I want to offer you an outstanding DVD about the Bible in a moment, but first I want to talk to you about how we are rocking the establishment in 2017.
AFA Action has successfully fought the swamp in Washington to advance a conservative agenda, such as confirming conservative Supreme Court, appellate, and district judges like Judge Neil Gorsuch, advancing religious liberty, and stopping the establishment’s attempt to federally fund abortion. AFA Action has made a positive difference in 2017, and I’ll tell you more about what we’ve done below.
Will you consider standing with AFA Action this Christmas by making a generous financial contribution? Donate now. Your support will help us continue the advancement of Christian and constitutionally conservative values – from the halls of Congress to state legislatures – in 2018.
When you do, I will send you AFA’s new landmark documentary – The God Who Speaks. This 2-DVD set features a powerful defense of the authenticity and reliability of the Bible.
This documentary will help you understand why AFA Action unapologetically makes Christ and the Bible central to our mission. Our fidelity to God and the Bible makes us distinct among other “conservative” or “pro-family” groups. In a politically correct society, many of these grou
ps do not appeal to the Bible as their fundamental source of authority. If you financially partner with AFA Action, you are standing with an organization that publically proclaims Christ and the Bible as fundamental to its mission.
The mission of AFA Action is clear: to inform and mobilize individuals to strengthen the biblical foundations of America. Our mission is not to rely on politics to change hearts and minds, but to be “salt and light” in our culture (Matt. 5:13-16) and to expose the “fruitless deeds of darkness” (Eph. 5:11).
Holding federal and state politicians, and the culture-at-large, accountable for their deeds is for their own good. It gives them the opportunity to repent and gives us an opportunity to advance righteousness in our land because “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Prov. 14:34).
Why should you financially support AFA Action? As you know, the battle never ceases. Just in the final days of 2017, AFA Action fought against Democrats and establishment Republicans who wanted to pass federal spending legislation that could have funded abortions. We opposed it, and their efforts failed.
The advent of the swamp terminology to describe the political establishment in Washington is fitting. Both Democrats and moderate-to-liberal Republicans who have refused to defund Planned Parenthood and refused to fund the border wall fit in this category. They are an obstinate group of politicians who have given every indication they are intent on resisting a conservative agenda set forth by President Trump.
Swamp members of the House include members of the moderate-to-liberal Tuesday Group, and Senate swamp members include those who support the ongoing obstruction of Democrats by keeping the legislative filibuster.
Also during 2017, AFA Action fought for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. We called on the Senate to nuke the Democratic filibuster on Supreme Court nominations. Because of our supporters responding to our action alerts and bringing pressure to bear on the Senate, America now has Justice Gorsuch serving on America’s high court.
Consider these other reasons to financially support AFA Action this Christmas. AFA Action has also:
AFA Action strongly opposes an increasingly popular view among evangelical Christians that believers ought to withdraw from the culture war and take a passive stance instead. This line of thinking suggests Christians ought to stay out of politics and only share the Gospel.
While it is true that Christians are called to evangelize, authentic evangelism confronts sinners not only with the truth of the Gospel, but evangelism also confronts their sin as in the case with Jesus and the woman at the well (John 4). The Bible declares there is no forgiveness of sin without turning away from sin and to God (Luke 13:3; Acts 3:19).
AFA Action remains committed to its mission “to strengthen the biblical foundations of America.” Any generous financial support will help AFA Action continue the advance of Christian and constitutionally conservative values in 2018.
