Three years ago I watched many of my fellow Christians jump blindly on the Sarah Palin bandwagon based solely upon the belief she was a Christian. It was quite a shock, to put it mildly, to log on line the morning after she was introduced at the Republican convention and see the sheer number of Christian bloggers (and on-line ministries) who were already promoting her on their websites. It quickly became apparent these brothers and sisters knew no more about her (except her claim to be Christian) then I did. But that didn’t stop them from blindly “buying a pig in a poke”. It wasn’t until later it became known that Sarah Palin had close ties to members of the New Apostolic Reformation and had their backing.
Now in 2011, we are in a same but some-what different position my friends. Different in that we know now the NAR is at least backing & promoting one candidate in order to further their dominionist agenda by laying claim to the ‘mountain of government.’ That candidate is Rick Perry.
Already I’m reading on a number of Christian blogs/boards/ and forums today, in which Christians in the face of knowing beforehand Perry is being backed by C. Peter Wagner and his New Apostolic Reformation/Joel’s Army/false Apostle-Prophet posse, an eager willingness to support him. And brethren, its one thing to be ignorant of truth and another to willfully ignore it once you’ve been made aware it. We will be held accountable for what we know.
In my opinion God is being merciful, for He sees our lack of discernment & has left no doubt this time around as to what (and who) we will be aligning with if we jump on the Perry/NAR bandwagon: Heresy, false Prophets/Apostles and teachers, and the unbiblical false doctrines of dominionism.
