There are two articles published today that caught my attention regarding Obama’s moral/religious beliefs.
One is Cathleen Falsani’s attempt in today’s Chicago Sun Times to set the record straight about the impression left by her original religious interview with Obama in which he declares that, though he is a Christian, his is the sort of Christianity that believes there are many ways to the Father.
Of course, this is a free country and a person is free to define Christianity however he/she likes…but that isn’t the definition provided by the Gospel of Jesus (Yeshua). Yeshua said “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6).
This Scriptural admonition (held by many to be the “heart” of the entire New Testament) is in direct opposition to the faith of Obama and his pal Oprah wherein there are many ways to God.
That said, this is not a judgment of Obama…just a clarification of definitions. He and Oprah are certainly free to preach whatever Gospel they like. But I hope they don’t mind if some of us try to clarify their meaning and its inconsistency with the actually Word of Yeshua.
Yet, what about “moral relativism”?
Here’s what Jonah has to say…
Statements such as this have caused many people to wonder whether Obama has a God complex or is hopelessly arrogant. For the record, sin isn’t being out of alignment with your own values (if it were, Hannibal Lecter wouldn’t be a sinner because his values hold that it’s OK to eat people) nor is it being out of alignment with Obama’s — unless he really is our Savior.
There is, however, a third possibility. Obama is a postmodernist.
