I really didn’t want to write about this, but the media keeps shoving it under my nose–and it stinks.
First consider the following, from the Bible: And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, “It is the voice of a god, and not of a man!” And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost. (Acts 12:21-23)
On Jan. 18, the online edition of Newsweek trumpeted this headline–The Second Coming–over a profile picture, a mug shot, of Barack Obama. Obviously the news-distorting media see this person as a god. They’ve done it before and they’re doing it now. You can see video of Al Roker, once a man who had some smatch of honor and integrity, carrying on like a 14-year-old groupie when he sees Obama.
Herod Agrippa claimed to be a Jew; but when the pagans from Tyre and Sidon hailed him as a god, he didn’t venture to correct them. We can easily imagine him smirking, until the angel of the true God smote him.
Obama claims to be a Christian, ROFL. But he hasn’t corrected any of these media morons who liken him to Christ. He just smirks and purrs. For the record, when Paul and Barnabas visited the city of Lystra, in Asia Minor, and the people of the city hailed them as the pagan gods Jupiter and Mercury come down to earth–and indeed were about to sacrifice some oxen to them!–the two apostles strenuously corrected the error. (Acts 14:11-18) : And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them (v. 18).
What do you suppose this jerk in the White House would do if some pagans from the media wanted to sacrifice a couple of cows to him?
In not protesting and rejecting these extravagant depictions of himself as Christ, Obama has committed a grievous sin for which he will be sternly judged.
I think his worshipers will be in trouble, too.
