Dear Mr. and Mrs. Obama:

In yesterday's newspaper I read some statements that the two of you have recently made and I fear that you have been misinformed. As I am sure that neither of you would want to mislead the American people, I felt it was my duty as a citizen to see that you received the TRUTH.

In the New York Times, William Kristol quoted you, Mrs. Obama, as saying "Barack knows that at some level there's a hole in our souls". Now so far you are right on track, but then he quotes you at another time with this variation to that statement "Obama is the only person in this race who understands that, that before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation." Herein lies the problem.

You see, Mrs. Obama, you are absolutely right that there is a hole in the soul of man. More accurately, there is a void in the heart of everyone who is born....a God-shaped void. Man is incapable of filling that hole. No, Mr. Obama, not even you can "fix our souls"! That is something only God can do.

Unfortunately, Mr. and Mrs. Obama, you have bought into the lie of our culture that says it's all about MAN. But let me tell you what our creator, God, has to say about that :

"By the word of the Lord were the heavens made [not man] and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathered the waters of the sea together as a heap; he lays up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the Lord, let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him [not of Obama]. For HE spoke and it was done [don't think you can top that, sir]; he commanded and it stood fast. " Psalm 33:6-9 (KJV)

Now this next part is very important because the Psalmist is trying to get your attention and give you a warning. I hope you will listen (and you might want to also pass this on to your good friend, Oprah):

"The Lord HIMSELF brings the counsel of the heathen to nought; he makes the devices of the people to none effect. The counsel of the Lord stands FOREVER, the thoughts of His heart to all generations. BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD [no matter who is president] and the people whom He has chosen for his own inheritance." Psalm 33 10-12 (KJV)

"Behold the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him [not those who campaign or vote for Obama], upon them who hope in His mercy; to deliver their soul from death [He alone has control over our souls] and to keep them alive...Our soul waits for the Lord; HE is our help [not Obama...or any other candidate for that matter] and our shield. For our heart shall trust in Him because we have trusted in His holy name." Psalm 33: 18-21(KJV)

You see, Mr. Obama, you may be the leading Democratic candidate for the presidency of the United States. You may be running a slick campaign and charming millions of people with your promises of "change", but be clear about one thing, YOU CANNOT FIX THE SOULS OF MAN! Only God can do that. No amount of money or prestige or charisma can do that. No matter how educated you are, no matter how polished you are, no matter who you know or how much influence you may wield, God is the ONLY one who can fix a man's soul.

Since you were apparently deceived about this, it stands to reason that you have not allowed HIM to fix YOUR soul. But He loves you and He desires to do that. He died for you both, Mr. and Mrs. Obama, and He offers you both the gift of eternal strings attached. I hope that you will give your hearts to Him today and allow HIM to fill that hole in your souls. He is, after all, the only One who can.

GREAT letter!! It saddens me to see people fainting at his rallies, flocking to see him, chanting CHANGE with him, and not fully understanding that not all change is good!!

Look deep into our hearts America...we have changed...and it's not been good!
