Senator Obama's Faith

From Keith Pavlischek on First Things Blog.

From the Westminster Shorter Catechism:
Q. 14. What is sin?

A. Sin is any want of conformity unto, or transgression of, the law of God.

From the Baltimore Catechism:
Q. 278. What is actual sin?
A. Actual sin is any willful thought, word, deed, or omission contrary to the law of God.

From Senator Obama:
Q. Do you believe in sin?
Q. What is sin?
OBAMA: Being out of alignment with my values.

H T: Against the Grain


The quote from Senator Obama is taken from a 2004 interview with Christina Falsani, AKA God Girl, the religion editor of the Chicago Sun Times and reposted on her blog. It is a very good look at Senator Obama’s genuine and serious faith. Whether you think his comments are those of a new Messiah or deserving of Bell, Book and Candle it is a good look into the heart of the man who may well be the next president.

I ran across this the other day and had the Baron print it out so I could read the whole thing:

"Redemptive Fallacy"

I hope that term catches on. It describes so well all the Utopian pie-in-the-sky "cures" that socialists keep foisting on us, only to make things worse.

Nidra Poller is so sharp.
