Despite all the atheistic, socialistic, humanistic agendas that are attacking our foundations, there is yet a remnant. And part of that remnant is gathering in an historical city to pray for the salvation of our nation.
America for Jesus, a solemn assembly starting Friday in Philadelphia, aims to mobilize Christians in prayer, calling the church to be "the salt" that will bring healing to the nation. It was birthed out of One Nation Under God, a coalition of ministries that has organized several solemn assemblies that have attracted several hundred thousand people.
Charisma News caught up with Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, to get his views on what makes this prayer rally so vital.
Charisma News: Why is the America for Jesus rally so vital at this particular moment in time? Why is this solemn assembly so strategic?
Rodriguez: I can give you historical proof of this. We have never spiritually been down the road we find ourselves in as a nation. From abortion on demand to the diluting of the basic definition of marriage to the government requiring religious organizations to offer contraception and abortion services via the HHS Mandate to even a political party extracting any mention of God from the platform, we have never been down this road before. Never ever, ever have we been down this road before.
In my opinion, our No. 1 issue is not the economy or the economic malaise. Our issues are moral relativism, spiritual apathy, cultural decadence and a lukewarm church. And the No. 1 most serious problem we have in America is a lukewarm church. The objective of the America For Jesus Rally is to revitalize, to ignite a fire in the American Bible-believing church so the church will stand up for righteousness and justice in the name of Jesus. That's the objective.
