The Obama Corruption
Corruption = Rotten Decay of Society
So far off base
What can I say? Obama is so far off base it is almost unbelievable. But I do believe it considering Obama's history of support of immoral behavior. I am talking about Obama's recent open admission of support for gay marriage.
It is bad enough that Obama supports such filth, but to tag the label "Christian" on his decision is the ultimate blasphemy. He claims that his Christian faith had a part to play in his decision.
I have said it from the beginning: Obama is the most evil president the USA has ever seen. He has brought nothing but smooth talk, smiles, death, and corruption to the USA. Do not be deceived.
What is a Christian?
The "church" as a whole has suffered from political correct trash from the beginning.
Before we get too far, let's define what a Christian is, and what a Christian isn't.
A Christian IS a follower of Christ. That means that a true Christian believes in the teachings of Christ as recorded in the Holy Bible, and obeys them.
A Christian IS NOT someone who merely believes in a "higher power" and prays every day. Even Satan himself knows that God exists and "prays". The scriptures confirm that Satan continually comes before God day and night. So then, if you call yourself a Christian, what makes you different than Satan? I know this sounds like an off-the-cuff question, but it is an honest question. A lot of people believe themselves to be Christians when in fact they are not.
Therefore, how is a true Christian different than Satan? The answer is simple: obeying Christ, loving Him, and total devotion to Him. This means obedience to Christ in every way, according to the scriptures (not politics).
Jesus taught that in order to become a true follower of Him (a true Christian) you must forsake everything and everyone for Him. In other words, you must not love any thing more than Jesus, and you must not love any person more than Jesus. Jesus must take priority in your life. This is evident when He is the one you consult for every decision you make, and He is the one you love FAR MORE than anyone else. It means He is the one who consumes your thoughts, NOT anything or anyone else. This is a true Christian. Anything else is a compromise, and an insult to the great and Holy One, who's power is much stronger than every human that has ever lived, combined!
Anyone who does not totally devote all of their heart, and soul, and mind, and strength to the Lord Jesus, the Christ, is not worthy of Him. Period.
Obama's Political "Gospel"
The "gospel" that Obama claims to believe in is in fact no gospel. It is a mishmash, a political monster hybrid of Christianity and politics.
There is an illusion in churches today that God and Jesus is just so "nice" that they would never go anything that you would deem "bad". The assumption is that God is all about love (as they define it), and Jesus is such a nice guy, He would certainly not do anything out of hand, and he would certainly not say anything offensive to anyone.
The problem with this theology is that it is absolutely wrong!
I encourage everyone who is reading this article to re-read your bible - especially the gospels, and the book of Revelation, which details how Jesus dealt with the people.
Note that Jesus called people animals (dog, fox), white washed tombs, hypocrites, liars, devils, and sons of Satan. If you were to ask one of the Pharisees back then if they felt like Jesus loved them, what would they say? They would laugh! Jesus judged them hard, and mercilessly. In fact, he angered them so much that they attempted to kill him many times!
"But that's not the kind of Jesus we want", you may say.
But this is the REAL Jesus. This is the Jesus of the Bible. Do you want the real thing, or a counterfeit, molded in the shape of today's political correct religion?... which is not ruled by God, but is ruled by man.
It is one thing for Obama to publicly state that he is pro-gay. It is another thing for Obama to affiliate his pro-gay ideals to Christianity. He said, in summary, that the reason why he supports gay marriage is because he is a Christian, and as Christians, we are to be nice to everybody.
This, my friend, is direct blasphemy against the Christ that Obama claims to serve. Jesus NEVER condoned ANY sin.
Among the hundreds of sins defined in the scriptures, homosexuality is one. And no, people are not born with it any more than serial killers are born that way. And yes, there are scientists that say that serial killers are born that way - with DNA glitches... just as there are scientists who claim that gays are born that way. But that is another topic altogether.
Homosexuality is a sin! Period. Adultery, and fornication and clearly defined as sins. But homosexuality is defined as not only a sin, but an "abomination" to God. It doesn't matter how many pro-gays try to twist and redefine the scripture. It says what it says, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.
What is the true Christian response?
Homosexuality is a lifestyle. Drug addiction is a lifestyle. Alcoholism is a lifestyle. Womanizing is a lifestyle. Pornography and masturbation is a lifestyle.
The Power to be Free
True Christianity is a lifestyle which is incompatible with sin. To become a true Christian is NO EASY thing. In fact, it is the most difficult thing in the world. Jesus said that if your righteousness does not SURPASS that of the scribes and the Pharisees, than you will NOT see heaven!
Who are the scribes, and Pharisees, and how righteous were they?
The scribes and the Pharisees were considered to be the most holy men of Jesus time. The scribes were in fact the ones who wrote, and copied the Bible. The Pharisees were religious zealots who had a reputation for being some of the most religious people on earth.
Having said that, to become a true Christian, and a true follower of Christ as Jesus taught, it is a VERY difficult thing. In fact it is absolutely impossible by human strength. You cannot be Christian just by saying a prayer, or going to church. To be a Christian you must "die to self" as taught in the Bible.
Having established the fact that it is absolutely impossible to become a true Christian by human effort we need to establish one more fact: With God all things are possible. Jesus taught this very concept in the context of salvation. It is impossible for anyone to be saved from hellfire apart from a miracle of God.
And how do we obtain such a miracle? And how do we obtain such a grace from God to actually be saved from hell, and become a true Christian?
The answer is simple, yet profound: you cannot. You must "die to self" and trust in Him, and allow his grace to change you. True salvation only comes by resurrection power. And a true ressurection cannot be obtained unless the subject is 100% dead!
Denying oneself and death to self must come which is hard, but necessary for salvation. We cannot go on in sin, claiming to be saved by grace.
The Bible says that grace teaches us to deny ungodliness. Grace is not a license to sin. Rather, grace gives us the power to be free from sin. It is the power to kill to Old self", and resurrect you into newness of life. As the scriptures say: "old things passed away and behold all things have become new", and "whoever is in Christ is a new creation, old things have passed away".
What does it mean to "die to self"?
To "die to self" is what Jesus requires of us. And this DOES NOT mean suicide!
Jesus said that we must pick up our cross and follow Him. What did me mean by that?
To pick up your cross meant only one thing in Jesus' day: death
Jesus was saying that we must "die to self". Jesus put in another way. He said that we must deny ourselves.
Therefore, to "die to self" is to deny yourself. And how do you do that? You must divorce yourself from all human pride. Pride is the biggest factor of sin. The scriptures liken pride to yeast. Jesus said we must rid ourselves from such yeast. This is pride - that which "puffs up".
Also, we must divorce ourselves from all human "rights". How many rights does a dead man have? None.
Becoming a true Christian involves coming to grips with yourself. Crucifying all pride, and all grudges, and all selfish desires. A true Christian comes face to face with death, and yet lives by the power of Christ.
The apostle Paul put it this way, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. - Galatians 2:20 KJV"
He knew what it was like to die to self, and yet live to God. This lifestyle, my friend, has absolutely no room for sinful behavior such as adultery, fornication, drug addiction, alcoholism, pornography, and homosexuality.
In conclusion, what is the true Christian response? Not acceptance of a sinful lifestyle. Jesus made it clear from Mathew to Revelation that He WILL NOT accept sin, and He DOES NOT put up with sin in anyone's life. But if you come to Him, and throw yourself at His feet, and allow yourself to die to this world, and the pride thereof, and ask Him for mercy in earnestness and truth - then He will answer the way He always answered - "You are forgiven. Go and sin NO MORE!"
