Will Obama Represent God or Americans As President?Last night, Barack Obama did the favor of giving a nationally-televised audience for Rick Warren, the ambitious preacher who espouses a radical agenda of mixing religion and politics. At Warren's church, Obama helped Rick Warren make Christianity into a test for public office, answering on television questions about his religious beliefs, and how he would impose those religious beliefs on the White House. Barack Obama was eager to submit himself to the test of whether he was Christian enough to be President, and so he embraced the fundamental idea of theocracy - that the duty of leaders like himself is to carry out the will of God. Obama said, "I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and that I am redeemed through him. That is a source of strength and sustenance on a daily basis. Yeah, I know that I donít walk alone. And I know that if I can get myself out of the way, that I can maybe carry out in some small way what He intends... a sense of obligation to embrace not just words but through deeds the expectations that God has for us." It's stated less blatantly than George W. Bush's claim that "God speaks through me", but the meaning is the same. Barack Obama has stated that he thinks it's possible for him to serve as a channel for the will of God. Is that what Barack Obama intends to do as President? To serve the expectations of God? I thought that the job of the President of the United States was to carry out what the American People intend, and embrace the expectations of the American People. So, who does Barack Obama really intend to represent in the White House? God or the American People?
