Skip to comments.Obama: I Pushed Dodd-Frank And Health Care Reform Because Of Christ
Posted on 02/02/2012 8:11:06 AM PST by LucianOfSamasota
President Barack Obama has been taking lumps from Republicans for years over his support for Wall Street and health care reform, but today at the National Prayer Breakfast he claimed support from on high to defend two of his most controversial legislative achievements.
"And so when I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on Main Street, when I talk about making sure insurance companies arent discriminating against those who are already sick, or making sure that unscrupulous lenders arent taking advantage of the most vulnerable among us, I do so because I genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody. But I also do it because I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years, and I believe in Gods command to 'love thy neighbor as thyself.'"
"I know the version of that Golden Rule is found in every major religion and every set of beliefs from Hinduism to Islam to Judaism to the writings of Plato," Obama added.
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.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
Yes, and they`re all in error.
The biggest one being in the book of Acts where they mistakenly believed God would return in their lifetime so they sold most of their possessions and lived communally .
My question to the little messiah and deceivers is, why is 15 Trillion and unfunded mandates of 250 Trillion not enough for your god?
Also see II Timothy 3: 1-7
Blasphemy and he is really pushing it. He may get something from God that he is not counting on and it will be unpleasant.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of those who by their wickedness suppress the truth.
He did it because he hates Christ and wants to taunt God.
Full agreement there.
II Timothy 3:1-7
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
this is great!! he will soon lose the following of the atheist wing of the RAT party and the middle American will see more pandering and wonder, “why did I vote for this guy?”
Liberation theology confuses Christianity with Marxism. I can’t recall any time when Jesus instructed his followers to have government plunder more from everyone to play politics, and call it charity. Jesus did instruct the rich man to give all his wealth away, and follow him. Notice Jesus didn’t tell the rich man to give all his goods to the government to distribute for him. Notice also that Jesus never claimed the rich man’s wealth wasn’t the rich man’s property to do with as he pleased. Obama should give all he has to the poor, and follow Jesus Christ, starting with abdicating his throne.
Jesus wants those who are already sick to have insurance? I thought He’d just heal you and be on His way. Seriously, where in the Gospels does it say anything about insurance?
Sadly, there are millions of “christians” who will read this and say “obama IS a Christian! I must vote for Him!”
The lesson here is that you don’t ever let a marxist try to interpret Scripture for you. It is just twisted to justify marxism.
So he lets babies born alive after botched abortions be thrown into dirty linen hampers because of Christ?
Coming from a guy who supported infanticide in the Illinois State Senate...
The Pope (then Cardinal Ratzinger) agrees with you:
That is why that ‘national prayer breakfast’ is a farce.
Yes, we ARE to LOVE our neighbor (as ourselves) NOT, as Obama preaches, to envy our neighbor.
Yes, we are to LOVE our neighbor (as oursleves) NOT, as Obama preaches, to covet our neighbors possessions, wealth or income.
Yes, we are to LOVE our neighbor (as ourselves) we are not called by Jesus, as Obama precahes, to ask for Ceasar’s sword (secular power) to go TAKE from our neighbor.
In the church Obama went to, he did not hear Christian preaching; he heard the subversion of Christian sentiments through the prism of Marxist Liberation theologies.
The article's headline started out quoting Obama. A "barf alert" would have been superfluous.
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.
“By their fruits ye shall know them”. Yet you are correct, we should pray for him, and all of our leaders because “with God all things are possible.”
