His Name Is Obama

Use it carefully if you bear God's name!

Obama: How mangled, twisted, and corrupted it becomes in the hearts and tongues of the Talkerati and the Bloggerati.

Obama: The last name of the 44th President of the United States.

So use it properly. Like this:

  • President Obama
  • Mr. Obama
  • Obama

Don’t be disrespectful of the President, like this:

The One
The O
The Zero
The Man-Child
The Anointed One
The Messiah

The Bible tells me so.

“Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king” (1 Peter 2:17).

Yeah, fear God.

If you can’t honor the President and his name for his own sake, do so for God’s sake.

Or will you bear His name in vain as well?

PS: This is apolitical because I’m apolitical. This is an appeal to my fellow Christians.

  1. Interesting to see your position. I’ve taken on an American Christian blogger before, for being disrespectful of your president. She did not like it too much, and there followed all sorts of justifications for taking the stance she did. I stopped arguing. Refreshing to read the above.

  2. YES we must respect our presidents.
    I would MUCH rather have a christian as PRESIDENT than

    a MORMAN. LET”S keep Obana in office. THANKS B.

  3. We’ll said Mark! I saw so many Christians upset with the left mocking of Pres Bush’s name while he was in office and then turn right around and be just as offensive with President Obama’s name. It makes me sad, to see our brethren succomb to that kind of actions. While I don’t agree with 99.99999999% of what Pres. Obama is doing, he is still the President of our wonderful country! Thanks for the reminder!!

    • Thanks, Steve! 🙂 I appreciate your stopping by to read and comment a bit. The way folks mangle his name reminds me of BDS. In fact, about a month after President Obama’s 2008 election, I wrote a piece here about it: BDS, Phase 2?

  4. Thank you Mark for this. I have said the same to some of my brothers and sisters, but they then decide that I am somehow advocating for one position or another. I am not. I am trying to do what God has told me to do and render unto the authorities, the respect due to their office. Well said.

Comment? Sure!

Above all, love God!
