Why Obama Decided To Become Christian

First we have this from his acolytes at the Associated Press:

Obama tells questioner he’s ‘Christian by choice’

By Charles Babington And Darlene Superville, Associated Press Writers Tue Sep 28, 2010

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – President Barack Obama, in a rare discussion about his religious beliefs, described himself on Tuesday as a "Christian by choice" who arrived at his faith in adulthood because "the precepts of Jesus Christ" helped him envision the kind of life he wanted to lead.

Obama talked about his beliefs when he was asked, "Why are you a Christian." The question was posed by a woman at a backyard conversation here, part of a series of meetings Obama is holding to talk informally with Americans…

"I’m a Christian by choice," Obama told his audience here. "My family didn’t – frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week. And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn’t raise me in the church.

"So I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead – being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me," he continued.

"And I think also understanding that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility we all have to have as human beings, that we’re sinful and we’re flawed and we make mistakes, and that we achieve salvation through the grace of God," Obama said. "But what we can do, as flawed as we are, is still see God in other people and do our best to help them find their own grace."

Obama said he seeks to do that through daily prayer and public service. "That’s what I strive to do. That’s what I pray to do every day," he said. "I think my public service is part of that effort to express my Christian faith."

But, as we noted back in March 2008, Mr. Obama has spelled out quite clearly why he joined Reverend Wright’s Trinity church in his first autobiography, “Dreams From My Father,” pp 131-6:


… When I asked for other pastors to talk to [for help with his community organizing], several gave me the name of Reverend Wright… Younger ministers seemed to regard Reverend Wright as a mentor of sorts, his church a model for what they themselves hoped to accomplish

Toward the end of October I finally got a chance to pay Reverend Wright a visit and see the church for myself. [A] small sign spiked into the grass — FREE SOUTH AFRICA in simple block letters

[Reverend Wright] had grown up in Philadelphia, the son of a Baptist minister. He had resisted his father’s vocation at first, joining the Marines out of college, dabbling with liquor, Islam, and black nationalism in the sixties

He learned Hebrew and Greek, read the literature of Tillich and Niebuhr and the black liberation theologians

“I’ll try to help you if I can,” he said. “But you should know that having us involved in your effort isn’t necessarily a feather in your cap.”

“Why’s that?”

Reverend Wright shrugged. “Some of my fellow clergy don’t appreciate what we’re about. They feel like we’re too radical. Others, we ain’t radical enough. Too emotional. Not emotional enough. Our emphasis on African history, on scholarship –” …

“We don’t buy into these false divisions here. It’s not about income, Barack. Cops don’t check my bank account when they pull me over and make me spread-eagle against the car. These miseducated brothers, like that sociologist at the University of Chicago, talking about ‘the declining significance of race.’ Now, what country is he living in?”

“Life’s not safe for a black man in this country, Barack. Never has been. Probably never will be.”

Afterward, in the parking lot, I sat in my car and thumbed through a silver brochure that I’d picked up in the reception area. It contained a set of guiding principles-a “Black Value System”- that the congregation had adopted in 1979

A sensible, heartfelt list… There was one particular passage in Trinity’s brochure that stood out, though, a commandment more self-conscious in its tone, requiring greater elaboration. “A Disavowal of the Pursuit of Middleclassness,” the heading read. “While it is permissible to chase ‘middleincomeness’ with all our might,” the text stated, those blessed with the talent or good fortune to achieve success in the American mainstream must avoid the “psychological entrapment of Black ‘middleclassness’ that hypnotizes the successful brother or sister into believing they are better than the rest and teaches them to think in terms of ‘we’ and ‘they’ instead of ‘US’!” …

It was a powerful program, this cultural community, one more pliant than simple nationalism, more sustaining than my own brand of organizing

For [Reverend Wright and the Trinity parishioners], the principles in Trinity’s brochure were articles of faith no less than belief in the Resurrection. You have some good ideas, they would tell me. Maybe if you joined the church you could help us start a community program. Why don’t you come by on Sunday?

And, for the record, here are some excerpts from the "Black Value System" pamphlet in question, via the Trinity Church’s website – though, since removed:


These Black Ethics must be taught and exampled in homes, churches, nurseries and schools, wherever Blacks are gathered. They must reflect the following concepts:

Commitment of God [sic]

“The God of our weary years” will give us the strength to give up prayerful passivism and become Black Christian Activist, soldiers for Black freedom and the dignity of all humankind…

Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect

To accomplish anything worthwhile requires self-discipline. We must be a community of self-disciplined persons, if we are to actualize and utilize our own human resources instead of perpetually submitting to exploitation by others. Self discipline coupled with a respect for self, will enable each of us to be an instrument of Black Progress, and a model for Black Youth.

