Blind Spots in our Faith

Over the past few weeks, I believe God has shown me that all Christians (including I) have blind spots in our faith, areas where we are unable to see how some of the things we believe, say, or do are completely contradictory with our faith. Here's a rather obvious one in our pro-abortion (and even pro-partial birth abortion) commander-in-chief.

At the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton Hotel this morning, President Obama caught pro-life advocates off guard when he said God wouldn't condone taking the life of an innocent human being.
Obama spoke of the need for people of all religions to end persecution "in the name of perceived righteousness."
"[F]ar too often, we see faith wielded as a tool to divide us from one another as an excuse for prejudice and intolerance," he said. "There's no doubt that the very nature of faith means that some of our beliefs will never be the same."
The president said people from various religions all have different views about how humans came to be on Earth and "where we are going next."
Obama attempted to draw similarities among the world's diverse religions.
"No matter what we choose to believe, let us remember that there is no religion whose central tenant is hate," he said.
"There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being. This much we know."

All I can say
