I know many people don’t care whether or not our president is a Christian, so I’m not trying to convince anyone that we shouldn’t elect Obama because he isn’t a Christian.  But, for as many people that don’t care whether Obama is a Christian, there are many who do care, and I think it is only fair that they understand how badly they are being deceived.  Obama claims to be a Christian.  He claims to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  But what are his actual beliefs beyond that?  In an article titled Obama: Never a Christian, World Net Daily founder Joseph Farrah writes about how Obama’s own words condemn him.  Farrah writes:

Asked what he believes, Obama said: “I am a Christian. I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people. That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there’s an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived.”

So how many paths to the same place does he think there are?  Did he learn this from Jesus?  I don’t think he did.  Obama clearly doesn’t know what it means to be a Christian.  He also has said that he doesn’t know if he is going to heaven, nor does he he believe that hell is the alternative to following Jesus.  Regarding Obama’s prayer life, Farrah writes:

Obama says he prays regularly. But look how he describes that process: “It’s not formal, me getting on my knees. I think I have an ongoing conversation with God. … I’m constantly asking myself questions about what I’m doing, why I am doing it. The biggest challenge, I think, is always maintaining your moral compass.”

So whom is he talking to in these conversations? He’s talking to himself! He’s talking to his under-developed conscience – the one that told him it was the right thing to do to prevent doctors and nurses from offering life-saving support to babies born alive after botched abortions.

Again, I know that not everybody cares about whether the president is a Christian.  But what people should care about is the way Obama is misrepresenting himself.  He says he’s a Christian, but we see that he doesn’t really know what it means to be a Christian.  He says he isn’t a socialist, yet he is very open about “spreading the wealth” and creating massive government-run entitlement programs.  He says he was never hired by ACORN as a community organizer, which is true, but he was invited to work with them and then trained people for them for almost ten years (not to mention he represented them as their lawyer).  He says he has never been close to William Ayers, but they have served on two boards together—the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which failed in their effort to distribute money to improve Chicago schools, and the Woods Fund, which distributed grant money to ACORN.  Obama also launched his political career in Ayers’ home.  And there is some speculation that Ayers basically wrote (or, at least, rewrote) Obama’s book, Dreams of My Father.

But, I digress.

Obama will say anything he has to say to win this election.  It isn’t about truth.  It isn’t about substance.  It’s about a political grab for power.  And if Obama has lied about so many things already, what else might there be which he is lying about and/or will lie about in the future, heaven forbid, as our president?
