Barack Obama: America’s Judas?

Let’s not mince words; if Harry Reid was not at the helm of the predominantly Democratic Senate, the two-thirds majority it takes to impeach a president, would today, be a cinch to produce.

Americans are fed up with the lawless president and his make-believe top lawman, Eric Holder.

The trade of five of the worst terrorists in the world held prisoner at Gitmo for one army deserter may be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Articles, videos, debate, and news coverage is exploding across the entire spectrum of the media ranging from disappointment to calls for impeachment and actual jail time for treason.

On a very serious level, some are calling for Barack Obama to be charged with treason for aiding and abetting our enemies. Some are referring to Mr. Obama as an “enemy of the American people.”

“Mad” magazine has done a spoof on the Bergdahl incident and likens his actions to the film “Saving Private Ryan.” Mad mocks Obam’a unilateral law breaking action - by calling it “Trading Private Bergdahl.”

Obama has ignored the Constitution and every measure designed to keep Americans safe, along with bypassing a law he signed himself only last year–which requires giving Congress 30 days’ notice before transferring any Gitmo prisoners. The law Obama ignored is called the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2013.

With doctors in Germany now saying that Bergdahl’s health is perfectly OK, we have another lie rolling off the lips of Barack Obama; but for most of us, we are not the slightest bit surprised.

Obama painted a picture of a beaten and abused POW who was on the brink of death. With pictures of him joining in soccer games now emerging and the recent diagnoses by doctors, what we have is simply another Obama whopper. We’ve been through these waters.

The disgrace of the president is met with a defiant proclamation that he has no apology to make for his actions. When is someone going to tell him that an apology might be good, but it is a very poor substitute for the safety of 350 million Americans who are all at risk now because five of the worst terrorists in the world have just been set free to ply their Satanically driven trade?

We may chide, deride, and aside with this president; but in the end, we have become just a bigger target for Muslim Jihadist madness.

Cartoons and spoofs abound–some rather silly, yet others intensely truthful and frightening–like the comic depiction of Barack Obama now floating around the internet. Obama is standing in front of boxes of weapons, proclaiming that he will not negotiate with terrorists. Also included is the statement “I will give them whatever they want.” After the release of the Gitmo five, the humor in this spoof becomes a cause to shudder – not to laugh.

Iran’s top Muslim leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, may not be laughing; but he wasted no time to cheerfully tell the world that “America has given up.” As the Ayatollah ranted and raved about American capitulation, a large banner hung in front of his podium prominently emblazoned with the words “America cannot do a damn thing.”

Is Revival In America No Longer Possible?

Writing of the moral decline in the US has become almost a guarantee that my articles will be tucked away in the faith section, or used as filler during days of religious observances.

Noting the backward slide into every prurient, perverted, and libidinous behavior Americans can conger is largely treated like scolding and rebuke rather than a call to return to the faith of our fathers.

Perverse thinking and behaviors are not constrained to our sexual pursuits as recent headlines attest. The bar has been lowered or removed completely for some activities that in times past would have been unthinkable – how about these for example?

Veterans slam New York Times piece linking vets to hate groups

Obama Admin Will Consider Pardons for Thousands of Drug Offenders; Networks Ignore?

Harry Reid Calls Bundy Ranch Supporters ‘Domestic Terrorists’

Obamaland: Where Cowboys are Villains and Race-Baiters, Gay Radicals and Marxists are Heroes

Most news headlines do not include what goes on in the realms of churches and religion, but that too has become almost unbelievable. For the first time in our history, one African-based denomination has decided to send missionaries to the U.S. to help us pull out of our rapid decline.

In England, the Anglicans are being sued to force their church to recognize and perform gay marriages.

Who could have seen the day when the words of the beloved hymn ‘Faith of Our Fathers’, penned by famous Anglican minister and lyricist Frederick Faber, would serve to mock both the British and the Americans?

 

Faith of our fathers, we will strive

To win all nations unto Thee;

And through the truth that comes from God,

We all shall then be truly free.

 

Refrain

 

Faith of our fathers, holy faith!

We will be true to thee till death

“Strive to win all nations to thee”? This idea is now replaced with the academically sanctioned dismissal of God, gay agenda indoctrination, and mealy mouthed churches raising the white flag of apostasy and condescension. But not all!

Bill O’Reilly shrugs off the plunge into the gay “marriage” battle as social inevitability due to the emergent acceptance of it into the fabric of our nation (and yet, he still dares to refer to himself as a “culture warrior.”)

Take a hint from your noble friends in the Wounded Warrior Project, Bill – real warriors never give in or give up!