Disavowal of the Pursuit of “Middleclassness”

Classic methodology on control of captives teaches that captors must keep the captive ignorant educationally, but trained sufficiently well to serve the system. Also, the captors must be able to identify the “talented tenth” of those subjugated, especially those who show promise of providing the kind of leadership that might threaten the captor’s control.

Those so identified as separated from the rest of the people by:

Killing them off directly, and/or fostering a social system that encourages them to kill off one another.

Placing them in concentration camps, and/or structuring an economic environment that induces captive youth to fill the jails and prisons.

Seducing them into a socioeconomic class system which while training them to earn more dollars, hypnotizes them into believing they are better than others and teaches them to think in terms of “we” and “they” instead of “us”

Somehow these don’t sound quite like the "precepts of Jesus Christ." But maybe that is just us.

    There is not one once of orthodox Christianity in this sentence.

  5. Somehow these don’t sound quite like the “precepts of Jesus Christ.” But maybe that is just us.

    No, you’re right. My Bible and my catechism say nothing about the “precepts of Jesus Christ” condoning abortion, gay marriage, the subjugation of citizens under a crushing government regime, or the confiscation of personal wealth and property by that same body.

    What he really means is the “precepts of Jesus Christ” according to the DNC. In other words, not religion but morally therapeutic deism.

    In my mind, it’s no coincidence that the same day Obama says his faith is based on the “precepts of Jesus Christ” that this survey, indicating Americans’ lack of knowledge on religion, came out, courtesy Yahoo News:

    A new survey of Americans’ knowledge of religion found that atheists, agnostics, Jews and Mormons outperformed Protestants and Roman Catholics in answering questions about major religions, while many respondents could not correctly give the most basic tenets of their own faiths.

    Jesus shook his head and said, “I still love you even if you are a liar.”

  7. GetBackJack says:

    I’m not going to speak to what may be the man’s relationship with Jesus Christ. That’s above my pay grade. But …. having read and studied the Scriptures all my life, including a Doctorate in Theology, with an emphasis on ancient languages and their original meanings I can say with 100% certainty that ..

    1. Unless God ordains that government, that government is doomed to go down in flames
    2. That Jesus, like His Father, despises taxes, not the tax man. Unless the tax man does not repent of his sins.
    3. That socialism, being the very picture of Humanism, is the habitation of Satan
    4. That seeking power of men is about the most damnable offense before God
    5. That redistributing another man’s gain is a close second
    6. That unless you put God before all else, whatever you do will end in catastrophic failure
    7. When you presume to speak for the Trinity, you better be In The Spirit … think on the fate of Judah of Kerriyoth (Judas Iscariot)
    8. God abhors debts (hear that NYT? Taxes are debts payable in debt-driven currency)

    … and so much more. So the Jesus Obama ‘came to know’ may actually be Jesus Gonzalez Hernandez of Tijuana for all we know.

    What we do know is that Obama is utterly ignorant of the mission, life and salvation of Jesus (the) Christ.

    • ptat says:

      As usual, Obama’s response is delusional and phony. “Precepts”? Why not become a follower of Moses, then, and try to follow the 10 precepts. The heretical theology he splahes around in is staggering in it’s cluelessness. Became a Christian”by choice”?! Rather than at gunpoint?! Brother’s keeper–his brother lives in a shack on $2 amonth in Africa, his aunt in gov housing illegally or something–he gave less than 1% of his income to charity last year! Prays and tries daily to help people “find their own grace”!! What?! Then the professor lists all of the religions we tolerate in America (yawn), even atheism! Well, I’ll be, I never knew that. As long as you are running out the clock, why don’t you list some more religions….what a MORON!! At this point, Jesus could only say–“I never knew you” for you sure as heck never knew Me…

  8. Petronius says:

    Some thoughts on the “Disavowal of the Pursuit of ‘Middleclassness'” as practiced at Rev Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church.

    How many lives has the Liberal war on middle class morality destroyed?

    For is it not Liberal policies –– the ceaseless Liberal attacks on Christianity, on middle class morality, and on American traditions, institutions, history, values, and culture, even on the value of human life itself –– that have done more than anything else to damage the weak and marginalized in society?

