Black pastors careful in voicing support of Obama
The Rev. Jeffrey Bryan has posted campaign signs for "Obama in '08" and displayed snapshots of the presumed Democratic presidential nominee visiting his Newark, N.J., church. At times he wears a T-shirt emblazoned with Barack Obama's face.

That's as far as Bryan will go ‚ÄĒ there will be no sermons peppered with "Vote Obama!"

"It's a historical time for black people. We cannot ignore what's going on," Bryan said. Yet, he added, "you can't tell people who to vote for."

It is not valid to allow prejudice to determine truth, even if it was allowed in the past. One may say Obama is white, and be just as correct as those who say he is black.

Michael Battle, president of the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, pointed to ministers like Moral Majority founder Jerry Falwell and Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson.

"For a long time those preachers have been very, very engaged in this effort to get people to register and to vote for the candidate of their choice ‚ÄĒ so it is not new to the black church, nor is it new to the white church, to encourage participation in the democracy," Battle said.

It makes no difference that Sen. Obama isn't experienced enough to be president. What makes him special is he is Black.
To vote for a person based on his appearance rather than his qualifications is juvenile at best. To support a candidate because he looks like you or has your hair color or he is the same religion is putting this country at a greater risk than when Republicans voted for George Bush because he's republican or "Christian".
My problem is that blacks would not have been as eager to get voters to register had Hillary won the Democrat nomination, unless Hillary would have put Obama on the ticket.
These are the facts.
Blacks are voting for Obama for the main reason, he is black and that is truly sad for the human race.
You want to make history, Vote for the one who is best, not who you like.

They don't need to tell them who to vote for - just like Barak had Jeremiah Wright, they have had over thirty years of James Cone's "Black Liberation Theology" telling them what they must do - "destroy the white devils" - by whatever means.

KK said, "Far too many are looking at color and not at character !!!", and then goes on to name McCain as the lesser of two evils. Excuse me, but McCain is an admitted adulterer. Obama is still married to his first and only wife.

KK said, "Pastors who endorse Obama have turned from THE TRUTH to embrace a lie !!!" Since neither candidate can be credibly identified as a Bible-believing Christian, then by this standard it would be equally wrong for pastors to endorse McCain. In fact, using this standard, why should Christians vote at all?

KK said, "Obama -- the friend of the Devil -- a champion of every hellish thing !!!" This is obviously false. "A champion of every hellish thing"? O, come on. This statement is so silly, it must be inspired by racism. It certainly has no basis in fact.

KK said, "Those who profess Jesus as Lord and Savior cannot, in good conscience, be for Obama !!! --- To be a friend of Obama is to be an enemy of GOD." So, is one a "friend" of God if he votes for McCain? Give me Bible chapter and verse, please. If Christians should only vote for the Christian candidate, then we all need to stay home, because I don't know for sure that we've ever had a genuinely Christian candidate.

I'm sure I detect a racist.

Calgon baths are for filthy sweaters & [religious (stuff)]shirts like "vigilante"; whose Satanic-Vaticanist, Roman "Catholic" Cultic & Hegelian-Principled "Jesuitic" ideology is only agravating the present distress of The Roman Vaticanist Priestly Pedophile Scandal--Not to metion their attempt to subvert this Sermonaudio website:

The beauty of his/their strategy is that "vigilante" leads the final Satanic-Vatican resistance here in the Sermonaudio website down the exact road he/they want. You see, in 2009, the blockbuster Tom Hanks & Ron Howard movie, Angels and Demons is coming out. This "Jesuit" propaganda movie will tell Americans the Satanic-Vatican is fighting the evil Illuminati and Freemasonry who are trying to destroy the Mother "Church". The people will believe that and this will put anyone associated with "vigilante" on the crazy evil side since they now claim to be following a "vigilant(e)" 'Christian'. Good and bad will get lost in shuffle as the Satanic-Vatican will even claim there is no good side of the Illuminati and Freemasonry.

By controlling both sides in the end they win and in the end "vigilante" was one of their boys playing his small part to advance the Satanic-Vatican-led New World Order.

[That is the reason why he posted his Diabolical comments!]

rob: You took the words right out of my mouth:

After Voting for Obama:

I will continue to Preach The WORD from The Authorized Biblical Literalist Gospel of The LORD Jesus Christ; IN season & OUT of season:

Reproving, Rebuking & Exhorting with ALL Longsuffering & Doctrine-

For the time HAS ALREADY COME when THEY will NOT endure Sound Doctrine-

But after THEIR OWN LUSTS have THEY Heaped to Themselves Teachers, having Itching Ears-

And They HAVE turned away Their ears from the TRUTH-

And HAVE turned unto FABLES-

Political FABLES; which say that the TRUE answer can be found in the contrivances of men: instead-of/rather-than In The Authorized Biblical Literalist GOSPEL of The LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth in Israel !

