Skip to comments.Obama: Sin is what doesn't match 'my values'
Posted on 03/03/2012 7:28:31 AM PST by Gritty
The one-hour interview by Cathleen Falsani was conducted when Obama was running for U.S. Senate (2004)...
Among Obama's most intriguing answers, he says he believes there are many paths to God. His answers on heaven and sin, though, have drawn the most discussion:
FALSANI: "Do you believe in heaven?"
OBAMA: "Do I believe in the harps and clouds and wings?"
FALSANI: "A place spiritually you go to after you die?"
OBAMA: "What I believe in is that if I live my life as well as I can, that I will be rewarded. I don't presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing. When I tuck in my daughters at night and I feel like I've been a good father to them, and I see in them that I am transferring values that I got from my mother and that they're kind people and that they're honest people, and they're curious people, that's a little piece of heaven."
FALSANI: "Do you believe in sin?"
FALSANI: "What is sin?"
OBAMA: "Being out of alignment with my values."
FALSANI: "What happens if you have sin in your life?"
OBAMA: "I think it's the same thing as the question about heaven. In the same way that if I'm true to myself and my faith that that is its own reward; when I'm not true to it, it's its own punishment."
Obama said he is a Christian but that he also draws beliefs from other religions.

OBAMA: “Being out of alignment with my values.”
(WOW that sure tells it all...no external point of reference...self centered...think their god)
I think he thinks Jesus meant the government (obama the great) should take care of his brothers and we should give him $4 trillion borrowed and printed dollars a year to pay for it
At the current time, we don’t even truly know who this man is.
He has not provided one original document to verify his:
We think his mother was Dunham, but we basically accepted that based on a fable at this point.
I don’t know who this guy is for sure, but I sure do know that he is a person who is a chain lair.
Him stating that it is against his nature to sin, is like saying it’s against a dunks nature to drink. It’s like saying fish are allergic to water. It’s like saying he would never humble himself on behalf of the United States to a foreign leader.
To this point, this man’s whole life is based on a lie.
He sounds like my mother. She was a good person and part of me hopes she will be saved but it never sunk in what being a Christian was all about. It’s not about “being a good person”. It is about acknowledging the sin in your life and accepting God’s free gift through the death of Jesus Christ.
“No one comes to the Father but by Me,” Jesus said. So either Jesus was a liar and not the Son of God or he was telling the truth and the only way to salvation is by accepting Christ as your savior, not by being a “good person” or “living true to my values”.
Good heavens, you couldn’t even make this stuff up...
It’s a name that at the core is based on false or falsehood.
What’s the next interviewer going to be, Jane Damned Liar?
She may not be able to say he’s not a Christian, but I certainly can. Those answers are not the answers of a Christian.
He got most of his religious beliefs from Judaism?
This guy is a pathological liar.
He is cunning. He may not be able to fool all the people, but he has been laying in wait to fool many people.
He is evil.
OBAMA: "Being out of alignment with my values."
The bastard thinks he's a god.
But we can rest assured God knows precisely who he is and what he really believes. Oblabber is not fooling Him, and He gets to make the final vote!
Well, then there is a small light at the end of the tunnel after all. :^)
Bammy Boy in shuck n jive mode...just making it up as he goes along. He just admitted he draws from Islam for his potpourri religion
Anyone else notice that when Obama has said Koran, that he pronounces it with an Arabic inflection in the voice?
Yes, if you combine that with his actual words, “my muslim faith” during the campaign interview with George S., which George had to correct for him, “you mean your Christian faith.” That statement revealed to me unquestionably he is a muslim. Not one Christian on earth would ever say “my muslim faith” accidently. I just don’t think it’s possible to do it.

Values transferred by his mother? And, what would those values be? Fellow travelers R Us? Her love for Muslim men? Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmm.
