Judge Not – Ron Graham – twotug@embarqmail.com
I receive numerous emails from folks condemning me for my strong stance against Obama’s agendas. Most of these emails I just ignore. The words that are contained in these emails, along with the all capital “shouting”, tells me that they are already so infuriated with me that if we were in the same room I’m certain they would try to do me harm. And all but one so far have been from professing Christians. What a wonderful world we live in. Over and over again I’m given the scripture verse that says “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” Matthew 7:1. Excuse me, but Jesus also gives the following admonition: “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.” John 7:24. That one they conveniently omit.
The Greek word for judge is “krino” and it means “to call into question”. This is what Jesus means when He says “judge with righteous judgment”. We are to call into question the unbiblical actions of individuals and discern for ourselves whether or not to follow such a person or persons. This is something that is sorely lacking in the Christian community and mindset today. Everyone is afraid of being accused of judging others. When that verse is used it is always in relationship to someone condemning someone else. Christians aren’t to condemn but we are to judge/call into question the actions of others and use biblical discernment to do so.  
If we look at the world through the lens of the Bible we can navigate much more responsibly our lives here on earth. Using God’s word as our guide through life isn’t something I take lightly.  
Here’s the truth of the matter, if you are an Obama supporter you are also a supporter of abortion. If you are an Obama supporter you are a full-fledged supporter of the homosexual movement in this country. Sending me emails claiming I am judgmental and a bigot isn’t going to change the fact that you agree with Obama and you support his agendas. Whether or not you agree with my stance is inconsequential, it’s God’s stance on the issues that concerns me and that is where I take my stand using biblical discernment.
God’s Stance on Abortion
“I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.” Psalm 22:10.
“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Psalm 127:3.
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.” Psalm 139:13.
“Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb…” Isaiah 44:2.
“Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.” Isaiah 49:1.
“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” Isaiah 49:15.
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee…” Jeremiah 1:5.
“Thou shalt not kill” Exodus 20:13. The word “Kill” here means a pre-meditated act such as abortion.
We Americans have now placed into the Oval Office a man who is giving us everything he said he would. His first action as president was to re-enable abortion on demand; he’s now attempting to repeal all laws across this nation both, State and Federal, which put any restrictions on the abortion fanatics and their evil agendas, and completely destroying the laws that were so fearlessly fought for over the past eight years. Obama is now going full steam ahead with his plan.
God’s Stance on Homosexuality
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: Leviticus 18:22-24
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: … For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: … And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:24, 26, 27. Too many professing Christians consider these verses to be obsolete, although we are told by the writer of the book of Hebrews that “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8. In other words, Jesus never changes and He never changes His mind about how these scripture verses are to be interpreted even by our current generation. So for those of you who believe these verses to be obsolete, you better think again. 
Obama seems bound and determined to aggressively promote homosexuals and their lifestyle and he’s doing so to the fullest extent of his abilities and from the most privileged office in the land. Because of Obama, the homosexual agenda has been advanced to new heights, the likes of which were unheard of in the previous administrations.
My stance on both abortion and homosexuality are biblical. I don’t stand on my feelings but on God’s words. When I discuss Obama with my readership I always quote Scripture verses to show the authority by which I write these commentaries. God’s word is the final authority. If you disagree with the scripture verses in the Bible you need to take that up with God, He put them there not I. When those readers lash out at me they are only proving they are against God. These new friends of mine never seem to be able to supply scripture verses that would place me at odds with the word of God.
God’s Stance on the Wicked
“The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but He loveth him that followeth after righteousness.” Proverbs 15:9. God hates wickedness and He considers homosexuality wickedness.
“He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.” Proverbs 17:15. For those who try and condone this wickedness God has a message for you, you are an abomination to Him.
“An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.” Proverbs 29:27. Those of you who condemn me because of my stance against these abominations are proving the Bible’s accuracy.
