What Do Your Associates Reveal about You?

That’s a question that can be asked of any of us. As a Christian, I know I’m supposed to reach out to everyone. Jesus was criticized by the Pharisees for spending time with sinners. Please know that I understand that. I preface the rest of this post with those words because it’s possible some may think me a hypocrite by what I am about to say.

But keep this in mind: there’s a big difference between associating with nonchristians for the purpose of bringing them into the kingdom and finding common cause with sinners for carrying out your goals. I will speak with anyone, at any time, who is spiritually lost and seeking truth. I will not choose the spiritually lost who espouse radical ideas to help me accomplish my goals.

That said, let me continue.

I believe we can know Obama by the friends he chooses. We can know his plans and ideas not only by listening to him directly, but also by seeing whom he places in positions of authority in his administration. In fact, that might be a better indication of where he is trying to take the country than merely listening to what he says. Deeds speak louder than politically soothing words.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, this picture may look familiar. This man is John Holdren, Obama’s key science advisor. I spent some time last week critiquing his radical ideas. To review those, go to the July 22nd posting.

Today, more information came out about him. In another book he coauthored with radical Paul Ehrlich, Holdren commented,

The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being.

Yes, you read that correctly. Not only was Holdren denying that a fetus is a human being, but he was not willing to call a young child, in its early years, a human being either. It depended on the type of socialization and nourishment the child received. That is a chilling statement. The entire article is worth reading. You can find it here.

Recently, Obama selected a “green czar.” I think that’s czar number 40, or something like that. His name is Van Jones. You can see him here next to Obama’s picture. You can also see his book, The Green Collar Economy. Just who is Van Jones? Would you believe he is a self-avowed communist? He also has a history as a Black Nationalist. He is radical in every sense of the word, and he’s now tasked with creating green collar jobs in America.

I won’t fill up this space with a lot of information about him, but if you’re curious to learn more, check out this article, and this one.

What we are experiencing is an attempt to remake America into Obama’s image. This is the most radical attempt ever made, surpassing anything FDR of LBJ ever dreamed of doing. My hope is that enough people will wake up to what’s happening before it’s too late.

And Christians, let me add this: if you voted for Obama, and you still don’t see anything wrong with the direction in which he’s leading this country, it’s time to work on that renewed mind that the Lord wants you to possess. Stop being molded into the world’s ways of thinking and be willing to submit all of your cherished notions to the truths of God’s Word. The new order that he is creating will only come back to attack you eventually. It’s time to join with your brothers and sisters who have been sounding the warning for many months. You will be welcomed to the good fight.
