Matthew 25 and Obama

I suppose one must either laugh or cry and I choose not to let despair take me. It has come to my attention that there is an organization named the "Matthew 25 Network" that is promoting Obama for president, thinking by means of biblical references to lure unsuspecting Evangelicals and Catholics into voting for Obama. It reminds me of the saying in Matthew 24:24 "For false Christs and false prophets shall appear . . . to deceive even the elect - if that were possible." Well, in Novemember we will find out if it was possible or not.

How darkly humourous (and utterly sad) it is that this group should have picked this particular passage of Scripture to buttress their claims that Obama is worthy of Christian support. Here we read that 'whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." (25:40). The first thing that comes naturally into one's mind when one hears the phrase "the least of these" in these dark times is the unborn babies. Insofar as Obama stands for protecting the rights of abortionists to burn them with chemicals, cause them to be ejected from the womb prematurely and left to die and have their skulls crushed with cruel instruments of death, he stands for doing these things to Jesus, at least according to this Scripture.

Whenever I think of Matthew 25 and Obama, I remember that as far as Jesus is concerned how Obama treats the helpless, naked, unborn child is how Obama feels about Jesus. And it reminds me that such a man could never be supported by a Christian - except one who has been deceived.

If you are actually uncertain about whether or not Obama is the most pro-abortion politican ever to run for a major public office in the United States, you can read this article by Robert George of Princeton University entitled: "Obama's Abortion Extremism." It is factual, concise and comprehensive. It is, as far as I can see, unanswerable.
