At the Washington Post this week, we’re talking about Obama’s public faith life. When it comes to convincing the American people he’s a Christian, is he stuck between a rock and hard place?
The president’s dilemma of how to handle his public religious identity could be easily solved if he were to behave in an unabashedly, unmistakably, and unapologetically Christian manner. Instead of hemming and hawing about the “correct” religious moves to make, he should embrace the fullness of the Christian faith he claims to profess and show the world he is a Christian instead of telling us all the time.
Go to church. Talk about Jesus. Don’t take God out of the Declaration of Independence. Let the American people see you turn to God in prayer. Speak humbly of your own need for a savior. These are the things a Christian does.
