The First Lady's Curious Theology
American Thinker ^ | April 19, 2012 | Rev. Michael Bresciani

Posted on 04/19/2012 11:20:27 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

In America we elect presidents, we don't worship them. But the Weekly Standard blog offered a headline on April 17, 2012 that seemed to contradict this traditional practice.

In a short piece by Daniel Halper the headline was "Michelle Obama: 'This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light' If it were not a direct quote taken from Michelle Obama's rally speech at a campaign event in Nashville, Tennessee earlier the same day, we could only imagine that some virulent anti-Obama politico went too far and just made up a false and despiteful headline to hurt the Obama campaign. But the headline is quite true.

Here is what is apparent. The Weekly Standard is no religious website and Daniel Harper is no dialectical theological giant like Karl Barth or a great expositor of the scriptures like Charles Haddon Spurgeon, but it is also apparent that he wasn't trying to be.

No one needs to be a theological giant to see that Michelle has overstepped the bounds of both common political discourse and sound theology. Jesus Christ alone is the light of the world (Mt 4: 16) and the power to dispel darkness is his alone to wield.

The theology of the Bible makes two things very clear. One is that angels are superior in every way to man, the other is that no angel in Old or New Testament ever allowed themselves to be worshipped. Most of them claimed to be messengers or servants of the Lord and abruptly halted any attempt to worship them. No Christian who has seen these examples would suspend the lessons taught by these examples and then worship a man, even if he is a sitting U.S. President....

Another example of 'cult of personality' that is so popular in socialist, marxist and facist dictatorships.

A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise. wikipedia.org

All to push the poser as “liberal messiah” to the simple-minded.

It it not for nothing that I jokingly refer to him as the Messiah.

This man/infant posing as a god would be quite laughable if not for the high position in America he has and the destruction he has caused.

That's cruel... to actual Sasquatches. Moochelle is not a Sasquatch... she's a Wookie. Get your s__t together, man. Last thing we need to do is to piss off the Bigfoots during an election year.

LOL!!

Politically scriptural Bombast (in contrast to real teaching), usually delivered from a pulpit for the purposes of injecting energy into an ignorant crowd.

Practiced by Jeremiah Wright and echoed by....

I hear you! If we had an actual Mama Sasquatch as 1st Lady, she wouldn’t be blowing ten million dollars on continual vacations to far-flung, super-expensive digs; wearing weird, ugly, designer clothes and would NOT need any SS protection! She likely would also give bam a 50 yard toss every time he bowed down to some two-bit dictator or started eyeballing the male staff members! Just one lie and she would break his jaw...
Yep, I could live with that!
