Brad Dacus

Brad Dacus

President, Pacific Justice Institute

Brad Dacus has coordinated religious freedom and parental rights cases throughout the western United States. And in 1997, founded the Pacific Justice Institute, where he continues to defend religious liberties and parental rights without charge. The Pacific Justice Institute has a network with hundreds of volunteer affiliate attorneys and handles more cases on the West Coast than any other organization of its kind.

You may get tired of hearing about the issues involving this debate, but it is not going away anytime soon. Religious freedom continues to be a constitutional right and yet a hot topic in today’s post-Christian culture – a culture that has embraced moral relativism, and has seen too many be deceived by the redefinition of truth and tolerance.

Today, Brad Dacus, of the Pacific Justice Institute gives us an update on current cases including Ten Commandments displays, medical marijuana, transgender activism, and radicals suing Christian business owners. We also address recent concerns about the overreach of government and the courts in the lives of Christians. (See the articles below) Please don’t give up or back out of culture, and don’t stop voting or being involved in the political process that affects moral issues in America. Keep these matters in prayer and understand the spiritual nature of the battles being waged.

 

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:10-17

 

QUOTED

“Biblically and scientifically there’s only one race of humans – we’re all equal before God, all are sinners, all need salvation in Christ… Racism, gender issues, abortion, gay marriage – all moral issues that are symptoms of a foundational issue: the rejection of God’s Word.” – Ken Ham, AIG
