Hi Jason,

I agree totally with your points about the law of God. But your slander of President Obama is totally unwarranted. The difference between Obama and Mao is that the overwhelming majority of your countrymen voted him into power. No one ever voted Mao into power. Why did the overwhelming majority of Americans vote Obama into power? Because the previous Republican administration was corrupt and incompentent - perhaps even more so than many third world countries. They clearly governed for the rich only, lowering taxes for them whilst leaving the poor to carry the burden of paying for their extravagant expenditure. They put no restriction on the behavior of the rich, leaving their greed to rule them and thus creating a monumental financial crisis that has left the poor (not the rich) jobless (And you want to label Obama a bad judge and not Bush and his cronies? C'mon!). What we saw was oppression of the poor. And naturally, when these people got to vote, they ousted the pathetic Republican administration.

What does James say about those who would oppress the poor? What does the Bible say over and over about those who would oppress the poor? Perhaps your political affiliations are blinding you to the injustice that occurred during the previous administration. No one is saying that Obama is perfect or that everything he has done is right, but you seriously have some nerve to put him into the same category as Stalin and Mao - especially given the extreme incompentence and corruption that preceded him.

You have problem paying taxes (i.e. redistribution of wealth). Good. So did the Pharisees. What was Jesus' response? "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s".

The problem with many US Christians is that when the government you like is in power, then everyone is to accept their aurthority. But when there is a government that you don't like in power, all of a sudden all of Paul's instruction to submit yourself to the chosen government of God is thrown out the window. You don't like Obama.... boo hoo. Suck it up then. Don't go around making false comparisons between him and Stalin. Perhaps you should look at the monumental failures of the party you support first and look at the reasons why Americans put them to the sword

Come on exegesis. Don't be so naive. There's not a dimes worth of difference between the left and right. They are the left and right wings of the same bird of prey.

That's why nothing ever changes. Obama promised not to hire lobbyists, but that's all he's hired. Indeed he kept many of Bush's people.

To see the truth of the matter, google the words "The Obama Deception" and watch the video with more than 6.5 million views.
