Today, President Obama delivered remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast.  Two of the most interesting statements include:

“Our concern should not be whether God is on our side, but whether we are on God’s side”

and

“Killing the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will.  In fact, it is the ultimate betrayal of God’s will.”

Based upon the President’s policies and “evolving” opinions on social issues, the remarks come across as hypocritical.

“Our concern should not be whether God is on our side, but whether we are on God’s side”

The statement rings with truth, but decisions rendered by the President seem to contradict his purported view.  For instance, during his 2004 Senate campaign, Obama said as a Christian he believed marriage should be between a man and a woman, although he supported civil unions for gay couples.  In May of 2012 he backpedaled.  He changed his mind on gay marriage, saying he was influenced in part by his daughters and wife Michelle.  Sadly, he refutes his own statement delivered in this morning’s address.  God determines right and wrong….good and bad…holy and sinful.  In every case in both the Old and New Testament when God addresses the homosexual lifestyle, the word “abomination” or “penalty” appears in the same sentence.  Obviously on this sentiment, the President failed to seek God’s heart.

“Killing the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will.  In fact, it is the ultimate betrayal of God’s will.” 

This statement pertained to violent acts of terrorism, but one can’t help but relate this comment to the most innocent of our society, the unborn.

President Obama parrots the Liberal stance on abortion,

“Safe, legal, and rare,”

but in the same breath avidly champions the right of a woman to abort her baby.  According to Lifenews.com,

“As an Illinois state senator, Obama was so supportive of late-term abortions, he resisted efforts to protect unborn children born alive after failed abortion procedures.”

Imagine a baby surviving the probing surgical tools of an abortionist.  Once delivered, writhing in pain, clinging to life, the infant is ignored by medical personnel with a sworn duty to save life at all costs.  Sound inhumane?  Our President voted for that barbaric scenario, not once but three times.  Yes, Mr. President, I agree with your supposition,

“Killing the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will.  In fact, it is the ultimate betrayal of God’s will….”

But do you?

What God labeled as sin in the Bible, remains sin today.  Sadly, our culture hurtles toward self-destruction because of an “everyone did what was right in his own eyes” ideology.  Sadly, the President mirrors this philosophy.  In a 2004 interview, a reporter asked the President about his definition of sin.  He responded,

“Being out of alignment with my values.”

Houston, we have a problem.

Oftentimes mankind’s verdict on sin fails to line up with God’s Word.  If we make the rules, we justify our behaviors by saying,

“This is right for me.”

Cultural relativism might endear a world leader to an ever changing and diverse population, but does little to impress a holy God.
