And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ

Dear Friend,

The such in first Corinthian 6:11 refers to a long list of behavior representing the brokenness and rebellion of humanity. Praise God, the death, burial, and resurrection offers sanctification and justification for every human condition that mars God’s image upon His creation.

LD 912
The Conversion Therapy Ban [LD912] is in direct opposition to the truth of the transforming power of the resurrection. If passed, LD 912 will make simply talking about the possibility of change regarding sexual orientation or gender confusion cause for loss of license and/or being sued for fraud. Imagine Maine counselors and pastors being prohibited from offering the hope of being freed from the bondage of any sin.

Here’s what you can do to help stop this dangerous bill 

Marijuana
Please pray for us as we continue to assess our next move regarding recreational marijuana. We believe we have influenced the MLI Committee to present a highly regulated bill to the legislature. I don’t believe this bill is enough to prevent the inevitable destruction that legalizing this drug will cause; therefore, we are attempting to determine whether to proceed with an attempt to repeal the referendum initiative that legalized recreational marijuana here in Maine.

New Team Member
We’ve been asking for your prayers through the process of searching for a new policy director. I’m very excited to announce the Hon. Mike McClellan, a former three term legislator, has joined our team as our full-time policy director. To learn more about Mike click here to hear my recent interview with him.

This legislative session we are defending our religious freedoms and fighting against the ravages of substance abuse. Please consider a gift to our Beacon Campaign to help defray the costs of our direct and indirect lobbying efforts. Your generosity helps us pursue a state where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.
