T.D. Jakes Praises Obama

This is from CNN:

(CNN) — Last night, I like most Americans of all stripes, watched with visible goose bumps as history was made. I sat with my 13-year-old son and looked from the screen to his eyes as Sen. Barack Obama became the first African American in history to lead a U.S. major-party ticket when he claimed the nomination for the Democratic Party for president of the United States.

I congratulate Sen. Obama on this historic accomplishment. I thank him for accepting the torch that was lit by our forefathers and proudly carrying it through the darkness of our struggles, trials and tribulations, bringing light and hope to a new generation, and for facing all those who said “No” and “You can’t win,” or “It will never happen,” and firmly, proudly, defiantly saying, “Yes I can!”  Source.

I fail to see how Obama’s nomination brings light and hope to a new generation.  Obama supports all things that are an offense to the Lord our God.  He supports homosexuality and abortion, yet Jakes doesn’t touch upon that.  How can Jakes, as a minister, throw his support behind a man that opposes the very righteousness of God and tout him as a hope and light to a new generation?  This begs the question, what kind of light?  It is not the light of God.

I was going to put together a long post addressing this, but Reverend O’Neal Dozier said it better than I can.  Below is his reaction to Jakes’ praise of Barack Obama:

Conducting Talk Show interviews on this topic is O’Neal Dozier, an ex-pro football player, lawyer, PhD and pastor, who is reminding Americans not to get caught up in the style or persuasiveness of candidates but rather to examine their fruit and where they stand regarding traditional Judeo-Christian issues, upon which our nation was founded.

Speaking on behalf of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, Rev. Dozier explains to your audience, “The Scripture warns Christians not be deceived by fine sounding words by false teachers. Obama’s rhetoric is lofty but his positions hellish, his speeches are inspiring but his voting record is infernal. Obama supports abortion, homosexuality, and restrictions of religious liberty.”

“It is troubling that such a powerful communicator and spiritual leaders as T.D. Jakes would be caught up in the Barack Obama rhetoric. This illustrates a major problem. Christians need to be spiritually discerning. They must examine the fruit of person’s life and not allow themselves to be caught up in the hollow type of charismatic campaign speeches.”

Rev. Dozier quotes a prophetic warning from the Bible, written nearly 2000 years ago, predicting the current political and spiritual culture of our day: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth and shall be turned into fables.” — II Timothy 4:3-4

“It’s a sad day when the preachers have become like the politicians who tell people with itching ears what they want to hear, rather than the truth they need to hear from the time tested sound moral counsel of the Bible. It is also a sad day in America when we find prominent pastors like Bishop T.D. Jakes praising extremely liberal politicians like Barack Obama who offers abortion and homosexuality to satisfy the lusts of the people and unfortunately T.D. Jakes gives him a rousing amen.”  Source.

  1. I am so very dissapointed with TD Jakes. I cannot Believe that He Sends Accolades to a person because of the color of their skin.
    How does that line up with the word of God when Obama Stands for everything AGAINST the word of God. I am very disapointed and deeply grieved in my spirit with TD Jakes as a Spokes person for the things of God . It truly concerns me that TD Jakes really believes what He preaches from the Publit about The God we Serve. The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. How can this Be! The only thing that comes to mind is even the elect could be deceived and I believe that TD Jakes is deceived. He choose the color of skin and a Political Party over The WOrd of God . I am so very disapointed in Him ..

  2. Sad Kenyan says:

    I am shocked at how American’s can be so gullible. Did you see what almost happened to our country Kenya? It is only by the grace of God that we are a nation today. Obama and Raila (now prime minister) are relatives. They used the same slogan “change” which is not really defined, and only professed christianity when challenged about their muslim background /ties/ promises. I pray and hope the church in America including Jakes wakes up and stop just seeing a black man (racism) but see him for what he is.

  3. Xolisile Nhlapo says:

    I dont I understand why people always look on the negative side of things and fail to go back on the very same bible to realise that nothing happens under heaven without GOD knowing or approves of it, And when it comes to rulership GOD is the one who appoints kings & disapprove of them so how is it difficult to understand that with Obama. And when u understand that, then it wont really be about what bishop T.D Jakes says or anybody but its all in the plan of GOD. THE BIBLE SAYS for every good and perfect gift comes from the GOD so how is it, that the very first black person in history to become a democratic party president is a bad thing, thats good & amazing and its worth celebrating rather than looking @ the negative. And if not Obama then who MRS Clinton is she perfect…? This is not a pastoral campaign is the presidents position….!

