Let's restore the family unit

To the editor;

A friend once claimed that he and his girlfriend shared a house in England but had a no-sex relationship. I snickered when I read this. It is difficult to believe, in this day and age, that people actually love the Lord more than anything.

Years later, I can say from personal experience that it is more than just possible. It is very true. It takes prayer for strength. There must be a total desire by both involved to please the Lord.

The answer to this country's problems comes from within the family. We need to get the family unit back together as God intended. I am not condemning anyone. I was guilty in the past, too. Sex is a gift from the Lord. It must be put back into its proper place: sacred, holy and undefiled.

Abortion kills human beings. This cannot be allowed to continue.

Morals must be put back into everyday society. Every breath we breathe, every step we take, we must do our very best to follow Jesus' example.

We can rid ourselves of the immoral laws and court rulings if we vote against any politicians who supports the immoral laws. The politicians will never support any such laws if they know it will cause their defeat in the next election.

Put your faith in the Lord, not a politician.
