Why Americans Donít Think Obama is a Christian
The Christian Diarist ^ | June 25, 2012 | JP

Posted on 06/25/2012 7:13:22 AM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST

President Obama proclaims himself a Christian. But two-third of Americans either don’t know it or don’t believe it, according to a new Gallup poll.

I count myself among those who don’t believe it. And not just because the president has managed to attend Sunday church services not even a tenth as many times as he has stolen away from the White House to play golf.

The Scripture warns us to beware of those “who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits?”

I believe, as do many evangelical Christians, that Obama is such a ravenous wolf. And the fruits of his presidency bear witness.

On Obama’s watch, more than three and a half million abortions have been performed in this country. Yet, the professed Christian has done absolutely nothing to stop –or even reduce – the ungodly slaughter of the unborn.

That’s because Obama has cast his lot with the nation’s abortionists. “I am pro-choice,” he has declared. He also has stated, “I believe in Roe v. Wade,” the 39-year-old Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion on demand, that denied the humanity of the unborn.

Meanwhile, Obama has so ingratiated himself to the homosexual community that Newsweek magazine admiringly proclaimed him America’s “first gay president.”

He earned that dubious title by repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, ordering his Justice Department not to defend in court the federal “Defense of Marriage” law, and, most recently, coming out in favor of same-sex marriage.

What particularly offended about Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage is that he dared to suggest that Christ would bless such unholy unions, even though Scripture declares it nothing less than “an abomination” for man to lie with man.

Then there was the Obama administration’s argument before the Supreme Court that church employees can claim workplace discrimination when they are fired because their beliefs or conduct are contrary to tenets of their faith-based employer.

Even Obama’s appointees to the High Court, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, agreed that the administration’s position amounted to an attack upon religious freedom. That’s why they joined their fellow justices in a unanimous ruling against Obama’s imps.

Finally, there’s the provision of the Obamacare law that requires churches and faith-based employers to not only provide, but also pay for contraceptive for their workers – no matter whether they were married or single.

The controversy went supernova when the president’s Democrat allies in Congress held a hearing at which Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, who turned out to be a radical feminist activist, made the case for why religious institutions should not be exempt from the contraceptive mandate.

When Fluke was taken to task by radio host Rush Limbaugh, who wondered why a single woman like Fluke would need birth control unless she was sleeping around, Obama came to her defense.

That’s because she was doing the president’s bidding, furthering his secularist agenda to force religious institutions to be conformed to this morally fallen world, which bombards young women and men with the message that there’s nothing wrong with sexual promiscuity as long as they use “protection.”

Such are the fruits of the Obama presidency. Little wonder that two-thirds of Americans do not identify him as Christian.

I agree with THIS analysis of Obama’s beliefs:

“He’s a Marxist agnostic with a soft spot for Islam, which he sees as a victim of American imperialism. His professed Christianity is mostly a political ruse. He had to do it in order to show solidarity with “the community” in Chicago.”

I also don’t find the authentic FRUITS as listed in the Scriptures.
“22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who [k]belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also [l]walk by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.” Galatians 5: 22....

I like to ask, “How many times does the word Coexist appear in the Bible?” They try to refer to like words and I say no, just the word Coexist. They are suprised when I tell them ZERO times.

If Obama is not a Muslim, how do you reconcile that fact with this...

[Edward] Klein also said [Jeremiah] Wright told him he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having to renounce his “Islamic background,” which Klein said he has on tape.

If Obama weren't a Muslim, he would have nothing to renounce.

I think he has said he became a Christian when Jeremiah Wright told him that Jesus was a black community organizer.

My understanding is that if your father is a Muslim, you are a Muslim. Case closed.

It is a paraphrased quote from the Cathleen Falsani (Chic Trib) interview with Obama.

He is Moslem and Communist. There is no contradiction in that combination until the Moslems or the Communists or the Moslems and Communists actually assume real power. Then the stronger of the two influences will destroy the other and its adherents. It is similar to the NAZI/Communist relationship of the last century. Both were totalitarian creeds that differed from each other on effectively minor points but could not live together in the same world once they had come to points of pre-eminence.

What I stated was done so as an opinion....not a fact.
You have a slightly different opinion.

As to the possibility that he is Muslim:

1. I’d have to hear the tape...and more.
2. His overall demeanor seems much more anti-God to me.
3. Please also consider his support for the homosexual (gay) lifestyle.

NO TRUE, BIBLE BELIEVING, JESUS LOVING, GOD FEARING Christian believes he is a Christian. I know of NO Christian that I listed above would support abortion and the murder of the unborn in the womb or anything homosexual, marriage, etc. These two reasons tell me he is a liar and a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He is EVERYTHING the Scriptures warn us about. Thus, AMERICA BE WARNED!!!

Your post cuts right to the truth...well done! Zero supports abortion and gay marriage...he is NOT a follower of the one and true Jesus Christ!

Don’t have a link, heard the audio clip, in his own words and voice, about three years ago.

The Won’s actual answer to “Who was Jesus Christ?”, in more detail, was “A great teacher...”, then blah-blah-blah for a while, then, at the end, as an afterthought, “...the Son of God”.

An actual Christian would have said “Son of God” first.

Well, of course...it is just an opinion and I might be dead wrong.

As to Obama's being anti-God...he is certainly against the God of Israel and Christians. That is one of the basic tenets of Black Liberation Theology.

And as to homosexuality, consider this....

In Pakistan, sex between men is strictly forbidden by law and religion. But even in the most conservative regions, it's also embedded in the society. Source

Homosexuality has a massive role in Pashtun society and in many other islamic cultures. Probably because there is little or no access to women.

There are a lot of folks warming Christian church pews who do support abortion (pro-choice doesn't sound as bad as abortion or murder) and homosexuality/gay marriage. Unfortunately, they claim to be Christian and will tell you they are if asked ..... a lot of folks are in for a shock when they stand face-to-face with God when the time comes. I have never understood how any true Christian ... following in Christ's footsteps and obeying his Word, could ever vote for someone like Obama or any other prog/liberal for that matter.

People do not seem to understand that the opposite of life is NOT choice; it is DEATH. You support abortion; you are NOT Christian.
