Senator Obama (D-Illinois) boldly declared in a campaign speech recently that states should legalize “same-sex unions” for homosexuals. “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount,” says Obama. “Which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.
I’m going to write the Sermon on the Mount for you, and we’re going to go through and see if we can find where Obama thinks that Jesus sermon advocates for Sodomized marriage…Ok, this is going to be lengthy, so bear with me, I’ll make short follow ups for each passage – Matthew chapters 5, 6, & 7.
Starting in chapter 5 – ‘And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” What’s Jesus saying? For those who live according to God’s Word, according to the Spirit of God. In doing this, there will be people who will persecute you for His sake, because you live by the word and not of the flesh.
“You are the salt of the earth; how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot b hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Meaning: Go and witness to the lost – sinners, be obedient to the Spirit. Christ died once for all, and gave us His redeeming grace; now it is our duty to try to communicate with others this same forgiveness, that they may turn from their sin and be saved.
Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therfore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.” Meaning: We are bound to the Law of God. We are not to distort the Word to justify worldly desires. It means what it says, and anything else will reap Eternal loss of our Soul.
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, You shall not murder,’ and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment. But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council, But whoever says, You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer , and you be thrown into prison. Assuredly, I say to you, you will be no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny. Meaning: Instead of harboring extreme hatred and anger in your heart for those whom you think have wronged you, and trying to get even with them – go to that person immediately and forgive them, and if they don’t accept the forgiveness, then you leave it to the Holy Spirit in prayer to deal with that person as He sees fit. The Holy Spirit can work on a persons’ conscience and later prove that they were wrong and friendship can be attained once again through the working of the Holy Spirit through conviction. Provided that their conscience hasn’t been given over to Satan.
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to your that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. And if your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. “And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut if off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.” Meaning: He’s referring to the sins of the flesh; and that we must abstain from them in order to live a clean and Holy life. The illustrations to show that sin is sin, and that God does not contradict, compromise, or show favoritism, or discount one sin over the other, they are all sin. Adultery, homosexuality, fornication, murder, are all sin.
“Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.” Meaning: Wives remain faithful to your husbands…husbands remain faithful to your wives. If contraversy should arise, divorce and do not remarry, for it is considered unclean in the eyes of the Lord. It’s a life committment.
“Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, you shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your ;Yes; be “Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one. Meaning: To live for the Lord, we must show absolute conscieousness to the Word and to the Holy Spirit, there is no justifying one thing that is unjustifiable in the Lord’s eyes, no straddling the fence. You are either with the Lord, or without Him.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone wants to sue you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away. Meaning: He is saying to be patient, and you have to remember here, Jesus is always referring in a Spiritual sense, if you share the Word of God with someone and they want to resent it the first time, then go with him the extra mile to prove that you believe, and it can also be said that this is the way God tests our own faith, is when people question you to find proof. So be patient.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. Meaning: We are called to mercy, where there is no mercy, lest we be tempted and fall to Satan’s wishes. In a hypothetical situation, we can find this to be true when Atheists in a mean spirited way denounce and call us profane names for what we do, and then we are tempted to strike back being critical not showing mercy.
Chapter 6 – “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hands is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. Meaning: It means just as it says, we are not to make a big scene when we do something to help the needy, we are to do it quietly without praise from men, from whom we have no hope. Our hope is in the Lord, and that’s what this passage is all about, it’s about Faith. Our Faith touches others in a more profound way when we share with them in a one on one basis.
“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to, they have their reward. But you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. But when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
For if you forgive men their trespasses,your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not frgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Meaning: This is again to show that if you pray in the silence of your home, that you have Faith. God notices how we serve Him, and if all we do is seek recognition from the world, then God is not pleased, you are placing more faith in men than you are God. So pray in silence to show God that you truly believe in Him.
“Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have thier reward. But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. Meaning: It is Faith. That you love the Lord with all your heart, all your strength, and all your soul.
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth., where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaqven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Meaning: If you love the Lord, then earthly things have no meaning, such as fancy cars, million perhaps more than million-dollar homes, expensive jewelry, things that would take precedence over the Eternal reward that God has in store for those who love Him. This earth is going to pass away friends, Heaven and Hell are going to last forever, time immortal.