    Go to North Philadelphia, inner-city Newark, or Southeast Washington DC, a stone’s throw from the Capitol (so to speak), and look at the violence, the filth, degradation, and social decay to see the end result of a humanity who have been liberated by Liberalism from Christianity and middle class morality, from traditional hierarchies of honor and shame, from the virtues of self-reliance and self-responsibility, of trust and dependability, of promises kept, of dignity, reputation, thrift, practical judgment, hard work, from the friendships, family obligations, connections, communities, and churches that once made this Nation great.

    Yes, go there and you will witness the great promise of Liberalism fulfilled.

    • Adam Moreira says:

      Coincidence; you obviously have not visited any of those areas. The church is still a strong institutution there, despite what you see.

      I counter with South Jamaica (Queens, NYC), the South Bronx, and that inner-city Newark you use as your example.

      Those lives destroyed were destroyed by their own laziness – nothing more.

    • proreason says:

      “Those lives destroyed were destroyed by their own laziness – nothing more.”

      I don’t buy it.

      It’s culture…..and culture is taught.

      The problem in those communities is the leadership, who have been as irresonsible as it is possible to be. The Sharptons, Jacksons and Wrights of the world have made deliberate decisions to enrich themselves by exploiting millions of people. They are as bad as the worst African dictators. And of course, they have been abetted by Democrat politicians who are at least as criminal. Future generations will see it as a tragedy equivalent to slavery.

    • Adam Moreira says:

      @proreason, but that crutch only goes so far. Someone has to break it…the question is who?

    • Liberals Demise says:

      “……but that crutch only goes so far.”

      I wouldn’t call it a crutch, Adam. They openly use a segment of society and keep them down to profit from it personally.
      Don’t look for them to break the “crutch” as it would starve the Golden Goose that keeps them in the lap of luxury.

      what LD said

      Salve, comrade Moreira or Silva or whatever-your-name-of-the-month is.

      Still waiting for the electrification of Moscow? Well, hang in there. Won’t be long now, comrade.

      No doubt they will bring in some German engineers to sort things out.

      By the way, you’d better do something about that acne. Don’t leave it go too long.

  9. jobeth says:

    He reminds me of Piglosi when she stood up in front of people and said “Do you know what my favorite word is?
    Its ‘THE WORD’ ” and then rambled on saying nothing that made any sense, but using a lot of words to say it. No scripture, no Christian concept, no Christian story…just The Word…was her favorite word.

    If she really understood “The Word”, she would have understood that her statement made no sense.

    Both cut out of the same phony cloth

    Why Obama Decided To Become Christian, because it was politically expedient.

  11. Adam Moreira says:

    It’s clear what Obama’s religion is: politics.

    But that aside, what religion one practices is not the public’s business.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      Unless one chooses to be in the public eye. Which by the way, he did.
      As with the way he votes, policies he puts forth and so on.
      All part of the public business.
      Politics……….go figure.

    who arrived at his faith in adulthood because “the precepts of Jesus Christ” helped him envision the kind of life he wanted to lead

    While I do believe with God, nothing will be impossible – how can someone come to ‘his faith’ (implied here for the stupid masses as Christianity) by the precepts of Jesus Christ – when he has always admitted that no one in his family took him to a Christian church to learn the precepts of Jesus Christ? He mistakenly left out picking and attending a church to learn those precepts upon which he based ‘his faith’.

    I can’t decide if he truly is an idiot, if he truly thinks that everyone else in America is so stupid that just mentioning precepts (I do believe he means the 4th definition [4. Law . ] rather than the 1st [commandment]) and Jesus Christ – that they will assume he is a Christian, or that he has never ever read a Bible to realize how damn stupid he sounds to those who have.

    The more he attempts to prove his Christianity the more he disproves it – this is absolutely one subject he should just keep his mouth shut, to me he just proves how truly stupid he is. And how truly stupid he thinks we all are. Both are incredibly insulting for a man who is President of the Greatest Nation in the World.

    Obama’s chose Trinity Church not to become a Christian, but for it’s possibility of rise to black power, organizing power, nationalism power, black anger, & black pride. Obama the blood spilled was that of his own. Obama is careful not to mention the resurrection of Christ; after all muslims believe in the resurrection of Mohammad. And He does not say the Blood of Jesus. He does not take the call to come down to the front. In 2006 campaign book he hints that he became a Christian if to at least understand the mysteries of God better. Obama believes he is the savior.

