  1. Watched the “American Religious Freedom” discussion on C-SPAN yesterday and was shockingly surprised with the bold statements made by Rev. Eugene Rivers.

    Loved everything he said! My thought was, WOW! Finally a minister who will stand up for Pentecostal traditional values based on the Word of God without compromise!

    His comments were even more meaningful when learning he is Senior Policy Adviser to a dear friend, Bishop Blake. What a great pair!

    Rev. Rivers should be applauded for standing firm on the principles of God and not be intimidated by the secular crowd. He may take a lot of heat for saying, “There is going to be a fight if secular groups try to take away his right to preach about specific issues that are against what the Bible says.”

    God bless Rev. Rivers — wish he had a church in California! Would like to get involved with the American Religious Freedom Organization.
