Bill Keller is this on fire-for-the-Lord internet evangelist who founded LivePrayer.com. I have known Bill for about five years and believe him to be a take-no-prisoners, Bible believing, Bible teaching man. He is not one to see a problem and cower away from it, he attacks it. He was criticized years ago for going on Howard Stern. But Bill handled Howard Stern and because of his appearances on Stern’s show, literally thousands came to the Lord, recommitted their lives to the Lord and thanked Bill for being so bold as to bring Christ to Stern’s airwaves. He has the emails and letters to prove it. Now Bill is off on another mission–to counter the Islamic Center and Mosque to be built near Ground Zero in New York.
Bill says, “How do you battle the darkness? With the LIGHT! I watched in disbelief a few weeks ago as they announced the Muslims would be building a $110 million mosque just a few blocks from where their Muslim brothers perpetrated the greatest act of terror on US soil in history, deliberately flying planes into the World Trade Center towers, knocking them down and killing 3,000 innocent souls in the process. The gall, the arrogance, the audacity of this false religion of violence, hate, and death to build their temple to satan just blocks from that hallowed ground.” So Bill decided to do something about it.
Beginning this Sunday, September 5, he will begin having services at the “9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero.” He will be holding services every Sunday at 11 am at the New York Marriott at 85 West Street–one block from ground zero. There will be services 7 days a week and a “9-11 Memorial Prayer Room” for those who visit Ground Zero and want to stop and pray. Bill says, “The mission is simple. Have a place at ground zero where people can come to hear the real uncompromised Truth right from God’s Word, and find the only true hope there is, faith in Jesus Christ!!!” He said he is not starting just another church–services will be like the soul winning “old time evangelistic meetings.”
The opposition to this new church is tremendous. Bill wrote in his daily email that “every left leaning website has been covering our opening. It is amazing how they all could not wait to support the victory mosque, but have gone after me with a vengeance, calling me every horrible name you could think of in the process.” But these attempts to discourage only make Bill Keller more determined. He says, “I have a secret to share with you today. The people in this world are looking for hope.” The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 12:21, “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.” This is an example of how we as Christians can change the world if we are obedient to the Lord.
