No, it's not the Economy, dear Church

Or it is but focusing on the economy is useless. God's in charge of the economy. God's in charge of all of it but so many Christians are only looking at the specifics, how to deal with this or that problem, not consulting God. This is what's wrong with the nation. It's why we are where we are, facing the problems we're facing, given the undesirable options we have. It's why we have a wannabe Hitler running against a Mormon with a Catholic running mate (and let me be clear, I think Ryan is a GREAT guy), having passed over the evangelical he could have had instead.

You want to change the economy? You want God to bless our "basket and our store" instead of allowing a drought to destroy it?

Read Deuteronomy 28. Sure, it's to Israel as a special covenant nation but do you really think its principles don't also apply to all nations including America? Do you really think that stuff "just happens" for no good reason? Well, I suppose most people do. But Christians shouldn't. A nation that obeys God will be blessed, but cursed for disobedience.
Proverbs 14:34: Righteousness exalteth a nation but sin is a reproach to any people.
We need to stop trying to solve problems exclusively from the human perspective. The nation is under judgment. If there's any hope of turning it back we need to turn the nation back to God. That's called "repentance."

Back to the God of the Bible, of course, not the God of the Mormons, not the God of Rome, not the God of Islam, not the God of the Deists or the Unitarians or the Universalists or the Liberal churches, but the God of the uncompromised Bible. He's the true God, the others are counterfeits.
