In the following clip, Obama tells the National Prayer Breakfast: “My Christian faith then has been a sustaining force for me over these last few years.”
So there you have it. Obama talked about his Christian faith. It must make him a Christian. Why he might even be almost as great a Christian as his predecessor, Bush Almighty.
Whether or not Obama is a Christian is not my call. That is between him and God. And that is not what this is about. Rather, it is about the gullibility of the American people.
In 2000, when he was running for president, Gubna Dubya was asked what philosopher influenced his thinking the most. He responded: “Well, it’s Jesus Christ because he touched my heart.” That was all that millions of professing Christians needed. Even though he almost never talked about Jesus after that, they made him the object of endless adulation and adoration. Not only was he, like, the most totally awesomest Christian ever, but also, to paraphrase Sting, every little thing he did was Christian.
As Chuck Baldwin once put it, “they (wanted) to add Bush to the Holy Trinity.”
Jesus told His followers to beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing and to know people by their fruits – Matthew 7:15-20. The fruit on Bush’s tree included unprovoked war (1) and the wholesale mass murder of innocents, torture, warrantless searches and spying, guilt without trial and doing nothing to stop the abortion holocaust. (2) He told the media that we all worship the same God, even though John 14:6 and Acts 4:12 say otherwise. He celebrated Ramadan at the White House.
The last thing these Bush groupies wanted was to be confused with the facts about Our Great Christian President. He said one thing about Jesus one time on the campaign trail and that negated absolutely everything else.
Now that Obama has openly professed his Christian faith, will these same Bush groupies now stop seething with hatred toward Obama and prostrate themselves before him like they did Bush?
When I ponder the fact that so many Christians were so infatuated with Bush and so unconditionally supportive of everything he did, I know exactly why God has allowed an Obama presidency – Daniel 2:21.
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:”
– Amos 8:11
This is exactly what has happened in America. Only in a land of rampant biblical illiteracy could so many people who call themselves Christians be so hopelessly deceived by a man like Dubya. Only in such a land could so many people who say that they worship the Prince of Peace be such bloodthirsty warmongers.
When the Disciples asked Jesus what will be the sign of His Coming and of the end of the world, Jesus replied: “Take heed that no man deceive you.” – Matthew 24:3-4.
By “no man”, Jesus meant just that: NO MAN! Not even Bush. Not even Obama.
Revelation 13:3 tells us that the whole world will one day idolize a political ruler. The personality cults surrounding Bush and Obama are part of what I call the Big Ramp-Up to the fulfillment of this prophecy.
(1) The proper, moral, constitutional response to things like 9/11 is a “Letter of Marque and Reprisal.” This is a sort of warrant to pursue the specific perpetrators.
(2) And, no, he wasn’t a “conservative” at all. He outspent Kommunist Klinton by $1 trillion per year.
