I'LL TAKE THE WORD OF GOD OVER THE WORD OF G.W. BUSH
By Chuck Baldwin

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 doctrine.
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
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 2:22,23)
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
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!
