What has been the Obama Administration's spiritual impact on the United States?
We asked this question on our television show Christ in Prophecy of Carl Gallups, senior pastor of Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Milton, Florida, and the author of the best-selling books The Rabbi who Found Messiah and one of the best apologetics book called The Magic Man in the Sky. He is also the founder of the world famous PPSIMMONS YouTube channel and prominent Freedom Friday radio talk show host.
Nathan Jones: Carl, big question, how do you to assess the Obama Administration's spiritual impact on our nation?
Carl Gallups: I can begin it by doing it with one word — unprecedented.
Nathan Jones: That is the word that President Obama is notorious for using all the time, right?
Carl Gallups: It is a word that I use to describe the spiritual impact as well. Now, please hear me, I want to be fair about this. I do not believe that President Obama is the epitome of all the evil that has befallen our nation. I do not. I think though in our lifetime historically he has become the exclamation point at the end of the sentence. In other words, for administrations prior to him there has been a downward slide for decades, but it is like now we are at the point where the exclamation point is put.
Unprecedented. What do I mean by that? It is unprecedented that a US President and his Vice President would proclaim on national and thus worldwide television that a marriage between two men or two women is just as sanctified as a marriage between a man and a woman. That is unprecedented. That is like shaking your fist at God, absolutely.
Unprecedented is that a US President would take a federal law like the Defense of Marriage Act and basically say, "I'm not going to obey that law. I determine that it is unconstitutional."
Unprecedented that a President and his Vice President would come out in such overwhelming support of the radical homosexual rights agenda.
I could just keep on going down the line of events. Unprecedented debt, and that was done on purpose.
Nathan Jones: We're nearing $17 trillion in national debt. How could we possibly pay that off?
Dr. Reagan: Debt is a moral issue.
Carl Gallups: Yes, it's a moral issues and it's biblical issue. It's unprecedented that our US military has been forced not only to acknowledge the homosexual lifestyle, but to celebrate it.
Dr. Reagan: Oh, yes, and the chaplains are being forced to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies.
Carl Gallups: Unprecedented. Do you see why I use the word now?
Nathan Jones: When it comes to unprecedented, we're talking about never having been done before, in other words.
Carl Gallups: Yes, and particularly unprecedented when it comes to our American history.
When you consider that the United States is the number one super power economically and militarily, then that makes the office of the presidency if not the most power position in the world, one of the top most powerful positions in the world. So now with the Internet and instantaneous cable television and so forth, it is unprecedented that this kind of a "world leader" would make these kind of statements that now don't just impact our culture, but they impact the entire world.
In the fourth segment of our interview with Pastor Carl Gallups on America's spiritual crisis, Carl will explain why the legalization of homosexual marriage will result in the legalization of all sexual deviancies.
