In the last day, it has been reported that Barack Hussein Obama’s half-brother named George Hussein Onyango Obama has been found living in poverty just outside of Nairobi, Kenya, Africa on one dollar per month. Barack and George have the same father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr and different mothers.
Now keep in the back of your mind what Obama said last Saturday night at the Saddleback Church Presidential Forum regarding America’s greatest failure:
Obama told the Rev. Rick Warren that “we still don’t abide by that basic precept of Matthew: that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.
“That basic principle applies to poverty. It applies to racism and sexism; it applies to not thinking about providing ladders of opportunity for people to get into the middle class.”
This is the scripture in Matthew regarding “the least of these” that Obama is referring to:
Matthew 25:40 – And the King shall answer and say to them, Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it to me. (American King James Version)
I found a post by La Shawn Barber that makes a great point……
Assuming he (Obama) didn’t know how his brother was living (benefit of the doubt, and all that), I wonder what Barack Obama will do to help him now, in light of his “we still don’t spend enough time thinking about the least of these” lecture on Saturday at the Saddleback Civil Forum.
Well, The Telegrapharticle about Obama’s brother implies that Obama mentions his brother only once in his book and saw his brother in Africa as recent as 2006. It is probably safe to say that Obama knows his brother is most likely alive.
I suppose we can’t propose to know everything about the situation regarding Obama’s brother and why he lives in poverty. But doesn’t it seem just a little bit hypocritical that Obama was preaching about how “America” doesn’t do enough to help others around the globe and then we find his brother on the other side of the globe living in poverty?
It seems to me that even $50-$100 per month would go a tremendously long way towards helping someone like Obama’s brother. Or maybe if the money is not the best way to help him …then doesn’t it seem you (Obama) would bring him out of poverty to this country or another so that he can get on his feet and get the the help he needs? The article insinuates that Obama’s brother is alone and most people in Africa do not even know he exists, anyway.
La Shawn Barberwith another post about Obama’s “Least of These” sermon and his socialist twist of the scriptures:
The point is this: Christian acts of charity are to be done on an individual level, and the nature of that giving is voluntary. In Matthew 25, Christ wasn’t commending believers and condemning unbelievers based on what they rendered unto Caesar; he was referring to individual acts of kindness those who love God are willing do.
Does Obama really believe Christ had government in view in Matthew 25, that spending even more tax dollars on the “needy” fulfills God’s requirement for Christians to care for the poor in their congregations? From what I’ve read and heard, Obama believes in a jumbled social gospel mess that’s based on theological ignorance.
I understand that Obama has a large family, but the planet is a big place, too….and Obama expects all of us to pay to help people just like his brother all over the planet! Maybe Obama is just waiting until he’s elected so OUR money, not his, will go toward helping his brother. It is certainly one conclusion you could draw on this situation.
