Thoughts About The “Manhattan Declaration”

Here last week I was handed a copy of the Manhattan Declaration, I had briefly heard about it on the news but knew little about it. After reading it I must say that I agree strongly with its aim; that the sanctity of human life, the historical definition of marriage, and that both individual and corporate religious freedoms are under serious threat at this point in our history. I am pleased that church leaders; regardless of their theological background have realized they needed to come together as a group and reaffirm the biblical positions on these culturally divisive topics, positions that transcend all denominational and ecclesial lines. If you would like to read the declaration for yourself, just click on this link .  I would love to hear your thoughts about it, so feel free to comment.

About Jim

I'm currently the Communications Director for Missouri Operation for Vigorous Evangelism [MOVE] A Church planting ministry located in Jefferson City, MO. I believe that the church is the primary means through which God works in a community to love and redeem it. Here at MOVE we’re discovering new ways to be used for this purpose as God leads us and lights His path for us. As God forms this organization and shapes it for a new kind of world I want to be right in the middle of what He’s doing, traveling on this road of a disciple’s journey.
