Obama Tells Muslims and Atheists What They Want to Hear

Barack Hussein Obama has long been known for telling people what they want to hear. At Harvard Law,

People had a way of hearing what they wanted in Mr. Obama’s words. … According to Mr. Ogletree, students on each side of the debate thought he was endorsing their side. “Everyone was nodding, Oh, he agrees with me”.

Now, Obama is telling Muslims, atheists, and even those Christians who are Biblically illiterate, what they want to hear, so that all of those groups are nodding, “Oh, he agrees with me.”

To Muslims, he has confessed the words that convince them he is a Muslim.  The opening lines of the prayer, which Obama recited in Arabic with a first-rate accent, include the following words (translated to English):

Allah is The Greatest.
I bear witness that there is no deity except Allah.
I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.

It’s not hard to see why many Muslims believe Obama is a Muslim. 

Obama has also convinced many atheists, including the well-known atheist blogger Allahpundit, that, “He can’t be Muslim. As I’ve told you many times, my president is atheist.”

Now on to the Biblically illiterate Christians.  They naively believe that Obama is a Christian because he has confessed “I am a Christian” and “it means I believe in — that Jesus Christ died for my sins, and that I am redeemed through him.”  Do those words make him a Christian?  The Biblically illiterate Christians say yes.  But let’s look at what the Bible says (emphasis mine):

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:9

Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:3

The Bible says that to be saved you must confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and that no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. How important is it to confess “Jesus is Lord”? Your very salvation depends on it:

Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 10:32-33

Barack Hussein Obama has never confessed before men, “Jesus is Lord”.  But Barack Hussein Obama has confessed that he believes a different concept of salvation:

My individual salvation depends on our collective salvation.

As I’ve pointed out previously, the New King James version of the Bible mentions the word “salvation161 times, but it NEVER mentions the word “collective“.

Anyone who is Biblically literate must realize that Barack Hussein Obama’s concept of salvation is not Biblically based.  Obama has expressed his belief in “collective salvation” many times (Wesleyan Commencement Address, Xavier Commencement Address, and this shocking audio where the racist, socialist zealot Obama says he has to redistribute WHITE suburbias wealth for both his and our salvation).

It’s interesting to note that Obama didn’t mention the term “collective salvation” to Rick Warren, but he did manage to give a two-part answer, where the first part satisfied some Christians, and the second part re-iterated his “Social[ist] Gospel, Social[ist] Justice” worldview:

WARREN: Everybody’s got a world view, a Buddhist, a Baptist, a secularist, an atheist, everybody’s got a world view. I wrote or invited people who get newsletter to write in their questions. We have about 200,000 questions that came in. And I only have 500 in this section. So no matter how you answer these world view questions, somebody’s not going to like it, because we’re all different kinds of world views in America. But as — people want to know what your world view is. So as we go through this, these mine fields, let’s just kind of tick them off, the mine fields of America.

The first one is Christianity. Now, you’ve made no doubts about your faith in Jesus Christ. What does that mean to you? What does it mean to you to trust in Christ? And what does that mean to you on a daily basis? What does that really look like?

OBAMA: As a starting point, it means I believe in — that Jesus Christ died for my sins, and that I am redeemed through him. That is a source of strength and sustenance on a daily basis. Yes, I know that I don’t walk alone. And I know that if I can get myself out of the way, that I can maybe carry out in some small way what he intends. And it means that those sins that I have on a fairly regular basis, hopefully will be washed away.

But what it also means, I think, is a sense of obligation to embrace not just words, but through deeds, the expectations, I think, that god has for us. And that means thinking about the least of these. It means acting — well, acting justly, and loving mercy, and walking humbly with our god. And that — I think trying to apply those lessons on a daily basis, knowing that you’re going to fall a little bit short each day, and then being able to kind of take note and saying, well, that didn’t quite work out the way I think it should have, but maybe I can get a little bit better. It gives me the confidence to try things, including things like running for president, where you’re going to screw up once in a while.

WARREN: Yes. Let’s go through the tough ones. Now, the most –

OBAMA: I thought that was pretty tough.

WARREN: That was a freebie. That was a gimme. That was a gimme, OK?

So what does “faith in Jesus Christ” and “to trust in Christ” mean to Obama?  His answer is that it includes an obligation to Socialism.  This worldview was evidenced in one of Obama’s few bills as a U.S. Senator: his Global Poverty Act, which puts its focus on goals that Jesus said are unattainable, instead of addressing poverty the way Jesus taught us to.

Barack’s answer satisfied both Biblically illiterate Christians and Rick Warren, who is not Biblically illiterate, but whose friendship with Barack led him to let Barack get away with a “gimme” instead of asking more detailed Biblical questions like, “Is Jesus Christ Lord?  Did God raise Him from the dead? How did Jesus say we should approach poverty?” 

