Interesting. So if Jesus was a son of God, who were God’s other sons? Dave, Norm, Steve, Tony, Derek, Max, and Lloyd? Have I got them all, or did I forget one of the kids?

Barry, give it up. You’re not doing a very good job of faking Christianity. Just stop. This isn’t fooling anybody.

Actually, if Obama would claim to be a Hindu, there would be no problem. Hinduism's position is that God taking form in a human body is necessary for humans to reach God - and that because of that, God has taken that form many times throughout history. Not some different God each time, the same, one God.

In Christian terminology, it would like differentiating between Christ as the Son of God who Is God taking a human body named Jesus, and that exact same Christ doing it agin some other time, in another human body, named something else - but still the same Christ, the same Son of God.

Obviously traditional Christianity does not accept this interpretation. But that doesn't mean billions of people for thousands of years haven't accepted it, because they have.

Thing is, as far as I know, I can't recall Obama ever claiming to be a Hindu. : )

well to be fair, we become children of God by becoming one in Christ, we are not born as children of God..

It sounds muslim to me..Mohamms so called vision was that mankind as individuals can rise to the reality of God, the problem is to God is that he sent his only begotten son to save us, the muslim attitude of deliverance without Christ is salt in the wounds of Jesus...God loves his Son..he has held back his hand until the last soul who is to come home in this age has readied and confessed Christ as Savior , after that it is historical fact that God destroys the chaff and saves the wheat, he will destroy anything that gets between him and Christ, he has said Christ is the only worthy one..what he says creates...peace in Christ..

President Barack Obama referred to Jesus Christ as “a son of God.

Who would have thought Obama would be the first Mormon President?!?
