Obama's status as a Christian

David Limbaugh wrote an article in the Washington Examiner Friday that attempts to answer the question Is Obama a Christian?. You'll have to read the whole thing to find out what Limbaugh believes. But you can be sure, if you are familiar with his work, that he is, shall we say, skeptical.

In some ways, Obama exhibits a worldview that more closely resembles a secularist than it does either a Muslim or a Christian, especially in his views on social issues. Also, he seems to place a great deal of confidence in himself and in government to bring about transformational change.
That fits with what I said about his religion:
Personally, I don't really think he is a Muslim, but I surely don't think he is a Christian either. I think that his god is himself, and that he is trying his best to make our god (is) the State. I say he is not Christian because too many of the policies favored by him do not line up with what the Bible teaches.
FWIW, I don't think the guy recognizes a power higher than himself.


  1. While he may have a passing familiarity with some Bible passages, he demonstrates a much greater familiarity with the Koran. That being said, he possesses Bill Clinton's chameleon ability to be all things to all people, but at different times as the situation changes. Of course, in Clinton's case, he went so far as to change his hair color, too, but that was well-covered at the time.

    Mr. Obama appears convinced of his own superiority; I believe you are correct.

  2. Rev. Paul,

    Good to have you back.

    Best wishes,