I believe that Barack Hussein Obama would not confess, “Jesus Christ is Lord, and I believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead”, even though Barack’s very salvation depends on it!

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:9

Saying “Jesus Christ died for my sins, and that I am redeemed through him” says nothing about Jesus being Lord, and says nothing about God raising him from the dead. 

Based upon what the Bible says and what Obama has confessed with his own mouth, he is not saved.  Say whatever you want, but in my mind that also means he is not a Christian.

Some readers of this post will take issue with that last sentence.  But keep in mind that Obama claims he became a Christian under the pastorship of “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright.  Obama was never a Christian until he learned from “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright what it means to be a Christian.  And here are “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright’s own words:

How are we are seeing God, our theology, is not the same. And what we both mean when we say, “I am a Christian” is not the same thing!

When Barack and Jeremiah Wright say “I am a Christian”, it means they are followers of the racist, marxist, Black Liberation Theology.

Now in Barack’s speech to “the Muslim world” (when is he going to give a speech to “the Christian world”?), he once again told Muslims, atheists, Marxists, and Biblically illiterate Christians what they want to hear, so that all of those groups are nodding, “Oh, he agrees with me.”

That speech was a stealth attack on Jews and Biblically literate (a.k.a. “fundamentalist”) Christians. 

That speech was a stealth attack on Israel and the Judeo-Christian values and foundation of the United States of America.

It is historical truth that the U.S.A. is and always has been “a Christian Nation”.  I have written many posts on this topic.  Being “a Christian Nation” does not mean we are a nation of all Christians, although we are majority Christian, but rather being “a Christian Nation” means a nation whose laws were fundamentally based on the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.  This has been acknowledged throughout our history, with statements like the following:

“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”

First Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court

The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.

If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.

President Harry S. Truman

Yes, getting away from our Biblical foundation will lead to a totalitarian government.  And I believe that is exactly what Obama intends.  Almost every day that goes by, his actions reveal that agenda more and more.

If you look at many of the attacks that are routinely leveled by atheists and Jihadist-sympathizers against our Christian Nation, those attacks can be found referenced in Obama’s speech.

The Treaty of Tripoli?  Check.

The “COEXIST” mantra? Check. (I don’t have anything against “coexistence”, but to Liberals it doesn’t just mean “all get along in peace”, it means “all belief systems are equal”, which is dangerously untrue.)

Colonialism? Check. (Marxists are big on fighting “colonialism” and “imperialism”)

The events of 9/11 were our fault… the result of “denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims” and “the West as hostile to the traditions of Islam”?  Check.

Tolerance?  Check.  (The New Tolerance means tolerance of everything except Biblical morality, which can’t be tolerated because it is intolerant.  I know, the logic is twisted… the left does not even see how their mantra “The only thing that cannot be tolerated is intolerance” is itself an oxymoron and intolerant.)

“justice and progress”?  Check.  Progressive Social Justice.

Potential for Sharia law in the U.S.?  Check. “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition”.

Calling the Koran “Holy”?  Check. 

Referring to the Koran multiple times more than the Holy Bible?  Check.

Citing a Koran verse that is often cited by Imams to justify Jihad?  Check.

Deceiptfully mis-attributing many innovations to Muslim communities, while ignoring the plethora of innovations from Jewish communities?  Check.

Additional hints that Obama’s prior utterance of “my Muslim faith” was not an accident, but rather a reflection of his true beliefs?  Check.  (“… I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed.  That experience guides my conviction”)  The word “revealed” is a word Muslims use, and validates the belief that God Himself “revealed” Islam.

Fight those who are not friendly to Islam?  Check.  (“fight against negative stereotypes of Islam”)  Remember Obama’s book Assault Hope: From Jakarta to the White House.

Revolution against Imperialism?  Check.  (“We were born out of revolution against an empire”)  I’ve written extensively about how Obama claims the American Revolution was to “bring an Empire to its knees”.  That’s not at all what the American Revolution was about, and to suggest such displays Obama’s warped worldview.

Reference to Communist “struggle”?  Check.  Obama:

We were founded upon the ideal that all are created equal, and we have shed blood and struggled for centuries to give meaning to those words

Communist Party USA:

Our country’s founding Revolution exalted the ideals of equality, justice, and democracy, of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all. Marxists have long hailed its progressive significance… The Communist Party today upholds the continuing struggle to realize these ideals. The revolutionary democratic traditions of the United States call for radical change when injustice, inequality, and exploitation become unbearably oppressive.

Distortion of our National Motto?  Check.  Just like in the new Capitol Visitor Center, Obama has replaced our National Motto, “In God We Trust“, with the secular motto “E pluribus unum”.

