Christ, not man, is King (from the grave of Oliver Cromwell at Westminster)
“What is sin?” Obama’s response? “Being out of alignment with my values.”
In an interview Obama gave back in a 2004, when asked, “What is sin?” Obama’s response? “Being out of alignment with my values.” Obama goes on to say: “So, I have a deep faith. So I draw from the Christian faith. On the other hand, I was born in Hawaii where already there are a lot of Eastern influences…And I’d say, probably I’ve drawn as much from Judaism as any other faith…So I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people”
When Christ came to earth in roughly 3 AD, the Hindus and many African tribes were burning their wives in their husband’s funeral pyres, in Gaul and Britain they had a vague memory of the creator and an active flood story, but they were sacrificing people to Satan and the druids were burning victims by the carload to get their way with the deities. In Central America they were sacrificing virgins routinely. in North America the people had a much stronger memory of the Creator, so they had less human sacrifice, but they had horrendous torture cults and still served multiple other deities. In Rome the emperor was worshiped as god. Which ones of these religions would president Obama have us believe were one of the many path ways to heaven?
So who is Obama’s god, his higher power? Outside of himself? None. He can pick and choose values and religious authority as the situation demands. Put all the religions in the blender and, Voila! They’re all the same. Obama will explain to you what’s right or wrong, no need to worry yourself over the source or details. His attitude of course is nothing new, I heard the same thing from hippies sitting around the fire smoking pot, “it’s all relative man…”, and from college professors constantly undermining the authority of scripture by claiming the “obvious” plurality of religion, by which they mean that all religions are equal, except of course, atheism.
We’ve come a long way, from this;
“The fundamental idea of Puritanism…was the supreme authority of the Scriptures brought to bear upon the conscience…the Puritan, whether narrow or broad, mistaken or enlightened, seemed to himself at least to be aiming not at singularity (uniqueness) but at obedience to that higher spiritual order prevailing in the Universe, which he recognized as being the mind of God, and therefore of more authority than the mere…requirements of man.”