    Dreams From My Father – Barack Obama

    pg.286 – 287
    …By widening its doors to allow all who would enter, a church like Trinity assured its members that their fates remained inseparably bound, that an intelligible “us” still remained.
    It was a powerful program, this cultural community, one more pliant than simple nationalism, more sustaining than my own brand of organizing. Still, I couldn’t help wondering whether it would be enough to keep more people from leaving the city or young men out of jail. Would the Christian fellowship between a black school administrator, say, and black school parent change the way the schools were run? Would the interest in maintaining such unity allow Reverend Wright to take a forceful stand on the latest proposals to reform public housing. And if men like Reverend Wright failed to take a stand, if churches like Trinity refused to engage with real power and risk genuine conflict, then what chance would there be of holding the larger community intact?
    Sometimes I would put such questions to the people I met with. They would respond with the same bemused look Reverend Philips and Reverend Wright had given me.
    For them, the principles were articles of faith no less than belief in the Resurrection. You have some good ideas, they would tell me. Maybe if you joined the church you could help us start a community program. Why don’t you come by on Sunday?
    And I would shrug and play the question off, unable to confess that I could no longer distinguish between faith and mere folly, between faith and simple endurance; that while I believed in the sincerity I heard in their voices, I remained a reluctant skeptic, doubtful of my own motives, wary of expedient conversion, having too many quarrels with God to accept a salvation too easily won.
    pg 294 excerpt

    People began to shout, to rise from their seats and clap and cry out, a forceful wind carrying the reverend’s voice up into the rafters. As I watched and listened from my seat, I began to hear all the notes from the past three years swirl about me. The courage and fear of Ruby and Will. The race pride and anger of men like Rafiq.
    The desire to let go, the desire to escape, the desire to give oneself up to a God that could somehow put a floor on despair.

    And in that single note-hope!-I heard something else; at the foot of that cross, inside thousands of churches across the city, I imagined the stories of ordinary black people merging with the stories of David and Goliath, Moses and Pharaoh, the Christians in the lion’s den, Ezekiel’s field of dry bones. Those stories – of survival, and freedom, and & hope – became our story, my story; the blood that had spilled was our blood, the tears our tears; until this black church on this bright day, seemed once more a vessel carrying the story of a people into future generations and into a larger world. Our trials and triumphs became at once unique and universal, black and more than black; in chronicling our journey, ….

  14. TerryAnne says:

    Personally, I find the pronoun switch in the following to be the most telling:

    “And I think also understanding that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility we all have to have as human beings, that we’re sinful and we’re flawed and we make mistakes, and that we achieve salvation through the grace of God,” Obama said.

    Dying for his sins, but using the collective when referring to flaws/mistakes.

    He’s so pathetic!

    You missed a word or two in the Title of this post..

    NOT “Why Obama Decided to Become a Christian”
    BUT “Why Obama Decided to PRETEND to Become a Christian”

    Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
    Mat 7:16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
    Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.
    Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
    Mat 7:19 Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    As a fruit inspector, I see no fruit to back up this claim.


  16. hushpuppy says:

    John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments”

    Matt. 15:9 “In vain do they worship me, keeping for Commandments the doctrines of men.”

    1John 2:4 “He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”

    Since Christ took our sin and paid the penalty for the sins, He expects us, just like the woman caught in the act of adultery, to ‘go and sin no more’.

    Mar 10:19 “Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother”

    …and so on…

    It is so obvious that he got his speech writers to slap together something religious sounding, which he duly memorized and it sounds phony. I don’t know how anyone could be fooled by his religiosity.

    Remember this howler?

    Dr. Dean recently told an audience in Iowa that he prayed daily. On the plane he declined to detail his prayer ritual but described how a 2002 trip to Israel deepened his understanding of the connections between Judaism and Christianity. He named Job as his favorite New Testament book, then later corrected himself, noting that it is in the Old Testament.


    There’s an old saying: It is far easier for a man of good character to act as if he were bad than it is for a man of bad character to act as if he were a man of good charactor.

    I rest my case, Your Honor.

Until you offer proof of your assertion, I am free to believe the documents we DO have available over your faith in fairytales and blind faith. It is YOU who are misrepresenting, not the registration document, until you prove with documentation your assertion. As for religious affiliation, the government of Indonesia registered him as a Muslim according to his parent’s wishes. Again, proof to the contrary being absent, I am free to believe he was enrolled at that time as a Muslim as the legal documents represent.

    • Adam Moreira says:

      He couldn’t have been an Indonesian citizen, because he wasn’t born there and neither parent had ties to Indonesia (the father was a British citizen and mother an American citizen). His father would have had to forge documents to even be allowed to take his son into Indonesia to go to school as an Indonesian citizen, a former Dutch colony.

