Lotz Wife

A recurring appearance

Anne Graham Lotz “is an American Christian evangelist. She is the second daughter of evangelist Billy Graham and his wife Ruth Graham. She founded AnGeL Ministries, and is the author of 11 books, of which her best known is Just Give Me Jesus.” She is also a bottomless well of merriment for those who enjoy hanging around the fringes of modern religion and banging at the low-hanging fruit. For example:

Anne Graham Lotz Says God Sends Terror Attacks Because Of Bathroom Rights And Evolution

By Ed Mazza

Terror attacks such as 9/11 and the mass shooting in San Bernardino were allowed by God because of the gay rights movement and the acceptance of evolution, evangelist Anne Graham Lotz said.

“Our nation seems to be shaking its fist in God’s face and telling him to get out of our politics, get out of our schools, get out of our businesses, get out of our marketplace, get off the streets,” Lotz told conservative radio host Steve Deace, according to audio posted online by Right Wing Watch. “It’s just stunning to me the way we are basically abandoning God as a culture and as a nation.”

When that happens, “God abandons us and he backs away and takes his hand of favor, blessings, His hand of protection away from us and he abandons us,” she said.

This, of course, causes me much anguish. Who would have thought the gay rights movement had such dire consequences. All those queers out there ought to pay heed and reflect on the damage they are bringing on us straight people. And evolution? Yes, evolution. Mrs. Lotz, the recent product of an ancient lineage of ape-like humanoids, wants to disavow her upwardly mobile ancestors, without whose hard-scrabble persistence she would not now have the opportunity to denounce  them.

She recently appeared on the Steve Deace radio talk show to discuss her new book, The Daniel Prayer. I’m not tempted to purchase the book and do a review, but a copy of the introduction is on-line. It’s a few pages, and it concludes:

And there’s only one solution.

When faced with God’s righteous judgment, there is nothing . . . nothing . . . no politics or president, no government or agreement, no institution or organization, no media or ministry, no economy or military, no alliance or treaty . . . nothing will turn our nation around except prayer.

Heartfelt, desperate prayer. Prayer where the pray-ers rend their hearts, return to the Cross, and repent of personal and national sin. Only prayer that moves Heaven can change a nation.

And that’s the Daniel Prayer

Contact me if you are unable to obtain a copy of the intro for yourself.

I have to admit this is a whole side of human existence foreign to me, and I will not attempt to comprehend it. This I do suspect, and I am paraphrasing others:

God is all knowing, all seeing, and all powerful. He has a plan.

Prayer is a device employed by people to tell  God he is mistaken, and he should do something else instead.

And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
