After reading about “Joe the Plumber’s” take on Obama being a Chistian, I would have to conclude that the pipes he works on in his trade have more intelligence, than he. Mr. Samuel Wurzelbacher, apparently, is either a very ignorant Christian, and / or he is being beguiled by Obama’s snake charming talk. Or, yet, another possibility, Joe the Plumber is being paid off to say this off the wall stuff about Obama being a Christian. I suppose if Satan himself came to Joe the Plumber and claimed to be a Christian, Mr. Wurzelbacher would be as gullible to believe that, also!
The sad and pathetic reality is, that by and large the Christian world here in America believed Obama’s lies when he stated that he was a Christian. These same naive voters did not pay attention to the fact that Obama attended a pseudo Christian church for twenty years being exposed by the notorious Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s thumping and radical sermons. As I stated in this blog’s posted title – “Obama is no more Christian, than the man in the moon.” Here’s the reason Barack Hussein Obama, [despite his full name] is not a genuine Christian:
Christ taught His followers that they were to judge a 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? After all, did not Jesus Christ, Himself, say: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Gospel of Matthew, chapter 7 and especially verse, 7:21
Note: Joel Olsteen making the same mistake as Joe the Plumber:
Recently there was (also) the news about the Christian mega-church leader, Joel Olsteen expressing his assertion that Obama is a Christian. His reason? Essentially, because Obama said so, – the same (lame brained) excuse reason that Joe the Plumber, offered. Didn’t these two Christian buffoons ever learn that Jesus Christ distinguished between cheap talk and actual (meaningful) actions? Matthew 7:1f – christianpost.com/
Following, are 3 topical Christian messages, referencing Obama’s dismal failure to evidence true Christian faith. He, empathically, doesn’t. As Detrick Bonhoeffer once observed about being a genuine Christian: “He who believes, obeys; and he who obeys, believes.” [Paraphrase] Obama, neither believes or obeys – else his life and actions would evidence even the weakest of Christian faith:
Oh, yes – and, finally:
If there (still) is anyone who really believes that Obama is a genuine (practicing) Christian, you better think twice. His own words reveal his bogus (phony) Christian status:
“Obama Is No Joshua” — by Cal Thomas –…..Obama can call himself anything he likes, but there is a clear requirement for one to qualify as a Christian and Obama doesn’t meet that requirement. One cannot deny central tenets of the Christian faith, including the deity and uniqueness of Christ as the sole mediator between God and Man and be a Christian. Such people do have a label applied to them in Scripture. They are called “false prophets.” – calthomas.com/
