Joint Pastoral Admonition to Evangelicals in Oklahoma

Whereas, Proverbs 24:11 commands the people of God to “rescue those who are being led to slaughter;” and

Whereas, Proverbs 31:8 commands the people of God to “speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves;” and

Whereas, Proverbs 6:17 tells us that God hates “hands that shed innocent blood;”

Whereas, Romans 13 clearly states the purpose of civil authority is to prohibit doers of evil works and defend the good; anything that is morally wrong, should never be legally right; and

Whereas, Dan Fisher, a pastor and former State legislator, is running for Governor of Oklahoma out of obedience to Scripture; and

Whereas, Pastor Dan Fisher is responding to the plight of more than five thousand babies murdered by abortion each year in Oklahoma; and

Whereas, Dan Fisher is not advocating for a theocracy and instead is advocating for a return to founding principles that the government is a servant of the people and not the people are servants of the government, and;

Whereas, Jesus rebuked religious and civic leaders of his day for neglecting justice; and

Whereas, the Christian Church in Oklahoma and its leaders have also neglected justice as it pertains to rescuing preborn children being led to slaughter; and

Whereas, Pastor Dan Fisher himself has repented of this sin and is now running for governor to end this holocaust; and

Whereas, Pastor Dan Fisher is fulfilling his biblical commission by speaking God’s truth, calling the Church in Oklahoma to repent, and calling the Church to obediently end the holocaust of abortion in Oklahoma; and

Whereas, Oklahoma has the de jure authority and jurisdiction to criminalize abortion; and

Whereas, the people of Oklahoma have spoken through their elected representatives via House Resolution 1004, the “Resolution to Abolish Abortion,” recognizing abortion as murder and calling on the governor and State executives to immediately abolish abortion; and

Whereas, the Oklahoma Constitution says in Article 2 § 2 that “All persons have the inherent right to life…;” and

Whereas, Oklahoma statute 21 § 691 defines homicide as “the killing of one human being by another [and] as used in this section, ‘human being’ includes an unborn child…;” and

Whereas, Pastor Dan Fisher is a man of his word and will move immediately to abolish abortion; and

Whereas, electing Pastor Dan Fisher as Governor will honor God;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED:

That we hereby exhort all evangelical Christians and leaders to faithfully work to elect Dan Fisher as the Republican nominee for Governor of Oklahoma on June 26, 2018.
