No matter what you or I may think of our current president. No matter what his motives may be, the reality, the truth of his actions, speak much louder than words; even louder than tweets resounding day after day.


Although we have had other presidents who verbally and sometimes legally opposed abortion, none has approached the boldness and vigor of President Trump in the fight for life. God sometimes uses people for his purposes that we might scorn, deride and also just shake our heads at.


Do you remember the rhetoric in the 2016 election concerning the issue of abortion: Abortion is not an issue that will affect the presidential election. Then, in amazement at the last minute we elected a president who would push the issue to the limit. A most unlikely soldier of the Lord.


We shall see what the people choose: life or death. For me this is the deciding factor. Although you saw very little of the thousands of our youth who marched for life this year in media coverage, they are the new generation who survived the culture of death. Must be they want to live and also give life to the next generation.
