Letter: Many Americans without power of holy spirit

Some time ago on Fox News, a man made the comment, "Like all previous presidents before him, President Obama is a Christian."

Then in a recent article in The Press, someone said, " Like three out of four Americans, President Obama is a Christian."

But when President Obama took office he said, "Only government could help." No mention of God whatsoever.

I don't know how many years the president attended church but personally speaking, I don't think past the fourth grade. But in all fairness to the president, a lot of Americans who call themselves Christians are in the same boat. Because they've never had a one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ; the one who went to the cross, took our place and laid down his life and shed his blood so our sins could be washed away and we could be reconciled to God, they're still lost.

The people who openly defy God and still call themselves Christians will experience God's judgment someday. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, Heb. 10-3. But John 3-16 says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." And Jesus said,"Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God," John 3-3. I am saved by God's grace, the blood of his only begotten son, Jesus and the power of his holy spirit.
