Oprah Winfrey: New Age Heretic

Posted by soldierservant on May 19, 2008

Last night Michael Savage mentioned this, comparing it to the Waco
incident under Clinton. This proves how much alike him and Bush are. He
said that this is just a distraction to cover up all the corruption
going on like the Bear Sterns scandal. When I start hearing about this
on the news that is exactly what was going through my mind, like another
Waco all over again. I know polygamy is wrong, but why is the government
so concerned about this when much worse is going on? We know the answer
to that. I also caught some of Oprah talking abot the NEW EARTH book she
is pushing. It is a bunch of newage psychobabble. It does mention
Christ, a false one, that is. They had all these testimonials praising
this book. Both christians and catholics said that it had opened their
eyes about Jesus. They said that it wasn’t about his mission to
sacrifice himself on the cross but only as teaching a way of life. Well
of course that is in it in part but to deny the cross is flat out
satanic. There was one that was a cancer survivor that was a christian
or just religious and she said that this book has opened her eyes to the
truth of Jesus. Then she was quite enthused when she talked about going
to Vegas (SIN CITY). Well we see the fruits of this for what it is. This
book does not go into what Christ really taught but came up with
nonsense phrases like “Christ-consciousness,” which is not in the bible.
Oprah claims to be a christian but is just another satanic imposter
doomed to the blackest darkness that is reserved for all false teachers.
Her fruits are so obvious. She has transexuals on her show and pushes
all kinds of filth like that. Also that this book is so widely accepted
is proof of how false it is. You can tell just by the mere terminology.
Whenever most talk about biggotry and tolerance or not being judgmental
they are talking about all religions being equal. These liars are not
following Christ because they would know that he said that he was the
only way. According to the world we are judgmental for following the
true Christ and obeying his word and believing him when he said that he
is the only way. What I can’t understand is why these hypocrites even
pretend to follow Christ when they ignore all his teachings and call him
a liar. What will these fools say when they stand before ALMIGHTY GOD?
You think they will lie to his face and say that he is intolerant? I
don’t think so. The will mourn at his return. But yes He is intolerant,
intolerant of sin. So if you don’t take up your cross to follow him then
you are not worthy of him and tolerance of sin will condemn your soul to
hell. So yes in order to be saved you better be intolerant. When God
restores righteousess he will first purge the earth of all the effects
of sin. In 2 Peter chapter 3 talks about the heavens melting with
fervent heat. This proves how much God hates sin. Those who do not hate
sin are not of God. They do not love him but hate him. Another one of
the testimonials came from a soldier in Iraq and Oprah and her audience
basically was bowing down to him like the catholics that venerate their
saints. All this idolatry and lies proves what direction we are headed
in. It will not get any better if all this nonsense keeps up. Also other
stuff from that book spouted a bunch of psychology nonsense that sounded
like it was written by a moron. You know neither of us have anyhing to
worry about because we are so sick of all this crap and prove that we do
not love this world. You are right about Oprah. She is as false as false
can be. She had an actress on there that was in a common law marriage,
which is not a marriage at all but living together, and Oprah praised
that. That proves that she does not know the bible and stands for
everything that is against it. This proves any fool can claim to be
christian. The way things are going I think Satan probably claims to be
a christian. Those who buy into all this garbage like Oprah, New Earth,
Bush, warmongering churches, and all other corrupt ways of this world
have much to worry about because those as such are not really saved
according to the bible. This is the broad path that leads to

Why Are Lies Being Told Against Ron Paul?

Posted by soldierservant on November 15, 2007

There are lies going around about Ron Paul.I heard a lockstepping show
that the host said that Ron Paul was anti-israel.When I heard this it
didn’t ring quite true to me because I could hear the divisive tone of
this host.This host is a warmongering idolater.This hypocrite puts down
what he calls a one issue candidate while he himself is all about one
issue,WAR.I will not even dignify this host by naming him because he is
a nobody with no following.All I’ll say is that he is a Rush wannabe.The
ones who claim they support Israel are liars,like Hillary Clinton.We all
know how the Clintons hate Israel.This host accused Ron Paul because he
didn’t believe in funding them.But he also believes in not funding any
other country either.What this article here seems to bring up that our
monetary help of Israel is just a tactic of manipulation.It is no wonder
that Ehud Olmert is eating out of Bush’s hands.THIS IS BLACKMAIL!So
actually those who say they are supporting Israel are the very same ones
against them because they seek to manipulate them.If funding Israel was
done out of all honesty then I would be for it.But it is obvious by the
way our government treats Israel that they do not have the best
intentons.Those who try to justify this blackmail by pretending it is
benign help saying that this is blessing them is flat out lying.It will
be much worse for those who give out of a duplicitous heart then one who
doesn’t give at all. I am sick of all these bushbot liars that pretend
Bush is supportiing Israel when his fruits prove the opposite.These
liars have nothing to say about Bush dividing up Israel or that he has
given to their enemies.God will try every impure motive.ALL YOU BUSHBOTS

More New Agers Pretending To Be Christian!

