Obama's View of Scripture

Barack Hussein Obama has revealed his view of Scripture at a rally at Hocking College. He stated that he believes the Sermon on the Mount justifies his view of same-sex unions. Obama said, "I don't think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state...If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans."

When did Romans become obscure? Maybe because he hasn't read it? Romans is THE book that clearly lays out what it means to be a Christian. In it we find the doctrine of justification by faith. Without being justified by faith you are NO Christian. The passage Obama is referring to is probably the passage in chapter one where God says that such behavior is not normal, it isn't natural. I hardly find it an obscure passage.

I think most evangelicals will totally reject his explanation. What Obama has done is show the evangelical community what his view of Scripture truly is...pick and choose. He basically chooses what passages of Scripture he likes and rejects the rest. This is the same method that the cults use. It is a satanic approach to Scripture. The words he chooses to reject are the VERY WORDS OF GOD! May we guard against picking out the verses and chapters and books that suit our fancy. To have such an approach to Scriptures leaves one in a position where he will likely reject the parts of Scripture that warn of his own condemnation!
