Obama’s Bible study: the Gospel of Mark


  1. Ah, Obama is so much like Jesus, isn’t he. He’s alone in his suffering as president just like Jesus was alone in his suffering as Messiah. Such a great comparsion…(this is me being sarcastic).

  2. Wait, are you criticizing (albeit sarcastically) a particular part of the article? And are you saying we can’t draw strength from Christ to deal with our(albeit lesser) pain by acknowledging that he experienced similar hardships?

    I honestly don’t know what to do with that.

  3. David, I’m assuming you’re criticising the poor article and not Obama?

    Because I think you’re right… that was just shoddy work. It looks as though the reporter tried to read into the Mark study a bunch of stuff that wasn’t there, as if Obama specifically is studying Mark for the purpose of knowing how a Messiah figure is supposed to cope with the stress of everyday life.

    But I don’t think there’s anything to critique about Obama DOING a bible study… I mean, that’s probably a better-than-nothing circumstance, right?

  4. sorry, brothers. I seem to have responded in haste without careful articulation of my point. Clearly I am not opposed to Obama doing Bible study, that’s just ridiculous to oppose. I was taking a shot at the bizzarre angle the article took.
