Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
In the new ebook, "Not My Brothers' Keeper: How Barack Obama Misleads America with Socialist Misinterpretations of Bible Verses," author Joe Gimenez examines the religious elements of Obama's speeches and compares them to the actual lessons Jesus taught in his parables
"Would Jesus support Obama's conclusions that government should be the Christian arm for charity, equalizing resources in the name of brotherly love, of spreading the wealth around?," Gimenez asks.
"In sum, No!," he says.
A publicist by trade, Gimenez uses his strong literary analysis to understanding how Barack Obama interprets several Bible passages to support his socialistic views and why those interpretations are subject to question.
“The parables of the Tenants and the Talents are but two examples of how Jesus is perfectly comfortable with the economic constructs of free enterprise. If he had not been, he would have said otherwise, or constructed his parables differently,” Gimenez says. "Just because a U.S. President says that Christianity is about being your brothers keeper, it's not, and people should take this opportunity ahead of the 2012 election to re-examine what Jesus actually said about free enterprise and the economic constructs that make people healthy, from a spiritual perspective."
In contrast to the "greed is the ultimate evil" mantra that will be a core of the Democratic president's fall campaign, Gimenez demonstrates how Jesus, speaking through his Parables, and interpreted without a socialist perspective, is clear on his support for free enterprise. Gimenez goes further, providing readers with examples in movies and real life where free enterprise (and not capitalism) is an activity capable of building each individual's character and developing virtue in them, in addition to providing for our personal needs. This is a far more desirable outcome than the redistributionist goals of Obama and even many in the clergy, he says.
While this book is coming out shortly before the 2012 elections, the book will have long staying power.
Barack Obama and other political and religious leaders will continue to mislead people about a certain participatory feel-goodism that comes with thinking that their government is striving to be their brothers and sisters, Gimenez said. But he points out that the only person who asked whether he was his brother's keep was Bible's first murderer, Cain.
"Surely this should cause concern about what being a "keeper" truly means, when contrasted with the free will that God wants everyone to use, for themselves and others, without the intervening force of government," Gimenez said.
Along the way, the Not My Brothers Keeper ebook takes you on a journey of understanding, about the differences between free enterprise and capitalism, free markets and government engineered activity. It asks readers to view a 2008 movie, Sunshine Cleaning, that uses a free enterprise economy as backdrop to create a memorable and enchanting movie experience that's far different than most Hollywood films today. And it offers real life examples of people who've turned their life around using free enterprise, not socialism.
The ebook, "Not My Brothers' Keeper: How Barack Obama Misleads America with Socialist Misinterpretations of Bible Verses," is available exclusively today on Amazon.com for $2.99.
