Obama and Strong Delusions

On one of my Facebook pages this morning I had a post from a group which referenced a passage from 2 Thessalonians 11 – 13. I am not sure what message the poster wanted to convey, but I certainly think it is relevant to the situation in US politics today.The passage reads as follows:

11Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, 12 so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God chose you from the beginning to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. – RSV

If you read the whole chapter, it is talking about the end times and what will happen leading up to them. I have not come up with an opinion on this either way, whether we are nearing the end or not, but I do believe there are those out there who are trying (and succeeding) to make others believe what is false.

Look at the stories dealing with the uprisings in the Middle East. Are they due to a You Tube video which no one has seen or were they part of a coordinated terrorist attack?  We are unable to get any straight answers from the White House on any of the incidents as none of the minions seem to be on the same page.

Whether or not you believe all things ultimately come from and are controlled by God, you certainly should be questioning why the lies and deceit from this administration, especially when it comes to the nation of Islam. Are they trying to hide something?

One thought on “Obama and Strong Delusions

  1. I am fairly certain after having lived for 74 years that many government administrations have had their share of confusion. I find that it is more reasonable for me to refuse to enter into accusing the government of being untruthful until I can claim the education, experience and qualifications to speak with authority on such matters. Being an ordinary citizen, I do not feel I am close enough to the situation or that I have the necessary privileged information to render an accurate judgement on these issues. It is not good to enter into speculations just because a lot of others who may have their own issues are inclined to do.

    By the way – – – Christians do indeed believe that God controls all things (Except the free will). They most especially believe that it is God who ordains those who rule over us – – our leaders – – our elected officials – – The Bible says that God has put them all in their places and that we are to submit ourselves to their authority.

    Christians must learn that their “Kingdom” is not of this world but that they are seeking a better place and that the concerns of this present world should not cause them stress. The Bible actually addresses these things.

    Ask, seek and knock — and the door will be opened unto you.
