Insane leaders, insane world

Insane leaders, insane world

Just take a moment and think about the leadership in the world. We have this “president” of Iran, Ahmadinejad, saying that Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth, that Jews are pigs, and that America is the “great Satan.” There is the Un leader in North Korea who is running around in a poorly tailored military uniform saying he is going to nuke South Korea and the United States. The European Union, with whoever that is led by, is confiscating bank accounts of its member countries to pay for bad debt racked up by “elected” politicians. The world is like a bad mix of the “Airplane,” “Police Academy,” and Austin Powers Dr. Evil movies rolled into one. Then there is the occupant of the Oval Office.

Here is a guy who wants to abolish marriage by instituting gay marriage; thinks it’s OK to abort babies up until it is time for them to be born; thinks it’s OK to sell semi-automatic weapons to Mexican drug dealers, but wants to disarm the American public; spends millions of taxpayer dollars to support the very terrorists in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Tunisia and Syria that we are trying to defeat in Afghanistan and Iraq; has presided over 90 million Americans giving up on ever finding a job, 50 million living in poverty, and the highest deficits and national debt of most all the president’s combined. Yet, he spends over a million taxpayer dollars for a golf outing with Tiger Woods, takes lavish vacations and throws parties at the White House costing taxpayers millions each.

Most people consider the Un leader in North Korea insane. What does that make the un-leader in the United States? The occupant of the Oval Office has submitted his budget to Congress. Given the backdrop of this bad economy and the suffering of the American people, the budget, his budget, calls for $3.77 trillion in spending and $1.8 trillion in “deficit reduction.” Carefully characterizing tax increases as “deficit reduction,” the occupant is trying to pull the wool over peoples’ eyes that somehow he is being responsible. Let’s do the math. 1.8 trillion divided by the US population of 330 million, means a tax increase of $5,454 per man, woman and child. This is truly “UN Leadership.” It also seems insane.

Jesus said in Matthew 7:15-16, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits.” He said in John 10:11, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep. The hireling flees, because he is a hireling, and cares not for the sheep.” Leadership is important. We can see the type of leaders in the world, in our country, by what they do. If we all would truly follow Jesus Christ as our leader, the wolves and hirelings would have no place.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
