Commentary By: Gordon King
President Barack Hussein Obama has pledged to change a nation, to usher in a new America. Has he been true to his words? And just what does he have planned for us during his last year in office?
President Obama has succeeded in bringing America to her knees, not in humble adoration for God Almighty, but further away from God, in weakened defense, unabashed self-proclamation of tyranny and superiority, and in dividing the races, classes, and religions! He has turned his back and the back of the American government away from supporting Israel, away from the morals and values of the God of the universe!
Lets take a look at some of the President’s accomplishments.
Obama-Care. This monstrous piece of legislation was rammed down the throats of the American people without the consideration of the American people! It includes pieces of legislation which no one even knows about. Thousands upon thousands of pages which were not even read before being passed into law! We don’t fully realize now just what the end results will be.
Degrading America as a super power. The President has accomplished a task which he seems very proud of, and that is degrading America from “super-power” status, to a weakened state of confusion and chaos! He has gone around the world speaking out against America, and through his actions has brought shame and distrust to this once great nation!
Foreign Policy decisions through diplomacy. Instead of making firm and strong decisions for America and the American people, the President has used his form of foreign policies to make poor and weak decisions throughout the globe. One example of this was when he drew a “red-line” in the sand over the use of chemical weapons by Syria. He said that this would not be tolerated, then they used them, and what did Obama do? Nothing! Millions of Christians are being persecuted and slaughtered in the Middle East and other parts of the world. What is the President’s response? Sporadic bombing and drone attacks! While these people are being butchered and tortured, the President refuses to commit in forming a coalition of ground troops to stop this madness and evil!
Support of Muslims. While the President has claimed to be a Christian, he acts just the opposite. He has supported Muslims not only around the world, but here in America! He has allowed tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees into this country, however denies the entrance of Christian Syrians! What?! He refuses to call Islamic Terrorism what it is, even on our own soil! When Christian Americans are being murdered in America, the President never says that the victims were Christians, or that the terrorists were Muslims, I’ve never heard him admit that! When Christians in America stand up for their godly values and principles, we never hear of the President defending them, not a word! When Christian bakers refuse to submit to gay weddings they are being persecuted, made to pay exorbitant fines, and lose their business! Where is the outrage from the President?! There isn’t any!
Gay Marriage. This is a huge milestone for President Obama! The passing of gay marriage by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court however does not “make laws”, they only “interpret laws”! So they really didn’t pass a new law, but merely interpreted a current law, the law of marriage. Yet in the bible, marriage is between a man and a woman, not a man and a man, nor a woman and a woman! If the President is a true Christian, then he should know what the bible says!
National Debt. The President has succeeded at making our national debt so large that we will never be able to repay it! With successive amounts of money being pumped into the economy, with massive bailouts, the debt has gone beyond payable. And President Obama is not the only one to blame here, President George Bush started the bailouts with the “economic stimulus plan”. However, it was President Obama who has taken us to the point of economic collapse!
These are just some of the President’s accomplishments over the past eight years. Has he measured up to what you wanted? Has he given the American people what they asked for?
What will be President Obama’s major agenda in his last year? I believe that it will be “Gun Control”. The President seems dead set in pushing for further gun control in America. And while terrorism, evil, and violence escalates, the common man and woman in America will become more vulnerable to attack if this happens! Why does the President want to take away from the American people the right to own and bear arms? Why is he so dead set in taking away our ability to protect ourselves from terror and evil? These are questions that we should all be asking ourselves. What are the President’s true motives for this and why is he pushing so hard to implement it?! We as American citizens must stand up for our rights, for the right to own and bear arms, for the right to defend ourselves, and for the right of the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion! The freedom to practice our religion as our God tells us to, the God who founded this nation, blessed this nation, and raised this nation to the greatest nation on earth! This is a Christian nation, founded upon the Christian faith, under the protection and guidance of God Almighty and the bible, not a Muslim nation founded upon the ideas and principles of Muhammad and the Quran!
If we forget the past and where we came from, the humble beginnings of a great nation, founded upon the God of the universe, then all is lost! When we succumb to the ways of the world, allow our morals and values to decay, and institute laws which are ungodly, then we too shall fall! When we turn our backs on our Creator in pride and arrogance, then we shall pay, we will be judged, and the nation will be no more!
Whether or not we have reached the point of no return is questionable and no one really knows the answer. Whether or not we can kneel down and humble ourselves before the God who gave this great nation to us, the answer is yes we can! Can we honor our God, give Him thanks, and serve Him the best that we can? Yes! Can we have the hope that one day we will be living forever with God, never again to suffer with pain, sorrow, and misery? Yes, of course we can! And in this we know, if we do humble ourselves before the Creator of the universe, then He will hear us, He will forgive us, and He will bless us!
Whatever happens in this world, whatever happens to America, let us turn away from pride and arrogance, let us leave behind the sins and ways of the world. Let’s all look inside and see what’s in our hearts, our minds, and our souls! Let us turn away from the sins of the world and make Jesus Christ our saving grace! Let Him be your guide, let Him be your all in all, for with Him we can do all things, but without Him we can do nothing!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
