Please Do Not Use Jesus When It Is Convenient Mr. President

Why is it that the very people who are always crying a river about the separation of church and state seem to have no problem bringing up religion when it is convenient for them from a political perspective?

I watched in amazement yesterday as our fearless leader who spends most Sundays playing golf yet hardly graces the doors of a house of worship since he has taken office inaccurately attribute things to Jesus that only a person who speaks foolishly does.

Like the Christian that sits in church once in a while, learns a few scriptures, listens to the preacher when he/she feels like it, selects and uses certain scriptures for personal gain, and chooses to follow every new doctrine or new teaching that comes along this President has the audacity to use God’s word to help raise taxes on people.  (Note: As I keep trying to tell everyone raising taxes on the wealthy affects everyone and even if the government took every dime from every person making a million dollars or more it would still only be a small percentage to pay on this nation’s debt)

This man has spent his entire career working for and voting for things that are contrary to God’s word from utilizing legislation to forcibly take money from people (that my friends is stealing and is why we left England) to his love and passion in the killing of unborn children through abortion especially the heinous late-term abortion which has been proven even by medical practitioners to be a painful and horrific procedure for the unborn child and the mother and some of these unwanted babies have even been aborted breathing and left to die following this evil operation.

Liberals for years have used legislation to institute abortion, take any trace of God out of schools, take God out of public gatherings, take God out of the courts, and now the assault is breaching the most sacred, Constitutionally,  guaranteed places of churches and even our very own homes as some local governments are trying to banish home-Bible study.

 As a Christian I try to lead a life that is pleasing to God with the realization that I am not Him thus not perfect so I cannot judge another man’s heart but only by his actions so I cannot judge  the President’s salvation.  I can, however, judge any man or woman by their actions or behaviors as whether or not it lines up with the teachings of the Lord Jesus and when it does not it is very visible and dangerous when said person is a position of power and influence. 

It says in Matthew 7:16: “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  As Christians we learn that since God is the only person that truly knows a man or woman’s heart I can only go by what I see from the President’s actions, his suggested policies, his behavior, and the actions, suggested policies, and the behavior of the people who he surrounds himself with (he surrounds himself with consummate liars like Eric Holder who is caught in one lie after another).

I don’t view this man or any other man as so many of my brothers and sisters do and by that I mean as a person to be worshiped and believed in as if he were a diety-like and not an imperfect man who has the capability to do evil and say evil things even when his intentions may be good.

If I judge him I judge him on what I see and as a man I see a genuine husband, a loving father, a person of compassion but I also see a person who is guided by ideology, a person who has no trouble stretching the truth or downright lying, a person who’s most ardent confidant’s cannot give Godly advice because God is not in them by their own declaration, and a person who through his personal and political history when researched properly has been shown to do anything and destroy anyone through the “Chicago way” to achieve power.

When any area of our lives are not truly being led by the Holy Spirit we have the capability of lying with fear of repercussion, deceiving without pause, colluding with those that do evil, and misleading others down the path of unrighteousness as we sojourn on it ourselves (I’m not speaking of the President in this case this is true of for all mankind even Christians when we are not hearing the Holy Spirit).

So please Mr. President spare me the Bible lessons and just do your job!  Spare me the eloquent speeches and get back to work!  Stop trying to take more money from people under the guise of helping others only to use it to grow and use it for more government programs that cannot and will not work.

If you want to utilize the Bible sir I suggest you read up on what it says about debt:

2 Kings 4:7 “Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.”

Romans 13:8 “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.”

Proverbs 21:20: “In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.”

Luke 14:28–30

“For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it—lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?”

 These are just a few samplings of what the Bible says about debt and wise choices when considering financial matters yet while you seem to have no problem telling others that they need to give up more of their money to the government (which almost always wastes it) you  fail to heed God’s counsel on getting out of and staying out of debt.

 You have racked up more debt than all of the Presidents including your predecessor combined  and yet you continue to ask for more money when we already borrowing more than we as a nation can sustain and pay for.

 So again Mr. President, spare me the Bible lessons and if I want to hear what the Bible says out of context I don’t need you to do it for our mutual enemy satan already has that job and he’s quite good at it but just as I do him I’ll ignore your childish, un-Christ-like sayings and continue to pray for you to be able to be led by the Holy Spirit and to finally receive good, Christ-like counsel that will benefit all of us and not just the people who you are aligned with and to be fair many of your opponents on the other side are guilty of doing just what you have done and I rebuke them at this moment as well.

    Amen to that Ron! How can he stand up and tell the nation that Jesus would back his plan when the man, who claims to be a Christian, has not joined a church while in office? Political spin at the ultimate low. Unbelievable!
