I can only wholeheartedly agree with this statement.
The problem that the Obama administration, the Clinton administration and of course the Carter administration have brought over America is that people no longer use the Holy Bible as a guideline.
Please allow me to demonstrate this with some Holy Scripture. In Genesis 16:8 the Bible says: "And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.
" I will explain what is happening here. Sarai is treating her maid, Hagar, in horrible horrible ways. So horrible that Hagar has run away from Sarai. In Obama's America many people would tell Hagar that she did the right thing and that Sarai should not have treated her badly. They will tell her to sue Sarai and to join a communist union. And to make matter even worse, they will tell Hagar to stop working and start begging for handouts instead of earning an honest dollar.
But that is the complete opposite of what the Bible has to say on the subject. Let us see how God handles this in the next verse, Genesis 16:9: "And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.
" So God tells her to shut up, get back to work and accept whatever suffering comes with that!
What the 99% being exploited by the 1% clearly fail understand is that the 1% is doing them a huge favor. By giving their employees a horrible life, they are making it easier for them to go to Heaven! The Bible is very clear on this matter in Matthew 19:23-24: "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
" So let me repeat this, by keeping the 99% poor the 1% are doing the 99% a huge favor. Maybe they have to suffer a few decades while they are here on Earth but once they die they will have an eternity in Heaven to thank the 1% over and over again for their infinite generosity.
Yours in Christ,
