Defining Christianity… the President’s Way

From an article in the Baptist Press, it is revealed that the president has his own definition of what it means to be a Christian, along with his perception that there are many roads to heaven.

From Cathleen Falsani, who published a book (“The God Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People”), we are given information not used in the book but kept by the writer from and interview with the U.S. Senate candidate in 2004. Lest you had doubts or are giving the benefit of the doubt to one said, “Christian,” let it be known in the man’s own words just where he places his trust.

“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:
…”I am a Christian. So, I have a deep faith,” he said. “So, I draw from the Christian faith. On the other hand, I was born in Hawaii where obviously there are a lot of Eastern influences. I lived in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, between the ages of six and 10. My father was from Kenya, and although he was probably most accurately labeled an agnostic, his father was Muslim. And I’d say, probably, intellectually I’ve drawn as much from Judaism as any other faith.”

He added, “So, I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. 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.” BP News

Sounds like a one world religious philosophy to me. But I am not the judge… I am called to discern as is every believer. The bible says there is only ONE way to heaven and that is through the narrow gate, the door, the good shepherd, the Savior, the Son of Man, the great I am, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob… Yeshua Ha Meshiach; Jesus the Messiah.

(I recommend you read the Baptist Press full article as soon as possible before it gets scrubbed from the internet.)

Read Falsani’s original article here where Obama states he became good friends with Rev. Jeremiah Wright later in the interview.


Government Waste Goes to Waist

For the unemployed in Detroit, getting gussied up for a job interview must have included diamond stud earrings and gold chains, or did it?

A recent article by the Detroit News reports that $11 million, yes… million dollars were granted to the Department of Human Services to adorn (cloth) would be workers for job interviews. The sad part of the story is that the $11 million only clothed 2 of the unemployed for job interviews in that city. One wonders if they shopped at Wal-Mart.

To receive clothing, residents were required to have a job interview scheduled. According to the audit, the DHS was supposed to help 400 people between October 2010 and September 2011 but instead served only two.~Darren A. Nichols Detroit News.

The slip up was the outcome of a recent audit by the city’s general auditor. There are some who believe the jobless in Detroit deserve our money.

“It’s just another example that money is not as much of an issue than managing the money, whether it’s grant or general fund dollars that we have,” said Council President Pro Tem Gary Brown. “We have to find a better way to manage the resources and give Detroiters the value for the tax dollars they deserve.” ~Darren A. Nichols Detroit News.
