A Letter Concerning America from Dale Gentry

      If you have not already signed up to pray with Dale Gentry for a spiritual awakening in America I encourage you to do so.  We, and the rest of the world, are in crisis.  There is only one way out.  It is stated in II Chronicles 7:14: "If my people, who are called by my Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My Face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will heal their land."  It is a promise we are trusting in.
    Here is a recent letter from Dale concerning America.

Dear Breakout Prayer Network,

I'm very thankful to each of you who pray with me daily concerning another spiritual awakening in America and also other nations of the world. 

Concerning America, it's evident that we are a nation out of control. I hardly recognize the country that I've grown up in.
What has happened to this land of the free and home of the brave?

We can blame our demise on the president, congress or other entities. We can blame other factions or factors, but I believe most of the blame should rest squarely on the shoulders of the American church that I call the "the silent majority." 

As Christians we have given our children over to government (public schools) that teach secular humanism. They follow these teachings into major college and universities that are hotbeds for humanism, socialism, immorality and teachings of Islam. The Muslim movement is rapidly gaining momentum as the Aljazeera television network enters the homes of millions of Americans this month. 

Our president is continually endorsing and promoting the homosexual movement while one well known Hollywood Star declared just this past week in USA Today that she is encouraging parents to let their children invite their friends of the opposite sex to have a "sleepover" or "move in", admitting that she lived with her boyfriend when she was 14 and is planning on encouraging her children to do the same. The very moral fiber of our nation is unravelling before our very eyes with little resistance.   

All of these outlandish viewpoints are being swallowed hook, line and sinker by millions, including many Christians as well.  Where does the problem lie?

I believe the problem goes straight to the pulpits of America 
where many pastors are afraid to tell the truth to their parishioners. They are silent when it comes to naming sin. When it comes to declaring to their congregations what is holy and unholy. The difference between righteousness and unrighteousness. Many of our church services in America are nothing more than motivational speeches presented by feel good leaders who want to remain neutral by not offending anyone, including leading pastors in America who are working hand in hand with the woman who is America's top show host. The one who believes there are many ways to heaven. 

Much of this liberalism is being fueled by false- grace preachers who are indoctrinating their members that there is no longer a need for repentence. Many leaning in the direction of Universalism which teaches there is no hell or it's only a temporary experience. But after 46 years of full time ministry, I have seen history repeat itself and I saw this movement rise and fall when I was a boy, with "do whatever makes you feel good" principles turning into the moral decay of a generation of church leaders and Christians. "Billy Graham wonders what his late wife Ruth would think of a nation in which self-centered indulgence, pride and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle".

Today I'm announcing that I'm standing with 94 year old evangelist Billy Graham who is praying that America will experience another great spiritual awakening. 

This awakening will come as we repent and call for a spiritual cleansing, accompanied by churches gathering to pray on a regular basis.  

Thanks again for your faithful prayers. I believe we are making a difference.
