Sign the Manhattan Declaration

August 6, 2010

Manhattan Declaration



A Call of Christian Conscience: "We pledge to each other, and to our fellow believers, that no power on earth, be it cultural or political, will intimidate us into silence or acquiescence. It is our duty to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in its fullness, both in season and out of season. May God help us not to fail in that duty."

Are we Christians ready for simple, yet costly grace? "Like those who have gone before us in the faith, Christians today are called to proclaim the Gospel of costly grace, to protect the intrinsic dignity of the human person and to stand for the common good."

The quotes above come from the Manhattan Declaration, an online declaration which is available for anyone to read and sign.  A group of prominent Christian clergy, ministry leaders, and scholars released the Manhattan Declaration on November 20, 2009 at a press conference in Washington, DC. The 4,700-word declaration speaks in defense of the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and religious liberty. It issues a clarion call to Christians to adhere firmly to their convictions in these three areas.

ACTION: Please read and sign the Declaration. Speak out along with hundreds of thousands of others. And encourage your pastor to sign!

yes, we need to engage with the arts, even the ones we don't like, beucase the world around us is engaged with the various mediums that the creative brain finds to express itself how do we do so? i try to go with an open mind (no, you don't have to like it, but if you are open to new expressions, you might have an opportunity to talk about God-stuff, an opportunity you might not have if you walk up with a judgmental attitude). I ask God to show me something beautiful and/or good in the work and choose to praise Him for what He shows me. I sat in a crowded jazz bar in San Francisco this past weekend and listened to music that's not my favorite and choosec to pray for those around me that seemed in need of a desperate touch from a loving God and give thanks for a couple (enjoying the same band with friends/family) who had entered into a commitment of marriage that same day in a world that doesn't really value the institute of marriage. Plus, I was able to continue to spend some quality time with one of my favorite people

Let us who unite together in the body of Jesus Christ, stand tall, never wavering, allowing the Holy Spirit to bring together His Sheep! Let the Joy the Lord has blessed us with unite us throughout the nations, to do the will of the Almighty God and the King of Kings Jesus Christ!

Thanks for the comment, Jeremy. The second part of Mark 13:13 is "...but he who stands firm to the end will be saved." ---Editor

Mark 13:13 All men will hate you because of me.... A sign of how hard our own hearts are is revealed in how we respond in these times... Jeremy UK
