Obama - not Christ, not Anti-Christ

I have been watching and feeling the vibe of people in America, both from the Republicans and Democrats and I must say there is a feeling I get that one group almost feels that Obama is the Christ (the anointed one to set us free from all our troubles) and the other group feels that Obama is the anti-Christ (the deceiver, who has come to overthrow all things good).

Both these extremes are just plain goofy if you ask me! Obama is neither the Christ or the anti-Christ! I think some of the religious crowd have read way too many of the Left Behind books and think that Obama is Nicoli Carpathia.

And for those who feel that Obama is the Christ are putting their hope in the wrong thing (person), our hope should be in Jesus Christ, the ruler of all – the true deliverer! Our hope should never be in Government to fix all our woes … we should look to Christ. I do not have time to teach on it here, but I see so many Biblical correlations here it’s eerie. Just one; The children of Israel were delivered by God through Moses, who was a servant of God, not a King, not a politician, not a Governor ... but a man who submitted his will to God's will.

There is nothing wrong with government as an entity or as a governing body (as a whole), but to make it, or the people who serve within it into god-like figures is wrong.

So, I guess I am issuing a warning here to both groups:

Jeremiah 17:5-8
This is what the LORD says:
"Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
who depends on flesh for his strength and
whose heart turns away from the LORD.
He will be like a bush in the wastelands;
he will not see prosperity when it comes.
He will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
in a salt land where no one lives.
"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought and
never fails to bear fruit."
