Although I could have certainly enumerated more points to flesh this list out more, I will keep it short for brevity's sake. A true and committed Christian is one that "walks the walk and talks the talk" - not just one or the other. Perhaps President 0bama needs to parse his words a little more carefully and define how he defines the word "committed."
As a committed Christian that has been blessed with many committed friends and acquaintances, we all share one thing in common; a passionate and committed devotion to the Blessed Trinity, God's Holy Word, and evangelizing the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ - and ours is not a passion and devotion that can be flipped on and off like a light switch. The Bible says we are known by our fruits (our actions on public display), so how did 0bama miss this most fundamental lesson that is taught in most good churches and Sunday Schools? Saying that you are a Christian and actually living it are two entirely different animals. One can fool other men with false professions of faith, but God is never fooled or mocked.
Someone will likely misquote the Scriptures and snap back at me "judge not lest you be judged." But this one scripture only refers to judging someone's heart and motives. It does not negate the many commands of Scripture to righteously judge someone's fruits, actions, and doctrine against the pure and holy standard of God's Word. Perhaps if 0bama himself wasn't so vague and incoherent in defense of his "committed faith," and actually came across more confident in his on-again/off-again "Christian" faith, more Americans would believe him to be sincerely Christian and not Muslim, or "Muslim-leaning." After all, real Christians don't make a concerted public effort to mock Christianity and the Bible while going out of their way to promote and advance false religions (and nebulous quasi-religious political systems, like Islam, that mix a little bit of religion with a large amount of political ambitions and violence).
