Obama: 'My Faith in Jesus Is Legitimate and Real' {BARF!!}
Fox ^ | August 21, 2012 | n/a

Posted on 08/25/2012 5:40:26 PM PDT by upchuck

In an interview with the Washington National Cathedral magazine, President Obama discussed how his faith influenced his politics — saying that at the end of the day 'God is in control.'

“First and foremost, my Christian faith gives me a perspective and security that I don’t think I would have otherwise: that I am loved. That, at the end of the day, God is in control," Obama said.

...

Obama also briefly addressed the ongoing (false) doubts about his faith — including rumors that he is a Muslim (which he is not).

"I have a job to do as president, and that does not involve convincing folks that my faith in Jesus is legitimate and real. I do my best to live out my faith, and to stay in the Word, and to make my life look more like His," Obama said "What I can do is just keep on following Him, and serve others—trying to make folks’ lives a little better using this humbling position that I hold."

IMHO, nobama is a muslim. And these statements by him are grand examples of Taqiyya:I think that nobama thinks that Taqiyaa covers many of the outright lies he tells.

Further, his last paragraph is blasphemy.

It must be unprecedented, how reporters routinely insert flat assertions about Obama’s birth and religion into news items. I can’t think of any other topic on which reporters don’t simply report what people think or say; but when it comes to Obama’s birthplace or religion, they invariably ASSERT that, “many people think (falsely) that...” or “Polls show that many Americans believe (mistakenly) that...”

I’ve never heard or read a quote by Obama saying he is not a Muslim. He may state that he has a Christian faith, but I’ve never heard him actually say he is not a Muslim.

> Obama: ‘My Faith in Jesus Is Legitimate and Real’

“It must be clearly understood that Islam is a religion of
intimidation and threats that allows Muslims, through the
doctrine of Taqqiya, to dissimulate, that is, to lie
about their religion or misrepresent it to others.”

Jesus told him to force churches to pay to let little babies get cut up in women's wombs.
Jesus told him to let little babies that survive abortions lay in a sink and die.
Jesus told him to forcefully take people's hard earned money and distribute it to people who refuse to work.
Jesus told him to take away tax deductions for charitable contributions.
Jesus told him to give money to Hamas-run Gaza--where rockets are fired at Jews.

Yeah, he sure is genuine.

Again, on behalf of all traditional Christians -- Orthodox, Latin, Coptic, Armenian, and Assyrian -- I object to that graphic. From Apostolic times down to the present, Christians have faced east in prayer (and it is from this custom that the meaning of "orient oneself" is derived). The custom fell into disuse among protestants, and it is manifest that Obama is not an adherent of any confession that faces east in prayer.

He is at best an adherent of the "black liberation theology" heresy of Christianity, at worst Sunni Muslim engaged in taqiyya, and most likely an atheist materialist who lies about his religious commitments because open atheist materialists don't get elected to national or even statewide office in the U.S. The intent of the graphic is to imply the middle alternative, but there are very few places on earth in which the great circle through Mecca is even approximately eastward and none in North America (which is why all the purpose-built mosques sit crooked on their lots in American cities with east-west and north-south streets). Please stop running it.

Not for me to judge if he believes; even the demons believe and the tremble. Not for me to say he loves Jesus or gave his heart to Him. Not up to me to say he'll enter heaven or be on the outside with the wailing and gnashing of teeth. Not up to me to even critique who God establishes as leaders and movers and shakers, but I do have my opinions and for some odd reason whether he believes or not is not the question, the question is whether he APPLIES the examples of jesus, His life, death and resurrection and whether he leads as a follower of jesus and APPLIES Jesus teachings into being a SERVANT of the people he is leading.

