Annual Report 2013
Dr. John M. Adams
In Exodus 33;18, the theme text is “Show Me The Glory.” Moses felt, perhaps, as if he had not yet fully beheld the glory of God. He longed for that great, awe-inspiring blessing of a full beatific vision. Moses craved for a close communion with his Lord. Born-again believers know that no one can truly know God and walk with Him without diligently attempting to live a life of good morals. The guilty conscience cannot bear the near presence of the Most High God. Sinners shrink from the keen inspection of the all-seeing eye.
But, the true follower will want a life of righteousness.
Moral Action of MS Schedule and Highlights
2006-07 Religious Freedom
2008-09 Abortion and Pro Life
2009-10 Homosexuality and Gay Rights
2010-11 Muslims and Sharia Law
2011-12 Value Voting
2012-13 Political Involvement
2013-14 Separation of Church and State
The highlighted theme for our 2013-2014 Associational year will be teachings on “Separation of Church and State.”
I will be presenting these thoughts during speaking engagements and writings.
The liberal media and educators wish to silence the Christian churches, pastors, and workers with the threat of “separation.” “Not so” cries out God’s Word and our United States Constitution.
Please pray for Moral Action of Mississippi that we have clarity and protection. We have an awesome and challenging work before us.
Moral Action Service
During the October 2012-September, 2013 Association year, your Director has traveled to the Mississippi State Capitol for seven visits. I’ve had the distinct privilege to meet with Governor Phil Bryant and Secretary of State Delbert Hoseman. I presented to Mr. Hoseman the book “Personal Faith and Public Policy” by Tony Perkins. I have spent time working with Mr. Cadley Burns, Coordinator for Mississippi 1st District U.S. Congressman, Alan Nunnelee. Our own BMA Deacon and State House of Representative for District 19, Randy Boyd has been so inspirational. He has worked on the traditional marriage legislation and the amendment to require proof of citizenship to register to vote in MS.
Moral Action Success
I have enjoyed the “God and Country Rallies.” We have held two already in the South Mississippi areas.
Our next Mississippi Rally will be in the Hattiesburg area, November 14, 2013. I have held five rallies outside the state and have two others scheduled in the future.
Moral Action Promotional Video
Our new video which is used as a promotional tool, has made our work more visible. Some videos are still available if desired. Feel free to contact me. Ms. Adams and I have had the opportunity to visit with Mississippi United States Senator Roger Wicker, and Mississippi 3rd District Representative Greg Harper. Our focus has been saving the two words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States Flag.
Moral Action Selection
In November, 2013 the Moral Action Ministries and Director has been selected to represent the BMA of MS and America in Washington, D.C. I will serve as Guest Chaplain for the U.S. House of Representatives November 18-21 with House Chaplain Rev. Patrick Conroy. I will lead in prayer before the U.S. House as an honored guest of United States Congressman Alan Nunnelee. Praise the Lord!!!
Moral Action of MS Support
We wish to thank each church, association, and organizations for your continued financial gifts. We also need your prayers. Your faithfulness to stand with this State agency has been the strength upon which we have drawn from this past year. Surely, we Christians still tremble at the mighty hand of God. Isaiah stated in Isaiah 13:9, “Behold the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.” Then in verse 11: “and I will punish the world for their evil…”
Things to pray for and to act upon:
