What do you think about Obama's desire to emulate God's characteristics (reference: http://www.raptureready.com/featured/funk/ooo.html) such as:
This term refers to the all powerful nature of God. Looking at Webster again, this is defined as "almighty power; unlimited or infinite power; a word in strictness applicable only to God." He is the all-powerful Lord who has created all things and sustains them by His Word
This term refers to the all knowing nature of God. Webster defines it as "the quality of knowing all things at once; universal knowledge; knowledge unbounded or infinite." He knows our very thoughts, our feelings, our desires and our needs. He knows our words before we say them and he knows our thoughts before we think them. He knows all of our ways. In fact, God even knew us before we were born. There are no secrets before Almighty God. In short, God possesses superior knowledge and wisdom about everything and that knowledge is all encompassing. When we say that He knows our thoughts, what we really mean is that He knows the thoughts of every person on the planet right now, at this instant – all six billion plus people. He knows everything about everybody all the time, down to the most intimate detail. He doesn't need to read "People" magazine or the "National Inquirer" to find out what people are doing. He doesn't have to consult your family or friends to find out what you are thinking; He already knows it about you and everyone else on earth. That fact will give you pause if you dwell upon it.
Omnipresence is a theological term that refers to the unlimited nature of God or His ability to be everywhere at all times. Relying upon Webster's once again, we see omnipresence defined as "presence in every place at the same time; unbounded or universal presence; ubiquity." Unlike the idols of ancient cultures or the mythical gods of Greek and Roman culture, God is not limited to one altar, one temple or one geographic area. God reveals Himself in His word as being everywhere. God was present as Lord in all creation (Ps 139:7-12), and there is no escaping Him.
When I was growing up, children would sometimes taunt each other with, "My dad can beat up your dad." Of course, no one ever found out if it were true because parents were more mature than seven year olds. I know now that it is true. Despite my periodic despair and disbelief, my Father will triumph. He always has before and there is no reason, especially now, why He won't again. But it goes much further than just God's ultimate victory over Satan at the end of this age.
God knows all things, He sees all things and He is everywhere all of the time. God is the Creator of all and through His power, He holds all things together. He plays many roles in the lives of His children; He is our Comforter, our Savior, our Redeemer and our Friend. Nay, He is more than that; He is our Father who renews our strength and our spirit. Nothing is hidden from Him and nothing is beyond His power.
27 Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel, "My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God"? 28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isa. 40:27-31 (NIV)
During the end times of the church age, people will grow weary; they will stumble and fall. However, those who rely upon the Lord for strength instead of their own power and abilities will be renewed. They will not just walk or run but they will soar like eagles.
Soaring is an attitude based upon faith in the power of God and the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Are you soaring with the eagles or are you chained to this earth with its worries, frustrations and hardships? You could be soaring if the all-knowing, all-powerful, all-seeing God of the universe is your hope and your strength. It's your choice.

The next article will blow your mind. For some reason, Obama feels the need to control everything, which requires taking that control FROM someone. The internet infrastructure is built on customers buying what they want and can afford and the providers battling to serve the customer better, meet their needs and come up with new things to entice them or solve a problem. Obama wants to interfere with the natural progression of the way this business builds and interject control, regulations, rules, restrictions and so on, to fix it. Was it broke? No, but he wants you to fear him and buckle until you don't think without clearing it through your Obama filter first. That is not being a Christian as you proclaim Obama. Being a Christian is not invoking rules and regulations beyond what God's holy word says. Your role is to SERVE us. You are an elected public official. YOU SERVE US. We do NOT SERVE you. A servant does not control the master. Every public official is bound to serve the American people and stand to protect our freedoms and maintain our liberties and our REPUBLIC so we can keep her. You should not be pushing anything down our throats! If you desire a database with all our information, then what innocent thing do you plan to do with it?
Obama, after you write all our names on your blackboard in an attempt to embarrass and shame us, remember how important you said it was to embrace our differences. Looks like you are a hypocrite with some power and control issues. Step down if you can not step up! By the way, where is your birth certificate and where are your college records? If they exist, show them. We have to show our records to get a license, etc., yet to run the country, it isn't required of you? Yes, it is! You want to demand respect and punish those who dissent, yet - you say this without following the rules yourself!

