28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?
31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
34 ¶ Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?
35 To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
“Voting is the best revenge.”–Barack Obama
I quote the President in the broader Biblical context because BHO has claimed Christianity. It’s one thing to screw up and be vengeful; that is sin. It’s another to be caught up in a moment, and blurt something, as I’m sure apologists will contend.
It’s quite another to actively encourage others to sin, for a Christian. I should hope that the good President would repent of his remark, and do so publicly.
Not holding my breath. Also, hoping nobody asks me for my opinion of the state of BHO’s Christianity, as I’m not a qualified judge. Also escaping certainty; that the fuller context offered from Deuteronomy here relates at all to Obama’s supporters. I’m just pointing out some dots; you’re free to connect as desired.
