The Infanticide / Abortion Genocide US "President" Obama


Black women are about 3 times likely to have
an abortions than their female white
counterparts. Gov't funded Planned
Parenthood abortion clinics are strategically
placed in highly populated black neigborhoods.
Founder of Planned Parenthood, Margret Sanger
would be pleased to witness the organization she
founded and its practice of modern day eugenics.
In the latest CNN Republican presidential primary debate, the liberal media moderator asked a question about the recent forced contraceptive mandate by the HHS Obama Administration. The question never went any further with any answers, as it was stopped short by the comment of candidate Newt Gingrich. He correctly pointed out the following:"

Please note:
"Links to Barack Obama’s votes on Illinois’ Born Alive Infant Protection Act:"


The moral and political double standard of the ungodly extremist media

This is the man [monster] con artist that
Americans have allowed to be their chief
executive. Politicians, media, Conservative talk
show hosts, other influential Americans – plus
the voting electorate have been 
complicit
in 
Obama’s lies and deceptions. He never met
 the Constitutional standard requirement of 
 “natural born citizen;” and he forged his 

identity, vis-a-vis a fraudulent birth certificate.
The same liberal mainstream media which have been ignoring important issues regarding our present White House occupier, did not (in the first place) do its job scrutinizing Mr. Obama's past Illinois Senate record and his past unsavory personal and political associations. Furthermore, nor, did this same media investigate Constitutional claims of Mr. Obama's ineligibility status to be put on the presidential ballot in 2008. At present, Obama has not met the Constitutional requirement of being a "natural born citizen" as required by the United States Constitution, - and, he never will, by virtue of his father's foreign birth status at the time of Obama's birth. And, even to this present date, there has been no legal authority that has vetted Obama Jr. to be legally placed on the presidential ballot in 2008 and now, the 2012 presidential election ballot.

[April 2013 update] - It might as well be noted, that Obama's long form birth certificate (essential for the office of the president, requirement) has been proven to be 100% forged. It was recently publicly disclosed, as such.

But, be that as it may, the liberal mainstream media (and, sometimes, FOX, included) will ignore unfavorable news about Obama, but, on the other hand, for example, are very swift to scrutinize and criticize a presidential GOP candidate, such as Rick Santorum, who recently was hauled out on the political carpet for his 2008 remarks questioning Obama's "theology." [“Rick Santorum questions Obama's Christian values” - http://www.mlive.com/]

In short, the liberal media (moral) double standard is this:
Mainstream liberal (extremist) media ignores, denies and works against the Christian religion and its followers, unless that same Christian religion is professed by one of its own. It's OK for media to scrutinize Christian Conservative and Republican opposition for their religious Christian faith, but, woe to anyone who scrutinizes or is critical of their liberal politician darling, Barack Obama, and his (professed, yet false) "Christian" faith.

Liberal mainstream media will even go so far as to “cover” for their favorite political rock star:

"Obama Admits He Is A Muslim:" - youtube.com/ - Please note in this short video, the ABC interview with George Stephanopoulos, in which the interviewer corrects Obama, so that Obama can still pose as a “Christian.” This, begins at about the 50 second mark during the utube video.
And, while we are on the subject of the United States (putative) president’s religious faith, please note the following:


How can it be honestly concluded that Barack Obama is a [genuine] Christian who has actively supported infanticide, - and who now, actively supports genocide?

There is no active evidence that Obama is a (genuine) Christian
Obama conned the majority of the Christian voting
electorate that he was a Christian. Yet, his "fruit
bearing record" testifies against him. He holds the
most powerful position on earth and his agenda
continues to rule in favor of death for the preborn
rather than life.

Christ taught His followers that they were to judge a good tree by its "fruit." A person's actions and life are to mirror Christ. Does anyone in his right mind think that Obama's actions, both personal and political, mirror Christ and the Gospel which He taught?

How can a president, who makes executive domestic and national policy decisions so contrary to the teachings of the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, including Christ's Gospel teachings, even honestly claim to be one of Christ's disciples? Obama is no more Christian, than the man in the moon.

The following 2 subjects relating to Obama's actions, connect the dots of why he is "Christian" in name only.

