James Dobson responds to Barrack Obama
Focus On The Family ^ | June 24, 2008 | n/a

Posted on 06/24/2008 6:12:54 PM PDT by fkabuckeyesrule

Dr. James Dobson responds to a speech made by Barack Obama in which the presidential candidate, while discussing the role of religion in government, compares Dr. Dobson to political activist the Rev. Al Sharpton. Dr. Dobson also updates listeners on the battle to preserve traditional marriage in Arizona, and pays tribute to late broadcast journalist Tim Russert. Joining Dr. Dobson for a discussion of these important issues are Focus on the Family President Jim Daly and Tom Minnery, Focus' Vice President of Public Policy. "76 percent of the [American] people identify themselves as Christian ... [but Barack Obama is] diminishing the idea that people of Christian faith have anything to say." - Tom Minnery

Obama really is a Doofus isnt he?
What could he hope to gain by speaking biblically?

His base arent fundamentalists, so he will irritate them, and he doesnt know what he is talking about so he will piss off fundamentalists.

I heard him saying the bible says slavery is OK in leviticus.

When it comes to the Bible, I don’t think Obama wants to take on Dobson, unless he wants to get his empty suit handed to him, so to speak. Unlike Obama’s former pastor, Dobson actually knows and teaches the Bible, not some off the wall social gospel. IMHO

Obama is someone’s puppet, and as time goes on, we’ll find out who’s pulling the strings.

SPOT ON.

Any 2nd-year student in a Bible-believing college would eat Obama’s lunch. I am disappointed more Bible believers are not calling him on his total lack of Bible knowledge, specifically in the area of dispensations.

His former pastor taught him zilch.

“The essence of dispensationalism, then, is the distinction between Israel and the church. This grows out of the dispensationalist’s consistent employment of normal or plain or historical-grammatical interpretation, and it reflects an understanding of the basic purpose of God in all His dealings with mankind as that of glorifying Himself through salvation and other purposes as well.” — pg 48, “Dispensationalism”; Dr Charles Ryrie, Moody 1995

In other words, don’t take a verse out of context or otherwise nullifying the importance to whom God was speaking to, and what was required of that audience as determined by the amount of revelation God had given them, up to that time.

Your Tag line would be very much appreciated by the late George Carlin.

True, he is proving himself to be a lightweight and should stick to topics other than religion. He has almost no chance in November.

Listening now.

Hey Obama! This Jew here would much rather have a real Christian lead this nation than you secular alternative. Kapeesh?

****************

“Slavery” in Leviticus is much more like what we call indentured servitude.

I don’t buy into psychobabble either, however, Dobson has managed to use Bible principals as starting and finishing points when he “psychobabbles”. He has never forced modern psychology into his religion but use his background in both psychology and the Bible to reinforce biblical principals to help folks.

If memory serves me right … the Bible doesn’t condemn or condone slavery, but rather, tells us that we should be happy and content in our circumstances.

A great movie wasn't it? I was a SAC pilot (B-52)1963-1967 so you can understand my appreciation for Col. Bat and the movie. Now, I would not have jumped on the Bomb, ala Maj. Kong (not that gung ho). Buck Turgidson was another great character wasn't he?

****I sure wish they had got behind Duncan Hunter.****

He was my first choice although I have to say I was disappointed when he endorsed Huckabee given Huckabee's point of view on the illegal immigration issue.

I disagree. Obama attacked Dobson therefore a response from Dobson is appropriate.

Sure, Obama pleases his leftist base with fights with Dobson. But they’re going to vote for him enthusiastically anyway while social conservatives are lukewarm about McCain (at best). If Obama keeps this up, he might just get a big turnout of social conservatives voting for McCain to stop him.

I went to the Focus on the Family link and listened to the audio. For those who know Biblical eschatology, the gist of Obama’s speech we should recognize as what we see described in Daniel and other places about the antichrist.

His statements about the Old Testament and the sermon on the mount, indicates he is the one that has been listening to “screeds instead of sermons.”

Had he been in a church that actually preaches the Bible instead of listening for 20 years to Wright’s leftist rants, he would not be making these theologically convoluted statements.

Nothing is more basic in Christianity than the relation of the Old Testament to the New Testament. The events in Acts and the teachings of the epistles all swirl around it. If Obama had a real Bible pastor he would know these things - instead, all he knows is Marxist “screeds.”

“Screeds instead of sermons” indeed.

Slavery was taken for granted. It was a fact of the ancient world. Jews were told to treat their slaves well since they themselves were ill-treated as slaves in Egypt.

Yes, but Obama was making it sound like the bible says its OK.

Obama is a complete goober. Just because he buys into “The Notion” that you can twist the bibles meaning to reflect what you want ala Rev Wright doesnt make it so.
