Posted on 08/23/2009 6:13:05 AM PDT by libertarian27
Uh oh, Jim is talking about God again. Oh well. This week the young President turned to religious leaders to help push his health care plan (whichever one that is) to their respective flocks. Once again, we the critics are the sinners, and he, judge and jury.
Lets set aside his stance on abortion and partial birth abortion (and his denial that his plan wont fund abortions). He chose to invoke not just religion in his push for a political plan but then chose to invoke the 9th Commandment, admonishing his critics as Bearing false witness.
For a Christian, this is a serious offense and not to be taken lightly. Bearing false witness is more than lying. It is purposely twisting and falsifying the truth for personal gain among other things. It is a conscious act and a serious sin. Thus the charge carries much weight.
But there is little evidence that this is what his critics are doing. Quite the contrary. Critics, of his healthcare plan, including myself, have carefully read the bill (HR 3200) and our objections are based on careful analysis. Hardly bearing false witness. Thus the charge itself, if not true, and I believe its not, is ironically bearing false witness itself, although it is not for me to make such a charge and ultimately the Lord will be judge.
But I do find it disturbing that the young President, in front of religious leaders, was able to discover and recite the 9th Commandment while seemingly forgetting the 10th. He alone has led the charge against the rich, inciting a level of class warfare that I have not seen in my lifetime, A battle against those he determines to be the haves, punish them for their success and redistribute in the name of social justice.
It is this attitude that has spilled over and into the open among so many in America. I have received calls from people who tell me they cant afford insurance, or get a bank loan, or a charge card because CEOs make too much money. The President with his demonization of CEOs and corporations doesnt just contribute to this anger he stokes it.
Perhaps its understandable then that the President would stop at number 9 and take a pass on 10.
Mother Theresa, whom I love dearly, once was asked what does a poor person have to be thankful for. She reponded by saying everything we have is a gift from God. Therefore she said if the Lord gives you two arms, praise Him for the two. If He gives you one, praise Him for the one. From those who are given everything, much will be expected, but ultimately the Lord and the Lord alone will hold each one of us accoutntable. Can I hear an Amen.
God Bless you all and have a nice weekend.
PS: Here are all 10. I can assure you I have broken my share of these. Will likely do so again. Therefore
this is just for handy reference for us all.
The entire “speech and debate” clause of the Congress pretty much flies in the face of God’s laws. They have grown used to lying as a matter of course.
(Does ‘O’ get a passing grade on any of them?)
You shall have no other gods before me
You shall not make for yourself an idol
You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God
Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy
Honor your father and mother
You shall not murder
You shall not commit adultery
You shall not steal
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife
You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor
A double minded man is unstable in all of his ways.
[[Thus the charge itself, if not true, and I believe its not, is ironically bearing false witness itself, although it is not for me to make such a charge and ultimately the Lord will be judge.]]
Actually, YES it IS for us to make that charge IF it is true- simply keeping sdilent and ‘waiting on the Lord’ is NOT biblical- We ARE called to take action when we see evil in action- not to sit by and ‘wait for God’ to take action
[[It’s incredible how the left will try and “cherry pick” Bible verses whenever they think it’ll benefit their argument du jour.]]
That’s what apostates do- they ABUSE God’s word- pervert it, and twist it to suit their Satanic ideology- The Evil One comes as the angel of light, but He is NO such hting!
He is evil and trying to change our system from one that relies on the entrepreneurial abilities of individuals to one that government mandates and controls everything.
It has never worked and Obama could destroy the greatest of our country.
I’m surprised the chameleon didn’t break out in a few “-eths” and “-ests” while preaching to the choir.
The man is a complete fraud.
What's a little blasphemy to a BABY KILLER?
I mean, really, didn’t that performance remind you of Hillary going all hip-hop in front of black groups during the campaign?
Yes, Vicevich has read the bill. He’s a stronger person than I, I read the cliff notes- which is more than my Representatives.
Good for you for posting it, I was going to do it, but you beat me to it. At least this keeps you connected to both the blog and chatroom.:)
Plus do not forget his sister, a lawyer by profession who spent a lot of her time up at the Cape this summer reading the bill. Seen the Hannity special on Friday night and he talked to this woman who read the bill, both the House and the Senate’s version and they were so thick, you can make door stops out of the both of them.
Just think of how many trees are needlessly killed so people can print out and read this bill.
It’s a Tree Killer!!!
So much for being Green! :)
Sorta like charging pediatricians with scheduling unwarranted tonsillectomies on children solely for the money or claiming GP's are chopping off the feet of their diabetic patients for an immediate $30,000, in order to garner support for passage of a bill through Congress.
