Rob Rennie | Why does everyone seem to be speaking so worship-fully of our President?
Newsweek ran a cover of Barack Obama called ‘The Second Coming,’ but this isn’t the first time he’s been deified by the media. Recently, Jamie Foxx called President Obama ‘Our Lord and Savior’ and there’s been a lot of Biblical imagery surrounding Barack Obama regarding him being some sort of Messiah figure, whether it’s him being pictured with a rainbow-colored halo around his head, or people treating him with more reverence than any other president in recent history. But the fact is, any comparison of Barack Obama to Jesus is blasphemous and should be outright rejected, no matter what side of the political spectrum you’re on. If you’ve found yourself speaking a little too reverentially of our President, I suggest you pray the following: ‘God, forgive me for putting anyone or anything above your Godhead. I’m sorry and I ask that you come into my life and show me what’s it’s like to believe in the real God.’
