A Statement on Roe by the Presiding Minister of the CREC

I am posting a CREC statement here on the overturning of Roe, a statement from our presiding minister of Council, Virgil Hurt.

Statement on the Overturning of Roe v. Wade

The CREC thanks God for the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the United States Supreme Court. 

While we know that this does not end the wicked carnage of abortion in the United States, we are grateful that in this decision God has answered fifty years of prayers by millions of His people, and that it will greatly reduce the number of abortions in our land. Praise be to God!

In light of this decision, the CREC reaffirms the sacred right to life given to us by God from conception to natural death. 

We call upon God’s people to continue to pray for national repentance for the slaughter of countless millions of preborn children. We also call upon our national and state leaders to affirm and promote a culture of life and to denounce and forbid the culture of death surrounding abortion on demand.

Christians have long been on the forefront of ministering to women and their babies in crisis pregnancies. This decision will increase our opportunities to proclaim the good news in Jesus Christ and to meet pressing needs, the very things the Church is called to do.

We know that this decision is going to cause much division in our land. 

We pray that the bitter fury now being expressed would spend itself quickly. 

We pray that God will grant wisdom to His people and that they will not return evil for evil.

We pray that God will bring peace and stability to our land. 

We pray that His will be done on earth, and in America, as it is in heaven.

Presiding Minister of Council