Bill is typical of right wingers and conservatives who today value the vote and the popularity more than the future of the nation. To concede assures their future – it threatens ours more than they may ever know.

Actor Tommy Lee Jones is seen in a TV commercial asking the question – “Will your money outlive your retirement?” Then along comes William Devane urging us to secure our future by purchasing big silver and gold, with a nice safe to store it in if you will make a minimum purchase.

The best preachers and faithful voices of the gospel are gladly stepping up to announce that silver and gold will fail, and your money will not secure your future in today’s powder keg of worldwide unrest. Even those poorly equipped to handle eschatology (second coming doctrine) are  resounding the call to return – yes, to the faith of our fathers!

Obama’s High-Level Hypocrisy At National Prayer Breakfast





Obama Program Michelle SC

If Mr. Obama had an honest advisor anywhere in his cabinet or staff, they would no doubt urge him to either fire his speech writer, or grow a conscience, after hearing his pathetic attempt at solemnity at the last National Prayer gathering in Washington D.C. on February 6, 2014.

The transcripts of that speech are available on the White House press website. Among those who fearlessly called the President out for his unbridled hypocrisy are two noteworthy journalists and websites.

Mychal Massie of the Daily Rant wrote a piece titled “Obama Thinks Abortion Is God’s Will” in which he holds nothing in reserve. In a scathing barrage of honesty, Massie lambastes the hypocrite-in-chief for his blaring doublespeak.

Massie called out the unbridled hypocrisy of the president saying -

Obama said, “the killing of the innocent” is the “ultimate betrayal of God’s will.” He continued: “Extremists succumb to an ignorant nihilism that shows they don’t understand the faiths they claim to profess, for killing the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will. In fact, it is the ultimate betrayal of God’s will.” But, as Penny noted, Obama “was talking terrorism, not abortion.” Which brings me to my thoughts.

Obama had the audacity before God Almighty to proclaim to all who were listening that, in his mind, unborn children are not humans, and he sees nothing wrong with slaughtering millions of unborn children every year.

Bethany Monk of CitizenLink offered an analytical breakdown on the various battles that religious leaders are having with the White House over HHS policy on abortifacients and abortion.

The CitizenLink article, “Take Action: Policy Experts Question Obama’s ‘Religious Freedom’ Remarks” includes a plea for the president to re-examine the attack he and the HHS are making on the dignity of the now famous “Little Sisters of the Poor.” Attention was drawn to this hypocrisy by Focus of the Family’s Judicial Analyst Bruce Hausknecht.

CitizenLink provides a link for anyone who desires to send an email to the President to urge him to stop the Health and Human Services (HHS) Mandate requiring businesses to provide contraceptives and possible abortion-inducing drugs to their employees under their respective insurance plans.

Several things become clear in the Obama speech; but there is nothing new there in terms of what we already knew about the president’s theology, (his Christianity or the lack of it), and his contradictory policies.

For the purposes of this article, we will simply enumerate the most outstanding hypocritical statements made by the president, even while he is no doubt the most hostile president to religious freedoms that has occupied the White House since this nation began.

Over 90 lawsuits are presently being levied against Obama’s HHS in our judicial system to stop the president’s attack on the religion he was allowed to address as if he were a member in good standing.

Two things worthy of note for anyone grounded in the scriptures are that the president’s theology is anything but biblical. His broad inclusivity of all religions sounds like he barely passed ‘comparative religion 101.’

His view of Christianity centers in on the social gospel alone, such as the fight against poverty or HIV/AIDS. The moral teachings of the New Testament seem to fly over his head like a flock of geese headed for the tropics.

For this author, one of the most egregious hypocrisies found in his speech is his using a quote from the New Testament book of Romans:

So each time we gather, it’s a chance to set aside the rush of our daily lives; to pause with humility before an Almighty God; to seek His grace; and, mindful of our own imperfections, to remember the admonition from the Book of Romans, which is especially fitting for those of us in Washington: “Do not claim to be wiser than you are.”

What incredible audacity! This quote is taken from Romans 12: 16b in the New Revised Standard version. What? Isn’t this the same book of the New Testament that Barack Obama claimed was not to be taken seriously, especially on the subject of homosexuality?

The verse he did quote at the breakfast, “Do not claim to be wiser than you are,” should be applied to his take on the passage from the same book he seeks to dismiss. Selective theology is not new among politicians, but this is beyond bad – it is indeed high hypocrisy.

Finally, there is one statement that begs to be exposed for exactly what it is. Here is exactly what he said, followed by several examples of how he is doing just the opposite in practice and policy.

