Feeling Sorry For the President
Townhall ^ | May 13, 2012 | Michael Youssef

Posted on 05/13/2012 8:14:20 PM PDT by fkabuckeyesrule

I feel sorry for Mr. Obama. Regular readers of my blog may be surprised to see those words, but I really do have feelings of genuine sympathy for him. Any human who carries a semblance of spiritual understanding will share in that feeling of sorrow.

Try to imagine him standing on two small boats in the middle of the ocean—he has one foot squarely in the middle of the floor of one boat, and the other foot is similarly fixed to the second boat. If an observer were to make only a passing glance at such a scene, one might think that both boats are headed in the same direction and everything is under control. But the reality is different. The reality reveals that the boats are headed in opposite paths.

Can you imagine the pain? Can you imagine the calamity that’s about to occur?

If that isn’t worth some genuine sorrow, I don’t know what is.

This past week, Mr. Obama claimed that he had reached the end of an “evolution” by coming out in support of homosexual marriage. That is one of the President’s boats.

However, his policies have been unmistakably pro-Islamist—not just pro-Muslim, but pro-fundamentalist, political Islam. He has Islamists as advisors in the White House and in the State Department. He constantly seeks to protect and defend Islamist ideology. And he frantically tries to distinguish between Islamists and terrorism, when in reality, the first produces the second. Painfully, this is the second boat that his other foot is firmly planted on.

I say painfully because those two ideologies—pro-homosexuality and pro-Islamist—are diametrically opposed to each other. They are two boats headed, full-throttle, in opposite directions.

The Islamist ideology calls for the killing of homosexuals. They are to be stoned to death. In a perfect Islamist world, homosexuals would be the first to be thrown into the fiery furnace.

That is an ideology that a true believer in Jesus Christ would vehemently condemn. As much as the Bible opposes the practice of homosexuality, a Christian’s ardent desire is for everyone to understand the fullness of Jesus’ sacrifice—that He died on the cross so we would have victory over any form of moral enslavement.

Mr. Obama claims to be a Christian of sorts. But his verbal claim notwithstanding, he is not a true Christian who believes in and obeys the authority of God’s Word. That places him in an unenviable predicament—one that only a clever, dancing politician would try to maneuver his way out of. But even the most gifted politician would fail to keep such a diverging-boat dance going for long. What is divided cannot stand.

One longs for Mr. Obama to truly embrace the Lord Jesus Christ—for it was Christ who unequivocally claimed He was the only way to heaven, while openly commanding his followers to love all sinners and invite them to repentance.

That is a position that will keep you secure in the boat of life.

I don’t think any sincere Christian would not wish for Barack’s soul’s salvation. But Barack isn’t a mere victim of circumstance. He yielded more or less willingly to a lot of junk.

Perhaps both boats moving in opposing directions will cause Obama to fall into the water, and drown.

You’re a better Christian than I am...but, I will struggle to attain your level.

I despise the HOMOPOTUS because he has little compassion for the families he has INTENTIONALLY put out of their homes and jobs.

Sometimes I believe in an eye for an eye—let’s put him out of his “job” and put his family out on the street.

They’ll survive luxuriously; until the Judgement, that is.

Sorry but I don't share your sentiment. For onlookers to feel "genuine sorrow" there must be some unforseen tragedy. All of obammy's have been calculated risks. If he had one foot planted in one boat and another foot in another boat, maybe he shouldn't have betted on both boats making it to shore at the exact same time. He is a pox on everything near and dear to us. I feel nothing but genuine contempt.

These aren't two boats he's on, it's one:

Obama commands a big battleship aimed purely at the destruction of everything that has ever made America a good and strong country.

That's his one boat, and unfortunately Obama is a motivated and competent captain.

Was O a Christian before or after his conversation with Stephy Stephanopoulos?

"What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." --in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, who jumped in to correct Obama by saying "your Christian faith," which Obama quickly clarified.

Israel went through the same thing. Turn your back on God as a nation and you will suffer.

Christians avoid the holiness of God and God’s judgment. We have gotten away from speaking about the judgment of God

We will all suffer living in this nation because our leaders have turned from God’s word.

****he has one foot squarely in the middle of the floor of one boat, and the other foot is similarly fixed to the second boat.****

This is what happens when one is double minded and unstable in his ways void of a real core. Quite a contrast to the previous president despite his shortcomings.

