(Acts 17:26,27, Rom. 10:11-13)
What kind of pastor condones the sin of homosexuality, killing babies, and
preaches a gospel of racial division? The pastor for 20 years and spiritual
mentor of Democratic Presidential candidate B. Hussein Obama! I found it
amusing the past few days that all of the news media is focusing on the
racially divisive and anti-American rhetoric of Dr. Jeremiah Wright, who for
over 3 decades was the Senior Pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ
in Chicago, Illinois.
For those who have been reading the Daily Devotional and/or watching the
Liveprayer television program, I have told you about Dr. Wright for many
years now, since he pastors the church Oprah called home and Senator Obama
has been part of for the past 2 decades.
Dr. Wright not only married Senator Obama and his wife and christened their
2 children, but he has also been the spiritual mentor to the Senator and
helped shape his theological beliefs. He has been prominent in the news the
past few days because the public has been horrified after being exposed to
his racist and anti-American views that he has espoused for over 30 years in
In trying to do damage control Friday, Senator Obama ended any affiliation
Dr. Wright had with his Presidential campaign and the Senator went on
numerous news programs stating that he was not aware Dr. Wright held these
views. B. Hussein Obama is a liar!
As many of you know, I started my ministry in the city of Chicago in 1992.
Two of the members of my Board of Directors who have been with me since day
one, are both black pastors of churches on the south side of Chicago. I
have had the joy and privilege to preach in several dozen black churches in
the Chicagoland area in the early days of my ministry. Anyone who has had
ANY dealing with the churches in Chicago know who Dr. Jeremiah Wright is and
that he preaches a gospel of black separatism with anti-American views.
In theological circles it is known as "black liberation theology," a
perverse theology originally taught by James Cone that seeks to contribute
to the liberation of black people from the perceived racism in the country
and in Christianity.
Please hear me very clear. Black liberation theology is a perverse view of
the Scriptures and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a radical view held by
a very small minority of black pastors. This is NOT representative of the
black church or the overwhelming majority of black pastors who preach and
teach the true Gospel of Jesus Christ without looking at it thru the lens of
color. Every black pastor I know condemns Dr. Wright and this perverse
Sadly, to the non-churched masses and to white Americans who have little or
no exposure to the black church, seeing and hearing Dr. Wright's radical
views of the world and the Scriptures, will cause them to assume this is the
position held by all black churches. Again, Dr. Wright is in a very small
minority of pastors who hold to these perverted views and this is NOT
representative of the black church or Christians who happen to be black.
Having said that, let me reiterate that B. Hussein Obama is a liar when he
says he was not aware of these beliefs held by his pastor. That is
impossible since everyone in Chicago knows about Dr. Wright and his radical
and racially divisive theology. His teachings attracted many young,
upwardly mobile, successful blacks who agree with his views on race and
social issues. They joined his church not only the spiritual experience,
but for the networking opportunities it provided.
It was the perfect church home for Senator Obama who had no Christian
background or Biblical upbringing, and was a rising star in the Daley
political machine in Chicago, It was the perfect church home and message
for Senator Obama who was dealing with the social and economic challenges of
blacks on the south side of Chicago early in his political career.
The United Church of Christ is a predominantly white and very liberal
denomination that supports and condones sins like homosexuality and women
killing their babies. Like many liberal denominations, it focuses on the
"social gospel," dealing with the economically poor rather than the
spiritually poor. These types of churches focus on the financially down and
out and needy, using the parts of the Bible that speak to helping those who
are less fortunate, while brushing over the passages that speak to living a
life holy and acceptable to God in accordance with His Word.
This is where Senator Obama comes up with the laughable notion that the
Sermon on the Mount teaches homosexuality is an acceptable choice as he
recently stated in the news. In his bid for the White House, B. Hussein
Obama has received great support from those in the gay and lesbian community
since he will champion their desire to make gay marriage legal in all 50
states and to break down all barriers to gay adoption, as well as other
issues favorable to giving those who choose to commit the sin of
homosexuality special rights.
Senator Obama also supports the legalizes slaughter of babies. He has been
100% consistent in his political career both in the Illinois Senate and the
United States Senate, to support the legalized practice of infanticide. I
wonder how he can go home at night, look at his two precious little girls,
yet vote to support the legalized murder of babies. Again, this is all in
line with the liberal theology and social gospel teachings of his pastor and
church for the past 20 years.
I say that any "pastor" and any "church" that supports slaughtering babies
should never be referred to with those names. How can you call yourself a
pastor, how can a church call itself a church, how can a person honestly
call themselves a follower of Jesus Christ, and support a woman making the
decision to kill her baby? That is inconsistent with the teachings of
Christ and the Bible, and even most hard hearted heathens who deny the
existence of God understands that it is murder!
I love you and care about you so much. My guess is that Senator Obama will
soon leave Trinity UCC to appease his political detractors. The fact is, he
is 20 years too late. He, like ALL who are part of that church and most who
are not part of Trinity, knew of the perverse theology and racist,
anti-American views of Dr. Jeremiah Wright. This is not revelation to
anyone in Chicago. I have told you about Dr. Wright and that church for
many years now.
Senator Obama has to make the same decision we all have to make. It was
Jesus who said you can't serve two masters. Is our master Jesus or do we
serve another master? If Jesus is his master, Senator Obama needs to
denounce the sin of homosexuality and take a stand for life. If politics is
his master, he will continue to support these sins.
At some point, each person has to decide if you love Jesus or if you love
this world. We make that decision many times throughout the day when we
choose to obey God or disobey Him. If we say we love the Lord, we will obey
Him. If we say we love the Lord and disobey Him, we obviously don't love
Him enough since it was Jesus who said, "If you love Me, you will obey Me."
I pray today that Senator Obama will love Jesus enough to obey Him, and I
pray that you and I will love Him enough to obey Him.
