God’s Deadline Looms

At 10:00 am on August 6 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, the conflict between theocracy and democracy will come to a head. One great big pimple.

Texas governor Rick Perry is the newest name being tossed around in the Republican presidential candidate fishbowl. As governor, he once suggested that the Longhorn State threaten to secede from the Union. Sometimes he makes me think that Stan Freberg’s “Yellow Rose of Texas” was fashioned after Perry. Of course Perry was only 5-years old when Freberg’s brilliance came through.

Now Perry is sponsoring The Response: A call to prayer for a nation in crisis. This is a national Christian prayer meeting, in most modern sense. Perry is asking followers who cannot make it to Houston on this fateful Saturday, are asked to join him by hosting a “live Webstream [sic] gathering” in their home.

As a nation, we must come together, call upon Jesus to guide us through unprecedented struggles, and thank Him for the blessings of freedom we so richly enjoy according to His grace, mercy, and kindness towards us. A historic crisis facing our nation and threatening our future demands a historic response from the church. We must, as a people, return to the faith and hope of our fathers.
