A post-Roe open letter to Indiana’s civic leaders

Indiana Statehouse

To our civil leaders in the State of Indiana, including Governor Holcomb and our state legislators:

The Lord Jesus Christ has charged you with the responsibility of upholding justice as defined by God (Rom. 13:1-4). This includes defending the innocent and the defenseless, such as unborn children. Abortion is murder, the taking of an innocent human life, which begins at conception.

Therefore, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon you to be wise, to fear the Lord, and to ban abortion in the State of Indiana.

You must treat it as murder.

We understand that there is great political pressure from both sides of this debate. Whatever you decide, men will be displeased with you. Thus, we exhort you to take refuge in Christ and be blessed. Honor the Lord and entrust yourself to Him. Fear God, not man. What will you gain if you kindle Christ’s wrath against you?

If you honor Christ and defend the unborn, we will stand with you. If you do not, then we will pray for both your repentance and your removal from office.

Signed,
The elders of Trinity Evangelical Church
Larwill, Indiana
