But the sticky wicket was with those thorny Christians and their insistence that their Savior is the only one true God, and there is no salvation or blessing apart from Him, that all other religions are false imitations of the one who left heaven, which He created, died on a cross, and rose again, so that He and He alone can save people from their sins when they turn to Him.
That is what got them into trouble, and that is precisely what most of the founding fathers of America believed. This is why today’s Christians are accused of “intolerance”!
So when Mr. Obama articulates a 21st century American drift into believing that all religions are equal in value (even though he calls himself a Christian), he is in part leading that drift. In doing so he is surrounded by some well-known preachers who, again, claim to be Christians.
That shipwreck of belief has been misleading millions of lost souls and taking them down into a spiritual abyss.
True Christians in America need to learn how to articulate their faith to a very different culture from that of their forbearers.
Screaming that, “we are departing from our foundational truth”, is only stating the obvious.
In future articles I will be defining the issues, to give those of us who are troubled by the effect of this cultural hurricane, the know-how to not only stand for the truth, but to thrive.
