The Call Nashville, is taking place tomorrow at LP Stadium in Nashville, TN you know where the Tennessee Titans play. It is being organized by Pentecostal preacher Lou Engle, and the idea is for young people to pray and fast for revival in America, sounds great right? Well...
"Wrapped in prophetic language, Engle paints us a picture of a powerless god who has to make up for letting a culture slide. Engle’s god has to renew his vows to his children and needs them to fast and pray SO THAT he will move! He even (although perhaps inadvertently) says that it was Elijah and not God who broke Jezebel’s “spell.” Engle’s picture of God is weak and unable to give blessings that he intends for his children UNLESS they engage in a 40-day fast. Unbelievable.Excerpt by Drew of Sign of Jonah web blog be sure and to read the comments at this post!!!
If we are to take Engle’s words as the words of the one true God, then the result of The Call should be a marked change in the immorality that has defined (and I’d be prepared to argue THAT WILL CONTINUE to define) America. Don’t get me wrong, I hope America turns around, but it won’t be because of our efforts to coerce our Creator thru some “holy fast” contrived in the hearts of men.
It is also things like this that constantly hype up young Charismatics and drop them down after nothing significant happens or after the feelings wear off. This pattern is the path of burnout, disillusionment and possible departure from the faith entirely. May God open our eyes to the truths of his infallible word, for they always satisfy."
