Michelle Obama said,'her husband has brought us out of the darkness into the light'.
It sounds like to me that Michelle Obama thinks her husband is like Jesus Christ, 'cause only Jesus can bring you out of the darkness and into the light. She is playing with fire when she likens her husband to Christ. Maybe she meant that her husband was like a snake slithering out of his dark hole.
Michelle Obama made a remarkable claim when talking up her husband, President Barack Obama, at a campaign event earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.
The crowd of nearly 450 folks applauded as the first lady likened her husband to a Jesus-like figure.
In the book of Matthew, we read, "the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up." (Matthew 4:16) The phrase is used to describe the words Jesus preached.
In Micah, light, however, is a reference to God's words. "Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me," it says in Micah 7:8.
Either way, in religious terms, light is used to denote the true path, presented either by God or a savior. Or by Barack Obama.
Here’s the full context of the remark:
So I have one last question for you: Are you in?
MRS. OBAMA: Wait, wait, wait, I couldn’t hear you. Are you in?
MRS. OBAMA: Are you in?
MRS. OBAMA: Because I am so in. I am so in. I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This President has brought us out of the dark and into the light. (Applause.)
But we need each and every one of you as fired up as you’ve been. You need to find 10 other people just like you, shake them up, right? (Applause.) Remind them what’s at stake. Don’t let them get confused. Have them understand what we are trying to do for our children.
She has no idea what she is talking about, she just rattles.
WHAT SAY YOU?
