Dear friends,

Biblical morality is taking another beating. Forty years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court set aside the sanctity of human life in favor of freedom and equality. Today, that same body is poised to abandon the sanctity of marriage for the same reasons.

While upholding marriage wouldn’t seem to be a top priority for Life Matters Worldwide, it’s really impossible to separate it from what we do in defense of life. Strong marriages between one man and one woman for life are God’s design for raising children. 

All over the world we see the effects of abandoning biblical principles: promiscuity, adultery, divorce, abuse of women, sex slavery, sexually transmitted infections, neglected children, and so on. Where is freedom and equality? These effects look more like bondage and fear.

There’s a lot to be done. People need to hear that salvation in Christ is the source of true freedom and equality (Colossians 3:9-11). They need to be taught the full counsel of God’s word, no matter which way the world is going. Read more in "Are the foundations crumbling?"

The pro-life ethic is rooted in Genesis and propelled by the Gospel. It’s our mission to articulate that ethic in word and deed. Thank you for your donations that make this all possible.

Carrying forth the Name,

Tom Lothamer, president
