CHRISTIAN PURGE – The Obama Factor (Part One)
by Sharon Sebastian posted on Monday, February 13, 2012
It’s afoot. The target: Christianity. Hijack, overthrow, or purge, the Obama government is making its move. True Christianity consists of people of biblical faith who are tolerant and giving while adhering to the Judeo-Christian teachings of Jesus Christ. Rabbi Daniel Lapin of the American Alliance of Christians and Jews has witnessed the blessings of living in a Christian nation: “It is not an accident that America has provided the most tranquil level of prosperity that Jews have enjoyed for 2000 years and that is because America is a Christian nation. …I think always of America’s Bible Belt as Judaism’s safety belt.” (See page 110 – Darwin’s Racists – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, http://www.DarwinsRacists.com.) History records that true Christianity benefits nations.
Though over 75% of Americans profess to be Christian, Washington’s Liberal-Progressive leaders hold particular disdain for conservative Christian voters who steadfastly obey the biblical teachings of Jesus Christ. And, there’s the rub. True Christians always put faith before politics. To both circumvent or purge Christianity or ridicule Christians who question the left’s agenda, political instigators have three choices. The government can discredit the faith and its pastors, they can enact laws that prohibit specific Christian scripture, or they can, via Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky, infiltrate and falsely lay claim to the faith of Jesus Christ through the power of government by manipulating and counterfeiting it into something it is not, and still call it by its name – Christianity. All three strategies are currently in play. The first uses strong-arm tactics of denunciation. The public slap-down of Rev. Franklin Graham was a warning for voicing his opinion on Islam, abruptly followed by the tactic of a Presidential visit to his ailing, elderly father in his home for a photo-op. Rev. Graham expects to be arrested some day for preaching segments of the Bible. Federal laws are winding their way through a Democrat-controlled Congress, such as ENDA, that will shackle people of faith who dare to stand for their values and beliefs.
The left abhors mixing faith with politics unless it serves their agenda. Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi lays bare a blatant double standard as she now openly calls on clergy to support the Democrats’ immigration agenda. The hypocrisy is that everyone knows (including illegal immigrants) that the issue is not about faith, but about the vote in 2012 when Democrats need immigrant-amnesty to secure an additional 20+ million votes to keep Barack Obama in office. Ironically, immigrants stand to lose religious rights along with everyone else. Christianity is not a political tool. Christians’ allegiance is to Christ.
Headlines are filled with policies aimed at breaking down the family, implementing abortions as just another form of birth control, the teaching of homosexual acts to school children, and so on – all gratis of Obama and his handpicked officials. The very act of “redistributing wealth,” that Obama desires with such avarice, goes against the “10th Commandment of God” that declares we are not to covet our neighbor’s property or goods that are earned by the labor of our neighbor’s efforts. God’s word literally instructs against Socialism. Obama’s “wealth redistribution” teaches covetousness to the masses.
The President reportedly claimed Christianity through the prism of Black Liberation Theology’s politically infused doctrine of “social justice” which many call the “faith of liberal activism.” In 2008, Obama told Newsweek Magazine that he had “found Christ.” He then reportedly said, “But, I leave open the possibility that I’m entirely wrong.” I have said before that Obama’s faith is between him and His Creator. In this country, voters elect a president, not a Pope. Though religion may not factor into presidential qualifications, restraint against undermining the very faith upon which this great nation was founded does.
Mr. President and Madame Speaker, Christianity is not a call to street activism or Socialism (social justice), Christianity is a call to the Cross. Coercing or manipulating the faith towards anything else is egregious to Biblical doctrine. The Obama administration would be wise to understand that administrations come and go, but no matter how doggedly they wage war against it – the Christian faith based on salvation by Jesus Christ – does not.
