865.

So how many Americans, including Christians, understand today, without the Christian Protestant Reformation, there would not have been the “America” which was Declared Independent in 1776; and whose Constitution was Signed in 1787, and Ratified in 1788, and Implemented in 1789; and in which the Individual Rights of American citizens are protected from the federal government by the Bill of Rights which was Ratified in 1791 !!!???

In the decade before the first shots of the American Revolution (War for American Independence) were fired on the green (common) at Lexington (Mass.) on April 19, 1775, English jurist William Blackstone published his four books of Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769).  “The Commentaries were long regarded as the leading work on the development of English law and played a role in the development of the American legal system.”  “The Commentaries are often quoted as the definitive pre- Revolutionary source of common law by United States courts.”  “For decades, a study of the Commentaries was required reading for all first year law students.”  Blackstone’s Commentaries were used before, and for approximately 100 years after, the American Revolution (1776-1783) to train lawyers in the United States, including at the University of South Carolina School of Law during part of the Reconstruction Era (1867-1877) after the USC Law School opened in 1867.

University of South Carolina Law School curriculum included Blackstone’s Commentaries at times during period 1867-1877:

USC Law School History: Reconstruction Era (1867-1877)  [excerpts, emphasis added]

The University of South Carolina School of Law was established as one of ten academic schools when South Carolina College was reorganized as the University of South Carolina in 1865 and 1866.  The Board of Trustees elected twenty-seven year old South Carolina attorney Alexander Cheves Haskell as the first professor of law and the law school opened on October 7, 1867. Professor Haskell developed his own system of leading the junior class through a course in Blackstone’s Commentaries and the senior class through a course on Stephens’ Pleading. … [ continued ]

 USC Law School History: Reconstruction Era (1867-1877)  [continued]

From the opening of the law school in October 1867 until the death of Professor Melton on December 4, 1875, classes were held in the University Library, now the South Caroliniana Library, and DeSaussure College. … The Board of Trustees chose Franklin J. Moses, Sr., the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of South Carolina, as Melton’s successor.  Under Moses the curriculum of the law school was modified to place a heavy emphasis on Blackstone’s Commentaries and Kent’s Lectures.

William Blackstone
Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769)

[ excerpts, emphasis added ]

INTRODUCTION
Sect. 2:  Of the Nature of Laws in General

“The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the holy scriptures.”

“Yet undoubtedly the revealed law is of infinitely more authenticity than that moral system, which is framed by ethical writers, and denominated the natural law. Because one is the law of nature, expressly declared so to be by God himself; the other is only what, by the assistance of human reason, we imagine to be that law. If we could be as certain of the latter as we are of the former, both would have an equal authority; but, till then, they can never be put in any competition together.”

“Upon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation, depend all human laws; that is to say, no human laws should be suffered to contradict these.”
________________________________________

In other words, Blackstone’s Commentaries, which were used before, and for 100 years after, the American Revolution (1776-1783) to train lawyers in the United States, said “all human laws” are to be consistent with the Word of God, the Bible !!!

[ Portion omitted ]

Illinois State Supreme Court  ( Richmond v. Moore, 1883 )
“… our laws and our institutions
must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise.  In this sense and to this extent, our civilizations and our institutions are emphatically Christian, …” [47 Am.Rep. 449]  [emphasis added]

___________________________________________

Just as the Word of God unsheathed, set free nations on the European Continent during the Reformation, so can the sword of the Spirit set America free as we enter 2019.  It is not “conservativism”, or the Republican Party (and certainly not the Democrat Party), or the Romish/ecumenical so-called “Pro-Life Movement” which will deliver America from the suicidal path we are on presently, of national calamity, financial collapse, destruction, and possibly the terrible divine recompense of a bloodbath for national sin as the nation experienced 1861-1865.

Especially we who are called by the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ must Repent and turn from our wicked ways. Then God will hear from heaven, forgive our sin, and heal our land.  We must Repent of not doing God’s work, in God’s way, according to God’s Word, for His Glory !  In the pro-life arena, these sins include unequal yoking with unbelievers and false religionists, and consequently, pursuing incremental “regulation” of child-murder instead of standing in faith and obedience upon the Word of God and striving for abolition and the establishment of justice now !

