After six years of Barack Obamaâ€™s fervent pro-abortion philosophy it comes as no surprise that the left is completely comfortable verbalizing their disdain for Israel and her right to life.
Liberals as a group generally err on the side of evil while attempting to portray their revulsion for everything near and dear to the heart of God as righteousness.
Think about it â€“ Barack Obama attempts to portray murderous MS-13 gang members as â€œchildrenâ€ requiring care and compassion while insisting that innocent unborn babies are not human beings, thereby sanctioning the exile of 4,000 of them to red biohazard bags a day. Continue Reading →
Jesus told His followers that the way to recognize Christian brethren is by inspecting fruit.Â Â Jesus said, “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.” Â Thus, “by their fruit you will recognize them.”
At theÂ NationalÂ Prayer Breakfast, partial “bitter clinger” Barack Obama, missing only a gun, tried to tell the crowd of 3,000 that he was a Scripture-quoting, Bible-toting Christian. Â Using the Word of God to justify the advancement of liberal policy, the presidentÂ linked left-wingÂ economic policy with obedience to Scripture and, by doing so, dared critics to disagree with God.
As the foundation of his faith, Obama referenced a key Scripture from Genesis wherein God asked Cain, after Cain killed his own brother, “Where is your brother Abel?” to whichÂ Cain replied, “I don’t know, am I my brother’s keeper?”
The president said his faith is based on “[l]iving by the principle that we are our brother’s keeper. Caring for the poor and those in need.”Â He maintained that those values are the ones that define his “faith journey,” which has also translated into “policies that support research to fight disease and support foreign aid.”
Seems the president hasn’t read the ScriptureÂ that says, “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much,” because Obama-style Christianity is yet to acknowledge the glaring contradiction in wanting to be trusted with the world’s poor while disregarding the “very little” needs of a blood brother, impoverished and livingÂ in squalorÂ in a Kenya slum.
Nonetheless, the president said that his faith also inspires him to voluntarily “give up some of the tax breaks” he enjoys. Â If Obama has his way, the rest of America will not be afforded the gratification of similar voluntary charitable contributions. Â In essence, establishing governmental mandates to support liberal causes is a religion unto itself, whose dogma redirects tithing from the faith community to the federal government, where alms gatheredÂ under compulsionÂ are distributed through benevolent bureaucracy.
After the collection plate is filled, give-up-the-tax-break proceeds fund brother’s-keeper essentials like abortion, contraception, sterilization, and fighting disease with an ever-expanding food stamp program.
Barack Obama deciding to openly declare that Jesus applauds the “yes we can” brand has opened him up to public scrutiny. Â By exploiting biblical Christianity for political gain, he has invited examination from, among others, Republican presidential hopeful and devout Christian Rick Santorum, who dared broach the subject of the president’s innovative “theology.”
More recently, onÂ Morning Joe, ReverendÂ FranklinÂ Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham, a man Obama allegedlyÂ prayed with, also compared the president’s words against the backdrop of his actions.Â Based on the condition of some wormy fruit, as diplomatically as he could, Graham cast serious doubt on the state ofÂ Barack Obama’sÂ tree and expressed uncertainty as to whether the latter is really a Christian.
Graham did confirm his belief that Rick Santorum was “a man of faith … because his values are so clear on moral issues.”Â About Santorum, Graham said, “I just appreciate the moral stances he takes on things,” a sentiment Reverend Graham did not express when speaking about Barack Obama.
Under close examination, America’s self-described “Christian” president’s fruit includes anti-Christian stances such as condoning andÂ supportingÂ gay marriage, callingÂ Romans 1:26-27Â an “obscure passage,” and being vehemently pro-choice.Â The president even opposes saving the lives of infantsÂ born aliveÂ during botched abortions, which translates into infanticide.
To Christian brethren who deem contraceptive and abortion anathema, in lieu of God’s will, Obama has institutedÂ governmental doctrineÂ by foistingÂ hisÂ will on people of faith, denying those with whom he supposedly identifies the constitutional right to freedom of religion.
Someone should remind the president that immediately following the “my brother’s keeper” verse in Genesis, when Cain claimed he didn’t know the whereabouts of the brother he had murdered, theÂ Lord knewÂ and said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.”
Besides the blood of unborn children crying out from the ground, in addition to being a champion of choice, the “peacemaker” president has condoned and helped spreadÂ racial division. Â While claiming to be a follower of Christ, Obama criticizes,Â disrespects, and has all but turned his back on Israel, the “apple ofÂ God’s eye.” Â Against Isaac and the nation of Israel, Barack Hussein Obama has sided almost exclusively withÂ Ishmael.
