In honor our of nation’s birthday, I think it is time to release the speech given at the Waskom City Council as they voted unanimously to make their city by resolution and ordinance a sanctuary city for the preborn. The resolution was solid. The ordinance fell short, but God’s truth keeps marching on in Jesus’ name!

There were times in our history as Americans where we went astray. We failed to live up to our own ideals.

Most notably in the days of slavery and later in the days of racial discrimination.

Men like Frederick Douglass would point out where we had missed the mark and would call our nation back to true faith and allegiance to God.

Typically, they would cite our founding documents as the plumb line to judge our national sins, which had brought national calamity. By God’s grace, I intend to follow their example.

In our Declaration, Almighty God is cited 4 times. He is acknowledged as law giver. Thomas Jefferson declared, “To the laws of nature and nature’s God.” This was the moral justification for our nation to break ties with England to become an independent nation amongst the nations of the earth.

Their appeal was to the Lord of Hosts and His higher law that is binding upon all men, in all nations, for all time. The lawgiver commands, “Thou shall not murder.” He did not give that command with a qualifier that implies unless the Supreme Court rules otherwise. Divine law trumps human law and any law that countermands God’s law is no law at all.

Second, Almighty God is acknowledged as our Creator. It is this self-evident truth that secured our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Roe vs. Wade revoked our national covenant with life and replaced it with a covenant of death. This has produced a culture of death that has savaged our people ever since.

What does the blessings of the freedom of speech, religion etc. mean to a dead baby? We have violated the preamble of our Constitution, which promised to secure liberty to ourselves and our posterity. If we do not grant life to our own sons and daughters, do we deserve it ourselves?

Third, the Declaration acknowledged Almighty God as the Supreme Judge of the earth. The Supreme Judge decreed, “Rescue those unjustly sentenced to death. Defend the poor and needy. Deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

Lastly, our Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor based upon Divine Providence. City Council here in Waskom TX, I would encourage you to do the same. Trusting in Divine Providence, rise up to end the injustice and suffering of the preborn and declare your independence as a sanctuary city for the least of these in Jesus’ name!
