Here is another dialogue with someone on my Facebook. I normally don’t respond to negative comments, but sometimes I just have to do it!
I think it's wrong to use your art to pick on one person. Even if you don't like what he does I don't think this does anything but cultivate resentment & hate. Would this help lead Obama or anyone else to Jesus? Why don't you pray for his salvation instead of painting these pictures against him?
Misty, most Christians do just that; they mind their business and pray. You are correct that the painting cultivates resentment, and among some even hate. If I was alive at the time of the War of Independence with Britain should I have only prayed for King George’s soul? What was the intent of the Founders when they signed the Declaration of Independence? Fortunately, we still have our rights and a voting process. I will do all in my power to awaken as many people as possible to the dire situation we face. There are a lot of “good” things in this world that do not lead a person to Jesus that are important none the less. I have prayed for Obama and our country many times, but God requires us to do all we can after we pray. "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed all things are possible." This painting is my way of calling out Obama and his administration. Can you think of a better way?