Christian, the whole purpose of this newsletter, is to affirm and impart what Blackstone wrote about 250 years ago in his Commentaries, which were used to train lawyers in America for 100 years, including right here in Columbia, South Carolina at the USC Law School; i.e., ALL human laws are to be founded upon either 1) “the law of revelation” (“the holy scriptures”, the Bible), and/or 2) “the law of nature” (God’s Law in Nature, not Romish so-called natural law).

“The committee convened to frame” the Fundamental Orders (Constitution) of Connecticut (1639) “was charged to make the laws:”
  As near the law of God as they can be.

[ William J. Federer, America’s God and Country Encyclopedia Of Quotations, 1994, p.177.]

So it is the Scriptures, the Bible, the Word of God, which is the authoritative and rightful source of human law.

For the Bible-believing Christian that truth corresponds well with his or her affirmation of the Bible as his or her own supreme, final authority.  The Bible is the supreme, final authority for the born-again Christian.

However, by definition, the Bible (66 books) is not the supreme, final authority for any other (false) religion, whether that false religion is Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Mormonism, Roman Catholicism, etc., etc.

As regards Roman Catholicism, the false Roman Catholic “bible” [sic] has 73 books, not 66 books, despite stern warnings in the Word of God not to add or subtract from God’s Word [ e.g., Revelation 22:18,19, KJV ].

Catechism of the [ Roman ] Catholic Church
# 138  The [ Roman Catholic ] Church accepts and venerates as inspired the 46 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New.  [ Note: The Christian Bible has 39 books in the Old Testament. ] [ comments added ]

Unlike as for Biblical Christianity, the Bible is not the supreme, final authority for Roman Catholicism.  Rome claims “Both Scripture and Tradition” as her authority, as interpreted by the Roman Catholic Church Hierarchy.

Catechism of the [ Roman ] Catholic Church
#82 As a result the [ Roman Catholic ] Church, to whom the transmission and interpretation of Revelation is entrusted [sic], does not derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone. Both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honoured with equal sentiments of devotion and reverence.” 44 [ comments, emphasis added ]

So how can professing Christians “yoke up” with followers of the false religion of Roman Catholicism when Roman Catholicism is NOT Biblical Christianity, and does not have the same Biblical supreme, final authority ? “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”  Amos 3:3, KJV.

Ans.: They cannot and be obedient to God and His Holy Word, e.g., 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 5:11-13, KJV.

Without the Bible (Exodus 20:13, Matthew 19:18, Amos 5:15, Psalm 89:14, Proverb 21:3, KJV) as Rome’s supreme, final authority, the Papacy legitimized supporting legislation to incrementally “regulate” child-murder:

Papal Legitimization of Incremental Child-Murder “Regulation” Legislation: EVANGELIUM VITAE ( “The Gospel of Life[sic] )
25 March 1995 | Roman Catholic Pope John Paul II papal encyclical

“A particular problem of conscience can arise in cases where a legislative vote would be decisive for the passage of a more restrictive law, aimed at limiting the number of authorized abortions, in place of a more permissive law already passed or ready to be voted on. … when it is not possible to overturn or completely abrogate a pro-abortion law, an elected official, whose absolute personal opposition to procured abortion was well known, could licitly support proposals aimed at limiting the harm done by such a law and at lessening its negative consequences … This does not in fact represent an illicit cooperation with an unjust law [ sic – False ! ], but rather a legitimate and proper attempt to limit its evil aspects.”  ( EV, #73.)  [ excerpt, emphasis added ]

America has fallen so far from her roots of 400 years ago in Christ and His Word; has so embraced Romish thinking (2 Corinthians 10:5, KJV); as to become captive to the unconstitutional plague of judicial supremacy, foolishly submitting to the tyranny of accepting Supreme Court Opinions ( !!! ) as the “supreme law of the land”, despite the fact any literate person can read Article VI, Cl 2 of the US Constitution and see that is not the case !!!

