Dr. Michael Youssef: President Obama’s Brand of “Christianity” Will Cause God’s Judgment to be Poured Out

President Obama

President Obama

by Michael Youssef 

For twenty years, Mr. Obama drank from a particular brand of religion—Liberal Christianity. To be sure, most Bible-believing Christians would not consider that brand to be Christianity at all. But liberal Christians would consider their brand to actually be the enlightened one.

Over time, Liberal Christianity has developed a humanistic understanding of what the Christian faith is about. They claim that Christians who still believe the Bible is God’s perfect self-revelation are stuck back in the 1st century. Society has evolved, they say. And because society has evolved, God must be evolving also. After all, why else would He allow such change to occur?

Thus, people who take the Bible as the absolute truth for all time are branded as rigid and unenlightened.

Not surprisingly, such liberal thinkers have similar views about the U.S. Constitution. They claim that our founders never intended for the Constitution to be absolute for all time; it was only relevant for their time period. Therefore, it ought to be modified or done away with.

Extreme arrogance is at the core of that thinking—whether it be about the Constitution or the Bible. Pride drives them to consider their ideas to be better than the founders, or better than the Spirit-directed writers of the Bible. Although no one can judge their motives, Jesus did say, “You know a tree by its fruit.”

From their “elite” perch, they refuse to accept the biblical claim of absolute truth, affording them the “permission” they need to declare what is right or wrong—not what God declares.

So back to Mr. Obama. If he decides that he has evolved his thoughts on homosexual marriage and is now okay with it, God must be cool with it too. After all, God is also evolving.

And if he decides that smoking marijuana is no worse than smoking or drinking alcohol, then God must be okay with that as well.

According to their counter-biblical thinking, God permits those things to happen because He is “progressive” also like them. He is changeable.

But God doesn’t evolve; instead he is patient and long-suffering. Liberal Christians ignore or reject this core of biblical Christianity: God is patient and long-suffering with people who ignore His Word because He deeply desires that they see their insolence for what it is and repent of it.

However, that patience comes with a warning. If it does not lead to repentance, then judgment will most surely follow. The judgment that such people mock will be poured out with vengeance later.

That judgment is clearly spelled out in Scripture. Hence, people who believe the Word is outdated are taking a big gamble. Sadly, although they mistake God’s patience for a reluctance to judge, that judgment will surely come. They will surely lose their gamble.

That just about covers the man and his religion or lack of it. BK you got it right again. I find it sad but 100% true. God has always been the same, never changing and he never will (not even for Obama).But one thing is certain God is in charge and that makes this world more bearable.No matter how much Obama thinks he is number 1 , he will have to face someone a lot higher up than he is someday.

Wait, the Bible is against marijuana? But tobacco and alcohol are okay? What? Or are they all bad, but marijuana is worse? Someone please point me to these verses.
