Open Mouth, Insert Foot
This is one of those examples where a politician apologizes for something that he said, by saying something even worse than he said in the first place. Rick Santorum called Barack Obama’s world-view a “phony theology”. But then he back-peddled.
“I accept the fact that the President is a Christian,” said Rick Santorum.
Notice that Santorum seems to imply that you can be a Christian without having Christian worldview.
Now I’m not one to believe that Obama is a Muslim. I have disproved this before on this blog. I don’t even think the Muslims deserve such an insult. But Obama is certainly not a Christian. Anyone who says that Obama is a Christian is either lying, does not know what it means to be a Christian, or does not know anything about what kind of life Barack Obama has leading. Obama is a murderer because he supports killing children both in womb and in the
Middle East. Obama is a thief because he steals money from the taxpayer to support socialist programs, and to pay off his cronies and the corporations who donated to his campaign. The Bible clearly teaches that all murderers, thieves and liars will have their part in the lake of fire.
But its not surprising that Santorum would confuse Obama for a Christian. Santorum has done all of the same things, without showing any sign of remorse and yet claims to be a Christian himself. The fact that Santorum may have done these things to a lesser degree than Obama doesn't matter. He just doesn’t get it. Full repentance is necessary for salvation.
The Bible says,
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matt 7:21-23 (KJV)
Notice that this passage says, “…he that doeth the will of my Father…” is the one who will “enter into the kingdom of heaven”. Any Christian should know this and anyone who knows anything about Obama should know that he does not do the will of the Father. You can know who is a Christian and who isn’t.
