Psst, Gay Bishop Gene Robinson - God Ainít Listening (Ps. 66:18)
The Christian Worldview ^ | January 15, 2009 | Jan Markell

Posted on 01/17/2009 6:20:37 AM PST by Zender500

The Obama administration and America are heading into treacherous territory. There are certain kinds of behavior that seem to anger God more than others and at this point, America is already on shaky ground. President-elect Obama has asked V. Gene Robinson, the openly gay Episcopal bishop of New Hampshire, to deliver the invocation at a pre-inaugural event this Sunday on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Bishop Robinson said he had been reading inaugural prayers through history and was “horrified” at how “specifically and aggressively Christian they were.” He states, “I am very clear that this will not be a Christian prayer, and I won’t be quoting Scripture. The texts I hold as sacred are not sacred texts for all Americans, and I want all people to feel that this is their prayer.”

Robinson said he might address the prayer to “the god of our many understandings,” language that he said he learned from the 12-Step program he attended for his alcohol addiction. I’m sure that will please God and He will pour out His blessings upon this nation. Actually not.

God-hating nations have a short shelf life. I am not suggesting that one prayer means we are a nation that hates God. But inaugural events reverberate around the world, literally. All civilized nations are watching these events one way or another. God has blessed America abundantly. He has kept us safe since 9/11. It seems to me that activities that revolve around the highest office in the land should acknowledge that. At this point we do not even know if Rick Warren will do so. I pray he does.

The root of America’s problems today are not social or even financial. They are spiritual. Too many in this great nation have told God to take a hike. Is it any wonder we are facing problems that are economic, weather-related, crime-related, immorality-related, and, well, you fill in the blank?

Romans 1:28-31 states, “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God. . .”

Robinson is not a friend of God. He is ashamed of the gospel and uncomfortable praying a “Christian” prayer though the entire world may be watching.

Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with Liberty Alliance Action and Liberty Counsel, states, “It is a shame that President-elect Obama apparently has so little regard for his Christian constituents that he would give such a high place of honor to a self-styled man of God whose only claim to fame is that he abandoned his wife and children to enter, loudly and proudly, a sexually deviant lifestyle expressly condemned by the very Bible he’s ironically calling ‘holy and sacred.’ ” Barber continues, “Gene Robinson is little more than a radical homosexual activist in a clergyman’s clothing. In fact, his heretical rebellion against God’s express natural order, coupled with his selfish refusal to surrender his pulpit, has almost single- handedly devastated the U.S. Episcopal Church.”

It is doubtful that God’s wrath was taught at Trinity United Church of Christ. Obama was not informed that there are consequences when we are in God’s face. Yes, this is a bone thrown to the gay community to heal their wounds at the selection of Pastor Rick Warren, but it is a dangerous one. God and His Word will not be mocked.

Matt Barber concludes and rightly so, “As Gene Robinson prays for Barack Obama on Sunday, I would encourage all Bible- believing Christians to pray for him. Pray for his wife and children he left for a lie. Pray that he will repent, ‘go and sin no more,’ bringing others with him to the salvation only Christ can offer – a salvation our nation and world so desperately need.”

Oh it was taught all right. Taught that it was directed against white people.

As for Vicky Gene's god of many understandings, I'm sure the mooj are just salivating till they have the chance to clear up that confusion for him.

Robinson’s only god is his Johnson.

He has fooled the Epicopal Church into making him a faux Bishop, but he hasnt fooled God. Payback is going to be hell for this fool when he takes his last breath.

These verses sums up what America will face once this turkey is inaugurated:

Romans 1:18-23

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of those who hold the truth in unrighteousness. 19For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20Ever since the creation of the world his eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things he has made. So they are without excuse; 21for though they knew God, they did not honour him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their senseless minds were darkened. 22Claiming to be wise, they became fools; 23and they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling a mortal human being or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles.

and Jeremiah 17:5-13:

5Thus says the Lord:
Cursed are those who trust in mere mortals
and make mere flesh their strength,
whose hearts turn away from the Lord.
6They shall be like a shrub in the desert,
and shall not see when relief comes.
They shall live in the parched places of the wilderness,
in an uninhabited salt land.

7Blessed are those who trust in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
8They shall be like a tree planted by water,
sending out its roots by the stream.
It shall not fear when heat comes,
and its leaves shall stay green;
in the year of drought it is not anxious,
and it does not cease to bear fruit.

9The heart is devious above all else;
it is perverse—
who can understand it?
10I the Lord test the mind
and search the heart,
to give to all according to their ways,
according to the fruit of their doings.

11Like the partridge hatching what it did not lay,
so are all who amass wealth unjustly;
in mid-life it will leave them,
and at their end they will prove to be fools.