Does that make sense? Nebuchadnezzar wrote a beautiful chapter( four I think with out looking it up) in the Book of Daniel after seven years of walking around like an animal. I cannot say if Obama is a follower, all I can say is what I have seen and what he has done and what he is doing and in my humble opinion I pray for his soul first and pray he starts following the values and morals of jesus, not his proscribed ideologies of who jesus is through the lens of men but through the Ruach, the Holy Spirit and leads accordingly. he is not doing that. I must question who or what "Jesus" he believes. And I must wonder why McCain could answer:

McCain vs Obama debate at Saddleback Chrurch

There are 17 parts to this Q&A with Obama and he failed miserably so it's nmot that he believes, it's if He loves and with a loving heart leeads as a follower. This is hard. No one can do it, but ..you be the judge, I think he's failed miserably so far, but there's hope he can change when he's not president anymore

“By their fruits thou shalt know them” (and I personally do not believe him, however GOD knows the truth)

The only reason 0bama is prattling about being a Christian NOW is because the ‘Rats are preparing to smear Romney for being a Mormon and when they’re finished they’ll make Mormonism look like a latter day Jim Jones cult.

The fact is, I don’t believe in the tenets of Mormonism myself, however Romney’s faith is between him and God, but 0bama and his crew of ‘Rats will make it a campaign issue.

I agree. He is an Islamophile - probably simply because it is an anti-Western camp, but he is probably not a Moslem. His attitudes on sexuality and abortion however are repugnant to traditional Islam. He could do a better job faking a social gospel ‘Christianity’ if his intent was simply to deceive for personal advantage.

With faith there are works. Reflecting commitment.

His actions reflect that he serves the father-of-lies. His words also.

Let me elaborate:

Issa is the bogus Jesus in the Koran. According to the Koran, Issa was never crucified, but was “spirited away”. While the Koran describes the virgin birth, Issa was not the Son of God. Issa is supposed to return with the Mahdi (12th Imam, according to the Shia), and tell everyone that he did not die on the cross, and that Mohammed was right. Issa would then join the Mahdi on waging jihad against the Christians and Jews and all non-Muslims.
Just another of Satan’s lies.

So we’re not talking about Darryl Issa.

what will the 2.6 million Muslims residing in the US do?

Support Obama or NOT.

According to Muslim beliefs they “DO NOT SUPPORT HOMOSEXUALITY PERIOD!” And what about slippery Louie F. and his nation if Islam. Blacks for Obama?

He could accomplish more if he faked being mainstream, or at least moreso. Islam certainly colors his worldview, but I read him as a an effete wannabe Leninist, what used to be called champagne socialists.

Whatever he is, it is malignant and he was indoctrinated into it long, long ago.

Not if you’re talking about the practices of infidels.

I have NEVER heard or read anywhere, nor have I ever heard 0bama that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God and his personal Lord and Savior. I have never heard or heard tell of 0bama professing that Jesus Christ is the Savior of Mankind, Ever.

Until 0bama actually says these things, he is no Christian. Because of what I know of Islam, I believe him a muslim.

Parse the words he uses in this interview and compare it to the TV interview with Stephanopolus— no way they match up:

“Faith in Jesus is real”— what does that MEAN? Faith about WHAT in Jesus (his redemption of our sins, that he was and is the Son of God, that he was resurrected?)

“I do my best to live out my faith, and to stay in the Word, and to make my life look more like His,”— What faith is he “living out” and what Word is he staying in— the Koran? (like when he attended Rev. Wright’s anti-christian church of muslims passing for christian), and whose life is the “His” he is talking about— is that Mohammed’s? Or Allah?

“What I can do is just keep on following Him, and serve others—trying to make folks’ lives a little better using this humbling position that I hold.”— this notion of
“serving others” apparently does not extend to all people as Christianity demands. And if you think this narcissistic clown is “humble”-— well that is a laugh. Saint Obama— let’s put him up for it (patron saint of re-distribution and Statism). Marxist scholars will tell you the Lenin felt strongly that Bolsheviks needed to maintain the “illusion” of religion to keep the masses placated, and to initially tolerate religion, but later eradicate it. That is what this interview is about, and it flies in the face of the reality of what he does every day to destroy our country.

What kind of “bitter clinger” ,to use his words is he? Because those same “folks” he says he wants to “help” are the same ones he calls “bitter clingers clinging to their Bibles and their guns”. Those people are called Real Americans, and they did not spend their developing years with neo-Marxists and domestic terrorists. This is pure utter BS.