     The US Supreme Court has done to the US Constitution what the Roman Catholic Church Hierarchy has for centuries done to God’s Word, the Holy Bible: usurped, perverted, ignored, corrupted and rejected the authority of the written text for its own pronouncements:

The Christian Statesman – ‘For the Crown Rights of Jesus Christ’
Court Tradition, or the Constitution Alone?
November-December 2005  Vol. 148., No. 6, pp. 15-19.

“… the [ US ] Supreme Court became to the [ US ] Constitution what the Roman Catholic Church had become to the Bible.  Constitutionally speaking, there are few “Protestants” today.  Few believe in the doctrine of the [ US ] Constitution alone.  Few even know it exists.”  [ Excerpt. p. 15 ]

‘For the Murdered Unborn, Incrementalism is Not Justice’

Published by:

Incrementalism is Not Justice for the Murdered Unborn.  Incrementalism Perverts Justice and the Law.

Incrementalism is the Regulation of Child-Murder-by-“Abortion”.  Incrementalism is Evil.

In the Sixth Commandment, God says, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).” Exodus 20:13, KJV.  Jesus Christ says, “If ye love Me, keep My commandments.” John 14:15.  Establishing Justice is obedience to God.

“[God] hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” Micah 6:8, KJV.  The LORD requires of man to DO Justice,

Doing Justice is something that is “good” in the eyes of God.  For the Murdered Unborn, Incrementalism is Not Justice.

Therefore, in the eyes of God, Incrementalism is not “Good”.  Incrementalism is Evil.

God says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20, KJV.

“Justice and judgment are the habitation [foundation] of Thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before Thy face.” Psalm 89:14.  “… [R]ighteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne.” Psalm 97:2  “Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: …” Amos 5:15 (Zechariah 8:16), KJV.  “To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.” Proverb 21:3, KJV.  “… [T]hey shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; …” Genesis 18:19, KJV.

For a period of 100 years or so, Sir William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769) were used to train lawyers in America, beginning in the immediate pre-Revolutionary War Period, and lasting at least until the latter 1800’s, as was the case with the University of South Carolina Law School in Columbia (opened 1867).

In Blackstone’s Introduction, Section 2, “Of the Nature of Laws in General”  [ search http://lonang.com ], he wrote:

“Upon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation, depend all human laws;  that is to say, no human laws should be suffered to contradict these.”

Earlier on the same page Blackstone explained the source of “revealed or divine law” [ “the law of revelation” ]:

“The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the holy scriptures.”  [ That is, the Bible, the Word of God. ]
This is the original foundation of the American legal system, based upon God’s Laws of Nature [ Note: not the same as so-called “natural law” ], and God’s Revealed Law.  In other words, “all human laws” are to be consistent with the Word of God, the Bible !!!  Blackstone continued, using the specific example of murder, stating, “Nay, if any human law should allow or injoin us to commit it [ i.e., murder ], we are bound to transgress that human law, or else we must offend both the natural and the divine.”  Does not Incremental legislation such as the abominable 20-week, so-called “Pain Capable” legislation passed in S.C. in 2016 “allow” THE MURDER OF ALL CHILDREN UNDER 20 WEEKS !?

Does not this year’s Incremental legislation, the evil so-called “Dismemberment” bill, “allow” THE MURDER OF ALL CHILDREN BY SUCTION AND RU-486 AND OTHER CHEMICAL ABORTIFACIENTS !?  These bills, using the words of Sir William Blackstone, “offend both the natural and the divine.”  They are an offense to God.  Explicitly or implicitly, these evil bills call “Good” what God and wise Christian men of an earlier generation such as Blackstone, call “Evil”.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; …” Isaiah 5:20, KJV.

From 1973 to 2015, over 382,000 children are reported by DHEC to have been destroyed in their mother’s wombs in South Carolina.  The Incrementalists like to point out, look how many babies have been saved while numerous incremental bills have passed over the years ( over nearing the last 30 years ).  They point to the over 50% decrease in reported “abortions” in SC since the number peaked at over 14,000 in 1988.  However is the goal to “save babies”, or is the divinely established goal (Amos 5:15, KJV) to actually Establish Justice and END “child-murder-by-“abortion”?

