Obama Uses Bible, Christian Faith to Defend Transgender Bathroom Directive to Schools
President Barack Obama said that his understanding of the Bible and his Christian beliefs led him to issue the directive at public schools calling on students to be allowed to use the bathroom of their choosing regardless of their biological sex.
"My reading of scripture tells me that that [the] Golden Rule is pretty high up there in terms of my Christian belief," he said during a town hall in Elkhart, Indiana, according to Breitbart News on Thursday.
This is sickening! It really takes a lot of gall for this shameless scum to twist the Holy Scriptures to promote perversity and ungodliness. There seems to be nothing too loathsome that this reprobate will not support. Pure evil!!!
Hey Connor I knew what you meant my favorite versions are ESV NASB KJV and NKJV a lot of the times I like how the KJV sounds but for flow of reading I like the NASB. I've noticed that this very comment might give some people some adverse reaction on here but for me I enjoy all these translations. I also like that KJV is from the Textus Receptus which has inspired many writers like Luther and many others. This text is based on the most preserved and common texts not just the oldest. This shows this very verse in action 6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. (Psalm 12:6-7, KJV) But what about other languages KJV only people(not applied to you Connor ) is there no life in word of these other languages? Not saying that my favorite isn't the KJV but I like some of the newer translations as well. You can read and it mean nothing to you whatever translation you read the most important translator is the Holy Ghost!
This golden rule "treat others the way you want to be treated" is way out of context! If you are Christian and you are in error so much so that you will be damned for eternity, you would want someone to rebuke you and warn you. So the golden rule when you are speaking to a homosexual is point out their error and tell them the consequences! If someone is playing on the train tracks and you see train coming shouldn't you tell them they will die if they continue, how much worse is it to be cast into hell than be hit by a train!
Matthew 10:28King James Version (KJV)
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
At the risk of being rebuked by moderator Beta once again, I must proclaim my favour for the KJV. In doing so, I also understand and have seen the fine spiritual fruit raised by those who read versions based on the Alexandrian Manuscripts
Moses wrote: Modern Fake Bibles make everyone a believer, and the world even darker. Thank God, he preserved His Word perfect the KJV. Tell Obama to read the KJV for a correct Biblical wisdom. And he needs to stop listening to those modern "bible" scholars who're still searching and searching and searching for the perfect word.
Which Bible was the Church of England using in the 1820s-1830s when theologians listened to the theories of Sir Charles Lyell, and renounced the doctrines of Creation and the Flood? It doesn't matter a whit if you have the "perfect" Bible but you don't believe what it says.
The great American Patriot and Baptist Richard Furman wrote about this when communist heresy first began to justify and misinterpret the Bible on social matters. "The Christian golden rule, of doing to others, as we would they should do to us, has been urged as an unanswerable argument against holding slaves. But surely this rule is never to be urged against that order of things, which the Divine government has established; nor do our desires become a standard to us, under this rule, unless they have a due regard to justice, propriety and the general good.
A father may very naturally desire, that his son should be obedient to his orders: Is he, therefore, to obey the orders of his son? A man might be pleased to be exonerated from his debts by the generosity of his creditors; or that his rich neighbour should equally divide his property with him; and in certain circumstances might desire these to be done: Would the mere existence of this desire, oblige him to exonerate his debtors, and to make such a division of his property? Consistency and generosity, indeed, might require it of him, if he were in circumstances which would justify the act of generosity; but, otherwise, either action might be considered as the effect of folly and extravagance."
No surprise, Obama uses the Communist interpretation of "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" which he grossly abuses as history has proven that others have done before him.
We are not to expect others to treat us without regard t justice, that is contrary to the laws of righteousness. We should not expect that our evil Behavior be accepted but condemned and frowned upon.
Trace the Communist principles which began with Nat Turner and the radical abolitionist John Brown comma who led insurrections and murdered others! in the cause of 'social justice' by abusing scripture in the same manner.
This is the doctrine of liberalism, the misinterpretation of love and Golden Rule, abuse of scripture to raise up humanist laws vs. God's laws.
"Judge with righteous judgement", said Jesus of the Bible.
From the news: "President Barack Obama said that his understanding of the Bible and his Christian beliefs led him to issue the directive at public schools calling on students to be allowed to use the bathroom of their choosing regardless of their biological sex."
Actually he speaks the truth. His understanding of the Bible would indeed lead him to issue a directive based on ignorance.
I agree with Michael H. There is no golden rule in the Bible. Many lost people think that doing unto others as you would have them do unto you sums up the Bible but the heart is deceitfully wicked and that which one sinner perceives as "good" is usually evil to another especially given that "good" is subjective. Better to stick to the Bible in regards to morality. The catch is-it may only be correctly understood by those who are spiritually regenerated. The natural man cannot understand it. Obama is one among many who misuses the Bible to support his own idea of that which constitutes "good". One cannot understand the Bible apart from knowing Christ; one cannot understand that which is written apart from understanding the language of the Author. ...just as an aside...looking for comments in regards to RCs who when asked whether or not they are a Christian will now respond "I am a catholic." This seems to be a new thing. They used to readily agree that they are Christian and not make the distinction.
Obama is correct. The Liberal (Democrat) bible does actually teach that you can carry on sinning regardless of what God says.
The Liberal bible states that everybody is going to heaven, there is no place called hell and sinning is a natural thing for mortals to do, therefore God excuses all sin. There is also a verse which explains that homosexual and transgender "morals" transcend Christian moral standards. All you have to do is redefine a word like "gay" and apply it to the sin and hey presto instant sanctification.
This bible is a progressive continuous book which stems from the "write it yourself" ideology which anybody can contribute to. This bible is very big on the doctrine of lawlessness.
1John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Hey Connor he is probably reading "the message bible" lol that is a straight piece of junk and it leaves out most if not all mention of specific sin like homosexuality. I hope no one is using that "translation" if you are do some research about it. But don't take my word do your own research about it if you use it. Just wanted to warn people.
This reminds me of "...they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction" (II Peter 3:16). This isn't the first time Obama has misused the Bible.
Save for the grace of God, it seems this man's wickedness knows no bounds.
Good comments and references. What IÂ alwaysÂ find so odd is that very specific commands and passages of scripture always seem to be completely invisible to many. Ask anyone about murder or lying being commanded against in the bible, and they'll say, "Yeah, it says that". Ask anyone about adultery or coveting, and they'll say, "Yep, those too". When it comes to the issue of sodomy, however, a topic made crystal clear througout the old and new testaments, you would think God never even mentions it, like the topic doesnâ€™t even exist. To whom much is given, much is expected doesn't apply only to those spiritual leaders, but any who are placed in authority to lead a people. This man, this one man wrecking machine, will be giving a full account to the boss one day when his outrageous arrogance will be squashed and the loins of Kings will be loosed as the judge, judges them for their crimes against humanity and for their part in the destruction of souls.
