Labor Day is past and Congress is scheduled to reconvene today. Throughout history Congress has made very critical decisions, but none seem larger or more critical than decisions that are looming before our legislature today. By September 17, Congress must vote on the Iran nuclear deal and, as news reports have indicated, President Obama has enough support to uphold a veto once Congress votes down the deal. In addition, Congress will vote on a spending bill that may have implications on funding for Planned Parenthood. But let’s take a closer look at each of those issues.
It is not too late to stop the Iran nuclear deal from becoming US law. In fact, Congress has a moral obligation to uphold the US Constitution by declaring the Iran nuclear deal a foreign treaty, requiring a 2/3 majority vote in the Senate. Though President Obama calls the deal a “non-binding executive agreement,” his word is not more authoritative than the US Constitution. Furthermore, the terms of the Corker-Cardin bill have not been met, making Obama’s push for approval of the deal illegal.
Congress could vote on the Iran deal as early as this week, so I encourage you to take action TODAY.
- Click here to discover how Congress can…and should…declare the Iran deal a foreign treaty.
- Contact your Senators and encourage them to uphold their Constitutional responsibility. Click here to find out how to contact your Senators.
- Contact the presidential candidates and express your disapproval of the Iranian deal, asking them to commit to do everything in their power to nullify the agreement if elected. You will find links to all the candidates’ websites (including how to contact them) on the right sidebar of this website. (Yesterday, I contacted my Senators and 12 top presidential candidates and it took me less than 10 minutes.)
- Pray fervently for Senators to have the courage to act righteously in defending and upholding the US Constitution.
As for the vote on the spending bill connected to funding for Planned Parenthood, many Congressmen are poised to use spending legislation to strip funding from Planned Parenthood. Currently, our tax dollars are used to fund the murder of unborn babies. Even more shocking, recent videos have surfaced revealing Planned Parenthood discussing the “appropriate” way to perform abortions so that body parts of those innocent babies can be sold for profit. It is utterly disgusting and abhorrent before the Lord our Maker.
Again, take action by contacting your Senators and House Representatives to voice your adamant disapproval of the funding of Planned Parenthood by your tax dollars. Pray, also, that righteousness will prevail as our lawmakers vote on this critical issue.
Friends, we are watching our country run swiftly down a path of immorality and failure to uphold our Constitution. I’m left to wonder, “How long will God put up with this?” My honest thought is that God has chosen to extend mercy a little longer due to the fervent prayers of the saints. Let’s be faithful to pray for our nation, pleading that God’s mercy will draw our country to repentance. Let’s be the generation that makes honest appraisal of sin (individually and nationally) and turns from it. It is not yet too late…but we’re late in the eleventh hour. Will you take action right now?
