When giving his speech yesterday to the nation’s school children, President Obama tried his best to avoid any political controversy. He may have for the most part succeeded because his speech wasn’t too offensive and in fact could be considered by some as inspirational. But unfortunately, he said a few things to some school children that left fellow Christians again wondering why he even calls himself one.
He was asked by a student, “If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?”
This video answers that question.
Last week it was Islam with the White House Ramadan dinner. This week his favorite person to meet was an ex lawyer turned religious leader of India, Mahatma Gandhi (real name Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi), a person who was a strong believer in Hinduism. (See Hinduism by Charlie Campbell, of Always be Ready Apologetics).
Obama had this to say why he chose Gandhi according to Associated Press:
“He’s somebody I find a lot of inspiration in. He inspired Dr. (Martin Luther) King”. “He ended up doing so much and changed the world just by the power of his ethics.”
If that’s why he chose Gandhi, then what has Jesus done as far as he’s concerned? He only changed several nations of people by his mere words and miraculous wonders. He died and then raised himself from the dead! But step back Jesus because Gandhi was more impressive to Obama.
In less than a two week period, Obama has publicly embraced religious practices and/or persons who are complete contradictions to the teachings of Jesus Christ. He has made acceptable false teachers, prophets and teachings…
… but strangely quiet when it comes to Jesus Christ.
