“Right now, our country needs a savior,” President Trump stated during a sermon at a Dallas church the Sunday before last. “And our nation has a rescuer,” he said, “who is far higher up than him.” G.K. Chesterton noted, “The greater he is, the better he understands God.” It came after hearing something said by President Trump that reminded me of something said by Barack Obama many years ago. While competing for the United States Senate from Illinois in 2004, Barack Obama was questioned by a Chicago Sun-Times reporter, and what he disclosed about his religion was eye-opening.
For most of the interview, Obama spouted standard leftist philosophy-babble, although his understanding of sin differs from that of Dr. Anthony Fauci. Sin is anything that breaks God’s rules or, in more contemporary language, anything that isn’t in line with God’s “values” (which are the Truth). One may deduce that someone who defines sin as being out of line with his values believes he is God.
Former President Barack Obama was asked why he doesn’t pray on his knees in a recent interview, and he answered he had ongoing communication with God. Getting down on his knees isn’t official, the ex-president explained. He supposed he’s always asking himself questions about what he’s doing throughout the day, he added.
When President Obama knelt before Falsani at First Baptist Church in Charleston, South Carolina, he was putting himself in God’s place. She is confident that Obama is a classic leftist: “self-centered and solipsistic,” she adds. It is written that he has exalted himself because he feels he is superior to everyone else.
Godlessness fosters false human superiority and malignant superciliousness: individuals who don’t gaze up at God with reverence prefer to look down on His offspring with ire. Because, as C.S. Lewis put it, “pain is the megaphone God employs to reach through to deaf ears,” and trials and hardships motivate us to grow.
According to G.K. Chesterton, it becomes less prone to refer to itself as divine as humanity progresses. Everything nearing that point is only receding from it, which is a contradiction. “That is why, in an ideal world, every leader should meet the description that nearly no one else does,” said Chesterton.
