Who are you - who - WHO?

Since the recent Pew poll (and various other reasons), the media has been trying to correct a misconception that Obama is in fact a Christian.  The White House was forced to release a statement stating that the president is in fact a "mainstream Christian".

Yesterday my friend, Tim Rolfe posted Obama stating he was indeed a Christian in a recent televised interview on MSNBC.

Lest we forget the goofed interview on CNN a while back in which Obama  did that ' my my Christian faith' Freudian Slip-up with George Snuffleupagus. Here's the obvious question for most 'mainstream' Christians out there.  When was the last time you accidentally called yourself a Muslim?  It was considerate for George to jump in and help correct Obama when he did.

I also started what I call an image/discussion thread today after my an old friend posted this as his status "I find it strangely ironic that much of the Christian right is hailing Glen Beck as a hero of the faith after the DC rally and he is Mormon but continue to spread the lie that the President is Muslim."  

The ongoing question has been stirring me today, just who is Obama. 

I think people have a legitimate reason to wonder if the president is a Muslim.  It hasn't really been proven to me that he isn't a Muslim.  He definately has a very pro-Muslim agenda, especially when it comes to Israel.  

It seems much of the media did what it does best, and that's bastardize the news, rather than simply report it.  They tried to do a hatchet job with Franklin Graham's remarks concerning the Obama's faith question.  Here is what he had to say about it...

"Asked by King (John King,CNN afte.r the Pew poll) if he, too, has doubts about the president's faith, Graham said that Obama’s “problem is he was born a Muslim.”

“The seed is passed through the father,” Graham said. “He was born a Muslim. His father was a Muslim; the seed of Muslim is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother. He was born a Muslim; his father gave him an Islamic name.”

Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham, acknowledged that Obama has said he is a Christian.

"He has renounced Islam, and he has accepted Jesus," Graham said. “That's what he has said he has done. I cannot say that he hasn't, so I just have to believe the president is what he has said.”

“But the confusion is because his father is a Muslim; he was born a Muslim. The Islamic world sees the president as one of theirs. That's why Qadhafi calls him his son. They see him as a Muslim,” he added. “But, of course, the president says he is a Christian, and we just have to accept it as that.”
-Franklin Graham 

The following my comment on Rolfe's thread...

"Notice how Obama says that he's a Christian, but quotes from the Koran more than he references the Word of God. Notice also how he continually sides with Islam over Israel. Look at the fruit.

IF Obama IS a Christian - he a very twisted faith. Check out the term 'collective salvation'.

"Because our individual salvation depends on collective salvation"
- II Obama 3:16

Jeremiah Wright taught Black Liberation Theology. Black theology calls for political liberation rather than spiritual liberation. Black theology turns religion into sociology.

If what is prescribed for mankind is political liberation - I can understand why Obama tried to enter our lives in messianic fashion. -df

I reposted it at my site along with the following:

The following quotes are from from a Chicago Sun-Times interview published April 5, 2004:

"I believe that 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."... -Barack Obama

"It's perhaps an unlikely theological position for someone who places his faith squarely at the feet of Jesus to take, saying essentially that all people of faith - Christians, Jews, Muslims, animists, everyone -- know the same God." -Barack Obama

-Jesus Christ, The Son of the Living God
In the above Obama quotes, though he professes Christianity,he takes a radically dangerous stance against the very words of Jesus.

If he is a Christian. He is either spiritually immature, seriously ignorant regarding scripture, or he is lying about who he is.

Here's something else Jesus said.

"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."
-Jesus Christ, The Judge of ALL

While driving across town today to pick up the girls from school, I had this thought.   If indeed that "many paths lead to the same place" and  that essentially "all faiths lead to the same God".  Perhaps he feels he can claim the right to call himself a Christian, or  a Muslim, or a Hindu, (whatever) because it's the same God.  No matter, it's not Christian doctrine.  What Obama believes as a Christian is in direct opposition to the words of Jesus.  Only Jesus is the way.

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death." "Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it" -Matthew 7:13-14
