Obama… He Did a Line Item Veto on God’s Law

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 18-05-2012

I did not realize that a sitting President could do a line item veto on God’s law, but evidently I was wrong….But now it is apparently alright for same sex people to marry. changing God’s law.  ” Man should not lie with another man”, God said. Obama said, we need to get into the 21st Century and let the same sex people marry if they so desire. It is the right thing to do, he says. So now, what about some of the other laws Mr. President…..How about God saying to put “No other God’s before Me?”  You gonna veto that one. There are a whole bunch of “other God’s” out there…What are you gonna do on that?….Well, I just wondered…..My, my, times are a’changing…Pete Hester

Update:  I was kind of talking to God the other day about the sins of these same sex folks and I kind of heard this voice say, “Let’s talk about your sins, Pete.” …..Well, he is right of course….. I need to worry about the plank in my eyes before I start worrying about the speck in yours….Pete

I want to comment on my own post…Please understand that I am not, repeat am NOT, judging folks…That is between them and God. But I was raised that the Bible was the truth, the whole truth and some things just come out of me. But I have kin that are caught up in some things and while I don’t agree with them they are still kin and I still love them. So, my kin, if you read me you kind’a know how I am too, huh?…And I hope you still love me also….Pete Hester

Sure! I love you and will always love you. I just don’t love our king who trashes the Constitution and the People’s Congress and a Media who does obeisance to their lord almighty as he does it. At any rate, I loved voting against the king in the Arkansas primary on Tuesday, May 22. I loved it so much that I early voted. I’m looking forward to doing it again in November. Remember! The king only thinks that he did a line item veto on God’s law.

Separation of church and state! Very important. Not everyone lives by your “God’s law”. But, everyone in the United States should have equal rights. The Constitution cannot be changed to be in line with your God’s law.

Thanks Suzanne….You are right..What I think is not important at all. To me, what God thinks is the only thing that matters. And in a few years, I certainly don’t know how long, both of us will kneel before Him, whether you believe it now or not. I appreciate you visiting my web site and especially commenting on the post. God Bless you…Pete Hester

Separation of church and state is really a misnomer. There is really no such thing. Nowhere is the constitution is it demanded explicitly. The constitution became interpreted to mean the separation of church and state both in the 18th century and in all the years following because the people were not ready for anything else. The rank and file members of the church were no more ready to rule themselves than the sophisticated, educated church or political leaders of that day or now.

If there is really a God who is omnipotent, omniscent, and omnipresent, then this God is not going to share his power with any kind of self-appointed or elected church or political leaders of any stripe. Those who take the separation of church and state as a doctrine and develop it to an extreme are really only denying God, denying their own Maker, therefore denying their own selfhood to the point of setting themselves up as a little god, which is really what an atheist is. No other definition of an atheist is possible.

The separation of church and state is not the answer any more than the total integration of church and state is the answer. It all boils down to whether or not one believes in God totally as the one true God, or that one believes in himself (or herself) as a little god incapable of doing anything other than strutting and fretting his (or her) time upon the stage of earthern living, accomplishing nothing and, in the end, dying and diving into the vast sea of forgetfulness.

Well said….Thanks Errol..

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s law. I have learned a great deal from you, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend homosexuality, for example, I will simply remind him or her that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other laws in Leviticus and Exodus and how to best follow them.

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Leviticus 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. How should I deal with this?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as stated in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Leviticus 15:19-24). The problem is, how can I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Leviticus 25:44 states that I may buy slaves from the nations that are around us. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine says that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Leviticus 10:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?

Leviticus 20:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

Cleary as you were rasied that the Bible was the truth you must deal with these types of issues everyday – I await your reply.

yeah, I can see where you are going. Just do the best you can, use your own good judgement and pray for guidance in all you do. You really know the answer to those questions better than I do. Trust and obey, there is no other way…..Do the best you can son, do the very best you can…..

I don’t understand your response…..aren’t we to follow the bible to the letter? Or can we pick and choose the sections with which to adhere?

No, we are to trust Jesus to cover the sins you and I commit. We live under Grace now, but we have to accept Jesus and follow Him to the best of our abilities. I will not argue with you. I see your IP is from the United Kingdom and your culture and mine may differ somewhat, but both our bibles read the same in English and I can tell you to are trying to push me to say something about the Old Testiment. I will not, accept to say we now live under Grace and the old laws, while still in effect, is there to give us guidance. But somehow, I think you know all that…I am a simple servant of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I will know all the answers in His time. I cannot answer your questions, you know that, but I hope you will continue to visit my site and tolerate my views. Thank you for your interest…Pete Hester

Excellent answer, Pete! I would like to add only one thing. Jesus explicitly said that he came to fulfill the law and the prophets, not merely to obey and to teach it. No Christian or Church specifically obeys all the laws and commandments which are mentioned in the Old Testament because the sacrifice and death of Jesus on the Cross of Calvary no longer made it essential. Jesus replaced the law and the prophets with love and respect for neighbor and God. Remember the Greatest Commandment! Love thy neighbor as thyself, and love God. I hope that the writer is not an Orthodox Jewish person because that means he does not believe as the Christian does concerning Jesus Christ, but this is the Christian perspective.

I may have it backward. The greatest commandment is to love God as He loved us, and the second greatest is to love thy neighbor as we love ourselves. At any rate, these two commandments replaces and fulfulls all the law and the prophets. It made most of them unnecessary.

Again, well said Errol. Thanks for your response…

My questions is how in your infinite wisdom do you know which “laws” were made unnecessary? It would appear you feel most if not all were – and if Jesus’s greatest dictate was “Love they neighbor as you love thyself”, would he be against gay marriage?

PS – I am a christian BTW

Tim, there are a couple of ways I can learn what to do and what not to do. I can learn through education or reading of those things or I can do them and find out on my own about things that are good and bad. All the laws are necessary so you and I know what is wrong or sinful and what is ok to do. Now, when we both know something is wrong or something we are told not to do and we go ahead and do it….well, then we have to ask God to forgive us for that sin and He will…..time and time again he forgives us..He said that man aught not lie with another man, not me saying that, so if a person does commit that sin then he must ask God to forgive him for the sin. It not me that you or anyone else should be concerned about…I am just the messenger….God loves you, Tim and I am trying. God will never forsake you, but I might and then again, maybe I can hang on also. Your discussions are with me right now, but maybe you should visit with God about it…God bless you..Pete ps You say you are a Christian and I believe you….God loves and can forgives all sinners

The Christian knows which laws to obey by following the infinite wisdom of Jesus Christ, not by being a nitpicker, picking which laws to obey and those not to obey. Only Jesus Christ can decide which laws to obey as well as how the Christian should live in order to follow Him and to enter Heaven. He gave us the Greatest commandment as well as the Second Greatest both of which were stated earlier. These two commandments supersede all the commandments of the Old Testament.

As far as gay marriage is concerned, Christian marriage is made in Heaven only for earthern folk. It is a bond devised in Heaven as a relationship and an institution which is best to enable reproduction and development of human progeny on this earth in a Christian environment in order to nourish and direct that progeny to the feet of Jesus Christ and the Father in Heaven at the final consummation of all things. There is no marriage in Heaven. Jesus said so. If gay marriage is the best relationship to encourage the development and raising of human progeny, then Jesus would be for it. I can’t see how it is even possible to raise human progeny within a gay marriage, much less to guide and nourish and develop that progeny to the final destination at the feet of Jesus Christ. If it can be done, then perhaps Jesus would be for it, but lets not put words into the mouth of Jesus because He never mentioned using a gay relationship for that purpose.
