Nothing is more annoying to me than reading comments on my YouTube videos, blog, or getting emails from people determined to prove that I'm not really a Christian. I firmly believe that I have nothing to prove to anyone. If someone doesn't want to believe that I'm a Christian when I say I am, then that's their own prerogative. But I have to wonder, what do they actually gain by proving that I'm not Christian? It's like they're trying to find a reason to kick me out of some secret society. Last I checked, I thought the evangelical purpose of Christianity was to spread the Good News in order to increase the number of Christians worldwide. Maybe since I'm not "really" a Christian, I missed the memo that changed that.
What's my rant about... Who are we to question another person's self-identification? Are we really that righteous that we have the authority to decide whether someone is a Christian or not? We have no right whatsoever to invalidate another person's spiritual journey. So what will it take to convince us that President Obama is actually a Christian? Here's a video from Stephen Colbert for your amusement that offers up some suggestions.
