Obama: Biblical principles prompted me to push for Dodd-Frank and Obamacare

posted at 1:20 pm on February 2, 2012 by Tina Korbe

This morning, at the National Prayer Breakfast, Barack Obama cited Scripture as justification for his policy agenda — from reforming health care to ensuring that financial institutions play by fair rules to taxing the rich. BuzzFeed’s Zeke Miller reports:

The president said he often falls to his knees in prayer, and emphasized the role of his religious values in determining where to lead the country.

“I’d be remiss if I stopped there; if my values were limited to personal moments of prayer or private conversations with pastors or friends. So instead, I must try — imperfectly, but I must try — to make sure those values motivate me as one leader of this great nation.”

Obama maintained that his call for the wealthiest to give up their tax breaks, he’s doing so out of economic necessity, but also in line with biblical teachings.

“And I think to myself, if I’m willing to give something up as somebody who’s been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think that’s going to make economic sense. But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,’” Obama said, noting Jewish and Islamic teachings say much the same thing.

It surprises me to encounter the president using this tactic. In the first place, the specific example he cites above is misapplied. When the president establishes a policy direction — and Congress follows it — his decisions don’t just affect him. When he promotes increased taxation of “the rich,” he’s not merely giving up his own tax breaks as he implies — he’s also suggesting the government should be able to force others to pay more in taxes, as well. That’s just obvious — and to say otherwise actually makes the president look more confused than anything. Here, we seem to have an out-of-water Obama who wants very desperately to pander but doesn’t quite know how.

It’s always a bit tricky to apply Scripture to political problems. After all, Jesus made it very clear to his apostles, who expected the Messiah to win a worldly victory against their oppressors, that His kingdom is not of this world. When he directly addresses the issue of taxation, He says simply to give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to give to God what is God’s. Yes, Jesus is acutely concerned with issues of authority and also with issues of wealth and poverty — but it all proceeds from the basic assumptions that authority comes from His Father and that the spiritual, in general, has primacy over the material. That is, Jesus’ injunctions to His followers to give everything they have to the poor proceed from the idea that whatever stands in the way of loving Him has got to go. It’s about His glory, not about the creation of some utopian society. Those who make Jesus’ teachings about the latter and not the former miss the major point His life, death and resurrection make.

So of course, God’s Word must conform to their beliefs, rather than them basing their beliefs on the whole of Scripture.

infidel4life on February 2, 2012 at 2:54 PM

If you didn’t believe in God, you would assume that the people imagining him were imagining him in their own image — or possibly imagining an image described to them by someone else (and so on, a chain eventually simplifying to one person with a sketchpad). The God people would then be either (1) quacks, (2) manipulators, (3) people being manipulated (who may or may not be quacks). It seems like religious people are frequently described with 1, 2, or 3 by people who are certain of the nonexistence of God, so my speculation has that going for it.

– I think it would be natural for secular people with that point of view to pick up a Bible and use it the way you mentioned. How else would they use it?

– And they don’t seem to walk away from it with very much, either.

Axe on February 2, 2012 at 3:08 PM

Ummm … it depends on whose truth you’re talking about. The Bible offers plentiful warnings about false prophets and the differences between words and deeds.

bifidis on February 2, 2012 at 2:57 PM

I apologize, but I don’t understand the logic of the argument above. False prophets don’t teach the truth, hence they are false prophets. There is only one truth, not many. There cannot be more than one truth as the concept itself is a logical fallacy.

Matthew 6:1
Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

Matthew 6:2
“So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.

Luke 18:9-14
The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11
The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers,
adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ 13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ 14
“I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

however there is truth in positing that the early christian communities were communes, pooling their resources and “distribut[ing] to each as any had need.”( acts 4:34-37), but it was voluntary not forced by the state or an authority. this has the sheen of socialism to manipulative predatory hacks trying to conserve and amass power under the guise of being such great caring humanitarians. with obama it’s social justice and liberation theology speaking to suit his lust to stay enthroned.

what a void this creature is-his own blank slate upon which he and everyone around him embroiders, lies,projects, and obfuscates so shamelessly.

mittens on February 2, 2012 at 2:20 PM

The early church had nothing to do with communes. They didn’t give up private property, just because they voluntarily gave of their means to help those who needed it.

