God is the creator and giver of life. From before we were born until beyond the end of time, God is supremely interested in our lives. When we diminish, minimize or destroy the life of another person, we mar the pinnacle of God’s creation—that which was created in His image.

God promises to bless the nation who

prioritizes God’s relationship to it

the kingdom voter is a Christian who

takes the opportunity to promote the

rule of God in history through civil

government they are at their core

Kingdom Independence

they do not ultimately belong to any

political party they belong to the

kingdom of God

they ultimately are dedicated to

advancing God’s name God’s person and

God’s policies in history I am a kingdom

citizen I do Kingdom voting as a kingdom

independent because I do not represent

the kingdoms of this world I represent

the kingdom of the Lord and of his

Christ the vote of the Kingdom

independent and make sure your church is

a kingdom Church creating Kingdom

disciples who are making a kingdom



we’re talking about Kingdom voting

and so when we talk about voting

we have to deal with the issue of life

because since that is the role of

government to protect life

than when you consider

your vote

you have to raise the question about

what is life

since that is it’s divinely ordained


now most discussions about the issue of

Life do not start at the right place

that’s because they unfortunately not

enough start with scripture

God is the creator of life

therefore we start with God

when God created Mankind in Genesis

chapter 1

verses 26 to 28 he said let us create

man in our own image

so discussion of life in any human form

it finds itself starts with the Imago

day that is the image of God

when you don’t start with the image of

God then you make life what you call it

to be not what God has created it and

stamped it to be

the psalmist says in Psalm chapter

8 verses 4 to 6 what is man that thou

art mindful of him and you have crowned


with Majesty

this means that every human being has a

Divine Design

this means that every human being is

sacred because they have the stamp of

God on them

that means every person created was

created for Community since God is a

Triune being one God composed the three

co-equal persons is one in essence while

distinct in personality so we were

created for one another

it means that every person matters it’s


from womb to tomb

when God created man

he created him with a mind

to reflect him in history

and that means that when we fail to give

dignity to humanity

in whatever way we fail to do it we’ll

talk about that in a moment we have

insulted not only the person we have

insulted the creator of the person

whenever life is

destroyed illegitimately

whenever life is

downgraded illegitimately

we have said to the Creator you are a

bad manufacturer

you don’t know how to produce human


in your image is not worth protecting

and your image is not worth emulating

and to show you God how we feel about

you since we can’t get to you we’re

going to get to them and what we do to

them will share how we feel about you

because every time life is

illegitimately removed or downgraded you

have insulted and attacked God

so over and over again the Bible is

clear Thou shalt not kill

whether it’s homicide suicide patricide


genocide whether it’s in infanticide or

or fetch aside

no matter what kind of side it is

it becomes an attack on God which is why

God says in Genesis chapter


he says when you take a person’s life

you have removed your own life because

you have attacked the image of God

see God views it as a personal insult

when life is not given the value he

gives it to it because what you say it


what God did is not worth protecting

so any discussion of life

has to start there

any discussion of life has to start with

the Divine mark

and the job of government the Bible says

is to

protect that life

that’s why safety is often called by a

government the first responsibility that

it has

to deal with enemies within and without

because life is worth living why because

the manufacturer’s reputation is worth


you leave God out of government and life

and its value gets downgraded reduced


and attacked

and so when you think about Kingdom

voting you must think about the question

of life

what do we mean by life what what are we

including in this thing called life

well let me give you the big

the big perspective

it includes

pre-born life

and post-born life

abortion before birth

and abortion after birth

let me show you what I mean in Psalm 139

verse 13 to 16. let me read it to you

for you formed my inward parts

you wove me in my mother’s womb

I will give thanks to you for I am

fearfully and wonderfully made

wonderful are your works

and my soul knows it very well

my frame was not hidden from you when I

was made in secret

and skillfully wrought in the depths of

the Earth

your eyes have seen my unformed


and in your book were written the days

that were ordained for me

when as yet there was not one of them

you had my life in the womb but you had

some stuff planned for me to the tomb

and to get rid of either side

either the existence or cutting short

the extension

is an attack on the Creator

and unless you understand that on both

sides of the maternity ward

on both sides of the created Genius of


you will not have a Biblical view of the

role of government

you’ll just have a partisan view or a

personal view but you won’t be dealing

with life as God deals with it

let me say a word about in the womb life

in Job chapter 10 verses 8 to 12 and in

Job chapter 31 verse 5 job says

that you made me in the womb

and that I have the qualities of God in

my unborn state

Psalm 22 verses 9 and 10 says God brings

the child out of the womb so he he gets

it started because he stitches it

together and he brings it out

Matthew chapter 1 verse 20 when Mary the

Virgin was pregnant with our Lord Jesus


the angel told Joseph

that Mary is carrying a child

the Bible is clear that in the womb is


in fact it’s bigger than that

God Is So committed to life in the womb

that he prescribes its value before it

ever gets into the womb that’s right