Also note:

Although, I am elated that a number of high profile Christian leaders finally kicked up their heels at the latest government intrusion upon religious liberty and Christian conscience, I believe that there needs to be some “carry through,” and follow-up. It’s not enough for church leaders and Christians to object because one’s church or denomination would lose some freedom and be financially limited and stressed and be forced to act against Christian conscience. There is a much larger picture to be seen and experienced. Church leaders and their Christian flocks need to understand that our present culture is under genocide assault. And, those assaults not only take place by global Muslim massacres, but, right here in our own American backyards vis-à-vis the continued taxpayer funding of unrestricted and wanton abortion as is taking place by Planned Parenthood.

It’s time for Christian denominational and pastor leaders, along with their church membership followings, to utilize their God-given free speech (US) 1st Amendment rights to publicly speak out, condemning (rebuking) government of all forms (local, county, state and federal) for its culture of death activities, agenda and policies that would continue to cut short the “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” of those pre-born members of our human community. This is no time to cower in fear of losing government granted, tax exempt status. This is no time to hide behind certain Scriptures which deal with the Christian’s attitude and submissiveness to government. [Romans 12:1f] The good Lord has blest this nation with its Constitutional Republic, making public protest and civil disobedience appropriate within the law and Scriptural directives.

Please note:

How does all of what I've related (the aforementioned) relate to you?

When there is the absence of vigilance and pro-active positive and godly behavior, evil people will foist their global godless agendas upon culture and individual societies. Such, as is, already taking place in the United States with the political leadership of president Obama, his liberal / extremist political party and the complacent kowtowing, (encouraging) mainstream liberal media.

Although America enjoys its free speech 1st Amendment rights, there are many signs of freedom erosion, due to the liberal extremist religion of political correctness and multiculturalism. Political correctness would discourage 1st Amendment speech and practice by denying and working against those who simply voice another point of view. The essence of political correctness is to brand those who voice another point of view, as bigots, hate-mongers and racists, because what they say and do is (perceived) as offensive by someone or some group. Multiculturalism is the principal (godless) belief that holds everyones’ value systems as morally equal – all, except, the Christian’s value system, which is based upon the Hebrew Old Testament and Christian New Testament Christian Scriptures.

Already these two religious tenants of political correctness and multiculturalism are being played out in the culture. Just a small example: Some websites limit free and proper online comment (written / posted) speech by warning against using any Nazi (Hitler) terminology or reference, to include within one’s particular comments. Why would this be? Just observe and notice the similarities of the present US White House occupant’s view regarding abortion. How dare anyone compare the "family man," Obama to the ruthless Hitler? To that, I quote from Conservapedia.com:

To those of you who are non Christians and Christians, - and, who have no spiritual clue

These important life and death issues, which I’ve been relating, might not seem important or that relevant, at all, to you. I can only say, that I can only imagine that the reason you might not be that upset and moved, is that you lack the spiritual perspective. Morality based upon the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures may mean little to you. Instead, you ride the media roller coaster of being a passive observer, going along with the political “favor” of the day and being convinced that you had better shut up and not speak out. However, I will vehemently state that it makes no difference what you think and what your spiritual perspective might be. Why? When the good Lord says in the Ten Commandments, “Thou shall not murder,” the sin of determined, wanton and needless abortion is not exempt from that command. Exodus 20:13

“Sin” in a holy and just God’s estimation, excludes a person's soul from the life hereafter in heaven’s perfect abode. Those who die in their sins without having the forgiveness of the shed blood of Christ are destined to spend their forever soul’s existence, not in heaven’s “life eternal” but in hell's “death’s eternal.” Luke 16:19-31 ; John 3:14-21 and John 3:36

May all who desire to live a life of good conscience and a life pleasing to God apart from their sinful nature and their daily sins, seek Him by way of the written revelation He has provided. [2 Timothy 3:14-17] 


May the good Lord grant you the faith to believe Him. For without faith, it is impossible to "please God." [Hebrews 11:6] Genuine faith in Christ is necessary for your priceless soul. That faith is found in God's divine revelation of the Holy Scriptures. Romans 1:16 ; Romans 10:17 ; Acts 8:26-39 ; James 1:18 ; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ; 1 Peter 1:3-7

May you come to know the living God and Christ who can set you free from sin bondage and make your soul ready for a future eternity of “life” everlasting, rather than “death” everlasting. Matthew 7:13-29 ; John 1:1-18 ; John 10:1-30 ; Luke 16:19-31

Amen.

