God’s word doesn’t change for politicians

I am writing in response to “Elected GOP women OK with abortion right.”

Gator Williams referenced Matthew, Mark and Luke concerning children of an age that are able to walk, run, play, etc. but none are in the womb.

I would like to quote more of the Bible on children “in the womb.”

Job 31:15 speaking of God, said, “Did not he that made me in the womb make him? And did not one fashion us in the womb?”

Psalm 139:13 says, “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou has covered me in my mother’s womb.” Verse 14 states, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Verse 15, “My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest part of the earth.” Verse 16, “Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”

Psalm 22:9 says, “But thou art he that took me out of the womb...” Verse 10 says, “I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.”

Luke 1:41 states, “And it came to pass that, when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe  leaped in her womb.” Verse 44 said, “The babe leaped for joy! Concerning Jeremiah the prophet.”

Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and I ordained thee a prophet of the nations.”

God’s word doesn’t change just because 20 new female senators approve of abortion.

Read what Fayette school levy does

Just to clarify a point.

Fayette County Schools did feed all students for free last year, and it was a very popular and worthwhile program. The reason that it was not continued this year is that it cost the county over $660,000 in funds that we simply don’t have. It had nothing to do with parents filling out the meal application or anything that principals did or didn’t do.

It was a great program and much-needed in the county, so we looked for a funding source and put what the universal free meals program cost the county into the levy for the citizens to consider. Providing nutritious meals is important to the students in Fayette County Schools.

Citizens should read what the levy provides for our schools and students and then carefully consider what is in the best interests of the students of Fayette County.
