At a conservative Christian conference last weekend, controversial Congresswoman Lauren Boebert told attendees “the last days” are near and the church “has a role in ushering in the second coming of Jesus.” The Republican representing Colorado’s Third Congressional District referenced numerous Bible verses during her 50-minute speech at the Truth & Liberty Coalition Conference September 9.
The conference was held at Charis Bible College in Woodland Park, Colorado. The school’s founder, Bible teacher and Truth & Liberty Coalition president Andrew Wommack, told attendees America is “a godly nation” that was “founded upon godly principles. And the body of Christ needs to stand up against the rewriting of history and all of this woke stuff that is happening.” During the pandemic, Wommack held a large gathering that violated state rules and then challenged a cease-and-desist order.
Lauren Boebert: Church Has a Role in ‘Ushering in’ Jesus’ Return
During her sermon-like talk, Lauren Boebert said, “We know that we are in the last of the last days.” But “It’s not a time to get upset about it,” she added. “It’s a time to know that you were called to be a part of these last days. You get to have a role in ushering in the second coming of Jesus.”
The congresswoman urged listeners to put “God back at the center of our country” and conquer “the enemy” that’s attacking from within. “God is on our side,” she said. “The blood has been applied. We are going straight into victory. You are all more than conquerors through God, through Christ, who strengthens you every step of the way.”
Boebert, 35, took aim at pandemic-related health measures and church closures, labeling them an “attack on our faith.” She also spoke against sexual immorality, saying liberals “are inventing new ways to wreck lives.”
The congresswoman, who’s up for re-election in November, called for “revival” and restoration of conservative Christian values in government, saying America was founded by men “fluent in the Word of God.” She added: “It’s time for us to position ourselves, and rise up, and take our place in Christ, and influence this nation as we were called to do.”
Other Speakers Encourage Christians To Take Action
At the three-day conference, speakers praised the overturning of Roe v. Wade, decried cultural movements such as Black Lives Matter and cancel culture, and referenced conspiracy theories about one-world government.
Wommack said, “It’s Christians that have allowed this nation to go the way that it is.” And “if we got enough Christians to stand up and vote, we’d overwhelm all of their algorithms, and we’d beat their cheating.” He told attendees, “We are the kings. We are the ones who rule. And when we don’t vote, then we allow those with different values…we increase their power.”