Some have called me a bigot because Obama has dark skin and they say that’s why I stand against him. Actually I don’t really care what a person’s skin tone is; it’s their heart and attitude towards God’s word that I’m concerned with. Do they take His word seriously and literally, or do they consider God’s word to be full of obsolete verses and myths. I will always stand up for my Savior and Lord and it doesn’t matter to me if people want to condemn my biblical stance, that stance won’t change. God’s truth is the only measuring line for our lives and nothing else comes close, therefore nothing else matters.
Many in this country voted for Obama because they didn’t like the alternative. Biblically speaking, though, voting for Obama was the same as slapping God in the face. God gave us an alternative to an abortion activist and a homosexuality promoter, but America refused His alternative and voted into office God’s nemesis. Those of you who email me and call me names such as homophobic and bigot and then misquote scripture are only lashing out at what you don’t understand about God’s word. You are actually angry at God because His word is concise and without error and you don’t like that. Especially you don’t want anyone quoting scripture verses that clearly stand against your views. Many would rather live in darkness than come out into the light. “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them,” 2 Corinthians 4:3, 4.
Our economy:
Global government, global economy, and global ecumenicalism are all catch phrases being tossed around these days. We know it wasn’t Obama who started this steam roller effect of the downfall of the American economy, but it seems to be his intent to cause that steam roller to be converted into light speed. Warren Buffet made a statement the other day that the American economy is in freefall mode. Wow, that from one of the savviest traders on Wall Street; a statement like that coming from a man who probably stands to lose more of his personal wealth than any other human being on this planet. That statement comes after the biggest bank “bail out” debacles ever to hit this continent. Buffet believes there is no let up in sight for the freefall of this economy. Hmm
As we head into the next four years of an Obama presidency we will see and feel the temperature rising under our seats. The stage is being set for the grand unveiling of the New World Order. Our Bibles speak of this phenomenon happening in the very last days before Christ’s return.
I feel a kind of peace as I watch the current worldwide events unfolding and know that they are completely biblical and that they were indeed foretold by the prophets thousands of years ago. We’ve read about the end times by now and the events that are to happen and we’ve been taught many different scenarios on how those events would unfold, but to actually witness the physical unveiling of the word of God before our eyes has a peaceful yet eerie feeling, like something huge is about to happen.
For those who think I’m picking on our new president unjustifiably, get out your Bibles and blow off all those layers of dust, then study the scriptures I’ve placed in this commentary for yourselves. Become Bereans, look up Acts 17:11 and place that verse at the forefront of your studies. I’ve heard many professing Christians claiming they are sure God placed Obama in that office, and because they believe he is ordained by God he must have been placed there to bring America out of these terrible times we seem to be stuck in. In a culture and society bent on the total rejection of Christ, and where God is outlawed from every aspect of our government, why would God ordain a man whose main goal as president is the godless agendas I’ve mentioned? Perhaps God is trying to get our attention before His hammer falls?
At any rate I’m not the person following Satan’s agenda for the world. I’m not the one sitting in that Oval Office promoting the vilest of atrocities ever hurled against the unborn. By signing into law an executive order repealing all restrictions on stem cell research, and by opening up the financing of abortions worldwide Obama is certainly following Satan’s agenda for mankind.
Honestly, apart from his homosexual agenda which he is pushing forward with the full force of the US government behind him, the man seems obsessed with the destruction of the unborn and all for the advancement of embryonic stem cell research? Research that for years has been known to be nothing more than a complete failure; to those researchers it’s all about the money honey. Friends, there’s something more sinister behind all this than meets the eye.
Did God allow Obama to become president of this once great nation? Yes. How do I know that? Because Obama now sits in the highest office this nation has to offer. Did God allow Obama to occupy that office for the good of this nation? Let me reiterate, here we sit doing all we can as a nation to give God the boot and you still need to ask that question?
On the statue of Liberty, the words etched into that grand lady’s base are these, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: “I lift my lamp beside the golden door”.
I see an addendum to those words coming very soon “But our golden doors are shut to your Christian God, America only worships at the altar of Baal.”
God help us,
Ron Graham
