"Billy Graham's Team on Obama"


By Bill Brown of the Billy Graham Team

Bill Brown, is a highly respected retired member of the Billy Graham team so, I take his assessment of Obama very seriously and for that reason accept his challenge to pass this on. I share his concern about the 'rock star' image Obama has and watch with growing concern at the celebrity status the media has foisted upon him. Here is hope this email informs you in a wise way.

The Obama Tidal Wave

We are witnessing a political phenomenon with Barack Obama of rare magnitude.

His speeches have inspired millions and yet most of his followers have no idea of what he stands for except platitudes of 'Change' or that he says he will be a 'Uniter'.

The power of speech from a charismatic person truly can be a powerful thing. Certainly Billy Graham had charisma. Both his manner of speech and particularly the content changed millions.

On the extreme other hand, the charisma of Adolph Hitler, too, inspired millions and the results were catastrophic.

Barack Obama certainly is no Hitler or a Billy Graham, but for many Americans riding on the Obama Tidal Wave it is just like a surfer who might be ecstatic and euphoric while riding a tidal wave, but the reality of the ride is what happens when it hits shore.

Just Some of What Defines Barack Obama:

He voted for partial birth abortion.
He voted no on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions.
Supports affirmative action in Colleges and Government (quotas).
In 2001 he questioned harsh penalties for drug dealing as being too severe.
Says he will deal with street level drug dealing as minimum wage affair.
Admitted his use of marijuana and cocaine in high school and in college.
His religious convictions are very murky.
He is willing to meet with Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jung Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Has said that one of his first goals after being elected would be to have a conference with all Muslim nations. Why?

Opposed the Patriot Act.
First bill he signed that was ever passed was campaign finance reform.
Voted to allow law suits against gun manufacturers.
Supports universal health-care.
Voted yes on providing habeas corpus for Guantanamo detainees.
Supports granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.
Supports extending welfare to illegal immigrants.
Voted yes on comprehensive immigration reform.
Voted yes on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security.
Wants to make the minimum wage a 'living wage'.
Voted with Democratic Party 96 percent of 251 votes. (241 votes Demo, 10 votes Republican)
Is a big believer in the separation of church and state.
Opposed to any efforts to Privatize Social Security and instead supports increasing the amount of tax paid into Soc. Sec. Tax Increase.
He voted No on repealing the Alternative Minimum Tax which now hits middle income brackets.. Tax Increase.
He voted No on repealing the 'Death' Tax. Tax Increase.
He wants to raise the Capital Gains Tax. Tax Increase.
Has repeatedly said the surge in Iraq has not succeeded...which is not true.

He is ranked as the most liberal Senator in the Senate today and that takes some doing.

If your political choices are consistent with Barack Obama's and you think that his positions will bring America together or make it a better place, then you will probably enjoy the ride and not forward this Email. If you are like most Americans that after examining what he stands for, are truly not in line with his record, it would be prudent to get off the wave or better yet, never get on, before it comes on shore and undermines the very foundations of this great Country. We have limited time to save America or the Supreme Court as we know it.
If you agree this is important, pass it on. The mainstream media will not do it for you!

Exodus 20:13: Thou shalt not kill.

Matthew 5:21: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

While serving in the Illinois Senate, Barack Obama voted against protecting live-born survivors of abortion! Live babies have been left to die among soiled linens and biohazardous materials after botched abortions as though they were trash! God help us!

Could Obama strike down all state pro-life laws if elected president?

Americans should Pray for the will of God to be done in their land.

Although I'm not an American (and therefore have none of your fast depreciating money), I bet my last dollar that the list compiled about what Obama has or hasn't done was cherry picked to suit your own agenda.

I have to concur with Channel of Healing.

If we believe in a risen Messiah who has saved us unto eternal salvation, then we know all is temporal. If we believe that our Christ will return on high, then we live as foreigners on earth. Knowing this, we are alive and well during the end times, we know what the eventual end of America will be. No one elected will form America into moral correctness or purity. It is a fantasy and one not in alignment with the Gospel.

We have suffered through 8 years under George W. Bush "rule". We all know what group elected him into office, America has not gotten any better morally... Proving without a doubt the manifestation of the Word,

"That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." -- 1 Corinthians 2:5

If any Christian is inclined to vote, by all means vote! But do it under the power of the Holy Spirit. Do it with the will of God in mind, unlimited by the parameters of human thought and reasoning. Never forgetting, that it IS the will of God for Christ to reign FOREVER as King. Knowing this will, we must be prepared to accept that His wisdom of the next President of the United States just may not line up with yours...

Keep your eyes heaven-ward for it IS nearer than when we first believed...

In the love of Christ,

Hello Guffer,

My agenda is to let people know
the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Romans 10:09
10:9 because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord10 and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10:10 For with the heart one believes and thus has righteousness11 and with the mouth one confesses and thus has salvation.12 10:11 For the scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”13 10:12 For there is no distinction between the Jew and the Greek, for the same Lord is Lord of all, who richly blesses all who call on him. 10:13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.14
and to point out the fact that
our Lord desires us to be WATCHING
for His near return.

As far as our right to vote for
President of the US of A,
It is just my "choice" to not vote
for any candidate that is on public
record of voting for the murdering
of millions of innocent lives.

If that be my cherry picked agenda,
so be it.

May Jesus Christ be your Lord and Savior My "rich friend".

God bless,

Guffer said...

Thanks for your well-meant blessings. I am a non-religious avid observer of religious people. The quote you highlighted in the passage you wrote contains this line:

13 10:12 For there is no distinction between the Jew and the Greek, for the same Lord is Lord of all, who richly blesses all who call on him.

Although I believe that all religious "bibles" are dangerous and can be quoted for all manner of good, evil, manipulative and selfish reasons surely the above "word of God" means that anyone, regardless of whether they have had an abortion or support abortion will receive his blessing if they call on him?

Does this not make fundamental Christian anti-abortionists an unnecessary indulgence?

Brother Mark said...

Dear Guffer,

Jesus Christ paid the penalty for all
mankind's SINS....past present and future. When any non-religious avid observers like yourself accept Christ's payment for their sins,
they turn away from the way of deliberate sin and murders towards God and strive to grow in grace and knowledge of His ways.
You asked, "Does this not make fundamental Christian anti-abortionists an unnecessary indulgence?"

I don't know? You might ask any of those that were killed in abortion
who are now in heaven....That's if you get there? !


May God's will be done on earth
as it is in heaven.