Isaiah says in Isaiah chapter 49 verses

1 to 5 before I ever entered the womb

you had a plan for me

Dr Evans will be right back after this

important announcement




thank you

imagine the thrill of walking down the

same streets listening to the sounds of

joy and laughter touching the walls of

an ancient city Can you feel it that’s

the power of the place where Jesus lived

died and rose again

Jeremiah 1 verses 4 and 5 says you you

had you had a purpose for me prior to my

entering in Paul says in Galatians 1

15-16 there is a plan in other words

when God allows the baby to be in the

womb that’s because he had a plan before

it got to the womb so that when it

entered the womb it began the process of

experience experiencing its Destiny

outside of the womb so whenever you cut

that short

you have interfered with the program and

purposes of almighty God

and in Matthew chapter 1 verse 20 he

says it began when I was conceived when

it was conceived

so there’s life in conception after all

that’s why it grows because it’s alive

so when the government talks about

it’s okay to abort

it’s saying it’s okay to attack God

when you attack him in the womb

you have you have come against him and

he doesn’t like it and that’s why he

said in Genesis 9 you attack my life I’m

attack you

so you want the government to keep you

safe or they better keep you safe by

keeping God happy

and it keeps you safe by keeping God


by not legislating or legalizing

death in the womb



I know

I know one of the arguments is well this

is the lady’s body

well first of all

if you’re carrying a boy

there’s Parts in your body that don’t

belong to you okay you can’t equate that

with you

secondly of all we’ve established that

it is the creation of God

just because it’s your body it doesn’t

mean you get to do whatever you want

with it see that’s the problem

in fact the government makes laws all

the time the justice is your body

doesn’t mean you can do what you want

with it you drive drunk okay you’re

gonna be in trouble it’s your body you

can drink what you want to drink but

they’re going to create boundaries on

your freedom and you can’t argue well

it’s my body you can’t argue that it’s

my body so I’m going to abuse somebody

else I’m going to rape somebody else I’m

going to do something no no no secondly

of all we’re talking about a different

genetic code we’re not talking about

your genetic code we’re talking about

that brand new genetic code

so it’s not just about you but the

selfishness of our world

has reduced and dumbed down

the Dignity of life because it is dumbed

down the Imago day

the image of God that is involved in the


of birth

and so

you don’t give people freedom to do

wrong even if they’re doing wrong with

their own bodies

no you have laws that structure good and

bad and remember God says I’m the author

of what’s good and what’s bad what’s

right and what’s wrong you don’t get to

choose that that is if you want me

involved now if you want to get me out

of the picture and see how chaotic your

culture become remove me

and then let’s watch what happens

so now you have all manner of Chaos

because of the

attack on God

the government is to protect life

and it is to protect it

because it wants God on its side

but leave God out

and then it’s my body it’s how I feel

it’s what I think it’s and then

we have people who say uh well

I wouldn’t do it

but I don’t think that I should

tell other people what to do that’s a

very interesting compromise particularly

when it’s done by Christians

a lot of things you wouldn’t do that you

would tell other people they shouldn’t

do either

a lot of things

you wouldn’t be a part of and you would

tell them quickly well you shouldn’t be

a part of that evil either because God

has spoken on the subject

you don’t run away you don’t you don’t

just say because you wouldn’t do it no

you find out what God says

about the issue and that becomes your


we want to talk about saving the life in

the womb

but oftentimes disregarding it to the


removing its longevity

through murder

removing its dignity

through how people are treated

they’re not only to be laws to protect

the existence of life

there also must be laws to protect the

Dignity of life

American slavery was a loss of dignity

Jim Crow was a loss of dignity

racism in any form is a loss of dignity

whether it’s individual or familial or

structural it is canceling out the

dignity it is removing the crown that

exists on every man and every woman Born

Into the world

putting your knee on the neck

of a helpless victim

is not only to destroy their life it is

to attack their dignity

that’s why the Bible says in James

chapter 3 verse 9 how dare you reduce

the dignity by cursing not cussing

cursing that is removing the Dignity of

a person why why cannot you take away

the Dignity of a person he says in James

3 9 because they’ve been created in the

likeness of God so we’re back to the

Imago day that when you take a person’s

dignity away from them

when you tell them by the color of their

skin they can’t

go here do that participate as an equal

created person

when you

take away their uniqueness by their race

their face or their place their station

in life

when you treat the homeless as though

they have no dignity

when we treat the poor as though they’re

the leftovers or the refuse of society

when we take the down and outers and we

oppress them

or when we create

structures in society that reduces them

whether it’s gerrymandering of districts

and redlining of districts so that

there’s not equal excess

when we allow the poor to have worse

education than others because they don’t

have the same dollar bill

when we don’t care about the health

well-being of people

who do not have access to adequate

Health Care

when we reduce their dignity

we have attacked God and when we reduce

it by law

or by practice

then that’s called

post-life abortion

because you are aborting either the

length of their existence or the

well-being of their existence so it just

depends on which abortion you’re talking


because all of it is to reflect


Psalm 89 14 God says from my Throne

