According to One News Now:
ST. PAUL, MN - Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's evangelical pastor is joining her on the campaign trail.Rev. Mac Hammond told members of Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, Sunday that he and his wife will campaign with Bachmann, and that he may chair a national faith council for her, too. He called Bachmann "a sister in the Lord" who is committed to the Bible. He added that he's been Bachmann's "personal pastor" for some time.
The pastor said he and his wife have already made a campaign appearance for Bachmann. He introduced her on Friday in Nashville at a gathering of about 300 pastors, where he says he "got an opportunity to talk about the vital importance of the church rising up to take this nation back. Amen."
Hammond said his campaign work would be as a private citizen and not on behalf of the church.
(emphasis mine)Bachmann apparently attends Living Word Christian Center in the Minneapolis area. Upon visiting their website, one will discover that they've invited quasi-prosperity preacher John Hagee to preach October 21 - 23.
Hagee fits right in with the Word Faith crowd on TBN, and you can read a bit more about that here and here for starters. He also seems to espouse a form of dual covenant theology, as the article "The Other Gospel of John Hagee" found at Personal Freedom Outreach points out:
In short, Hagee believes that some Jews are not saved by the cross of Christ but by prior election and their pedigree in Abraham. There is a way of salvation in Christ and an election of grace for the Jew apart from Christ. No matter how you nuance it or define it, this is “Two Covenant” theology. This can be classified technically as a modified “Dual Covenant” idea regardless of what Hagee wants to call it or not call it. Hagee believes that two covenants are in force: A covenant of election for the Jew and a covenant of grace for the Gentile. This is an attack on the very Gospel as presented by Jesus and Paul, as we’ll see. And then what about half Jews or Jewish converts? Where do they stand? (Online source. I suggest you visit PFO's site and read this entire article).Just one more thing for us to be mindful of as the worries of this world continue to take our focus off of Jesus Christ and onto earthly and temporal matters.
"He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!" (Revelation 22:20)
Amen. Come quickly, Lord Jesus!
