OPINION, Jan. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today is the inauguration of our 44th president, Barack Hussein Obama. As I've watched the festivities in Washington and around the country over the past few days, it has been a huge reminder just how spiritually bankrupt and blind our nation really is.
In accordance with scripture, I'll be praying each morning for our new president. I'll pray that Barack Hussein Obama will turn his heart to God and surrender his life to Jesus Christ. I'll pray for the Obama family's safety and that God will watch over them. And I encourage and ask everyone to join me each morning in lifting up our new president, Barack Hussein Obama in prayer.
Four years ago, half of the nation put its hope in a man who made promises to lead this nation on the key spiritual issues of the day, those that had been robbing us of God's blessings. Today, we'll swear in our next president; but he has not only promised to lead this nation in further rebellion to God on the key spiritual issues of our day, I have no doubt that he'll fulfill these promises.
Our new president has vowed to sign into law the Freedom of Choice Act to insure abortion is available in all fifty states at any stage of the pregnancy, right up to the moment of the child's birth. Barack Hussein Obama will advocate American tax dollars to be spent around the world to help slaughter innocent babies in foreign countries.
Under Barack Hussein Obama, the radical homosexual agenda will flourish. Look for gay marriage to be legalized in more states. Look for adoption by same sex couples to be opened up in all fifty states. By the end of 2009, there'll be hate speech laws on our books, making it illegal to preach against the sin of homosexuality. And the inaugural event on Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial was desecrated by an unrepentant practicing homosexual Bishop in the Episcopal Church giving the invocation.
Radical homosexual groups in this nation are on the march, having planned to host a pig orgy at a major Washington hotel as part of the inaugural celebration. Google the phrase pig orgy, and witness with your own eyes how they'd planned to celebrate. It was only because outraged citizens found out about it that the hotel was forced to cancel the event. Sin knows no bounds!
Israel has every right to be very worried about our new president. Like past presidents, Barack Hussein Obama is all for giving away part of the land God gave to the children of Israel to her sworn enemies. He had a Muslim with ties to the terrorist group Hamas give the opening prayer at one of this weekend's inaugural events. And Muslims worldwide are already celebrating the fact that one of their own now occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The biggest issue our nation faces is the economy. Anyone who thinks President Barack Hussein Obama is going to solve this problem hasn't got a clue. If he really cared about the middle class as he claims, he wouldn't have allowed $150 million to be spent on his own inauguration. He has no real answers to our economic problems; this is because it is not really an economic problem, but a spiritual one!
Unless this nation repents, turns from its sins, and turns back to God and His truth, we will continue to feel His chastisement and punishment, and ultimately His full wrath and judgment.
I want to share with you my invocation at today's inauguration. This is the prayer Rick Warren might be praying if he weren't more a marketer than a minister, more a businessman than a bishop, more a politician than a prophet.
"Almighty God, hear the humble pleas of your people today. Oh God, we have no right to even ask for your blessings on this day. We are a wicked and sinful people. We slaughter four thousand innocent lives every twenty-four hours. We've made a mockery of your holy institution of marriage and the family. While claiming to be a friend to Israel, we have cursed your chosen people by plotting with her enemies. We've forsaken you for every false god and idol man has created out of his rebellious mind."
"For all of these gross indiscretions we can only ask your forgiveness. We ask your blessings on our incoming president and his family. Oh God, I pray that they will surrender their hearts and lives to you and that they will be guided by the only truth there is, your holy word. May this nation today recognize that we are totally dependent upon you and that our blessings come from above as we faithfully and obediently follow and honor you with our lives. May we turn back to you and the truth of your word and ask you to bless us as we do. In the name that is above all names, the only name by which men are saved, the name of the savior of the world, Jesus Christ, amen."
