Counterfeit Christians

Reader comment on item: U.S.-Pakistan Relations in Decline

Submitted by kerusso alethes (United States), May 12, 2011 at 15:21

President Obama may not be a Muslim, but with the assassination of Osama Bin Laden we now know for sure that he is a card carrying member of the "Visible Counterfeit Christian Community". Like most professing Christians who attend a visible church he totally forgot the words of Moses and Jesus; Thou shalt not kill (man), and Love your enemies.

Like most Americans who claim to be followers of Jesus, President Obama is really just another Pauline convert. Followers of the man who laid out the structure for the "Visible Church" in opposition to the "Invisible Congregation" that Jesus established. They outwardly wear their religion with crosses and pendants on their bodies like military badges of honor, and yet the words of Jesus are no where to be found in their hearts and lives.

Invisible believers do not pray in public, nor do they even profess to be "Christians". Whenever someone declares, I am this, or I am that, they prove themselves to be a liar. Jesus said, "If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true" and "he that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory" (John 5:31) (John 7:18)

You see the moment we say "I am" we are actually calling on a false witness. America needs to change the words from "In God we trust" to "in Paul, the counterfeit, we trust.