12O glorious throne, exalted from the beginning,
shrine of our sanctuary!
13O hope of Israel! O Lord!
All who forsake you shall be put to shame;
those who turn away from you* shall be recorded in the underworld,*
for they have forsaken the fountain of living water, the Lord.

This man is an anti-Christ.

II Timothy 3:1-5 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Not “be a fruit and hump a guy.”

It is just as well that Robinson won’t pray in Jesus’ name. It is more fitting that he says some sort of pagan, Gnostic prayer. The only shame is that Robinson represents a supposedly Christian church and many people don’t know the difference. Robinson knows that someday Jesus will return to separate the wheat from the chaff - the faux Bishop can deny Jesus all he wants but that won’t change anything.

"I am very clear that this will not be a Christian prayer..."

It is appropriate that only a Christian would offer a Christian prayer, so we understand your being unwilling or unable to do so, Vickie Gene.

I can’t even say how sad this makes me. His heart is so far from the truth. The only prayer that can help America is a prayer to the YAHWEH RAPHA ( the Lord who heals).

Add “King” to that and you have the entire bloody sectarian history of England since Henry VIII.

Never letting a Pope get in the way of a good adulterous “poke” was the root of the Anglican Church.

[The aggressively anti-Bible, anti-God, pro-perversion Bishop Robinson] was “horrified” at how “specifically and aggressively Christian they were.”

I guess a normal patriotic American can say they are disgusted at how intentionally and aggressively un-Christian, anti-American and secular-humanistic Gene Robinson's mental and spiritual sickness appears to be.

While the perverted Bishop's view hates America, the conservative view is pleased by those same Christian prayers the perverted Bishop hates so much.

This aggressively perverted charlatan is a clear reflection of the Democrat party, Hollywood, the news media, television, Hugh Hefner, Bill Maher and Rosie O'Donnell. (and a few loud, anti-Bible liberals on Free Republic)

Thank you Gene Robinson for at least admitting what true Americans have been saying for years, America always was a conservative Christian nation until the far left loons began to attack our country's very foundation.

The very perverted Bishop Gene Robinson is led by the same anti-American fanaticism as all Social leftists.

They all are at war against America's historical moorings, just like the few, loud, anti-Christian fanatics on Free Republic.

This Robinson guy bothers me not so much because he's a flaming homosexual creep but because he's an Episcopal not affiliated with the Christian wing of that church.

If Obama needs a non-Christian involved in his ceremonies certainly there are better choices ~ for example, there are several Shinto shrines at Ise who could provide a priest or two.

At the same time the Dalai Lama, a well-known Buddhist figure, would be right there if asked.

In the future Obama, and other Presidents, really ought to think through this part ~ the non-Christian part ~ bringing in faux Christians is hardly uplifting.

In the 70s,I was an enlisted weatherman on an aircraft carrier,working just under the flight deck in “officer country” and I found that aviators were the only Navy officers worth a damn.

Interesting observation. We know that Jimmy Carter was a Naval officer (of sorts) and he certainly was NOT an aviator.
We can also see that he is not a very logical, nor pragmatic thinker either. ;-/

(Actually, lately, I’ve been wondering if he has a brain tumor or some other medical condition affecting his thought processes.)

By the way, my husband served on The Bon Homme Richard (briefly as a midshipman) and then on the USS Constellation (as a pilot).

It stands to reason.

Navy aviators were advanced by merit and not by butt-kissing.

No room for under-achievers with a talent for brown-nosing in fields of combat—even in the Navy.

Regular Navy officers,in my day,were more politicians than warriors.Thank God the real important command positions,again in my day,were filled by former aviators.

Submariners like to brag that they are the Navy elite—Carter scuttled that premise big time.
McCain and GHW Bush were Navy aviators but they lost their way—plus they were both shot down.
Perhaps that had an effect.

I doubt that getting shot down was responsible for that. We had a super good friend who got shot down and was on the ground with a broken back as the Viet Cong were closing in. He describes himself in those days as a very “backslidden” Christian. He asked the Lord to help me get out of the situation and promised his life to Him if He did. To this day, NO one can explain how he suddenly felt surrounded by a physical warmth and then got up and walked out from under a tree to the waiting rescue helicopter under fire. Once in the helicopter, he could no longer move. After a lot of surgery and rehab, he’s OK now. He kept his promise and is a dedicated minister today who thinks rationally. ;-)

Or likely any Americans. I wonder what he considers his sacred texts. Notice he never says.

... and I want all people to feel that this is their prayer.”

In the words of my teenage daughter.....EPIC FAIL. Him praying to a deity which know one knows anything about, about equals him reciting one of the rev. wrights sermons backwards. It's a meaningless waste of time.

I WILL NOT feel that this is my prayer, (sight unseen). Too bad mister, you lose.

It almost sounds as if he knows he's not a Christian, although I doubt he'll ever admit it out loud.