  4. Raven says:

    Obama’s going to give us change. so whats new? we give the government dollors and we get the change thats how it work for years. history being made but at what cost, non of the choices we were given, were of any good to us as americans.
    remember some one said ” my kingdom is not of this world.”
    hey mister can ya spare some change. more poor americans. and the so called church is wanting its cut of your pie. you give to me and God will give to you. WHAT A CON!!!!

  5. akatennant says:

    Xolisile Nhlapo, you said, “nothing happens under heaven without GOD knowing or APPROVES of it…”. Chapter and verse please… God is all-knowing, but I can’t find, in the entire Bible, one of His attributes being “all-approving”. I would encourage you to read my article on Mr. Jakes and Mr. Obama (http://ifmypeople.wordpress.com/2008/06/17/congratulations-obama/). It sure is odd how so many young African Americans are Democrats. You go back around fifty years, and it wasn’t like that. If you study the Democratic party, you will find they were the ones that kept slavery legal for so long.

  6. JanFran says:

    So its all right if a White man sends us to hell in a hand basket?
    But its wrong if a Black man sends us to hell in a hand basket? We don’t know what this man will do as President just like we didn’t know what Bush was going to do as president, right? At least let the man try. And if he can take us down a more evil path than the majority of the other presidents have then shame on us. Shame on us because we have sat there and let it happened. We need to be a block of people putting together a powerful voice making our feeling known. And Pray for Gods perfect will be done in the earth as it is in heaven. Remember this people God never forced any body to do anything. He told us to follow righteousness and shun evil “SO” no matter what Barack stands for “How will we live our individual lives?” Will we live these lives of righteousness in front of our co-workers, friends, and families? Do you guys realize that all these policies that Barack is for, have been on the books for years? Let the man know and maybe they will be changed.

  7. Rachel says:

    THERE IS SO MUCH IGNORANCE IN THE CHURCH TODAY DURING THESE ELECTION TIMES, THAT I AM AFRAID OF WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO CHRISTIANS DURING THE LAST DAYS.
    OPEN YOUR EYES AND READ YOUR WORD. WE KNOW THAT AS CHRISTIANS THERE IS MORE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS THAN ABORTIONS AND HOMOSEXUALITY. IF THATS ALL THERE WAS TO IT, THEN WE WOULD ALL BE A LOT MORE HOLY THAN WE ARE. GOD SPEAKS AGAINST MANY ACTIONS THAT OUR REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE HAS BEEN TAKING PART IN, BUT HE HAS US ALL SO BRAINWASHED THAT WE ARE ACTING AS IF BARACK OBAMA IS THE DEVIL.
    I would like to make it clear to people who dont bother to do research, that Barack Obama is not in support of Abortion or Homosexuality, but in our ability to choose our way for ourselves. He has expressed on many occasions that he does not agree with it, but will not deprive anyone of their rights to choose. I assume all of you made your own choices as well. That is because of the grace of God, not because of any politician. Obama is just a man, who is he to take God’s gift away from you.
    TD Jakes sees in Barack Obama those Godly qualities that too many ignorant Christians refuse to see because they are blinded by these two issues. He probably sees Obama not only as someone who is in support of keeping Israel secure, which is what God told us to do, sharing eachothers burdens, acting as our brother’s keeper and as a good sumaritan, and his entire campaign is based on unity, and love for our neighbor. We know if we read our word that Love is God’s most important commandment. If we watch the two campaigns, we will see that John McCain has embodied ZERO fruits of the spirit, showed no love to his opponent, slandered his name, insulted his faith, attacked his character, and manipulated millions of Christians and made fools out of them. Lets talk biblical for a minute. Like I said before, Love is the most important commandment first to Love the Lord your God, and second to Love your neighbor. McCain cannot even talk about God without getting uncomfortable. Dont even bother asking him to acknowledge Jesus Christ because he will get around it. Slander- The bible says Matt 15:9 slander comes from the heart of evil. John McCain has run his campaign on nothing but slanderous words for his opponent. His campaign has nothing to do with his own qualifications, but show only hate to his brother. Lets not also forget greed of republicans. We forget that there are other sins outside of the sexual sin, and that God speaks against greed and mammon as well. He is all about money and keeping the rich rich. He does not consider the majority of the country who is struggling; therefore, tears down his inspirational opponent who’s nearly entire campaign revolves around coming together, taking responsibility, hope for the hopeless and encouragement. For the first time in history, true equality is in reach, which is what our country has always strived for (at least that is what they say). He is a man who openly admits that Jesus Christ is in his life everyday, has carried himself with love for his neighbors, honor for his Christian Brothers and Sisters, and brought the concept of trusting in God back into the democratic party. It is a reminder that the party you are afiliated with does not identify your relationship with the Lord. The Bible says that people will perish for a lack of wisdom, so dont let John McCain make a fool out of you. Look over all issues, not just the ones he think will snag you.

  8. Rebecca says:

    I wish we all were this passionate about state and local politics. That’s where these battles are won and lost.

  9. KT says:

    Once again people are missing the point of Pastor Jakes’ decision to give KUDOS to Sen. Obama’s nomination for the highest political position in our nation. He is not condoning Obama’s beliefs, only that we as a nation have evolved in thought to the point where we would even consider electing a Minority to lead this nation over the next 4 years. Not once has he stated that abortion is right and that he agrees with it. Not once did agree that homosexuality is a good thing. What he HAS done has acknowledged the fact that the people of this nation have finally begun to move beyond the thinking that only ONE type of individual is suited to lead this country or even be considered suitable to represent anyone other than a specific race creed or color. In the beginning GOD gave us a choice, over and over again. We screwed up on several different levels, but he continued to give us that choice hoping that we would learn from our mistakes. No where does GOD say that Man should continue to take away the choices of HIS people that would prevent them from using FREE WILL to do the right thing. What HE did say was for man to create laws to protect HIS people and if these laws are broken then the chosen consequences shall be enforced. Moral laws are punishable by GOD not man. If one should CHOOSE to break the laws that GOD created, than he shall be punished by GOD in GOD’s time not man’s. If one should choose to break the laws that were created to PROTECT man then he will have to answer to man’s punishment. Just because I may choose to vote for Obama doesn’t mean that I think homosexuality is right or that I agree with abortion. It means that I think that Obama is the right person to carry out the task of leading this country to a better level than which he found it in when he was elected. Whether Obama is elected into the presidential office or not is not to be taken lightly, but just the fact that he even has a chance to BE elected is a great event in of itself. I’ve come to the conclusion, that GOD doesn’t make mistakes, he allows US to do that on our own. And we do a very good job of it all by ourselves! But alas, these are the choices WE make.

  10. skipper says:

    Most Christian (Black) still have a slave mentality. They still have white Jesus on there walls, as if nothing is wrong with this. They refuse to study the fact that John McCain has been a crook and a liar since his POW days in Viet Nam. He dumped his first wife months after returning to Nam, because her face was disfigured in an automobile accidents, and married for money 3 months later. He was part of the Keating Five, savings and loan scandal over 20 years ago. Taxpayers lost over 1 billion dollars in this fraud. McCain has always been a crook with questionable character, but you hold Barack Obama to a higher level of standards.
    Nothing or no one could be worst than John McCain. You obviously did not learn your lesson about who the devil is in politics. You live in bondage by choice.

  11. Chrystal says:

    Skipper…

    Who said I support McCain?

    What the original post is about is “supposed” men of God supporting worldly, anti-biblical candidates who support homosexuality and abortion… like Obama.

  12. MATTHEW says:

    Skipper,

    You may want to be careful when you use hyperbolic statements such as “Nothing or no one could be worse than Jonh McCain”. I agree John McCain is not a spotless virgin in the political or personal realm. However, to say that John McCain is the absolute bottom of the barrel is to look ignorantly at history. This planet has been the stage for some bad dudes. Your comment would be something I would expect from a political ad but not this site.

    Also, don’t gloss over Obama’s failures. He too has had very questionable relationships and has been involved with scandals as well. He has a brother living in poverty and he does nothing to help him. He supports abortion and is an ardent supporter of the homosexual movements. When he gets into office (yes I said when) he is going to have to nurture some of those extreme left wing relationships, and that is going to be sad. I also, find it funny that the author of that anti-obama book was detained in kenya. Obama’s family has strong ties there. Makes one wonder, what will happen to us if we speak out against our most Holy Majesty when he gets elected.

  13. Carol says:

    Neither candidate is a good choice. If you knew the scenes behind what goes on, you would look at these choices as no choice at all!

  14. What do you suggest TD Jakes should have done?
    Condemned Obama’s nomination. Obama is a global phenomenon and TD Jakes was simply applauding him for his achievements.

    If Hillary Clinton had made it I would not think it improper for TD Jakes to commend that she has done well. A Clinton nomination would have been equally historic.

    The temptation here is that TD Jakes applauded Obama because they are both black. This is assumption is cynical but understandable, all the same it is an unfair conclusion.

    Let us assume Joyce Meyer had made similar comments would we have accused her of putting race before faith?

    TD Jakes is a gifted man who like many global influential issue statements when events of biblical proportion occur. He commented in his position as intellectual not a minister. In no part of his comment did he mention God or Jesus.

    Are we suggesting that TD Jakes should not have political views. Let us assume I vote for Obam does that condemn to eternal torments in the flames of hell?

    If TD Jakes had given the same commentary for Sarah Palin I am tempted to believe that the Christian community would have been elated. Would it have been right to acknowledge Palin because she is one of us?

    Lets separate church and politics in all totality.

    TD Jakes has a following of millions around the world and he is a brilliant intellectual. He is thoroughly qualified and well placed to make the comment he made.

  15. MATTHEW says:

    Edmund,

    I appreciate your opinion, however it is impossible to seperate your relationship with Christ from Politics. Jesus is my life and my relationship with Him permeates every area of my life. I can’t say I love Jesus then vote for someone who won’t give even the most basic protections to unwanted children who are born alive. You suggest that life should be seen as a dichotomy: in other words, you suggest that life has two parts. The first part is holy and the second is ordinary and the two should never mix. This is the mentality that leads to Sunday Morning Christians who live like the Devil while at work or play. There is no part of our lives where the light of Christ shouldn’t touch. To me it has nothing to do with race. McCain only offers lip service opposition to abortion and he will never do anything to stop it. Thus, many Christians can’t bring themselves to vote for him either. As followers of Christ, we shouldn’t get wrapped up in celebrity or “phenomenon”, Man is but a mist and our heart need to be set on God not man. You say that T.D. Jakes was just commenting on an event of Biblical proportions. However, keep in mind about half of all Biblical events were not good or positive occurrences. Time will tell on Obama.

  16. Carlos Espinosa says:

    Why is Bishop Jakes supporting Obama for president? Is it solely based on race? I cant understand why would he support such a liberal individual? Is this simply because he attends a christian church and calls himself a christian? Or does it basically come down to race? Someone please ask him to re-analyze the senator’s record!

    Obama is being supported by heavy sinners such as; Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro! These are secular individuals who clearly do not follow the word of God Trust me I lived in those two countries! Not to mention his support amoung gays and extreme liberals!

    I must say I was a big admirer until I found out about his support for senator Obama…I’m sad to say Mr. Jakes is not tuning into the word of God on this one. Instead he is clinging to his race… This is truly unbelievable!

    Thanks
    Blessings!

  17. Selena says:

    WOW I did like him and had a few books from him. But he has lost all my respect and friends that I have feel the same way I do.I just can belive how a man of god can back some one like him. I don’t care if he was white he would not get my vote because of what he stands for.
    That is just me…
    GOD HELP AMERICA!!!!!!!!!

  18. dr. charlotte gerry says:

    Double wow!!!! i can not support a ministry who supported someone who does not line up in with the teachings of Christ. he has loss my support as well.

    God Help america’s black preachers to get their thinking off color.

    change the morality of the mans heart, then you change a man. then you change a natiion.

    i too sing America!!! i am african-american women. i love this country but i love God more and His rigtheousness.

    disappointed,
    dr. gerry

  19. Carol says:

    If TD was a true man of God he would not be praising Obama.

    Oh Lord, in wrath, remember mercy…when the judgment hits this country, they have the leader they deserve, for all of its abominations perpetually being done…

  20. Cindy says:

    Amen Dr Gerry! I too love this country, but am disappointed in its sinful nature.

