The question comes up again, is Obama a Christian? And how has he stacked up to G.W. Bush as a Christian? The media is now saying that Obama has to be more of a Christian because he said the name of Jesus more times than George W. If that was not the most childish bunch of junk I’ve heard in a long time. It’s actually pathetic.
If Obama is, indeed, a Christian,is there existing proof? Is there fruit of his so-called faith in Jesus Christ? As a Christian and a Minister, I say NO. This is politically motivated. Obama has no public profession of Christ other than in his elaborate speeches written for him.
“But I think it’s a veneer, a facade that covers over a lot of policies that are anti-Christian.” That includes Obama’s stance in favor of abortion rights, according to Tony Perkins, president Family Research Council.
For Obama, the Christian rhetoric offers an opportunity to connect with many more supporters in a nation which nearly 85% of the public believe in God.
This is where we can get into doctrine OR headlines, although I think sometimes they go hand in hand. In the Bible, the Pharisees were known for their public displays of ‘religion’; outward prayer, keeping the Mosaic Law, self-righteousness. But it was Jesus that condemned them for doing all of the ‘stuff’ and nothing in Faith. So-called Liberal ‘Christians’ – Pharisees – take the correct doctrine of the Bible and twist it to suit them; In other words, they will outwardly use the name of Jesus, go to a church, pray loudly and even get baptized but behind closed doors, it’s a whole different story. They believe in abortion on demand, gay marriage, taking prayer out of schools, removing religious symbols that would offend someone of a different faith or of no faith at all, taking away our Constitutional rights and giving the government the right to tax us for it.
Scripture is clear in this matter: Matthew 23:12-14 says, “12And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. 13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. 14Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.” – NKJV.
It is the stance on abortion that should separate the Pharisees from the Christians.
Let’s get back to Obama…his Pharisaical view is obvious and dangerous. And though I don’t necessarily believe in denominational-ism, Obama has not offered one up yet as belonging to one at all or ever. All that anyone can determine is that Obama was a professed Muslim at one time in his life. He has not chosen a church since being president and has so far only attended one service since January. When you are still ‘looking for a spiritual home’, then all you’re really doing is looking good while wasting time.
Obama can’t keep up this pace of being a fake Christian forever. Eventually Barack HUSSEIN Obama will be humbled and great condemnation will be given to him who vainly use the name of Jesus.