Posted by soldierservant on November 15, 2007

This is the email I got from this newage organizaton that pretends to be
christian.It is this one world religion crap.Just like their name
implies,ONE.This also shows the folly of their objections.They claim
they are going to end poverty.This shows you the ignorance and arrogance
against Jesus’ words about the poor you will always have with you.They
think they can get away with contradicting Jesus.But besides them not
having His blessing this goal is impossible the way things are now.Every
government in the world is greedy and corrupt and they will alway steal
from their people.This is why all the money being thrown at all these
third world countries never ends up in the people’s hands and are still
starving.Those who claim they are ending poverty are lies from the pits
of hell.This isn’t happening and won’t ever happen.The only time when
poverty will be eliminated is when christ returns.These fools think they
can unite all the religions in order to end poverty.One would have to be
pretty naive to believe such mindless mush.I bet all these newage
churches like my brother’s probably go in for this crap.It would be a
good idea to warn through the blogs against these newage
organizations.So what if they could end poverty but yet let all the
souls go to hell.That proves how shallow this is.Of course Jesus told us
to give to the poor but he made no indication that we would be able to
end poverty.When I am able to give it sure won’t be through these
frauds.They are absolute liars when they deny that Jesus is the only


Dear Terry,

As ONE members, we care. We care about the child orphaned by HIV/AIDS. We care about the village that lacks access to clean water. And we care about the millions of people throughout the developing world who will go to bed hungry tonight. For many of us, that caring is borne of our faith.

Last week, I asked students to take action on our challenge: to make poverty history. Now, ONE is reaching out to people of faith and engaging traditions that say that when you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness. (Isaiah 58:10)

All of the major faiths believe that God is with the poor and that our humanity is reflected in what we do for the world’s most vulnerable people.

It is with that belief in mind that I invite you to be a leader in ONE Sabbath, our new initiative to bring the spirit of our churches, synagogues, mosques and temples to the movement to make poverty history.

During the weekend of November 23rd—25th, congregations that sign up to be a part of ONE Sabbath will host special services focused on a simple question “What can we do, as congregations and as believers, to bring healing to a world in which 28,000 children die every day from poverty-related causes?”

Sign up today to download the ONE Sabbath overview and, during the next six weeks, we will provide you with tools to build awareness and take action in your community of faith.

By taking part in ONE Sabbath, your congregation will be out in front, exploring how people of faith can bring compassion and leadership to the fight to end global poverty.

Faith has always been a driving force behind social change and that continues today. ONE is proud to partner with religious organizations and denominations that are already tackling issues like hunger, debt relief and HIV/AIDS. Visit our faith resource page to learn more about what your faith community is already doing to fight global poverty and how you can make that a part of ONE Sabbath.

The Torah instructs Jews to care for the poor through acts of compassion and loving kindness. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus teaches that what is done unto the poor is done unto Him. Zakat, serving the suffering of humanity, is one of the five pillars of Islam. We can all live our beliefs by standing up for those living in extreme poverty.

And this fall’s ONE Sabbath is only the beginning. In the next year, we’ll build on this weekend of hope and activism to work with people of faith and houses of worship across the country to elevate the issue of global poverty in 2008—when America will go to the polls and vote for new leaders and policies—and beyond.

ONE Sabbath starts one congregation and one service at a time—but I know that with a clear call from ONE members like you, we can bring the strength of faith and the power of belief to bear in this movement and truly become a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat. (Isaiah 25:4)

Thank you for all you do,

Susan McCue,

P.S. Make sure to visit our online ONE Sabbath page to download information on ONE Sabbath and take a moment to share with us how your religious community is taking action in the fight against global poverty.

This is a great site, Cutting Edge. It exposes the freemasons as the ones who are all behind this one world religion that Bush is pushing.This is further proof of his involvement in the SKULL & BONES, a masonic secret society, because he is all for the same things. Every single day is more proof of Bush’s abounding wickedness,not just himself but also his
locksteppers too, like Ann Coulter. \Bush and Romney are also
involved in more corporate corruption over the 3com deal.I hear that it
is worse than the Dubai Ports deal.The layers of the onion are peeling
away.All one can see of Bush is total darkness.That is why those who
continue to cling to him are bringing continually worse judgment on
themselves because there is no more excuses.There is absolutely nothing
redeeming about him at all.

Bush has also signed the UN’s treaty of the sea or something like that. This was even legislation that Reagan refused to sign. But Reagan still had guilt because there was
abortion under him though it may have been less than other presidents. They will all have to give an account before God.

Christians Should Support Constitutional Government

I was honored to speak before the National Committee of the
Constitution Party on Thursday, October 25, 2007 in Council Bluffs,
Iowa. Today’s column is a condensed version of that address.

Daniel Webster is regarded as perhaps America’s most notable jurist.
Webster said, “Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the
Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has
happened once in 6000 years may not happen again. Hold on to the
Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will
be anarchy throughout the world.”

