FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Stephenson for U.S. Senator for
Issue One: Abortion
will be posting on our developing websites, my position statements with regard
to several pressing issues confronting our nation and the citizens of
Abortion and Our Moral Compass:
Our nation and our Commonwealth will continue to be “plagued with ills” unless we first stop the atrocity of abortion and the infanticide that occurs daily, permitted “by law”. Historically, nations that walked away from God and behaved godlessly would soon discover that God would remove Himself from that nation. Is that fact any different today? No. How can God bless a nation who is behaving in ways that are against His will? Not only will God not bless the nation, He cannot bless a nation who blatantly commits such heinous crimes. In fact, according to Deuteronomy 28, God makes it very clear that if a nation keeps God’s commands, God in turn will bless that nation. Deut. 28: 1-3 says, “...if you will diligently obey the Lord your God being careful to do all His commandments...the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth..Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the country.” In turn, if a nation disobeys God commands, “...if you will not obey the Lord your God, observe His commandments… all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you…” vs. 15-68. There are fifty three verses of consequences for being out of God’s will. I would encourage everyone to read the entire chapter of Deuteronomy 28. These are not my words, these are God’s words and whether our nation wants to believe in God or not, or “choose” to believe in His commands or not, does not change the truth that God is and He does. We will not be a great nation again unless God is at the helm again.
Consider the circumstances of our nation today. Not one politician or political party can singularly be blamed for the current condition of our nation. Our nation “collectively” is responsible. Every citizen who “chooses” not to believe God and His commands is responsible. Tragically, abortion has been made law, but by man, a law that completely contradicts the law of God, “You shall not murder”. Deut. 5:17. As a nation, we must recognize abortion for what it is, the murder of innocent lives. The framers of our Constitution were more in touch with the will God then this nation as a whole is today. Many God-fearing groups continue to fight vigorously against a current that cannot be stopped, unless we turn this nation around and seek God’s face. The fact that centuries have come and gone since we have became “one nation under God” does not remove the reality that God does not change, nor His will. God will bless our nation again. He can bring healing and will bring “healing” to our land IF we seek His face and stop the atrocities of abortion. God can and He will use elected officials to bring real solutions, not perpetual sound bytes, not fruitless efforts and not disharmony among the political parties. Our nation, our citizens must begin to see this, and NOW.
people die each day in the world. According to Right to Life statistics, “over
4,000 of those deaths are by abortion. That is one and half million people each
year in the
It has become abundantly clear that the very fabric of our moral system has been slowly and deliberately excised from our schools, text books, and government facilities while we, the citizens, have stood, by since the mid-1970’s, and watched a rebellious minority bring our democracy into this destructive state and condition, completely out of God’s will. We, the majority of our citizens, can be compared to a frog that has been slowly cooked. It has been told that if one places a frog in boiling water it will naturally jump out. However, if a frog is placed in cool water and the water is gradually heated to boiling, the frog will sit there until he is “cooked”. I am telling you, that God is telling me, and many other Christians, that we must reach the hearts of our fellow citizens and our government leaders and demand that they obey God’s laws.
Our children and grandchildren are bombarded with pornography, filth and degradation under the protection of “free speech”. At the same time we have witnessed prayer being removed from our schools, the Ten Commandments and the Christian history of our nation being challenged. Some of the original evils that God warns us to be aware of in our human nature are greed, envy, and covetousness. We have allowed ourselves to be exploited to the point where our institutions of trust have become untrustworthy.
If elected, I want to work with
President Obama to establish regulations to protect consumers, safeguards to
our economy and provide “meaningful” accountability for our governmental
systems and institutions regulated by government. As a real estate broker of
thirty plus years and a former chairman of a teacher’s credit union, I can
bring expertise to the regulatory system. I have solicited no organizations or
corporations for contributions. Therefore, I can and will be the voice for the
“everyday” man and woman in
