I'll Take The "Word Of God" Over The Word Of President G.W. Bush

While in London, England last week, President Bush stood beside
Prime Minister Tony Blair and said that Christians and Muslims
worship the same God. This is the latest example of how willing
Bush seems to be to compromise fundamental principle in order to
appear politically-correct. In so doing, he has both impugned the
God of the Bible and revealed deep ignorance of Christian
Historic Christian belief has always held that the Creator-God was
manifested in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. The New
Testament plainly teaches that the only way anyone can come to
God or know God is through His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus, Himself,
declared, "I and the Father are one." He also said, "He that hath
seen me hath seen the Father."
In warning Christians against false doctrines and false prophets,
the Apostle John wrote, "Who is a liar, but he that denieth that
Jesus is the Christ? He is anti-christ, that denieth the Father and the
Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:
[but] he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also." (I John
By denying the deity of Jesus Christ, the Muslim faith is found to
be nothing more than another form of paganism. In fact, when
Mohammed first formed Islam, there were over 300 pagan gods
prevalent in that part of the world. Mohammed selected the moon
god Allah and declared it to be God. This is why the crescent moon
is the symbol of Islam. Yes, friends, Allah is nothing more than the
ancient, pagan moon god.
Does President Bush really believe that the Lord Jesus Christ and
the ancient moon god Allah are actually one and the same?
Apparently he does. If that is the case, does he believe that other
pagan gods, of which there are thousands, are also co-equal to the
Son of God? I guess the real question then becomes, "Does G.W.
Bush remotely understand what it means to be a Christian?" His
statements lead me to believe he does not.
For 2,000 years, Christians have accepted Jesus' declaration, "I am
the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but
by me." (John 14:6) as being the absolute truth. The early Apostles
and disciples of Christ suffered horrible deaths proclaiming this
simple and straightforward message.
If President Bush is right, and Christians and Muslims worship the
same god, then the Holy Scriptures are wrong, and the Apostles
and early Church fathers were also horribly mistaken and died
silly, unnecessary deaths! If, on the other hand, the Scriptures,
including Christ's own words, are right, and the Apostles and early
Church fathers died for the truth, then President Bush is found to
be in serious and egregious error!
As for me, I'll take the Word of God over the word of G.W. Bush!
