WashingtonPost.com blogger Chris Cillizza says that "nearly half of the Pew sample (48 percent) last March correctly identified (President Barack) Obama as a Christian." But is that a correct identification?
Does Obama "rescue those being led away to death" as commanded in Proverbs 24:11-12? No. Barack Obama is the most radical pro-abortion President this nation has ever seen, going so far as to vote against legislation before the Illinois state legislature that would make it illegal to kill a baby that survives an abortion and is born. In other words, Obama voted against making infanticide illegal.
How do we know if someone is a Christian? The Bible says that by their fruits we shall know them. (Matthew 7:20) I see little fruit that would indicate that Obama is a Christian. I certainly cannot see how someone who truly believes Jesus' message of love and mercy could support abortion, which has taken 50 million lives since 1973.
Obama claims to be a Christian. I could claim to be an NBA player, but that does not make it true. Similarly, many who claim the name of Jesus Christ are not Christians. Obama would be wise to read Matthew 7:22-23 and pray over it.
A reasonable level of civility is expected. While it is expected that controversial political and social issues may generate heated debate, there are common-sense limits of civility that will be enforced.
