“If we lose Freedom Here, We have no place to go”


Pastor Rafael Cruz, father of United States Senator Ted Cruz attended the American Renewal Project at the Greenville Hilton as guest speaker Friday. The purpose of the conference was to encourage pastors to stand up! return to their church and mobilize their people in the pews to register, to vote and to take their Christian convictions with them to the voting booth.

Pastor Cruz placed the blame for our current problems squarely on the men who have been hiding behind their pulpits. “When Bibles and prayer was removed from schools, they did nothing. When the Supreme Court allowed killing of millions of babies in the womb, they did nothing. When the Ten Commandments were removed from the public square, they did nothing. Tyranny prevails when good men do nothing.”
