Have you ever wondered about the origins of Obama’s Leftist spiritual and political tendencies, (other than the advisers he has listened to and been mentored by for years)? One must look at his number one spiritual adviser for years, the extreme Leftist, Rev. Jim Wallis. Wallis and his Sojourners group have been pushing Leftist theology and philosophy for many years.
Here are some excerpts from World Net Daily article:
Frontpage Magazine (March 17, 2009) reports, “The most notable of [Obama's] spiritual advisers today is his friend of many years, Rev. Jim Wallis.” Rev. Wallis admits that he and Obama have “been talking faith and politics for a long time.” He was picked by Obama to draft the faith-based policies of his campaign at the Democratic National Convention in Denver last year. Why should this alarm us?
First, Jim Wallis has had relationships with the communist Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES).
Second, his “Witness for Peace” was an attempt to defend the Nicaraguan [Communist] Sandinistas! Wallis, together with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright (Obama’s former pastor of 20 years) “rallied support for the communist Nicaraguan regime and protested actions by the United States which supported the anti-communist Contra rebels” (Family World News, February 2009, p. 7).
Third, Wallis and his Sojourners community of fellow-travelers believe Fidel Castro’s Cuba, Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela, Daniel Ortega’s Nicaragua and the other revolutionary forces “restructuring socialist societies” are the communist paradises the United States needs to emulate in order to establish “social justice.” Writing in the November 1983 issue of Sojourners, Jacob Laksin notes, “Jim Wallis and Jim Rice drafted what would become the charter of leftist activists committed to the proliferation of communist revolutions in Central America” (Laksin, “Sojourners: History, Activities and Agendas” in Discoverthenetworks.org., 2005).
Why should Christians and Conservative be concerned? Because, believe it or not, Wallis is and has been exerting great influence on the “evangelical” church in America.
Recently, Muslim leaders issued an ecumenical letter, “A Common Word Between Us and You” asking Christian leaders to sign on. Some have.
Signers include Jim Wallis, president of Sojourners; Rick Warren, founder and senior pastor of Saddleback Church; John Stott, rector emeritus of All Souls Church in London; Vineyard USA, Brian McLaren. and Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals.[Source LightHouse Trails Research]
Bible believing Christians MUST wake up to what is going on in our churches. We must also pray that Barack Obama will somehow trust Jesus Christ as his Savior. These friends of his apparently have no idea of how to trust Jesus Christ. Obama won’t have the vision or wisdom to reject these lies until or unless he is a Believer in Jesus Christ.