We are shaped by every culture, drawn from every end of the Earth, and dedicated to a simple concept: E pluribus unum — “Out of many, one.”

He is allowed to say “Barack Hussein Obama”, while white conservatives were “thrown under the bus” for calling him by his full name?  Check.

Bragging that Muslims in America enjoy incomes and educational levels that are above average (i.e., above Christians)?  Check.

Subtle defense of Sharia Law?  Check.

the United States government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab and to punish those who would deny it.

What about the right of women and girls in Muslim countries to NOT wear the hijab? What about the right of women and girls in Muslim countries to NOT have acid thrown in their face?

More communist code words? Check. (“common humanity”… not Communist in and of itself, but Communists love to talk about “common this and “common” that…)

I could go on and on. These bullet points are just from the first 1/3 of the speech.

The bottom line is that Obama the polar opposite of Ronald Reagan.

Ronald Reagan believed in American exceptionalism. Ronald Reagan praised our Judeo-Christian heritage. Ronald Reagan fought against Communism and did not attack Capitalism.

Obama the polar opposite of Ronald Reagan, and he will say anything to anyone in order to build up enough of a power base to “fundamentally transform” this nation into first a Socialist, and then a Communist, country.

If Obama succeeds, our country will fail.

  4. Jon in CA says:

    Your entire concept is flawed. How can one be both Muslim and atheist. The two concepts are fundamentally at ends with each other. Were he truly a Muslim we would have at least seen him praying. Like Mormonism, Islam relies on very strong and life consuming rules. Unlike general Christianity, Islam is nearly entirely devout, and if one is not devout, one is basically not Muslim. How has no one seen our president in prayer 5 times a day. We have seen him drink alcohol. Oh, and I can speak German, French and Farsi in near perfect accents. Our founding fathers spoke French and German in near perfect accents as well. Just because today’s radical conservatives fear the rest of the world and we have a president who is well educated does not mean its in anyway a bad thing that he can pronounce words in another language. General Petraeus frequently says opening greetings in Arabic when giving press conferences in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    In response to your defense of Sharia Law:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

    The Constitution never mentions God.

    I would go through your arguments one by one but you are clearly beyond reason. The majority of your “communist code words” (communism and Islam were at war for decades) are hilarious. The British Empire was an empire that we, whether that was the true intention or not, did bring down to its knees, we may not have ended its expansive policies but the loss of America ended its westward conquest and dealt a severe blow.

    I assume you would be against removing In God We Trust from our currency also? I personally would find it more offensive to God to use our currency to purchase drugs, sex, pornography, etc. with his name on the currency. It clearly doesn’t make us a better country to wave Gods name in places.

    I am now ranting.

    Good day.

  5. Jon,

    I gave a more detailed answer to your comment in another post. Here, I’ll just respond to one thing. You say:

    The Constitution never mentions God.

    Who is “our Lord“?

    No Mention of God in the U.S. Constitution?

    Also, there are references to God in all 50 State Constitutions.

  6. MatrixWatcher says:

    ITTRP,

    Just to make it more clear for Jon, the quote from the actual Constitution, signed by some sons of ordained ministers, a minister, and all members of congregations and believers in Jesus Christ…

    “Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth.

    The 55 Delegates to the Constitution, jump to William Paterson

    Quote…
    “William Paterson, a Presbyterian, was a state attorney general, Governor of New Jersey, and a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. As a Supreme Court Justice, a newspaper account of his visit to the federal court in Portsmouth, New Hampshire shows he opened court in this fashion:”

    “On Monday last the Circuit Court of the United States was opened in this town. The Hon. Judge Paterson presided. After the Jury were impaneled, the Judge delivered a most eloquent and appropriate charge….Religion and morality were pleasingly inculcated and enforced as being necessary to good government, good order, and good laws, for ‘when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice [Proberbs 29:2].’… After the [jury] charge was delivered, the Rev. Mr. Alden addressed the Throne of Grace in an excellent and well adapted prayer.”

    Oh my! How dare a original Founding Father, Constitutional Signee, Supreme Court Justice honor the Bible in a court of Law!

    Our nation slowly dies from lack of knowledge. Knowledge of the history and principles upon which our foundation rested from the very beginning of our nation, that of Judeo-Christian principles.

    We were not founded upon the principles of French humanism. Our founders rejected the ways of the French at the time. As a result, every President has considered our nations foundations built upon Judeo-Christian biblical teachings and morality, utilizing the Roman/Greco rule of law and the idea that each individuals rights are God given.

    Only a fool thinks the rights of Americans were ever given by someone like a socialist state directed by people like Obama.

    Yet that is the direction the Democrats have been driving for ever since the ACLU, and other far left organizations appeared on the scene and took over their party. It is sad really as I know many have good intentions, but they’ve given themselves over to a souless, godless, humanist state.

