Manhattan Declaration

Dear friends in Christ,

Recently the Manhattan Declaration went public. This is a declaration of Judeo-Christian beliefs, stating the ideals of religious liberty, defense of life, and defense of traditional marriage as ideals for which we should fight. This is an affirmation of biblical truths that we, as an American people, should take to heart.

The United States was built on the basis of Judeo-Christian beliefs, and yet at this point in the history of this great country, we have a society and an administration that completely ignores our past, a society that ignores God and His precepts, and a society and administration that disregards human life, and is more concerned about the pushing an extremist agenda that says that it is already for two homosexual men to get married, that says that slaughtering the unborn as a women's right.

This Manhattan Declaration is an affirmation of the reality of biblical truths: that all men are created equal (they weren't born equal, but rather created equal), that marriage is for a man and a woman, and that God is the creator of all, no matter how much we try to ignore him.

The time has come for Christians in the United States to be united in the fight for our society, a society of death and indifference. A society where God is cast to the side, as much as the unborn are cast to the side. A society which ignores the lessons of the Old Testament and says that sodomy is not only OK and tolerated, but we will recognize it as a legitimate marriage.

It is time to pray for our country, and it is a time to resist the attacks of the secular forces that seek to implicitly destroy our country from within. We need to tell our friends about the declaration; we need to sign the declaration and be in unity with the other 245,000+ people who have already signed it. We need to take a stand for life, not only in front of the abortion clinic, but also in front of our congressmen. We need to take a stand, saying that marriage is between a man and a woman. We need to say "In God we trust", and he will not lead us astray.

It is no coincidence that our society is going down the tubes when we have removed God from every aspect of public life. We need to act locally and fight for the rights which many men and women before us have died for. We need to do it for George Washington, for Abraham Lincoln, for those thousands of soldiers who have died in combat, defending this country from tyranny. We need to do it for the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan; we need to do it for the victims of 9/11/2001. We need to do it for ourselves, so that our kids and their kids can enjoy an America under God, with liberty and justice for all. May God bless us, and may we take a stand and fight for liberty for all, and justice for all!
