Sign the Manhattan Declaration
A Call of Christian Conscience: "We pledge to each other, and to our fellow believers, that no power on earth, be it cultural or political, will intimidate us into silence or acquiescence. It is our duty to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in its fullness, both in season and out of season. May God help us not to fail in that duty."
Are we Christians ready for simple, yet costly grace? "Like those who have gone before us in the faith, Christians today are called to proclaim the Gospel of costly grace, to protect the intrinsic dignity of the human person and to stand for the common good."
The quotes above come from the Manhattan Declaration, an online declaration which is available for anyone to read and sign. A group of prominent Christian clergy, ministry leaders, and scholars released the Manhattan Declaration on November 20, 2009 at a press conference in Washington, DC. The 4,700-word declaration speaks in defense of the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and religious liberty. It issues a clarion call to Christians to adhere firmly to their convictions in these three areas.
ACTION: Please read and sign the Declaration. Speak out along with hundreds of thousands of others. And encourage your pastor to sign!
