True, but no true Christian would also not worship a man (the Pope), dead "saints" or receive biblical authority not from the bible but rather the writings of Rome
[AUTHOR]John Yurich USA[/AUTHOR]If I was Graham I would not have apologized for stating the fact that Obama is not a Christian. No Christian is for abortion, birth control, homosexuality and every other perversion under the sun.[/QUOTE]
I think that an Obama win is going to be the best thing that could happen to the nation. The Christian nation that is. Too many so-called evangelicals have been trying to advance the kingdom of God through political means. Maybe in their despair, they'll turn to God for strength, comfort, and hope.
Pray for Obama and our Government that God might move them to seek to do that which is biblically right. Certainly hasn't happened after 8 years of Republican rule.

Graham attributed our escaping judgment to our support of Israel, for scripture promised Abraham: "I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee" (Gen 12:3). It isn't that the Lord has appointed anyone to lead America and the west. President Bush has bowed to the will of other western leaders, and betrayed Israel. The Lord said, "The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me" (Lev 25:23). President Bush decided the president is greater than God and chose to give away part of the Lord's land. The Lord has removed our protection, and it is all over for the current world order. www.selah-tx.net (Best with Microsoft Internet Explorer)
Graham is the wrong person to cite as knowing the will and word of God. As for Israel, God is done with it as a nation. There is a remnant of Jews who according to the election of Grace, who will be present in heaven with gentiles, but the standing of thephysical nation is no different than the U.S., Russia,etc God has one salvation plan and that is salvation through grace alone, thru faith in Christ.
Get with it people. Looks like God has raised up Obama to lead our nation. He, alone, knows why. No matter how I vote that seems to be the course God has chosen to take. If the country can survive George Bush, then it can and will survive Obama. What do you expect when the heathen rule (democrat or republican).

Christians and lovers of liberty have a much better choice: CHUCK BALDWIN of the Constitution Party, the largest third party in America. Principle over politics! It's time for Americans to resist the manipulation by the so-called two-party system and stand up for liberty before we lose it!

I take that to mean that to mean that your comments are applicable to McCain as well.

No more than one could claim to be a member and adherent of the Church of Rome and still profess to know Christ. In that they both profess works and signs as the basis of your salvation or standing before God, they are both false gospels.
Sandie, please do a better job of getting the facts straight. Obama is no more of a muslim than either McCain or Palin, neighter of which appear to be true biblical believers.
It seems that many people will under no circumstances not vote for him are using that as a rationale to support their decision to not vote for him.
By the way, I'm an independent voter and Christian who will not vote for either of the presidential tickets. I'm intelligent enough to recognize that both parties are flawed when it comes to doing God's will.
