Obama Vs. Keyes

If you haven't seen this, it's worth the watch. Go Keyes.

Spoiler: Keyes lost

And for the exact reason Obama gave. They were running for the Senate, not minister of the state.

Please tell me you're not one of the loons thinking Obama is a secret Muslim.

This was really great! Thanks for posting this Trish! Go Keyes! :-)

Azou said...

Go Keyes what? This is a six-year-old video from a debate for an election that Keyes LOST. I wouldn't expect some dramatic Keyes victory in the political arena to come about any time soon.

Not to mention he kicked his daughter out at only 19 because of her coming out. Family values!

"Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.

"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

For I have come to turn
" 'a man against his father,
a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law - a man's enemies will be the members of his own household.'

"Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

Azou, how much proof do you need to prove to you Obama is either a Muslim or at the very least an apologist for Islam? The Bible tells us we can know someone by the fruit they show and so far Obama's fruit point to him being a Muslim.

Azou said...

Point to the evidence, Nelson. So far as I can tell, the man was in a Christian Church for a good many years, and I've seen nothing to suggest he's Muslim.

An apologist for Islam? Seriously? Obama might defend the religion when applicable (the center in New York), but that's hardly being an apologist.

What does Obama need to do? Erect a theocracy for your ilk?

Psalms 37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of judgement. The foolish of this world have a bullseye mark on them and it is one of no escape. Except the cross of Jesus Christ. Sinners be warned, vengeance is mine says The Lord.

President Obama-"If I had the opportunity to talk to Jesus Christ, I'd be asking something much more important than this senate race....I would want to know whether I was going up, or down...".

Mr. President, you do have the opportunity to speak to Him...what you lack is the humility which, in itself, answers the "up or down" question.

Bravo Mr. Keyes!

Phil Morgan said...

Thank God for a politician who is willing to speak frankly and openly about his faith in spite of whether it means he wins or loses. As he so rightly points out, our faith is an integral and shaping core of who we are or it is meaningless. And the idea that a person losing an electoral race in itself proves or disproves the truth of what he has said, or even whether or not he would truly be the best candidate, is shallow indeed. It probably says more about the electorate than the candidate. Nice job Mr. Keyes.

If the President's 'Christian Faith' is so important to him, why would he need to ask Jesus if he's going 'up or down'? Wouldn't he already know the answer to that question if he was actually a Christ-following, Bible-believing Christian? Speaks volumes.

I was astounded at how outspoken Keyes was. Thanks for sharing this; I'd never seen it.

Thank you so much for posting this. I'm glad to have found you, Trish. It has been a blessing to read through your blog. If I repost this from Youtube, I'll link back here.

Azou~ I realize you don't believe in Obama's muslim-apologist-antics & require 'proof.' Why not come by my blog & do a search for "Obama Muslim." You'll find the 'proof' you so blindly cannot see on your own.

Pastor Phil~ "the idea that a person losing an electoral race in itself proves or disproves the truth of what he has said...is shallow indeed. It probably says more about the electorate than the candidate."
Exactly. Well said, Pastor Phil.
