Discussion for Psalms 109:8

  • Patricia for verse 8
    For those of you who are quick to assume that the above scripture should pertain to the current President, you should probably stop and ask yourself what would Jesus do? Would he curse him and send him to the bottomless pit or would he pray for him? What ever happened to "Pray for kings, and for all that are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty? or for that matter the golden rule "Do to others as you would have them do to you. " What if the president was your son, your brother, your nephew, your grandson? would you be that quick to apply that scripture to him or would you pray for him and encourage others to do so? Before you cast stones or point the finger of judgement on the man just remember that while you 're pointing one finger at him there are three more pointing right back at you.
  • To a believer in God....Even Jesus didn 't go anywhere anytime. He had enough wisdom to know the enemy and protect Himself until He was to lay down His life. Beinging a believer doesn 't make you stupid....necessarily!
  • Mark D. for verse 8
    The verse in context refers to what should be done with the wicked and is quite judgemental. As far as reference to Obama, it should apply to him, and Bush, and Clinton, and Bush again and most of the elite who are subverting this country's principals and replacing them with a Godless society of socialism/communism. It's not about Republican vs. Democrat it is about good vs. evil and always has been. Wrong is wrong no matter who you are and Obama has done as much to help destroy this country as Bush did.
  • 1 Corinthians 6:2
    Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
  • I guess we can find the devil anywhere. Even on a bible search web site! I can't believe that people are on here blaming President Obama for the mess that we are in. This all started why before he became President! If you don't like him that's your right, but you honestly cannot blame the man for problems that occur before he took office. Whoever took office after former President Bush was going to have a big mess on their hands, be it Democrate or Rupublican.

    We can all do a little something to help make this world a better place for our children to live. Set the example: help a neighbor, volunteer at school, at a rec center, etc. but do something!!!
  • A believer in God in the name of Jesus for verse 8
    First of all you need to judge, evaluate, and talk about yourself and what are you doing to make this world a better place to live? What are you doing to help educate, train, feed, protect, or give to our children and others? President Obama is in the position he is because voters and God put him there. Whether you like him or not - that's your opinion and no one really cares when they support/like him. Pray for our nation if you know how and stop doing the devil's work-hating on others. Remember, Pres. Obama didn't get/put us in the predicament that this world is in now. You have to take a strong look into history for facts that have been covered up by others. When/if you can make positive changes to yourself/others then you can really talk, but until then be quiet. Educate yourself by learning the truth of matters. To God be all the Glory. Before it is over you will confess that Jesus in Lord. Be blessed and take care of your world.
