    He says his father was not religous. This means he was not Muslim like most would have you believe. His mother was "spiritual" but not affiliated.

    He also explained how he came to know the Lord through Trinity. He says he didn't know religion until then.

    Why do people keep claiming he said he was Muslim as a young boy? I still never see where he said this???

    Religion Won't Save Obama!

    We must have a relationship with Jesus to enter Heaven. Religion won't save anyone. There are a lot of religious people in this world, but we must have a personal relationship with Jesus, and that starts with confessing our sin, and asking Jesus to come into your heart.

    I have yet to hear nothing more than "religious" garble come from the mouth [and heart] of Obama and the bios written by his biased staff members. Wright may have introduced him to Religion, but, I think, from what I have heard so far, Obama has not confessed that he is a sinner. That God sent Jesus to die for his sins. Acknowledge that it is his faith in Jesus to forgive him when he asked Jesus to come into his heart that makes him a Christian/Believer. I really don't mean to judge Obama, but, I so far I haven't heard him talk about the things that take us from a sinner, lost and bound for hell, to God through Christ in him, saved, forgiven, and cleansed from the sins that once stained his life.

    Sorry....Obama's may or may not be a Muslim, but, I am confused as to his really knowing that Jesus died for his sin, and that leaves Obama still lost heading full speed down the multi-lane freeway to hell.

    Agreed... You didn't watch the clip or you would hear his confession, however, none of us know if another is truly saved... :thumbs:

    Anybody can SAY anything. His actions speak much louder than his words.

    And where is the uproar about him using a cross on his literature like when a former candidate was shown in front of what LOOKED LIKE A CROSS but was a book case?

    This true for people here as well, especially those who continue to post things about Obama that aren't true.

    I don't know about the CoC anywhere else, but the local churches do not encourage a personal relationship with Jesus. It is foreign to them. They teach baptism is salvation along with agreeing to live by their church standards. No Jesus involved.
    I have a hard time believing anyone to be a christian who believes in murdering live birth babies, which he has said wuth his own mouth.
    Being a christian is more then just saying so, it is a way of life, a way of life that does not include murder and approving of murder.
    He claims to be all religeous, but does he claim a personal relationship with Jesus, Jesus has become his Lord, he follows what the bible teaches, one thing of which would be do not murder.


    Exactly right.
    People can say anything, whatever they want, but what they do tells what they really believe. So far everything he does as a senator and plans on in the white house does not say christian, murdering live birth babies, abortion, supporting homos*xuality and legal homos*xual unions.

    I hope no one is confused but just in case, Senator Obama is a member of the United Church of Christ denomination, not the Church of Christ denomination that I grew up in and that we are familiar with in the South.

    Uh huh.

    He's a member of a church with a racist agenda.

    His pastor preaches racism and anti Americanism.

    He actively supports and advances the cause of baby killing.

    ...

    Does anyone have anything else to add to his Christian testimony?

    It is not the denomination that concerns me about his salvation it is the theology his church openly teaches...

    Liberation theology places the emphasis of salvation on social programs...
    It teaches that with the right social programs in place people will not sin...
    IOWS.. feed the poor, and the poor won't need to steal. You can see this theology in his politics...

    Liberation theology directly opposes Evangelical Theology that teaches that the Blood of Jesus Christ is the only thing that erases sin.

    Liberation theology emphasises Jesus' works while here on Earth... healing, ministering to others, etc..
    Evangelical theology emphasises Jesus' works on Calvary and resurrection.

    As Baptists we teach that the Blood of Jesus washes us clean.
    Obama has been incorrectly taught that the way to Heaven is through Baptism and social programs...

    Listen carefully, everytime he gives his Salvation testimony, he speaks about seeing the social programs at the church, and then he equates his salvation with him coming forward to be Baptized...
    That is not True Salvation...

    He is a member of a church that teaches a false way to Heaven.

    Liberation theology is a lie from Hell.

    Only Evangelical theology is the way to Heaven.
    Through Christ's blood... by Grace through faith...

    Anyone that believes otherwise will wake in Hell.

    Great Response

    You hit the target right on TinyTim. Thanks for the thumbnail definition of Liberation Theology, a teaching straight from the hand of Satan, and meant to lead the faithful [to the teaching of Liberation Theology] right to hell!

    I believe him when he says he is a Christian. I choose, unlike many on this thread, to NOT play God and determine the condition of someones soul.

    The abortion issue is such a red herring, what one believes about abortion has not one thing to do with salvation, not one.

    To bring up Rev. Wright when it comes to an individuals faith is disingenuous at best. What he has said or done has no bearing on Sen. Obama's salvation.

    The truth of the matter is that far too many will not be happy with the testimony of someone unless they believe exactly like they themselves believe. Which is truly unfortunate, there are some good Christian folk out there that don't happen to have Baptist written across their foreheads.

    Planks and specks my friends, planks and specks.

    Well, I choose not to play God and assume I know what's in his heart. When confronted with someone like Obama, I feel it is best to assume they aren't saved, and pray for God to raise up a witness to him. If I voted for everyone who claimed Christ, and looked no further into it, I'd be violating biblical advice to examine, and compare.

    I just don't believe everyone who says their saved, is. And the bible certainly does not tell us to believe everything people say. So you can get all self-pious, looking down your nose, and say we're playing God, or you can admit that scripture tells us to test stuff, and that yer just being a bit partisain.

    Do you believe Rush Limbaugh, or Ann Coulter is saved ? They both claim Christ.

    ....and that would shudder in horror at being equated with the UCC. Then again, the UCC would shudder at being confused with the CoC :)

    Trivia: Alexander Campbell is in my family tree. I don't say that to many people. Wait...I just did :)
