    They piled up huge amounts of grain like sand on the seashore. Finally, they stopped keeping records because there was too much to measure.
    The Genesis 41: 49

    'The People’ said to Obama, “I hereby put you in charge of the entire land of Plenty.”
    The Genesis 41: 41

    At last the years of bumper crops throughout the land of Plenty came to an end.
    Then the years of famine began, just as Obama had predicted.
    The famine also struck all the surrounding countries, yet throughout Plenty, there was food.
    Eventually however, the famine spread throughout the land of Plenty as well.
    And the people cried out to their Leader for food, he told them,
    Go to Congress, and do whatever they tell you.”

    So with severe famine everywhere, Obama opened up the storehouses and distributed grain to the People, for the famine was severe throughout the land.
    And people from all over came to them to buy grain from Obama because the famine was severe throughout the world.
    The Genesis 41:53-57

    A very silly post. The presidential inauguration is a secular ceremony.

    Then why have an invocation and benediction and pledge an oath on a Bible or perhaps other religious book (still waiting to see about the Quran)?

    None of those things is prescribed by the U.S. constitution.

    The Koran silliness is a right-wing talking point that is really, really silly. We already know that he will use a Bible of Lincoln's.

    I would encourage you to keep up with the news more. :)

    No Ken, no! Obama has secretly taken the pages out of the Lincoln Bible, and put a copy of the Quran inside!! Don't you know how insideous these Evil Moose-lims are? :smilewinkgrin:

    Actually, I'm a little surprised that, apparently, there will not be prayers by a rabbi and an imam somewhere in the ceremonies in the interest of fairness. I know it will set off howling by some here on the BB. But I am a little surprised.

    Ya know, I am surprised as you are since Obama was supported by so many Jewish voters. I can say we are not aware of all the festivities and I think he must have put a Rabbi on program somewhere... Perhaps the McCain dinner or something...

    I sure hope the Lord works with this Bishop's heart because he is leading others on his path to death by making them feel this behavior is acceptable to Christ. I don't know how anyone who truly studies scripture can confuse the Christian position on [email protected]@sexuality.

    Please don't misunderstand my post, many Christians sin even if it's one in our minds. I just don't see how you can be proud of sin then encourage others to do likewise.

    Woe unto me IF I PREACH NOT THE GOSPEL.... I have no idea hat he's preaching but it can't be the Gospel.

    The article presents, at best, a mixed picture of Mattson. It appears that she has great references from both Republicans and Democrats. However, I realize that deception is always a possibility. Time will tell.

    Looks like the government as a whole uses her so I doubt if she's that harmful...

    She's been hanging around DC and Bush for a while. Nothing new here.

    Very silly and speculative I'll admit. :smilewinkgrin:

    I've heard Obama compared to our Savior,
    I just wondered what biblical charachter he best fit.

    My guess is Joseph.

    Joseph saved his people and the Egyptians from starvation

    In the process both ended up under the slavery and oppression of the government.

    What charachter would you compare Obama too?

    Please don't say Judas!!!

    Eze 16:20 And you took your sons and your daughters, whom you had borne to me, and these you sacrificed to them to be devoured. Were your whorings so small a matter
    Eze 16:21 that you slaughtered my children and delivered them up as an offering by fire to them?
