20 Obama Quotes About Islam Contrasted With 20 Obama Quotes About Christianity

Taking Back America

From The Truth

Obama messiah
 
You are about to read some of the most shocking quotes that Barack Obama has ever uttered in public.  A few of these have been widely circulated, but most of them are very obscure.  Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions.  In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all “people of faith” believe in the same God.  At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as “the Prophet”, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to…

Are you a ‘believer in exile’ — I invite you to try God, again

By Anne Graham Lotz

Have you tried God?

Did you used to go to church?

Why aren’t you going to church now?

Without implying you are a statistic, research indicates that 83% of all American adults consider themselves to be Christian, but the majority of them are unchurched.

Why?

The primary reason people avoid church, pollsters say, even though they consider themselves Christian, is because of wounds they have received within the family of faith.

Has that been your experience? Is that why you are hanging out on the periphery of God’s people?

I understand. I, too, have been driven from church fellowship by wounds that were inflicted on me by other church members.

The primary reason people avoid church, pollsters say, even though they consider themselves Christian, is because of wounds they have received within the family of faith.

I have found myself living as a “believer in exile,” not running from God, but tired of putting up with those who call themselves by His name, yet behave in an ungodly manner.

Jesus understands, too. It never ceases to amaze me that the most vicious lies, the most violent attacks, the ultimate rejection of Jesus, came not from the Romans or the Greeks or the pagans or the secularists, but from Israelites who were considered, by themselves and others, the children of God. God’s people.

One primary reason I have not forsaken my own Christian faith is that I know Jesus “gets it.” He was literally wounded…crucified…by very religious people who considered themselves God’s representatives on earth, but were nothing of the sort. They were wicked, sinful pretenders.

So I refuse to let religious phonies destroy my heart for the One who loves me, who understands and feels my pain, and who draws close to me when I am wounded. I refuse to be robbed of life’s greatest treasure—a personal, permanent, passionate relationship with God through faith in Jesus, and the healing of wounds that He offers.

As painful and devastating as wounds inflicted by God’s people can be, they have made me more determined to authentically live out what I believe.

I am deeply motivated to know God. I want to know Him as He truly is, not through the distorted reflection of those who call themselves by His name. And I want to make Him known to others as accurately, winsomely, clearly, and compellingly as I can.

And God is knowable. He has declared that He is light. (1 John 1:5) Since one of the primary characteristics of light is that it makes itself visible, God is saying He has made Himself visible.

He can be clearly seen in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ. And He can be seen in the pages of the unique revelation of Himself, which we call the Bible.

If your focus in on the people of God, the Light can seem dim or even dark. So don’t look at them. Look at Him.

Try God…again.

The FAITH of Obama

http:/

I do not claim to know what President Obama believes in his heart. I can tell you, based on his behavior, that he is no follower of Christ. It becomes crystal clear when watching the video of Alan Keyes and Barak Obama in this video from a senatorial debate just how empty his perception of Jesus is. Jesus said He IS the way, the truth, and the life. There is only one way to God, and that is through Jesus!

President Obama claims he spent twenty years in Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Church. Reverend Wright is hardly a man that encourages his members to love their neighbors as themselves, which is what Jesus taught is the second most important commandment He gave. The most important commandment was to the love the Lord your God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. He said if you love me you will keep My commandments. Jeremiah Wright is known to speak out against the United States, Israel, and the Jewish people.

I don’t know if Obama is Muslim or not, but he is certainly sensitive to the Islamic goals. He sides with the Muslim brotherhood, and has demonstrated distain for Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He has even gone so far to make it a high priority to encourage Muslims in NASA’s space program. How can someone who claims to be a Christian have such animosity towards other Christians, Jews, and Israel?

Why has Obama been silent when Christians and Jews in the Middle East are being slaughtered on a daily basis? How can he even consider arming rebels in Syria that have demonstrated hate towards the United States and Israel?

We will all be held accountable for the things that we do in this life. If Obama is truly a follower of Jesus, he needs to wake up and realize what this battle is all about, instead of making statements before the general assembly of the United Nations that the future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.

WHY I BELIEVE THE BIBLE, AND WHY YOU SHOULD TOO

Reason number 9

The ninth reason I’m giving for the reason I believe the Bible is the person of Jesus Christ. I’m sure there are many that do not believe he was the Messiah, or God’s son, but based on what the Bible has to say, there is ample evidence to show that He is both.

The Bible contains well 300 prophecies about Jesus. These prophecies address nearly every aspect of His life. Specifics about His birth, ministry, and death are given in the minutest detail. Secular historical writer, Simon Sebag Montefiore, wrote in his national Bestseller, Jerusalem, that “it is clear that (Jesus) was steeped in knowledge of the Jewish Bible and everything he did was a meticulous fulfillment of its prophecies.” Even a secular writer can acknowledge that, but so many of the prophecies concerning Jesus life were items that were out of His control. No mater how meticulous He was he was unable to orchestrate events surrounding his bloodline, birth, method of his execution, and events that included other people, even after His death.

Luke 24:13-27 tells a story about two men who were walking to Emmaus after Jesus was resurrected. They did not recognize Jesus as they were walking with Him. Jesus eventually revealed Himself to them and gave them an Old Testament Bible study. Verse 27 says:

“Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.”

The entire Bible is about Jesus. Every book, story, and event is a picture of Jesus and what He was going to do. Take the story of Abraham offering up his son Isaac in Genesis 22. Abraham did exactly what God instructed Him to do. Abraham told Isaac that “God will provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering. “ The Angel of the Lord stopped Abraham just before he was going to kill his son. Hebrews 11:19 says:

“He (Abraham) considered that God is able to raise people even from the dead, from which he also received him (Isaac) back as a type.”

On two occasions the Israelites had to receive water from a rock. Moses was instructed to strike the rock the first time. He did and water came out. The second time they needed water Moses was supposed to talk to the rock. Moses was upset with the Israelites and struck the rock again. This was in direct opposition to what God had told to do. Again, this was a picture of Jesus. Jesus was stuck once, not twice. 1 Corinthians 10:4 tells us that the Rock was Christ.

Another example of Moses comes in the book of Numbers, chapter 21. God sent poisonous serpents among the Israelites. They complained to Moses about these poisonous snakes. God instructed Moses to raise up a bronze serpent on a standard. When the Israelites would look upon the bronze serpent after having been bitten, they would be healed. I’m sure you are familiar with John 3:16, arguably the most famous verse in the Bible. But two verses prior to that show how God used events in the Old Testament to teach about the saving work of Christ.

14 As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15 so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.

16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

There are only a few options when deciding who Jesus is. He was either a lunatic, a liar, or He was who He said He was in the Bible. Given the previous eight reasons why I believe the Bible, along with over 300 prophecies concerning every detail of His life, Is there really any way one can conclude that He is anything other than the Son of God and our Messiah? Based on the evidence, I say not a chance.
