“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23, ESV)

Sanctity of Life Sunday, 24 May 2020

As a denomination which has committed itself to a pro-life message to our people and to the world, can I ask you to recognise 24 May 2020 as a Sanctity of Life Sunday? A number of other denominations and organisations will be joining us in this. We cannot be indifferent to the fact that about 90,000 abortions take place every year in Australia. If Abel’s blood called out to heaven for justice, so surely does the blood of these little ones.

God hates all sin, but the sin of shedding the blood of those who have done nothing worthy of death is especially heinous. We are called upon to be bold in our witness to justice and to be prayerful that God would cleanse our land.

With kind regards in Christ,

Rev. Dr Peter Barnes
Presbyterian Church of Australia
