“Being included in the ‘Newsmax’s 100 Most Influential Evangelicals In America roster brings a new level of accountability to my lifelong journey of service to God and humanity,” said Evangelist Alveda King, Founder of Alveda King Ministries and Director of Civil Rights for The Unborn for Priests for Life.
The announcement reached King while she was “praying over the situation regarding the looming Alabama Senate race.” As a longtime prayerful supporter of Judge Roy Moore, King says she is “concerned that voters will be distracted by the media fury involving unsubstantiated accusations.
Evangelist Alveda King, who had an enormous impact during the 2016 election, took the news humbly. Encouraged, she turned the attention back to the abortion crisis in the United States.
“While we must be ever mindful of the need to protect our women and children, we must also remain focused on the issues at hand because every vote counts in the race for life. In Alabama, Judge Moore stands for the sanctity of human life from the womb to the tomb. His opposing candidate Doug Jones who is an abortion advocate does not. Remember, Life is a Civil Right. In this election, and indeed in every election, as the One Blood Human Race of Acts 17:26, we must always vote our values, with life from the womb to the tomb as a priority.
“Jesus said: “Ye who are without sin, cast the first stone.” It’s important to remember, especially during the coming Thanksgiving and Christmas season that Christ’s lasting mission is to heal rather than condemn humanity. A divine insight: “Mercy overcomes judgment.”
“We are currently in a climate of playing the “blame game” while accusations are running rampant. As a woman, I appreciate the opportunities now available to women and indeed all victims of abuse to come forward to receive healing. However, in the process we must leave the doors open for repentance rather than fostering destruction across the board.
“In the case of Judge Roy Moore what is lacking for many is the certain confirmation that the accusations are true. On the other hand, the sincere testimonies of those who have known and supported Judge Moore through the years, mine included, far outnumber the current charges against him.
“Meanwhile, we must remember that we should never rush to judgment before the genuine facts and not opinions and fake news are considered. True justice demands that any judgment must be withheld until the real truth is revealed.
“If we fail to pursue these truths, we run the risk of creating and fostering a climate of further injustices for our unborn children and ourselves as well as further establishing a precedent for increasing unjust condemnation in the future.”
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
