Merry Christ-mas, Mr. President: An Open Letter to President Obama ^ | December 18, 2011 | Michael Youssef

Posted on 12/18/2011 6:40:01 AM PST by Kaslin

Dear Mr. Obama,

From the time you declared your candidacy for president of the United States and announced under your breath that you are a Christian, many true, Bible-believing Christians immediately had doubts about your muffled profession of faith. After all, for 20 years you drank deeply from the well of Rev. Jeremiah Wright — who, in spite of the clerical garb he wears, preaches a Universalist gospel. It is not the true gospel that Jesus proclaimed, which clearly states that He and He alone is the only way to heaven and the Father. That claim was for all people of the earth.

The Bible is not ambiguous, Mr. President, as you and some of your Universalist friends believe. Jesus made it clear in John 14:6 that He alone is “the way, the truth, and the life.” Furthermore, the Bible testifies in Acts 4:12 that “there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” except the name of Jesus.

That, Mr. Obama, is true Christianity.

Be that as it may, millions of Bible-believing Christians gave you the benefit of the doubt and decided to wait and see. After all, in the words of our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, “By their fruit you will recognize them” (Matt. 7:20). Many in the Evangelical community deliberately refused to judge you by your questionable associates and friends; they wanted to see for themselves.

And sadly, Mr. President, you deeply disappointed them.

Not only did you use endearing, even fawning, statements and declarations regarding Islam and Muslims, but you deliberately treated the National Day of Prayer underhandedly. While publicly recognizing every Muslim holy day in the past year, you failed to issue an Easter proclamation in 2011. You chose not to mention the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is, after all, the foundational bedrock of your Christian faith and the very reason why our nation celebrates Easter.

The limits of time and space do not afford me the luxury of enumerating your many anti-biblical and anti-Christian executive orders and policies. But I must speak to the bombshell of December 6, 2011.

You see. Mr. President, there are persecuted Christians in your home country of Indonesia, as well as in Nigeria. And thanks to your indecisive and failed policies, we have added Egypt to the list. These beleaguered Christians have always looked to the United States for encouragement and affirmation. But when they look to you, they find none.

Imagine, Mr. Obama, their dismay that you have not publicly threatened to tie foreign aid — which is the taxpayers’ money, not the government’s — to stopping the church burnings and the severe persecution and killings of Christians in Egypt. Yet on December 6, your administration did decide to publicly threaten to tie American taxpayer money in the form of foreign aid to the support of gay and lesbian rights.

You surely know, Mr. Obama, that as Christians, while we see homosexuality as the Bible sees it … a sin, we never hate nor advocate the killing of homosexuals. That is something left to your dear “friends” in the Muslim world; something they do to both homosexuals and Christians on a regular basis.

The White House declared that this announcement, “marked the first U.S. government strategy to combat human rights abuses against gays and lesbians abroad.” This was no great comfort to desperate and persecuted Christians worldwide.

One final question, Mr. President.

If you are a true Christian, as you claim under your breath, why do you not feel that same passion and commitment toward your brothers and sisters in Christ, who are paying for their faith with their lives?

May the Lord’s hand guide you to all truth.

This is my regular prayer for you.

As Roget would say, "mr. president, you are 'not genuine, fake, counterfeit, forged, sham, spurious, bogus, specious, mock, pretended; artificial, imitation [a bad one at best], synthetic, false, fraudulent, deceptive, trick, unreal, pseudo, unauthentic, untrue. he says he's a [president], but I'm sure he's a phony'"...not to mention a "fake, sham, fraud, counterfeit, imitation [a bad one at best] make-believe, synthetic, fraud, hoax, forgery." Any questions?

The Bible makes it clear - YES!

Just not going to happen in our time, but in His time.

I never bought into the whole “Obama’s a Muslim” thing. If anything, I figured he was just an agnostic who saw that to get ahead in politics 9 times out of 10 you still need to call yourself a Christian and found a congregation he could attach himself to.

From Obama’s books:



‘Audacity of Hope: “LOLO (Obama’s step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....”I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE”.


Obama authorizes additional 80,000 Muslims to entry country

. Obama said the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth,” in an interview with Nicholas Kristof, published in The New York Times. Kristof described Obama’s recitation of the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, “with a first-class [Arabic] accent.”

The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada:

“Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! I witness that there is no god but Allah I witness that there is no god but Allah I witness that Muhammad is his prophet... “

According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim’s complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam.

•His biological father was a Muslim.

•His stepfather was a Muslim.

•As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia.

•Barack Hussein 0bama’s first and middle names are Arabic Muslim names.

•0bama recited the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer, which includes a vow of fidelity to Islam, in flawless Arabic on a radio program. - Nikolos Kristoff, NYTs, 3-06-07

•On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth.”

•0bama belonged to Rev. Wright’s (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.

•0bama said that the U.S. is “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

•0bama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.

•President 0bama’s religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States “the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.”

•0bama falsely attributes Muslim participation in the founding of America.

•0bama required that the cross be covered when he gave a speech at Notre Dame.

•Christian symbol covered up during Obama’s Georgetown speech

•0bama’s first major speech in office was a “Muslim outreach” speech in Cairo Egypt.

•“The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.

•0bama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the day’s end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.

•0bama tasked NASA with a mission of “Muslim outreach.”

•0bama referred to his faith as “my Muslim faith” in an interview with George Stephanopolous.

Obama admits he’s a Muslim

. Obama appoints Muslims to key security posts:

. Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where Obama told him that He was still a Muslim, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.

In 2001, Obama sponsored Illinois Senate Bill 750 creating the “Halal Food Act,” providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.

This act plays into Islamization. Here’s how it works and how Halal food plays a role:

“From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply (United States)

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam Contrasted With 10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity The Truth ^ | 7/7/11

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam

#1 "Islam has always been part of America"

#2 "we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities"

#3 "These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings."

#4 "America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings."

#5 "So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed"

#6 "Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality"

#7 "As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith."

#8 "I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month."

#9 "That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn't. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."

#10 "I also know that Islam has always been a part of America's story."

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

#1 "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation"

#2 "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation."

#3 "Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?"

#4 "Even those who claim the Bible's inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages - the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ's divinity - are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life."

#5 "The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics."

#6 From Obama's book, The Audacity of Hope: "I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount."

#7 "I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can't imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That's just not part of my religious makeup."

#8 "Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will--they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths."

#9 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: "If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount."

#10 "I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people."

Those are great quotes, and I’ve heard most of them, problem is most people have never heard them so a proven reference would be helpful.

#10 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

That is from a Christianity Today interview about 2008? That statement discounts him from being a Christian. His statements about Islam show him to be much more friendly. Is he Muslim? According to some Muslim interpretations we are all Muslim unless we rebel and turn to another religion. There is precedent in Islam for lying to the infidel when you are not in power which would fit this situation.

"I never bought into the whole “Obama’s a Muslim” thing."

Did you just step out of the WAY-BACK time machine or aren't you paying attention?

A long time ago, when I first read about GOD sending strong delusion (that people would believe a lie), I couldn't understand how that would be possible. However, seeing O'bummer lie day after day and many in the US swallow hook, line and sinker. Then, the next day, they embrace more lies. The sad thing is I don't believe O'bummer is the ultimate liar.

There's another man on the horizon who is going to turn this earth upside down! O'bummer is just paving the way for him.
