President Obama praises his volunteers for doing ‘God’s work’

Last Tuesday, during a speech in front of Organizing for Action officials and volunteers, President Obama told the group not be discouraged by partisan bickering because their work is divinely inspired:

Organizing for Action is essentially President Obama’s personal political arm, and he sought to mobilize the group ahead of the March 31 Obamacare deadline. According to Politico, about 4 million people have signed up for private healthcare plans under Obamacare, and the President used the speech to urge his supporters to help enroll as many people as possible before March 31.

“It’s hard work, but it’s God’s work to get his agenda jammed through,” Pat joked.

You may recall back in 2009 when Newsweek’s Evan Thomas likened President Obama to a “sort of God” during an appearance on Chris Matthew’s Hardball:

Glenn couldn’t help but question if any of these people regret casting their vote for President Obama now that they have had the chance to see his leadership (or lack thereof) in action.

“I wonder if he regrets saying that now,” Glenn pondered. “Are any of these guys going, ‘Geez, man. Boy, we’re in trouble. Boy, that was a wrong vote there, huh?’”

At least one Obama supporter seems to fall into that category. Last week, Glenn played the incredible testimony constitutional law expert and self-proclaimed Obama supporter Jonathan Turley delivered in front of a congressional hearing about the “constitutional tipping point” this country has reached.

“Jonathan Turley is a hero. He is a hero of mine. Here’s a guy who I doubt we agree with on… anything except, you know, maybe the Constitution. And that’s enough,” Glenn said. “But he says he supports the President, supports the President’s policies, just doesn’t support the way he’s doing all of them. And he’s ringing the warning bell. And yet, again, I haven’t heard anybody talk about him… Have you heard any Republican even go, ‘Hey, maybe we should listen to the constitutional scholars here who are saying that we’re at a constitutional tipping point?’”

    Re: ‘Hey, maybe we should listen to the constitutional scholars here who are saying that we’re at a constitutional tipping point?’”

    Good idea, but don’t listen to the ones who are pushing for an Article V Constitutional Convention. You can’t defend the Constitution if you haven’t read it and don’t understand it’s principles, you will only continue to get played as dupes by these charlatans.

    Please read Publius Huldah’s article on the extreme dangers of holding an Article V Convention and the lies being put forth to advance it.

    Glenn, Jonathan Turley is no hero. He’s not one of mine nor should he be one of yours. This hero of yours would most likely vote for Obamao a third time if he ever got the chance. He already voted for the swine twice. It’s a little too late to do the right thing now.

      He wouldn’t because it would be unconstitutional. Mr. Turley may like Obama’s policies, but he made it clear that Obama had crossed the line and that the Legislature and the Supreme Court needed to get their act in gear and do something about it because we had a Constitutional crisis. He loves the Constitution more than Obama, which is good.

      Jesus was the first Marxist.

      Mark 10:21-22 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

        Jesus said.. “Give”.. He said nothing about the government taking.. Give.. as in from the heart… and I do that.. I don’t need the government taking to line their own pockets… that is stealing.. and we all know what Jesus said about stealing.. don’t we?

            2 Thessalonians 3:6-15—–6 In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, 8 nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. 9 We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to make ourselves a model for you to follow. 10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” 11 We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies. 12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat. 13 And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right. 14 If anyone does not obey our instruction in this letter, take special note of him. Do not associate with him, in order that he may feel ashamed. 15 Yet do not regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.

            blue, when was the last time you rendered anything to God? Hey, it’s your quote.
            You give Him your life? That’s the 1st step. You quoted Yeshua, so how about this quote from John 3, “You must be born again.”

            Inspired by the Spirit of Yeshua, Paul adds

            Romans 12:1
            I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.

            Have you done that? You render your life to God? No? Here is another quote from Jesus that tells us why you are holding out.

            John 3:19
            The [basis of the] judgment (indictment, the test by which men are judged, the ground for the sentence) lies in this: * the Light has come into the world, and people have loved the darkness rather than and more than the Light, for their works (deeds) were evil.* [ * added for emphasis]

            What was Jesus getting at with the rich man you 1st brought up?

            21 And Jesus, looking upon him, loved him, and He said to him, You lack one thing; go and sell all you have and give [the money] to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come [and] accompany Me walking the same road that I walk].
            22 At that saying the man’s countenance fell and was gloomy, and he went away grieved and sorrowing, for he was holding great possessions.
            23 And Jesus looked around and said to His disciples, With what difficulty will those who possess wealth and keep on holding it enter the kingdom of God!
            24 And the disciples were amazed and bewildered and perplexed at His words. But Jesus said to them again, Children, how hard it is for those who trust (place their confidence, their sense of safety) in riches to enter the kingdom of God!

