Obama's claim of being a Christian lacks credibility

Any investigating member of the three major network news groups can check out the facts, including quotes and actions taken by Barrack Hussein Obama during the last several years. Yet most of the major news groups in this country continue to bury their heads in the sand to avoid facing obvious truths.

Nevertheless (according to a survey from 2015), 18% of Americans believe that Obama is a follower of Islam rather than Christ. While 34% of those surveyed believe this President is a Christian (down from 48%), slightly less than 50% are unsure of what he believes in. Over the last few years President Obama has said some things that should make the ordinary citizen suspicious of his claim to be a Christian.
  • Referring Jesus to "a son of God" rather than "the son of God."

  • He has also said, "I believe that there are many paths to the same place"

  • Another quote: "I find it hard to believe that my god would consign 4/5ths

  • of the world to hell"

  • Another quote from our President: "the sweetest sound I know is the Muslim 'call to prayer'"

  • "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet Islam"
Anyone who understands anything about the Bible and the words of Christ know that Jesus said that "I am the way, the truth and the life and no man comes to the Father, but through me." Christ also said that "the way is broad that leads to destruction and there are many who enter through it" and "narrow is the gate and narrow is the way which leads unto life and few there be that find it." Certainly these quotes from Christ himself are in sharp contradiction to Obama's quoted beliefs.

In September of 2008 Obama told ABC spokesman, George Stephanopoulos: "you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." Right in the middle of that statement by the '08 Presidential candidate, Mr. Stephanopoulos found it imperative to correct Obama by saying "your Christian faith" knowing the huge repercussions of the candidate's statement and how it could affect this fellow Democrat's Presidential aspirations prior to the 2008 general election.

What most people don't know is the teachings of the Islamic doctrine of Taqiyya. This Islamic religious doctrine allows followers to deny they are Muslim if they think it would endanger them. We also shouldn't be surprised that Obama's 'Christian' Chicago church has given many awards over the years to radical Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Why?

Over the course of the last few years Obama and his administration have been bragging about 'fundamentally changing America.' Certainly the U.S. military has felt this 'change' with massive reductions in staff and equipment. Sadly, under Mr. Obama's leadership, some of the unheard changes in our military have also included:

-Removal of the words "so help me God" from the Air Force academy oath sworn by new recruits.

-Prohibiting commanders from informing their units about Christian programs & services offered by base chaplains.

-Banning Bibles at the Walter Reed Military Medical Center (later reversed by intense objection from service personnel).

-Chaplains prohibited from sharing their faith with other service members.

If all this sounds like a person who has faith in Christ, it is most astonishing to me. Just by objectively looking at the 9 points of evidence I presented, it is absolutely clear to me that Obama is not a Christian despite the pretense of long time Democrat and ABC TV host George Stephanopoulos.
