This two-part article found at Talk2Action concerns some added information concerning one of the meetings mentioned by Dr. Orrel Steinkamp in his excellent article below, The Coalescing of the Christian Right with Apostolic Dominionism.
On April 15-16 the Freedom Federation, a recent coalition of Religious Right organizations, will be holding a conference at Liberty University titled The Awakening 2010.
This gathering of Religious Right leaders features familiar faces and familiar themes such as opposition to gay rights and reproductive rights. But the overall theme of the organization is reforming American government. The Freedom Federation includes established Religious Right organizations including the Family Research Council, Traditional Values Coalition, Eagle Forum, Concerned Women of America, and Wallbuilders, but notable is the inclusion of many organizations from the independent charismatic wing of the Religious Right which has been organized and streamlined under the auspices of C. Peter Wagner’s New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and its apostles and prophets.
These include Lou Engle’s “The Call,” Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Ministries and Oak Initiative, Strang Communications, Cindy Jacobs’ Generals International, and Che Ahn’s Harvest International.
The conference is going to include the unveiling of a new social networking technology platform which will advance the communication network concepts already developed by the leadership of the NAR.
Their religious/political networks are used to disseminate prophecy and link their prayer warriors in all fifty states and around the world. The NAR “Spiritual Warfare” networks fall under the authority of Cindy Jacobs and Dutch Sheets.
Also on the roster are other New Apostolic leaders including Rick Joyner, head of MorningStar Ministries and the Oak Initiative. Joyner has been one of the leaders in the battle against health care reform and advertises his contacts with Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann. His Oak Initiative page includes videos which demonstrate the worldview and goals of the organization.
At the bottom of the page is a video titled The Proper View of Capitalism. This is a segment of a film titled “Overview of America” produced by the John Birch Society.
