President Obama on Christianity

President Obama is clearly NOT a Christian which is evidenced by his rejection tha Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven.

In a interview he was asked

Falsani: Do you believe in heaven?

OBAMA: Do I believe in the harps and clouds and wings?

Falsani: A place spiritually you go to after you die?

OBAMA: What I believe in is that if I live my life as well as I can, that I will be rewarded. I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.

So as long as you live a "good life"?

Scripture is clear that NOBODY has lived a "good life" because we have all sinned against God

(Romans 3:10-12 ESV)

as it is written:
“None is righteous, no, not one;
no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.”

(Romans 3:23-24 ESV)

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

The good news is that we are Justified through faith in Jesus Christ and trusting in his work on the cross! To trust in your own goodness and "good works" is to reject the work of Christ on the cross

(Hebrews 2:14-18 ESV)

Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery. For surely it is not angels that he helps, but he helps the offspring of Abraham. Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Scripture is clear that we are justified by faith and not our own good works!

(Romans 5:1 ESV)

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

(Romans 4:4-6 ESV)

Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due. And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness, just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:

Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV)

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

(Romans 3:27-28 ESV)

Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.

We need to pray that our Sovereign God would change our Presidents heart and that he would repent and trust in the gospel of our Lord.
