During our 2008-2009 Associational year, your Christian Action Commission has been well represented at the Mississippi State House and at our United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. It was my distinct honor to share with Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and Lt. Governor Phil Bryant about our CAC mission. I was privileged again to lead in the opening prayer for the State Senate and our State House. I have also visited with U.S. Senator Roger Wicker and U.S. Representative Travis Childers regarding our CAC concerns
During this past year, each church was mailed a copy of the “Petition For Initiative Measure To Amend the Mississippi Constitution.” (Attached) The petition has been well received. It’s intended purpose is to show the “term person to be defined to include every human being from the moment of fertilization.” Our churches, along with hundreds of others, have pledge to stand against abortion. Abortion has been our highlighted focus for the 2008-2009 year. As of September 2009, there will need to be 90,000 petitions validated before our local circuit clerks.
Once validated, the petitions are sent to the Honorable Delbert Hoseman, Secretary of the State for Mississippi. The 90.000 signed petitions will allow this amendment to be voted on by Mississippi voters. Thanks to each church, pastor, teacher, and circulator who had a part in this drive.

The Director and Board of Trustees of the Christian Action Commission of the Baptist Missionary Association of Mississippi propose that the Christian Action Committee’s name be changed to Moral Action of Mississippi, an agency of the Baptist Missionary Association of Mississippi.
This is a request by our national agency Moral Action. Each state or regional association will be asked to name or rename their moral agency such as: the Moral Action of California, the Moral Action of Texas, etc. This will enhance unification and cohesiveness among our states in the area of morality. As Executive Director of our national Moral Action agency, I desire to have contacts in every state and region of the BMA.
The Silencing of Christians
America is in a “Valley of Decision” as Joel declared in the Old Testament. We recognize the desire by Satanic forces to silence the voice of Christ and His Church.
But we that believe in Godly, biblical convictions cannot sit idly by, our voice must be heard. BMA churches still believe in the home, morality, the Bible, the Church, and the greatness and power of God.
The War is Before us!
The main battlefront today is for our children. Whoever controls the children, controls our future. There is an agenda today to guide the children in America from God via television, books, movies, public school mandates, etc. Such organizations as the ACLU and American Atheists are leading the battle in our courts to remove God from our children in the public schools.
The New Testament church has a mandate and unlimited opportunity to engage our children in the teaching of the word through Sunday School, VBS, Awana, Galileans, GMA’s, church camps and youth groups.
Alan Sears in the book, “The ACLU vs America” states, “the ACLU is defending those who abuse children while attacking those who give them moral guidance.”
The Christian Action Commission continues to promote Biblical morality and to strongly oppose the evils of our time, such as alcohol, child and drug abuse, sodomy, homosexuality, pornography, gambling, abortion, and euthanasia. As we share articles in our state paper, printed materials, videos, webpage and suggested readings, pray that God will use this work for His cause.
