Why Biden Pointed America’s Attention Away From the Cross

William McKane (1921- 2004) was a Jewish, Hebrew and Hebraic studies specialist. The distinguished Old Testament scholar and former professor emeritus of Hebrew and Oriental languages at St. Andrews University noted in his “Proverbs Commentary”:

There is a kind of person who turns Yahweh’s order upside down and who tries to draw others into his wrongheadedness and confusion by creating ethical chaos. He walks along the paths of darkness [Proverbs 2:13b], himself devoid of all ethical illumination; he deserts straight roads in preference for those paths and tracks that twist and turn. This is a comparison between a man who is so devious and crafty that he loses himself and others in the maze of his cleverness, and the forthright, open man, who means what he says and whose actions are as unequivocal as his words.

As Proverbs 1:10 (KJV) warns, “if sinners entice thee,” such a perfidious persuasion took place on Easter Sunday when President Joe Biden treacherously transitioned Easter Sunday into Transgender Visibility Day, the aggrandizement and attempted normalization of gender dysphoria, a contagious mental disorder. As a devout member of the secular clergy, Biden crooned from the bully pulpit:

On Transgender Day of Visibility, we honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans and reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union – where all people are created equal and treated equally throughout their lives.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility.

I call upon all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender people throughout our Nation and to work toward eliminating violence and discrimination based on gender identity.

By virtue of the authority vested in him by the Constitution, the president evidently was in a better position to fix the nation’s attention upon the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Lord of life, instead of celebrating a perverse ideology. However, that would have required a quality the president doesn’t appear to possess.

The New York Times alluded to Biden’s history of lacking habitual truthfulness over his career by writing, “In 1988, Joe Biden was prone to embellishment. Hints of that linger today.”

Candidate Biden was recorded earlier in his career as saying, “I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship, and ended up in the top half of my class. I was the outstanding student in the political science department at the end of my year and graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school.”

Biden later conceded that 1) he did not graduate in the top half of his law school class, 2) he did not have three degrees from college and 3) he was not named Outstanding Political Science Student in college. The truth is that student Biden ended up near the bottom of his class with only one degree, not three, and ranked 76th in a class of 85 at the University of Syracuse Law School.

An abomination such as Transgender Visibility Day was even too much for His Eminence Wilton Cardinal Gregory (born 1947) of the Archdiocese of Washington, DC. Ed O’Keefe, CBS senior White House and political correspondent on “Face The Nation,” asked the archbishop, “In the case of the president, do you get a sense that his regular attendance and adherence to the faith resonate with American Catholics?”

To which Cardinal Gregory answered: “I would say he’s very sincere about his faith. But like a number of Catholics, he picks and chooses dimensions of the faith to highlight while ignoring or even contradicting other parts. There is a phrase we have used in the past, ‘a cafeteria Catholic,’ [where] you choose that which is attractive and dismiss that which is challenging.

“… I would say there are things, especially in terms of the [pro-] life issues, there are things that he chooses to ignore or he uses the current situation as a political pawn.”

Increasingly, the loss of America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and the collapse of the once biblically based culture established by the Founding Fathers throughout the 17th and 18th centuries are becoming more and more alarming. If the glory of a nation lies in its righteousness (Prov. 14:34) it logically follows that the president would elucidate on Jesus Christ’s death and Resurrection.

The Lord guarantees five things:

— Every word of God is true.

— Forgiveness of sin is available to all.

— Death has been overcome.

— Hope never ends.

— Joy lasts forever for those in God’s care.

King Belshazzar’s sacrilege at a banquet in Daniel 5:1-30 represents a fitting metaphor for President Biden’s willful and barefaced attack on Easter Sunday. When the gold and silver goblets [that had been taken from the temple in Jerusalem] were brought in … “they drank the wine and praised the gods of gold and silver, bronze, iron, wood, and stone” (vv. 1-4, NASB).

While they were reveling, the hand of God appeared, and a message was written on the wall. “Then the king’s face grew pale, and his thoughts alarmed him; the joints and muscles of his hips and back weakened, and his knees began knocking together” (v. 6).

Astrologers, soothsayers and the wise men of Babylon were called to interpret the writing on the wall, but no one could. Hearing the commotion, the queen came to inspect and recalled to the King, “There is a man in your kingdom in whom is the Spirit of the Holy God … Then Daniel was brought in” (v. 11a, 13a, NKJV).

Daniel interpreted the handwriting but first admonished the king: “You have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven. They have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your lords, your wives and your concubines, have drunk wine from them. And you have praised the gods of silver and gold, bronze and iron, wood and stone, which do not see or hear or know; and the God who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways, you have not glorified” (v. 23).

“Here is what these words mean: Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians … That very night Belshazzar, king of the Chaldeans, was slain” (v. 26-30, NIV).

Known as the Shakespeare of the Puritans, the great English clergyman Thomas Adams (1583-1652) offered a brilliant insight into God’s ways: “He permitted His temple to be sacked and rifled, the holy vessels to be profaned and caroused in; but did not God’s smile make Belshazzar to tremble at the handwriting on the wall? Oh, what are His frowns, if His smiles be so terrible!”

President Biden has shown throughout his 50-year political tenure that he neither understands the things of God nor walks in His ways. If he did, he would have known that, as A.W. Pink wrote, “God will never have forgotten that the Cross is the basis of all blessing.”

Yet: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal. 6:7).

Thankfully, Gideons and Rahabs have begun to stand in America’s public square.
