Well, he’s done it again. Just when you thought there was no more pushing to be done, he finds another way. The POTUS took the opportunity of the “National Prayer Breakfast “to admonish that Christians have done hideous things, “And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place – remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” the president said.” At the National Day of Prayer breakfast of all things, not prayer just more politics. Lest we forget Mr. President, these weren’t Christians and the Inquisitions were against Christians, this was a vast political force stretching millennium and even exists as a “country” today. That same political force that you have embraced, now, as a partner in your crimes. Whew, got that off my chest.
The problem is that he’s been on a, guilt trip for America, apologetic tour for the last 6 years. Blaming America for and apologizing for everything under the sun and then some. America is sorry for leading the way toward destroying this planet and causing global warming. America is sorry for stealing Africans for slavery. America is sorry for inventing slavery. America is sorry for stealing me away from you, Kenya, my homeland. America is sorry for writing a constitution that denies rights, freedom and protection for everyone. Heaping guilt upon guilt for actions that we are not responsible for, or generations removed from. And it hasn’t stopped. Soon, he’ll be standing before the UN general assembly apologizing for our long standing awful acts, of standing by and supporting that terrorist and occupying force called Israel, then using the moment to announce United States rejection of Israel, securing the total judgment on this land.
My, oh my how he has also made us subservient. Bowing to kings, princes and despots as representative of us all. Even trying to force the Olympic team to bow MY flag to the British queen (how fitting when God signaled America’s downfall with the flag falling off during the national anthem). Starting with the British in 1908, the US doesn’t bow it’s flag to anyone on earth. Outside of King Gustav in 1912 it has stood, with an exclamation point, since Hitler in the 1936 games. Obama will be quick to apologize, but then he’s not my flag.
Now, at the National Day of Prayer he heaped more guilt on us. Chiding those present that Christians were responsible for as much, if not more, violence, persecutions, and killings in the name of religion than the terr…, radic…, god loving freedom fighters. No Mr. President, they were trying to free the Holy Land from the usurpers that were killing (non-believers), persecuting and torturing, like you should be fighting against. (note: but then, again, land acquisition and reclamation had nothing to do with it a millennium ago, eh,the Caesar pope?)
Heaping guilt upon guilt upon guilt on the backs of Americans, and now specifically Christians made me think about this. President Obama said: “We are summoned to push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilistic ends.”. Err, what religion is that Mr. President?
So for all this heaping on of guilt, bowing and subservience, where are the real apologies? Mr. President, where is the apology for putting Americans back into slavery of government handouts? Where is the apology for taking moms out of homes and putting them into the slave work instead of minding the homes? Where is the apology for taking our children away from solid upbringing to government casualties? Where is the apology for the millions of children murdered each year on the alter of selfishness? Where is the apology for the erosion of Americans constitutional rights by judicial legislation? Where Mr. President are you taking this country unapologetically? Crickets, crickets, crickets….
I’m not surprised. This is nothing new in the spiritual realm, it has been going on since the beginning. The Devil has been going before the throne pointing fingers, heaping guilt, even tried it on Jesus. He is the great accusing liar and he heaps and heaps on us hoping to bury us in guilt. Some succumb, but for some of us it’s to no avail. Jesus came to earth, bore our sin and iniquities, died, and rose again, defeating the powers of the Devil. We, who believe, are free from the burden of guilt and can throw it away, and stay away from it. There is no need to be crippled and burdened by it. Jesus has bought our freedom, and we are free indeed. We are sojourners in a strange land, this land is no longer our own, we have no need to be guilty. President obama can’t heap it, even the devil can’t succeed.
Are you burdened and overwhelmed? Do you find something missing? Are you being tugged in directions you don’t know? Jesus is calling you, he knows your name, He wants you on His team, in His family, in His country. Repent of your sin, ask Him, in faith, for his free gift to you and He will provide it for you, without cost, guilt free.
