    While I do my best to be accurate and pray that the Lord offers me discernment in my writing, inevitably I will be wrong on some matters. Therefore I implore anyone reading this blog to compare what I say to Holy Scripture. Don't believe me; believe the Bible!

America’s New King

Over at Crossroad.to, we find an interesting read:

There is a story in II Samuel 8 where we see Israel demanding a king. God was not sufficient for them, so they asked for a “real king.” They got an evil one — Saul.

America has been in a similar mood. We want a “king” to solve our many problems starting with the economy. So Israel said to Samuel, “Now appoint a king to lead us such as all the other nations have” (II Samuel 8:5). But all the other nations had pagan kings.

God lamented to Samuel and said, “Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.”

Two years ago came a charismatic man named Barack Obama who was engulfed in a cult-like atmosphere. Some actually called him “the messiah.” Shrines were built to him. A Web site said,“Obama is god.” [Emphasis in original]