From 1989 to 2015, nearing one-quarter Million children (over 224,000) have been murdered on South Carolina soil.

Even the United States Constitution’s Preamble identifies that document’s second purpose, is to “establish Justice”.

So we can continue to “save babies”, some through incremental legislation, and some by pregnancy care centers, and some by sidewalk counselling, and some by numerous other means, but the cup of wrath of the judgment of God continues to fill as the innocent bloodshed continues, and those with eyes to see know we are already experiencing God’s ongoing warnings of remedial judgments in S.C. and America (e.g., 9-11-2001, Great Recession, 2015 Flood). Who knows when national calamity may come in the form of another national bloodbath, whether by our own hands, as was experienced 1861-1865 for the national sin of un-Biblical American Slavery (which cost at least over 600,000 American lives, North and South), or by foreign invaders (e,g., China, Russia, Iran, Islamic terrorists ?), or both ?

Slavery Abolitionist, editor, William Lloyd Garrison asked rhetorically, “… Has not the experience of two centuries shown that gradualism in theory is perpetuity in practice?”  The 1860 Republican Party Platform protected Slavery in the Slave States, while opposing expansion of Slavery in the western Territories.  We know now such “gradualism” was insufficient to stay God’s Hand of Judgment upon America as He gave that “terrible war” “to both North and South” (President Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865).  Applying Garrison’s admonition against gradualism to today’s national sin of child-murder, “Has not the experience of over 44 years shown that incrementalism in theory is the perpetuation of child-murder in practice?”  Incrementalism is perpetuating “abortion”.  It is well past time to END it.

Jesus says, “THOU SHALT DO NO MURDER” ( Matthew 19:18, KJV ).  Establish Justice Now !!!

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

 ‘CORPORATE BLOODGUILT AND REPENTANCE’

Published by:

Columbia Christians for Life

P.O. Box 12222, Columbia, S.C. 29211 * CCL@spiritcom.net * www.ChristianLifeandLiberty.net

“… I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18

Repentance for America’s Bloodguilt Worship Service

Saturday, January 21, 2017, 12 noon

First Floor Lobby, State House, Columbia, SC 

‘CORPORATE BLOODGUILT AND REPENTANCE’

This message is about Corporate Bloodguilt and Repentance.  Over the last 44 years, it is reported that over 59 Million children in the womb have been killed by the government-protected sin and crime of child-murder-by-“abortion”.  However, regardless of what human governments sanction, God has already spoken, even writing in stone with His own finger, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).”  Exodus 20:13, KJV.  God’s Law is, always has been, and always will be, Higher than Man’s Law.  Acts 5:29, KJV says, “We ought to obey God rather than men.”  The Lord Jesus Christ says in Matthew 4:4, KJV, “MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.”  God’s Word is for all men, for all nations, for all time.  It is error to say God’s Moral Law was only for ancient Israel.

Indeed, Proverb 14:34, KJV says, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”  Psalm 9:17, KJV says, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”  When it comes to the shedding of the innocent blood of Millions of children in their mothers’ wombs, America stands guilty before God.  Is that not true?

So, does the Bible give us any examples of individual or corporate repentance for the corporate sins of their land?  Yes it does.  I will briefly share two examples: 1) Nineveh at the preaching of Jonah; and 2) Daniel praying while in Persia.

First, Jonah 3:1-10, KJV, preaching to Assyria’s capital Nineveh sometime around 760 BC.  [Read Scripture.]

So at the preaching of the prophet Jonah, the people of Nineveh, from the greatest to the least, repented and reformed.

The Bible says “God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way” and so God did not bring judgment upon them.

Corporate repentance, and corporate reformation, resulted in corporate deliverance from the corporate judgment of God.

Second, Daniel 9:1-8, KJV, in Persia, approx. 539 BC, in the first year of king Darius.  [Read Scripture.]

