We are into 2013 and fast track is the mindset of our government.
The President’s all out effort to rebuke anything Godly is not only showing up in his actions and ill fated policies but his manners.
His arrogant, bitter fight against Christian conservatives and anyone who has any money at all is written all over his face. His smirks are distasteful; his accusations reek of a teenage revolt and his proverbial “slaps on the hands of those he deems wrong” are repulsive.
Looking for some remote positive characteristic in him has not been easy. If there is one, and that is “if” it might be he is a loyal husband and decent father.
I wonder. Does he teach his 2 daughters to strive to make something of themselves or become a welfare recipient?
Does he teach them guns are unsafe while they are guarded 24/7 by armed guards and our military?
Has he taught them anything about money? And if so, what is it?
And what about his religious conviction to Christianity?
“First and foremost, my Christian faith gives me a perspective and security that I don’t think I would have otherwise: that I am loved. That, at the end of the day, God is in control,” Obama said. Obama also tied faith in God to his belief in a compassionate role for government. http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/08/obama-talks-about-his-faith-132696.html
Job 41: 34”He sees everything that is high; he is king over all the sons of pride.”
Following his footsteps are many in his administration and lawmakers who have inherited his traits, by choice I might add.
Once re-elected the President reinstated his heir of superiority and heightened cockiness he began in his first term.
Our government should be a good example of character, honesty, fiscal awareness, and positive manners. Don’t look at Washington; you won’t find any of that there.
“I have a job to do as President, and that does not involve convincing folks that my faith in Jesus is legitimate and real.”
Our leaders have a job based on the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. I wonder how they would feel reading the above statement. If his faith is legitimate and real he shouldn’t have to worry about convincing folks; it would automatically reveal itself.
Dr. Keith Ablow, Psychiatrist has written a compelling article about our youth, college students or young adults as deluded narcissists. The belief is this age group is gifted and well above any other generation scholastically; yet test scores have decreased.
Technology is one culprit in this toxicity ruining our young people. The availability of unlimited pieces of equipment from computers to games to phones indulges their self-respect into depression, hatred of others and social amputations.
Another culprit is the examples being set before them. When the President uses his pulpit as a rabble-rounding firebrand, people notice including the young people.
Why should I live within my means when the President advocates the opposite?
Why should I work when the President pays people not to work?
If the President can stand in front of the world and ridicule others why can’t I?
“All the while, these adolescents, teens and young adults are watching a Congress that can’t control its manic, euphoric, narcissistic spending, a president that can’t see his way through to applauding genuine and extraordinary achievements in business, a society that blames mass killings on guns, not the psychotic people who wield them.” Dr. Keith Ablow Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/01/08/are-raising-generation-deluded-narcissists/#ixzz2HWuqLIyp
The battles wage on as the war expands.
God holds each of us accountable for our actions, especially leaders. As they preach behind their microphones accountability is futile, so will our children believe the same. The Bible is clear about leading the young ones astray.
Luke 17:2 “It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.”
“Faith can express itself in people in many ways, and I think it is important that we not make faith alone a barometer of a person’s worth, value, or character,” Obama said.
Woe is you Mr. President.
