C-SPAN SPEECH HERE:
About 35:00-35:30 min into it is when Eric begins. WELL WORTH LISTENING TO, imho.

. . .
But before the president could utter a word, it was Metaxas who delivered a devastating, albeit apparently unintentional critique of such God-talk,
recounting his own religious upbringing which he described as culturally Christian yet simultaneously full of “phony religiosity.” “I thought I
was a Christian. I guess I was lost,” he matter-of-factly stated.
. . .
“When he was tempted in the desert, who was the one throwing Bible verses at him? Satan. That is a perfect picture of dead religion. Using the words
of God to do the opposite of what God does. It’s grotesque when you think about it. It’s demonic.”
“Keep in mind that when someone says ‘I am a Christian’ it may mean absolutely nothing,” Metaxas added for good measure, in case anybody
missed his point.
imho, Eric shredded the phony 'Christianity' of Obama and anyone else who displays a thorough-going EXTRINSIC religiosity to put on and take off
like a coat for manipulative utilitarian purposes.
Obama has typically disdained to attend the prayer breakfast. Guess what. This is an election year. Barf.
Even in his speech following . . . Obama took great pains to describe his pretend 'Christianity' as like, if not equal to, a lot of other religions.
He not only clearly does NOT 'get it' about Christianity--he evidently didn't realize what a fool he was making of himself to say such things
immeidately after Eric's vivid description about how Christianity was utterly unique.
I was reminded of Proverbs 30:21-23:
New Living Translation (©2007)
There are three things that make the earth tremble--no, four it cannot endure:
a slave who becomes a king, an overbearing fool who prospers, a bitter woman who finally gets a husband, a servant girl who supplants her mistress.
The Scripture above has NOTHING whatsoever to do with race or worth of individuals. It is totally about attitude, arrogance, spitefulness, bitterness,
The Teleprompter's Avatar-in-Chief made no secret of his hatred of America and of our flag before his SElection. He spoke of it openly using the word
"hatred." The globalist owned MSM still successfully sold him to the willfully blind sheeple. Then after his win, he spoke of 'laying aside such
I'm not convinced. He's been behaving thoroughly hatefully toward our jobs and our economic viability--of course, exactly as he was ordered to do by
his globalist puppet masters.
God alone is our HOPE.
We are on the brink of the Imposter-in-Chief and his puppet masters throwing the planet into WW3 in order to reduce the population as well as reduce
our Republic and all Western and developed nations to ashes . . . to enable easier overt establishment of the tyrannical globalist government.
They will carry out such plans overwhelmingly successfully . . . for a time . . . 3.5-7 years.
Thankfully, God and HIS angelic forces will be giving them a hard time along the way.
Eric Metaxas speech lays out the clear call to own authentic INTRINSIC Christianity as an individual choice and life-style--a way of life top to
bottom and inside-out.
NOTHING ELSE will make it in the coming traumas.
And no other religion or philosophy or way of life will offer any lasting hope whatsoever.
Eric wrote the biography of Wilberforce who brought an end to slavery and evidently wrote AMAZING GRACE.
He noted that Biblical ideas are powerful--such as the ideas that caring for the poor is good and slavery is wrong.
He challenged those who may have thought themselves better than Nazi Germans by asking who do we consider not quite fully human today.
Eric made clear that GOD is NOT fooled by our pretences, prancing in white robes of intellectual hogwash etc.
God wants the real thing.
With the globalist rise of the satan worshiping one world government . . . we will have displayed the most stark opposites in terms of values since
Elisha's confrontations of the prophets of Baal on Mt Carmel.
Thankfully, satan is not God's opposite--merely a piss-ant sized opponent in power terms.
