The Essential Obama

In June 2006, US Presidential Candidate Barack Obama gave a speech which I feel reveals his essential beliefs. A man’s theology ultimate dictates his morality. If you want to learn more about the “core” Obama, read or watch this speech.

It is a very interesting, open, and to some extent comprehensive speech. I think that Obama’s views match the views of the vast majority of the nation, and he does a good job articulating them. Because his views are so mainstream, I think he has a good chance of winning the Presidency. I also believe his beliefs are seriously in error. His speech evidences the relativistic pluralism which is seizing the heart of our nation, while the outer “shell” of religion remains (for now).

Or watch it here:

Essentially the big error in his thinking is believing that good and evil can be determined without needing to rely on divine revelation. The truth is that if God has not told us what we should and should not do, anything can be justified.