MILLIONS UNDER SURVEILLANCE BY OBAMA'S NEW INTERNET SPY PROGRAM

The Obama White House "new media" operations Czar recently contracted a technology vendor to conduct an enormous secret program to gather personal information on millions of Americans from Internet social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, according to the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC).
The Obama minions are interested in information such as comments, tag lines, emails, audio, and video that mention -- or related to -- President Barack Obama.
The sites targeted for surveillance include Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr and others –- any space where the White House "maintains a presence."
According to the NLPC, this is the third controversy involving the White House internet operations in less than a month.
During the heated health care debate, President Obama asked Americans to send information about critics of the White House health care effort to a special White House email address. The ensuing firestorm of caused the White House to terminate the email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the web site created for that purpose.
Subsequently, Fox News White House correspondent Major Garrett uncovered the Obama Administration sending email spam from the White House supporting the President's health care position. Again the White House was forced to back down.
Now the same people at the White House are at it again with an ambitious plan to harvest huge amounts of information from the web and specifically social networking sites, according to NLPC.
And the news media silence on this latest politically-charged action is deafening, according to conservative journalists.
Last week, NewsWithViews.com reported on Obama's intention to appoint a so-called Cyber Czar. During a White House announcement televised on Fox News, CNN and other news networks, Obama said he will appoint a cyber security coordinator -- or Cyber Czar -- for the critical infrastructure that all Americans depend on.
"We will ensure that these networks are secure, trustworthy and resilient," he said. "We will deter, prevent, detect and defend against attacks, and recover quickly from any disruptions or damage."
The cyber security office will orchestrate and integrate all cyber security policies for the government, the president said. It will work closely with the Office of Management and Budget to ensure agency budgets reflect those priorities, and, in the event of major cyber incident or attack, it will coordinate government response.
But Critics point out that any high-tech program that entails government intrusion should be carefully monitored by not only the US Congress but also private sector experts in cyber security and computer-based espionage.
"People went ballistic when they discovered the Bush White House authorized the interception of telephone and other electronic communications by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and rightly so. Yet, I haven't heard a peep from these same people who claim they are concerned with 'privacy rights,'" said security expert and former NYPD cop Mike Fitzgerald.
"This may come back to haunt us as the first step down a truly slippery slope," said former the Police detective and director of security.
"The technology involved is so complicated that it may take computer scientists to discover whether the government is protecting Americans on the worldwide web or spying on them. And what are businesses that rely on the Internet supposed to do if the President closes down the Internet?" asks Sam McCarthy a former police commander now a computer security expert..
The cyber infrastructure is not limited to the federal government. The office will work with state and local governments and international partners to combat cyber attacks, and also will work with the private sector to ensure an organized and unified response to future cyber incidents, Obama stated.
Experts agree that America's economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on cyber security, which also affects public safety and national security. However, most experts contacted by NewsWithViews.com said that cyber security should be the responsibility of the private sector not government officials.
"We count on computer networks to deliver our oil and gas, our power and our water," said McCarthy.
"Computers help run public transportation networks from the skies to subways, he noted, and hackers have launched attacks on electrical grids," he added.
Part of the Obama program is a national campaign to promote cyber security awareness and digital literacy. The effort also will be part of the president's initiative to build a digital work force for the 21st century. However, according to security experts, Obama is seeking powers never before given to a President even during the height of the Cold War.
"Once Americans realize what's happening it may be too late thanks to Obama's supporters in the news media. Do a search and you won't see stories about this power grab in the major media," warns Baker.
