In short, Mansfield believes that President Obama’s eclectic, “big-tent” type of faith is exactly what the country ordered.
Americans are less likely to believe that any single faith is the only path to God, and they are more likely to believe that there is truth in religions differing from their own than at any prior time in the nation’s history.
As someone who is devoted to helping people properly understand Biblical teachings, there is nothing more frustrating than the post-modern, pluralistic, “all truth is relative” mindset held by so many today, including our President.
These “new revelations” might come from a non-Christian religion as well, for Obama does not believe his Christianity is the final word. “I am rooted in the Christian tradition,” he has said. But “I believe there are many paths to the same place and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”
