Denying Christ is not a strength
Obama claims that our nation's strength lies in that it does not "consider" itself to be Christian. It is not a strength to be full of discord instead of unity. Saying a Christian nation is strong because it does not consider itself Christian is an oxymoron. It's like having an army that won't follow its commander, but wants to instead follow the orders of the enemy. I just want to ask why it should be viewed as a strength to turn against Jesus Christ, the God of the Bible, the Supreme Judge of the world to whom our founding fathers appealed for help when they were under oppression? It is not a strength, but a weakness. The same God who delivered us from every evil in the past is the same God who keeps America safe under his wings, and that God is Jesus Christ: "For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian." (Isa. 9:4) If we turn away from our Heavenly King and Deliverer, we turn back to oppression and disaster.