Extremists succumb to an ignorant nihilism that shows they don’t understand the faiths they claim to profess — for the killing of the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will; in fact, it’s the ultimate betrayal of God’s will.

Since Barack Obama took office, slightly under 1, 400,000 perfectly healthy unborn and completely ‘innocent’ babies have been destroyed and mercilessly ripped from the womb. It is obvious that Barack Obama does not see himself as a betrayer of God’s will. In fact, he is the headline betrayer of the hour.

Pastor Saeed Abedini, whose name Barack dropped at the prayer meeting, was an innocent man seeking to start orphanages in Iran. He now languishes, in poor health, in an Iranian prison; but Fox News reported that his name was never mentioned at the table where the lifting of the Iranian sanctions was negotiated. This is more hypocrisy and some whopping big lies to season the pot.

Other innocents whose lives could have been saved are as follows:

  • Ambassador Stevens
  • Glen Dougherty
  • Sean Smith
  • Tyrone Woods
  • Brian Terry
  • Jaime Zapata

Add to the list of innocents any young person who is inclined to believe the idea fostered by the president that homosexuals are born that way. They subsequently may choose a deviant lifestyle encouraged by the most ludicrous pop-culture PC error of our generation.

At the return of the Lord, when cities and nations are judged severely, the standard of judgment will not be Mr. Obama’s petted and eclectically chosen Sermon on the Mount. The standard will be the two cities overrun with homosexuals and deviants, to wit:

“And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.” (Mr 6: 11)

The introduction of laws, legislation, and/or pop-culture inclinations of the day can’t ever be allowed to change the complete counsel of God, even if they are introduced by a president.

Laughter and applause was heard twelve times during Obama’s Prayer Breakfast address. At the Day of Judgment, no one will be heard laughing or applauding the error they have happily allowed today. The same Jesus who delivered the Sermon on the Mount also said:

“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” (Mt 15: 8-9)

To ignore, gloss over, or cover-up the path and the means by which these people met their deaths is a betrayal – the very kind of betrayal the president was so vehemently decrying.

This makes everything he said at the prayer breakfast a complete farce.

Sorry O’Reilly: Phil Robertson Was Biblically Sound





OReilly and duck

Friday December 20, 2013 O’Reilly and Bernie Goldberg are found laying down their opinions and final arbitration along with full solutions for the Duck Dynasty controversy.

Goldberg repeats the phrase ‘despicable’ and leaves the audience convinced that Dynasty’s Phil Robertson is a young earth idiot who should be dragged out, tarred and feathered and left for dead. What little respect this writer had for pundit Goldberg has now been, all but, completely dissolved.

Perennially plebed pundit Goldberg will have none of creation science’s latest discoveries that put the age of earth in doubt. But it is his attraction to the just be nice pabulum of the PC prone that is like a flashback to the Get Smart TV series. Secret agent 86 bemoans the fact that the talents of evil people have been wasted because they were not used for goodness and niceness.

O’Reilly, who probably has no idea what ‘plenary verbal’ inspiration means, has more than once raised himself above the word of God in his book ‘Killing Jesus’ and many times on his Factor rants, Bill has assured the public, contrary to the scriptures, that Jesus did not forgive his crucifiers as he hung dying on the cross. (Lk 23: 34)

O’Reilly, no doubt knows what the meaning or error is, but he may want to look up the word ‘pompous’ and use it as the ‘word of the day.’

Using the most often quoted verse of scripture the non-believer loves to quote to silence the call to repent of bad behaviors, O’Reilly pulls out the old standby – “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” (Mt 7: 1)

Now, it’s complete, Phil was judging – he is despicable, and the gays are off the hook. God is wishy washy and while homosexuality was an abomination (Lev 20: 13) to God in times past. God has now gotten up to speed with science and grown up a little along with the rest of civilization and now he’s changed his mind – now he is come fully into the twenty first century.

That’s the gist of Bill and Bernie’s baloney, but better theology begs to be given a hearing.

The Duck Dynasty patriarch’s theology is both biblical and sound and when compared to larger than life news anchor Bill O’Reilly’s ‘don’t judge’ rubber ducky theology – the difference is almost laughable.

As a Louisianan I have to offer Mr. O’Reilly a ‘lagniappe’ which is something Phil Robertson is no doubt familiar with and O’Reilly could really use.

It’s simple but profound; it is theological, but a comprehensible concept, without which, anyone seeking the meaning of God’s word would be completely sunk. Let’s see.

It would be easy to get very general and declare that the word of God does not change with the nascent morality of the day. Pop culture derived morality is what brings the world into judgment with God.

