American Christians, Obama et al.,
Long Defying Their Professed Savior Jesus

‘When you bombed these brothers and sisters of mine,, you bombed me,’’ says Jesus in Matthew chapter 25, (paraphrased of course). Obama, as presidents before him, follows the instructions of his promoters, the ruling investors, and disregarding the teaching and warnings of his “personal savior,” gives to the rich at home, bombs abroad to be able to take from the poor everywhere, and lies that this is necessary and good.
‘When you bombed these brothers and sisters of mine, you bombed me,’ says Jesus in Matthew chapter 25 [paraphrased] (scroll three paragraphs down)..

(Interesting it is that 99% of America's priests and ministers appear to abdicate all responsibility to use their moral authority to condemn and protest.)
Assuming these U.S. presidents believed in Jesus’ promise of condemnation on Judgment Day, perhaps, figuring there is safety in numbers, they have sought to take all Americans along with them by stating that they bomb in the name and authority of all Americans.
In a most horrible way, U.S. presidents and the powerful elite they represented, have sought to make goats of their fellow Americans that will place them to the left, separated from the sheep according to
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations [including America] will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep
from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
Matthew Chapter 25
But even before the time of Jesus, there was the Golden Rule:
‘Do unto others as you would have done unto you.’
and there was the corollary:
‘Those who live by the sword will die by the sword.’
Jesus offered an even more severe punishment for those who would go against these principles, more recently enshrined at the Nuremberg Trials, namely, eternal damnation.
Is America’s answer to all of the above:
‘why me worry? - why us worry?’
This writer happened to hear a televised sermon by America’s most popular evangelist, in which he addressed people of habitual belligerent arrogant behavior, “Do me a favor, don’t put that bumper sticker on your car that reads, “Jesus is My Savior.”
Mr. President, do us a favor, don’t say “Jesus is My Savior.” You have already ordered bombing in six countries without air defenses and favor predatory investments by the wealthy at expense of the poor.
