SBC leader Richard Land calls Obama "very typical 21st

Evangelical leaders discuss Obama's Christianity


A Southern Baptist leader says people who question whether President Barack Obama is a Christian and whether he was born in the United States are "irrational and a little unbalanced."

The Rev. Richard Land said on ABC's "This Week" that it's "just flat nuts" to believe the president is a Muslim or that he wasn't born in Hawaii. Land, who heads the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, said he considers Obama "a very typical 21st Century mainline Protestant."

The Rev. Franklin Graham, in a separate interview on ABC's "This Week," said the question is how you define who's a Christian. He said that for Obama, "going to church means he's a Christian." But Graham said he believes a Christian is one who has given his life to Jesus Christ and "is following him in faith." He added that only God knows if Obama is a Christian in that sense.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama and his family attended an Easter service at a Washington church founded in 1863 by freed slaves. The first family entered Shiloh Baptist Church to a round of applause and sat in a second row pew.

During Sunday's service, pastor Wallace Smith asked that no cameras be used, saying "this is a place of worship." He said the church prays for the first family every Sunday. His sermon was titled "The Resurrection Changes Everything."

Last Easter, the Obamas worshipped at a historically black Methodist church in a different part of the city. On Easter 2009, Obama visited St. John's Church across Lafayette Square from the White House. Forum Index -> Bible Prophecy, Dreams, Visions
