The President of the United States
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
This past month you were installed as the 42nd president of the United States of America. You have been given the privilege from God to preside over the most powerful nation on the earth, an honorable and accountable position.
During the past week, I heard that you refer to yourself as a Christian. In all humility, Mr. President, I ask you what you mean by Christian? Do you mean a nice man who is friendly to others or do you mean a follower of Christ? A Christian receives this name by others because they see that this man or woman follows Christ. A Christian imitates the life of Christ. A Christian studies what Christ says and reveals in His Word, the Bible. A Christian has a life of dedication to the One who came to this earth and died for all His people. A Christian lives a life of thankfulness to Christ for saving His people from all their sins.
In the first several days of your term, Mr. President, you have endorsed the murder of innocent young lives while they are yet in the womb. This was done by your direct speech in favor of abortion, the right of a mother to choose, and by signing legislation making abortion in some cases even easier to obtain than was possible in the past.
God tells us directly in the Bible, Mr. President, that the taking of an innocent life is wrong. Human life starts at conception. Conception in the womb is not a scientific fact but a miracle. God tells Jeremiah in Jer. 1:5a “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou earnest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee” and also tells Isaiah, in Isaiah 49:lb “The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.” God causes conception and it is then that He refers to that person by name.
It is with deep humility that I show you that abortion is in direct disregard of God’s Word. I beg you to hear God’s command to repent in Acts 3:19 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”.
