No, Mr. President

May 19, 2009

Have you seen the powerful media clip excerpted from one of John Piper’s recent sermons?  I deeply appreciate the respect shown for our President while at the same time offering earnest opposition to a grievous social evil promoted by our President.

Father, thank you for pastors who have thought so carefully and spoken so clearly about the pressing moral issues of our day.  Please strengthen John Piper as he sticks out his neck for the truth.  Forgive us, your church, for fearing controversy more than we fear you.  Deliver us from the prevailing, wimpy view of love that sees love as permissiveness rather than truthfulness.  Open the eyes of our President and our nation to see the wickedness of abortion.  Help us to value rightly all life made in your image, whether that life be a tiny embryo or a powerful politician with whom we disagree.  To you be the glory through Christ Jesus, Amen.
