When an Oath is not an Oath

Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out  …from a different perspective

“I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will execute the Office of the President of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.”

These were the words of Barack Hussein Obama when he took the oath of office, as President of the United States, sworn on two Bibles, not just one. This, however, was the same man who had denounced the Bible for its affirmation of two different practices – slavery and stoning. Were we not given a hint that we should have questioned his sincerity in swearing an oath on the truth of God?

Our contemporary society, with its culture, is facing a serious integrity crisis, as the bond of a person’s word is flippantly broken. A biblical view of oaths and promises calls us to a higher commitment to our word, but is there not a problem and conflict where we see oaths taken by the same men of government office as those who have forbidden the Bible, or mention of God’s name, in the classrooms of the nation? How is it that the President can affirm the truth of his words on the same book, which he forbids the children to read in class? At the same time, he turns his head aside while these children are being poisoned by literature that endorses the abominations, so clearly outlined in the Bible. Does this not ooze with hypocrisy?

We regularly hear oaths uttered during trials, weddings and inaugurations, yet how often are they honored when we examine the number of incidents of perjury, divorce and demagoguery?

Only this past month, Eric Holder, the Attorney-General of the United States, holder of the highest judicial, government office in the land, took an oath before Congress to tell “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” Yet there is strong evidence the man lied during the congressional hearings in what was not a sophisticated perjury trap sprung by a Republican Congress, but rather a freely offered misrepresentation to no particular question during the question period of one Democrat.

In relation to later evidence presented, there was no other way to view his words except as a lie. Even if he were not under oath, this would constitute a felony punishable by up to five years in prison. At the very least, it should have resulted in his resignation being accepted by the President. However, liars are brothers in arms and have no moral compass, which would cause them to abhor a culture that rejects truth and embraces the lie. Apparently, with both men in agreement, Holder remains in office, his lies completely acceptable to the President, who sees no reason to call for his resignation.

The first recorded lie came from the inventor and spirit of liars, Satan, himself:

And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’” And the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil (Genesis 3:2-5).”

This is the root of our modern-day, American culture; we accept the satanic promotion of evil while, at the same time, rejecting the truth of God. We are a satanic society made up of children of the devil, the same society as that of the Pharisees, the religious leaders of Jesus’ day, whom He called sons of their father, the devil. Jesus specifically said, “But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one (Matthew 5:37).”

It will be interesting to see if Congress can live with the lies, and demonstrate a double standard of penalizing the average citizen for his/her travesty of the law, while allowing government to live above the law. Has this culture not turned the corner, where its citizens actually want the liars to rule instead of having a government whose “Yea” means “Yea,” and whose “Nay” means “Nay?” Imagine a society where oaths would not be necessary, because the culture honored God and knew Him as the God of Truth and as ‘our Father who art in heaven’.

It took a young, new graduate this past week, called Roy Costner IV, a South Carolina school valedictorian, to show our pathetic, top-elected and top-appointed officials of the United States of America, just how pathetic they are. If ever there were a politically incorrect action taken, showing incredible bravery and just how weak the President and Attorney-General look behind their deceitful lying, it was the action taken by this young man.

He stood up to deliver his pre-approved commencement address, only to tear it up and defy school administrators and the ruling powers to be, all the way up to the White House and even to the President, himself, as he began to recite the Lord’s Prayer, which acknowledges God, not Satan, as our Father in heaven. His Pickens County School District had banned prayer at schools altogether after a barrage of complaints from local atheist groups, regarding the inclusion of the Lord’s Prayer before school board meetings, encouraged by the government’s promotion of equal rights no matter how evil or satanic they are.

Our Mr. Costner resembled a young shepherd boy ready to face Goliath, but this young graduate knew something important that most of us don’t know; God was there fighting this battle with him. He decided to talk about his Christian upbringing in a turn of events that he could only dream about; it drew wild applause from the crowd, including from his classmates, in sharp contrast to the response of the public to either Obama or Holder.

Costner later told Gretchen Carlson of Fox and Friends that the school principal had told him he could not give a speech about religion. This foolish principal apparently did not know God is about truth and not about religion at all, and He always calls His own to speak the truth. Costner decided to think for himself and he made the choice between God and the satanic rules of men. He stated he believes that taking God out of schools is going to hurt more than it will help. He has been aware that, in the past year, more types of arguments and fights were going on, which could have been prevented by bringing God back into the schools.

God’s timing for this young man could not have been more perfect. After the fact, the school district said that it was not going to punish him and couldn’t “even if we wanted to”, for it had a little problem in doing so. He was now a graduate, and no longer under its jurisdiction.

Perhaps Obama never really graduated, since Harvard University officials have been reluctant to release any of his records to the public. If that were true, he could be punished by the people, to whom he is accountable, and fired for having lied to them concerning his credentials. After all, there seems to be no record, whatsoever, of anyone having seen or heard of him at Columbia University, which he claims he also attended for a couple of years. Is this the same President of transparency, who he claims to be?

“Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me (John 8:43-45).”
