Pastor Conrad Mbewe issues African caution about President Obama...

(Tim) Readers may remember our introduction of Pastor Conrad Mbewe, leader of Zambia's vital Reformed churches. Conrad has started blogging. For several months we've had a link to him here at Baylyblog.

Two recent posts merit our readers' attention. The earlier one is a meditation on the current state of South Africa and the reformed church's witness there. David Wegener commends this post to us. The more recent post is Conrad's caution to fellow Africans caught up in the Messianic (my word) hopes of their continent concerning our latest president, Barack Obama. Both are worth your time.

As always, Pastor Mbewe is a wise living demonstration of the power of the Word of God wielded by a man of faith.


My wife and I read that a couple of days ago. We both thought that it was really good. My favorite part about it was the fact that while we were reading it, she said something along the lines of "I like this guy."

It fascinates me that people all over the world care so much about our presidential race.

"Africa's misplaced excitment about Barack Obama" --Excellent!

> [Conrad:] There is an unspoken wish in many African hearts that many of our woes in Africa will now be over because our calls for help will be handled more expeditiously from the USA since “one of us” has ascended the throne.

"Help" is on the way! Brother Obama has already re-opened the governmental purse strings to fund abortion overseas.

_Obama removes restrictions on abortion funding_

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Friday will lift restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, reversing a policy of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush, an administration official said.

"It will be today. He's going to make an executive order (lifting the global gag rule)," the official said.

The Democratic president's decision is a victory for advocates of abortion rights on an issue that has become a tit-for-tat policy change each time the White House shifts from one party to the other in recent years.

When the ban was in place, no U.S. government funding for family planning services could be given to clinics or groups that offer abortion services or counseling in other countries even if the funds for those activities come from non-U.S. government sources.


Your tax dollars back at work! And they're worried about abuse at Guantanamo...