I respectfully disagree with those who state that Obama is an idiot, a moron or imbecile. While I do get the intent, it gives him something of a pass since his flaws can be ascribed to mental retardation.

I think Obama is probably somewhere near the median in terms of raw intelligence. He's not inherently stupid by some birth defect. Instead, he's savvy (or at least shrewd) enough to deliberately and maliciously engage in a strategic campaign to utterly desconstruct America as we know it. Evil acts due to clinical idiocy can be understood. But evil when willfully performed by someone who knows what they're doing is unforgivable.

I’ve not read your blog but every time I talk to God I walk away with the understanding that there is a price to pay for having a dark soul . Obvious .

Well I’ll pay the price on earth and in Heaven and in the mean time I have no remorse in my position’s nor shall I have empathy for him .

He is in fact a cancer upon humanity and he can answer for his own . Thankfully there are people with a bigger heart than I have on the subject .

Let me allow u to imagine too...with another boat analogy....

1st thing u have to understand is...

A liberal bases his morals/principles on his politics.....
A Conservative bases his politics on his morals/principles...

If u fathom that..then u realize where a ship without a rudder will eventually end up.......its not a question of “if"......it's a question of “when”....... Happy Trails!

As much as I dislike the man and his political agenda, I can't help but think back to the last Democrat in the Office. The fact that, the "bent one" William Jefferson Xlinto, was elected, impeached, and re-elected, and then followed 8 years later by Barack Hussein Obama, after 911 especially, says more about us as a people than it says more about us than it does about either one of them.

We, the citizenry, don't live in a vacuum and "we", present company excluded, put these people in office. The sickening thought that I enjoy these days is that we once again have the task of choosing between the lesser of two evils, which still renders an evil result.

We, the Republic, crossed the Rubicon quite a long time ago when the plebiscite decided to pay allegiance to political party's.

Excellent article! Thanks for posting it. I had not thought of how his “new” position on homosexuality is diametrically opposed to his Muslim upbringing. Although they are accused of being hateful, homophobic, and discriminatory because they do not approve of the homosexual lifestyle, Christians are the ones who actually love and want whats best for them.

Obama would need a soul to embrace Christ. He’s a sociopath, among suffering from many other psychological illnesses. He has no feelings for anyone other than himself, and perhaps his immediate family.

He has no soul, which explains a lot. Marxists have no souls. Which explains Obama.

Power is the god Obama worships. Lies and delusions are his weapons, aided and abetted by a mainstream media who worships the false idol that is Obama.

Only the American people can stop this souless marxist from his relentless march to absolute power. That day of reckening is Nov. 6th. After that all bets are off for America.

For the record. Bill Clinton was impeached in his second term.

I don't blame the American people so much as I blame the media. They are the enemy of the republic and are actively seeking its destruction. Through very skillful propaganda techniques the MSM is able to convince a majority that up is down, left is right. etc.

Heck, the drive-bys were able to sell the idea that GW Bush was alone responsible for the carnage of hurricane Katrina. When he did everything in his power to minimize it. The locals completely fell apart and GW got the blame. Nagin even got reelected! This was a highly successful media spin campaign and it was all due to very clever manipulation.

I can see the news medias power just by talking to acquaintances and co-workers about the issues of the day. For example, they know nothing about Fast and Furious and are not really sure what Obamacare really entails. On a whole host of topics they are completely in the dark and these are not stupid people. They work hard and get their news in the car or the home page on the computer.

Barack Obama of 2008 was a creation of the American media and they alone put him in office. They have been propping him up and will stop at nothing to get him a second term. I just hope we can counter it this time.

Obama is a POST TURTLE...he’s put in a place that is above both his means of achievement and his (paid for by outside sources) training. He cannot tell his own “story” without a teleprompter at hand. There is a puppet master at work who has groomed this dupe (communist mole) from day 1...His wife, kids, background are are created for the narrative. Bank on it!

As a Christian, I am all for his soul`s salvation.

However, I want his political persona brought down in glowing flames. He wanted this gig as early as 2004, when the dems started crowing about him as everything from a rapidly rising rock star to God Himself.

He needs to be brought asunder and his political career destroyed forever.

Great points but.. I never feel sorry for tyrants like Stalin, Mao, Castro who by choice decide their views go against every American as well as Biblical agendas via history, our heritage and values. Bama chose to follow Wright , Marx and Alinsky. No sorrow, but frankly he and his ilk must be defeated.
