The Emperor’s New Clothes

      The Presidential Tailors

        “I don’t want to blind them, I just want them to blink a little”  

So said, the Emperor in the Hans Christian Andersen tale, “The Emperor’s New Clothes” as he was being fitted for a very special suit woven from invisible thread that only the “stupid and incompetent” could not see.

A lot like American politics these days!

With a snip here and tuck there, politicians do their best to convince us, what we do not see, is really what we see!  And, I cannot think of any one more adept at this then our current President himself. Especially, when it comes to claiming that he is a  Christian.

And, while only God knows the heart, the President’s policies speak louder than the few scriptures, he quotes every now and then, when it seems to serve him best.

But, like the prophets of old and the story of the Emperor’s new clothes, there comes a time, when, someone just has to speak out and say  – “Mr. President, you haven’t any clothes!”

If you have not already see the YouTube video of Eric Metaxas (author of the Bonhoeffer book) speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast on Feb 2, 2012, I urge you  to do so now.  It takes only about 30 minutes to watch and I promise, you will be as blessed, as you are impressed!  With a great deal of humor, tact, and COURAGE, Eric indirectly confronts the President on his policies and talks about what it really means to have a relationship with Jesus, and not just lip service.

Please, pray for all those who were in attendance at the Prayer breakfast that morning, including President and Mrs. Obama  – and as always,

“Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy

  1. Watching the video and at the final moments of it I got the idea that there were external niceties, but in the background it seemed as though there was a spiritual confrontation happening. Notice how quickly Eric begins to exit and is stopped and so he turns around greets the President and the first lady, and then leaves without delay.

  2. I am so glad that I watched the video. The words he spoke need to be repeated all over this land. We are in dire need of voices that will speak The Truth. Thank you for posting this entire article and the video.
