Des Moines BLM has issued a “report card” to Governor Kim Reynolds. This list shows their errors of judgment in the light of God’s Word.  It is clear that we are in a spiritual battle both politically and as a society. Following Jesus is the changing of your mind to align with His truth. It is repenting of our trespasses against Him to receive His incredible mercy. God is our liberator, He is our path to freedom.

Education I John 4:18 reads “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” We refuse to have fear of Covid because Jesus is our Healer. James 5:14-15, Exodus 23:25

School choice is just about freedom and liberty.  Galatians 1:5

Healthcare Abortion is not healthcare. God says, “You shall not murder.” Exodus 20:13 

Psalm 139:13-14 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”

Migrant 

Rights

The U.S. has always been a nation of immigrants but it must be done in a lawful manner. God sets the borders of nations. He is a God of order. 

Acts 17:26 tells us “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.”

LGTBQ 

Rights

Romans 1:24-27 “Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.”

Racial 

Justice

Again, God is a god of law and order. We could refer to Acts 17:26 again. We all are made in the image of God. It is up to each individual to make their own decisions that will be judged by the Almighty God.

Cannabis is just a shadow that leads people away from finding the infilling of the Holy Spirit which is infinitely superior to any drug. Ephesians 5:18

Serving

Iowans

We are to have faith in God for all that we need, not depending on our government. In Luke 12:35-31 God tells us that He will provide all our needs if we first seek His Kingdom.

The government is not meant to provide for us but simply uphold the law of God.

“Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.” Romans 13:1

Voting 

Rights

Every US citizen is given the right to vote when they come of age. What you call voter suppression is actually voting integrity. The last presidential election proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that our elections have been compromised. Daniel 2:21 tells us that God “…changes the times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others…” God has his reasons for Biden but Donald Trump is our president. When that is proven be pleased that you can be assured that all votes will count.