On hisÂ first ChristmasÂ in the White House, Barack Obama requested that the Nativity scene be removed from the East Room — a request that was overridden. Â Shockingly, when speaking in Christian venues, he has also requested thatÂ the crucifix, the universal symbol of Christianity, be obscured from view. Â On more than one occasion, the president hasÂ misquoted Scripture, and while he often decries injustice toward Muslims, he has yet to speak on behalf of Christians beingÂ persecutedÂ worldwide.
FranklinÂ Graham rightlyÂ pointed outÂ that under close inspection Obama appears to have some problematic fruit. Â Graham said, “Under President Obama, the Muslims of the world, he seems more concerned about them than the Christians being murdered in the Muslim countries.”
Caring for the poor, fighting disease,Â supportingÂ foreign aid, and publicly declaring the sanctimonious attitude of being willing to give up tax breaks are the noble aspirations that President Obama claims define his pick-and-choose religion. Â Barack Obama’s customized Christianity is such that itÂ discountsÂ and mockingly downplays the SermonÂ on the MountÂ and then, in order to advance gay rights, resurrects and convolutes Jesus’ teaching of the Beatitudes.
Clearly, the President feels at ease redefining everything from “fairness” to the “American dream” to “traditional marriage,” all the way to theÂ foundational tenets that define America. Â But fear not –Â in due time, the God of the Bible will surely expose the folly of those who, inÂ an attempt to justify a liberal agenda, exploit Scripture and attempt to redefine Christianity.
The history of the Jewish people is a long and arduous one.Â At Passover, Jews who spent nearly 500 years enslaved in Egypt remember the miracle of Godâ€™s deliverance as He sent Moses with a message of hope that Godâ€™s chosen people would be released from the anguish caused by the repressive yoke of a cruel taskmaster.
The event is chronicled to have taken place in the year 1446 BC, and 3,500 years later, the Jewish people are on the cusp of being surrounded by a noose of hostile Muslim nations, including Egypt, the nation from which they were originally delivered. And what does Barack Obama compare the Passover message to?Â The struggle of extremist Muslims, a people whose core seethes with hatred toward the Jews and who, if given the chance, would forgo enslaving Israel and instead exterminate them.
When Obama hosted the last Ramadan dinner at the White House, the focus of his statement to his Muslim guests were exclusively directed toward Islamâ€™s value and contribution to Americaâ€™s history and future.Â The President ended his Iftar remarks in the following way:
For in the end, we remain â€œone nation, under God, indivisible.â€Â And we can only achieve â€œliberty and justice for allâ€ if we live by that one rule at the heart of every great religion, including Islam â€”- that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us.
For Passover this year, the President chose not to focus on Israel, a nation threatened daily by murderous hatred.Â Nor did Obama reiterate, for those whose democratic chant contains the words â€œDeath to Israel,â€ to â€œdo unto others as we would have them do unto us.â€
Obama didnâ€™t chide the Muslim extremist world for putting Israel in a position to require fresh blood over the lintels of their doors to guard against imminent destruction, but instead decided that Passover was the perfect time to express how Godâ€™s deliverance of the Jews is â€œreflected in Muslim uprisings.â€
The story of Passoverâ€¦instructs each generation to remember its past, while appreciating the beauty of freedom and the responsibility it entails. This year that ancient instruction is reflected in the daily headlines as we see modern stories of social transformation and liberation unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.
This year, Obama failed to make the connection between Passover and the Jewish nationâ€™s ongoing struggle for survival. Presented with an opportunity to deliver a Mosaic message of warning to the Arab world to release Godâ€™s chosen people from the bondage of hatred, Barack Hussein chose instead to create an inappropriate bond between the miracle of the Creator making clear that Yahweh would move Heaven and Earth on behalf of His chosen people, and the Muslim uprisings.
As Jewish families gather for this joyous celebration of freedom, let us all be thankful for the gifts that have been bestowed upon us, and let us work to alleviate the suffering, poverty, injustice, and hunger of those who are not yet free.
In essence, Obama stressing the plight of Muslims on Passover would be like lecturing the Jews, midway through the Red Sea, on the injustice of bloody water, dead frogs, gnats, flies, sick cows, boils, wild weather, locusts and darkness, or the tragic death of the first-born son ofÂ Pharaoh Amenhotep II .
With that in mind, what better way for the modern-day children of Israel to begin the process of agreeing to aÂ Palestinian State thanÂ by ceding exclusive rights to Passover?
In the meantime, Obama chooses to ignore school buses filled with Israeli school children being showered with Islamic rockets from Gaza and innocent Jewish families with sleeping toddlersÂ slaughtered in their beds.Â Rather than address the ongoing oppression of a nation enslaved by the threat of death on all sides, Obamaâ€™s idea of a Passover remembrance is to turn his face from Isaacâ€™s plight and once again focus attention solely on the concerns of Ishmael.
