What do we do with George W. Bush? As time goes on I am less and less certain about exactly what this man is. I am grateful for some of the moral stands he has made in the course of his presidency but I have real questions about his faith. I know, who am I to question anyone’s faith? I question my own at times so why can’t I question yours?
From a news story about Bush’s recent ABC “Nightline” interview:
Asked about creation and evolution, Bush said, "I think you can have both. I think evolution can _ you’re getting me way out of my lane here. I’m just a simple president. But it’s, I think that God created the earth, created the world; I think the creation of the world is so mysterious it requires something as large as an almighty and I don’t think it’s incompatible with the scientific proof that there is evolution."
Interviewer Cynthia McFadden asked Bush if the Bible was literally true.
"You know. Probably not … No, I’m not a literalist, but I think you can learn a lot from it, but I do think that the New Testament for example is … has got … You know, the important lesson is ‘God sent a son,’" Bush said.
If the Bible isn’t literally true than how are you certain and on what basis do you declare that God sent His Son (Bush said “a” son)? For what reason did God send Him? If the Bible isn’t literally true then we cannot state that it was to atone for sin. By the way, is there even such a thing as sin? If the Bible isn’t literally true is there a heaven and hell? What good are prophecies?
George, is this really where you are? I would rather George Bush (or any man) tell me that he is an atheist who denies God then for a man to declare publicly that he is a Christian and then deny the literal truth of God’s Word. This is the worst position a man can be in.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”
