Number Two (John Adams), Meet Number Forty-Four (Barack Obama)
The second president of the United States once said, “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” I don’t think anyone in John Adam’s day doubted that he had a proper concept of God and His relation to man. Forty one presidents later (Grover Cleveland is counted twice) Americans are smothered with doubt regarding their president’s claim to be a Christian.
While many have faith in Obama’s claim to Christianity, nearly 20% of Americans now think he is a muslim. We must take care not to try to do God’s work for him. Obama’s ‘Christianity’ is something between he and God. We aren’t in a position to judge but we are taught to be fruit inspectors. Obama’s two years in office has been characterized by broken promises and crafty deceptions. (I won’t take time to elaborate, whole books have been written about it: see Michelle Malkin’s A Culture of Deception). Obama was the most radical pro-abortion U.S. senator in our history. He does not shy away from participating in Islamic worship and he is the most pro-sexual deviancy president in history. There is plenty of fruit to inspect and it’s mostly rotten to the core.
Obama may have crossed his Rubicon when he caved to Islamic influence by going soft on a mosque near ground zero. Many Americans would see this as a monument to a terroristic victory that claimed the lives of thousands of innocent Americans. Obama could have come out on the right side of this issue had he spoken out in defense of the victim’s families and the friends of perished firefighters. It’s no wonder so many question his claim to Christianity.
But few Americans have any doubts about whether Obama is maniacal in his lust for power and control. C. S. Lewis warned in his book, The Abolition of Man, that human nature would finally submit to manipulation and exploitation when a tyrannical cabal would successfully rule the masses. “Man’s quest of Nature, if the dreams of some scientific planners are realized, means the rule of a few hundreds of men over billions upon billions of men. …Each new power won by man is a power over man as well.”
C.S. Lewis warned about the dangers of a democracy when he wrote: “The natural trend in a democracy …. is for politicians to promise more and more to fulfill the multitude of incompatible desires of the populace. To meet these promises, they print reams of money and borrow in epic proportions. As the system becomes unstable and begins to collapse, the people call for a leader to bring them out of this crisis.”
Enter Barack Obama who promised to “fundamentally transform America”. No one really knew in what direction this intended change would go. We all know now. Is Barack Obama a Christian? Only God knows for sure. Is Barack Obama a utopian socialist? Who in America could doubt that? John Adams must be spinning in his grave.
