                                           Accepted

 Awoke to my FaceBook page and on it was a picture of President Obama’s student ID when he attended Columbia University in nineteen eighty one. It had a subheading that read, “Foreign Student”. I wondered why it was posted and what it should mean to me, and or whether it was correct. Did it really matter? Obama has been in office for one and a half terms and he still has opposition to his presidency.

         Although I share his ethnicity, being bi-racial, I am neither for him nor against he. I am a Christian and scripture states that I am to pray for all those in authority.  I believe that the office of president is one of authority and deserves to be prayed for. The one thing that I can say about Obama is that he has not allowed the un-acceptance of some to limit his mission.

      In Christ my mission is to share His love and acceptance. His acceptance has strength beyond any rejection. And it is by His wounds that I am healed of all rejection. My pray is for His love to abound in me to overflowing, so as the world may see He clearly, meeting the needs of those I have rejected though lack of knowledge.

Does your place of worship provide restroom accommodations for those who identify as "transgender?" I seriously doubt it.  
Where does political correctness, uber liberalism, cross the line between ethics morals and common decency? 
Would you want your young daughter sharing a restroom with a fully adult man who identifies as transgender? Or vice versa sexes reversed?
Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton are fine with that...are you?
The world has gone mad...we have to live in it not be in agreement by virtue of offices held.
Authority can only be "given" never "taken" how many executive orders were signed by Barack Obama without the consensus of "we the people " upon which our constitution was founded or was there any vote of Congress???
Remember this...the Native Americans once owned/occupied this land, It was ruled by Britain for a time, humans were enslaved here by men of influence and standing for greed.
Without rebellion or revolution, these things would have not changed.
Scripture can be a double-edged sword.
Remember "Haman" who would not kneel to the king and Mordecai's scheme backfired?
Or how about  Daniel, Meshach, Abednego, Shadrach (would not kneel).
Or how about digging one's heels into a reluctant Ass who is only trying to avert disaster for it's master and is rewarded by harsh punishment?
It is simple to say man must abide by the authority on earth but...is it really so simple?
Or is scripture so much more complex than a single quote taken out of context...hmm?
Scripture is a "guide" The Holy Spirit is guidance readily available and accessible that abides inside.
Ink on dead trees by no means equals or super-cedes Way, Truth and life in you and I.
No more than The Law is above "Grace". 
Did not Jesus himself take a "cat ' nine tails" to the corrupted profiteerers and money changers in the
temple?
Is not what is going on here and now present day and ignored or accepted blindly in these times so much more severe?

Just as one can be sure that not a single atheist exists in hell, so too among Christians there can not exist the compliance to political correctness. There is only correct and incorrect on any answers to any exams in Heaven or on Earth. So must we examine ourselves "critically" constantly.

"Almost" or "close" count for nothing.
One must choose a side or be under-fire from arrows on both sides.

Matthew 10:34-39
Christ Brings Division
34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.  35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’;  36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’[a]  37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.  38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.  39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it."



1 Corinthians 1:17-22

17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.



Christ Crucified Is God’s Power and Wisdom


18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
    the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”[a]

20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom,

Really, sorry, you got that much out of it, it was not that complex. It was about the writing, and a simple thought of acceptance, nothing to do with trans-genger.  If you want to know the truth, I post it because I know I would get reaction as soon as I mentioned OBAMA. I pray your peace in Christ remain. God Bless

Just as you knew it would get a "reaction", so too did I suspect you were fishing for a reaction. 
I did not fall into this trap blindly, simply triggered the "trip-wire" to the snare with a twig from a safe distance hope you found what you were looking for.
The net remains empty.
Just look at how "Obama" vindictively betrayed Israel in his final days in office...went against the will of the people to do so. That is not authority from on high. Authority can only be given/granted, never usurped...not to be abused.

Was not satan present at "The Last Supper?"
In temples, churches, influencing some priests and pastors at the very altars and pulpits?
Does he not just show up uninvited as he did in the book of Job?

Authority can easily be abused...and should be questioned, tested, not followed blindly.

Jesus Sends Out the Twelve

10 Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.
These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy,[a] drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
“Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts— 10 no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep. 11 Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave. 12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting. 13 If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. 14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. 15 Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.
16 “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17 Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
21 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
24 “The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25 It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how much more the members of his household!
26 “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. 28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.[b] 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.
34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn
“‘a man against his father,
    a daughter against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
36     a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’[c]
37 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.
40 “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41 Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. 42 And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”

Wow! Remember it was not written for you, nor was it aimed at you. It was written for a magazine, trying to show a different side to Obama. Your responce is way, way too long. Please don't waste your time. You are not the only Christian and your view is not the only view. Pray for the future of America.

It wasn't written for me? I'm not the only Christian?? It wasn't aimed at me, what a revelation i'm sure that would be very comforting to the mother of a child murdered by an errant bullet in a drive by shooting??? Thank you for your concern, but it is not for you to decide what is and is not a "waste of time". Perhaps your response is way too short...much like your temper or patience with others???? 
You got chutzpah! I'll give you that...lots of passion and fire, that is a good thing...can be?! Usually?
I'm Anthony. You got a name, are you seeding or sowing, Coming or going? 
America will be just fine...now that Obama is kaput and his lackey (minions) have lost the election.

The first four lines of your post say it all "awoke to my facebook".
How is it "your facebook?" Can you explain that? Is that a figure of speech or should it be taken literally?
Hey can you spare some of this for me? " In Christ my mission is to share His love and acceptance. His acceptance has strength beyond any rejection. And it is by His wounds that I am healed of all rejection. My pray is for His love to abound in me to overflowing, so as the world may see He clearly, meeting the needs of those I have rejected though lack of knowledge."
As you must clearly see, I really could use some:)
