Government: America's New God
I was around nine years old when Dad took me to see the movie The Ten Commandments, starring Charlton Heston, at the Town Theater in downtown Baltimore. It was a big deal for us because the theater had just begun admitting blacks.
Etched in my brain is the scene when Moses came down from the mountain to witness the Israelites engrossed in an orgy of self-indulgence, celebrating the new god they created, a golden calf. They had abandoned God to worship a man-made false god.
I chastised fellow black Christians for worshiping a false god of skin-color, monolithically voting to give Obama a second term despite their awareness of his anti-biblical agenda. However, I have come to realize that the insidious spirit of anti-Christ emanating from the Obama administration has spread far and wide.
All historical rules for winning and losing elections do not apply to Obama. His political bullying power and irrational status as a cult hero are unprecedented.
But here is the kicker and the scariest truth about America's zombie-like loyalty to Obama. On November 6, 2012, half the country, which includes millions of Christians, chose a Democrat and media man-made "golden man" idol as their "new" Lord and Savior. Amazingly, actor and Obama disciple Jamie Foxx admitted it.
While Obama appears to be the "golden" idol and focus of worship, America's real new false god is government, hidden behind Obama's well-crafted shiny gold exterior.
The Israelites surrendered the gold items (their inheritance) brought with them from Egypt to build their new golden calf idol. In like fashion, Democrats and the media convinced millions of Americans to surrender their biblical principles, freedom, and liberty (their birthright) to build a golden idol of government. Many Americans have abandoned God to worship government, a new supposed all-powerful and all-giving man-made false god. Dear Lord, help us!
The Bible warns that false prophets will arise and deceive many (Matthew 24:4-5).
Obama is a false prophet. He persuaded millions to vote their vested interest, sacrificing biblical principles, law, freedom, and liberty. I am hearing of more black Christian pastors, in worship of their new god Obama/government, coming out in favor of gay marriage. While Jesus praised investors and rebuked the coward afraid to invest in the parable of the talents, Obama has demonized investors -- branding them reckless and greedy.
God's word says prosperity is achieved via hard work. "You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you" (Psalms 128:2).
Proverbs 10:4: "Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth."
Obama, in essence, calls God a liar by declaring that prosperity is achieved via government redistribution.
Rest assured: Democrats and the media will pull out all the stops to make Obama's second inauguration just short of the second coming -- an All-Hail-Our-King/Messiah spectacular. I wouldn't put it past Obama's special effects buddies in Hollywood to arrange for his entrance to feature him descending from the heavens on a cloud as Beyoncé and a mass choir sings "Hosanna to Our King."
As in the movie The Ten Commandments, Obama's inauguration will be an orgy of idolatry in worship of the left's golden man, who is really fronting for their god, government. Millions will offer up tears of admiration.
The American left (Socialists/Progressives) are elated. Finally, there is a new god in town, and it ain't the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and our Founding Fathers. Is the left's jubilation justified? Do a majority of Americans now look to Obama/government to supply all their needs, including deciding who lives and who dies (death panels buried in ObamaCare), rather than the God on which our country was founded?
Unquestionably, Obama's re-election has emboldened his disciples to politically bludgeon us into submission to their Godless agenda. For example: Obama-ites are attempting to bully/punish the pope and the Catholic Church for not embracing homosexuality.
Using typical Democrat tactics of lies and misdirection, Obama-ites claimed that conservatives had a "War on Women" while hiding their real horrific War on Babies. Planned Parenthood's annual report showed record profits and a record number of abortions: 333,964 in 2011. I wonder if the geniuses who could have cured cancer and AIDS were among the murdered.
Taxpayers, against their will, funded PP with $542 million. Further usurping divine authority and sticking his finger in the eye of God, Obama has decreed (mandated in ObamaCare) that Christians will fund abortion and contraceptive services against their faith.
My fellow Americans, we are in the midst of a cultural and spiritual war for the heart, mind, and soul of America. Moses asked, "Who is on the Lord's side, let him come unto me." I ask the same.