    They want God out of the way, so faceless bureaucrats decide our fates, our childrens indoctrination, and a formation of elitist rulers who no longer answer to the people, but instruct every single facit of our lives.

  7. MatrixWatcher says:

    Jon,

    “I personally would find it more offensive to God to use our currency to purchase drugs, sex, pornography, etc. with his name on the currency. It clearly doesn’t make us a better country to wave Gods name in places.”

    Who is responsible for porn, drugs and the sex industry proliferating through our nation? ACLU, Democrats and the far left. Plus Libertarians.

    So, you are for freedom of local citizens to screen porn and perverts from their communities? To protect their children from porn flooding magazines, airwaves, cable and internet into their homes and towns?

    Why is it, local communities rights are taken away by federal decisions forced onto all of us by the ACLU.

    In God we trust was a decision by the nation at the time, not a few Supreme Court justices and the ACLU.

    Funny how you complain about one and not the other.

  8. MatrixWatcher,

    Hear, hear!

  9. We’re trying to promote a foreign policy that advances our interests, not that makes us feel good about ourselves,” said a senior administration official who, like others, declined to be identified, citing the sensitivity of the issue.

    “our interests”? Whose interests are they talking about?

    Seriously, the interests advanced by this speech and this foreign policy are the interests of the organization that really does have “57 states“. I.E., not the 50 states of the United States of America, but rather the 57 states of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference

  10. Almost two million people have inexplicably disappeared from the estimates of the U.S. Muslim population that President Barack Obama has given recently. In his speech to the Muslim world in Cairo on June 4, he spoke about “nearly seven million American Muslims in our country today.” On Sunday, the Karachi daily Dawn published an interview with him where he said “we have five million Muslims.”

    There was no explanation for the change, but his reason for citing the figure seemed to be the same. Shortly before his Cairo speech, Obama told the French television channel Canal Plus that “one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” He cited no figure there but mentioned seven million in Cairo three days later.

    Many blogs, FaithWorld included, questioned that figure and noted that estimates of the U.S. Muslim population range from 1.8 to 7-8 million. The U.S. Census Bureau cannot ask about religion on a mandatory basis but refers on its website to a Pew Forum study pegging Muslims at 0.6% of the population. The CIA World Factbook uses the same percentage figure. It translates into about 1.8 million.

    Speaking to Dawn, Obama lowered his estimate but made his original point again. He said: “We have Muslim Americans who are doing extraordinary things. In fact, their educational attainment and income is generally above the average here in the United States. We have Muslim members of Congress. And, in fact, we have 5 million Muslims, which would make us larger than many other countries that consider themselves Muslim countries.”

    Obama doesn’t say where he got his number of 7 million U.S. Muslims, or 5 million U.S. Muslims, or why he changed the number.

    The U.S. Census Bureau and the CIA World Factbook both use the same estimate of about 1.8 million U.S. Muslims (0.6% of the population).

    Wikipedia uses an estimate of 2.35 million (0.8% of the population).

    So, where does Obama come off saying 7 million or 5 million? He appears to be exaggerating the number by a factor of two, three, or four. What is his data source to back up his claim? And even if the U.S. had this exaggerated number of Muslims, that still would not make us “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world“.

    Even when you look at the lesser claim that our Muslim population would make us “larger than many other countries that consider themselves Muslim countries“, that claim is still questionable. Perhaps Obama is saying that it would be significant if the U.S. had a larger Muslim population than Kuwait. If we use the U.S. Census and CIA estimates of 1.8 million U.S. Muslims, even the tiny nation of Kuwait has more (1.985 million, 85% of their population). But even if we use Obama’s exaggerated number of 5 million, is that really supposed to be significant when you compare the land area and total population of the U.S. to Kuwait?

    Why is Obama so focused on bragging about Muslim accomplishments and Muslim populations?

    When has Obama ever bragged about Jewish accomplishments and Jewish populations?

    Even with Obama’s exaggerated estimate of 5 million U.S Muslims, there are more Jews than Muslims in the U.S., according to Wikipedia’s estimate of 5.275 million U.S. Jews.

    Again I ask: When has Obama ever bragged about Jewish accomplishments and Jewish populations?

    And, for that matter:
    When has Obama ever bragged about Christian accomplishments and Christian populations?

    Obama is not a neutral third party. He is clearly pro-Islam, and promotes Islam over Judaism and Christianity.

    Obama can claim that he is a Christian, but until he meets the Biblical standard of salvation (confessing with his mouth the Lord Jesus and believing that God has raised Him from the dead) he has not proven he is a Christian.

    In fact, by refusing to confess the Lord Jesus, he has proven that he is not saved.

    Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

    Matthew 10:32-33
