WND's Farah Prays For Others (But Not Himself) To Repent
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah discusses New Year's resolutions in his Dec. 31 WorldNetDaily column:

Politics takes place largely in the natural world, and that’s where we live. But we need to recognize there’s a world beyond the natural.

That’s why I resolve in 2015 to devote more time and passion to personal prayer. The older I get, the more convinced I become that prayer is the most effective and important thing we can do with our time – for both the natural world and the spiritual realm.

God wants to have that relationship with his children. And we need to have it with Him.

Here’s what I will be praying for in 2015:

That believers in the United States repent for what they have allowed our country to become. America has been one of the strongest, freest and most prosperous nations in the world for a long time. It has also been one of the strongholds of Christianity. But all that is changing. And it’s the fault of Christians. Believers need to be on our knees more in 2015 repenting not just for the sins of the nation, but our personal sins. Our model should be 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Farah himself apparently feels no need to repent, even though he's in desperate need of doing so. Not only is he an inveterate liar, his website peddles hate and fear and misinformation on a daily basis.

Farah likes to set himself up as an avatar of all that is right and Christian, yet he won't subject himself to the standards he demands from others. His hypocritical "National Day of Prayer and Fasting" showed this, as he laughably insisted his motivation wasn't political even as his bill of particulars for the day read like an anti-Obama rant.

Farah demands others repent for their "personal sins," but it seems he doesn't believe he needs to do the same for his personal sins. He's apparently not enough of a Christian to know that God frowns upon such arrogance.
