Does anyone know where we went wrong? It is impossible to deny that we have gone wrong somewhere. I hear voices on every side telling the government what to do, but I am left with the sinking feeling that no one knows what to do. We have been sailing happily on our way, looking for all the world like the richest nation the anyone has ever seen. And then we find that it is all debt, all borrowed money. And when we found out there was no collateral for all that stuff, everything comes unglued.

If we had a prophet show up in our streets, the day after tomorrow, what would he say was the root of our problem? I am not sure God would even speak to us, but if a Jeremiah showed up somewhere and laid it on the line from God, what would he say? Jeremiah went day after day to the most public place he could find. I don’t think he would even speak to the proximate causes or our financial mess. He would go deeper than that. Because you can’t cure a disease by merely treating the symptoms.

So, if we had a real prophet show up, what would he say? Well, here’s something God said through a prophet to nation very much like us.
