Earlier this week the White House faith liaison Joshua DuBois spoke with Dr. David Jeremiah about his remarks concerning the direction President Barack Obama’s economic policies are taking the U.S.
Jeremiah is currently preaching a sermon series on the “Last Days,” and his new book The Coming Economic Armageddon: What Bible Prophecy Warns about the New Global Economy he is rather vocal about the coming disasters predicted by the Bible concerning global economy as well as events that must happen which set the stage for the Great Tribulation.
OneNewsNow reports David Jeremiah spoke with DuBois and that Jeremiah said the conversation was “cordial.” In Jeremiah’s statement, he said,
“In this important dialogue about the future of our country and the resolution of the issues that we are currently facing as a nation, there must be room for criticism and debate, and each of us should feel the responsibility to speak out. Joshua knows of my concerns and left the door open for further discussions in the future.
“Please remember to pray for our nation and for our president!”
Amen to that! Jeremiah also stated on American Family Radio’s Today’s Issues that he meant what he had said. He also affirmed that all Americans should be able to voice their opinion without reprisal.
Our nation is taking giant leaps toward socialism. It is not a place where we would like to reside no matter how attractive the marketing package makes it sound. All we need do is learn from history, the most recent is Spain and Greece. More distant, but still memorable, is Russia. Can we forget the long lines where a size 8 foot was handed a pair of size 11 boots? Can we forget the way the Russian government ordered people to jobs they had no affinity for? Regardless of artistic talent, some were forced into something else. The discontent rose to the same level as the end of the Czar era which is why the collapse of the old Russia. It is also why the Berlin Wall fell.
Obama’s lack of laissez faire ( “leave it alone and it will work itself out” which means equilibrium is the natural state and shifts in supply and demand will bobble the economy but not devastate it), exhibited in printing more paper dollars thus reducing the value of the dollar only perpetrates inflation. Why he can’t see that baffles me. He’s got PhD-advisers who have spent thousands of hours studying economics and they can’t see it? Why can’t we ever learn from history? Why is human nature so ego-centric that we must believe that even though it happened in the past, we’re smarter now and we can keep it from happening. Poppycock!
So, Dr. Jeremiah, I salute you. Please keep voicing your opinion and I will keep praying for your safety and for the safety of these great United States.
