Is Obama a Christian? Or does he want us to think he is? Or does he think he is in his own pluralistic way?

"Smiling faces, smiling faces, sometimes, they don't tell the truth."

[This is from Fox News website.]

"Thursday Obama got a little more personal and told the crowd at the National Prayer Breakfast that faith wasn't really in his background or instilled much from his parents, but nearly 20 years ago he accepted Christ as his savior. The president said his faith though wasn't always a "straight line" and had some "twists and turns."

He said his faith has grown since coming into office, and even more so when others doubt it.

"My Christian faith then has been a sustaining force for me over these last few years, all the more so when Michelle and I hear our faith questioned from time to time. We are reminded that ultimately what matters is not what other people say about us, but whether we're being true to our conscience and true to our god. Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you, as well," Obama said.

Obama said that his prayers focus on three areas: 1) General prayers to face challenges, often out of urgency 2) Humility 3) To grow closer to God.

"You know, in our own lives, it's easy to be consumed by our daily worries and our daily concerns, and it is even easier at a time when everybody's busy, everybody is stressed, and everybody, our culture, is obsessed with wealth and power and celebrity, and often it takes a brush with hardship or tragedy to shake us out of that, to remind us of what matters most," he said.

"Scripture tells us that there is evil in the world, and that terrible things happen for reasons that defy human understanding. In the words of Job, "When I looked for light, then came darkness. Bad things happen, and we have to guard against simple explanations in the aftermath." Obama said.

Obama also quoted the book of Job in Thursday's remarks at the prayer breakfast.

"As it's written in Job, God's voice thunders in marvelous ways. He does great things beyond our understandings. The challenge I find, then, is to balance this uncertainty, this humility with the need to fight for deeply held convictions, to be open to other points of view, but firm in our core principles. And I pray for this wisdom every day," he said."

Our Lord Jesus said, "“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."

That is one scary verse. I wonder does Barak know it? I pray he does come to know it, and fear it.
This man who says he is a Christian, says partial-birth abortion is a good thing, and yet he will make you believe through his crafty words and ways, that he is against partial-birth abortion.
Barak is pro-infanticide, and voted against the 'Born Alive Act', and yet he will make you think he is not that way.

This man is slick. I don't believe he is a Christian at all. Many say they are Christians, when they are not genuinely. This man is pluralistic, and has no conviction that Christ is the only forgiveness for sin. If he did he would surely tell us, wouldn't he?

His fruit is evil, and he says this evil is good.

I pray Christ will bring him to the Cross, and open his understanding to the truth of redemption and mercy, and so he shall come to repentance, and forsake his own understanding, which is completely and utterly false. Barak Obama has a twisted gospel, and not the Gospel of grace and truth.

I'm skeptical of him, but God knows the man's heart.

At a purely secular level, I sometimes wonder how history will show this President.

The liberals control the media these days, but what if that changes, and conservatives are more influential in the future? Do you think that would matter as it relates to whether the history books treat him with honor or contempt?

The Media is powerful Craver. They make a difference, that's for sure.

How much, I don't know.

A genuine Christian will share his love for Christ, and have agrateful heart that his sins are blotted out.
He will have a fear of our Lord as well. Not an afraid fear, but an in awe fear.

Obama doesn't have these. Not to mention he is staunchly pro-partial-birth abortion, and even voted agaisnt the Born Alive Act, which means he would rather see a botched aborted baby die in a closet, then for the mother to have to keep this baby and be punished.

This is an evil heart. It just is.

And Barak will twist this all around with his silky smooth ways and words.

You got me a little fired up brother.

I do pray for Barak to come to the Cross, and for God to show him the truth of Christ, not what Barak has hear from his racist pastor, and other liberal flase teachers.

Paul says, "Let any one, even me, be accursed if he messes with the truth of the Gospel."

Hey Don,

I read this post of yours from my phone the day you posted it and then forget to comment on it when I got home.

I think your post is right on. Obviously we can’t look into Obama’s heart but we sure can (and should) look into his actions. I honestly didn’t think that I could be more disgusted with a person than when they were o.k. with Partial Birth Abortion, but when I heard that Obama voted against the Baby Born Alive act… I mean seriously… he’s about one notch off of Peter Singer who thinks it’s o.k. to kill a child till it’s two!?!

That said, at least I haven’t heard Singer running around claiming to be a Christian.
