Fruits

We’re told that actions speak louder than words.  With this in mind, let’s take a look at the Obama’s most recent visit to the National Prayer Breakfast, shall we?

"Today we profess the principles we know to be true," he said. "We know that each of us is wonderfully made in the image of God. We therefore believe in the inherent dignity of every human being – dignity that no earthly power can take away.”
Except, of course, for the unborn.  Thank you, Mr. 100%-NARAL-approved President!
”And central to that dignity is freedom of religion – the right of every person to practice their faith how they choose, to change their faith if they choose, or to practice no faith at all, and to do this free from persecution and fear."
Says the President whose policies have done just the opposite in his own country.
Obama also spoke about prisoners of conscience, or those who are imprisoned for their beliefs, around the world. He said his administration will do "everything in our power to secure" the release of Kenneth Bae, a Christian missionary being held in North Korea, and he called on the Iranian government to release Saeed Abedini, an American pastor, "so he can return to the loving arms of his wife and children in Idaho."
Both men, imprisoned since 2012, the former in North Korea, the latter in Iran.  I seriously wonder what ‘power’ Mr. Obama is talking about, since this Administration has done precious little to secure the release of either man.

Jesus had it right:
You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?  So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit.   A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit.   Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.   Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. (Matthew 7:16-20, ESV, emphases mine)
