Those who love Jesus Christ are on their knees in a unique way during this pandemic with a renewed quest for His mercy — that He would spare our nation and our republic from ruin. Christ is front and center in the battleground state of Georgia.
The birth of Christ is the ultimate symbol that represents God’s love for humanity. That same love transcends ethnicity and color.
That transcendent love is not evident in the clash between two belief systems in Georgia: Christ and color. The false choice to follow Christ and protect life in the womb or pursue the narrative that Blacks are victims because of the color of our skin collide in the Georgia runoffs for the U.S. Senate. The two are not equivalents.
One Warnock radio ad says, in part, if you want to avoid being hunted daily on the streets, vote for Raphael Warnock on Jan. 5. (However, if you read that 13 unarmed Blacks were fatally shot by police in 2019, as opposed to the hundreds of thousands implied by the racial justice narrative, you may scratch your head that such a lie can still be told.)
The truth is that Mr. Warnock is the one doing the hunting. He is the remix of Margaret Sanger’s Negro Project. In her Negro Project, the Planned Parenthood founder, a racist and eugenicist, intended to exterminate Blacks. To do so, she used the Black preacher to rubber stamp the practice. A vote for Mr. Warnock is a vote for the New Negro Project.
On the other hand, “Abortion is the number one (1) cause of death in Black America.” Given this fact, you would think any candidate for public office holding a pro-abortion position would be rejected wholesale.
In Georgia, 63% of abortions are performed on Black women. I believe the 3,000 daily murders of unborn babies in America is evidence of the kind of unrighteousness God destroyed in Sodom and Gomorrah. And abortion is not without consequence.
Symptoms from abortion are many. They include promiscuity, suicidal ideation, alcoholism, anger, bitterness, grief, shame and drug abuse to name only a few. As a pastor of an abortion recovery ministry, I am aware that abortions poison our families and communities generationally.
Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are radical supporters of abortion on demand. They will partner to wipe out the image of God from the Earth that begins in the womb. The Bible is replete with God’s view and His heart for life in the womb bearing His own image.
Mr. Warnock proudly proclaims himself as a “pro-choice pastor.” He is clear and unashamed on his position against unborn children; likewise, the vote against him must be resounding.
In the election on Jan. 5, 2021, Georgia will determine whether the United States will capitulate and throw Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream in the trash and accept the idea that the whole of society must be treated based on the color of our skin and not on the content of our character. The left is determined to place the focus of our national policy on our skin color with no regard for values (character). This is the legacy of the Democratic Party — slavery, Black Codes, Jim Crow and the genocide of Black unborn babies.
Notwithstanding the previous horrors of racism inflicted on Blacks in America generally by Democrats, racism is not the salient issue for Blacks today. The most important issue for Blacks in America is faith in Jesus Christ and how that faith governs our lives. Blacks have lost our way as evidenced by having the highest rates of abortion in America.
If faith is not the focus for Georgian on Jan. 5, the runoff election will give way to codifying Roe v. Wade for all 50 states; to federally funding Planned Parenthood; and repealing the protections against taxpayer funded abortions.
The things of Christ must be placed above the divisive tool of color used by the left to divide us. King’s dream is on life support. We can either kill the dream or breathe life into it in this election by choosing life itself. Maybe then, God will extend mercy and our nation.