comes righteousness and justice

you can’t have one without the other

these are twin towers they operate

simultaneously we got one group calling

for righteousness we got another group

calling for justice as though God can be

divided he says from my Throne you got

to deal with both

so don’t just talk to me about moral


talk to me about it but don’t put a

period there talk to me also about the

just application of the law

without discrimination

talk to me not only about what you’re

going to do with the poor but how you’re

going to handle the rich who are

breaking my standard

but because they have money they can

bypass it or eat their way out of it


no they’re two kinds of abortions

there’s abortion in the womb but there’s

abortion on your way to the tomb so that

people don’t get to live out there

divinely ordained destiny

yes we should protest


in the womb but that same number of

people or more are to righteously and

peacefully protest abortion outside of

the womb

so that means we got the same group

protesting for Life the right to all of

life not term life not limited life

a lot of people in our world now have

been crumpled up

by sin circumstances oppression

but what we need to do is remind them of

the image that’s been put on their lives

they’ve been stamped by God

and because they’ve been stamped by God

they have the image of God

they’ve been tramped on and reduced by


made to feel like nothing it’s called

outside of their names

they’ve been not included where they

should legitimately have been included

well we need some folk to come along

particularly led by Christians

across racial and cultural and

denominational lines who are Kingdom


this thing of life is so important that

God says in Matthew chapter 5 verses 21

and 22

if you call somebody by a hateful name

you call them their life is not worth

living which is what the word fool means

in that context your life is worthless

he says watch this you’re in

Jeopardy of Hell’s fire oh no you didn’t

he says I will send you to hell

that’s what Jesus said

for reducing a person’s Humanity

so you see this is about God

so government you better jump in here

and yes I know we’ve got sides of

somebody emphasizing life in the womb

somebody emphasizing Justice to the tomb

well you Christians better come out here

and say okay well you know I know I got

to vote here or there but where I’m

gonna take my stand

is on whole life

comprehensive life

I’m going to take my stand with God

I’m going to take my stand and fight for

all of life

so what do we do

if you’re going to be a kingdom voter

that means you have to vote for life

and Life Starts at conception

because Jesus was conceived as a child

and it goes to death

but between the two should be dignity

between the two

should be protection

so that they can maximize their freedom

now they may not do anything with their


they may not do anything with their


but that shouldn’t be because you set up

structures systems attitudes

or perspectives that got in the way it

should be because they chose to eat the

fruit not because you Force fruit down

their throat


it is time

for Christians to adopt their whole life

agenda and vote for government to

protect a whole life agenda and if your

government party only is going to

protect one side of it

then you hold them accountable and

responsible to not ignore the other side

of it

and you do it in a righteous way because

if you try to do it in an unrighteous

way God’s not going to be with you there


remember Kingdom voting is a partnership

so yeah God’s gonna make the final

decision but he still wants your

participation so you don’t get to stay


you get to evaluate the candidates you

get to say which which reflects the best

view that you can come up with by the

leading of God you’ve been called to the

kingdom that’s chaos in our culture

that’s chaos in the world and you’re

supposed to be a kingdom Christian and a

kingdom disciple casting a kingdom vote

well let’s be a kingdom voter get up

out of your chair

and go vote

but I got good news

because the good news of scripture in

second Corinthians chapter 3 verses 17

and 18 is Jesus Christ is available

today to conform you to his image yeah

that’s right

you know he can change your image

your self-image

your image of other people he can turn a

racist into a non-racist

he could term prejudice

into acceptance he can remove


he can give you dignity that you don’t

have to

bend over and have other people ride

your back

he can give you significance and for the

lady who’s had the abortion he can

forgive you

he can get let you begin again

because you’re still in His image

so the beautiful thing about coming to


is that he can take whatever is messed


and he is the fixer-upper

so I invite you now

if you’ve never come to Jesus Christ as

your personal savior

if you’ve never recognized he died on

the cross for you in your place for your

sins he rose from the dead to give you

eternal life and that if you will simply

trust him alone as your sin Bearer if

you’ll go to him right now

and say Lord Jesus I’m a sinner

I recognize you

want to be my savior

and I trust you now to come into my life

forgive me of my sin and give me the

eternal life

that you promised to give if I came to

you for it I receive it now by faith

he will forgive your past no matter how

bad that past is

and he’ll restore your image

because that’s why you were created

life begins with God

because it starts with the Imago day

that is the image of God

life begins in the womb and it is to be


and valued to the tomb

God makes it clear in Psalm 139 verses

13 and 16.

that he is involved in the creation of

life in the womb

so to attack The Unborn is to attack God

himself since they are being created in

His image but it also relates to the

Dignity of people once they are born

James 3 9 makes it clear that people are

not to be cursed because of the Imago

day the image of God

so from womb to tomb cradle to grave

life must be valued


impacted and improved

and treated with a high honor God gives

it because life is related to God first

we are the beneficiaries


thank you
