So I said to him, “Barack, I know Abe Lincoln,
And you ain’t Abe Lincoln ..”
Obama has made numerous attempts to quote Lincoln, SO WHY DOESN’T OBAMA USE THIS FAMOUS LINCOLN QUOTE:
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
… Abraham Lincoln
Pastor Ken Blue was born in Boswell, Ark. In 1955 he accepted Christ as his Savior. He and his wife Joyce were married in 1955. They have 5 children. He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Bible College in 1969 and started the Open Door Baptist Church in Lynnwood, Wa. where he pastored for 39 years. Because of health issues (ALS) he was forced to resign as pastor. It is his desire to continue to be used of God to help pastors and believers through this ministry.

I love the input and quote from Abraham Lincoln. The quote “You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.” That sums it up perfectly to what is going on at this time. Thank you for posting to you blog.
-I also will be buying you new book as soon as I can get a copy.

Thank you for this thought…it gives me ammo for a “misguided friend.”
I met a friend of your at a recent Fellowship Meeting. He said to send you a big hello as he is not Commuter Savvy. But he can preach!
He is Evangelist, John Hankins of Sebring, FL.
And another hello, from John and me, to both you and Joyce.
And TONS OF LOVE.
