In the tradition of this blog, of tempting condemnation by citing extremely uncomfortable but nevertheless entirely
irrefutable facts, I'd like to take this one on directly. Naturally hysterical libs will do what they always do with this blog when it hits a nerve: they will mock it and paint it with a broad, dishonest brush, so please read carefully and intelligently, and have your Bible handy.
The reason I'm writing this is I just read a tweet, one of countless such remarks in social media over the years - and media is my business - saying in essence, "I know I am not being a good Christian, but I hate Obama." Or, "If I were not a good Christian, I would hate Obama." You get the picture. Many of these remarks are entirely sincerely expressed. Others, however, come from our friends the trolls who are paid to do that - indeed, the libs are now advertising on job hunting sites for "paid blog posters" to sit all day and spread Obama-protecting, Marxist propaganda.
Paid trolls are the front-ranks strategic enemy of a free nation and say many unconscionable things regardless of truth and with often the worst of possible intentions. A new one, for example, is "Never Forget
Benghazi." Think about that. What does that do to you emotionally in terms of wanting to take action to get to the bottom of the facts and see those responsible within the United states prosecuted? It dampens your resolve, doesn't it? Sure, you'll remember and be angry, but that doesn't hurt Obama. "Never forget" presumes anger but defeat on Benghazi. Like 9-11 won't be forgotten, but remembering it won't roll those buildings back up into the air and bring 3,000 people killed on that day back to life. Unlike 9-11, Benghazi is not a lesson to be learned for the future, it is a murder and a cover-up which needs to still be investigated and prosecuted today. "Never Forget Benghazi" is an absurdly obvious crafted manipulative message to anyone who knows media on a professional level - it's meant to make you accept it and "move forward". Don't accept it. Every time you see "Never Forget Benghazi", post back, "I won't forget and I am doing something about it by Tweeting the GOP Reps in public to get them to do their jobs. What are YOU doing about it?" You'll see "Never forget" vanish quickly and that's good. We and millions of others will remind everyone every single day, all day long, of Benghazi without the implied defeatism, thanks. Don't worry about it "being forgotten". As evidence of this blog/group's dedication, again:
No, we won't forget and we aren't going anywhere until this cover-up is blasted out into the sunlight and all guilty parties held to account and that's that.
So back to, "Is it Christian to hate Obama?"
The question is more a matter of, if you hate Obama are you being honest? If you don't hate him but say you are - if you are lying - that is against scripture, of course; not complicated - lying is forbidden (funny to consider that in today's world, isn't it?). But if you really feel he is wicked, if you feel in your gut he is evil, if you believe you hate him, this man whose first and last names are the same used by Jesus to describe Satan in the Book of Luke (look up "Lightning" and "Height" in a Hebrew-to-English translator sometime - trust me, you're in for a big shock), truly, then the answer is "Yes, it is not un-Christian to hate Obama." You can do it and you can say it. Out loud. To anyone.
For decades liberals and secularists have tried to manipulate Christian conservatives by twisting the image of Jesus the Peacemaker into Jesus the Weakling Ultra-Pacifist, because if he is weak as an example of goodness, you will follow that example and be easily defeated. Manipulation 101. Jesus, however, was not weak. He was strong and defiant and determined. He could be angry. He looked Kings in the eye and gave them a dose of reality no one else would dare to think of doing, and He did not die for that, He died because when they came for Him, knowing the Plan, He refused to hide or run. That is the example of Jesus Christ.
Here are some quotes from the King James version, which need no explanation in context:
- Psalm 5:4-5 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
- Psalm 11:5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
- Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
- Psalm 26:5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
- Psalm 97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
- Psalm 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
- Psalm 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
Jesus also got in people's faces, turned over the tables of the money-changers, and did any number of things the thought of which terrify liberals if enacted by large masses of millions of angry conservatives, as perhaps may now not be such a bad idea, provided no laws are broken.
Jesus was righteous, of course, as righteous as righteous can be, as the Living Son of God, and he fought for the abused and downtrodden, and he fought for His Father's Name for Its sake. And to help those who were innocent, abused and being led to corruption, and for it's own sake, he hated evil, and he hated those who performed evil and kept evil in their hearts. I don't say that. The Bible says that.
Partly, of course, for this discussion to have clarity, the question also in context and opinion must be, "is Obama evil"? Now, in today's world and Western society, "human evil" is seemingly really only allowed to be applied to one human being: Hitler (not Stalin who killed five-to-ten times more of his own citizens than Hitler because Stalin was Communist and to liberals communism is cool and they'd just rather not dwell too deeply on Stalin's "bad" side, so they change the subject to Hitler, thanks). The fact is, however, that Hitler is no barometer for evil as illustrated in scripture; Hitler is, essentially, 6 million times worse, and then some. The "evil bar" is not set nearly so high as those who dwell in their numbers, defend them and have been influenced by them would have us believe. "Evil" as illustrated and cited in the Bible can be readily understood as something we now take almost as commonplace. The kinds of people the Bible describes as evil can be found on police blotters around the world millions of times every day. That is an unpleasant but literal fact. That's not interpretation, that's fact, if they are guilty as charged, and the majority at any given time usually are.
So if you feel this man Obama,who we know has lied - many times over including about a video causing the Benghazi killing, a lie told to the parents of the dead - who we know supported the killing of living babies who survived abortions, who at the very least turned his back on those murdered in Benghazi and has somehow silenced - or worse - 33 survivor eyewitnesses to the events, if you feel Obama is evil by the benchmark set in the Bible, then yes, it is quite and entirely clear you may hate him. You may not do physical harm against him, but you can hate him and positively do whatever is both legal and within Biblical law to remove him from power, absolutely. In fact, to be perfectly blunt about it, to follow Jesus' example, you essentially have an obligation to do so. That's not a joke. Intense, determined, righteous hate, as Jesus hated, as God hates, is a very fine motivator for that, as hatred for Hitler inspired millions to defeat him against, for a time, increasingly pessimistic chances for success.
If you feel at-odds with this column because of the way you were raised, please don't argue it with me, argue it with God and His Son, Jesus Christ, because I am only quoting their words, not mine, and there is no conclusion to draw, per se, as the facts are inarguable. Re-stating an easy prediction made at the outset, of course liberals will be forced to say this column is "unhinged", because if I am not crazy, in the larger sense, their agenda is in a lot of trouble!
So please don't say, "I know it's not Christian to hate Obama." You are basing your behavior and self-recrimination on the words you hear on television, not the word of God.
