Obama / Newsweek: “America is not Christian”

Posted by:

On April 6, 2009 while at a press conference in Turkey, President Obama made the following statement:  “One of the great strengths of the United States is … we have a very large Christian population — we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.”   On April 4, 2009 Newsweek magazine published an edition entitled “The Rise and Fall of Christian America.”  Jon Meacham wrote the feature article called, “The End of Christian America.”  In the month of April, the same month that Christians remember and celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Newsweek and Obama have declared that America is no longer a Christian nation.  While the number of Bible Believing, Christ followers has, no doubt, declined, America is nonetheless a nation founded under God by men who loved and revered God and His Word.  Those of us who do know Christ as our Savior must not miss this opportunity to boldly proclaim the truth while we still have the right to do so freely.  The real answer that the world needs is the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Anything short of that will only be temporary relief.  However, we must also be light and salt in a dark world and make every effort to make an impact on our sphere of influence.  Do you love God?  Do you love America?  What are you doing about it?
