§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

II Timothy 2:14 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Primal Words.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Bring all this to men’s remembrances, solemnly charging them in the presence of God not to waste time in wrangling about mere words, a course which is altogether unprofitable and tends only to the ruin of the hearers.”  WNT (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 

Potay-to or Potah-to?  Which is it?  How about “spuds”?  How about fries; how about twice-baked; how about mashed with lots of milk and butter? 

How about sweet?  How about well . . . rotten?  We can think of the common potato in so many ways.  Whether it’s sweet potah-to or mashed potay-toes, we all know what is meant.  Even spuds.  We know what spuds are:  potay/tah-toes.  Well, we all know what we mean.

When it comes to being non-argumentative about words, we sometimes have to overlook something we think is irregular in usage or something that we think could be worded better . . . Such as:  the old story about “I saw an elephant in my dad’s pajamas” or “My dad saw an elephant in his pajamas” or “An elephant saw my dad in his pajamas . . . “ (just joking – this would have to occur either in the jungle or at a zoo – and it’s unlikely that the elephant would have on pajamas or that one would see Dad there in pajamas . . . . ).  But we can see how language can become very confusing.

If someone in candlelight days would ask, “Did you put out the light?” it could be construed as did you snuff out a candle . . . or did you set a candle or lantern out on the porch for some expected guest.  And even in the Bible there are discussions about how a phrase is to be “turned,” sometimes sending us back to the Greek or Aramaic to figure it out.

It is some of these differences that create needs for panels of scholars to interpret scriptural evidence when new translation is being coined.  But there is One True Thing in a Word:  Jesus.  God loved the world; He loves us; He sent His Son Jesus to provide salvation via His death and our faith.  If we agree to these basic-premise words, then arguing ceases.  This is primal.  We don’t argue these.  Whatever the language or the context in usage, the facts remain about Jesus and our relationship with Him.  Lord, let us pivot our lives on this.  Let us put these words, as they are, down as a stake never to be pulled.  We just don’t argue about this kind of LIFE.

Topics:  Pray for great understanding of the meaning of the words of LIFE in Christ, and also pray to help others understand them and apply them to their hearts and lives.  Because of this, we pray that more babies will be able to survive in Mother’s womb and be born to understand this too.
Mayors in cities all across America.  May they be for created LIFE.
