“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.”
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
