The President Does It Again! Oops, he did it again.

President Obama misquoted the Scriptures again during the National Prayer Breakfast. The president twisted Jesus' words to justify his political policy of class warfare, which includes punishing those who work hard (of whom some are very generous), in order to take their money and supposedly give it the needy (which is the main thought in Marxism or Communism). He used the words of Jesus found in Luke 12:48b: "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." Here we find that Jesus was talking about individual stewardship and their relationship with God. He's the One who will judge the faithfulness of each person's stewardship and blessing, or lack thereof. For it is God who gives each person different portions of gifts, talents, and treasure to manage according to His sovereign will, and not the government. Obama must believe that when he says "much is given," he refers to what is given by the government; and "much is demanded," as that which is demanded by the government. This is exactly opposite to the truth. It does not take a scholar to figure out the context of the Lord's speech, as anyone can find the meaning of it by reading it. "And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes; For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." (Luke 12:42-48) While some politicians and people abuse Scriptures to justify what they do, it must be followed in context of what was written or said by God. The Bible says that in the mouth of two or three witness, that the word of God is established. (2 Corinthians 13:1; Deuteronomy 17:6) So concepts must be based precept (commands) upon precept, line upon line, and here a little and there a little. or progressively and not sporadically taught. If not, then we are in danger of wrestling Scriptures unto our own destruction (2 Peter 3:16; Hebrews 10:26) Many have seen Obama in the past mock the Bible, when he gave a speech that mocked the ceremonial law of the Old Testament. In it he said something to the effect of, "How can you govern by the Sermon on the Mount?" (Call to Renewal, June 28, 2006) The speech made by him is on YouTube. I have read all of it, yet it reeks of something that still mocks Christians and the Ceremonial Law.
