Barack Hussein Obama, Junior Is Our New President Elect. And How Should Christians Respond?

by @ 12:05 am. Filed under Questionable Items

Christians, you are to have only one response to this news.

1 Timothy 2:1-6 (New American Standard Bible)

1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men,

2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.

3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,

4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time.

Pray for our sitting President Bush and our President elect Obama. Pray for our nation and all people. That we children of God may live a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. And that as the Lord wills and opens doors, we will share the message, that THERE IS ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MAN, JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY HOPE FOR SALVATION!

    Amen. An appropriate response in light of 1 Corinthians 13:1.

  2. AirborneVet Says:

    May God blass these United States of America and protect us from the evil that men do.

  3. AirborneVet Says:

    Ok, so I can’t type. Sorry for my spelling errors in the previous comment. I meant to say “bless”.

  4. speakingtruth Says:

    Well said, brother. I echo your sentiment.

    This is a historical moment no doubt. I saw on the news where people in the church were shouting and dancing. My responsibility is to pray for Obama and all people in leadership. I have alot of concerns about Obama. Alot of people may be disappointed in him, as they are looking for a mere mortal human being to fix ALL of their problems. Jesus Christ is the REAL change we need. But of course people don’t want to hear about Him. Also, a little off the subject: a question for independent conservative: I started a study on the Book of Revelation. Just wondering are you pretrib, posttrib, or midtrib? I tried to email you but was unsuccessful.

    Best to use the contact form, was that giving you problems?

    Let’s Not Dwell on What You Were Told About a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Let’s See What the Bible Says.

    In Depth Teaching on Post Tribulation Rapture and Dispelling the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Myth.
    (The maker of those videos feels Rome is “The Antichrist”. I respect that view, but leave open the possibility that something else may be. I see the Pope as definitely an antichrist (as in an antichrist, not The Antichrist), but I don’t say without a doubt Rome is The Antichrist’s home base, but I do realize at the moment there are strong indicators pointing at Rome.)

    Post Tribulation Rapture and the Abomination of Desolation

    Jews Who Deny Jesus Christ is Lord of All are Working on a “Third Temple”. Nobody Who Claims Jesus Christ as Lord Should Participate in the Effort in Any Way.

    And how pimps leverage incorrect teaching on the subject: Apostate John Hagee Leverages Pre-Tribulation Rapture Myth to Appease Apostate Roman Catholic Cult

    Hope that’s enough 🙂 .

    IC, excellent recommendation regarding our new president-elect. I am still baffled by the amonunt of blind-adulation that is heaped upon Obama, to the extent that my girlfriend was literally jumping up and down in anger after her nephew and I told her, and her guests at her election night party, that it was “not intellegent” to vote for someone simply b/c of race. As I looked around the room at the 15 or so people present last night, abut 4 generations of people were present in the room, the eldest being over 70s, the hostess and the majority being in their 40s/50s & the rest 35 (moi) and under. I was reminded that people in the older demographic are more prone to vote for the sake of history and emotion rather than fact (my mother called nearly crying over this “moment).” Then, they will pass those same mores down to their children to vote w/o considering facts.

    As historically significant as last night was (and the days to come), I cannot help but to think about what was laid forward in 1 Samuel 6:8-9 when the God-given authority in Samuel was rejected by the people. This commentary I came across today, I believe, pretty much speaks for itself…..

    Well, of course if 90+% of Whites had voted for McCain, that would have been called racist and cited as a problem. The “International community” would have expressed outrage. But many Black people who even claim the Lord’s Name vote on race and feel a hypocritical double standard is something to shout over, when it goes the way they voted.

    Regarding Bill Keller, I’ll just say Bill is a bit of a sensationalist. I say that as a general statement about his overall approach in general. And he seems to show much politically partisan partiality in his statements about publicans, often overlooking big time issues if they involve certain politicians he likes. And did I mention while he’s critical of some televangelist methods, but he’s hooked to the same syndication company? I get the feeling a good bit of what Keller does and says is for marketing and self promotion through sensationalism. Sort of playing the role of Christian shock jock and making some very over the top statements at times, sort of like the man’s show he goes on sometimes, Howard Stern. (Sometimes people disagree with me on this, but give it time, people usually see it once they watch him long enough, I know I did.)

  9. IndependentConservative Says:

    And I’ve also got to mention, there were a whole lot of people Bill could have learned some technical skills from outside of the bunch he went to for training. People outside of the tech field might fall for that line he pulled about the group he went to being the ones to seek, but I know there were others of better reputation, because me and some others were working on the same type of stuff back then. Companies like Microsoft and Real Networks were offering the information on how to do it in their competition to sign up customers and others had tools and resources also. There was no shortage of options.

  10. psalm100 Says:

    IC- I thought I could just click on your name and be able to email you. Now I see the contact form. I see the danger of pretrib teaching. Since people believe they won’t be here, they may fall under the pressure of the Antichrist. Our pastors need to be teaching the truth and nothing but the truth of the Gospel. I am concerned that people won’t be prepared for the real persecution of the church.
    Too much fluff and not enough substance.

  11. IndependentConservative Says:

    Why would they prepare for persecution? When the pimps are telling them they should be living lavishly, or they are short on faith?

  12. psalm100 Says:

    That’s my sentiment exactly.
