A proclamation by Ascension Lutheran Church, Waterloo, Iowa, as we take a stand in defense of God’s Word and Name! (1 Chronicles 12:32, Ephesians 6:13-17, 2 Timothy 3:16)

Whereas, God’s divinely inspired Word, the Bible, (2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Peter 1:20-21) is foundational for our church, and,

Whereas, due to its divine inspiration, the Bible possesses inerrancy (John 10:35) and authority (1 Peter 1:25, Psalm 119:105). It possesses sinner/Savior (Law and Gospel) authority for the Church and Civil (Law and Order) authority for the guidance of the State (Matthew 22:21) and,

Whereas, today, the U.S. Government, by its judicial restrictions on placement and use of the Bible in public schools, state colleges and military and government entities, is impeding and impinging on the Church’s free expression of the sinner/Savior (Law and Gospel) authority of the Bible and,

Whereas, today, the U.S. Government, by its judicial actions sanctioning life venues and relationships which are in violation of the Bible (abortion, homosexuality, same-sex marriage and transgender behavior), has rejected the Civil (Law and Order) authority of the Bible and,

Whereas, rejection of either the sinner/Savior or the Civil Law authority of the Bible would be unacceptable (Matthew 5:18), the rejection of both authorities is doubly unacceptable for “we must obey God rather than man!” (Acts 5:29) therefore be,

Resolved, that Ascension Lutheran Church, Waterloo, Iowa, in an effort to initiate a return of our nation to its as-founded acknowledgement of and reliance on the full authority of the Bible, publicly proclaim through all media available “2017 THE YEAR OF THE BIBLE”.
