Neurosurgeon Ben Carson Not Sorry for Prayer Breakfast Speech


Renowned Neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson

Slammed by detractors for going "rogue" in delivering a politically incorrect speech criticizing government policies at the National Prayer Breakfast, attended by President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, last Thursday, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson says he won't apologize for speaking the truth. And although it's not his intention, he won't rule out a presidential run, either.

A video of his remarks at the Breakfast continues to get rave reviews on YouTube and other social media for his "logical" and "common sense" ideas on issues like healthcare, education and taxation. Before discussing these issues, however, Carson warned the audience that he was going against being politically correct because he felt it wasn't helping America move forward.

"I'm very, very compassionate and I am not ever out to offend anyone but pc (political correctness) is dangerous. Because you see ...

Thank you Dr Carson for a very very impressive speech which you did deliver during the National Prayer Breakfast last year(2013). Thank you for your boldness in speaking out for the important things which others may consider pc. Any ways that brother Jim must be carrying some chips on his shoulders...wake up man, we still live in a political world and we cannot please all the people all the time but God. Outstanding indeed Dr Carson.

jamesc, you brought up some good points. But "Mother" Teresa is truly a Satanic example.
"Mother" Teresa wrote:
I love all religions. ... If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddhists by our acts of love, then there is something else growing there.....
All is God -- Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, etc., all have access to the same God.
excerpt from, "Mother" Teresa (1910-1997)--General Teachings/Activities

It should be pointed out attending these "Prayer" meetings is not really Christian, and no God doesn't listen to everyone's Prayer.

Though I do not agree with her theology (Galatians 1), Mother Teresa was more forceful and direct in her prayer breakfast speech given in 94 when she spoke of abortion as "the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself."
http://www.priestsforlife.org/brochures/mtspeech.html

It seems to me that Ben Carson was being more political than Christian. You'd think since he was a Christian and a Doctor that he'd speak of the obvious---abortion.

However, He could have one-uped Teresa by citing John 14:6, Acts 4:12, etc. Now that would have drawn a line in the sand. A pro-life person will still go to hell if he/she is not born again. Soli Deo Gloria.

I still didn't hear this given--
The Roman Road
Romans 3:10
As it is written, "There is none righteous, not even one."
Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 5:12
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.
Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 10:9
That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
Romans 10:13
For "Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved."---NASB

Matthew 6:1 "Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.---NASB

He forgot the most important message. But, hey, the first 10 minutes or so of his speech was quite good.

Mike, I would suppose the only commentary that I would see appropriate would be the The Roman Road. I'm sure Daniel didn't like Nebuchadnezzar's actions, nor I would doubt that the apostle Paul, like many things that Nero did.

So while this Dr. Carson has a right to his opinions, and stating them made those who agree with him quite satisfied, do you really think they had any effect on those who didn't agree with him?

I think I've seen too many Christians who have used their positions or opportunity for self-advancement, rather than relaying the Gospel. Now the Gospel probably would have been even less welcomed than Mr. Carson's political and economic positions, but still, I would have seen it entirely appropriate under the circumstances--no matter how unwelcomed it might be. We weren't to spread the gospel of Capitalism or even morality, though for a politician or secular individual there certainly can be times to do this, but still I need to point out, The Inadequacy of Moralism.

But, I wish you well on your Street Preaching --.... Fine work

Jim Lincoln,
Okay? And sincerely thanks for telling me. You are certainly entitled to your opinion in this matter, and I trust that you likewise acknowledge I am as well, whether or not I might be right or wrong in it.

To me I am still encouraged as Dr. Carson's comments where a very polite, respectful and still "in your face" reproof of Obama's communist/socialist and Islamic, I'll have to you the word "beliefs" as what we have seen in his actions which speak far louder and with much more damage than his verbal words as he is so particular to parse them and hide or confuse what he is doing and go back on the things he says, not his actions, just his words when he chooses to.

In this clip I certainly didn't see him holding hands with President Obama and his pro-partial birth abortion wife, ignoring their sin (remember 2 Chronicles 7:14?).

All of us might remember, we so need God's wisdom to be in the world and not of it, otherwise we might justify running away, being uninvolved and hiding the very light of the Gospel we might seek to make real to the lost under the bushel basket of the safety of our own churches.

Michael, I'm going to disagree with you somewhat on this one, and still not going back on what I said a pastor could "tinker" in politics during his "off" hours, the fact still remains that people could confuse people who one is suppose to get the Gospel to. The Church in the Political Process. I will congratulate my church leadership for doing an excellent job of staying out of politics during this last series of elections, and for "keeping their eye on the ball." The Truth Behind The Church's Purpose is to spread and expound on the Gospel.

One thing this doctor, has not noticed The Inadequacy of Moralism, he also shouldn't've been at the Prayer breakfast in the first place, and using it as a political platform, makes him look no better than anyone else. I'm not impressed with his actions.

Wow! What an encouraging example.

February, if is "Black History Month" and the Medical Office my wife works in is observing it.

IMHO Dr. Benjamin Carson would be a wonderful man to remember whether you are black or white or any other skin color. For that matter a wonderful individual for Pastors, Sunday School Teachers or Christians who desire to serve in government to remember and learn from as well.
