Herman Cain on Biblical References to Financial Crisis at Faith and Freedom Conference

June 3, 2011

Many of you will recognize 2nd Corinthians 4th chapter, verses 8 and 9. ‘We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed. We are perplexed, but not in despair. Persecuted but not forsaken. Cast down but not destroyed.' Could the Apostle Paul have been talking about the United States of America? Could the Apostle Paul have been talking about our friend and ally Israel? I happen to believe that those prophetic words apply to both. Because we are troubled on many sides. And in a very short period of time – two years and five months and four days and counting – this nation has become a nation of crises. We have a moral crisis. We have an economic crisis. We have an entitlement spending crisis. We have an energy crisis. We have a foggy foreign policy crisis. And we have a severe deficiency of leadership crisis in the White House.
