There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.
He even said he will bypass congress. Not that his word means anything.
I am referring to the big list of future plans he has. Many involve environmental regulations.
Look them up if you want to know..i would look at Bing...not google Google is in obama's back pocket.
What Executive Orders do you have a problem with Ithink? Most of his 169 current Executive Orders seem harmless enough.
"One’s actions reveal one’s faith."
With that I ultimately agree. My critique was mostly aimed at the guy who tried to connect Obama telling lies to Islamic teaching, even though his lies do not seem to have any religious preference.
I even point out in my letter that his criticism of Obamacare is good because there are actually facts to back up that position.
But in the end, Obama is Christian. Is he a good Christian? That's up to everyone else to figure out for themselves. Then they can try and tell us who is a good scotsman.
I really don't worry about obama's faith or lack of it. I worry about his actions and their devastating effect on our country. Three more years of his insane ex. orders will be the most damaging period in the history of our country
New lies are uncovered regulary and show he was elected through deceit. Now he is carrying out his promise to transform our country. Uugh!!
He has shown more affection for wicked muslim leaders than for our traditional allies. History was ignored by all who voted for him. All they cared about was free goodies paid for by us.
One’s actions reveal one’s faith. One can declare faith over and over, but if his or her actions and words don’t reflect that faith, we’re free to conclude that person lacks sufficient faith.
However, I refuse to conclude that someone has no faith. We all sometimes fail to match our deeds and words to our faith. That includes me. I’m certainly not without sin, so I shouldn’t cast stones.
In the end, God will decide who has enough faith to enter God’s Kingdom.
Tired, if you don't think a person saying they are a peticular faith isn't enough...then you are welcome to that position. As you have said, we have hit a wall on this topic.
Your stance is reasonable, Tiredofit.
“I don't think Obama is a person of any faith whatsoever, as most politicians.”
There’s truth in that statement. I would qualify it in a couple of ways.
1. I don’t think politicians differ much from the general population.
2. I wouldn’t say they have no faith; I would say they have not enough faith. Those who have faith in Jesus will not become angry when they Bible is quoted. They will adjust their attitudes and behavior to conform to that word because they believe God knows more than they do.
"To be a follower of Jesus Christ would seem to inhibit someone from lying don't you agree"
Who says that he isn't inhibited from lying? Perhaps if he wasn't a Christian he would lie so much more.
And no, he did not talk about his Muslim faith. He said the words "my muslim faith" which was a slip of the tongue when one would read the entire trascript. Now if he talked about his Muslim faith, I am sure certain issues like the five pillars, Mecca and Mohammed might have came up but they didn't.
I don't know where any of his impulses to lie originate from. But there is no evidence that any of his lying came from a belief in the Koran.
"You should not have made such a declarative statement in your LTE"
I have no problem with making a declaritive statement about a person's faith when they have made their own declaritive statement about it.
That I am a hypocrite. I have statements of Obama declaring his christian faith. He chose to go to christian chruches.
The guy from Belpre tried to go from Obama attending a school with Muslims and make a insane leap from that to Obama lying and saying he got the idea from the Koran.
"you are being hypocritical by criticizing him for making a statement that he had no proof of when you have no proof either."
You are free to make up whatever you want to. But when a person says they are Christian, then a rational person should accept that.
Sorry for the double posts. The mouse is having issues today.
@Harry..I agree fully to your statement.
How do I discern what religion a person belongs? If a person says they are christian, I tend to believe them until there is enough evidence to show otherwise.
Obama has said, "I am a Christian. So, I have a deep faith. So I draw from the Christian faith."
I have no problem with the government redistributing some of my wealth to the needy.
However, I do have a problem with the government taking my money and redistributing to those who aren't needy, and even to wealthy corporations.
I don't think government takes care of the needy very efficiently. We should do it ourselves instead of leaving it to the government.
Well, to be fair..my comment was responding to the guy from Belpre who implied Obama leans on Islamic beliefs.
But, Obama does refer to his Christian faith before. In the end, there is so muc more evidence that Obama is more christian than muslim. There is no way around that.