“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be fulll of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!’ Meaning: We are to be examples of Our Lord, and this shows to all who see this light in us. There’s a song called – This little light of mine! A perfect illustration of the Christian walk.
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Meaning: You cannot serve or worship both God and money, just as Jesus described earlier, ‘to lay up your treasures in heaven. Where moth and dust do not destroy.’
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are younot of more value than they? Which of yu by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Meaning: I think verse 33 sums this passage and all of chapter 6.
Chapter 7 – “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you ill be judged; and with the same measure you use, it will b measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your won eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck out of your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye. Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces. Meaning: What Jesus is illustrating here, is that we are to study God’s Word so that we may be better equipped to handle any situation, and that we base our judgments on the Holy Writ. The illustration about dogs and swine, is talking about Atheists, and those who have been given over to a reprobate mind … to try and share the Word of God with these folks is useless, and is blasphemous to this precious Word of God. The world will always try and make it sound like foolishness. But the Word speaks for itself, in which ii backs itself up, front to back, back to front.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Meaning: Jesus is describing to the people that earthly morals are evil, they are corrupt, and have no hope in them. And the only thing that will make a difference in this world is showing others how to live from God’s Word, especially the children. Parents should be showing their children how to live Holy and righteous lives, instead of video games that will lead them to a life of depression and evil thinking.
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and ther are few who find it.” Meaning: Here, Jesus is saying that there’s only one way to heaven, and that is through the teaching of this book. That’s why it’s imperative that we continually fast and pray for direction that we not be drawn to the world.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad ree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear had fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” Meaning: Anyone whose doctrine or belief system deviates from this book, is not teaching truth. There’s only one way to the Father and that’s through Jesus Christ, ‘No man can come to the Father except through Me.’ Jesus said.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. Now everyone who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” Meaning: Our bodies are to be temples of the Lord, for God does not dwell in temples made with hands…..His temple is in the hearts of those who love Him, and the only way we will have our Eternal reward is through a dedicated relationship with Jesus Christ, without sin.
So, It’s clear to anyone who has an understanding of the bible and Jesus message that He never condoned, or supported sodomy. That Obama dismisses Paul’s message against homosexuality in the book of Romans, shows just how little he knows and “understands” of Jesus life and what He taught.
This is all the more reason to assume that Obama’s early lif is showing a more negative response to the majority of Americans who identify as ‘Christian,; and rightly so. He identifies with Jesus, but resents those whom Jesus appointed to do His work in spreading the Gospel, as they risked life and limb, all they had to win souls to Christ. Most if not all of them became martyrs on their missions. It’s too bad that Obama can’t see the truth for what it truly is.
The liberal Media is clearly going along with Obama in his promotion for a deviant society.
That is the world for you, folks.
Satan is in control of this world … just temporarily though.
Jesus called him, ‘The Prince of this world.’ or ‘Prince of darkness.’
Satan’s ways are attractive to those who are lost and living in darkness; he delivers a message in which he appeals to the flesh, through unnatrual desires…no doubt, this is true … for we see a society riddled with promiscuity here in America — Two, three, perhaps four men living with one woman; having drunken, dope snorting orgies … literally wasting their life away.
Our TVs have become places where young childrens’ minds are subjected to drugs, violence, vulgarity and unlimited, uncensored sex.
Our schools are possibly worst of all; in which they are taught by their “teachers” what they deeem an “education.” Homosexuality is “ok” and have “as many partners or relationships as you want” And we know where this type of lifestyle leads … AIDS, Gonnorhea, herpes, depression, anxiety disorders, suicidal thoughts … the saddest thing of all, young teenage girls take their anger and frustration out on their unborn children. In most cases, however, these innocent babies are mudered for more sexual gratification. The cruelest and sickest of any practice on earth.
Indeed, a sad state of affairs. As Robert Bork wrote, ‘We are headed toward Gomorrah. Ever closer … America edges toward her doom, as each day, each hour, each minute, and each second passes us by.
This is what happens when people fail to serve God, when they fail to pray, when they fail to study their Bibles, when they fail to join hands with God’s people in the Church, asking for direction and strength to overcome Satan and his evil snares.
Reach out to somebody today, and witness to them about the Love of Jesus Christ, for tomorrow holds no promise for anyone … only those who have made that committment, have turned from their sin, and have asked Jesus Christ into their life.
