In a 2013, Joni stated:
|Joni and me at Biola University, CA
"As a stalwart Christian, Mark believes that in this darkening juncture in history, followers of Christ have a vital role to play in restoring a cultural mindset that holds fast to the sanctity and dignity of all human life. ..."
"I pray you will support Mark Pickup -- my friend is spearheading a valiant effort to push back the tide of darkness in Canada and shine a light of biblical truth across every province."
That darkening juncture in history to which Joni refers is a New Dark Age where incurably ill and disabled people will eventually be routinely euthanized -- with or without their consent! The ominous shadows of that New Dark Age threaten Canada, America and much of western Europe. Christians must unite now to resist the cultural acceptance of euthanasia and assisted suicide added to sea of blood that is polluting the land by abortion. Let me again use Joni's words that we must "push back the tide of darkness in Canada and shine the light of biblical truth across every province."
I am available to address denominational leaders, churches, Christian hospitals and medical groups, universities, colleges and schools, politicians and legislative committees, pro-Life and community groups about the perils of euthanasia/assisted suicide acceptance and how Christians can stand against them and for human dignity. To obtain my biography or bookings please write to me at HumanLifeMatters@shaw.ca
If you would like to join me to "shine a light of biblical truth across every province" contact me at the same email as above. I'm interested to discuss collective Christian strategies not only for life-affirming public policy but life-affirming alternatives to counter euthanasia and assisted suicide that threatens vulnerable people.
