California Pastor Steven Andrew is saying the only way to cure the nation’s economic woes is to vote for either former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum or Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann for president.

“Americans have to decide: Do we want God’s blessings or judgments?” said Andrew in a statement released on Wednesday. “Like our founding fathers, Bachmann and Santorum include God in government, want pro-life laws and uphold God’s marriage of one man and one woman. The other candidates have flip-flopped on these most important issues that God says determine Americans’ future.”

Andrew, who is the president of USA Christian Ministries and the author of Making A Strong Christian Nation, is making his appeal less than a week before the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3 and most all of the GOP candidates are making strong, last-minute pitches to shore up the state’s evangelical voters.

Santorum has spent months crisscrossing the Hawkeye state, and was the first candidate to visit all 99 counties. Last week, he received the personal support of noted evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats, president of The Family Forum, a conservative pro-family group that hosted the Thanksgiving Forum last month in Des Moines.

However, Vander Plaats’ endorsement was clouded in controversy after allegations were made that he suggested to Santorum that his campaign donate funds to help cover the cost of promoting the endorsement – indicating a possible pay-for-play arrangement.

In addition, Bachmann claimed that Vander Plaats asked her to get out of the race and throw her support either behind Perry or Santorum. She refused, saying she has consistently polled higher than Santorum and is better equipped than Perry to defeat President Obama in 2012.

In the latest CNN/Time Poll released on Wednesday afternoon, Santorum has seen a huge jump and is now in third place with 16 percent, while Bachmann is coming in two points behind Perry at 9 percent.

More interestingly is that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has spent virtually no time or effort trying to attract Christian voters, is leading with 25 percent of those polled. Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who is running a series of pro-life ads and advocates “isolationist” foreign policy positions, is second at 22 percent.

“Bachmann and Santorum are strong government leaders,” said Andrew. “They are more skilled than Barack Obama, who wants over $5 trillion of debt and is unashamed to sin against God. People understand that God judges nations who shed innocent blood in abortion and promote homosexual sin as Obama does.”
