The only feasible explanation is that many have fallen into a form of idolatry. When a sinful, fallible human being can do no wrong in the eyes of believers, something has gone awry.
As many of you already know, Bush was on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Oct. 26. Singing the praises of Islam, he completely undermined the gospel by denying that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. During the interview with the president, GMA co-host Charles Gibson asked, "Do we all worship the same God, Christian and Muslim?" Bush replied, "I think we do. We have different routes of getting to the Almighty." Gibson then queried, "Do Christians and non-Christians and Muslims go to heaven in your mind?" Again, the president, ignoring scripture, stated unequivocally, "Yes, they do. We have different routes of getting there."
Recalling the actions of the Apostle Peter on the eve of Christ's crucifixion, one could have chalked up Bush's denial of the truth to his fear of personal injury or electoral repercussions. But this was by no means an isolated incident. Bush has been kowtowing to Islam for over three years.
The only thing I can't understand is the willingness of Christians to go along with this great deception. It's one thing to agree with the president's politics; it's quite another to hold him up as a Christ-like example. A man of faith? Perhaps, but not a faith I'm familiar with.
