With the current economy in such bad times, people seem to turn to faith. In the past it was the Church, but this times it seems to be Mr. Obama many have turned to
He offers a message of change and promise, one of hope for all and fairness. It’s a good message, one that everyone, regardless of political party should agree with. Now I myself did not vote for Mr. Obama, not because I don’t like hope and change, I do, just not how he would like to do it. But that’s for another blog, not this one.
This blog is about how people turn to faith in hard times, this time faith in Mr. Obama. Faith in his words, and his being. Mr. Obama has been placed up high, and the masses are kneeling down before him. Now I don’t blame him, it us, the media and the people. We were all looking for something to place our faith in, and along came Mr. Obama.
Me, I turned to Jesus and my Catholic faith, but many turned away from that and turned to earthly men and woman to be the center of their faith.
In truth I feel bad for Mr. Obama, there is no way he can ever live up to what the people want or expect from him. They are demanding that he walk on water, and raise the dead. There are going to be a lot of very sad people in this world when they see Mr. Obama for what he really is…. just a man, not “The One”, but just one of us.
Too Mr. Obama I would offer this, Be true to yourself and let others do the same. You can not be the end all for all, you are not the “fix it all” man, you are our next president of the United States, and for that you should be proud, and as a nation we all need to stand behind you, but my faith is still in Jesus and the Catholic Church to be my saving grace.
For everyone who thinks of Mr. Obama as their saving grace, please reconsider, the man just can not live up to that, no man can, except one, Jesus the Christ, and look at how the people of his times treated him.