So Daniel, taken captive as a youth in 605 BC upon the invasion of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, is praying to God approx. 66 years later, expressing repentance for the corporate sin of his people and leaders which led to the Babylonian Captivity of Judah from three attacks, 605 BC, 597 BC, and 586 BC.  Will we follow Daniel’s example?

South Carolina is a State with 1000’s of churches, and 100,000’s of professing Christians, but which has murdered over 382,000 children in their mothers’ wombs 1973-2015.  In 2015, South Carolina’s bloodguilt was further documented.

On September 30, 2015, an Ad Hoc Committee of the SC House Legislative Oversight Committee met on State House grounds, and held its first hearing on the connections between certain SC State agencies such as HHS, which administers Medicaid, and Planned Parenthood and other “abortion” “providers” [sic] as they were called.  First let me say, “abortion” is child-murder, and child-murder is not “provided”, it is perpetrated.  Murder is not provided, it is committed.  Using such bureaucratic language, the HHS director under SC Governor Haley described to the SC Representatives on the Ad Hoc Committee the number of children which had been murdered using SC taxpayer Medicaid money.  His most often used bureaucratic term describing the “aborting” mothers, was “beneficiaries”.  In other words, the mothers were so-called “beneficiaries” [sic] of Medicaid money to pay for the murder of their own sons and daughters.  Although the initially reported number of children murdered was later decreased from 222 to 29, FY 2011-2015, even one murder is too many.

This hearing was reported in the press.  Undercover videos had been released beginning in July 2015 which were widely publicized, exposing certain Planned Parenthood officials outside SC trafficking in body parts of “aborted” babies. At SC Governor Haley’s request in August, DHEC inspected SC’s three “abortion” centers.  On September 11, DHEC suspended the licenses of both Columbia’s Planned Parenthood and Greenville’s “abortion” center for multiple violations, including disposing of bodies of “aborted” babies in a landfill, instead of incinerating or burying them.  The deadline for corrective plans and fine payments was September 28.  Each “abortion” center sufficiently responded to DHEC’s Order  regulating the murder of pre-birth children, such that neither child-murder center was shutdown on September 28 or later.

More evidence could be provided of SC’s bloodguilt, such as the nearly $300,000 Medicaid funding given to Planned Parenthood, largely for birth control, much of which is abortifacient, from FY2011-2015.  God hears the cry of the voice of the shed innocent blood of these murdered children.  In Genesis 4:10, KJV after Cain slew righteous Abel, God said, “What hast thou done? The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.”  So the legislative hearing which further publicly exposed and documented our corporate bloodguilt as a State, occurred September 30, 2015.  That was a Wednesday.  The next day, Thursday, October 1, 2015, the rains began.  That evening Governor Haley declared a State of Emergency in SC, and over the five days of October 1 – October 5 came the flooding, deaths, and destruction of what we now know as the Great Flood of October 2015.  I believe God judged South Carolina.

The Planned Parenthood child-murder center is located just about one-half mile outside the border of Forest Acres, which with the breeching of multiple dams, was the location of some of the worst flooding and destruction in the State.

It was learned months later the number of “abortions” at Planned Parenthood went up by over 300 in 2015, causing the entire State to report an increase, even though the child-murder centers in Greenville and Charleston reported decreases.

Am I able to prove a spiritual connection between corporate bloodguilt and the 1,000-Year Flood which devastated this State, costing 19 lives, and billions of dollars in damage, some of which remains to this day?  No, I cannot prove it.  However I can tell you God is not mocked, that whatsoever a man, or City, or State, or Nation sows, that shall that man, or City, or State, or Nation also reap.  I can tell you the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the fear of the LORD is to hate evil.  And I can tell you, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”  Hebrews 10:31, KJV.

Corporate Bloodguilt calls for Repentance.  It is the primary reason for which we are gathered here today.

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

Subject:  Letter to the Editor / Opinion Editorial

From:  Steve Lefemine, November 12, 2016 / Edited, Revised November 14, 2016

‘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 www.Congress.gov) 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 www.SCStateHouse.gov) 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) !!!

PASS PERSONHOOD NOW !!!

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