Tomorrow President Obama Celebrates 50 Days in Office

A lot has happened in our country in the last 50 days. The biggest factor of change has been brought by the new presidency of Barak Obama. Tomorrow he will celebrate 50 days in office. Let's review some of the changes in policy that have been made in America, that are relevant to you as a believer. Here are some of the issues:

Abortion: Friday, January 23rd, 2009...President Obama lifted a ban on federal funding for international groups that promote or perform abortions, reversing a policy of his predecessor, George W. Bush.
What does this mean to you? Your taxes are being used right this very minute to pay for abortions in other countries.

Conscience Clause: Barak Obama has promised Planned Parenthood that he will pursue the Freedom of Choice Act - which will force faith based hospitals and health care facilities to perform abortions and compel taxpayer funding for abortions.
What does this mean to you? If the Freedom of Choice Act passes, Christian Dr.s who refuse to perform abortions due to their faith and conscience will legally be required to perform the abortion or lose their job if this clause is overturned.

Embryonic Stem Cell Research: The ban placed by President Bush to use federal funding is to be lifted TODAY by Obama.
What does this mean to you? Your tax dollars today are paying for embryonic stem cell research. Though this may violate your conscience - legally you are required to pay for this research. This research that previously was payed for by private sector charities, are now funded by your hard earned money.

America's Relationship with Israel: Throughout the months of December and January, Israeli troops pressed into Gaza City against Hamas after the Palestinians sent over 110 rockets across the border into Israel earlier in December. Israel successfully demolished the Gaza Strip. "Obama administration officials had indicated last week that the U.S. was preparing to pledge $900 million in assistance for Gaza, but Wood's description of the plan Sunday indicated that the only portion going directly to rebuilding Gaza was the $300 million." (
What does this mean to you? Your tax dollars will be funding the enemies of Israel to be rescued and rebuit. If you read the Old Testament, you know the last group of people you want to "mess with" are the Israelites! America has always been a friend and protector of Israel. Obama and Hillary Clinton's move to aid the Palestinians puts your tax dollars directly into the hands of Hamas - the enemies of Israel.

This was all completed in the first 50 days of Obama's presidency. There are many more issues like these surfacing - and this troubles me. I took out my calculator and did the math, we have 1,374 more days of Obama in office. That's 27 times 50! Are you on your knees for America? If you have not been - it's time! Please take a moment right there at your computer to say a prayer for our nation, for Barak Obama, for the House and Senate and for Israel.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Walk With the King!

Wow! I am surprised I am the first to comment today. I agree my heart is very heavy with the events of the past 50 days. It is scary how quickly Obama began undoing what was done before him to protect our rights as believers. Obama promised change and he has been true to his word (on that) but is isn't the change America needs. I find my self constantly thinking and praying 2 Chronicles 7:14. Thanks for writing this today. Love you! K

yes I'm surprised there arent more comments. I guess I knew things werent good but to read it like this...I love how the media has swept so much of these issues under the rug in comparison to the economic stuff. The freedom of choice act sickens me along with the stem cell research. I guess the shock to me was that he did all of this in 50 days already!!

I definantly think you just listed some great reasons why we should be on our knees!

For months, we were hearing on the news that the economy was bad. Where we lived, though, it was like everything was fine and dandy as usual. It was as though all the economy stuff didn't effect us.

Then things started to change a couple months ago. More and more of our friends being layed off or having to worry about being layed off. Cities around us saying they would not be giving their gov. employees raises this year.

The housing market is what really has gone downhill in the past few months. Many new subdivisions have gone bank-owned, the housing values FELL last week according to taxes (including ours, which is on the market), and overall value is just going down further.

All of a sudden, the economy stuff is real. It seems that it went downhill where we live shortly after the new president took office. What used to be only stuff we heard on the news is now a reality here.

I agree about Israel- my husband was just mentioning something similar the other day...

I agree with you all - thank you for sharing!!! Morgan - yes, the recession is starting to affect everyone - not just Wall Street and it can be scary. I blogged on it today but I think I could blog on it for a week! It really is a growing problem.

Hang in there!

I am so glad you took the time to break the truth down. It's serious. No one should be forced to do anything or lose their job b/c the government told them to. This is just terrible. I really enjoy your blog and you have beautiful children. Stay happy and strong.

Evil does not, and will not win.
I'm so glad everything changes because we pray, we just can't see those changes...yet. Phil 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." My favorite part of this promise is the three little words before this on Phil 4:5 "The Lord is near."
