What effect does Barack Obama have on moral issues?


The United States is apparently not a major player in world affairs during the end-times. What will happen to our country in the next few years that will remove us from our present role as the world's only superpower? One major factor is the choice of the American people of its leaders, and the appointment by those leaders of key positions. Those leaders could nudge us toward socialism and adoption of a one-world government structure. This could set the scene for a the despotic antichrist world ruler.

This section continues to track President Obama's beliefs and policies about moral issues, such as the sanctity of life, and traditional marriage. It also takes note of his understanding of Christian principles, biblical foundations of our government, honesty and transparency in government, attitudes and actions toward terrorists, reaction to persecution of Christians, and loyalty to Israel.

Read my 2015 blog on the subject of "Obama's Morality." Here is the conclusion of that article:

We still pray for him, and promise to do so more diligently. Most of all, we are praying for a spiritual revival in America for the sake of our young people. Wouldn’t it be great if the President would have a change of heart, and be part of such an awakening? With God all things are possible!

Some Scriptures to keep in mind are:

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.” – Isaiah 5:20

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” - Proverbs 14:34

"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. - 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Sept. 19, 2015 -

President Obama, in a historic first for the Pentagon, has chosen to nominate Eric Fanning to lead the Army, a move that would makehim the first openly gay civilian secretary of one of the military services.

In recent years the Army has cut about 80,000 soldiers and plans to cut 40,000 more over the next few years.At that point it will be the smallest it has been in the post-World War II era.

Significance of Obama and Moral Issues

Aug. 18, 2015
RonGraff.jpg - 6668 BytesPLEASE, MR. PRESIDENT
An Open Letter to the President

It is with a mixture of the greatest respect for the office you hold, and a profound disappointment with some of the decisions you have made, that I must pleadfor you to face the realities of the course you are taking with Iran, the self-proclaimed enemy of the United States and Israel.

I don’t have any illusions that you will actually read this letter, but I hope that if you did, I would have the courage to stand face to face with you—forthe sake of my own children and grandchildren, and for the multitude of others who love our country and God’s Chosen People in Israel.

As President of the United States, you are the most powerful person in the world. But there are untold millions of people who follow the most PowerfulPerson in the Universe: Jesus Christ. We are not afraid that Christianity will fail, because Jesus promised, “I will build my church and the gates of Hadeswill not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18)

However, we do fear for the future of our country, which was founded on Christian principles. God’s blessing of nations is based on the Abrahamic Covenant.

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you. – Genesis 12:3

Most Americans still believe that God has blessed America. But if we turn our back on Israel, which was miraculously reborn in 1948 in fulfillment of prophecy(Ezekiel 36 and 37), we know we cannot expect the continued divine assistance and protection that we have enjoyed for so long.

World War II could have been avoided if Great Britain’s Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, had not made a deal in 1938 with Hitler, called the Munich Agreement. He thought that he had defused the problem, but it only allowed Hitler to continue his preparations for a war that cost more than 50 million lives.

Many prominent observers of today’s dangerous world are warning you that this deal with Iran will lead to a nuclear holocaust—the very thing you are trying to avoid. Numerous military experts oppose this agreement, and it is almost certain that Congress, including many Democrats, will vote their disapproval of the plan. But you have already said you will veto any such congressional action.

It is my earnest prayer that you will reconsider your position, and that your real legacy will be your courage in stopping the aggression of our greatest enemy.

Obama 'a judgment of God' on America, says Land

Aug. 5, 2015 - Because President Obama went out of his way during his visit to Kenya to press leaders to accept the homosexuallifestyle and same-sex "marriage," Dr. Richard Land, President of Southern Evangelical Seminary said,

"In my opinion, President Obama being president of the United States is in itself a judgment of God on the United States –that a God who disposes and proposes has allowed him to become president because of our moral profligacy."

Obama blocks Iraqi nun from describing Christian persecution

May 2, 2015 - Sister Diana Momeka is a Catholic Nun and a leading representative of the Nineveh Christians who have been killed and deported by ISIS. She was part of a delegation coming from Iraq to Washington to testify about the ISIS catastrophe. She was the only Christian in the group, and the only one whose visa was denied by the State Department.

Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, writes an op-ed in the National Review explaining that the U.S. Government is claiming that Sister Diana ...

... “could be falsely asserting that she intends to visit Washington when secretly she could be ... at risk for claiming political asylum, and the U.S. seems determined to deny ISIS’s Christian victims that status.”

Obama's Faith: Could It Be a Political Tool to Silence Christians?

Apr. 15, 2014 - During the Easter season United Kingdom's Prime Minister, David Cameron said,

"We should feel proud to say, 'This is a Christian country.' Yes, we're a nation that embraces, welcomes and accepts all faiths and none, but we are still a Christian country."

Cameron had the courage to make his statement even though the UK has a large anti-Christian Muslim population.

By contrast, President Obama is on record saying "we are no longer a Christian nation," and will not blame terrorism on Islamic beliefs.

US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel's Nuclear Program

Mar. 25, 2015 - Last month the Pentagon quietly declassified portions of a 1987 document called "Critical Technological Assessmentin Israel and NATO Nations." By doing so, it revealed details about Israel's nuclear program that have never been made public.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister BinyaminNetanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu's March 3 address in Congress.

The information breaks the silent agreement between the U.S. and Israel not to comment on Israel's nuclear status. Making the situation even moresuspicious, the document kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified.

Giuliani doubles down: Obama doesn't love America

Feb. 21, 2015 - Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been criticized by many for saying he doesn't think President Obama loves America. When asked by Fox host Megan Kelly if he wanted to apologize for the remark, he made an even stronger statement. He said

"All that I've heard of him, he apologizes for America, he criticizes America, he talks about the Crusades and how the Christians were barbarians – leaves out the second half of the sentence, that the Muslims were barbarians also."

To become UN Sec General Obama must 'Solve' the Existence of Israel

Feb. 11, 2015 - Commentator James Lewis gives his reasons for believing that President Obama's goal is beyond his presidency--becomingthe United Nations Secretary General. His Marxist ideals will appeal to enough nations that he probably will have a chance to rule the world fromthat position.

Lewis says that this ambition would explain his actions: favoritism for Muslims, surrender to Iran's nukes, and tension with Egyptian President El Sisi.It would also explain his disdain for Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, who is about to make a personal appeal to the Congress of the United States to stopIran's nuclear threat.

Obama has personally abused and threatened Benjamin Netanyahu from the beginning of this administration. It hasn’t worked. Netanyahu is aman of conviction, and he’s faced tougher enemies on the battlefield than the biggest narcissist in the world.
Lewis finishes his editorial by saying that if he is right, after Netanyahu speaks to congress [on March 3rd], we can expect "Obama’s famous rage to explode in public."

Why Our President Chose to Insult Christianity and Excuse Militant Islam at the National Prayer Breakfast - Rush Limbaugh

Editor's Note: In our book, The Church in Prophecy and History: Revelation Commentary - Chapters 1 - 3 , the history of the Crusades and Inquisitions are examined. The Crusades were an attempt to regain possession of the Holy Land which had been brutally conquered by Muslim invaders, along with most of the rest of the Middle East. And the Inquisitions, which were admittedly totally wrong, were conducted by the Catholic Church when they were at their lowest ebb spiritually. Their practices during this phase of history were not compatible with the biblical view of Christianity, and they led to the Reformation--a return to true Christian faith.

Dershowitz: Obama Fails to Recognize Iran Is Greatest Threat to World

Feb. 2, 2015 - Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz sounds the alarm that President Obama is determined to make a big mistake in negotiations with Iran about their nuclear program. He says:
"After a few years, the number has not been explicitly stated, they can go on and do whatever they please. This is a very bad deal, a bad deal for the United States, a bad deal for the international community."
He compares the President's lack of concern about this danger with the attitude and decisions of Britain's Neville Chamberlain, who waited too long to recognize the folly of appeasing Hitler.
