You need to know about two very important amicus briefs filed in the #DobbsvJackson case before #SCOTUS. When contrasted they are worth their weight in gold for a Presidential vote at #SBC2022. Let's consider: (1) @ERLC's and (2) Abolitionists'.
2/20 Let us contrast each brief on three points: (1) Filers or amici curiae (friends of the court); (2) List of authorities; and, (3) aims. Ask yourself, "Which amicus speaks for me?" For clarity, let's call them the RC/ERLC and FAA briefs.
3/20 RC/ERLC FILERS: The @ERLC did not write their own amicus, but signed onto one written and submitted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Filers include three other Roman Catholic orgs, Lutherans, and Nat'l Assoc of Evang. Who's NAE? supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/19/1… ImageImagePg 155 from Book of Reports...
4/20 The National Association of Evangelicals is a progressive group pushing LGBTQ+ agendas. @DennyBurk rightly exposed their "Fairness for All" campaign: "This is a disaster. . . . I will do everything I can to oppose NAE and CCCU in this." Read his 🧵.
5/20 FAA FILERS: Abolitionists signed onto an amicus brief written by Baptist attorney, @bradleywpierce, for the Foundation to Abolish Abortion, @AbolitionistFAA. faa.life/dobbs-brief on behalf of many abolitionist orgs all affirming sola Scriptura. ImageImageImage
6/20 RC/ERLC Authorities: Nowhere is God’s Word referenced. You'll find Pope Francis, Pope John Paul II, & Vatican II but Scripture is absent. @ERLC calls upon papists and progressives to represent Southern Baptists instead of God’s Word?? Thus, why we call it the RC/ERLC brief.
7/20 FAA Authorities: The first authority of the abolitionist argument against Roe v. Wade is the Holy Bible (2 Cor 10:4-5). God’s Word was brought before the Supreme Court as the Abolitionist Movement declared to the justices the higher court before Whom they must bow. Image
8/20 Should the SBC be led by the Roman Catholic Church in this battle, or should the @ERLC lead the SBC to respond biblically instead of depending on the Roman Catholic Church and progressive NAE for its talking points and strategy?
9/20 RC/ERLC AIMS: “The Mississippi legislation should be upheld.” What, you may ask, does the Mississippi legislation determine? Their answer: “Except in a medical emergency or in the case of a severe fetal abnormality, a person shall not intentionally or knowingly perform...
10/20 induce, or attempt to perform or induce an abortion of an unborn human being if the probable gestational age of the unborn human being has been determined to be greater than fifteen (15) weeks.” The RC/ERLC brief argues for regulating abortion as healthcare after 15 weeks..
11/20 meaning: (1) innocent children from the age of fertilization to 14 weeks 6 days are passed over with no protection under the law, and (2) homicide of all children is not included in the homicide codes for all born children. The RC/ERLC letter promotes partiality that...
12/20 God calls an “abomination” (Proverbs 17:15; 18:5). Over and against the RC/ERLC brief God demands, “You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality. . . . Justice, and only justice, you shall follow” (Deuteronomy 16:19-20).
13/20 The RC/ERLC brief also requests that the court not treat abortion as a Constitutional issue: “If it continues to treat abortion as a constitutional issue, this Court will face yet more questions downstream about what sorts of abortion regulations are permissible.” This...
14/20 argument is based on the assertion that the Constitution is silent on abortion, which assumes that preborn children are not “people.” If the preborn child is a person, then abortion would be outlawed by the fifth amendment, which states...
15/20 “No person shall be . . . deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” The RC/ERLC brief does not recognize or assert personhood from fertilization. BFM2K states, "Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord."
16/20 FAA AIMS: “Above all, the purpose of filing the brief was to glorify God. We aim in the brief to be respectful of the constitutional institution of the Court, yet strong and in earnest. God’s image is being slain with impunity and His law is being trampled underfoot....
17/20 "Children are dying and so is our country unless something seriously changes.” Also, “The brief was an opportunity...to leave a historical record of standing for life and justice against tyranny.”

Which amicus brief speaks for you? Does the RC/ERLC speak for you?
18/20 The @ERLC has lost its way. Sadly, instead of principally & powerfully representing Southern Baptists & our Lord according to His Word, they have veiled the Truth, veered from the BF&M2K, & swerved from the heart of and call from the messengers. sbc.net/resource-libra…
20/20 @tomascol has steadfast endurance & hardy resilience due to his settled confidence: "We have a Book!" "Desperate times call for faithful men and not for careful men. The careful men come later and write the biographies of the faithful men, lauding them for their courage."
This is the kind of resolution that should be a no brainer for the @ERLC and SBC. "Resolution on Equal Protection of the Laws for Preborn" Read and sign! Childrenhttps://forms.gle/sR71x5jHLaQPA8QH9

1/3 SBC 2021 Messenger, "Establish a task force to study strategies to end abortion." @ERLC, "Already doing it." Is writing a letter with the Roman Catholics to kill LA HB813, an abolition bill, an effective strategy to end abortion? #changethedirection baptistpress.com/wp-content/upl… Image

Jesus said for those who believe on Him there is a never-ending river of water from which to drink.“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, 'Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water’” (Jhn 7:38). Faith taps into the boundless supply of the life of Christ.
Revelation 7:17, “For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Matthew Henry says, “In this he deals with them as a tender father who finds his beloved…
child in tears, he comforts him, he wipes his eyes, and turns his sorrow into rejoicing. This should moderate the Christian's sorrow in his present state, and support him under all the troubles of it; for those that sow in tears shall reap in joy; and those that now go…
