Obama v. Jesus for President

If Obama’s challenger for President was Jesus, would Obama win? Most likely, and many of the people who claim to be Christians and followers of Jesus would vote for Obama. There is a god we desire and the God that is. The god we desire likes what we like and promises what we like. The God that is tells us we are sinners who must repent and obey Him.
The god so many people desire (Obama) approves of homosexuality, abortion, and government redistribution of wealth to those who haven’t earned it. The God who is calls homosexuality and the killing of unborn babies “sin” and asks that His disciples voluntarily help others who are unable to provide for themselves.
Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright may actually see his curse, that “god damn” America, be fulfilled. Certainly a President that supports abortion, encourages homosexuality, and the redistribution of earned wealth to those who didn’t earn it will hasten the destruction of the America envisioned by its Founding Fathers—the Founding Fathers who appealed to the Supreme Judge of the Universe in their Declaration of Independence. Voters who support candidates that overtly challenge the commands and precepts of the God of the Bible are joining the candidate in his rebellion against the God who is, Jesus.
Should Obama win, his judicial appointments and Justice Department federal attorneys will be able to wage war against Christians for a long time—long after Obama’s term is over. In the end they will pay the price, but Christians should be prepared for restrictions on their speech and practices that will result from his presidency.
Proverbs 14: 12 “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”
Romans 1: 18“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man––and birds and four–footed animals and creeping things. 24Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. 28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil–mindedness; they are whisperers, 30backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
