Obama: I Pushed Dodd-Frank And Health Care Reform Because Of Christ
BuzzFeed ^ | Feb 2, 2012 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 02/02/2012 2:36:30 PM PST by bkopto

At National Prayer Breakfast, Obama grounds his controversial policies in the Bible. Tax hikes for rich “[coincide] with Jesus's teaching.” .... The president said he often falls to his knees in prayer, and emphasized the role of his religious values in determining where to lead the country.

"I’d be remiss if I stopped there; if my values were limited to personal moments of prayer or private conversations with pastors or friends. So instead, I must try — imperfectly, but I must try — to make sure those values motivate me as one leader of this great nation."

Obama maintained that his call for the wealthiest to give up their tax breaks, he's doing so out of economic necessity, but also in line with biblical teachings.

"And I think to myself, if I’m willing to give something up as somebody who’s been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think that’s going to make economic sense. But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that 'for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,'" Obama said, noting Jewish and Islamic teachings say much the same thing.

Just did a run through on the whole Bible, and nowhere in there does it say that to do good you must hold a gun to their head and make them hand over all their money.

I'm afraid Obama has now revealed himself as one of those people who imagines he is a satisfactory substitute for God.

Religious pandering by Hussein. He must be reading the Mormon threads on FR, hoping to pick up some evangelical Christian votes from the uninformed....

And the Koran teaches the good Muslim that it is permissible to lie to the infidel.

This is called “Taqqiyah”.

I don’t believe a single thing out of the mouth of the illegitimate bisexual Marxist Kenyan Muslim Usurper.

And neither should anyone.

I don't doubt that he's a Christian. But a lot of Christians are confused, especially those that have come from such a Leftists/Legal education background as Obama. We should really pray for him because,

"The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turns it whichever way He chooses." Proverbs 21:1.

I am so sorry I read this just after I finished my dinner. You need a "Barf" alert on this piece of disgusting fantasy and misuse of the Bible and Christ's teachings.

I seriously doubt that Obama has EVER read the Bible. Years ago there was a video of him being interviewed and asked questions about his "Christian" beliefs. From his answers it was quite obvious that he knew very little about Jesus, or His teachings. He seemed stumped with his replies. I wish I could find the video, some woman was asking the questions. Will have to look for it again. Maybe someone else will recall it before I find it.

Don’t most Muslims “fall” to their knees in prayer several times a day? It’s obvious his religious values are guiding where he “leads” the country.

The Devil in the White House also quotes Scripture as his father, Satan, quotes to Christ:

``Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6: And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone``

Does this mean Obama is more Christian than George Washington, and all the Founding Fathers who created the federal government and did not push mandates like this and require federal taxpayer dollars to fund 99 weeks of unemployment and all the social programs we apparently can only ever make more of and never decrease spending on?

Marxist pus-bag. Don’t take any biblical advice from marxists.

Someone ought to remind Obama that when the Good Samaritan came across the injured traveler on the side of the road, he didn't call 911 and have a government-paid chariot come to take him to the Caesar Augustus Trauma Unit at the local Beth Israel Medical Center. He picked him up, put him on his own donkey, took him to a nearby inn, and paid the innkeeper out of his own pocket.

What Jesus really said;

Luk 19:24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give [it] to him that hath ten pounds.(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

Imagine if a Conservative President said, “In keeping with my religious convictions I believe that life begins at conception and that it is essential to stop the killing of unborn babies.” The cry from Liberals would be, “How dare you impose your religious beliefs on us.”

The dude aint a Christian.

His “Christian faith” is from a “reverend” who was a compatriot of Louis Farrakhan and one Mr James H Cone, founder of Black Liberation theology.
Obama spent over 20 years of sundays listening to this propagator spewing crap unrelated to Christianity and America.

He just recently threw his reverend under the bus, just to get distance.
