Mr. Obama is Likened to Jesus by DNC

September 4, 2012 at 7:09 PM 10 comments

In another episode of “strange but true,” it appears that while the Democrats at the current Democratic National Convention have eliminated the word “God” from their platform [1], they apparently have no problem representing Mr. Obama as similar to Jesus. [2]

This just in from Fox reporter, Todd Starnes:  “Street vendors across downtown Charlotte are selling posters and artwork depicting President Obama as Jesus Christ and the Democratic National Convention is expected to feature a stained-glass window backdrop during their meeting.” [3]

The convention also boasts a larger-than-life sand sculpture of Mr. Obama as well.  One can only wonder why people are so willing to deify this man, or any man for that matter?

There is even an implicit reference to Mr. Obama as “the only begotten son” from John 3:16 in one particular poster being sold. There is only one God and whether Mr. Obama (or anyone associated with him) likes to hear it or not, it is not him.

You know, if I remember clearly, they attempted to do this with Mr. Obama in 2008.  One artist even rendered Mr. Obama with a crown, hanging on the cross.  He received a good amount of heat for it, nonetheless, it was out there and certainly approved by people who seem to be clueless to truly understand what they were doing.

But here we are in 2012 and the same factions seem to want to insist on likening Mr. Obama to Jesus Christ.  I think that’s interesting.  It’s blasphemy to be sure, but interesting, because it shows us how much of the lost world thinks.

My question is this:  Mr. Obama has a good deal more in common with Islam than Christianity.  Yet, he is not portrayed as someone being likened to Muhammad.  No, he is likened to Jesus.  Why is that?

Well, the answer is really simple.  Authentic Christians will not spill out into the streets chanting “blasphemy!” or desiring harm to come to him.  None of us want that at all.  What we would like is for Mr. Obama to step up and condemn what is happening by certain vendors associated with the DNC.  I cannot imagine that we will be hearing any such protesting coming from Mr. Obama or his administration.  Instead, there will be stoic silence.

Can you imagine though if these same vendors took it upon themselves to liken Mr. Obama to Muhammad?  The result would not be so good.  Thousands upon thousands of Muslims would likely become incensed and when Muslims become incensed, they begin calling for blood.  Why?  Because they believe Allah’s sensibilities have been assaulted.  If Allah’s sensibilities have been assaulted, then someone needs to die.  “Death to those who blaspheme Allah!”  Then of course, everyone would back off really quickly and bow and genuflect to Islam to stem the threat of rioting and death.  But compare Mr. Obama to Jesus Christ?  No problem.  Christians won’t become angry.  They’ll turn the other cheek.

All is not lost though.  It seems that here in 2012, cooler (and far more intelligent) heads are prevailing.  Starnes quotes one Dallas, TX pastor as saying, “If Barack Obama is the promised Messiah, I think there are going to be many Christians who are profoundly disappointed,” Jeffress told Fox News. “One only has to look at Obama’s record to understand that he is absolutely, positively not the promised One.” [4]  It seems that the antics of many within the Democratic party is serving to actually push people away, the opposite of the intended goal.

The idea that any person whose desk is in the Oval Office could be likened to Jesus Christ is not only blasphemy, but astoundingly absurd.  In fact, it is fully demonic.  The biblical accounts of Lucifer’s fall (Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28) clearly inform us that greed, pride, and lust were the root problems that caused this supernatural being’s fall from his lofty position.  Anyone who suffers from the same problem does so because he – like Lucifer who became Satan – has allowed the enemy of our souls to engage in spiritual warfare while tempting us to believe that we are better than we ought to think of ourselves.

The same thing happened to King Nebuchadnezzar as recorded in Daniel 4.  He thought he had created everything by the might of his power.  Apparently, he forgot that he himself was nothing more than a created human being who had been given the responsibility of ruling and that responsibility came from God Himself.  God knows how to take human beings down a notch or two and those who are so filled with pride that they are unable to see anything but themselves become the perfect candidate for God to show that person that they are not as great as they believe themselves to be.

The vendors are wrong to be selling these materials that highly offend authentic Christians.  The DNC is wrong to allow these vendors to sell these idolatrous items.  Mr. Obama is equally guilty of encouraging it through his stalwart silence.  If Mr. Obama is actually a Christian – as he has stated – then he would certainly understand the full ramifications of what is happening and he would denounce it.  Whom does Mr. Obama serve?  To whom has he dedicated his life?

If God did what He did to Nebuchadnezzar to show him that his power, position, and rule came at God’s behest, then He can certainly do the same with Mr. Obama or anyone who travels the same pride-filled path as Nebuchadnezzar.  Mr. Obama needs to stem the tide and reject what is literally being offered to him.  You know what is also interesting regarding Nebuchadnezzar?  Even though God removed him as the ruler of Babylon for seven years, his kingdom seemed not to suffer at all while he was away!  Life went on.  It was only Nebuchadnezzar who suffered.  God did not extend His wrath to the entire Babylonian Kingdom, but only to Nebuchadnezzar.  The people were not responsible for ol’ Neb’s narcissistic traits.  Neb was and because of it, he was the one who came under God’s judgment.

