Obama Is Another Lincoln Out of Illinois? Surely You Jest!

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal….." --- opening statement of the Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln

“Well the first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.” --– statement by presidential candidate Barack Obama in a speech to a Planned Parenthood group.

It was said recently on a cable news network that Barack Obama is to be compared to Abraham Lincoln. Earlier statements indicated that even Obama wants to be viewed as a kind of 2nd Lincoln to come out of the state of Illinois. It has been noted that both practiced law and that both came from the state of Illinois, although B. O. is not native born to the state – in fact there are questions as to where this guy really was born.

To compare Barack Obama to Abraham Lincoln and attempt to practically make them identical twins in their political philosophy is to take a plunge deep into a fantasy land of fairy tales, make believe and where Puff the Magic Dragon rules on a throne!

If you can make

  • A toadstool the same as a Portobello mushroom….

  • A bowl of sewage from a citizen’s septic tank the same as a steaming bowl of chicken noodle soup….

  • A teaspoon of Pennzoil the same as a teaspoon of Robitussin Cough Syrup….

  • A fifth of Jack Daniels the same as a liter of Coca Cola……

  • A bottle full of d-CON pellets the same as a bottle full of Vitamin C tablets…

  • A room full of carbon monoxide the same as a room full of oxygen …..

  • Pitch black midnight the same as bright daylight on a cloudless day at high noon...

then, miracle of miracles, Obama and Lincoln are of the same mold – 2 peas out of the same pod – indeed, they are twins!

However, being the kind of man he was, it is safe to assume that Abraham Lincoln would never have put his imprimatur on a national policy which destroys about 25,000 unborn future citizens a week throughout the year. But Barack Obama does and will see that this continues to take place unhindered by placing his signature on the Freedom of Choice Act.

It is also clear that Lincoln would not have approved a hedonistic view of life adopted by not a few U.S. citizens which says I can have a sexual romp in bed or somewhere else and if I make a baby in the process then I can choose to kill and dispose of it because my president says its OK to do so – it’s my “constitutional right" and he has gone on record that my right to murder my unborn child will remain unchanged!

The sharp contrast between Obama and Lincoln is seen in Lincoln's opening statement of his Gettysburg Address -- "...that all men are created equal." God does the creating of individuals in the womb -- He said so in Jeremiah 1:4,5. Our historic documents stress at one point that all should have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

But Obama draws a line on this -- according to him there are thousands that are not created equal and they DO NOT have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness! His past actions on the issue of human life and planned future action indicate indeed that he is as different from Abraham Lincoln as night is from day, or any of the other contrasts previously mentioned above.

It is a slap to the face and a knee in the groin to Abraham Lincoln to say that B. Hussein Obama is another Lincoln from the state of Illinois.

Finally, just remember that Illinois politics in Lincoln's day did not smell the same as it does today either!

Moreover Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides his sin with which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the LORD. --- 2 Kings 21:16

The punishment of the arrogance of the U.S.

"And with a claimed strong voice, saying," Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great room and has become the den of demons and evil spirit throughout, and shelter for all unclean and hateful bird.
Because all nations have drunk the wine of the wrath of fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury. "(Revelation 18,2-3)

During these last several weeks have been negative news to shake the United States.
The material that caused the disaster Hurricane "Ike" in Texas, the collision of two trains occurred in Los Angeles where 10 people died, the financial crisis that is leading to bankruptcy for large companies like Leman Brothers and others, the crisis that still inmobibliaria endures, high inflation and mismanagement of course that President Bush has given the nation, all these things could be classed as "shock" the pride of the American people used to live in waste and wantonness.
And if they join the thousands who died from the attack on the twin towers, or more than a thousand people died from Hurricane Katrina, or the moral degradation that is coming to American society. All this evidence lugubre the scenario that today the United States.
The next president to be elected may not change much this negative reality.
But the Evangelical Church in the United States can not do something to change this, but even when these churches seem more concerned about their property and political alliances that change the poor spiritual reality in the United States.
This nation for many years has shown hostility to Latino immigrants who enter the country, and warfare with other Arab countries especially.
The administration of President Bush is leading the U.S. confrontation with the world, and probably also look to do with God.
The methods used by the anti-American government and also its people's traditional generosity desdicen previously demonstrated the United States, but now seems to show much pride and arrogance.
Of course one can not generalize to all people.
However, the beating that this nation is experiencing both economic and climatic are a clear warning from God that the United States correcting their wrong policies that have for the world.
Otherwise it is likely that in a short time will get from the trial of God over this nation as it sobrevinieron to other countries such as China or Burma.
The true Christian churches in this country should check the distance in a very clear and with more strength to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to avoid being influenced by the prevailing darkness in this nation. A dark and that is affecting many countries.
It is time we hear the voice from heaven speaks to our conscience by saying: "Come out of her, my people, so do not be partakers of her sins, and receive of her plagues, for her sins have reached to the sky, and God has remembered her iniquities. "(Revelation 18,4-5)

Thanks for the message -- perhaps another way of saying it is this -- Almighty God is calling for repentance, but who is listening? Even among rofessed "evangelicals" there seems to be more concern about "not offending" lest we lose favor with someone or certain groups!
