On Sunday morning at the Dallas area’s respected Prestonwood Baptist Church, Pastor Jack Graham delivered two strong—really electrifying—messages before he preached this week’s sermon.
First, he asked that the lights be brought up in Prestonwood’s cavernous auditorium so that churchgoers on hand and those watching online could see and pray over 13 large American flags draped over rows of pews all over the main floor and in the balcony, honoring the 13 fallen heroes killed in the humiliating military defeat engineered by President Joe Biden. It was a heartbreaking and powerful reminder that we owe so very much to young people who enlist in our Armed Forces, fulfilling the Scripture (John 15:13) that “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
Second, Pastor Graham took a few moments to single out members of the Texas legislature who this week finalized SB8—Texas’s “Heartbeat Bill”—the law banning abortions six weeks into a pregnancy anywhere in the Lone Star State