    I believe God is giving this nation what it asked for and it will soon see his judgment, much like in the days of Sodom and Gomorah.

    I pray for God’s mercy on the souls of christians who are being misled and deceived in these last days.

    “It’s better to never have known of him than to have known of him and leave him”

  21. Gail says:

    Our politics within the kingdom of God should not be identity politics or racial politics, they should be KINGDOM politics… period. We should all share God’s heart for preserving LIFE, and traditional FAMILY. Why is it then, although comprising the largest churchgoing population, the Black vote is consistently, historically, traditionally ANTI-LIFE (“pro-choice”) and ANTI-FAMILY (for “same sex marriage etc). This is nothing less than RACIAL IDOLATRY, and grieves the heart of God. For an African American Christian to feel Obama is “representing” is to say one’s primary identify is not in Christ but with their ethnicity or color. And it is this which makes it idolatrous. JMO

  22. mommyof2 says:

    I have seen TD Jakes preach since I was a little girl, he would travel to Solid Rock which is where I am a member. I never thought in my wildest dreams I would ever see such a man of God, run to a man who does not want anything to do with God. Jakes gives to much praise to Obama just for his color alone, but never touches on issues like abortion, same sex-marriage, partical abortion, fairness act which will be cutting out Romans 1. Because it talks about homosexuality. Obama will slowly try to take away more more out of the Bible and use it as a Hate Crime, but as you can plainly see the only religon Obama is trying to stop is Christianity. This is going to mark a start to the last days, and Jakes supported it. I will pray for everyone no matter their standing but I hope one day they will all see the truth.

  23. Laurie says:

    To Rachel, please take note…(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) told a crowd at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio, Sunday that he believes the Sermon on the Mount justifies his support for legal recognition of same-sex unions. He also told the crowd that his position in favor of legalized abortion does not make him “less Christian.”

    “I don’t think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state,” said Obama. “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.” ((Hear audio from WTAP-TV)) St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans condemns homosexual acts as unnatural and sinful.

    Are you familiar with this story…US polls: Indonesian Islamic fundamentalists cheer Obama win-’ Achmad Sobry Lubis, sec. gen. of the militant, anti-American Front Pambela Islam said that he ‘praised Allah for Obama’s win’. He also said that ‘Obama’s multicultural upbringing should give him the tools to better understand the Muslim world’.
    Do you realize the evil that is about to be unleashed on this nation? Let it be known, I do not support or condone either McCain or Obama, they are both lost sinners in need of prayer. However, the hidden evil that lurks behind the Obama regime is about to be manifest, and will fit in with the end time purpose and plan of Almighty God. This will separate the wheat from the tares, true blood bought believers will face persecution, and death, while the superficial will fall deadly silent.
    O Father, in wrath, remember mercy…

  24. Eli says:

    I like what MLK said many years ago, you know about how a man should be judged by the content of his character, not the color of his skin. I don’t care what color our new leader is, it’s irrelevant. Obama’s character leaves TOO MUCH to be desired. He’s been associated with wicked people for a long time. He’s the most pro-abortion, anti-patriot president we’ve ever elected. T.D. Jakes should be ashamed of himself. How can he claim to follow God, and be a pastor, and promote a candidate who’s foundational beliefs are the antithesis of Godly values? The only logical answer is that pastor Jakes sees color, not character. And that is the exact OPPOSITE of what civil rights leader Dr. King emplored people to do.

  25. Ken Silva says:

    Crystal,

    “How can Jakes, as a minister, throw his support behind a man that opposes the very righteousness of God…”

    It’s because T.D. Jakes doesn’t even know; he is a Oneness Pentecostal and Word Faith heretic:

    KEEPING YOU APPRISED OF: T.D. JAKES ON THE TRINITY

    T.D. JAKES ANOTHER WORD FAITH HYPOCRITE

  26. Chrystal says:

    Hi, Ken. I knew that Jakes was Oneness Pentecostal, and I knew about Joel Hemphill as well. I hadn’t seen the correlation until now. It’s definitely something to think about.

    Thanks! :)

  27. Ken Silva says:

    Ah, Miss Chyrstal I knows ya’ll knew that, silly.

