NewsReal Sunday: Obama Greater Than Jesus? (Part 1)

The new icon of secular progressives.

There have been reports in the past on people thinking Barack Obama was the anti-Christ.  There have been some stories previously on Obama possibly being the next Messiah.  And now, just after celebrating the birth of Jesus, one newspaper claims Obama is “greater than Jesus.”

Politiken, the second most widely-read newspaper in all of Denmark, boldly proclaimed this week that Obama is indeed greater than the Son of God. Read the editorial for yourself here.

“He comes from humble beginnings and defends the weak and vulnerable, because he can identify himself with their conditions.  And no we are not thinking of Jesus Christ, whose birthday has just been celebrated – - but rather the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama.”

The paper discusses how people have tried to hurt Obama by comparing Him to Jesus, but they argue the comparison should help the President. Why? Because, according to Politiken, comparing Obama to Jesus would show how the former one term Senator is superior to the Savior of the world.

“Obama’s critics have claimed that his supporters have idolised him as a saviour, thus attempting to dismantle the concrete hope that Obama has represented for most Americans.  The idea was naturally that the comparison between Jesus and Obama – which is something that the critics developed themselves – would be comical, blasphemous, or both.  If such a comparison were to be made, it would, of course, inevitably be to Obama’s advantage…Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus.”

I know this article sounds like it is from The Onion, but let me repeat: this is the #2 paper in all of Denmark. It is not a joke.  In fact, the paper has won prestigious awards for being one of the best designed papers in the world and excellent in journalism. Their editor, Toger Seidenfaden, is a past attendee of the secretive Bilderberg Group, which is an annual, invitation-only meeting of the world’s most 150 or so most influential people (Timothy Geitner and Ben Bernanke are other recent attendees.)

Why would such an acclaimed paper think Obama is greater than Jesus?  What do they base their argument on?  Their main argument focuses on Obamacare being passed in the Senate.  Somehow 60 US Senators voting yea on a 1 Trillion dollar health care bill is grounds for not only sainthood – but better than Saviorhood.

Politiken lists a few other reasons and then make their summary of Jesus’ accomplishments:

“Add to that the biggest ever financial support package in America’s history, a major disarmament agreement and the quickest-ever re-establishment of American reputation.  On the other hand, we have Jesus’ miracles that everyone still remembers, but which only benefitted a few.  At the same time, we have the wonderful parables about his life and deeds that we know from the New Testament, but which have been interpreted so differently over the past 2000 years that it is impossible to give an unequivocal result of his work.”

Very few in the media have picked up on this story so far. Fox News’ Red Eye is one of the few.

Red Eye mocks the Politiken for good reason.  The Danish paper’s argument is absurd.  Obama understood it was ridiculous to win a Nobel Peace Prize, though he did accept the award on behalf of the American people. However, Obama would run from and be offended by this proclamation that he is greater than the King of Kings.

What does scripture say of Jesus and who is the greatest?

“15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood,shed on the cross.” Colossians 1:15-20

Obviously, all Christians believe that Jesus is the greatest man of all time because we believe He is God in the flesh.  We also believe that besides the miracles of Jesus that “benefited a few,” Jesus gave His own life that all might find eternal life through Him.  There is no greater act in history.

Even those without faith in Jesus as Messiah understand that He was one of the greatest men of all time.  Muslims claim Jesus as one of the great prophets.  Jews respect Him as a great teacher. Moreover, billions have learned to show grace, peace, and love through His teachings. Obama himself has quoted Jesus as reason to help your fellow man.

Secular progressives have gone too far in Denmark.  Hopefully they won’t win any converts to their new religion of Obama.

(Keep an eye out for Part 2 of this post later today, which will compare how Christians and fundamentalist Muslims respond differently to criticism – looking at recent examples in Denmark.)

    Judging from recent blogs, have we not found another savior, already.

    Second Timothy chapter 4 versus 3 and 4 state:

    “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

    This is the age we live in. Wisdom and knowledge has escaped and is beyond the reach of most. We’ve discarded truth and are now buried in lies, distortion and much foolishness. That some would compare a man greater than the Son of God and worse a man of such small character and blatant, incredulous actions. God has and will indeed continue to judge the world. His hand is already removed and we are experiencing at best His relaxed blessing and at worse His coming judgement.

    Jeremiah 9:3
    And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.

    Jeremiah 9:5
    And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.

      Jeff, that verse from Jeremiah reminds me exactly of our current Dem leadership. I guess instead of refering to Obama as The Won we have to now call him The Word. I heard a story of a man studying with an Asian spiritual leader (Buddhists or Taoism,I’m not sure). The student gave the teacher a copy of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, which he had never read. Later, after reading, the teacher replied, “Yes, these are the things I’ve been trying to tell you.” Are Obamas words as important as the Gospel?

    Jesus Himself warned us that false Christs would appear and try to deceive many. Those that try to promate a false Christ are guilty as well. True believing Christians can rest easy knowing with full confidence that on the day of judgment….EVERY KNEE WILL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD. What a sad day that will be for those who chose not to believe.

    I notice the WON doesn’t exactly knock himself out trying to dispell these wierd theories. Maybe he believes it, a little bit,himself.

    Shane, I completely agree with your observation! This has been one of the most disturbing aspects of the whole LIE…”O” has never attempted to distance himself from any of these types of claims! He hasn’t even had his ‘minions’ to speak out in his defense….hmm….must be that “The One” is totally cool with that….pray for our nation, we are deluded into believing the lie.

    There has never been a human like Jesus Christ, because to start off with, He was and is both God and Man in one Being. His Birth was implemented by the power of the Holy Spirit, the Third Person in the Divine Trinity. His Life, Death and Resurrection were not of human origin but of the heavenly. To even begin to compare him to Barack Hussein Obama is ludicrous albeit most irreverent.
    One is not surprised at the article in the Danish Newspaper when the word “Bilderberg” appears in the noteworthy comment. However, there is amazement but yet no amazement that the Danish article has not been picked up by most newspapers in the world. They gave their attention in a major way when Mohammet was supposedly insult by a cartoonist, with the resultant threatenings and violence from the Moslem world. Is not the Christian world deserving of at least similar attention? Or is it that the Person of Jesus Christ is considered by the secular journalists of no account? Such an opinion would be to their detriment and not to that of the Lord Jesus Christ as God has given Him a Name that is above every name, that at the Name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
