Your Next President? Rick Perry's Dominionist and Ecumenical RESPONSE

The Response Promo from The Response USA on Vimeo.

Watch this video. Didn't anyone learn their lesson from all the promotion of George W. Bush as a born again Christian? You think people would wake up to how these politicians use religion to get elected but it fools them every time. Just so you know Rick Perry is in with all the same Dominionists, such as who support Sarah Palin. Look at the church agencies and more involved with this initiative.

Of course by the use of something otherwise positive like PRAYER, they can bring in all churches into more unity and advance even more false political agendas:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a possible contender for the Republican presidential nomination, has summoned the nation's governors to participate in "The Response," which he calls "a non-denominational, apolitical, Christian prayer service." The assembly, scheduled for August, has elicited indignation from the secular left, who decry the event as an unwarranted mingling of church and state.

Perry definitely has ties to the Seven Mountain Dominionists: see here.

"Texas Gov. Rick Perry has tried to distance himself from the many extreme activists he is working with to put on The Response prayer rally, like the pastor who labeled Oprah Winfrey the harbinger of the Antichrist and the self-proclaimed ‘Apostle’ who called the Statue of Liberty a “demonic idol.” But Perry is open about his ties to advocates of Seven Mountains Dominionism, an ideology which demands that fundamentalist Christians take total control over all aspects of society. Dominionism advocate Jim Garlow is directing “National Church Mobilization” for The Response and other Dominionist endorsers of The Response include Cindy Jacobs and David Barton. Even the American Family Association, which is the official host of the prayer rally, now promotes Seven Mountains Dominionism.

Today, Perry appeared on Barton’s radio show WallBuildersLive and announced that he has received support from televangelist James Robison,who is leading the effort to rally the Religious Right around a Perry campaign for the presidency (though of course the rally is “apolitical”). Perry also mentioned that he is working with Loren Cunningham and his “prayer warriors” to mobilize support for The Response."

I want folks to think out what this would all mean if this guy becomes the next president, of course the majority of Republican candidates are in with the Dominionists.

As for Loren Cunningham, the guy helping Rick Perry, I posted about him here very recently.

I've got to get a grasp on the whole dominionism teaching because this is something that sounds good, but I agree it is not Jesus' teaching. It will even make people angry when you are not getting aggressive alongside of them "taking" the cities and industries for Jesus. Any recommended reading on this area of teaching?

Why take cities and industries for Jesus Christ, when they will burn up at the end. [the end of the world?]

Everything ends in this world too, like empires and cities themselves too.

I saw a church do that once, when I was visiting one and it immediately creeped me out. They had people stretch their arm over the city, they were doing the one we were all in, and taking over it for dominion. Very disturbing...
