Under pressure from a group of prominent black religious leaders and many others, Franklin Graham apologized for questioning President Barack Obama’s Christian faith. In an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program on February 21, Graham had made the very mild statement that he could not answer as to whether Obama was a Christian. After being excoriated from many directions, Graham apologized a week later for “any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president.” This is a sad statement, but it is not surprising in light of the more than half-century of compromise and spiritual cowardice represented by the Grahams. The fact is that every Bible believer should question Obama’s Christian faith. We are instructed to beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing (Matthew 7:15). We are taught by Christ that many who say “Lord, Lord” will be false Christians (Matthew 7:21-23). We are warned about those who profess Christ but deny Him in works (Titus 1:16) and those who have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof (2 Timothy 3:5). We are exhorted to mark those that profess Christ but teach contrary to God’s Word (Romans 16:17). All of these warnings fit Barack Obama. He boldly supports the murder of unborn children who are made in God’s image and formed by God in the womb (Psalm 139:15-16). He promotes the “rights” of homosexuals who practice that which God’s Word calls a moral abomination. In a 2004 interview with Cathleen Falsani published in part in the book The God Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People and in full on the Sojourner’s web site, Obama defined Heaven as something that might exist in the present rather than the future. He defines sin humanisticly as “being out of alignment with my values” rather than the biblical definition of being out of alignment with God’s values or breaking God’s law. He says that he draws beliefs from all religions and that there are “many paths to the same place.” By his own testimony, Obama has a false christ and a false gospel.