No other man who took this nation’s highest office was ever held up to this type of idolatry and worship, as far as I know.  It is nothing less than blasphemy and it needs to stop.  It is time for Mr. Obama to show the world that he is a humble man who understands that he himself was created by Someone far greater than himself.  It is time for Mr. Obama to take responsibility for the actions of those who surround him and attempt to make him believe that he is a god.

There is only one God and that is Jesus Christ.  There are no others, though there are certainly many pretenders.  They pale in comparison to the actual Person of God in Christ.  May the Lord open Mr. Obama’s eyes to the truth that he may come to accept and receive salvation as offered by Jesus Christ.  He says he is a Christian.  I don’t see it.  An authentic Christian would not vie for the power and glory that is Christ’s only.

Mr. Obama, prove that you are a Christian.  Prove that you love Jesus Christ far more than yourself.  Prove that you are capable of humility and self-denigration.  Prove that you want nothing more than to bring glory to God in Christ.  Please do it now.

Was the Church Prophesied in the Old Testament? Why Are So Many “Ministries” So HUGE?

    “Mr. Obama, prove that you are a Christian.”

    Fred, even if an angel came down from heaven and told you Barrack Obama was a Christian, I doubt you would accept it. No matter how many Church services Obama and his family attends, no matter how much other Christian pastors vouch for Obama’s Christianity, I doubt you and other birthers will ever get passed his name and his heritage. I thought America was meant to be better than that?

      If the angel was an actual unfallen angel from heaven, of course I would accept it. Then again, Jesus said we would know them by their fruits. I see what Mr. Obama does. I hear what he says. I see the fruit of his life and by all accounts, how can he be an authentic Christian?

      The fact that he CHANGED his name to a decidedly Islamic one is also very telling.

      You are quite the judgmental individual when you want to be, aren’t you, Simon, all the while trying to point out that I am judgmental.

      Looks like someone got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning…

    What about the Mormon prophesy of the White Knight, which fellow Mormons like Glenn Beck have passionately promoted.

    Moreover, the title of your article says ‘Mr. Obama is likened to Jesus by DNC’. You also say, ‘The DNC is wrong to allow these vendors to sell these idolatrous items.’

    However, if you actually go to the FoxNews article itself, it says ‘The posters were being sold outside security zones at the Democratic National Convention. The posters are not sanctioned by the DNC.’

    Thus, perhaps you are being a little misleading in your title in suggesting it is the DNC that is likening Obama to Jesus; whereas, it is independent street vendors outside of the DNC zone and not even sanctioned by the DNC!

    As for the stained glass window bizzo – perhaps another long bow or short straw Fred? Really, even if there was a stained glass window – so what?

    • 4. modres  |  September 14, 2012 at 6:41 AM

      I am very aware that the vendors were NOT sanctioned by the DNC. My point – that you clearly missed – is that Mr. Obama would have certainly KNOWN about these vendors and items and if he IS in fact, an authentic Christian, he should stand up and protest what they are selling because it is a form of idolatry.

      By virtue of the fact that the DNC refused to acknowledge what was going on under their noses, they became party to it. Wasn’t misleading at all, Simon, except to someone like you who simply likes to argue for the sake of arguing.

      Regarding Mitt Romney and the “White Knight,” I’m aware of that, but how was that being promoted at or by the RNC?

    Actually, the Islamics venerate Jesus as a great prophet! However they do not consider him a messiah and not the son of God.
    Also He did not rise from the dead, according to them. So Calling Obama like Jesus is OK with the Islamic people.
    We may see him as just another example of Anti-Christ as was Hitler, Napoleon, Caesar and many others in history.

    • 6. modres  |  September 8, 2012 at 9:43 AM

      I’m aware of what you say. One of my points was if they likened Mr. Obama to Muhammad, Muslims would be up in arms over it.

  • 7. Jason  |  September 6, 2012 at 10:29 PM

    Christ himself said that the Jews did not believe in him because he said he came in the name of the father, but when one comes in his own name, him you will receive. The one coming in his own name is the antichrist. Obama is coming in his own name with those that say he is a god….just saying it is a lot to think about.

    Right on target as always Dr DeRuvo. I’ve downloaded a good number of your books, looking forward to digging into them while I spend my next week or two in the hospital.

    • 9. modres  |  September 5, 2012 at 7:20 AM

      Thanks Michael.

      Sorry to hear you’ll be in the hospital – hopefully nothing too serious although being there for a week or two is not necessarily a good sign…keep me posted.

  • 10. Sherry  |  September 4, 2012 at 7:28 PM

    You aren’t holding your breath, I hope…
    Amen to your prayer for this to be the day of Obama’s salvation!~
