If Mr. Dooley had read my original letter, it would have been clear to him that it was not about Mr. Obama’s spiritual life but about his use of religious words to try to bamboozle Christian voters. I also made it very clear that I would be judging Mr. Obama’s professed Christianity in my second letter by applying a very simple standard, that being: Whom do you say Christ is? If you subscribe to the belief that there are many roads to the Kingdom of Heaven, then you are not a person who believes in the Christ revealed in Scripture. The Christ revealed in the Scriptures says that He is THE way to the Kingdom, not simply one of many paths. This is what Obama has professed to believe, which is in direct conflict with the words of Jesus Himself!p>And while I am not a theologian, nor do I claim to be, it does not take a theologian to understand the Gospel as it is relatively simple. That being that Jesus was born of a virgin, that He is the only Begotten Son of the eternal Father, that He was sent to redeem the sins of the world, that He was crucified and raised after three days, that He then preached for another forty days before ascending to Heaven, and that He is coming back to reclaim His Bride (the church). I do not need to be a theologian to understand John 1:1-5 or John 3:3-21; and as for the parable of the tares, I understand that the tares will be separated from the wheat at the harvest…but we had better be willing to acknowledge that there are tares among the wheat. God did not give us a spirit of discernment for us to not use it to spare the feelings of others. br> — Eric Edwards br> Walnut Cove, North Carolina /p>
