In responding to Rhea, Bela appears to have a minimalist's view of the truth concerning Christianity, which, while it may provide a source of comfort, it still misses the truth about the Revelation of Jesus Christ and His earthly ministry, and the condition and future of humanity as described in the Holy Bible.

In making the Biblical distinction about the whole of humanity, the Word of the LORD calls all of humanity part of the creation. Only those who have a believing faith in the LORD through the Savior are called ‘children of Almighty God'. This is a result of the sin in the garden, which was caused in Adam's rebellion to the Word of the LORD. When Adam and Eve spiritually died due to their sin, they remained creations of the LORD, but they lost the distinction of being His children, until the promise was made for the provision of the Savior (Gen 3:15) and they believed His Word.

The truth about what the Revelation of Jesus Christ says is that He did enter into this world to try and make it a better place for all to live, for if that were true, why is death still the fact of this mortal life. Would it make more sense that all He brought to life remained living….to this day? But in the contrary, His mission was to reveal the living Word of the LORD, that believing in Him for salvation and eternal life in an existence beyond what this world has to offer is the real purpose for His ministry. Jesus Christ said, love Almighty God, believe in Him for remission of sins, and accept Him into your hearts in obedience to His love.

As to the point of this discussion, Barack Obama's spiritual condition was supposed to have solved during the interview at Saddleback Church when Rick Warren asked him point blank about his faith. We will allow Mr. Obama's answer be his witness of his faith, but the circumstances of whether that gives any comfort as to his fitness to be president remains to be seen. He will not be elected to the presidency based on his claim to be a Christian, for you can bet the future of the United States of America that the elitists in the left are not voting on his Christianity, but for their perception of a God free America, something many Muslims believe about America anyway.
