I Love Barack Obama!

I am not being sarcastic either. We do differ on a lot of topics, BUT overall I think he has some excellent strengths that he will bring to our country. I am excited to see what the next four years are going to look like.

However, I recently have been doing some research on Obama’s beliefs. It was not because I think he is a muslim. He is NOT! Anybody who thinks that Obama is a Muslim is ignorant.

Unfortunately I am disturbed that he calls himself a Christian. In a respect he is. He attends church every Sunday, he reads his bible, he prays often. However he holds some core beliefs that are disturbing.

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. That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there’s an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived. – Barack Obama

That sounds awesome right? Values transcending over race and culture. I want that to happen as well. However, he says he believes “that there are many paths to the same place.” Basically he is saying that there are several different ways to get to God. Each person in his own way finds a way that connects him/herself to a higher being. Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth.
John 14:6 -Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
There is only one path to the higher power. That is through Jesus Christ. John 14:6 and passages all throughout scripture point to this single absolute truth.

So once again – I am excited about the next four years and this historical election. I just pray that when President Obama reads scripture these versus will pop out and disturb him. Hopefully he will reflect on what he really believes.