Children in the womb were protected and mothers were given the special treatment that they deserved. The insane fabrication of the abortion movement, that the child is an extension of the woman’s own body, has met more than its rhetorical match. It has run headfirst into medical science. For example, research has proven that the child secretes hormone mixtures, found in the placenta, in order to protect its position in the first home and to secure itself within the womb against the immune system of the mother which is made to fight against “foreign” substances. The child is no “foreign substance” but rather a member of the family......

Understanding the Bible – Reasons Why Non Christians Don’t Comprehend the Holy Scriptures

Note: This message uses the word “Scripture” and “Bible” interchangeably

It is common for many people to equate "truth"
with "science," because (genuine) science can
be empirically evidenced by repeated observations.
However, it is easily overlooked that truth can be
found through recorded history. The Hebrew and
Christian Scriptures are documented history; and,
in addition, this composite [Bible] book claims to
 be different from all other books because of its 
divine revelation origin.

Some time ago, my wife and I viewed a history network (TV) special on the “Exodus.” Without exception, all the miracles recorded in Scripture dealing with the Israelite exodus, were explained by some sort of “naturalistic” explanation. What, by and large, our culture fails to realize, is, that the God who created the universe, needs no natural phenomena to take place in order to exact [create] the type of changes in human history which He desires to make.

The same God who created the universe is the same Triune God who created human history. [Genesis1:f] He is, by definition “supernatural.” And, what He does, He does, supernaturally. God’s supernatural behavior and acts supersede the scientific. I prefer to reference “science,” not so much as truth, but reality. When it comes to the truth, Christians who believe in the Triune God look to Christ who claimed (and still claims) to be the Truth. For us, the truth is a no-brainer. The Scriptures tell us that in Christ, “are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:3

Non Christians, fail to understand “paradox”

Misguided souls often make the mistake of claiming
that the Bible is contradictory; when, in reality,
it can easily be understood and accepted by God-
gifted-faith. Once this divine spiritual enlightenment
 is present,"supposed contradictions" aren't an issue.
Rather, these alleged contradictions can be understood,
rationally; accepting them as Scriptural paradoxes.
Scripture is replete with examples, which, to the unregenerate mind, are contradictory. One example keeps “cropping up” with unbelievers. They will unfairly charge God with not being true to His loving nature. They ask the question: “How can a loving God be a loving God that He claims to be and then send people to hell when they die?” Somehow, they overlook that the Bible has [already] given the answer to that question. But, they have already dismissed the God-given gift of “free moral agency” (free moral will) granted to every human who has ever lived and who will live, upon this earth. Hence, people, end up rejecting God’s free “salvation” gift of the Savior Christ. They end up, in effect, rejecting God’s forgiveness for their sins against God and their fellowman, thereby (and, consequently) shutting themselves off from a God blest hereafter in holy heaven.

God is, a “God of Love” – but, at the same time, He is a “God of Justice.” He gives the unbelieving soul their “free will” choice. He will not force the sinner and drag him into His Holy heaven! This is not contradictory. This reality is more of a paradox. God loves the sinner. But God will punish the sinner if he does not believe and repent. No contradiction here -- only for the unregenerate mind.

Understanding Biblical Interpretation

Scripture, itself, claims to be God’s Word. God is the ultimate author who utilized His specific chosen people, (the ancient Israelites and Roman subjugated Jews and Gentiles) to pen what He so desired, to convey upon scroll and parchment, His written revelation of Law and Gospel. 2 Peter 1:21 ; 2 Timothy 3:14-17

Scripture was written by various human authors, using a variety of literary styles – and, as such, must carefully be interpreted and understood “exegetically” in context. [Note: The Book of Psalms as compared to Proverbs] Scripture writings contain poetry, prose, history, prophecy, etc. And, they contain various literary “devices” such as hyperbole, figurative language and symbolism, etc.

Scripture, itself, claims to be without error, as the Triune God, by His holy nature, cannot lie. Psalm 12:6 ; Psalm 19:7 ; Psalm 119:144 ; John 17:17

Scripture is the primary “vehicle” (“means” of divine grace) to bring people to saving faith in Jesus Christ. Psalm 19:7 ; Psalm 119:144 ; Psalm 119:151-152 ; John 17:17 ; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 ; Romans 10:17 ; 1 Peter 1:22-23 ; James 1:21

Scripture does not claim to be a science or biology book. Many people and skeptics throughout history have derided the Bible because they have found what they “think,” are contradictions. However, upon the passage of time and continuing archaeological and scientific discoveries, they have been proven wrong and have been exposed for having presumed Scripture to be just like any other human book.

