President Obama’s Remarks at National Prayer Breakfast

obama

 

Last week during the National Prayer Breakfast,  President Obama gave a speech that included some interesting statements.  Here’s an example:

But no matter what we choose to believe, let us remember that there is no religion whose central tenet is hate.  There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being.  This much we know.”   {emphasis mine}

However, in God’s Holy Court, ALL are guilty until covered and justified by Christ’s atoning blood.

And another:

“I didn’t become a Christian until many years later, when I moved to the South Side of Chicago after college. It happened not because of indoctrination or a sudden revelation, but because I spent month after month working with church folks who simply wanted to help neighbors who were down on their luck – no matter what they looked like, or where they came from, or who they prayed to. It was on those streets, in those neighborhoods, that I first heard God’s spirit beckon me. It was there that I felt called to a higher purpose – His purpose.”   {emphasis mine}

Or…maybe the President thinks he became a ‘Christian’ because he was trained to engage in the community in which Obama was working as a ‘community organizer’.  Saul Alinsky, one of the President’s early mentors, taught in Rules for Radicals:

“There’s another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families – more than seventy million people – whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971]. They cannot be dismissed by labeling them blue collar or hard hat. They will not continue to be relatively passive and slightly challenging. If we fail to communicate with them, if we don’t encourage them to form alliances with us, they will move to the right. Maybe they will anyway, but let’s not let it happen by default.”   {emphasis mine}

And his final benediction, he says:

“So let us pray together on this February morning, but let us also work together in all the days and months ahead. For it is only through common struggle and common effort, as brothers and sisters, that we fulfill our highest purpose as beloved children of God. I ask you to join me in that effort, and I also ask that you pray for me, for my family, and for the continued perfection of our union. Thank you.”   {emphasis mine}

“…brothers and sistersbeloved children of God.’    ???    All people are NOT children of God; only true believers. 

“…perfection of our union…”  ???   Are we hearing some Dominionist rhetoric from our President?

Obama is deceived and is deceiving.

  1. I have yet to be convinced that Obama is a Christian. He doesn’t seem to understand the gospel, and he spent over 20 years in an aberrational and heretical false church.
