Obama – First Take the Log Out of Your Own Eye

In Matthew 7, Jesus taught about the danger of judging others without examining yourself first when He said:

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” Matt. 7:1-5

Obviously, President Obama does not know his Scripture very well for a professing Christian.

Over the weekend, he accused Congressional Republicans of placing politics ahead of the needs of a troubled nation. He tried to justify his statement by listing a number of economic proposals he made and then said:

“The only thing preventing these bills from being passed is the refusal of some folks in Congress to put country ahead of party,” and that some in Congress “would rather see their opponents lose than see America win, and that has to stop.”

Who was it at the onset of the debt talks who kept saying that they would not entertain any of the Republican proposals? When Speaker of the House John Boehner went back to re-write his debt proposal, who was saying they would not pass any part of it before they ever saw it? Who was it in the Senate who repeatedly said that no Republican proposal would be passed unless they incorporated some of the Democratic proposals? Who was putting Party before the good of the nation?

The answer is simple – Democrats Barack Obama and Harry Reid.

Mr. President, Oh your hypocrite! You better pay heed to what Christ said and first take the log out of your own eye before you can see to take the speck out of the Republican’s eyes.
