Recently, Pastor Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas said during an interview on CNN’s “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer” that he takes President Barack Obama at his word that he is a Christian.

“I believe with all my heart that he’s a Christian, as he says he is,” Osteen maintained. “Again, I wouldn’t try to push people away. That‘s just the opposite of what we’re supposed to do…my personality is, I give people the benefit of the doubt.”

Yesterday, President Barack Obama said during an interview on ABC News Broadcast that he has concluded that it is important for him to affirm that he thinks same-sex couples should be able to get married.

Pastor Joel Hunter, an evangelical pastor who President Barack Obama calls his spiritual adviser, says he’s disappointed in the president’s decision to endorse same-sex marriage.

Hunter, who is the pastor of the 15,000 member Northland church in the Orlando, Florida area, told The Associated Press that Obama called him before the broadcast. Hunter said he told the president he disagreed with his interpretation of what the Bible says about marriage. Hunter said the president reassured him he would protect the religious freedom of churches who oppose gay marriage.

Pastor Hunter said the announcement makes it harder for him to support Obama, but he will continue to do so.

Here is my question to Pastor Joel Osteen and Joel Hunter: Just because President Barack Obama says he is a Christian, does it mean he really is? Do you continue to support President Barack Obama even though he lives in defiance and disobedience to God’s Word, which clearly says that homosexuality is a sin?

This What The Bible Says About Fake Christians

“I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don’t even eat with such people.” 1. Corinthians 5:11 NLT

This Is What The Bible Says About Same-Sex Marriage

“So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.” Romans 1:24-27 NLT

It is no wonder that our nation is in the spiritually deplorable state that it is in right now. Yes, this nation is confused and deceived because the leaders are living in compromise and not standing for the truth, and so the people follow, and are groaning and suffering because of it!

“When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan.” Proverbs 29:2 NLT
