“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.” — Matthew 7: 15, 16 (NIV)
Barack Obama bellowed before a crowd in Germany, “The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. The walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, Christians and Muslims and Jews cannot stand.”
Obama’s words do not speak of freedom. A coming together under one banner, the banner of “working together,” Mr. Obama believes that the world has a responsibility to unite.
Newsflash, no country will want to drop their way of life to unite under one cause (or rather it is hype). That is what Barack Obama is advocating…to drastically change the way we are used to living.
Each country is entitled to have a defining border to defend its land. Each country has a right to say that a person who has violated its laws and is not officially a citizen, should be deported. Each country has a right to separately deal with problems as they come.
Every country is vastly different in traditions, the way in which they govern, etc.
No one should be pushed to forge a bond between religions, or rather, to water down their faiths to merge in one mind set. Christianity, Islam, and Judaism…the ideology of these religions vary from each other and an effort to break down the walls will be futile.
True, every human being is a child of God and one should embark on friendships with someone of a different faith, but that doesn’t mean that one should forget about the tenets of their faith. Faith largely guides one’s steps in life.
If you do not believe such an effort is being made to erode the differences in the major faiths, pay close attention to the “interfaith” movement that is making its way throughout America and the world. That said, all faiths are not equal and a joining at the hip of world religions to achieve world peace is not the answer.
Free will. That’s what Jesus Christ offers mankind. Mankind must not be suckered into committing to more and more when much has already been given and squandered.
As long as there are corrupt dictators and corrupt regimes making life miserable for their citizens, this world will be in turmoil. Unless corruption and evil is eliminated, then committing more money, resources, energy, and human sacrifice will not make a difference.
Barack Obama must respect the right of the individual to make decisions as to religious pursuits. He must respect the right of a country to make decisions as to how it will handle its welfare and its way of life. So long as governments don’t oppress their people, Obama shouldn’t ignore the traits that make us different and unique.
Considering the wreck the world is in these days and what is transpiring on the horizon, Barack Obama’s words are ominous. It may seem that he is playing “uniter of the world” but Obama’s actions should he become president would further divide and then weaken and disable America.
Barack Obama’s Global Poverty Act, S. 2433, is scheduled to be hashed out in the Senate in the near future. During a weak economy, Obama is proposing through this bill that the US give more money to help poverty stricken nations. America has given enough in terms of humanitarianism. If anything, we need to put the focus back on America, and help our own people. And should this bill pass, who knows how much leverage the UN will have in American affairs.
Unemployment is at 5% and we have a presidential candidate that is more concerned with other nations’ problems. Again, unless mass corruption abates, then the problem of starvation, ethnic cleansing (mass murder), and poverty will continue. No amount of money will make the problem disappear. After all, shouldn’t this quote mean something?:
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
There is a sizeable amount of Americans who are dissatisfied with both nominees for president. No matter what the media would have us all to believe (that Americans are largely set on Obama), people are not happy with either parties or the fact that the media is one-sided in that Obama is getting an extreme amount of coverage.
The reason Barack Obama is able to make such remarks in Germany is because voters are largely ignorant to what changes may occur if Obama were to be voted in as president of the United States.
We must be educated as to what changes are being put into place that will cause us to lose the very nation we have enjoyed for 232 years. We are on the brink of collapsing and there are those who are working to speed up our demise.
It’s time to make some noise; we have 4 months left until the general election. One way Americans can get their power back is to be INFORMED and then use the information to fight back…fight we must.
