Greear to be first SBC president to speak at March for Life
Southern Baptist Convention President J.D. Greear will join a lineup of speakers including Tim Tebow, Benjamin Watson and Jim Daly at the 48th annual March for Life Jan. 29 in Washington, D.C.
Greear will be the first SBC president to speak at the event. Other SBC leaders have addressed the crowd in the past, including Richard Land as president of the Christian Life Commission (now Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission) as well as Virginia pastor and former International Mission Board President David Platt.
â€śI am honored to be invited to this historic and important event,â€ť Greear said. â€śChristians are called to defend the vulnerable, and there are none more vulnerable than innocent children in the womb. Scripture says that each is fashioned in Godâ€™s image, for His purposes on earth. Jesus would welcome them each into His arms.â€ť...
Antifa is having a black pajama party if anyone wants to fly to Seattle this weekend. Come around 2am and watch beautiful fireworks, police vehicles torched and ordinary citizens get an old fashioned beat down. Hope Love and Peace.

Brother, I am not about to disagree with your points, which are perfectly valid, and would surely be useful in another argument.
But my whole argument is that behind all these marches is not the will of God or the Spirit of God, but the Ecumenical Movement, with which I will have no truck. Christians need to realise that joining together with churches which deny the gospel are opening up themselves to evil forces which are determined to destroy the gospel of Jesus Christ, by the simple method of watering it down until there is nothing left but water.

This is about taking a stand for the lives of the innocent and against murder, if you cannot find that warranted in Scripture, please go back and read your Bible again.
I disagree Bro US, I find no warrant for Christians to join with non-Christians or nominal Christians in order to enforce law on others or change minds (get people to repent of their sins). As I see it, that is going against God.
However, as a believer in freedom of speech, I am very glad you posted that, because you too believe in freedom of speech, and you exercised that right and posted what you did. And I encourage you to continue to do so, as it stimulates thought and may help others to arrive at the truth, whatever the truth is on a particular matter.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Chris GP, there won't be any problem for them to assemble as long as the Proud Boys and other neo-fascists don't decide to join in and bring in violence đź‘Ž
Romans 1:17 "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed,.... By "the righteousness of God", is not meant the essential righteousness of God, the rectitude of his nature, his righteousness in fulfilling his promises, and his punitive justice, which though revealed in the Gospel, yet not peculiar to it; nor the righteousness by which Christ himself is righteous, either as God, or as Mediator; but that righteousness which he wrought out by obeying the precepts, and bearing the penalty of the law in the room of his people, and by which they are justified in the sight of God: and this is called "the righteousness of God", in opposition to the righteousness of men: and because it justifies men in the sight of God; and because of the concern which Jehovah, Father, Son, and Spirit, have in it. Jehovah the Father sent his Son to work it out, and being wrought out, he approves and accepts of it, and imputes it to his elect: Jehovah the Son is the author of it by his obedience and death; and Jehovah the Spirit discovers it to sinners, works faith in them to lay hold upon it, and pronounces the sentence of justification by it in their consciences." John Gill
Whatever one may say of the â€śMarch for Lifeâ€ť, which could well be the last one permitted in the USA, if the Biden / Harris â€śGreat Resetâ€ť one party state dictatorship are able to get their fraud confirmed and take over in the White House in January 20th, J D Grear is the last person who should be addressing it anyway. Not only I gather is his church almost permanently closed because he has bought into the COVID 19 lies, but also he is fully â€śwokeâ€ť as I understand it, and supports Critical Race Theory, and is apparently even sympathetic to the Marxist occultist Black Lives Matter movement. Besides if Biden is inaugurated in the 20th January, and this march is on the 29th, it is surely going to be banned because of Bidenâ€™s national mask mandates and national lockdown, to take place immediately, according to Bidenâ€™s own statement, which is fully supported by the local mayor of Washington DC.
March for Life, March for Jesus, this sort of March, that sort of March, none of them has a biblical warrant, and the Lord observes the ecumenical participants who have not in mind any other thing than increasing the power of the Ecumenical Movement by getting nominal Christians to join together in a sort of united way, under a sort of common denominator, in which you are unlikely to find the gospel which tells sinners of their guilt before God, their destination of hell, and their need to repent of their sins and see in Jesus Christ a wonderful Saviour, willing and able to save them from the power and consequences of their sins, and give them a new birth and a new heart and a godly sorrow over their sins, which thing leads to repentance and a new direction in life, under the headship of the Lord Jesus, following him for the rest of their life, being preserved by the Spirit that they may persevere in the faith, all of which the Lord is praised and exalted for his great grace and mercy, showing that he is well able to make a sinner holy, and keep him holy in this dark world.
