Recently I was involved in an Internet chat session and they asked for my response to the current administration and President Obama's liberal "anti-God" agenda regarding abortion, gay marriage, Christianity and so forth. Interestingly, the discussion centered around two different black preachers' perspectives. One preacher calls sin for what it is and the other justified sin. Interestingly again, is that more and more black preachers are speaking out against this administration and Obama's sinful leadership.
There is always a way to slant a thought process or create a perception of reality to justify a predetermined objective. God is intolerant of all forms of sin. Some sins take only the sinner to hell. Other sins take the sinner and other people to hell with them. If the leader endorses sin, set by God's standard of righteousness, then he is wrong in doing so.
As an example, note: Prior to President Bill Clinton, there was a sense of guilt associated with sexual immorality and just plain immorality. Bill Clinton was a role model. After his sexual immorality, the sense of sin associated with immorality is gone. People now openly and freely engage in immorality and feel no guilt or remorse.
Obama has said we are not a Christian nation and he continues to endorse a multitude of sins.
A direct answer to the questions concerning this discussion is this: It doesn't matter who or what one's station in life is, a person cannot compromise God's standard of righteousness.
I know this: I would not want to be Obama, or a political leader, or any leader, or any preacher who leads people astray. Satan has a special place for them. God says He will not be mocked.
