Former SBC Prez: God’s Heart For This Nation is Unity

“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. –Matthew 10:34-36

Ripping Ephesians 4:3, completely out of context, a passage Paul wrote to the Church, Ronnie Floyd declares that God’s heart for America is “unity,” and that the National Day of Prayer should be focused on praying for this ecumenical and paganized unity. “The people of God need to get their act together in unity so that the nation has a shot at unity…could it be that the nation is reflecting the condition of the Church?” Floyd suggests.

The answer is a resounding “no!” Pagans act like pagans because they are unregenerate. Further, this passage has nothing to do with bringing unity to America.

To a grand applause, at the 8:00-minute mark, he declares:

The National Day of Prayer must become a multi-church, multi-denominational, multi-industry, multi-generational, multi-ethnic, and multi-lingual movement of prayer for America

His application of Ephesians 4:3 begins at around the 4:14 mark in the video below.
