President Obama and his faith

I love God, this earthly country He's made me a citizen of, and I respect the presidential office and the foundation on which it was established, to: faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

However, I do not respect the manner in which President Obama has neglected this solemn oath, and more over, how he professes Christ Jesus as Lord, yet lives, votes and believes in a way that vehemently opposes  God Almighty's holy and righteous decrees (2 Tim 2:22).

"If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain."
~1 Timothy 6:3-5

I've been praying for our President since he took office five years ago and continue to pray for him, his cabinet, advisers and of course, his precious family. I pray that God will grant all of them the gift of repentance that leads to salvation in Christ, which is far greater than a mere man's profession of faith (Matthew 15:7-9).

True salvation comes from the Lord and not even the President of the United States can claim it for himself just because he's the President. He doesn't have the power or authority to save himself by mere words. Eternal salvation can only be invoked by the power of God and not by a decision, choice, or proclamation of any human being, no matter how passionately or emphatically one might proclaim it.

"For He says to Moses, 'I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.' So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy."
~Romans 9:15-16

President Obama joyfully calls good evil and evil good as he continues to rally support for heterosexual immorality which produces unwanted, yet precious babies who are callously murdered by their own mothers; while he honors Planned Parenthood and those like them who prey on the uneducated, weak and often poor of this world, forcing them to make life decisions based on fear and lies as they deliberately try to hide the truth from them (like opposing mandatory sonograms or education about a baby's development from the time of conception).

"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink, who acquit the guilty for a bribe, and deprive the innocent of his right!"
~Isaiah 5:20-23

The President also gives unwavering support and approval of homosexual immorality as he fights for, promises and rejoices over every ungodly victory to inoculate people of all ages...including elementary-aged children, with this grievous sin by telling them that gay, lesbian and transgender lifestyles are good, acceptable and "normal", when God Himself says this is perverse.

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth...For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them."
~Romans 1:18, 26-32

Furthermore, the President has encouraged the idle, pride-filled, and entitled people who expect demand that others study and work hard, so the sluggards of this world never have to do anything more than occupy a street and/or look for the next handout rather than a hand-up. Enabling bright and competent people to remain utterly dependent on others is not showing them honor or love, it's actually a demonstration of hate, as they are kept trapped in their dire situations (Prov 19:15, 2 Peter 2:1-2).

Though the President has never purported to be a teacher of the Word of God, he does often quote Scripture out of context and deceives the masses into believing and supporting his well-crafted lies.

President Obama has neither honored the oath he swore when he took office...twice, nor has he honored God through his egregious profession of faith in Christ—the only Son of God Almighty.

Why is this all such a concern for me and why is this on a blog entitled, Abandoned to Christ? Because there are too many professing Christians (and possibly falsely converted) as well as possibly true and well-meaning Christians who have been deceived by our President's claim that he is a member of the Body of Christ, thereby causing division within the Church.

Below is a recent and heartbreaking example of an exchange that happened between me and a Mr. Chuck Powell, who told me he graduated from seminary with a Master of Divinity degree.

Mr. Powell attacked me and Albert Mohler after Dr. Mohler tweeted about the President's statement that same-sex marriages ought to be legal in all the states across our country. I merely responded to Dr. Mohler's tweet (and no, I don't know Dr. Mohler personally and he has no idea who I am), to encourage him and anyone else on the thread, that I would be praying and that we all should.

For five years I've said nothing negative about our President, publicly. But I find that I cannot remain silent any longer while the President of our great nation revels in the murdering of millions of innocent unborn babies; while women are goaded into playing the harlot in the name of "sexual freedom"; while Christian companies (like Hobby Lobby) are being threatened to be fined thousands of dollars if they won't include abortion in their healthcare plan, and while the marriage union that God created is being maligned by those who choose to live a sinful and debased homosexual lifestyle.

I'm writing this to exhort every Christian to faithfully pray for the salvation of our foolish and lost President who's been ensnared by the devil to do his will (2 Tim 2:26).

"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time."
~1 Timothy 2:1-6

I beseech you saints, to kneel with me in loving intercession for our President and our country's leaders; to bear arms with me by being students of the Word so we may wield it well; to stand up and speak for the innocent babies who are being slaughtered by the thousands daily; to lovingly speak truth to anyone you know who lives in a homosexual or transgender lifestyle so they may be freed from the captivity of their sin with the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ (Rom 1:16-17) and so you might encourage and offer a hand-up to sluggards so they will have something to give others rather than take what is not theirs (Eph 4:28).

As our wise Pastor Chuck Swindoll said to us this Sunday, "One person can't do everything, but each of us can do something", and together, we can be the salt and light Christ commanded us to be as we hold out the word of life to this crooked and twisted generation (Philippians 2:14-17).

Earnestly seek the LORD in all this, and pray fervently about how He desires for you to participate in the battle for good over evil; and read His Word to find your answer...then do it...immediately.

Remember, our full hope, trust and fear is in God Almighty alone, not the President, evil laws or our government. So regardless of what transpires, remember to always honor and obey God in everything and with everything.

"Great is the LORD, who delights in the welfare of His servant!..I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread."
~Psalm 35:27, 37:25
