This week brings the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama to an end. Historians will likely view President Obama's organizing ability as his greatest skill. On the public stage, he brimmed with charisma, cool, and charm, all adding to his appeal.

Because of his willingness to violate God's divine moral order, compounded by a character flaw of dishonesty, lying and deceiving the American public. As A.W. Pink noted in An Exposition of Hebrews, "A cause is known by its effects, a tree by its fruits."

For example, in 2008 when Pastor Rick Warren asked candidate Obama's position on abortion, he responded: "Well, you know, I think that whether you're looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade."

Warren then asked, "Define marriage. " Obama said: "I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. read more