The most important, scripture based theology you may ever hear in your life is offered here and passing it by will be the most destructive thing anyone can do. It is not based on my personal theology, and although I’ve made it my own, it is based on sound theology that is reflected in every word of the Bible. It is replete, thematic and recurring throughout the scriptures.

(A) The description of licentious and generally sinful behaviors that the bible provides, including homosexuality, are given not to judge people, but they are there so people will not have to be judged by God.

(B) Declaring that these behaviors are sinful is committed to men and women who in their deep concern are urged, and or commanded to tell others so they will avoid the consequences of their sinfulness. It is not about judging people, it is about leading them to the place of repentance. It is a life saver, not an anchor, with which to drown the sinner with guilt.

A fierce, angry, condemning spirit of character assassination and disdain never work for those called to tell others about their worst behaviors. What we also know is that not everyone is endowed with well-honed diplomatic powers of persuasion. The result is that some people sound like they are judging, while others sound like they are impleading their hearers.

It is hard for anyone to tell another that their behavior is in conflict with God. Yet, it will always be a tool that must be engaged until the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Perhaps we should all be thankful that the calling was not laid on all of us that we see put upon the prophet Ezekiel when he was called to address the sinfulness of the nation of Israel. To wit:

“When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.” (Eze 3: 18)

Finally, it must be fully noted that the idea of homosexuality being some obscure ancient problem that was addressed by an extravagant and homophobic writer of the Old Testament as an abomination; is a viewpoint rife with error when it is seen that whatever God calls an abomination does not fare well in the end of all things.

In the very last book of the bible, abominable behaviors are summarized and it turns out they are one of the big ticket busters regarding entrance into heaven. Isn’t that what Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson was talking about?

“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” (Rev 21: 27)





No 1st Amendment Rights For “Duck Dynasty” Star – Who’s Next?





Bill Of Rights One Word Change SC

A gaggle of pundits joined Sean Hannity on his show Thursday night and debated whether “Duck Dynasty”’s Phil Robertson had stepped over the great unseen line to insult the sensitivities of the LGBT, gays in general, and the newly forming army of last day’s reprobates in our nation of pop culture sleaze.

Robertson has been canned for correctly paraphrasing the contents of a book in the Bible written to the church of Corinth by the Apostle Paul. To wit:

“Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1Co 6: 9-10 NIV)

In the Hannity debate, one idea kept coming to the fore that seemed like a reasonable answer. The suggestion was made that rather than waiting for huge groups of “Dynasty” fans to boycott the A&E show, the entire “Dynasty” cast should walk out together in protest.

The Bible Robertson is so willing to stand on also covers the subject of quitting – that too is also not allowed among the faithful.

Believers are told to hold fast to God’s word and live out the examples Christ gave in the face of all sorts of adversity and resistance, which would include the loss of jobs and careers.

Have Phil Robertson’s First Amendment rights to freedom of religion and freedom of speech been violated? And is the suspension from the A&E show a violation of the law?

In fact, it is; and not even the LGBT with its emerging new favor among the fallen and fickle of the nation have the right to deny Robertson’s civil rights. This one should be tested in the courts, but not in the court of public opinion.

Should Phil turn over and die, or stand and fight this abuse of power fostered by the trends of the new left louses of lust and looseness?

Over nine million fans of “Duck Dynasty” will now have to submit to the collective spanking the LGBT (and others in the new school of law by sensitivities and trends) doles out for them until the matter is completely resolved.

Robertson’s comments were not made on his show, but were part of an interview with GQ magazine.

Phil is quoted for saying, “start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. – don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Robertson also said, “It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Let’s see. Robertson’s quoted the Bible accurately, he expressed a pretty logical analysis or exegesis of the scripture passage, and he was well within his First Amendment rights of expression.

For this, he is labeled a ‘homophobe’ and loses his job.

Did this happen in America?

Let’s rein this nonsense in. It is clearly time to admit that those throwing around the derogatory term ‘homophobe’ have become ‘truthophobes.’

The great moral decline the Bible warns about in the last days has a unique element to it. When homosexuality is addressed, it is followed by a warning that it is birthed by the effort to remove all the specifics about rampant immorality, not just from the scene, but from the very mind and consciences of all men.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient” (Ro 1: 28)

The LGBT and GLAAD have done a marvelous job of indoctrinating this weak-minded, pop culture-driven generation; but even they should pause and take a look at the Constitution of the United States because even in this troubled hour, the First Amendment is still there.

The Bible is still here as well, and it does not agree that gays were born that way. It does, however, intimate that they have got themselves a good helping of last days devils to promote their position in the public.

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” (Rev 16: 13-14)
