President Obama’s use of government power to encourage the destruction of innocent life, enforce a sexual agenda and create a culture of political corruption at the highest levels of government has unleashed moral corruption unprecedented in American history.
Obama’s legacy will clearly show that he helped create and did more to undermine religious liberty than any other president in American history. History shows that when religious freedom is dismantled, it is a certainty that other liberties will be abolished next.
Obama’s rewriting of discrimination laws has legitimatized discrimination against anyone holding a Biblical view of marriage. The bottom line is that when the Federal government advances a political agenda opposite their Constitutional purpose of interpreting (not creating) laws, government decides what values its people can hold.
The Bible says, “When the righteous rule the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule the people mourn” (Prov. 29:2). This shows that good leadership promotes the well-being of its followers, but corrupt leadership leaves the nation in distress and tyranny. Our founding fathers realized that a republic divorced from moral and religious principles would destroy itself in crime, corruption; and without a concept of sin, tyranny is certain.
If there are no moral absolutes in our society, they cannot be expected in government. Without them in government, policies are based on raw power only. This leads to whoever is in power shapes the laws to serve them rather than protecting the Constitutional rights of its people.
We cannot allow ourselves to be swept up by the promotional campaigns of a godless society. This includes Obama’s tidal wave of corruption of doing away with the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which protected states that banned same-sex marriage, expanding legal protections to all same-sex couples and making LGBT central to his foreign policy. He even targeted conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status using the IRS.
Members of the Lord’s church must rebel at the corruption in our government and ask our new president to put things back in order by restoring moral and religious principles.
The broken-hearted weeping prophet summed up our dilemma in America, “Let uslie down in our shame, and let our confusion cover us: for we have sinned against Jehovah our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day; and we have not obeyed the voice of Jehovah our God” (Jeremiah 3:25).
Millions today, in our society, are walking in the darkness of spiritual apathy and defilement. Our shameful lives will conquer us unless the wickedness and corruption in government is not addressed. Without Christian values in government, we subject ourselves to devious, immoral leaders such as Obama who has brought shame to our nation under his administration. More evil was committed than we can count.
Elders, preachers and members must continue to speak out against the corruption going on in our society. Christ cannot be magnified in our life unless we put our approval on things that are right (Phil. 1:10, 20).
