Christians who supported Obama should be ashamed
Barack Obama is not the Devil, but he often carries Satan’s water.
Barack Obama is on the Devil’s side when it comes to abortion. Satan loves abortion. God hates it. Exodus 20:13 says, “Thou shalt not kill.” Proverbs 6:16-17 says, “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood.” Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before you were formed in the womb, I knew you.”
Barack Obama is on the Devil’s side when it comes to homosexuality. Satan loves homosexuality. God hates it. Romans 1:26b-27 says “For even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature; and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.”
With all of that in mind, why did an estimated 40 million people who identify themselves as Christians vote to re-elect Barack Obama? That is one third of the 120 million or so Americans who voted in the 2012 presidential race. Ninety percent of African-American Protestants voted for Obama. So did forty-four percent of non-evangelical white Protestants such as Methodists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians (Anglicans) and Lutherans. Three out of four Hispanic Catholics also voted for Obama, as well as forty percent of white Catholics.
Some of those people who identify themselves as Christians may not really be Christians. Barack Obama says he is a Christian, but he is not. He is a universalist. He says there are many ways to get to Heaven, but the One he says he follows stands in direct opposition to universalism. In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus leaves no wiggle room. It is His way or no way.
In a 2004 interview with Cathleen Falsani, Obama said, “I believe that there are many paths to the same place. All people of faith—Christians, Jews, Muslims, animists, everyone knows the same God.”
Does the president think Jesus is lying? Jesus has never uttered a lie. Does the president think Jesus is misinformed? Jesus is never misinformed. Does the president think Jesus is confused? Jesus is never confused. He is God, and by definition, He is perfect, so that rules out lying, misinformation and confusion.
It is Barack Obama who is confused. He claims to be a Christian but denies the truth of what the founder of Christianity says about salvation. You cannot have it both ways. You cannot claim Christ on the one hand, deny Him on the other and be a Christian. It won’t work. It doesn’t fit. Are you going to believe Barack Obama or Jesus Christ?
So this is the man 40 million self-identified Christians voted for. He is the most pro-abortion president in our history. In May of this year, after saying he believed in the traditional definition of marriage, one man and one woman, he “evolved” on the issue into being a same-sex marriage proponent. He pandered to the base of his party by cheerleading for the Democrats’ pet social issues, abortion and homosexuality.
Black Christians voted for Obama in droves, despite the fact that most polling data indicates a majority of them stand opposed to abortion and homosexuality. Before the election, there were dissenting voices trying to reach them with a warning about Obama.
Dr. Alveda King, daughter of Martin Luther King’s brother, the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King, said, “Obama’s answer to the ills of society, of higher government spending, weaker national defense, continued tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, and support of gay marriage, are diametrically opposed to everything African Americans truly believe and an anathema to the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”
Black author William Owens, Jr., the founder of Black Americans For Real Change (BARC), said before the election, “Barack Obama is directly contrary to many positions and beliefs of Martin Luther King, Jr. Obama is trying to make African-Americans believe he is the reality of the Dream come true, but he’s not. It’s a nightmare. It is high time for black America, white America and all America to stop making their ethnicity such a big deal that we become zealous for our color over being zealous for what is right and what is truth.”
With Obama’s voiced support and voting record for partial-birth abortion, Alveda King takes issue with him. She is a leader in the pro-life and civil rights movements. “We can talk about poverty; we can talk about war; we can talk about teen pregnancy; we can talk about incarceration; however, if we’re not allowed to live, we’ll never encounter those issues,” she said.
King recalls her Uncle Martin saying, “The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.” For Alveda King, abortion is a civil rights issue. “Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother,” she said. “The mother decides his or her fate. How can the Dream survive if we murder the children?” asks Dr. King concerning abortion. “Life was very precious to my uncle and life today is precious.”
“Our best interests as black Americans,” Owens said, “lie in a new direction that reflects our core beliefs and values, not merely a resemblance of someone we look like.”
Again, before the election, quoting her uncle, King said, “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.” And, she added, “This is not the time to be silent; this is not the time to give Barack Obama a free pass. There is too much at stake.”
But, the fact is, Barack Obama did get a pass right back into the White House, thanks, in part, to forty million Christians who turned their backs on Jesus and the Bible. They are complicit in the murders of unborn babies and the immorality of homosexuality and same-sex marriage. They will have to give an account for their votes.
On November 6th, like the president they voted for, they helped carry Satan’s water.
