 FLORIDA, Oct. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- In the past year, the Dow Jones has seen a thirty-five percent decline, resulting in a $10 trillion dollar loss. The current economic meltdown is affecting the lives of tens of millions of Americans. Bill Keller, the world's leading internet evangelist, contends that God is using the economy to judge this nation for its sins.
 
On May 2, 2008, Keller - founder of Liveprayer.com - told his 2.4 million daily devotional subscribers that God would use the economy as a form of judgment on the nation for its sins. And God did just that (video ref: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tc71qfmRv9I)
 
Keller claims that there are no man-made solutions to the economic problem because, at its core, the crisis is really a spiritual issue. This is why, Keller explains, the $700 billion rescue effort has not helped, nor, he says, will it ever help; the Federal Reserve buying unsecured corporate paper has not helped; the cutting of prime by half a point has not helped, nor have any of the other attempts by the leading economists in the nation to resolve the economic crisis we are currently struggling with helped.
 
"Sadly, people don't understand that the only answer is to turn back to God and biblical truths," says Keller. "This nation was once greatly blessed by God, but today we legally slaughter over four thousand innocent babies each day, we have made a mockery of God's holy institution of marriage, we worship every idol and false god man has ever created, and we live in total rebellion to God and his truth."
 
"God is a God of love, grace, and mercy, but he is also a God of judgment," Keller continues. "We spit in the face of God every day, and now we're simply reaping what we've sown."
 
"Many will dismiss the notion of God's judgment as the foolish talk of yet another religious kook," Keller goes on. "However, the Bible does say in 2 Corinthians 2:14, But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
 
"The fact is, all of humankind's wisdom has been unable to resolve this economic crisis because the answer isn't a natural one...it is a spiritual one," explains Keller. "Unless this nation gets on its face before God, asks his forgiveness, and turns from its sins, I'm afraid we’ve only just begun to experience the wrath of God."
