______________________ LIFE, FAITH, ETCETERA

Yeah, He Said That. September 29, 2010

“I’m a Christian by choice.”
“My family didn’t – frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week.
And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn’t raise me in the church.

“So I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead – being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me.”

“And I think also understanding that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility we all have to have as human beings, that we’re sinful and we’re flawed and we make mistakes, and that we achieve salvation through the grace of God.”
“But what we can do, as flawed as we are, is still see God in other people and do our best to help them find their own grace.”

“That’s what I strive to do. That’s what I pray to do every day.” “I think my public service is part of that effort to express my Christian faith.”

— Barack Obama

[Yeah, he said that.]

I hear a lot of religious people quote verses that say to give honor to your leaders, then
they completely contradict that by saying “I respect the office, but not the man.”
Yeah, that’s scriptural.