    Seriously, what I said was for the benefit of some of your commenters above is all. ;-)

  28. Chrystal says:

    No, no…I mean it when I say that I thank you for pointing it out, because I seriously hadn’t thought about it in that light. The correlation between the two hadn’t occured to me in the least. Interesting. It gives me a lot to ponder now.

    I like learning new things. Fun, ain’t it? :D

  29. heartlandgranny says:

    Why be surprised? He left sound doctrine about the time he broke the million dollar mark.

  30. DMM says:

    I am a multiracial like Obama. I liked Obama but because of my faith in JESUS WHO IS LORD, I could not bring myself to vote for neither candadite being convicted by the Holy Spirit one for the id mark of the beast and other for homosexuality and abortion issue. How could a Born again believer go against Gods word. Unless he is not truly a born again or blind.
    Matthew15:14 “Let them alone. “They are blind leaders of the blind, both will fall into a ditch.”

    All I can say is people perish for the lack of knowledge in Gods word. Hosea 4:6:” My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Lot of so called preachers are not Gods children. Matthew 7:15″Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.” Matthew 7:22″Many will say to Me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?”7: 23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” Oh how we
    need to pray for the lost sheep. Listen to his word. God speaks to us through his Holy Bible.
    How is it I ask myself even preachers who are ignoring Gods word. Now I understand when God says in his word Matthew 22:14″For many are called, but few are chosen.” Indeed Indeed how true Gods word is. If only we would all hear. Romans 10:17: “So then faith comes by hearing , and hearing by the Word of God.” I pray you all
    read Revelation where Jesus speaks to the churches. Starting With Revelation Chapter 1, 2 & 3. All I know is you christians stay close to Gods
    word. Pray and read Gods word like never before. He will give you wisdom and discernment. Do not be decieved. Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them “Take heed that no one decieve you. 5″For many will come in My name, saying, I am the Christ and will deceive many. Scriptures taken from New King James Version. Now my only true Shepherd is JESUS.
    Man will only disappoint us. Ezekiel 34: 10″Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold I am against the shepherds, and I will require My flock at their hand; I will cause them to cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall feed themselves no more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouths, that they may no longer be food for them.: 11′For thus says the Lord God: “Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out. 12 “As a “shepherd seeks out his flock on the day he is among his scattered sheep, so will I seek out My sheep and deliver them from all the places where they were scattered on a cloudy and dark day.”
    I am not surprised about these preachers today.

    Let God lead you as your Shepherd. I am just so
    surprised as to how many preachers are claiming to know God. Search the scriptures, we don’t need to judge just seek God out and he will reveal all you need to know. Discernment in Gods word.

  31. Oh Please says:

    You all are buffoons. Blacks have overwhelmingly supported the Democrats for years. This is nothing new.

    I know plenty of black pastors who have always voted for Democratic candidates in local, state, and national elections. They are democrats. They believe in helping out poor people. Gay marriage and abortion are not their top priorities. Who are you all to judge them for that?

    If you all don’t want abortions, don’t get them. Blacks have more problems to worry about than whether gay people marry or not. That is not an issue to most of them. Frankly, I understand that. Do you think the blacks who were trapped in N.O. after Hurricane Katrina gave a hoot about whether gays in California or Massachusetts got to marry or not?

    Get off your high horses.

  32. Laurie says:

    Do you think it is okay for two women to live together and engage in same sex sex? Or two men? Do you believe God’s word is truth; the only authoritative source we have? Do you understand what happens to a nation when morals are tossed to the wind? Here is a link to a great sermon from John MacArthur, if you have time, it’s worth a read… http://www.gty.org/Resources/Sermons/GTY109

    Too many pastors, regardless of skin color, have put aside God’s word and voted based on personal choice. To be honest, there is no choice, nor has there been for quite some time. But, we trust in God, we know He is on His throne, He truly is in control.
    I do not know if you have children, but if you do, how would you feel if a lesbian was your daughter’s p.e. teacher and watched her dress and undress everyday? Or, if your son’s coach was a homosexual and made unwanted advances, would you be okay with that? We don’t have to limit this to homosexuality, but your comment seems to imply that this perversion and murdering the unborn or ‘no big deal’.
    Did you ever stop and wonder why this world is in such a chaotic state? Could it be God’s judgment on the very sins you think are no big deal?
    As for the unborn, please click here and tell me if you are unmoved… http://www.sliceoflaodicea.com/purpose-driven-madness/rick-warren-theres-blood-on-your-hands/
    There are many problems to not worry about, but to pray about. Sin is rampant in America, and people are calloused to it. There is such an attitude of indifference, it’s frightening. I recall these words from Jesus Christ so vividly in a time such as this, “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.” Luke 17:26
    When the ark was finished, God shut the door on Noah and his family. Then, the uncaring, calloused people, who’d heard the preaching of Noah, the warning of judgment coming due to wickedness, were all swept away by the mighty massive floodwaters, the instrument of God’s judgment.

