Barack Obama described as prophet Moses by bishop
telegraph.co.uk ^ | November 3 2008 | Toby Harnden

Posted on 11/03/2008 7:04:59 AM PST by Zechariah_8_13

Adulation of the Democratic nominee is building to a crescendo. Offering a prayer before a rally in Columbus, Ohio today, Cornal Garnett Henning, an AME bishop for parts of Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, compared him to Moses and Martin Luther King in the same breath He thanked God for having "given us a Moses and a Martin called Barack Obama" and asked the Almighty to "grant that we together this nation under God may have the will to bring about the change we need" and ensure that "those who cast their sacred vote will not be deprived this right". The McCain campaign, you might remember, mocked Obama as a Moses figure in an ad entitled "the One" in August.

And from the comments, "Roxanne" says:

This article is so true. Historically the world will see that Barrack is more significant than Jesus Christ. He is loved by every World Power and their citizens. I predict that within the first 18 months of Barrack's reign, there will be peace in the middle east and an end to World poverty. He is the savior of not only the United States but the entire World. I personally can't wait until tomorrow when he has officially captured the Presidency and released us from the hell that Bush has held us in. God Bless Barrack Obama.

If this is true, why does he need secret service protection? God would not let anything happen to him.

We are talking about the Obama who is involved with people in Kenya who are killing Christians? The same Obama that devout Catholics in New Mexico are calling the anti-christ? The UK Telegraph is pushing religion now? It was a decent paper but now it is PC garbage that pushes the PC secularism.

Don’t people realize how dangerous it is to compare this man to Moses .. or tell him he is the Messiah? It’s extremely dangerous .. Obama is going to start believing it. Power corrupts.

Moses, Dr. King, Superman? The most Obama has done is make some good speeches, so I guess he is equal to King. But Moses? Standing up to an entire political structure and escaping with tens of thousands of slaves while keeping his head on his shoulders? In Obama’s dreams. Give me that old time religion, but equating Obama with Moses makes me await his idea of the tablets from on high. But first he has to check the poll numbers.

My son and his teen friends all think he is the anti-christ, wanting to make peace with the world, etc.

But these kids would vote for him if they could vote.

Wowsers, what a kool-aid junkie. Has she never heard of the Beatles?? They made a similar claim once.

In a way, I kind of hope that the Obamessiah DOES get elected just so all of these nitwits (and I'm being EXTREMELY kind, here) can be betrayed by him at the same time. They have no clue who he is or what he stands for, but they all believe that he walks on water!! Unbelievable!!

In an interesting aside, a reporter from the LATimes who has been following the Obamessiah around for months says he STILL doesn't know who Obama is!! That speaks volumes to me.

This article is so true. Historically the world will see that Barrack is more significant than Jesus Christ. He is loved by every World Power and their citizens. I predict that within the first 18 months of Barrack's reign, there will be peace in the middle east and an end to World poverty. He is the savior of not only the United States but the entire World. I personally can't wait until tomorrow when he has officially captured the Presidency and released us from the hell that Bush has held us in. God Bless Barrack Obama.

This woman demeans God's Son, "Barrack is more significant than Jesus Christ", then seeks God's blessings on Obama "God Bless Barrack Obama". She has no clue about Christianity whatsoever. None. She's also clueless about the country in which she lives and how a sitting president can affect the world order. Mindlessly stupid, IMO. Not only that, but lost to salvation as well...

Barack Obama described as prophet Moses by bishop

Pharaoh, maybe. Certainly not Moses.

3For Pharaoh will say of the people of Israel, 'They are wandering in the land; the wilderness has shut them in.' 4And(C) I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them, and I will(D) get glory over Pharaoh and all his host,(E) and the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD." And they did so.

