This post is intended for both Christians and non-Christians alike, and it is about a very important issue that needs to be clearly understood. When Obama calls himself a Christian, we need to look at his actions rather than take him at his word. And this is not my ‘opinion,’ but the word of God. Here are just a few of the passages from Scripture that speak directly to this point:
I Never Knew You
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
You Will Know Them by Their Fruits
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
If you read the Apostles letters, you will find repeated warnings to be on guard against false prophets and false teachers spreading bad doctrine within the Church, itself. This is why we are told to test everything against the spirit, and to pay attention to the fruit of a person’s works. If the fruit is not of the Spirit, then neither are they – no matter what they may claim. This is sound Scripture and can easily be supported by anyone who has a decent knowledge of the Word.
Now, let’s use this knowledge to evaluate this story:
“We sometimes see religion twisted … hatred [is waged] against people because of who they are, or how they pray, or who they love,” he said. ”[Extremists] don’t understand the faiths they claim to profess. The killing of the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will. In fact, it’s the ultimate betrayal of God’s will.”
Now, Obama is correct: Scripture does say that killing the innocent is against God’s commandments. However, Obama has demonstrated that the fruit of his works – his support for abortion – contradicts Scripture and breaks God’s commands. What’s more, when Obama implies that it is wrong to hate the act of homosexuality, he is again – by his works – demonstrating that he stands in opposition to God’s commands. Read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Then there is this:
No Christian would make this mistake because Islam is anti-Christ. Islam specifically denies the divinity of Christ and the Trinity, and Scripture teaches us that this is the Spirit of anti-Christ. It also borders on the unforgivable sin. So, why would Obama make such a mistake? Because he is not a Christian:
Again, it is not possible to be a Christian and a Muslim at the same time. However, Islam does allow Obama to lie for the purposes of furthering Islam!
Now, with this in mind, ask yourself whether or not these and other related stories make more sense?
None of this is consistent with Christian doctrine, but it is consistent with the Constitutional definition of treason:
To wage war against or provide material aid and/or comfort to an enemy waging war against the United States of America.
Scripture teaches us to obey the laws of the government to which we are subject, but it also teaches us that we are to obey God first – even if it means disobeying the ruler of that government. As a Christian, you cannot follow a leader who is clearly demonstrating a spirit of anti-Christ. When this happens in the Church, the Apostle Paul tells us we are to put that person out of the Church and leave him to Satan in hope that he or she will come to their senses and repent. But Obama is not part of the body of Christ; his actions show that this cannot be true. And because he is demonstrating a spirit of anti-Christ, he cannot be considered to be in right standing as a ruler under God’s law. And for these and many more related reasons, God’s people must resist this man.
But please note: this does not mean to wage war against him. That is not what Scripture says. Scripture tells us to use the laws, and that means vote, petition, amend and – if necessary – push for a new Constitution. But it also means that, should the time come, you must chose to obey God – even if it means imprisonment and death. The early brethren went to the lions because they refused to obey Caesar’s command to renounce God, but obeyed God’s command to submit to the law. This is what Roman’s 13 is all about.
