Obama's Pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Thursday, March 13, 2008 11 comments

Here is a glimpse of what Obama hears at his church.
WARNING: Language

If you don't think this matters and it is only by association. Look at some of these statements made in this article. "I don't think my church is actually particularly controversial."-Sen. Obama. "Rev. Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, "The Audacity of Hope."". He has definitely impacted and influenced Obama's life.

    It is because of this guy that we still have the problems we have today. God is a God of love and not hate and all this "man of God" is doing is speaking hatred. What scares me the most are those who are just blindly following his ministry. He clearly is abusing his position as a "pastor" if you can call him that, I certainly do not.

    This man is not a pastor of God. 2 Chronicles 7:14 makes it clear that a pastor of God should be calling upon his congregation to pray to God for their country, not to damn their country.

    When I last led intercessions in a large Evangelical congregation - not my own - and linked terrorism to British foreign policy there was almost a standing ovation.

    It seems to me to be self-evident.

    And in the British press only yesterday: "Should we speak to Al Quieda?"

    Is there a politics and religion shouldn't mix sub-text going on here? Jesus was the most overtly political person.

    Jeremiah Wright fits very nicely within the tradition of the prophets of the Olt Testament who told their generations where they had got it wrong. I don't doubt that there were those in their time who castigated them for their stance. Their inclusion in the canon of scripture gives them the last laugh on that one.

    Doorman-Priest,

    Your comments are mixing fact and Islamic propaganda. Yes British foreign policy messed up Afghanistan. But it did help restore Jews to their rightful land.

    As far as Jeremiah Wright, he is nothing like O.T. prophets. Wright is wrong. His accusations are one of a race based agenda and not of God.

    What Islamic propaganda would that be then?

    The creation of the State of Israel is outside of my time frame. I was thinking more of the the last five years with our disasterous partnership in Iraq.

    Those involved in 7/7 and subsequent attempts at terrorism here have made it perfectly clear that their motivation is linked to our military adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan

    the first video is no longer available on you tube, so I couldnt watch it, however I am aware of the situation.

    Anonymous, your right, and wrong. God is a God of love, but He is also a God of Hate.

    To touch on the Iraq topic, it is important to remember that while some may agree and others disagree, God is in control.

    While I believe in free will, I also believe that God would not allow something if it were not part of His ultimate will. The happenings in our world, and in the heavens is all under God's control. (1 Chronicles 29:11&12)

  • Doorman-Priest March 17, 2008 at 11:18 AM
     

    Then it's not really free will is it? It's a tough one.

    I would say that Wright is a bit paranoid. His focus in those clips is on the negative and not the positive. Are there any positive clips of him or are we only interested in digging dirt?
    It's good to know that he is a bit, how shall I put this, um, overzealous.
    But it would be nice to see another side of him.

    Love and hate. What do they really mean?

    I'm sure he has had some very good messages. Maybe even some biblically based messages, but the problem is, I could never reccomend that anyone learn under a Pastor if even every tenth message is along these lines. Teach the whole bible and nothing but the Bible and you've go my vote.

  • Doorman-Priest March 19, 2008 at 1:23 PM
     

    "Teach the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible"

    What does that actually mean? Can one teach the whole Bible and be consistent? Where Old and New Testaments are in conflict which part do we go with?

    Do we teach the Bible as literal truth? Assuming a yes answer, always? In every case?

    Do we teach Jesus' Christianity or Paul's Christianity?

    What exactly does it mean to be a Bible based Christian in practice.

    I'm not trying to be funny here, but surely its a matter of interpretation: one person's whole Bible is another's Iran. I've met those Christians.

    How about the Phelps clan from Topeka? Are they, as they claim, living by the Bible? If so, how? If not, how?
