OBAMA REJECTS BIBLICAL DOCTRINE OF HELL (Friday
Church News Notes,
November 21, 2008, www.wayoflife.org
- In a 2004 interview with Cathleen Falsani of the Chicago Sun Times,
Barack Obama candidly expressed his religious views. He said that he
doesn’t read the Bible or pray regularly. He is suspicious of dogma
and certainty and thinks that “religion at its best comes with a big
dose of doubt” (“Obama’s Fascinating Interview with Cathleen Falsani,”
BeliefNet, Nov. 11, 2008). He believes that Jesus is a wonderful
teacher, that sin is “being out of alignment with my values,” and that
heaven might be “now or in the hereafter.” He doesn’t “presume to have
knowledge of what happens after I die.” Though he claims to reject
religious dogmatism, he dogmatically rejects the doctrine of hell. He
rejects “the belief that people that haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as
their personal savior are going to hell.” He says, “I find it hard to
believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I
can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India
who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all
eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.” Obama exalts
the Hindu religious leader Gandhi as “a great example of a profoundly
spiritual man” and says that FoxNews and talk radio are “dangerous
sometimes.” Barack Obama is America’s first New Age president. This is
why he got Oprah Winfrey’s support and why she was on a New Age high
during his acceptance speech. He will doubtless further empower every
anti-Christian movement, including homosexuality, environmentalism,
feminism, abortionism, globalism, socialism, and Islam. His brand of
“tolerance” embraces practically everyone but the Bible believer, and
his dislike of dogmatism doesn’t extend to the dogmatism of rejecting
the Bible’s teaching. (For documentation of the New Age infiltration
of politics, see the book The New Age Tower of Babel, which is
available from Way of Life Literature.)

I’ve known Reverend Wright for almost twenty years. The person I saw

I believe that they do not portray accurately the perspective of the black church. They
certainly don’t portray accurately my values and beliefs and if Reverend Wright thinks that's
political posturing, as he put it, then he doesn't know me very well and based on his remarks
yesterday, well I may not know him as well as I thought either.

I opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. It should be repealed and I
