Let me paste this into this forum:

In an interview published in Christianity Today magazine in January, 2008, Obama said regarding his beliefs "I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian. I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life. But most importantly, I believe in the example that Jesus set by feeding the hungry and healing the sick and always prioritizing the least of these over the powerful."

On other interviewed with a jurnalist: Cathleen Falsini. This is what Obama's said:

In terms of actual beliefs, Obama told Falsini that he has a deep faith "...rooted in the Christian tradition." He added, "I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people, that there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and that there's an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived."

Regarding his conversion experience, Obama said, "It wasn't an epiphany. It was much more of a gradual process for me. I know there are some people who fall out. Which is wonderful. God bless them. For me, I think it was just a moment to certify or publicly affirm a growing faith in me."

ONE THINGS SHOWED ON THAT STATEMENT THAT OBAMA IS PRACTISING WORD'S OF GOD IN THE BIBLE WHICH SAID IN MATHEW 5:44: "BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU" <-- WHICH IS SHOW THE TRUE CHARACTERISTIC OF CHRISTIANITY..

BLESS YOU OBAMA!!!
