In a recent article about Obama’s faith, Newsweek reports that Obama reiterated his position that he is a “Christian” who rejects the idea that Jesus is the only way of salvation. Obama throws Christ under his campaign bus as he denies Christ is the only Savior of the World.
“It is a precept of my Christian faith that my redemption comes through Christ, but I am also a big believer in the Golden Rule, which I think is an essential pillar not only of my faith but of my values and my ideals and my experience here on Earth,” Newsweeks reports that Obama said. “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell. My particular set of beliefs may not be perfectly consistent with the beliefs of other Christians.”
Obama rightly understands his faith is questionable and not Christian. That’s why he says his faith raises questions. But his faith is not only inconsistent with other Christians, it is inconsistent with Jesus Christ and the Apostles. Why would you say you are a Christian then denounce the teachings of Christ and the founders of the Christian Church? While it is very troubling to consider that anyone, especially a family member, might be in Hell, what really matters is what God has revealed, not what Obama wants to be true.
Below are a few examples from the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles that prove salvation comes through Jesus Christ alone.
One of the most stunning of the wonders in the insect world is on the Emperor Speckled Moth (Gynanisa maja) from southern Africa, a member of the silkmoth group. To scare predators away, its wings display this strikingly accurate rendition of a mammal’s face—even the sparkle in the pupils!
Many other day-flying silk moths have eye spots decorating their wings, but only the Emperor Speckled Moth has such an elaborate design.
Secular scientists do not even try to explain the details of how such a masterful living painting could have occurred, but they believe….
By constantly meditating on the goodness of God and on our great deliverance from that punishment which our sins have deserved, we are brought to feel our vileness and utter unworthiness; and while we continue in this spirit of self-degradation, everything else will go on easily. We shall find ourselves advancing in our course; we shall feel the presence of God; we shall experience His love; we shall live in the enjoyment of His favour and in the hope of His glory. . . . You often feel that your prayers scarcely reach the ceiling; but, oh, get into this humble spirit by considering how good the Lord is, and how evil you all are, and then prayer will mount on wings of faith to heaven. The sigh, the groan of a broken heart, will soon go through the ceiling up to heaven, aye, into the very bosom of God.
