Obama's Faith: Many paths to God, salvation by works

H/T: Transfigurations

Cal Thomas wrote an "interesting" article for the Jewish World Review.

Lies and damned lies:

Some insight into Obama's "Christianity" comes from an interview he gave in 2004 to Chicago Sun-Times religion editor Cathleen Falsani for her book, "The G0d Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People."

"I'm rooted in the Christian tradition," said Obama. He then adds something most Christians will see as universalism: "I believe 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."

BHO could be a fraternal twin of KJS as far as their theology goes. It's really becoming difficult to discern between one heretic and another without a theological score card.

Then, Thomas hits him where it hurst:

This is cynical manipulation of the devout

~~~

Falsani adds, "Obama doesn't believe he, or anyone else, will go to hell. But he's not sure he'll be going to heaven, either."

~~~

Obama can call himself anything he likes, but there is a clear requirement for one to qualify as a Christian and Obama doesn't meet that requirement. One cannot deny central tenets of the Christian faith, including the deity and uniqueness of Christ as the sole mediator between G0d and Man and be a Christian. Such people do have a label applied to them in Scripture. They are called "false prophets."


I have only one real problem with this last quote. I wish *I* had written it first. ;>)
