I’ve often heard people say that America deserves better leadership than Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. Sixty years ago I would agree with that statement, but today I would totally disagree with the statement that America deserves better and would say that we have the leadership we deserve.
Once our nation turned away from God fifty years ago, we also gave up our right to deserve better than Obama or Clinton. Oh we still believe we deserve better, but in reality, America today is no different than Sodom, Gomorrah, ancient Rome or Israel of old when they turned away from God and look what happened to all of them. God destroyed them or sent them into captivity.
When America turned away from God, we also turned away from the only source of absolute truth. It was replaced by the lying and deceiving lips of men. Without absolute truth, America deserves leaders who lie to the people. Obama and Clinton are the penultimate of liars within American politics.
Obama has lied about his birth certificate, Selective Service Card, Social Security Number, Obamacare, immigration, Fast and Furious, IRS targeting, Benghazi, immigration and his alleged Christian faith. Likewise, Clinton lied about many things from the time she was First Lady to the present. She lied about Benghazi and worst yet she lied to the parents of those killed at Benghazi.
When America turned away from God, we also turned away from the biblical values of marriage and sex. Obama continues to push his agenda of gay rights in the military, in business, in marriage and even in our public schools. As Secretary of State, Clinton endorsed United Nations efforts to openly allow sexual activity among minors including providing them with condoms and access to abortion without parental knowledge or consent.
When America turned away from God, our leaders turned to other religions. Barack Hussein Obama walks, talks and acts more like a Muslim than a Christian. There is evidence that he came to the United States to attend college as a Muslim from a foreign country. His brother is an active Muslim that works with organizations that condone Muslim terrorism. Have you ever wondered why Obama has banned the use of the term ‘Muslim terrorist?’
While serving as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used a Muslim with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood as her closest aide and confidant. Huma Abedin’s mother is a ranking member of the Muslim Sisterhood, the female counterpart of the Muslim Brotherhood.
When America turned away from God, we also turned away from believing in the sanctity of life. Obama and Clinton are loud advocates for abortion. They both strongly support Obamacare which has provisions making it much harder and unaffordable for many people to receive the medical treatment they need for their illnesses and conditions. I can’t say that this will lead to the earlier deaths of some people, but strongly suggests that might happen. Obama and Clinton care more for their political agendas than they do for the American people.
Romans 1:18-23 states:
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.”
In the following verses, we are told:
“Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,” Romans 1:24
“For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions.” Romans 1:26
“And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.” Romans 1:28
This is why I firmly believe that America rightfully deserves leaders like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and will continue to deserve such leadership until America follows the exhortation that God gave Solomon in 2 Chronicles 7:14 –
“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
Then and only then will America deserve better leaders than Obama and Clinton!
