Despite anything a Hollywood “comedian” might tell you, or some common artist who paints the President as dying on a cross, newsflash: Barack Obama is not the Savior.
Comedian Jamie Foxx made remarks at a recent awards show that I can’t even repeat because the Christian in me cannot abide the blasphemous, but the basic gist was a deification of the utterly mortal Barack Obama.
Hypocrisy and blasphemy amongst Tinsel Town’s elite is nothing new. It is ironic that these liberal “celebrities” decry the uber-wealthy and say they need to pay their “fair share.” Yet these people, paid millions of dollars, are the rich that they seem to hold in such disdain. They hold fundraisers that you and I couldn’t afford to attend unless we were willing to give up a year’s salary (assuming we were employed, no thanks to this administration). However, even by Hollywood’s “standards,” Mr. Foxx’s declaration would appear to be a new low.
I’ve long warned family and friends who are Democrats, yet claim to be Christians, to be careful in their support of Mr. Obama. I’ve quoted Scripture. I’ve talked about the Bible’s admonition about those with “hands swift to shed innocent blood,” and how then-Senator Obama not only supported abortion, but voted four separate times to continue the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. I’ve quoted book, chapter and verse about homosexuality. I’ve expressed concern at the Democrat’s attempt to “vote God out” of their party, and how they booed Him at their convention. Now this.
Proverbs 6:27 says, “Can a man take fire in his bosom and his clothes not be burned?” Christians, with this devotion to a mere man, you are playing with fire!
Noah spoke for 120 years before the flood, and only 8 listened to him and were saved (1 Peter 3:20). When do people who say that they believe in God begin to show it and say “enough?” Nobody is saying you should run on down and register as a Republican, but can a person of “faith” in all good conscience remain a card carrying Democrat?
The contrast between the Son of God and Barack Obama could not be clearer:
Jesus was perfect and without sin, and was the only One in the history of mankind who could claim this.
Jesus was crucified. In Matthew 20:20-28, the mother of James and John came to Jesus seeking places of honor for her sons. Jesus said, ‘You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?’ (meaning his manner of death by crucifixion, one considered shameful and reserved for criminals).
Regardless of what you may think about the President’s treatment in conservative media, Mr. Obama is alive and well. He has not been physically beaten or flogged by angry people who then made him carry a wooden cross on his blood-stained back along a public pathway leading to a place where he had stakes hammered into his body, put up on display for all to see, hanging between two thieves.
Jesus has a church. Though I know many who worship at the “altar of Obama,” they are deluded. That brutal death I described above was that of Jesus Christ, and the resulting death of this perfect and sinless God-man is what purchased our freedom from sin, places us in His church, and offers the hope of eternal life.
Jesus can affect our eternal destination, whether that be Heaven or Hell. This blind devotion to Barack Obama might land you in Hell over stuff like the current foolishness in equating him with the Savior, but the President cannot grant you entrance into Heaven.
God condemns worship of any other. In the Old Testament, we have the command that we “have no other gods.” Note the “little g” ‘god’ in contrast to the “big G” God!
Growing up, many of us heard of great Bible heroes like Moses and Elijah. However, Luke 9:27-36 tells us that when Peter saw these two great men talking to our Lord, he wanted to build monuments to all three. God didn’t even let Peter finish expressing the thought, but put the kibosh on the idea by saying, ‘This is my Chosen One, hear Him!’
If you are willing to follow some human being, you really should follow someone who can remit your sins, and grant you an eternal home. And guess what, Left? It’s ….FREE!
