What's our Strategy?
It's not a secret. It's been said that the best defense is a good offense. There is a super majority legislature in Colorado that can do whatever they want, and we can wear ourselves out talking to them, because they aren't listening. (That's not to say that we shouldn't keep praying and talking to legislators.) The side of death can outspend and outwit us. The giant of the abortion industry has federal funds, the media in their back pocket, paid legislators defending them regardless of the facts, and a stronghold in Colorado paid by the blood of innocent children with the most brutal and inhumane abortionists on the planet!
And we are God's people with the mighty and powerful Name above All Names on our side, who is the King of kings and Lord of lords who says to us, "ask me". This is the Super Bowl of spiritual battles between the forces of darkness who thrive on the bloodshed of innocent children through child sacrifice and the followers of Jesus Christ who have within our ability to speak life into our culture and overcome the darkness. It's a simple choice, really, between life and death.
And there are plenty of examples we can learn from in the Bible. Nehemiah's approach to building the wall around Jerusalem was for everyone to take care of the wall that was right in front of them. Likewise, if every congregation and believer work on the wall of protection around the mothers and children within their own congregation and community, we would surround them with protection. We don't need to convince the prodeath people, only do our part with the people and influences God has placed in front of each of us.
God's approach to evil is to repent. He says to the woman caught in adultery, "Neither do I condemn you, now, go and sin no more." Today is the day of salvation. With one unified voice, we must speak the truth - the whole truth and nothing but the truth - about the realities of the humanity of our children in the womb, the brutality of dismembering and poisoning children before they can be born, and the hope we have in Christ for these children and their mothers to live productive, fulfilled, and joy-filled lives!
Colorado has more than 200 pregnancy care centers, churches, and adoption placement agencies available to help women and their children! We do not have to answer suffering with the further suffering and death of abortion! Because we know better, we can do better for women and children! Women and children deserve the compassion of our citizens for their protection in law.
The good news for incrementalists and abolitionists, alike, is that we need only 20% more churchgoers to vote for life for this initiative to pass in our state. This is a good law that anyone wanting to protect women and children will want to stand behind.
We are thankful for the help of many national and state organizations, and those working behind the scenes to help get the word out about this very important initiative. A special thanks to those who have provided legal and medical advice in the process.
We invite churches, organizations, and individuals across the state to unify on behalf of children. We invite anyone who would like to stop the killing of innocent children in Colorado to join us in prayer, petition, and helping others support this effort to protect all children so that every child can have a birthday. Our goal is to educate, encourage, and mobilize churchgoers to pray and vote for Life. Sixty-one percent of Coloradans attend church at least several times a year, so if we as God's people will disciple those entrusted to us as Jesus commands of His followers, we can speak life over Colorado.
For the moral and spiritual health of every woman, man, and child, let's defend "the least of these" among us. Because every child deserves a birthday, and every mother is worth protecting. Ask God how He would have you to be involved. We welcome you to the movement and the cause.
The gates of hell will not prevail. Gates don't move.
