  1. I appreciated your pastoral ministry on today’s shows. Times like these push us towards the deep and difficult questions of life.

    I read the Kushner book when it was new but it has stayed with me all these years. It also reminds me of the wisdom that suffering can bring — to individuals and to whole people groups.

    But, I have to say, I was bothered that you allowed that woman to pray for President Obama’s salvation without any suggestion that he might be a Christian.

    If she doesn’t think Obama is a believer, then she would probably think I’m going to hell too. This is hurtful personally and to the unity of the church.

  2. Greg,

    Actually, I have never seen any indication that President Obama was a born again Christian, and I welcome people praying for his salvation. And 1 Tim 2:1-4 encourages us to pray in this regard.

    So, while I appreciate your kind words, I’m truly baffled by how you can think it brings disunity to the church when we pray for the salvation of someone whose stances and beliefs deny the Lord.

  3. All ex-Muslims have a testimony of how they ‘left Islam’ and ‘became Christian.’

    Obama has no such testimony. It would be like a cultural Muslim who was born Muslim, but doesn’t really practice it saying he’s Christian because he believes Jesus was a righteous spiritual leader.

    Obama never formally went through a formal conversion being baptised in the name of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

  4. I sorta paraphrased your line about Christians helping during a tragedy. I reposted charisma news’ link about the local churches helping. my line was “every time there is a tragedy who’s the first on the scene? the Christians that’s who. where are the buddists? the muslims? the atheists?” I have friends of each of these and other faiths.I’m waiting on a definitive answer. because i seriously want to know.
