So Obama’s health care package has officially passed and there has been nothing but a tumult from those who call themselves “conservative Christians”. Seriously people! How about just shutting up and actually believing the Bible? There are so many people who do so many things that are unscriptural, all the while calling themselves Christians. It is no wonder many people don’t want what we have to offer.
“I like your Christ; I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” Mahatma Gandhi
So here’s what the Bible says about Barak Obama:
“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” Romans 13:1 (NIV)
Is it possible that Barak Obama was elected President of the United States by mandate from the Almighty? Is God sovereign? Are things under control where God is concerned? If that is true, maybe we Christians need to quit screaming with the Tea party, put down the signs, and go home and pray. The best thing we can do for Obama is to pray for his salvation and devotion to the will and ways of God. Instead of throwing stones at the prez, maybe we should tithe instead.
“Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.” Titus 3:1-2 (NIV)
