For the second time during the presidential campaign, a group of African-American ministers in North Carolina has criticized Franklin Graham for challenging the spiritual beliefs of President Barack Obama, accusing the evangelist Monday of promoting a narrow form of Christianity that supports a politically conservative point of view. Meeting in Charlotte, the group read an open letter to Graham that comes in response to a series of full-page ads that bear a photograph of his father, Billy Graham, and ask voters to elect candidates who support “biblical principles.” In comments to the
Franklin Graham is a really good person. He heads up Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child charities. These do alot of good work around the world including gift boxes to kids who would probably never get a gift in their life if not from OCC. Last year over 8 million boxes were given out to over 100 nations. Many of the gift boxes go to Africa. I dare say Franklin's charities do more for Africa then the NCAAP. They ought to stop critizing him and start helping.
Any person who supports abortion and homosexual unions is not a Christian. That doesn't mean that you hate them, it just means that they have said the Bible and God are in error. Franklin Graham is correct.
Obama is not a believer in Christ. Therefore he is not a Christian. Period.
Jesus stated in no uncertain terms that the tree is known for the fruit that it bears. Obama is completely self-serving, walks all over other people, is capable of lying with a completely straight face, sees no wrong in killing babies who are seconds from being fully delivered, and seems to be more comfortable and supportive of Islam than Christianity.
Obama can call himself a Christian all he wants. Christianity is not endowed upon someone through merely claiming to be one. Christianity is gifted upon someone who recognizes their absolute inability to please God who is also willing to throw themselves at the feet of the Almighty, with a broken heart, and receive forgiveness.
Obama's life simply does not indicate that he is anything other than arrogant and self-serving. He is not serving others. He is not in any way that I can see, a humble man.
John Bunyan ('Pilgrim's Progress') had a nice way of putting it. There are professors of faith. Then, there are possessors of faith. Obama is a weak professor, at best. He is certainly not a possessor of faith in Christ.
Guess they have not or choose not to read the same Bible we do! God's Word is true and He will stand by it.
Lead US not into temptation!
Deliver US from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory! Amen!
God's Word is enough for me.
When these so-called ministers stand before God on Judgment Day, they will be held accountable to Him, not Obama! What do they want to hear - Welcome, good and faithful servant or depart from Me, for I "never" knew you! This is their choice as well as ours.
God is faithful to His Word, Jesus, who is the Righteouness Of His Father, sent to "deliver" man from from their sins.
By Faith we come, just as we are, receive His gift of Love/Mercy/Grace.
He will stand before Satan for US, for the battle is His, not ours!
America is finally waking up from a nightmare called Obama!
Matthew 7:13-14 Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and few there be that find it.
And that, brothers of the NAACP, is what the Bible says. It's a shame that you guys throw a hissy fit at an ad that just says 'vote for the candidates who support Biblical principles.'
Unlike these clueless "minsters," I agree with the man who advocates the narrow way. "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Mt.7:13-14
I criticize the NAACP for promoting a liberal, narrow form of anti-Christ support of barack hussein obama. I think the big dude in the middle is/was involved in the Wake county school busing fight, and I think he got arrested for acting out at a school board meeting. He is no minister; he's just another race hustler in the order of Sharpton Jackson.
The NAACP is upset that Graham is urging people to vote for someone who shares his values. They know Obama has none. The double standard here is ridiculous. I guess they support abortion and gay marriage as long as a black president supports it. By the way what God do they worship?
"...accusing the evangelist Monday of promoting a narrow form of Christianity that supports a politically conservative point of view." Meanwhile these NAACP cry babies promote a viewpoint that has no resemblance at all to Christianity.
Religious theology directed by the Bible is not a 'living document' as the Libs appear to be making it out to be. There is little option for man's opinion on how to interpret or enact scripture, it is quite explicit.
SO this is nothing more than the Libs perverting religion to their own purposes...and that is to abolish all of it.
