If Obama is a Christian, then What About His Non-Christian Policies?
I’m amazed that the media and a number of GOPers are saying that President Obama is a Christian. How can he be a Christian when he supports killing unborn babies, supports homosexuality and same-sex marriage, and continues to use his high office to force religious institutions to go against their religious beliefs by forcing them to fund abortifacient drugs?
President Obama has stood behind Planned Parenthood and promises to veto any bill that would stop sending the pro-abortion organization $500 million in stolen money to the organization.
These are not the actions of a Christian. President Obama’s inaction regarding the atrocities regarding Christians in the Middle East is reminiscent of the plight of Jews in Germany and Poland. While he is opening our borders to Islamists, he has said almost nothing about Christian refugees who are losing their homes, possessions, and even their lives to radical Islamists.
Where was Obama when a German Christian family was trying to escape the tyranny of the German government over homeschooling?
“The devoutly Christian Romeike family fled to the United States in 2008 from southwest Germany after the German government threatened them with legal action for homeschooling their children, which has been banned in Germany since 1918. . . The Romeikes were initially granted asylum by a Memphis judge who believed that Germany had unfairly restricted the family’s religious freedom. That decision was challenged and overturned by the Obama administration on appeal, which argued that Germany’s home schooling ban did not constitute religious persecution and could not be used as a basis for asylum in the United States.”
It’s been left mostly to Donald Trump to make Christian persecution a national issue and an indictment against the Obama presidency:
“The bigger issue [than not answering a question about whether Obama is a Muslim] is that Obama is waging a war against Christians in this country,” Trump told The New York Times.
A person saying he or she is a Christian is not biblical evidence. A person’s profession is validated by the fruit that’s produced:
“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil” (Matt. 12:33-35).
Earlier in Matthew’s gospel we find this:
“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS’” (7:15-23; also see Ps. 6:8; Matt. 25:41; Luke 13:27).
President Obama is practicing lawlessness on a grand scale. He’s just nominated an open homosexual to lead the United States Army. A Christian would not – could not – do this.
On many occasions when Obama was running for President, he continually stated that he was opposed to same-sex marriage based on his Christian beliefs. So what should we make of his (1) anti-same-sex marriage comments in 2008 when compared to (2) his promotion of same-sex marriage now? If his opposition to same-sex marriage was based on his Christian beliefs, then what are his pro-homosexual beliefs based on?
