Here is the President’s confession:
“I’m a Christian, uh, by choice. Um, you know, my family didn’t – frankly, they weren’t, uh, folks who went to church every – every week. Um, my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn’t, uh, raise me in the church. Uh, so I came to, to, uh, my Christian faith later in life, uh, and it was because the, the, the, precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead – being my brother’s and sister’s keeper, treating others as they would treat me … 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. So that’s what I strive to do, that’s what I pray to do every day. I think my public service is a part of that effort to express my Christian faith.”
Is this the confession of a man who truly understands that he was born a sinful man, and that Christ sufferd and died because he loved us, and not the other way around?
Does our President understand that our “good works” are a response to our Lord’s love, and not an attempt to garner his favor?
For that matter, do you believe that President Obama believed a word of what he said?

Slight change in plans for teh PFW, Denizens.
Realm Intelligence, having nearly caused me to miss Kansas-Southern
PMiss a couple weeks ago and not wanting to lose their heads…convinced me I should do the PFW on Thursday.
Except no one’s playing on Thursday. (Indeed, two of my teams aren’t playing at all this week, but that’s another post.)
Therefore, the PFW will crank up on Friday. All ticket stubs will be honored for the event.