The poor we have always, and God could feed all the hungry and cure the sick if he wished, as we witnessed with the coming of Jesus Christ. What we cannot change are spiritual truths, such as God made them male and female, in the beginning, and they are joined together as one flesh in marriage. God doesn't even approve of divorce, except for the hardness of our hearts. Even heathens feed the poor and care for the sick. Even demons believe in God. It doesn't make them Christian... only to do the will of God and follow his commandments.
The NAACP have sold their Souls to the Devil...for political power! Playing the "Race card" in the Bride of Christ.... "Choose this day who you will serve"...,Joshua told the Children of Israel..but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord"...They are are now serving their "High Priest of Moloch"...Barry Soetoro...who never saw a baby that he didn't want to kill...even if it survives the Abortionists scalpel! After all, the Holy Trinity to Marxists is: Race, Gender and Class.....since 1917!
Raising concerns about consumer privacy, California´s health exchange has given insurance agents the names and contact information for tens of thousands of people who went online to check out coverage but didn´t ask to be contacted. The Covered California exchange said it started handing out this consumer information this week as part of a pilot program to help people enroll ahead of a Dec. 23 deadline to have health insurance in place by Jan. 1.State officials said they are only trying to help potential customers find insurance and sign up in time. But some insurance brokers and consumers who were
ST. PAUL, Minn. Jeff Ansorge once commanded a staff of 17 and made around $80,000 a year as executive chef at a posh downtown Minneapolis restaurant where a 24-ounce dry aged Porterhouse steak goes for $48. But he gave it all up to become the head cook of a Salvation Army soup kitchen, where the meals are free. Now he brings his culinary skills to bear making salmon, ribs and stews for the poor and homeless who come to The Salvation Army Eastside Corps Community Center in St. Paul. For the Thanksgiving meal that’s being served Wednesday, Ansorge planned a traditional
The National Park Service is not interested in coming up with plans to let states pay to keep parks open should another government shutdown occur, a service official testified late last week to a House subcommittee.Park Service Comptroller Bruce Sheaffer said a bill to require such planning for all 401 national parks could take too much time and money — a position that was blasted as “atrocious” by the subcommittee chairman. The Provide Access and Retain Continuity Act was one of two bills in response to the October shutdown of the federal government, when the closure of parks like the
They work until 11 at night, lug 40-pound garment bags throughout the city and get scolded for not adhering tape to mood boards correctly. And yet being a Condé Nast intern remains one of the most coveted, sought-after unpaid jobs in town.To an aspiring media-ite, a Condé internship is a stiletto stacked in prestige wrapped in promises of opportunity. It is a fancy incubator for future media power players: Fashion designer Whitney Port, author Lauren Conrad and beauty blogger Emily Weiss all got their start interning at the media mammoth. So you can imagine the surprise when, last month, Condé
The Obama administration plans to delay by a full month the open enrollment period for Obamacare´s second year, in a move that a Republican campaign strategist called ´nakedly political.´ According to Healthcare.gov, the Department of Health and Human Service´s official online portal for the Affordable Care Act, enrollment for 2015 is scheduled to begin on October 15, 2014 and end on December 7. But an HHS official said Thursday that the schedule has been bumped back, beginning on November 15, 2014 and ending on January 15, 2015. That timetable will ensure that the midterm elections come and go before the new
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina said Tuesday that it will raise rates as much as 24 percent on 2013 individual health insurance plans that are being extended next year. The increase is double the price inflation for the same health plans just a year ago, but many Blue Cross customers who have grumbled about rising costs in past years are cheering the news this time. The health plans in question were slated for elimination under the Affordable Care Act, the nation’s health care law, but Blue Cross said last week it would offer the plans next year. President
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says everyone should stop talking so much about the 2016 presidential race, because doing so hurts President Obama, who´s only a year into his second term. "In this sense, I feel badly for President Obama. He just won a year ago, and everybody´s like, ´So, who´s next?´" Christie said Monday night at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council. "There is work to be done in this country. And as we shove him out the door, we minimize his ability to be an effective executive. And we shouldn´t do that." Even as he urged people to focus
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