      At the time, Obama would be an American citizen. In other words, he would have been in Indonesia illegally.

      As a common citizen Obama couldn’t qualify for a security clearance, yet he now has access to all the levers of power of the most powerful nation on earth.

      The last time I renewed my drivers license, I had to provide an official copy of my birth certificate (not a photo-copy) and prove I was a US citizen. I have never held a drivers license in any state except Missouri and I’ve been licensed for almost 50 years now, so I’ve definitely been in the system long enough and my driving history/information should have been easily verifiable, yet I HAD to show my birth certificate.

    • proreason says:

      Why was Obamy even in Indonesia?

      The country had experienced a failed COMMUNIST REVOLUTION a few months prior to his arrival. Neither he nor his mother spoke the language. The stepfather was forced to return to Indonesia from Hawaii by his own government. He abused the mother and they divorced after a few years. It was one of the most dangerous and alien countries in the world, particularly for foreigners. And the family didn’t have the protections afforded to the foreign oil industry workers who lived in guarded enclaves either.

      Yet Obamy’s mother brought him into that situation. What mother would do that? It would be shocking to learn that even one other mother in a US population of about 225 million did anything similar, wouldn’t it?

      Of course, it would have been an ideal place to begin the indoctrination of a 6 year old future Marxist. A place so obscure that nobody could ever figure out with any certainty where they went, who they met, or what they did there.

      And conveniently, anybody who knows anything about what happened there, except Obamy and his younger half sister (who was an infant at the time), are dead.

      Why, it’s almost like the man’s past has been deliberated obscured, isn’t it?

  21. James says:

    “…it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead…treating others as they would treat me”

    Treat others as they treat me?!? That must be in the Apocryphal “Gospel According to Barry.”That’s a far cry from “Bless those who curse you”

  22. Mithrandir says:

    Obama kicks off the crazy season by claiming he is a Christian….
    This obviously planted question (aren’t they all?) shows that people thinking he is a Muslim must be paying off, otherwise he wouldn’t have given us this ridiculous monologue.

    He already addressed the birth certificate thing (also effective) by saying, “I can’t walk around all day with my birth certificate plastered to my forehead…” –If you didn’t pay lawyers $1,000,000 to hide your documents, no one would be asking about all this.


  23. Mae says:

    It’s a tricky thing judging anyone’s faith. I’ve certainly done my share of judging. However, if Mr. Obama says he’s Christian and he’s been baptized (was he baptized in Rev. Wright’s church?), then he should be designated a member of the Christian religion. He does seem to know little about the particulars of the faith he professes, though. I sincerely hope that he comes to understand that true faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is not a social agenda. It certainly is not black liberation theology. Rather than tweets from religious leaders, it would be much more profitable for him to read, pray and meditate over the Gospel of John and decide whether he believe what it says. Then read all the rest of the New Testament. Find out what Christ was like here on earth and what He said His role is. God the Father calls us to be like Jesus Christ…little Christs. From Him we gain our salvation and are inspired thereafter to good works and obedience.

    Mr. Moreira, you have brought up a good point re citizenship in Indonesia. Since Mr. Obama has not allowed any of his original birth or school records to be released, that school document could, indeed, be a forgery, which does not, of course, mean that he did not go to school there. On the other hand, he may have been adopted by Mr. Soetoro, the Indonesian father of his half-sister, and his mother’s second husband, as many suspect. His Indonesian school friends say they remember him and he, himself, I believe, remembers acting up in class when they studied the Koran to the point that he was disciplined. We do not know exactly what to believe. All of it could be cleared up completely by his releasing all his documents. Why he will not is puzzling.

      Maybe we should nick-name him ‘Senator Backfire’.

      Senator Backfire #1, G.I.

  24. Chase says:

    “having too many quarrels with God”

    Pride. Can’t come down from his article of faith that he, a single man, with such narrow experience and perspective, should not be greater than, or should be able to understand, or by power of personality, have control, pull, influence, on God. He lacks the humility to approach God as a child, to come to an understanding of his origin, any divine purpose in his life, but instead kicks against the pricks, being an organizer, with his own explanations for the ‘whys’ in his life, most of which are answered sufficient for his pride and pea-brain by God-less communist egalitarian ‘social justice’, and Christian-less but -tinged racist Liberation theology.

    He, like so many other lost people, has decidedly made his “God” through his own imaging.
