The Sinister Spiritual Scandal Beneath All the Obama Political Scandals
By Guest Column Robert Bowie Johnson, Jr. Saturday, June 8, 2013
As the revelations of Obama’s political deceits continue to unfold, we need to remind ourselves that, at their root, there lies a profoundly sinister spiritual fraud.
In a pamphlet distributed during the 2008 South Carolina primary, Obama boasted that he was a “committed Christian” and that he was a man who “knew the Scriptures.” Obama went on to say, in that same pamphlet, that from a sermon at Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church, “I learned that my sins could be redeemed.”
Sins redeemed? In the Scriptures, our sins are forgiven (John 20:23), pardoned (Mark 2:5), taken away (John 1:29), cleansed (Hebrews 1:3), and erased (Acts 3:19). Never are our sins said to be redeemed; that is, bought back or brought back. God redeems us (Galations 3:13), our souls (I Kings 1:29), and our lives (Psalms 103:4), not our sins.
Taking his own words at face value, Obama tells us that at Wright’s church, he learned he could continue to walk in his sins, and still claim to be a “committed Christian.”
Obama learned from Wright how to be a Marxist while hiding behind a facade of Christianity. But try as he might, Obama cannot portray himself as a “committed Christian” without the counterfeit nature of those assertions oozing darkly through his empty religious rhetoric, demonstrating for the umpteenth time that “The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain” (I Corinthians 3:20).
On September 28, 2010, at a campaign barbecue in Albuquerque, Obama said he became a Christian because the “precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead, being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper . . .” Jesus never expressed any such precept. In all of Scripture, only the liar and murderer, Cain, used the term “brother’s keeper.” Never are we urged by the inspired Word of our Creator to be our “brother’s keeper.” The word keeper in the Hebrew has an imprisoning connotation: “to be hedged about as with thorns.” The apostle Paul teaches, “For freedom Christ frees us” (Galations 5:1).
Attempting to force the words of Cain into the mouth of Christ is more than a gross misunderstanding of Scripture; it is an abject, intentional distortion of it.
The way of Cain rejects God and exalts the perverse reasonings of mankind. The apostle John wrote that “Cain was of the wicked one” (I John 3:12), and so is Barack Hussein Obama. Presenting Cain’s words as if they were Christ’s reveals what is truly in Obama’s mind and heart: a lying spirit, what the apostle John called “the spirit of deception” (I John 4:6).
In his February 2012 prayer breakfast speech, the “committed Christian” Obama revealed that his faith is not in God or in Christ. He said that he has “faith in the idea that I am my brother’s keeper and I am my sister’s keeper.” Cain’s words, not Christ’s, serve as the basis of our president’s “faith.”
Obama does not know the Scriptures: He knows how to use the Scriptures to deceive the ignorant and the unstable. In two chapters of my book Outing the Moronocracy, I present example after example of Obama’s contempt for the Sacred Scriptures, his willingness to twist them in order to deceive others, and his intent to usurp their power for his own nefarious ends.
There is one more example that magnifies the fact that Obama’s entire life is a sinister spiritual fraud. We are enjoined by the apostle Paul not to be “walking in craftiness nor yet adulterating the Word of God” (II Corinthians 4:2). Obama does exactly that in Dreams from My Father, an autobiographical account of his imagined racial grievances against America and white society. Obama dedicates his book by quoting I Chronicles 29:15 thus: “For we are strangers before THEM, and sojourners, as were all our fathers” (My emphasis), giving the impression that there is scriptural validation for the festering racial resentments nursed by this man of extraordinary privilege.
