Are We Still Praying for the President?

Polls indicate that most Americans don't trust our chief governmental leader right now. He's pushed through an unpopular piece of legislation with potentially damaging effects and its rollout has been an all out blooper reel. At times, he seems unbending and arrogant - unfazed by the barrage of criticism leveled his way. But we know better, don't we? Any of us, in his shoes, would be dying on the inside. Our family life would be battered by the side effects of a Dad whom …

What Religion is President Obama?

According to his testimony, he's a Christian. Does that mean that I believe 100% that he's born again and destined for eternity in heaven? I can be no more sure of that than I could for anyone else on the planet. God alone judges matters of souls and eternity. But when I'm asking someone for a record of their salvation, or what it means to be saved, here is what I'm looking for: An understanding that Jesus is the eternal Son of God and not merely human. An embracing …

Just What Christianity Doesn’t Need – Prayers Like This!

Pastor Steve Anderson prays regularly for President Obama's death. I really don't even have to write this short post... but I will. Let me jump ahead of your thinking and say loud and clear - Mr. Anderson does not represent me. Christians should have a clear moral voice and should certainly stand up for the principles of absolute truth as revealed in God's Word. We've definitely had the weakness of watering down our doctrine and losing our saltiness at times. Nonetheless, …

Martin Luther King, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Roe v. Wade, and the Sanctity of Human Life

I primarily wanted to comment on the significance of these three days. Sunday - Sanctity of human life Sunday, a rememberance of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Monday - Martin Luther King, Jr. day, a celebration of tremendous advances in civil rights at tremendous costs. Tuesday - Our farewell to George W. Bush and our welcoming of Barack Obama. My thoughts... (random, but worth hearing, or at least worth saying) …

Al Mohler Speaks: America Has Chosen a President

I've been experiencing a whirlwind of emotions in the last twenty-four hours. Even before Karl Rove said it around lunchtime, it was obvious who our next President would be. I listened to the speeches of both McCain and Obama, then went to bed. I went right to sleep. Why? Well, I was tired! And, I know Who is ultimately in charge. This morning I have struggled to articulate my own feelings about the situation, which is why I want to encourage you to read Al Mohler's post …

Welcome President Obama – My New President

Barack Obama has been declared, at this point, President-elect of the United States. My reaction? Welcome. I didn't choose him, but God did. I could not and did not vote for him because of some serious values-clashes. But now, It's time for us to prayerfully support the man God has chosen for this position. Let's be obedient to 1 Timothy 2:1-2 and undergird him in prayer daily. God has granted us this man as President in His sovereign wisdom. We may agree or not, but "the …

The bill would have reversed previous policies set by the Bush Administration which limited embryonic stem cell research only to existing lines of embryos. President Bush was unequivocal that every embryo is a precious life, created with dignity.Interestingly, there were people present in the crowd whose lives testified to the effects of funding the …
