August 2021 Female Conscription for Military Service

The Senate National Defense Bill that recently left the Armed Services Committee of the U.S. Senate had an addendum attached that would require, if it was affirmed by the full Senate and House of Representatives in a majority vote, women to register for selective service making them subject to a military draft in time of war. We find this abominable. Therefore we have written letters that can be used for Federal Representatives, State Representatives, and Governors. We will also be adding an occasional testimony to our Constitutional material soon on, “Man’s Duty To Protect Women” in the near future.

Federal Senate/Legislative Letter

State Senate/Legislative Letter

Gubernatorial Letter

In the future we will add a mayoral and a city council letter as well. Christians, in our estimation, should be seeking lesser magistrates to stand between them and unjust or immoral laws being produced at both the Federal and State levels, appealing to the magistrate as the “servant of God” (Romans 13:4). If we are to subject ourselves to the civil rulers (Romans 13:1-2) then civil rulers must be punishers of evil and rewarders of good (Romans 13:3-4). If they begin to reward evil and punish good we must respond to them as the apostles responded to their magistrates in Acts 4:18-20 when they were given and unjust and immoral commanded,

18 So they (the Sanhederin/Ruling Council) called them and charged them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.19 But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge,20 for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.”
