Obama vs. Christianity

[COMMENT:   The list below of Obama's behavior is damning.   But equally damning is our tendency to go after these enemies of truth on the grounds of tradition, or long-standing usage (see first two lines below). 

Tradition and long-standing status does nothing to show that these traditions or usages are true and right.  We need to go after Obama, et al, on the grounds that they violate the sovereignty and law of God.  That is a provable case.   Tradition is not to be ignored, but it is not the last word, and must be supported by evidence independent of itself.  One cannot use a thing to prove itself -- unless there is a logical case that denial of the idea is itself contradictory.

But we have opposed reason to revelation, and are afraid to argue on the basis of the evidence because we Christians still, for the most part, do not think that evidence-gathering is of the Lord, that it is somehow demeaning to the written word of God.  That is a very long-standing ignorance and it is nonsense, showing an ignorance of the Bible (just for starters, see I Kings, 18:17ff. Elijah on Mount Carmel -- a scientific, up or down test -- commanded by God). 

We rejected the leadership of God when we began to distance ourselves from science for fear that an honest inspection of the evidence would disprove our case.  God does not want us to be truth-seekers???    God gave us science to sharpen for us the two-edged Sword of the Spirit.  But we thought we knew better. 

The problem is not the Obama's of the world, the problem is the position-defending Christians who do not know how to find the true position by truth-seeking.   Time for us to wake up!!!   Anything that is  not testable, or which someone will now allow to be tested (like himself) is NOT reliable.   "Test the spirits, to see of they are of God..."   That means, does it not, test the whole of the Bible.  How? by testing for factual accuracy and logical consistency.  That is science, and that is Biblical.  God is interested in fact and logic. 

To get back on the subject, having said all that, read the list below, it is indeed damning.  Obama is violating both fact and logic about the nature of politics and morality.       E. Fox]

Subject:FYI: Barton Calls Obama 'America's Most Biblically-Hostile U.S. President'

America�s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President David Barton

America's Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President

When one observes President Obama's unwillingness to accommodate America's four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.

Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islams activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.

1. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:

2. Acts of hostility from the Obama-led military toward people of Biblical faith:

3. Acts of hostility toward Biblical values:

4. Acts of preferentialism for Islam:

Many of these actions are literally unprecedented � this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.
