An African Responds to Obama and Abortion

The following letter was written by a Ugandan pastor not long after the election of President Obama. The substance of the letter is a response to Obama's signing of a law that allows funding for the killing of innocent unborn children in foreign countries. Though months old, the letter continues to represent an essential position in our public discourse regarding abortion. This letter should be read throughout the world.

The impression in our world is still growing with the election of Obama as the first black president of the USA. Almost all people have gigantic hopes that the relations of USA and other nations will begin to change to the better; but the relation of America and the unborn children has again become very bitter.

The man we have hopes in has in less than 2 weeks in office signed a law allowing funding for killing of innocent unborn children in foreign countries! This is the man and his team who claim that they will bring peace to the Middle East and stop the killing of those who have been born, some of which are innocent while others may not be innocent. He is planning for better times in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, and other parts of the world. He is looking forward to God to help him sort out these problems. When closing his inaugural speech he said: “May God bless you, God bless America” can God really bless the same hand that kills unborn babies and also tries to bring peace to these affected areas of the world? Can bitter water and sweet water come from the same spring?

For the last 50 years or more America has killed over 50 million unborn children and influenced other countries to do so in a number that is not specified.

The American hand is more brutal than the hand of Pharaoh of Egypt when Moses the servant of the Lord was born; worse than the hand of Herod when Jesus was born; worse than the hand of Nero when the church of Jesus was being born, worse than the hand of Adolph Hitler when the nation of Israel was being born. Hitler killed 6 million Jews but America has killed about 100 million children in a few decades.
They are worse than the hand of Idi Amin of Uganda against Christians; or Intarahamwe who championed genocide in Rwanda, and further worse than LRA who has killed a few hundreds of thousands in the north of Uganda.

On the judgment day when God calls out all murderers to account for their deeds, all these groups with all their schemes will stand up to give account of what they did to KILL these innocent people.

President Obama must stop heaping sins on top of the big hills of sins already created by his predecessors, but must immediately reverse what he did. This is repentance! America’s sins can no longer hide from any person including unborn children. They are tall enough for someone in the valley to see. The twin towers destroyed during 9/11 where physical images of America’s political and idolatrous sins. But God judged them in such a bitter way during the Bush’s administration. THEREFORE WE SHOULD NOT RE-BUILD THEM AGAIN.

What threat does the White House foresee from the unborn baby as it does the nuclear program of Iran or the economic program of China? If it is true that the unborn child is an enemy of America as some nations are; and Mr. Obama emphasized that he would take a diplomatic approach to win his enemies over to healthy relations with America, is killing the unborn “enemy” a diplomatic approach?

Remember that the credit crunch is the hand of the Lord shaking us and attacking our pride. Therefore the wrath of the Lord cannot rest from humiliating us if we refuse to humble ourselves on issues that are clear ethically, morally and theologically.
Just stop and think if one or both of the two little girls of Obama had been killed before they were born, how different would be the world (home) of Obama, especially now in the White House. The two little girls speak a powerful message to the largest percentage of people around the world than what Obama and Michele say; we have to discover this.

May God open our eyes to see these things very clearly and turn away from these sins!

Andy Stanley and the “NEW Hermeneutic”

The problem of faith and reason is longstanding in the history of theology. Augustine held that faith aids reason (credo ut intelligam) and that reason aids faith (intelligo un creadam). The church father is, however, inclined to stress the later over the former. It was with Thomas Aquinas, and his Summa Theologica, that the effort to reconcile faith and reason reached its apex. Rejecting the medieval doctrine of double truth, he placed natural reason prior to faith in effectively every area of the Christian life. The restrictions are the mysteries of the faith that reason cannot penetrate.
Thomas’ affirmation of the high role of native reason in Christian belief is linked to his stress on dialectical method in study, seminally set forth by Peter Abelard. The form of study is dependent largely on logic to argue both sides of a theological question. Christian belief is thus the proper result of process or synthesis. Faith then assents to the final proposition arrived at by reason.

Pat Robertson is Warned!

Pat Robertson is taking it on the chin again. Seems each time he opines on why bad things happen to us, there is someone to call him on it.
Most recently, Dr. Richard Mouw has taken up the challenge in response to Robertson's recent statement on the Las Vegas shooting, in which at least 59 people were killed and more than 500 were wounded in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
In a piece, titled, "You've Been Warned, PatRobertson!" Mouw, for whom I have deep respect, pens,

"It didn’t take long for some preachers to start telling us why God caused the horrible mass murder in Las Vegas to happen. Pat Robertson led the way, declaring that it was divine retribution for the widespread 'disrespect' for Donald Trump in America."
If Robertson had limited his rationale for the Vegas shooting to God punishing us for people dissing the President, I'd be smacking him on the chin myself. But he didn't.

Is Our Knowledge of God Analogical of Univocal?

As a matter of first principles in apologetics, we can ask, “What does the unbeliever know about God?” However, the biblical apologetic is shaped not only by what Scripture says the unbeliever knows, but also by what it reveals he can know; is capable of knowing, as a believer. So we might also ask, “Is it our hope that the unbeliever can know God as God knows himself or that he can know God reflectively, in a creaturely way?” This is the univocal/analogical problem in Christian epistemology. 

The question arises in the context of the structure of human thought. It bears its own unique dilemma. If we stress too excessively that knowledge of God is univocal we run the risk of lowering the incomprehensible God to the level of the finite and make God as one of us. But if we stress too emphatically knowledge of God per analogiam we may very well deprive God of all likeness to the humanity he has created with the result that all we are left with is a barren, abstraction.
