Christian Leaders’ Response to the Controversy over President Obama’s Christian Faith

I was encouraged to read that recently a number of Christian leaders signed an open letter denouncing the baseless speculation over the authenticity of President Obama’s Christian faith. Signatories included famous leaders like T.D. Jakes (author, pastor and televangelist), Jim Wallis (author and president of Sojourners), Donald Miller (author), Rich Stearns (president of WorldVision), Kirbyjon Caldwell (a pastor in the Houston area who is close to the Bush family), as well as a whole bunch of folks with lower profiles. I also found it encouraging that the signatories came from a number of Christian theological perspectives including nondenominational, Presbyterian, Baptist, Seventh-Day Adventist, Moravian, Catholic, Episcopalian, Pentecostal, United Church of Christ and a few others.

Information about the letter is available in the article in the link below.

Deuteronomy 32:3

I will proclaim the name of the LORD.
Oh, praise the greatness of our God!

Psalm 15:1-3

LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?
He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart
and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong
and casts no slur on his fellowman