The attempt to label it a commune came from people trying to reinterpret an ancient text to support 19th and 20th Century political theories. The distinction that giving was always voluntary, not forced by any religious or political entity is key. But it’s also key to note that, though they showed a willingness to sacrifice their own property to help out others, they didn’t then turn around and use this charitable fund as their own source of income, as communists would have.

tom on February 2, 2012 at 3:16 PM

How does he explain his policy mandating birth control, sterilization and morning-after pills? It’s doubtful a compassionate God would advocate Obama’s position on abortion or his increased costs to seniors and the poor due to his EPA regulations on coal and his restrictive policies on the oil industry.

tom on February 2, 2012 at 3:19 PM

Many of the leaders of my church (I’m Catholic) say the same kinds of things as Obama.

They never take it to the logical conclusion, however. With their reasoning on entitlements and other issues, the following things are also true…

- God wants me to raise my neighbors’ taxes.

- God wants us to outnumber our neighbors in the voting booth as we force them into more and more inferior government programs like ObamaCare.

- God doesn’t care if we put the next generation under a crippling debt (to totalitarian China, btw)

- God doesn’t care if we make our neighbors dependent on government.

- God wants decent democracies to be militarily weaker while totalitarian nations grow militarily stronger.

I’m probably leaving a few things out, but you get the idea…

shinty on February 2, 2012 at 3:20 PM

Progressivism is the political arm of Darwinism.

Darwinists in politics need to take their worldview and fashion policy to create their “kingdom on earth”. The Darwinist/Progressive kingdom kills the unborn as “weeds”. Their religion believes that humans are just animals that need to be controlled like livestock in a pen. They also don’t believe in individual “right”. And the Darwinist Progressives believe in the arrogance of Eugenics and that a Ruling class (themselves) are the enlightened ones that must lead.

Obama will say ANYTHING.

He gave up his soul when he sold out the unborn in Illinois. When he was in the state Senate.

The president said he often falls to his knees in prayer, and emphasized the role of his religious values in determining where to lead the country.

It’s amazing that I call myself a Christian and he calls himself a Christian, but the parts of God’s Word I think are literal he thinks it’s okay to make figurative.

Just like this quote from his own lips. I don’t believe for a second this man literally falls on his knees. Same as “I will not rest” before playing golf, and his “laser-like focus on jobs” precedes his picks for March Madness. It’s all figurative to Obama, so the words–don’t–really–mean–what–most–people–think–they–mean.

tom on February 2, 2012 at 4:21 PM

Don’t know if this has been said already, but Obama wants to turn this election to religion in a big way, wants to be able to say, “Well, Mitt, I don’t know what Mormons believe, but…”

Romney’s “rich” and Romney’s “a Mormon.” That’s all Barry’s got. That is the sum total of his available smears this time around. That he is wrapping himself in the flag of Christianity is honestly one of the most crassly cynical moves I’ve ever seen a presidential candidate make. Obama is, at a minimum, an atheist. At maximum, anti-Christian. But in either case, he’s banking on anti-Mormon bigotry. It won’t work. I hope Romney lets him have it sooner or later for “finding God” just before his parole hearing with the American people.

Rational Thought on February 2, 2012 at 4:24 PM

Fine, Mr. Obama.

Let’s all follow Jesus.

The Government mandates that the extra 15% goes in the form of a direct payment to the charity of one’s choice, not to the feds.

Deal?

LibertyJane on February 2, 2012 at 4:30 PM

I somehow doubt Jesus was all that concerned about your petty whining about “freedom.”

bifidis on February 2, 2012 at 1:54 PM

Actually, Jesus would care greatly about your freedoms. Jesus wanted you to follow him willingly, not because someone had a spear to your neck.

For example: A wealthy man, who despises all those “beneath” him, is forced, by law, to give away his fortune to the less fortunate. He did what Jesus asked of him, but he did so begrudgingly. Do you believe he finds his way to heaven with that attitude in his heart and mind, even if he did precisely what Christ told him?

The freedom to act on your own is at the core of any system of morality. If you’re not acting of your own free will, if you’re being *forced* to do something you otherwise wouldn’t, be it good or bad in nature, it’s not really something you can be held to.

Gordy on February 2, 2012 at 5:01 PM

Has anyone informed him that Robin Hood isn’t actually in the Bible?

I mean he’s got the general “steal from the rich to give to the poor” motif but I don’t think he’s fully aware of what is actually in the bible and what he thinks maybe ought to be… Perhaps he should find one of these “bibles” and read it to figure out what’s in it first?

