another case of conservatives tying to the wrong people?

I would really like to think this event would be a good thing. Really. But I have my doubts.

The Response

For one thing, I've simply become unimpressed with these big gatherings. This isn't the first thing like that's happened in recent years, that's suppose to be some significant event where thing happen. And, usually, it seems things after the event are very much the same as before.

According to the Bible, the answer to a nation in such crisis is to gather in humility and repentance and ask God to intervene. The Response will be a historic gathering of people from across the nation to pray and fast for America.

I'm not sure where "according to the Bible" this answer is located. If they are referring to what Solomon prayed at the Temple's dedication, then we have to keep context in mind. Very likely, Solomon's statement was meant only for Israel.

Plus, when I look at the people leading or supporting the event, many red flags go up in my head. Connections to the International House of Prayer in Kansas City seem to be numerous. IHOP-KC is a part of this apostolic/prophetic movement that is simply fake. Several people on the leadership page are associated with IHOP.

And the co-chairs and endorsers continue the questionable associations. The IHOP head honcho Mike Bickle is there, as is Cindy Jacobs. There is a man who calls himself an Apostle. As well as Ed Young Sr.

There are things about this event that just don't seem right.
