An open letter to the legislators of Vermont:
There have been a number of letters published presenting various arguments against this abortion bill currently waiting to be voted on. It is likely that similar letters are being published in all the Vermont newspapers. In my heart, I doubt they will make you think enough to change the vote of those reading this who support this bill. Maybe what follows will.
God has placed you in the Legislature and is holding you accountable for every vote you record. He expects you to vote with justice and fairness and truth.
Everyone “worships” something. What is the hidden agenda behind your support for this bill? Each one of you has one. In earlier history, the Israelites lived in a culture full of pagan gods, one of which was Molech. Followers of Molech would burn their children to death as sacrifices to him. God called it an abomination. Are you worshiping a demon?
The true and living God will not be mocked and does not forget. The Bible says God formed you in the womb. Life begins at conception, so abortion is premeditated murder. You pass this bill and your names recorded in support will be signed with the blood of the innocent. From the day this bill is passed, God will hold each of you accountable for every abortion in Vermont that follows — their blood will be on your hands. Their cries as they are being butchered will rise to God and as martyrs; their cries will not be silenced. It is written that one day each one of us will stand before God and give an accounting of his life. Justice will be measured out to you with the same measure you used for others.
Follow the lead of one of your colleagues who withdrew his support for this bill. You don’t have to give “acceptable” reasons to anyone — just say no.
It is written that those who live by the sword die by the sword. You think your state is struggling now, pass this bill; you think you are exempt from punishment, pass this bill. God will not be mocked,
What will be the sign that what has been penned here is truth? This new “god” you are putting on the top of your State House — God will cover it with blood.