One of the most abused principles of Biblical
interpretation, is that Scripture interprets itself.
So often people are found formulating Scriptural
teachings on isolated Bible passages rather than
allowing Scripture to explain itself in its
composite Old and New Testament books.
Principles of Biblical Interpretation
  • Scripture's purpose is to reveal the Messiah, the Savior. Isaiah 53:1f ; 1 Corinthians 15:1:f ; 2 Timothy 3:14-17
  • Scripture was [is] God’s revealed communication method to transmit what is necessary for sinful souls. It principally highlights the major (basic) problem of the human race and, the solution answer in the person of the (prophesied) Christ, whose life in the Christian New Testament Scriptures, fulfill  previous prophecies and also document the virgin birth, holy life, suffering, death and resurrection of the forgiveness of sins person of Jesus Christ. Isaiah 53:1f ; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4:1f
  • Scripture must be understood as a historical document. Rules of normal interpretation apply. It was written to people (cultures) during a span of some 2000 years, - in their language. Hence, phrases, such as the “ends of the earth” are to be accepted as normal speech, - just as we (so-called) “modern” day people speak of the “sun rising” and “sun, setting.” Romans 15:4
  • Scripture must be understood, as a whole. Although it is compiled of 66 books [Protestant designation] its message is central – Sin / Savior. John 3:14-21 ; 2 Timothy 3:14-17
  • Scripture interprets itself. Example: The major prophecies of the Messiah Christ, as divinely documented in the Old Testament, and divinely fulfilled in the New Testament Scriptures. [Principal example: Hebrew prophecy Scripture, Isaiah 53:1f and the fulfillment of it as illustrated in the Christian New Testament 4 Gospels, beginning with Matthew 1:1f and ending with John 1:1f]
  • Scripture is the divine revelation of God’s Law and God’s Gospel. Either confusing God’s Law and Gospel or haphazardly mixing God’s Law with the Gospel, can diminish both the force and effect of the whole of preached and taught Scripture. [Example: Galatians 5:22-23 – denying salvation and heaven for the disobedient sinner. Confusing the sin with the ongoing lifestyle of sin, as expressed in Romans 1:16-31]
  • Scripture must be (first) understood by its clearest passages. Other passages [verses, -- whether figurative, allegorical, or, whatever] then, are correctly interpreted in the light [on the basis] of the clear passages of Scripture. Example: Matthew 25:1f and Revelation 20:1f
  • Scripture must be understood as God "inspired" [authored] - See 2 Timothy 3:14-17 ; 2 Peter 1:21
  • A person’s spiritual understanding must be “opened up” to grasp the divine revelation spiritual truths. 1 Corinthians 2:14 ; Luke 24:45
Note: The above principles of Biblical interpretation are just several. There are, of course, more, - too many to list for purposes of this topical message.

Original (inherited) sin corrupts a human soul from
truly understanding the Divine. Only through the
gifted intervention of the Triune God can a
person become "undisturbed." God the Holy Spirit
must "regenerate" that which is "unregenerate."
See the Gospel of John 3:1-21 - especially the first
part, concerning Christ and Nicodemus.
The major reason why a sinful soul cannot understand (comprehend) the Bible

Why can’t a sinner understand (comprehend) the Bible? The answer to that question is partially, in the question. The person is a sinner. Unless a sinner (and, we are all sinners), comes to the saving knowledge of Christ, His Savior, [“becomes saved” or, “is a believer"] that sinner is without the necessary forgiveness of sins which is the absolute requirement for a hereafter heaven.

The Bible teaches that all people born sinners. [Psalm 51:5] “Sin” is an inherited spiritual disease. [Romans 5:12] In fact, it is the worst disease anyone can possess. Why? Because, it not only results in physical death [Genesis 2:17 ; Genesis 3:19] and spiritual blindness while the person is living, but brings eternal (hereafter) spiritual death. This spiritual death is not something which cannot be sensed or felt. It is a forever death of insurmountable proportions – never ending, in torment and agony. Luke 16:10-31 ; Matthew 25:31-46

The reason for the physical and forever spiritual (hellish) death is that the holy Triune God cannot allow into his heaven, any human soul which has been tainted and stained with sin. Sin is a transgression (act) against God’s Ten Commandments. Sin also encompasses “sins of omission,” such as failing to do good and love our neighbor when it was within our realm and capacity to do so.

