Obama: ‘Resurrection of Our Savior, Jesus Christ, Puts Everything Else in Perspective’
csnews.com ^ | 4-19-11 | Fred Lucas

Posted on 04/19/2011 11:00:58 AM PDT by Justaham

President Barack Obama told an “Easter Prayer Breakfast” held at the White House on Tuesday morning that the resurrection of Our Savior Jesus Christ puts everything in perspective.

“I wanted to host this breakfast for a simple reason--because as busy as we are, as many tasks as pile up, during this season, we are reminded that there’s something about the resurrection--something about the resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ, that puts everything else in perspective,” Obama told a group of Christian clergymen and government officials in a brief speech in the East Room.

“And that’s why we have this breakfast,” Obama said. “Because in the middle of critical national debates, in the middle of our busy lives, we must always make sure that we are keeping things in perspective. Children help do that. A strong spouse helps do that. But nothing beats scripture and the reminder of the eternal.”

Hmmm... A Muslim taking about Christ and Resurrection. He'll say anything to get re-elected.

Did he read from a script? Or is it spontaneous?

Somehow I couldn’t imagine Obama saying those words as if in a normal conversation.

At first glance I can’t see anything here to criticize. Pretty basic Christian message.

Funny, it was just 2006 when he denounced the Bible in a public speech slamming both the Mosaic Code along with the Sermon on the Mount. Now...nothing beats Scripture.

Just imagining what the press would print, what the talking heads would rave about, if Bush said this at the start of a campaign season. Why doesn’t the press despise Obama’s faith and worry that he’s in Lybia because ‘God told him to be there’?

President Barack Obama told an “Easter Prayer Breakfast” held at the White House . . .

It always amazes me how Prayer is allowed in the White House (which is totally federal funded) while prayer is prohibited in public schools because they accept federal funds. It is all such bull crap — it is pathetic!!

When you see Obama praying, you know it's campaign season. Not sure how many electoral votes Molech pulls now, though.

mohammad, the first islamic terrorist, could also quote scripture.

Not surprising another muzzie in the white hut could, too.

And how many times have you heard him speak like that in the last three years? How many times has he been to church in the last three years?

Yes, it is pretty basic for someone who has Jesus in their lives, 24/7, but quite for someone who would rather golf than take his family to church.

Just saying!

One thing you’ll never hear from a liberal “Christian” is any scripture about the exclusivity of salvation through Jesus Christ.

And if you don’t believe and confess that exclusivity,
you’re denying what He did was necessary for salvation.

I disagree. Liberal “Christians” will say anything to get reelected. He is just parroting the lines he needs to say to make some Christians believe that he is a Christian. I have seen preachers who are no more saved than a goose preach fire and brimstone and salvation with the best of them. But their lives and actions show they do not mean it.

Obama's life and actions show that he does not mean it.

At first glance I can’t see anything here to criticize. Pretty basic Christian message.

Take a second glance:

"...during this season, we are reminded that there’s something about the resurrection--something about the resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ, that puts everything else in perspective,” Obama told a group of Christian clergymen and government officials..."

Do you know "what season" it is? Do you know who "we" are? Do you know what "we" are being "reminded" of? Do you know what "something" there is "about" the ressurection?

You do? Good. Now here's the final question:

Do you think Obama has the same answers as you?

He wants you to presume he does.

But he did not say so.

Muslims have no problem speaking about Christ, they don’t believe he is the son of God, or a Savior, they believe he was a prophet whose lessons were fragmented and Mohammad had to come to finish the message.

That makes them think they are knowledgeable and Christians have no clue, infidels, etc...And when we tell them they are wrong and there is only one savior and no other path to Heaven it becomes blasphemy..

But every lib DOES have the core value that Christianity is not THE ONLY WAY to salvation.

He’d lose more of his base than he’d gain of discerning Christians by stating the confession of exclusivity.

Your description is very like the philosophy of liberalism.
The main reason anyone proclaims liberalism is to feel superior to others.

I once believed that. Back in the election when it was revealed what his pastor, Rev Wright, was preaching, I thought that would be the end of his campaign. No Christian would vote for somebody who was under that kind of preaching for 20 years. But I was terribly wrong. Not only did self-proclaimed Christians vote for him, they did it in unprecedented numbers. Even some members of my church voted for him, coming up with the strangest rationals for doing so. Some people want to be fooled, period.

Just believing in what Christ said...
I am not bothered by folks who decide to believe in other paths,their choice, I look at it as they are not called to life in heaven and have the right to do so, I just wish that they could understand that Christ told us the truth, to Jews, to Islamist to anyone who would seek Him, there is no other path to God.
All other paths were severed by God with Christ on the cross.
If there is any feeling of superiority in that it is simply God proclaiming His superiority to our decisions, follow Him, you will come to Jesus feet...and be free.
Not like liberals, no need to lie to achieve the goal...no manipulation of superiority, just the truth...

I like the statement, also, that says

“all paths lead to God, but all others but Jesus lead you to Him as Judge and not as Savior”

“There SOMETHING about it”.

Very vague.

Kind of like Nancy Pelosi’s (paraphrased) line “When I find myself needing a guide, there’s The Word. And the Word is Good.” (or something like that).

It’s just Democrat BS to go after the Christian voters. They spelled out their playbook after 2004. They called it the “God Gap” and said that they would go after those voters.

When they outted the 2 gay Republicans in 2006, it was to turn off Christian voters to those Republicans and the party in general (which is why they erroneously claimed that the scandal went to the top of the GOP who knew and did nothing while a subsequent Congressional investigation showed that the media AND the DNC knew more, earlier, and CHOSE to sit on it as an October Surprise).

Where is Obama’s baptism certificate? He’s no Christian. Still hasn’t found a church in DC.
