I fully respect George W. Bush as the chief executive of our nation. I respect our President. On some major matters of policy I’ve agreed with him more than some of his political rivals. I’ve got no problem saying I voted for him in 2004, given the field of candidates in that race. You probably could search this blog and find many posts I’ve made in support of President Bush regarding many political matters, although at times I’ve spoken in opposition. Still overall I’ve usually been more in agreement with him politically than in opposition.
But never mind the politics, I just wanted to note that I honestly respect our President for the position God ordained him to hold for the moment. I also wanted to make clear I’m not some “anti-Bush” Moonbat, that has been seeking his impeachment. Just the same, I can’t go claiming someone is a Christian when their own fruit proves them not to be and I’m not talking about policy matters, but matters of personal theology.
I’ve pointed out previously in a post titled Why President George W. Bush Honestly is Not a Christian details of why I can’t see Bush as my brother in Christ. Our President, yes, but not a brother in Christ.
Now my brother in Christ Walter Kambulow has passed me an article you should read in full titled He?d rather talk about sex than God. The article’s subheading is the following:
George Bush built his career on his faith. But his key religious adviser tells of a different man behind the born-again image
Now there is a whole lot I could say about the article in point by point analysis here, but I just think you need to read it in full yourself. Because without all the lengthy analysis from me, the article should help any true saint see that the point of Bush not being a Christian is greatly reinforced by that article. He is a man who has found a means to control some of his personal issues. He is not a man who desires to spread the message of salvation in Jesus Christ as the ONLY means for salvation. And for you who were told that Bush took some time from political pandering, to speak to some little child about Christ and walked the child though the formulaic “sinners prayer”, that story is a big hoax. Bush is a man who might like to read the Bible at times, but he is not a man who is expressing the truth found in scripture. He is a man who plays on religious jargon for political gain.
Regarding Bush’s Bible reading, it seems to vary depending on the year.

So he’s reading scripture every other year. It just seems like he now finds the Bible to be nice reading material, rather than the Word of God and essential to daily spiritual growth. I mean if he said this rotation was an every other day matter I might not take notice, but every other year. No wonder Bush speaks the language of secular humanism when actually asked how one can reach God. I mean if someone told me to try NOT reading my Bible for a year and just listening to some preacher I feel is good to listen too, I’d laugh in their face!
Oh well, Bush is not the first to play off religion for political gain and he certainly won’t be the last.
