“President Obama on Monday [today] defended San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand during the playing of the national anthem.”
I wrote last week, “Obama foolishly exacerbates every difficult and delicate situation in the nation, demonstrating that he is the antithesis of the spiritually wise. Dr. Bruce K. Waltke notes about such a scornful man: “He has a genius for invective and denigration that impresses the gullible as long as he has his way. He opens his big mouth and, unleashing the tensions and strains in a community, he sets the whole nation aflame and destroys it.” goo.gl/zC9rFr
There are two derogatory words translated “Fool” in the English versions in Proverbs, Àewîl and kesîl. “Unlike the gullible, the fool is fixed in the correctness of his own opinion, which flies in the face of the established moral order revealed through the sage. Ptah-hotep noted, ‘A fool sees knowledge in ignorance, usefulness in harmfulness…. He lives on that by which one dies, his food is distortion of speech.’ He is the opposite of ‘the wise’ in his moral and religious intelligence.”* Michael V. Fox frames the “Fool” as “morally obtuse… because they are blind to God’s plan.”
President Obama represents a kind of person referred to in Scripture as a conceited fool, who, “in contrast to the teachable wise, are fixed in the correctness of their own opinions — unlike the gullible — and so not educable.”**
President Obama’s foist of same-sex intercourse and marriage, lawless Executive Orders and presidential memorandum, and transgender bathrooms in public schools is likely only the tip of the iceberg of his moral obtuseness, which will appear over the next decade or two. Typically only one-tenth of the volume of an iceberg is above water.
The president’s behavior and legacy will be seen by future generations as ethical chaos, prejudiced and morally confused. His penchant to speak of the “peaceful spirit of Islam”, along with speeches peppered with references of God (which has not a single thing in common with Biblical Christianity) is baffling. Obama’s refusal to call Muslim terrorists, “terrorists”, to call his former mentors, like, communist Frank Marshall Davis, terrorist William Ayers, criminal Tony Rezko, and anti-American racist Jeremiah Wright “fools” and “anarchists”, has brought into existence a nation whose citizens are living in a topsy-turvy world in utter disorder.
His entire career, i.e., IL State Senator Obama, U.S. Senator Barack Obama, and President Barack Hussein Obama, has been a walk “…along paths of darkness, himself devoid of all ethical illumination; he deserts straight roads in preference for those paths and tracks which twist and turn. This is a comparison between a man who is so devious and crafty that he loses himself and others in the maze of his cleverness, and the forthright, open man, who means what he says and whose actions are as unequivocal as his words.”***
What is clear, since his message of “Hope and Change” in 2008, President Obama is like the High Priest of liberal Secularism, dispensing the Holy Sacraments of a false religion of political correctness, multiculturalism and syncretism. His effort to meld Islam, Christianity, and Secularism into one, superior religion of America is a stench in the nostrils of God. Although framed as freedom, tolerance and democracy, Obama’s way is leading to, “widespread, systemic violations of the law [which] brings on anarchy, both as its natural consequence and as its fitting punishment.”****
Let me be clear, Secularism is lawlessness, an absence of moral government, and can be demonstrated to be the arch enemy of Christianity. And somebody’s values are going to reign supreme.
