ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., July 16 /Christian Newswire/ -- The world's leading Internet evangelist, Bill Keller - founder of Liveprayer.com and the host of the Liveprayer TV program - has launched the Jonah Project to call the United States to repent, or face the judgment of God. In much the same way as the word delivered by the prophet Jonah 2900 years ago to the ancient city of Nineveh, Keller claims the Lord has called him to warn the nation to turn back to God and Biblical values, or experience His judgment for our sins and wickedness.
Keller - who officially launched the Jonah Project on Monday, July 7th - says a key component of the project will be taking his successful television program to the nation, live, on a major secular network for an hour every Monday through Friday. In addition, a new radio program will be heard live for two hours each weekday on secular stations across the nation. The launch date for the nationwide TV and radio programs is Monday, October 6, 2008. The networks and stations carrying the Liveprayer program will be announced at a special press conference on Monday, September 8, 2008.
In addition to the 2.4 million opt-in subscribers who read the Daily Devotional Keller has written 365 days a year since Liveprayer began in August of 1999, Keller has been a maverick on secular television these past six years. His program - a highly rated, unique, live call-in format that deals from a Biblical worldview with world issues as well as those in people's lives - has aired exclusively on major secular network affiliates in Florida, and for a brief time nationally in 2006. This breaks the typical preaching/teaching program mold established by other ministries of producing primarily for the Christian television market.
Keller sees the Jonah Project as much more than just a call to this nation to repent or face the judgment of God. He believes the Jonah Project is going to be a format for millions of true followers of Christ to come together, and have a true voice in the mainstream media, while mobilizing action to attend to the social ills of our day.
"It is a relatively few number of people who have made the sin of homosexuality mainstream, legalized the killing of babies, removed God from the public forum, and been responsible for the proliferation of pornography and gambling," laments Keller. "Through the Jonah Project - for the first time in a meaningful way - we are going to mobilize millions of true followers of Jesus Christ, and witness many of these social ills that plague our nation wiped out!"
"In the past, attempts to mobilize Christians has been for political, not spiritual, purposes," adds Keller. "We aren't bringing Christians together to elect people we agree with to office, but rather to have our voice heard and our views represented in the culture, and to exercise our beliefs just as those who oppose Biblical values have exercised their beliefs on our society."
Keller sees a byproduct of the Jonah Product not only being a move back to God and Biblical values in this nation, but in other nations around the world. He hopes to unleash a spiritual revival that will bring millions of people around the globe to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.
