Here is a clear article written by evangelical Christian journalist, Cal Thomas. Friends, we must be unequivocal with the biblical terms for our faith. This issue is one believers should take an interest in. (I hope to post on the same question of John McCain in the near future).
Cal Thomas includes several quotes from Obama, then comes to this inescapable conclusion:
Any first-year seminary student could deconstruct such “works salvation” and wishful thinking. Obama either hasn’t read the Bible, or if he has, doesn’t believe it if he embraces such thin theological wisps.
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 God and Man and be a Christian. Such people do have a label applied to them in Scripture. They are called “false prophets.”
