This week I had the opportunity to speak to a wonderful organization of ladies who, while not Christian-based, have a tremendous desire to see the foundational principles of this country upheld for their children.
As I spoke of the mission of the Family Policy Alliance® to promote a state where God is honored, families thrive, life is cherished, and religious freedom flourishes, I was so encouraged to see the enthusiastic reception of these historic American Values.
After the speech, a luncheon was held, and a lady approached me to ask about a relative caught up in a same-sex lifestyle. There was obvious pain and confusion written across her face. She was caught in the crossfire between the love of a family member and the rhetoric from radical left leaning groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center who use their $500 million endowment ($120 million of which is housed in offshore accounts) to say that anyone who does not renounce their faith and endorse the radical message of the Sexual Revolution is a “hater and a “bigot.”
As my heart broke for this lady, I pointed out that the message of Christianity is one of truth and love. Those two words are not mutually exclusive. As a matter of fact, the Scriptures tell us in 1 Corinthians 13:5 that love… “rejoices in the truth.” Truth delivered from a heart of love is the most compelling force on Earth.
As I pointed this truth out to her and to a group of ladies who had gathered, the genuine care and desire to engage in honest and gracious dialogue began to flow throughout. I stepped back and watched a tableau of the dream our founders enshrined in the 1st Amendment play out before my eyes.
Amid a culture where a vocal and powerful group are doing everything they can to silence truth; when those who hold the truth are willing to stand up and express Biblical Citizenship, it brings healing to everyone willing to hear.
What you and I are standing for is indeed “Good News” and we must carry it out to a world that needs it.
Will you stand financially with the Family Policy Alliance as they start this amazing program in Wyoming? This is an opportunity to stand for truth in an unprecedented way in our state.