    Once again, the ark door is about to be slammed shut.

  33. Edmund Kudzayi says:

    Oh Please

    Makes a brilliant point. I think the suggestion that voting Republican is the ‘christian’ thing to do is a severely flawed suggestion.

    Yes republicans are anti- abortion but they also believe in some pretty ungodly things. I’m not sure if the Muslims think they are the godliest of persons.

    Respectfully, who said anything about voting Republican? America is in DIRE need of intercessory prayer by all who belong to Christ. It doesn’t matter who sits in the White House, God is the One who sits on His throne, and He will use leaders of every nation to fulfill His purpose and plan. There isn’t time to bicker over political parties, we should never desire to control America through either corrupt party. The only thing that will change this nation is the unadulterated preaching of the Gospel, with boldness, in love; praying God will once again be merciful. It isn’t going to get any better, as the old saying goes, ‘you ain’t seen nothin’ yet’.
    Let’s not compromise with sin because of loyalty to a political party, or skin color, or gender…let us be brave men and women of God and proclaim His truth from the rooftops, standing on the side of absolute truth: the Word of God

    OH PLEASE,

    YOUR ARGUMENT MAY MAKE SENSE TO YOU BUT IT IS IGNORANT OF REALITY.
    BLACKS WENT OVERWHELMINGLY TO THE POLLS IN CALIFORNIA AND VOTED PROP 8 IN, THUS HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT GAY MARRIAGE ISN’T A BIG DEAL TO THEM. THE GAYS DIDN’T PROTEST IN FRONT OF BLACK CHURCHES BECAUSE THAT WOULD COST THEM POLITICALLY, THUS THE FACT THAT BLACKS VOTED FOR PROP 8 DIDN’T MAKE THE MSM.
    YOU MENTIONED KATRINA, AS IF RACISM IS STILL THEIR BIGGEST PROBLEM. I KNOW THAT RACISM STILL EXISTS, BUT TRUST ME IT GOES BOTH WAY NOW. BLACKS HAVE THE SAME OPPORTUNITIES THAT WHITES DO. I WORK AT AN HISTORICALLY BLACK UNIVERSITY. IT IS 95% BLACK AND THERE ARE STUDENTS HERE THAT ARE POOR, RICH, AND EVEN THOSE WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS BEING GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE. ALL OF THE SINGLE MOMS GET TONS OF MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT, SO THEY CAN GO TO SCHOOL (I KNOW BECAUSE I WORKED ON STUDENT ACCOUNTS IN THE BUSINESS OFFICE.)
    THE GREATEST PROBLEM THAT BLACKS FACE TODAY IS THE BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE. JUST THIS PAST WEEK THEY QUESTIONED 6 RANDOM STUDENTS AND THE ALL SAID THAT THAT WAS PROBLEM # 1. WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T DOING THE DRIVE BY SHOOTINGS OR THE GANG BEAT DOWNS. IT IS THEIR OWN RACE. ALSO, LOOK AT THE SKIN COLOR OF THOSE WHO DANGLED FROM HELICOPTERS TO RESCUE ALL THE FOLKS WHO WERE CRAZY ENOUGH TO STAY IN NORLEANS. THAT’S CORRECT THEY WERE WHITE.
    YOUR ARGUMENT MAY HAVE SOUNDED GOOD, BUT IT WAS JUST PLAIN WRONG.

    IF BLACKS WANT TO HELP OUT POOR PEOPLE THEN DO IT, BUT NOTHING SAYS THEY HAVE TO USE THE GUBMINT AS A MIDDLE MAN. ALTHOUGH WE ARE LEGALLY REQUIRED TO DO SO, THE GOVERNMENT IS ONE OF THE MOST IN-EFFICIENT GROUPS TO GIVE YOUR MONEY TOO.
