Carol Forsloff questions why Christians are skeptical of Obama’s birth certificate, etc.
The claim used by Christians most to support their beliefs is that people should have faith and that faith will allow them to believe these exceptional ideas about Jesus. For centuries, however, many people continue to refuse to believe any account of Jesus, demanding more and more concrete evidence about the man.
These days Barack Obama, who is not considered by his supporters to be anyone other than a politician and ordinary man, is under scrutiny by some Christians for lacking, in their belief, reasonable and acceptable birth evidence.
If faith is an important value for people, and love to be the driving force of Christian ethics, there appears to be hypocrisy in refuting the arguments of agnostics and atheists about the birth and death of Jesus while claiming a birth certificate backed up by physical evidence of a contemporary man should not be trusted.
