I’m sick of American “Christians!

Alright, I’m really allowing myself to get too frustrated with these people, but it amazes me how off the mark they are!

Pray at the Pump movement to lower gas prices? Can God lower gas prices? Sure!! But, is THAT what we should be praying for? I wonder how many of these folks have considered that maybe God would prefer they pray for PEOPLE???? Maybe even the gas station attendant or cashier?

LaHaye (and Stubble) plans to re-make his book series movies so they can portray the Left Behind “milk it for all it’s worth” series in a more professional light. Great! Now he’ll just be able to convince more people they can wait till after the non-existent “Rapture” to get saved!

A day of prayer and fasting in N’awlins but, concessions will be open for the entire six hour period including snack bar and smoothie bar! We don’t want to take fasting too seriously folks!

Lou Engels – IHOP leader and Latter Rain proponent asking Christians to fast for 40 days and pray. He says “He says “We (?) must bear the iniquity in 40 days of fasting and intercession for the past 40 years of divorcing God in America, embracing a culture of sexual immorality, hedonism, materialism, abortion and the rejection of Christ in public places. But we are also calling for 40 days of fasting and prayer for the greatest outbreak of Kingdom power, in signs and wonders, and the spiritual awakening in America that will collide with this present darkness and topple its cultural dominion over our people. Thousands went on 40-day fasts in 1946 and in 1947, the great healing revivals broke out. In 1948, the Latter Rain outpourings began, Bill Bright and Billy Graham’s ministries were born, and Israel became a nation. Could it be that the 40-day fast preceded this explosion of power by the Spirit? After Jesus’ 40-day fast, the scripture says He returned in the power of the Spirit. Yes the promise of Joel 2 is that after the fast, “I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh…”

Hmmm. Sorry Mr.Engels, but that happened in Acts 2 on the day of Pentecost. Just read what Peter says. If the results of fasting are Latter Rain, Todd Bentley, Patricia King, Jim and Tammy Bakker and the half-gospel of the Billy Graham Crusades, I think I’ll pass!

    Well, I hope you are not “sick” of all American Christians…*; ) We all have a long way to go before perfection sets in…Just like any family…some children take a bit more disciplining than others…Love covers a multitude of sin….If we know who Jesus IS and have accepted what Jesus DID, it’s up to the Holy Spirit to transform us…

    Theological discussion is very interesting and all Our posts indicated that we are among those who feel a need and actually enjoy taking the clock apart, examining all the geers and shiny pieces, then putting it back together and seeing if it still tics, some of us read the manual during the process. *: )

    But, when all is said and done, salvation is by grace alone. Theology never saved anyone.

  2. Nancy,

    My point here is simply that these folks have got their priorities are screwed up. They want their problems fixed and God to operate at their beck and call. I love all who call Jesus “Lord” and have obeyed the gospel. But, I am sick of the selfish and ignorant way these folk represent the King. They are causing people to mock God because they make Him a slave to them rather than be slaves for Him.

    And I really have a problem with the quote about “WE must bear the iniquity…”. We must depart from iniquity, not just admit it.