When the our first parents (Adam and Eve) sinned in the beginning, that sin set off a chain reaction which resulted in the condition of “original sin.” [Psalm 51:5 ; Romans 5:12] But, we humans not only are born with sin, we willfully sin. We sin against God’s holiness and His commandments – and, against our neighbor by our wrongful actions (practice). Genesis 6:5-6,11 ; Genesis 8:21


Beneath the rejection of Christ, part and parcel of the unbelieving soul, is that because of his [its] unregenerate state, there can be no understanding (comprehension) of Biblical truths. Scripture itself explains this "roadblock:"

"But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians 2:14

Note: The “they” in this [above] verse are the “[spiritual] blessings of God,” which, of course include forgiveness of sins and a right standing with God, both now, and in a heavenly eternity.

What then will you do, - you who actually realize your sinfulness?

I love the one hymn lyric from the age-old hymn, “Rock of Ages:”

Not the labors of my hands can fulfill Thy Law’s demands.
Could my zeal no respite know, could my tears forever flow
All for sin could not atone; Thou must save, and Thou alone. - [TLH-1941-CPH]

Sinner – there is nothing you can do to gain God’s good favor, His forgiveness and His holy heaven

You can sadly attempt to manufacture some sorry. You can even adopt some type of 5 point formula and pray a “sinner’s prayer.” You can even attend church and walk to an altar. But, those actions without the Holy Spirit calling you to [genuine] faith will not make one (iota) of blest difference before God.

Nothing in my hand I bring, Simply to Thy cross I cling.
Naked, come to Thee for dress; helpless, look to Thee for grace.
Foul, I to the fountain fly, - wash me, Savior, or I die! - [TLH-1941-CPH]

Friends, it takes the God initiated faith to even admit your sinful condition. It takes God’s Holy Spirit working in you to convict you of your sin before him and for you to come to an utter realization of your sinfulness and helplessness. Your priceless soul desperately needs to realize that Christ was born for you; that He lived the perfect life that you could never live; that He suffered and died, as God's perfect sacrifice for your sins; and that He rose from the dead to evidence His victory over sin and its eternal death consequences which grip your priceless soul!

He did all that for you! God's just wrath and punishment for your sins was poured out on Christ for you. And, as a result, Christ's accomplish work absolves you before a holy God. Because of Christ, your heavenly attorney, your guilty plea is dismissed in God's Court of Law.

When you, in genuine faith believe Christ; when you truly accept His sacrifice gift of forgiveness on your behalf, then He is truly yours for now and eternity. God will no longer damn you because of your sins, but, accept and receive you because of His only begotten Son, who lived and died in your stead.

But faith to believe all what God has done for you on your present and eternal behalf, isn't yours to glibly come by.

The Scripture says:

“……no man can say that Jesus is Lord, but by the Holy Spirit.” 1 Corinthians
12:3

Also, Christ as recorded in the Gospel of John 1:1f said:

"No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:44

Note: See also Titus 3:5 ; John 1:12,13

It takes saving faith to believe in Christ, the Savior. Since the Scripture relates the obvious that we can’t drum up that faith (in anyway, shape or form) on our own, we must rely upon the mercy and grace of God. And, the good news, is that God says that faith comes by His revelation gift, the Bible. [Romans 1:16 ; Romans 10:17 ; Acts 8:26-39 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ; James 1:18] We are also told that those same Scriptures “make us wise to salvation, through faith in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:14-17

May you, who are dead and dying in your sins [Ephesians 2:1-10] humbly put away from yourself all personal notions and biases that you have had, against God’s revelation book, the Bible. May you cast aside the skepticism of your "learned" past and eagerly search with child-like glee upon this wonder book which is God’s vehicle (through His Holy Spirit’s workings) to create saving faith within your needy and priceless soul!


Amen.

Alas, my God, my sins are great, my conscience doth upbraid me.
And now now I find that in my strait no man hath pow'r to aid me.

And fled I hence in my despair in some lone spot to hide me.
My griefs would still be with me there and peace still be denied me.

Lord, Thee I seek. I merit naught; yet pity and restore me.
Just God, be not, Thy wrath my lot. Thy Son hath suffered for me. - [TLH-1941-CPH]