Brethren, Let's Continue To Preach & Teach The GOSPEL while it is DAY-

For The NIGHT Cometh--In Which NO MAN Will Be Able To LABOR:

"He that goeth forth and WEEPETH, bearing PRECIOUS SEED, shall doubtless COME AGAIN with REJOICING, bringing his SHEAVES with HIM." Psalm 126:6

"The FRUIT of the RIGHTEOUS is A TREE of LIFE; and HE that WINNETH SOULS is WISE." Proverbs 11:29-30

EXCUSE ME BRETHREN; BUT I HAVE TO GET OFF THIS COMPUTER, RIGHT NOW, & GO OUT INTO THE WORLD & PRACTICE WHAT I'VE JUST PREACHED:

GOING

WEEPING

BEARING !

Unfortunately,t he lesser of two evils, is stil EVIL! Christ said there would always be a narrow way. Let's, as folowers of Christ, take it & stop belly-aching! We love our country -US, but this is not our home. Our citizenship is already in heaven. Witness & obey while there is still light.

My thoughts exactly. I kind of like Bob Barr who is running as a third party candidate, but he has the proverbial snowball's chance. Plus, the Libretarians have some wacky ideas as a party (which Barr may or may not endorse fully). All things considered, I would vote Barr over the other two, but it would be throwing the vote away. We'll all have to keep a close watch on the running mates on each ticket as November comes ever closer. As an aside, none of us could stand up to the background checks that these candidates go through. Everyone has done something that they are not proud of or that is un-Biblical. Both of the candidates from the major parties stink this year. I do think McCain is the lesser of two evils personally, but this is one of those cycles where no matter who wins, the people lose. BTW speaking even as a Bush supporter (one of seven nation wide that still exist I believe), I don't think the guy ever got a 'fair' deal and he honestly tried his best, but I think we can all agree that it really is time for a change. I just hope it is a change for the better.

My suggestion is that before you vilify Obama, get to know the real McCain first.

1) Had relationship (adultrous) outside of marriage. Current wife is beneficiary of that unlawful union.

2) Shares same belief with Obama that marriage should be between a man and a woman. However, also, like Obama, believes that homosexual "unions" are okay.

3) Legitimizes Sodomy and homosexual lifestyle by appearing on the Ellen Degenerate show.

4) Is helping to sustain governments (Iraq) and other (Saudi Arabia) that knows virtually nothing of true biblical Christianity.

Let's not kid ourselves, neither of these men will rule biblically.

Christian Resistance: a Biblical Idea Whose Time Has Come Again - Book by Evangelist, Dr. Donald Boys, Ph.D.

"Evangelistic pastors have failed for almost 100 years to properly convey Biblical teaching as to when to resist authorities and when to obey. At this time, close to the appearance of Antichrist, Personal Timidity + Biblical Ignorance, may prove spritually fatal to a great many Christians. The Bible obligates Christians to resist any law conflicting with Scriptural principles. Most pastors are strangely silent on the issue of resistance....

First-Century Christians submitted themselves to the Emperor, but only AFTER Jesus; since Roman law forbade any commitment to an authority higher than the Emperor, this stand led to the martrydom of countless Christians.

Soft, present-day pastors see government as the final authority, and wrongly urge their people to obey any law of government. The bottom line is there comes a point where a Christian has both the right and the duty to disobey the State...."

KK, I would agree with part of that, however, God is always in control. [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=31004111331]]]Truth or Consequences[/URL].

Far too many are looking at color and not at character !!!

Pastors who endorse Obama have turned from THE TRUTH to embrace a lie !!!

Obama -- the friend of the Devil -- a champion of every hellish thing !!!

Those who profess Jesus as Lord and Savior cannot, in good conscience, be for Obama !!! --- To be a friend of Obama is to be an enemy of GOD ...

The best of the two evils "We" have to choose from is clearly McCain and "We" are going to have to keep "Our" eyes on him at all times !!!

The truth be told "Our" Government is out of control and I pray GOD will move all the hellhounds out of the way that TRUTH MIGHT STAND ONCE AGAIN !!! --- For this to happen "We The People" must be on "Our" guard --- "We" must put away all bigotry and learn to really love and respect one another --- "We" must not allow politicions to set "Us" against each other ... "We" MUST STAND AS ONE ***WITH ONE VOICE*** FOR GOD AND COUNTRY !!!

"We" MUST HOLD FAST TO THAT WHICH IS ***TRUE*** AND OF GOOD REPORT !!!

Without GOD "We" will fail !!!

"We" MUST REPENT --- individually and corporately !!! --- That means to turn around and go the other way (**THE RIGHT WAY**) !!!

BIBLICAL MORALITY FIRST -- not the haphazard morality of hell-bent men !!!

Veritas Vincit !!!

KK