            Note verse 21. Yeshua was talking about holding the man’s wealth, a monkey’s hand in cookie jar thing.
            His point was about this one man, not every rich person.
            It’s “those who trust (place their confidence, their sense of safety) in riches…” rather than in our Creator that Jesus was emphasizing.
            The rich man who lent Yeshua a tomb was not told to give away all his riches. People of means supported His ministry. He never told them to or told them to give it away.
            Bert30, great points!!

          BlueMN is just going to quote scripture that he doesn’t know the context to. He is probably just pulling them from a commy web site.

          His purpose is only to try to stump you. He is like the pharisees that tried to get Jesus to stumble in his words.

        If Jesus was the first Marxist, then why is it that Marxist societies always reject his church as well as his teachings?

        Hint: Jesus’s teachings and Marxism are fundamentally different.

      • Mike Nelson

        An obtuse observation, at best.

        This was not an instruction or doctrinal requirement (as it is in fact bureaucratized and enforced with Marxism); it was a lesson for a single man, based on his pursuits in life, as compared to the reward he sought. Jesus didn’t raise all of the dead, either, but grated salvation to the criminal who praised him on the cross, even as the other cursed him for not saving them all.

        The lesson is that you cannot buy salvation, and unless you are willing to let go of what is important to the human you are here, then you are not yet ready to let go of what is important to the human you are here.

        You wouldn’t classify the man who kills a murderer in the act as a murderer himself, would you? Some would/do… but do you?

      • Connor

        but if you read after words Jesus said after his Disciples wondering why he said these things to the Rich man and It had nothing to do with him being rich.

        Mark 10 26-31

        And they were greatly astonished, saying among themselves, “Who then can be saved?”

        But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”

        Then Peter began to say to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You.”

        So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

        As you can see it had nothing to do with him being Rich but his refusal to give up all and follow God when he was called to do so.

        Dietrich Bonhoeffer a famous Theologian said this about the Rich man and his story in his book Cost of Discipleship.

        “If, as we read our Bibles, we heard Jesus speaking to us in this way today we should probably try to argue ourselves out of it like this: “It is true that the demand of Jesus is definite enough, but I have to remember that he never expects us to take his commands legalistically. What he really wants me to have is faith. But my faith is not necessarily tied up with riches or poverty or anything of the kind. We may be both poor and rich in the spirit. It is not important that I should have no possessions, but if I do I must keep them as though I had them not, in other words I must cultivate a spirit of inward detachment, so that my heart is not in my possessions.” Jesus may have said: “Sell thy goods,” but he meant: “Do not let it be a matter of consequence to you that you have outward prosperity; rather keep your goods quietly, having them as if you had them not. Let not your heart be in your goods.”—We are excusing ourselves from single-minded obedience to the word of Jesus on the pretext of legalism and a supposed preference for an obedience “in faith.” The difference between ourselves and the rich young man is that he was not allowed to solace his regrets by saying: “Never mind what Jesus says, I can still hold on to my riches, but in a spirit of inner detachment. Despite my inadequacy I can take comfort in the thought that God has forgiven me my sins and can have fellowship with Christ in faith.” But no, he went away sorrowful. Because he would not obey, he could not believe. In this the young man was quite honest. He went away from Jesus and indeed this honesty had more promise than any apparent communion with Jesus based on disobedience.”

        Why do you liberals forget context matters?

      • Sam Fox

        blue, out of context are we? How many rich peeps Yeshua meet? Lots. How many he say that to? One or 2. Did He tell Zacchaeus to give his $$ away? Nope. Zac did that of his own free will, voluntarily.

        So, show us where Yeshua ever said that govt should take most of our income & give it way n? Charity is an individual matter.
        Where did He ever say it’s OK for govt to control every aspect of our lives? That’s the ‘progressive’ end game. No, He came so we could be influenced & directed by the Holy Spirit of Elohim.

    Oh and if you’re asking yourselves what would Jesus do to this government replacing Jesus with themselves I think this would be the scene and at this point we should try.

      Connor, the govt is in the hands of AC agents IMO. When they try to take Father’s place by providing all our needs & commanding us how to live, they are anti-Christ. When they step between people & their lives, push God aside & get them dependent on govt welfare, they are AC.
      Anti-Christ: opposing Christ in the guise of Christ.
      NOT saying 0 is the AC. I don’t think he is. But 0 & his cabal are surely one of it’s group of agents.

    Because Obama and his policies are not the policies of the Lord, then he is not doing it in the Lord’s way, therefore, his policies, and his programs are not the work of the Lord. It was the adversary who wanted to take agency away from man and to force everyone to be good. I think that sounds more like Obama’s way, than the Lord’s way.
