I have often wondered, and have questioned my emergent and other friends who claim to follow Christ, how they can vote for Obama, who is radically opposed to life in that he is for embryonic stem cell research (where you kill a baby to harvest stem cells), and is for third tri-mester abortions ( the murder of a viable fetus for any reason, including birth control!)
"While answering a question about his Christian faith, Obama said he believes that Jesus Christ died for his sins and through God’s grace and mercy he could have “everlasting life,” according to the Los Angeles Times.
But he also believes Jews and Muslims and non-believers who live moral lives are as much “children of God” as he is, according to The Associated Press.
As an example, he spoke about his late mother who was “not a believer.”
"[S]he was the kindest, most decent, generous person that I have ever known," Obama said, according to the Times. "I'm sure she is in heaven, even though she may not have subscribed to everything that I subscribe to."
Folks, being kind and decent does not get you into heaven. Being generous does not get you into heaven. These are fruits that Christians should exibit, but we do not enter heaven through our own goodness. Rather, God says that we enter into heaven only through a foreign righteousness that he gives us through faith in Christ alone. You cannot get that righteousness from God unless you believe what He said and who He sent.
