MARRIAGE: Obama shows he’s not a true Christian

Now I know for sure that President Obama is not a true Christian. If he is a true believer in Jesus Christ, he would know what Jesus said about marriage being between a man and a woman, a father and a mother, a husband and his wife.

In Matthew 19:5, Jesus said that ” a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” Jesus was quoting Genesis 2:24, which reads, “… a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” These same statements can also be found in Mark 10:7, and Ephesians 5:31.

If Obama were a true Christian, he would know all of this and would, from the heart, support marriage as ordained by God from the Scriptures.
