TWO EVENTS took place the weekend of August 16-17, 2008 that Christians should mark well. They herald nothing less than the march of American evangelicals down a road that culminates in the ascendancy of the Antichrist.
The first was the nationally televised “Saddleback Civil Forum”, hosted by Rick Warren. The second big event saw an estimated 50,000 people converge on Washington, D.C., for “TheCall”, twelve hours of fasting and praying for God’s forgiveness on a nation that’s turned away from His holiness.
Like Warren’s PEACE plan, it sounds noble. But look beneath the surface.
Their actions are not scriptural, and they’re laying the groundwork for a political leader who says he shares their goals to win the hearts, minds, and souls of millions of people who claim to be Christians.
