I just heard an awesome Focus on the Family radio broadcast encouraging Christians to stand for life, marriage, and freedom by signing The Manhattan Declaration.
This declaration was written by Chuck Colson (Prison Fellowship Ministries) [and former presidential advisor for Nixon who went to prison for his involvement --a wonderful Christian since --author of Born Again --about when he came to faith as an adult.]
The other authors are Robert George (Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton) and Timothy George, Professor, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University.
It is an amazingly well-written statement defending the sanctity of life, the dignity of marriage, and the rights of conscience and religious liberty.
This is more than another petition or "add your name at the bottom" mass email. It is a call to Christians to stand for truth on these matters which are dear to God's heart, and which are vital to our country's well-being. It is time for Christians to wake up before the freedoms we hold dear are compromised, or lost altogether.
The web site is www.manhattandeclaration.org.
Notice the signers include liberal Christians like Ron Sider and conservative ones like Jim Dobson --and a wide array of other Christian leaders, including Catholics, Calvinists, Weslyans, etc.
Also, if you want to hear the Focus radio broadcast (very challenging and culturally relevant), you can go to www.focusonthefamily.com and follow the links to broadcasts and podcasts. The title of the broadcast was "A Manifesto for Righteousness," airing on Monday, November 23.
Blessings to you all!
