“The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the afflicted, to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, release to the prisoners, . . .”
How truly blessed are we to be given all these great things from Barack Obama who has healed our nation. We have the savior who has been anointed by the liberal media to bring good tidings to the poor, comfort the conflicted, free the prisoners, and end wars. Hasn’t he done that? He’s brought universal health care to the poor, defended the rights of persecuted Muslims, freed jihadi prisoners from GITMO, and ended the war in Iraq.
Although that’s not exactly the case in some of these. That’s what the liberal media want us to think. By now you must know I was being very sarcastic about the praises of President Obama. It should be noted that while the Affordable Health Care Act has been signed, many have lost their health care as a result of the new law. It should be noted these Muslims being “persecuted” are not actually being persecuted at least not by Christians. Those jihadi GITMO detainees he freed also became re-radicalized and are fighting alongside ISIS, Al-Qaeda and other jihadi groups. Yet, many are still convinced this administration has done nothing but good things. Whenever something bad happens, it’s somebody else’s fault; whenever something good happens, it’s always Obama’s doing personally. This is what we call a personality cult. Crowds cheer on and faint at the sound of Obama’s voice; women swoon in his very presence; men, women and children cry in joy as they hear his speeches. It all sounds good and flowery, but the reality is very different from what he has said and many are still in denial about the stark contrast between reality and the fantasy Obama’s fans have created in their heads. This is not so much a criticism of Obama himself as it is of those who obstinately support him; it is because of them that he was elected in the first place. God warns, “I the Lord, this is my name: I will not give my glory to another, nor my praise to graven things” (Isaias 42:8).
