I did not hear the story of Eric Metaxas prophetic “opening” for USA President Obama at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast. I wonder if what he said will make the President think twice or even once.
It seems that Eric Metaxas, who spoke right before the President, “shot down” everything the President was set to say before the President made it to the podium. The questions ask afterwards seemed to surround the issue of “How did Metaxas know what the President was going to say?” Well, he couldn’t have known. Maybe the whole event was organized by the One who organizes far more that most are willing to give Him credit or organizing and orchestrating, the Man, Jesus, Himself! That’s what I think. It appears that Jesus has Metaxes’ ear and heart. We don’t know what the President is listening to not what his heart is telling him. He appears to be lost from, well just lost–like a ship without a rudder. But, not unlike most other leaders in the world.
After carefully describing the inhumane treatment of both Jews and Africans by those claiming to be Christians, Metaxas asked then answered this question:
“You think you’re better than the Germans of that era? You’re not,” adding: “Whom do we say is not fully human today?”
“I would say the same thing about the unborn. Apart from God we cannot see that they are persons. So those of us who know the unborn to be human beings are commanded by God to love those who do not yet see. We need to know that apart from God we would be on the other side of that divide, fighting for what we believe is right.”
