Reader Input: Letter inspires Bible reading

-A +A

Re: Irene West, Auburn, (“Killers get away with murder,” Reader Input, Nov. 8):

In the 1960s many more men than women took to the streets in overwhelming numbers igniting “The Women’s Movement,” leaving Congress no choice, but to amend our nation’s Constitution, enabling women, all women, the freedom to control their bodies, consequently their own lives.

Can we not find empathy, Irene, with those that have had to make the utmost crucial, heart-wrenching decision of their lives and to have it remain in the depths of their conscience until the day they die?

Thank you immensely, Irene, for inspiring me to search out my V.A. Bible where it had been gathering dust for way, way too long.

Matthew 7:1, “Judge not, that you be not judged;” Matthew 7:2, “for with judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

Romans 14:10, “But why do you judge your brother or show contempt for your brother? For we will all stand before the seat of Christ.”

Ephesians 5:9, “for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness and truth.

Ephesians 3:17, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you will be rooted and grounded in love.”
