Former SBC President Now Reigns Over Ecumenical National Day of Prayer
Remember that guy we warned you about in 2014? The guy Al Mohler nominated for the Southern Baptist Convention presidency? The guy JD Greear nominated for a second term? Yeah, that’s him. The one that joined hands with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and Mike Bickle of IHOPKC and downplayed the authority of Scripture as a “matter of secondary importance.” The one who promoted several cult leaders and dangerous heresies such as the “sow a seed” prosperity gospel. (For a recap of Ronnie Floyd’s SBC presidency, see here.)
Floyd has found a new home…as a different kind of president. The National Day of Prayer, an ecumenical NAR inspired dominionist seven-mountains mandate organization that gathers millions of people from around the nation every year on the first Thursday of May to pray together in spiritual unity–to whichever God you serve–recently named Floyd as the new big cheese. Their web site states,
We want to share with you some very exciting news being announced today across the nation. As you know, National Day of Prayer has been in a period of transition. After seeking the Lord’s leading, and with much godly counsel, our National Day of Prayer Board of Directors is pleased to announce that, effective today, Dr. Ronnie Floyd will assume the role of President of the National Day of Prayer.
As we step into this new phase of carrying on this mission and legacy, we believe that we couldn’t have found a man more passionate or dedicated to prayer and spiritual awakening than Ronnie Floyd. Throughout his life he has demonstrated that he is a leader with a unique calling to unify others to pray for our nation and its spiritual awakening.
We will never know on this side of heaven how many lives have been impacted by this powerful movement of prayer. We are grateful for leaders like Vonette Bright and Shirley Dobson, who provided leadership for decades, and Anne Graham Lotz, who provided leadership in a major time of transition in our ministry. We are confident that Dr. Floyd will build on their legacy, and lead us forward in these turbulent times to become a movement of prayer that goes far beyond a day in May. Never before has our nation needed prayer like we do today, and the need for National Day of Prayer in our nation has never been greater.
Giving Floyd glowing accolades, surprisingly, is Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis. He states,
The National Day of Prayer is such an important day for our nation. Millions of Christians unite each year on the first Thursday of May to pray for our leaders and our nation. We need prayer more than ever as religious freedom and freedom of speech are increasingly attacked, so-called racial tensions are rising, and our government is very divided. Mark May 3, 2018, on your calendars and join with millions across the nation in lifting America before the Lord, as we should do every day.
It’s sad to see that so many religious leaders have made an idol out of religious freedom and ecumenism. The National Day of Prayer does not distinguish between true and false expressions of Christianity. Heck, it doesn’t even distinguish between other religions altogether. The National Day of Prayer includes Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, Hindus, and just about any other aberrant anti-Christ religion in the world who will stand in front courthouses, government buildings, churches, streets…anywhere, and join hands in prayer to their false gods in the name of “restoring America.”
God is not going to restore America through a false Jesus or a false gospel. Ecumenism is sin.
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? — 2 Corinthians 6:14-16
