Jennifer LeClaire, editor of Charisma News, quotes a veritable Who’s Who of Christian right con men, including Rodney Howard-Browne, the fraud behind the “holy laughter” movement. Browne says that unless God intervenes, America will be gone in a mere 2-3 years.
Natural disasters are claiming lives in America. Economic disasters are driving poverty in America. Agronomists are predicting famine in America. Politicians and schoolchildren are being shot in America. Pastors are falling into sexual immorality in America. Violent protesters are taking to the streets in America. All the while some Americans are arming themselves for another Civil War.
There’s been an increasingly rapid decline in America’s morality since prayer was removed from schools in 1962. Abortion was legalized in 1973. Massachusetts became the first state to legalize gay marriage in 2004. Plenty of wickedness has taken place in between and since—and the enemy is growing bolder. God has lifted a measure of His hedge of protection around America. Christians are meeting with persecution in the marketplace, and anti-Christ agendas are working overtime to send America into a downward spiral of darkness.“Without divine intervention, what we call America will be gone within the next couple of years. It’s that critical,” says Evangelist Rodney Howard-Browne, pastor at The River at Tampa Bay. “The handwriting is on the wall. Only God can save us now. This is not a game. If we don’t see a turn in the next two or three years, America as we know it will sink into the abyss and will be gone forever.”
But as LeClaire’s article points out, all of these “intercessors” who claim to have a direct line to God are praying and leading revivals every day. So why isn’t that changing anything? Millions of people are praying daily for God to intervene, to change the minds of Supreme Court justices, to bring revival to America, and yet it’s done no good. Is God waiting for some magic number of people praying? Are they just not praying hard enough, or with the right words? Jesus told his followers that if two of them agreed on something in his name, it would be done. But we have millions of people praying for this and it’s changed nothing. This is just a stab in the dark here, but maybe it’s all just a load of bullshit?
