Mark Driscoll on Inauguration Day: Obama Likely Knows Neither God nor Bible
As Americans tuned in to watch President Barack Obama be sworn into office for his second term on Jan. 21, a number of Christian leaders took to their Twitter accounts to offer reaction.
Arguably the most impassioned remark came from Pastor Mark Driscoll, founding pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Wash., who wrote that Obama knows neither God or the Bible. "Praying for our president, who today will place his hands on a Bible he does not believe to take an oath to a God he likely does not know," Driscoll tweeted. The Mars Hill Church pastor's tweet was retweeted by more than 2,100 people.
The president has publicly professed his faith in God many times, but also has been accused by conservatives of attacking religious freedom, most notably with the Affordable Care Act that mandates religious employers to offer insurance that covers birth control, including abortifacient, to their employees....
I don't know who Mr Driscol or Piper are but I agree with their comments. It seems to me that Mr Obama is a Christian only to the point that claiming to be one got him the votes he needed for his election/re-election. Now that he no longer needs to be concerned with being elected again, or even liked, he has free reign to do as he pleases. Yea.
Pot talking about the kettle? John MacArthur said concerning Driscoll, âHe is a very effective communicatorâa bright, witty, clever, funny, insightful, crude, profane, deliberately shocking, in-your-face kind of guy. His soteriology is exactly right, but that only makes his infatuation with the vulgar aspects of contemporary society more disturbing.â John MacArthur http://defendingcontending.com/2008/09/27/john-macarthur-on-mark-driscoll/
