NO One Has Done More To Splinter The Modern Traditional Christian Church Than President Obama...

Updated on July 16, 2013

No One Has done More To Splinter The Modern Traditional Christian Church Than President Obama…

Almost four years ago, when Senator Obama ran for President and the passion for his candidacy was white hot… I sat with my brother in my sister’s home witnessing and discussing what Senator Obama was doing to the church we attend. There were spirited debates in my church among many of the members on certain hot button moral social issues held by Senator Obama… that were diametrically opposed to many of the Traditional Bible teachings - it was then too that my brother and I surmised and extrapolated that our Senator from Illinois was doing the same splintering to other churches in these United states.

Many of those same social issues that many Traditional Christians railed against were excused because of the epochal import of having the first African American running and winning the Presidency; it did not matter that President Obama embraced and supported abortion rights and a spate of other issues anathema to Traditional Christian principles. One thing I can say then about Senator Obama, he did not hide his position on many of these issues, which made it more so disheartening because many Traditional Christians were privy to such information and still cast their votes for him.

Many of us basically sold out our Christian principles for racial pride – just imagine that Jesus was preaching the Gospel and someone else was preaching what was tantamount to Apostasy… it would have been like my supporting the Apostate Gospel because the conveyor was Black and refusing Jesus’ Gospel because He is Jewish. That is what happened during Senator Obama’s run for President and it is still happening during his run for a second term. I recalled my church Bishop placing the various positions Senator Obama held on the church’s walls/boards and having these papers on the President positions forcefully ripped off said walls/boards… then and now, the message was clear whereby the tenets of the Bible should give way to racial pride – in the same vein, it is why Kwanzaa is replacing Christmas in many of our social settings and I suspect in some Black churches… Kwanzaa will soon be given equal footing with Christmas.

I have learned not to mention President Obama even when he supports and helps to enact laws that are against Traditional Christian Principles. I have sat and explained to some in my church and even showed them the proof and many would say that what I showed them was fabricated, yet, in the past they would have taken my counsel if it were about President Bush. Long time ago, I wrote that if one reads his or her Bible… he or she can peep for whom to vote for because no candidate’s race or ethnicity takes precedence over the Word of God. Another marked barometer to know where one stands… on the moral issues is to look at that candidate’s support in Hollywood – almost everything the Traditional Bible stands for is apposed by Hollywood, yet overwhelmingly, the vainglorious supports President Obama. There is wisdom in the tried and true saying beware of the company you keep; Traditional Christians must look at the company our President keeps… and the groups who vote for him, even though he winks at his supporters and tell us tales like how he does not believe in abortion or gay marriage.

In our Bible, 2 Corinthians 11:14… we are told that Satan will appear as an angel of light and, also, that in the Book of Matthew 22: 24, we also told that Satan will be so convincing that if God did not shorten the time… that even Christians themselves would succumb. President Obama is only flesh and blood, and, yet, he has influenced… many of us to compromise our Traditional Christian beliefs for racial pride.

      The problem with Obama really lies in the fact that he is a serial LIAR, about his beliefs, his policies and his intentions (the end justifies the means is really his religion). Any honest scrutiny of all his speeches compared to his actions demonstrates that he simply says (or should I say recites from the teleprompter) what his cohorts have calculated people want to hear and it seldom has any connection to the reality of the issues. Just check, and .

      While it may be true that African American churches voted for Obama because of race, in my short life's experience, theologically conservative white churches always seem to pull for the Republican candidate regardless of who it is because of the pro-life platform.

      I honestly think that Obama won because of the whole economic collapse thing. Had the economy not crashed at exactly the time for the election, McCain probably would've won. I think many people looked at McCain as a third term of George W. Bush, whom they blamed for the crash. Recessions/depressions do not generally bode well for the incumbent party.

      That being said, I don't think people are terribly happy with either party, hence the shift back and forth in the control of Congress. People think, the Republicans are incompetent, so let's vote in the Democrats. Then they find that the Democrats are pretty incompetent, too. So they vote back in the Republicans. I could honestly see a Democratic House with a Republican president being the outcome of the next election because of this.

      Well, this Hopey Changey thing has been working pretty good for us in a lot of different ways, hasn't it.

      There are times when one must be mute and such a time is now in light of your response to the blog because I could not have put it more succinctly....

      For all I see of this president, never once has that image come across as that of an "African American". He may possess the skin tone but that is where the similarity stops. Socialism does not have a skin tone nor does Communism which is exactly the basis for attacking the foundation of Christianty. Americans need to get over the concept of race and start evaluating the values of the individual. That said, Obama's true colors never really shown until he was in office and suddenly the horror of his "fundamental transformation" began. We have made a huge mistake in America and had to live with it now for almost four years with the situation getting worse by the day. If we cannot correct that mistake and many others in November, we will have created our own demise and only those who are blind by choice will not see it but none will escape it. WB
