Is Barack Obama a lukewarm Christian?

OK, so much ado about Obama. Was/is he a muslim? Did he attend mosque? Is his family muslim?

Well, amongst the buzz, there are accusations, denials, and exaggerations that distract so much from the issue in question.

According to some of his peers, Barack Hussein Obama was “quite religious in Islam.”

The Indonesian media has been flooded with accounts of Obama's childhood Islamic studies, some even describing him as a religious muslim. Speaking to the country's Kaltim Post newspaper, the principal at one of Obama's Indonesian schools stated that she recalled him studying the Quran in Arabic.

Even Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, confirms Barack grew up a Muslim.”

Obama’s own websites state that he has never been a practicing muslim and is a committed Christian.

Now, if Barack Hussein Obama IS a muslim, I have great concern about how a muslim president would deal with the muslim world…especially the Islamic states who sponsor and fund jihadists bent on the annihilation of Israel and the destruction of he USA. Islam is a theocratic religion and its practitioners are required to follow its tenets in their lives. If Obama is a muslim and gets elected, but doesn’t follow muslim doctrine, then he will be lost to Allah. Therefore, his motivation would be to rule as a muslim president.

Conversely, if Obama WAS a muslim and is now a “committed Christian,” why wouldn’t he admit it? Being a Christian means you throw off the old that you were… to be born again. Therefore, even if he WAS a muslim, it wouldn’t matter and he would be able to proclaim his Christian faith via his acknowledgement of the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ.

If Obama NEVER WAS a muslim, nor participated in its practices (this seems highly improbable), then he should still be able to proclaim Christ as his savior.

Barack Obama has ONLY stated that he NEVER WAS A MUSLIM and IS a COMMITTED CHRISTIAN. He has never publicly proclaimed why he is a Christian and not a muslim. And it seems that someone so adamant about it would be as specific as possible about it…..but then again we are talking about Barack Hussein Obama.

It seems that Obama could diffuse a lot of religion-related scrutiny by simply saying, “Yes, I was raised muslim and taught the Quran and Islamic doctrines. I have family and friends who are muslim. I attended a muslim school. But all of that no longer matters as I have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ and my Lord and Savior. I was born again and no longer believe or follow musllim tenets. I humbly attend a Christian church and serve God and a Christain.”

But Obama won’t do that. This religious and social idolater serves the god of opinion and practices the religion of political expediency. He knows that if he were to claim one religion or the other he would alienate one of the kool-aid drinking faction already in his pocket.

If I could give any advice to Barack Hussein Obama, it would be warning passage from the book of Revelation: “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”
