Are the top three presidential candidates saved? Who knows? Only God can judge that. But here are some interesting perspectives on the Big Three:
In an article on McCain’s biography tour, I found this tidbit in the L.A. Times:
Each speech was a catalog of sin, then secular salvation, mostly given in made-for-TV settings where he spoke of the dawning awareness of a purpose larger than himself—serving his country. The narrative that he told was a classic tale of redemption through selflessness, as old as Shakespeare…
Chelsea Clinton told about how mom is a really good person and why she should be the next president in an interview with the L.A. Times in January. But is she good enough to get to Heaven?
“My mom is the best person I know…. For better or worse my parents have pounded it into my head when I was little and growing up that being a good citizen and being an active participant in our democracy is part of being a good person.”
In a OneNewsNow report Obama thinks you can be good enough to get to Heaven:
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senator Barack Obama has told an audience that although he believes Christ died for his sins, those who reject that teaching can also be children of God.
During a campaign stop yesterday in Greensboro, North Carolina, Senator Obama told the audience that he believes he “can have everlasting life” because Jesus Christ died for his sins. But he then told a questioner that he believes Jews and Muslims who live moral lives are just as much “children of God” as he is.
The Illinois Democrat added that his late mother didn’t share his faith but was a kind and generous person, so he’s “sure she’s in heaven.” Read the rest from OneNewsNow here.
A SOLUTION TO THE CONFUSION
Somebody needs to hand these people a Gospel tract. Or better yet, a nice loud open air preacher just outside the National Conventions will be just fine. Any volunteers?
R.A. Torrey (1856-1928) said this:
“You can reach men in an open-air meeting that you can reach in no other way. I can tell of instance after instance where men who have not been at church or a mission hall for years have been reached by open-air meetings. The persons I have known to be reached and converted through open- air meetings have included thieves, drunkards, gamblers, saloon-keepers, abandoned women, murderers, lawyers, doctors, theatrical people, society people, in fact pretty much every class.” May I add: Politicians?
