Last week, we noted that David Lane, the secretive and radical Religious Right activist who is organizing Gov. Bobby Jindal’s upcoming “The Response” prayer rally, is also behind an effort to get 1,000 pastors to run for political office.
Lane is seeking to transform America through the election of hundreds of right-wing pastors who share his Christian Nationalist agenda and, to that end, has organized a training session to take place the day before Jindal’s prayer rally called “Issachar Training: Men and Women of Issachar,” which will feature advice for pastors on how to run for office from Jindal, Sen. James Lankford, and others:
Please prayerfully consider being my guest at a pastors’ briefing hosted by my friends at the American Renewal Project. We are going to discuss the importance of raising up the next generation of leaders in America who understand these challenging times and know what to do about them. There is a great need for the kind of leaders we read about in the Old Testament, “The Men of Issachar” (1 Chronicles 12:32). We need such men and women of wisdom today who will accept the challenge to restore our Judeo-Christian heritage in America.
On January 23, 2015, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, pastors will be given an exclusive opportunity to explore the Call to Serve. I ask you to spend time in prayer seeking the Lord’s guidance for the role He has for you to play in protecting Religious Liberty in our nation. As we make an appeal for leaders of faith to rise up and engage America in the public square with Biblical values, we are trusting you will hear God’s call on your life for this mission.
Our goal is to educate, and encourage leaders by informing them and inspiring them of their Biblical, historical roots, and to step out in courage to join us in this journey of faith. The call is not to take our nation back, but to get back to God. The time has come for pastors to lead the way and reset the course of American governance.
I hope you will join us for an evening of information and inspiration as we all work together in the mission of bringing America back to God. A formal invitation is coming to you. Let me encourage you to register online by means of the link provided in the invitation, as soon as you receive it.