 5When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, the(F) mind of Pharaoh and his servants was changed toward the people, and they said, "What is this we have done, that we have let Israel go from serving us?" 6So he made ready his chariot and took his army with him, 7and took(G) six hundred chosen chariots and all the other chariots of Egypt with officers over all of them. 8And(H) the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued the people of Israel while(I) the people of Israel were going out defiantly. 9The(J) Egyptians pursued them, all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and his horsemen and his army, and overtook them(K) encamped at the sea, by Pi-hahiroth, in front of Baal-zephon.

And you know what happened to Pharaoh.

Cordially,

From their website...not a mainstream church....Afro-centric Theology

About Us - Our Beliefs

The Motto "God Our Father, Christ Our Redeemer, Man Our Brother" is a great summary of what the African Methodist Episcopal Church believes.

Also known as the A.M.E. Church for short, the denomination is Methodist in terms of its basic doctrine and order of worship. It was born, through adversity, of the Methodist church and to this day does not differ in any major way from what all Methodists believe. The split from the main branch of the Methodist Church was not a result of doctrinal differences but rather the result of a time period that was marked by man's intolerance of his fellow man, based on the color of his skin. It was a time of slavery, oppression and the dehumanization of people of African descent and many of these un-Christian practices were brought into the church, forcing Richard Allen and a group of fellow worshippers of color to form a splinter denomination of the Methodist Church. To find the basic foundations of the beliefs of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, you need look no further than The Apostles' Creed and The Twenty Five Articles of Religion:

Wowsers, what a kool-aid junkie. Has she never heard of the Beatles?? They made a similar claim once.

Well, actually...

It was John alone who made the comment, not The Beatles. And while John most certainly turned into a liberal kook and certainly did nothing to promote the kingdom of Christ, it was taken out of context. He was asked in an interview about the role of religion in society and what he thought it would be going forward. My interpretation of his response could be, "Looks like the church needs to do more if the Beatles are more popular than Christ," which was a reference to the fact that so many tens of millions of people stayed home from church on a Sunday night to watch The Beatles on Ed Sullivan.

So while John did and said plenty of shameful things, I do believe that one comment received somewhat unfair attention. And I agree that the church should have been doing more to attract the attention of the 60s youth.

With all that said, Christ was never about being popular. In the end, however, EVERY knee shall bow, and EVERY tongue shall confess, that He is Lord.

I must be on another planet or a different reality than the Kool Aid drinkers. I admit that I am a PUMA and didn’t like Bush but Obama is just rubbing me the wrong way and I truly do get offended when people start comparing politicans to religious figures since in history that leads to people being burned. I remember MLK as a child. I am only a couple months younger than the ONE. I don’t remember being repulsed like this. So, I guess that makes me a racist, right? If you talk to my professional acquaintances (former friends) they are doing a Murtha on me and labeling me something like that since I am from the Applachian region. I maybe left to most of you guys but I am not a freaking socialist and I know what is right and wrong and socialism is not the answer and I am well read and educated and this guy is nothing short of a socialist. And if it were anyone else, the MSM would be all over them and his sh*t would in fact stink! I don’t get it. I don’t think I want whatever the rest of the country who supports him is drinking or smoking and I prefer to stay in a different place than these guys. This guy is no MLK and he is as arrogant as they come. That’s the most freaky thing about it is that people view him as some religious figure and he acts like he believes it which to me is a dangerous thing. And this time, if this guy gets in, I pray that we have strong enough Senators and House people to fillbuster no matter what and won’t wilt like they did in the “bailout”. I strongly believe in a two party state, not a one party state like most dicatatorships have. And I don’t trust Pelosi and Reid. They showed their true face in the bailout how they do not care about what the majority of the country wanted. And I think we have reached the time of protests again to make the MSM report things.

Jeremiah 17:5-8

Thus says the LORD:

"Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD. For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited.

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is in the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit."

Next, welcome to FR. I hope you’ve been treated with respect and suspect that is the case. I think you’ll find that most here would love the opportunity to have a serious and civil discussion about a number of issues on which we differ. And it goes without saying that we’re fervently on the same page with regard to The One.