“I believe in God’s command to ‘love thy neighbor as thyself.”

“I know the version of that Golden Rule is found in every major religion and every set of beliefs — from Hinduism to Islam to Judaism to the writings of Plato,” Obama added.

I guess I can try to steal 10-15% of Obama’s income for rest of his life and give it away to charities he might not support but that I think should get more funding.

Or does he think I shouldn’t try to do this to him; but he should try to do this to me? I guess I’m still confused.

Wasn’t the point of the golden rule that you’d treat others the way you want to be treated? And Obama clarifies he had this in mind when he worked to take more of my earnings for his charitable giving… so I should do the same to him; yes?

Or how else does he think he meant this? I should oppose his taxes and give less than 1% of my earnings to charity as Obama does?

I guess I can try to be that level of a cheapskate, but not right now; I’m helping a friend with rent and I don’t want them or their kids out on the street because I was trying to follow the Obama way.

Maybe next year if my friends are financially stable I can try to be the cheap evil uncharitable jerk that Obama is today with my own money… and I’ll only try to be charitable with whatever money I can steal from Obama.

But it seems like a weird goal.

gekkobear on February 2, 2012 at 5:02 PM

This is incredible. Obama’s exposure to religion came from 20 years sitting in the pew of Jeremiah Wright’s liberation theology church. Liberation theology was used to spread communism in South America, and the Pope has condemned it as a “perversion” of the Gospel.

I can easily see Obama in the role of Pontious Pilate, with Christ and his disciples waving the tea party flag.

kunegetikos on February 2, 2012 at 5:19 PM

Obama is misquoting the Bible; that is, he is quoting it out of context. Full context (http://esv.scripturetext.com/luke/12.htm):

And that servant who knew his master’s will but did not get ready or act according to his will, will receive a severe beating. 48But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.

What is being “given” and “required” here are not material possessions like money (as would be in the Parable of Talents … but that doesn’t fit Obama’s purpose; that parable says (Luke 19): “I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”). What is being given and taken in this context are immaterial things, like knowledge and proper behavior.

But I’m not all that shocked; as everyone ought to know, Obama’s true faith is atheism—and atheists would have no problem misquoting Bible to fit their personal agenda; the Bible is not a holy scripture to them.

On an institutional level, the Left controls the media, and even many mainline Christian denominations are at least somewhat socially liberal. Even if a religious leader were to speak out, they’d either be ignored or ridiculed.

On an individual level, there are many Christians who don’t understand their own religion very well. Either they weren’t taught as children, didn’t pay attention, or never applied themselves to Bible study. Some “Christians” just don’t care and believe that they’re “owed.” The fact is that many people who claim to be Christians will accept whatever suits them as coming from God.

I’ve also noticed that the most sincere Christians tend to avoid becoming politically active. In others words, the people who understand the best how phony this language is are the ones who participate in politics the least.

Closeted atheists like Obama presumes that he is able to push our buttons because he speaks superficially spiritual language—but what he does to the truly pious is blaspheme the Holy Spirit, because, like Simon the Magician, he thinks he can subvert It for his own purpose.

Anyways. As much as I might wish all atheists (even those like Allahpundit) were saved, God saves whom he wishes to save; it’s not really up to any of us. I just reserve the right to get pissed at those who think they can manipulate us.

‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,’”

If I remember correctly that was the parable about the faithful servant and is a lesson in responsibility not spreading the wealth not giving away the things a person is given charge of.

President Obama a person “unto whom much has been given” is completely ignoring “much shall be required” in that he shirks the responsibility he gas been given with his “lead from behind doctrine”
.

philly_PA on February 3, 2012 at 8:12 AM

‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,’

This quote, to me, is the very nexus of the differences in mind set between a liberal and conservative. Obama believes that what I have was given to me. No, Mr. President, it was not given, it was EARNED. Words have meaning. ‘Given’ and ‘Earned’ are very different things. I work, I earn. NOTHING is given to me. But now that I have earned, you believe that I have a requirement to GIVE?

The poor in America are GIVEN everything. A home, food, healthcare…we have some of the wealthiest poor in the world. What they have, they are GIVEN. They do not EARN. So, if you maintain this opinion, Mr. President, what is REQUIRED of them? That’s a fair question. To those who ARE given, what do we require of them? Nothing.

Thus, a dependency class flourishes in America and we have a deficit to prove it.
