Christianity and Barack Obama's Inauguration

Recently we posted a link to “Seven Reasons Barack Obama is not a Christian.” The article is found on the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission’s website. The writer was alarmed by the fact that the President-elect claims to be a Christian, but he does not accept the Bible’s teaching on important issues like abortion and homosexuality. He has been deeply affected by theological liberalism, postmodernism and liberation theology.

We added the link because we share the writer's concerns. However, it is true that a great number of Christians voted for him, even though they knew where he stands on moral issues. The problem is not just with the President-elect, but with the masses in our country that don't understand or follow what the Bible teaches!

We can hope that the new president may now be influenced by strong Christians as he faces the great task ahead of him. He has asked Evangelical pastor Rick Warren to offer the invocation at his inauguration, and he plans to take the oath of office with his hand on Abraham Lincoln’s Bible. Wouldn't it be wonderful if he experienced a true conversion to Christ during his presidency like Abraham Lincoln did?

We are also instructed to pray for our governmental leaders.

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone- 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
- 1 Timothy 2:1-4 (NIV)
