Christians Pray To Golden Bull For Better Economy

Cindy Jacobs, a self-claimed "prophet" fond of appearing on cable tv religion channels, has declared October 29th "Day of Prayer for the World’s Economies" and is asking Christians all over the world to stop what they're doing and ask God to improve their IRA balance.

They are calling for prayer for the stock markets, banks, and financial institutions of the world on the date the stock market crashed in 1929. They are meeting at the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and its 12 principal branches around the US that day.

“We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the 'Lion’s Market,' or God’s control over the economic systems,” she said. “While we do not have the full revelation of all this will entail, we do know that without intercession, economies will crumble.”

Cindy is encouraging prayer groups to intercede for banks and financial institutions in your area. Cindy says each of us has to be accountable to the Lord.

“Don’t think you’re going to be in sin and that God will take care of you in these hard economic times. Holiness is key,” Cindy said. Each of us has a part to play and should not think that God will indiscriminately bless us without us dealing with personal areas that are wrong. We must repent of any misuse of money, think before we spend, get out of debt, etc., and allow God to do a course correction for us.

Bow to the Golden Bull

Christians worshipping at the altar of the Golden Calf. I'm lovin' this. If Obama wins in a Dem landslide they will know their prayers were answered.

Guys, you missed the entire point. That giant bull is a “bad thing.” It is a symbol of the current economic structure that she believes God wants to change. It has nothing to do with “everyone getting rich.” They weren’t praying to the bull. It was just a point of contact representing a thing that God wants to change. I mean, don’t you think God wants to be involved in every aspect of our lives, including the financial structure of our nation. Please, before you make yourself look foolish, get the facts.

But why would they need to gather around a bull to pray?

God's everywhere, right? And he's supposed to hear your prayers no matter where or who you are.
Why wold they need a symbol to focus their religious expressions?

There is something very fitting in this imagery.

It begins with the assumption that the sovereign creator and master of the universe needs the pleadings of ego-driven followers to enable him/her/it to affect the course of history.

It ends with religious egg on the faces of those idiots, having bowed down in front of a golden calf on the world stage.

Go God!
