Barak Husein Obama's Church Mission Statement...Read it for yourself!!!

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: a church deliberately devoid of anything American. Even the term "African-American" is avoided like a plague.

The mission statement of Barak Hussein Obama's church reads like a call to arms for the underprivileged. Resentment, frustration and revenge are all that jumps out at me when I read this. The focus is on elevating man in man's eyes and not elevating man in God's eyes. This church wants you to join together to right the wrongs of society with respect to racial discrimination and injustice. A Church of Christ's mission should be to win the lost and bring them to Jesus, our Lord and Savor. If this takes place, then all else is accomplished.

Barak Hussein Obama's church is simply using the shroud of a church to launch their prerogatives, platforms, and agendas. This is shameful and is not of Christ. If it weren't for America and her freedoms, this church would not even be able to exist...So why take America out of the church.?. This is what I call burning the candle at both ends. Barak Hussein Obama wants to take the Church out of America and belongs to a church that took America out of the church. Even a politically blind individual that has no affiliation with a church, politics, or inherent struggle can see that something is not right with this picture. I ask you to take a moment and read Barak Hussein Obama's church's mission statement below, and make your own decision. Be well and be wise.

God bless this great nation of liberties and freedoms we call America!

MISSION STATMENT

Trinity United Church of Christ has been called by God to be a congregation that is not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that does not apologize for its African roots! As a congregation of baptized believers, we are called to be agents of liberation not only for the oppressed, but for all of God's family. We, as a church family, acknowledge, that we will, building on this affirmation of "who we are" and "whose we are," call men, women, boys and girls to the liberating love of Jesus Christ, inviting them to become a part of the church universal, responding to Jesus' command that we go into all the world and make disciples!

We are called out to be "a chosen people" that pays no attention to socio-economic or educational backgrounds. We are made up of the highly educated and the uneducated. Our congregation is a combination of the haves and the have-nots; the economically disadvantaged, the under-class, the unemployed and the employable.

The fortunate who are among us combine forces with the less fortunate to become agents of change for God who is not pleased with America's economic mal-distribution!

W.E.B. DuBois indicated that the problem in the 20th century was going to be the problem of the color line. He was absolutely correct. Our job as servants of God is to address that problem and eradicate it in the name of Him who came for the whole world by calling all men, women, boys and girls to Christ.
