Last Day Madness


  • “Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first deprives of their senses.”Euripides
  • “Whom God wishes to destroy he first makes mad.” Seneca

quote..

Neal Horsley, building on Rev. Steven L. Anderson’s notoriety wants to make imprecatory prayer an even higher profile tactic against the president, abortion providers, and anyone else deemed to be violating God’s Laws. And Horsely is just the guy to do it. He was a pioneer in web based militant antiabortion activism as a provocateur who has long been involved with the violent Army of God.

Neal Horsley, of Carrollton, Georgia, thinks Anderson has the right idea —

On a new Web site called ImprecatoryPrayer.com, apparently launched last week, he links to the audio of the inflammatory sermon on Anderson’s Web site, encourages readers to click on it. “Listen here, to Pastor Steven Anderson,” Horsley writes, “as he tells people what God wants His people to do about Barack O’Bama (sic).”

“Don’t Listen To This,” Horsley warns, “Unless You Want To Do the Will of God.”

Horsley is busy updating the tactics of threat and intimidation he has used for more than a decade against abortion providers, pro-choice activists, presidents and judges.

This time he’s featuring Obama, and possibly, in his sense of timing, exploiting the political hailstorm over health care reform.

Horsley is nothing if not a showman and he knows an opportunity when he sees one. Thanks in part (but not only) to Anderson, imprecatory prayer, calling on God to smite his enemies, as King David did in the Bible, has become fashionable on the far religious right–and the national media is suddenly paying attention.

Horsley is requesting people to send him video or audio imprecations against the president, or other of God’s enemies that he will place on his new Web site. “All you need to do,” he writes, “is speak the prayers into a microphone, or better yet, into a videocam recorder, and then send them to me?

“Be as specific as possible” he urges, “in defining who you believe God must destroy and as specific as possible in the means God should use in implementing that destruction.” (Talk2Action)

  1. Well pj, I say this with sadness and tears, the separation of the sheep and the goats is really ramping up and it looks like America will have many goats and few sheep.
    The one encouragement I’m reminded of comes from scripture where God tells Elijah that he has reserved 7000 who have not bowed the knee to Baal and I feel that applies to our situation. Thank God for the hope we have in Christ!

      Amen Amen Gary!!

  2. The quotes at the top from Euripides and/or Seneca are a misquote, should be ‘Whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad’ and probably also wrongly attributed as the origin is actually unknown. A minor point, and much less serious than the main text that follows, but I thought I would mention it anyway in the interests of accuracy. :).

    • Gordon, i think you’re quoting Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

      “Whom the Gods would destroy they first make mad.”

      Others who made similar statements:

      “When falls on man the anger of the gods, first from his mind they banish understanding.” Lycurgus

      “When divine power plans evil for a man, it first injures his mind.” Sophocles

      “Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first deprives of their senses.” Euripides

      “Whom God wishes to destroy he first makes mad.” Seneca

      “For those whom God to ruin has design’d, He fits for fate, and first destroys their mind.” John Dryden

  3. […] hundreds of years … the very same which many Christians are apparently willing to torture and kill other people in order to […]

  4. One as to look at king Nebuchadnezzar and what he said about God after he came in out of the field from eating grass and know that madness is some times the begining. Daniel4;34-37
    But on the other hand Peter spoke of the madness of the prophet of balaam, and their end. Which is what our government is turning into and may have been for its inception.
    They really don’t need to pray for their destruction because it may be really really soon. What they need to pray for is that they would be found in Christ Jesus when that destruction does come! Oh and pray for the peace of Jerusalem and that our Lord would return soon.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby

I Was a Teenage Dispensationalist

It's the end (of the end) of the world as we know it...
