For those of you who attended GCCC through this past election (2012), I need not tell you that I showed this President, Barak Obama, upmost respect – and I will continue to do so.  I pray for him EVERY Monday – Saturday.  My prayer is specific, that he would “govern in righteousness and walk in the fear of the LORD,” which is the beginning of wisdom.  I also have rebuked those who have written and spoken disrespectfully of him.

With that said, as believers we must “obey God rather than men.”  What do I mean by that?  We can respect a person and their position of authority, but not approve of what they do.  e.g.: Daniel showed great respect to Nebuchadnezzar, addressing him with these words: “My lord, if only the dream applied to your enemies and its meaning to your adversaries! … Therefore, O king, be pleased to accept my advice: Renounce your sins by doing what is right, and your wickedness …” (Daniel 4).

I admire this President’s concern for the less fortunate and believe it is that of our Heavenly Father.  However, I also believe that he errs greatly in endorsing and approving of homosexuality and abortion.  His recent endorsements of Planned Parenthood and Same Sex Marriage are in direct opposition to God’s heart and His word.  It’s a scary thing to approve of and endorse sin, and that is what abortion and homosexuality is – sin.

I am not saying that any of us are without sin; certainly I am not without sin.  However, it is one thing to struggle with sin knowing that it is wrong and seeking to put it away, it’s still another thing to justify, endorse and approve of sin.  We are, as Christ followers, called to love the sinner and hate sin.  We can respect and love a person without approving of their sinful behavior.  When this Presidency approves and legislates morality, more specifically sin, it opens the door and leads the way for wickedness to reign supreme.  Scripture says, “When the wicked take charge, people go into hiding. When the wicked meet disaster, the godly flourish” (Proverbs 28:28). By licensing sin, this administration gives rise to ungodly behavior, which brings disgrace and ultimately ruin.  God's word tells us, Doing what is right makes a nation great, but sin will bring disgrace to any people” (Proverbs 14:34 ).

Please pray that our President and our Congressional leaders (both House and Senate) will have a change of heart in these matters that God calls sin.  Let's stand upon this prayer-promise that has no dispensation limiting it: ”If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  (2 Chronicles 7:14).
