And finally..... here it is!
EVAN THOMAS: "Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn't felt that way in recent years. So Obama's had, really, a different task. We're seen too often as the bad guys. And he ... he has a very different job from ... Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is 'we are above that now.' We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something ... I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above ... above the world, he's sort of god. He's..."
THOMAS: "He's going to bring all different sides together."
The bible gives a great example in Jeremiah of what is happening to this nation because of false gods and those who worship them.
Hear and give ear; be not proud, for the LORD has spoken.
Give glory to the LORD your God before he brings darkness,
before your feet stumble on the twilight mountains, and while you look for light he turns it into gloom and makes it deep darkness.
But if you will not listen, my soul will weep in secret for your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears, because the LORD’s flock has been taken captive.
Say to the king and the queen mother: "Take a lowly seat,
for your beautiful crown has come down from your head."
The cities of the Negeb are shut up, with none to open them;
all Judah is taken into exile, wholly taken into exile.
"Lift up your eyes and see those who come from the north.
Where is the flock that was given you, your beautiful flock?
What will you say when they set as head over you those whom you yourself have taught to be friends to you? Will not pangs take hold of you like those of a woman in labor?
And if you say in your heart, 'Why have these things come upon me?' it is for the greatness of your iniquity that your skirts are lifted up and you suffer violence.
Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots?
Then also you can do good who are accustomed to do evil.
I will scatter you like chaff driven by the wind from the desert.
This is your lot, the portion I have measured out to you, declares the LORD, because you have forgotten me and trusted in lies.
I myself will lift up your skirts over your face, and your shame will be seen.
I have seen your abominations, your adulteries and neighings, your lewd whorings, on the hills in the field. Woe to you, O Jerusalem! How long will it be before you are made clean?" - Jeremiah 13:15-27 ESV
No matter how you feel about him as president, be warned that by considering him god, you will be doing Satan's bidding.
May the glory of the Almighty God be everything we strive for in Jesus' precious, holy name.
