Barack Obama, Jesus and the Least of These

I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life. But most importantly, I believe in the example that Jesus set by feeding the hungry and healing the sick and always prioritizing the least of these over the powerful. I didn’t ‘fall out in church’ as they say, but there was a very strong awakening in me of the importance of these issues in my life. I didn’t want to walk alone on this journey. Accepting Jesus Christ in my life has been a powerful guide for my conduct and my values and my ideals. (Barack Obama)

Obama has been my choice, of course. He’s still pretty much an underdog, but he’s definitely the candidate I can most identify with and support.

  1. He’s pro abortionist, pro homosexuals (pro homosexual churches) btw. Gotta have some reservations on this guy, his actions have yet to affirm his words!

  2. Hi Brother John,

    Good to see you here. I am very aware of Obama’s beliefs. Choosing a political candidate is not so straight forward. It’s not just about one or two issues. George W. Bush is a Christian who is against abortion but in my opinion a lot of his policies have been un-Christian and he’s been one of the worst Presidents ever. I don’t agree with everything Obama believes but overall I support him.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with supporting a non-Christian too. I don’t believe a government should be imposing Christian values on others. The Church and State should be separate.

    The abortion issue is not as simple as people think. Just banning abortion doesn’t help at all as we live in a fallen world. And regarding homosexuals, I definitely don’t support the way most Christians treat homosexuals. I am not pro-homosexual-lifestyle, but neither am I anti-homosexuals as many Christians are. We Christians should be known more for loving homosexuals, than judging and condemning them. But sadly, we’re not. Jesus would never treat homosexuals the way most Christians and Churches treat them today.

  3. Yeah I agree with everything you say. Its just that Obama just has yet to build weight to his very flamboyant words, one political scientist I met said it very aptly. Now they are candidates, all of them can continue their talk, except for the one that becomes president. Hey btw, that exchange over Chc, lets not bother ourselves with it ya, we cant do the Holy Spirit’s work at renewing minds. So bless them and lets end with Amen. (:

  4. Hey John. Yup, time will tell if Obama backs up his words with actions! I hope he gets the chance though :)

    Yes, I was in the midst of responding to the CHC thread when I felt I shouldn’t. It’ll never end. May God richly bless them! Amen!
