That's a very good question.

I've heard him state he believes Jesus Christ is his savior - but take a look at Black Liberation Theology, which describes Jesus not as a "savior" of lost souls, but a "savior" of the black race.

"I agree with everything he says," - quote from Rev. Jeremiah Wright (Obama's "spiritual mentor, advisor, and personnal friend" for thirty years), commenting on the author of Black Liberation Theology, James Cone.

"Of all churches, which one most exemplifies your teaching?" - question asked to James Cone. His answer - "Trinity Church in Chicago" - of which Obama was a member for 20+ years.

I have never, never heard Obama state he believes Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Never.

Muslims believe in "Jesus" too, and Rev. Wright, in 2002, gave a Lifetime Achievement Award to Louis Farrakhan.

Does Obama believe Jesus is the Son? Look up Black Liberation Theology.