He also said, “The hand that destroys the Constitution rends our Union
asunder forever.”

Please remember that this is the same Daniel Webster who said: “If we
abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on
prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its
instruction and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe
may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”

You see how Daniel Webster (like most of America’s founders) was a man
with deeply-held Christian convictions. He believed the Bible. He was
a devout believer. And he found no contradictions between the Bible
and the Constitution. In fact, he believed (as do I) that the
Constitution is the best safeguard for Christian liberty that we have.

When any constitutionally-elected officeholder assumes office, he or
she promises to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the
United States. They don’t promise to represent “conservative
principles” or to be “loyal to a political party,” etc. The
Constitution is the contract between “We the people” and our civil

When you or I hire an electrician or plumber to do work for us, we
sign a contract for specific work to be done. And at the end of the
day, I really don’t care whether he claims to be a Christian or where
he goes to church or how religious he claims to be. When the work is
finished, I want my lights to turn on and my toilet to flush. In other
words, I expect him to live up to his contract.

When we elect people to public office, we should expect only one
thing: that they uphold their contract to preserve, protect, and
defend the Constitution of the United States.

You see, adherence to the Constitution protects our freedom of speech
and assembly; our freedom of worship; our right to keep and bear arms;
our right to a trial by jury; the right to be secure in our own homes
against police overreach; our right to witness for Christ in public,
as a Christian; the right to own property; the right to not be
deprived of life or property without due process of law; the right to
face our accusers, and the right to keep government local and limited.

In fact, keeping government local and limited is the cornerstone
doctrine of American government. In most nations, the federal
government holds power over virtually every area of the lives of its
people. Not so in America–at least, not in the America that was
originally crafted.

Most of the problems that we are now dealing with socially,
culturally, financially, etc., stem from America abandoning the basic
founding principle that “the government that governs least governs

Accordingly, America’s commitment to life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness has been (and is being) systematically stripped from us–not
by State legislatures, but mostly by agencies of the federal

Consider how it has been federal courts that have banned prayer in
school, and legalized abortion and homosexual marriage. Even in the
liberal State of Massachusetts it was the courts (along with a
compliant liberal governor, Mitt Romney), that forced acceptance of
homosexual marriage upon the people.

Today, we have federal departments and agencies almost without number.
We have the Department of Education, the Department of Transportation,
the Department of Energy, the Department of Homeland Security, the
Department of Agriculture, the Department of Commerce, the Department
of Health and Human Services, the Department of Housing and Urban
Development, the Department of Justice, the Department of Labor, the
Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, the Department of
the Interior, etc., etc., ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

Each and every federal department and agency, in its own way and for
its own purposes, to one degree or another, ignores or violates
constitutional government. And as a result, they contravene and strip
away the rights and freedoms of States collectively and of the people

The result of this gargantuan federal monstrosity includes
back-breaking taxation and over-regulation, which fuel inflation,
stymie productivity, and invite foreign influence.

One only has to observe how President Bush is now appealing to the
U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of an illegal Mexican alien who raped and
murdered two Houston, Texas teenagers, arguing that his death sentence
should be overturned and that he should be given a new trial. Bush’s
reason? Illegal aliens should be under the authority of a UN “world
court” instead of the State of Texas’ authority.

Observe how Bush is pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens. See how he
has merged these United States into a regional government by signing
onto the Security and Prosperity Partnership agreement with Canada and
Mexico. See how he is pushing for a NAFTA superhighway. Observe how he
and other globalists are planning to replace the U.S. dollar with a
regional, multinational currency called the Amero.

Furthermore, virtually every administration for the last fifty years
has engaged in an aggressive nation-building foreign policy. (Can
anyone say, “Iraq”?) In addition, in contradiction to the stated
warnings of our nation’s founders, they have actively pursued
entangling alliances with unfriendly governments. The past three
administrations in particular have deliberately steered our country
down a path of multiculturalism, globalism, and elitism.

Pastors, especially, should fight for constitutional government! Do
you preachers really think that there will be any room for the
old-time Gospel when the globalists and elitists in the federal
government have finished with their diabolical schemes?

Already, President Bush repeatedly tells us that Christians and
Muslims–and all other religions–worship the same God. How long will
you preachers be able to preach the narrow message of salvation, that
Christ is the only way to Heaven, when Bush’s doctrine of Universalism
is the accepted religion? And make no mistake about it: Universalism
is the national religion of the United Nations, the European Union,
and the emerging North American Union.

The Department of Homeland Security is already holding seminars for
pastors, instructing them how they should ask their congregants to
turn in their firearms in the event that the President declares a
national emergency. How many of you pastors are prepared to become an
instrument of gun confiscation for global government?

This is what happens when we abandon constitutional government.

It is not enough that a candidate says he is a Christian. Every
politician I know, or have ever known, says they are a Christian–at
least every four years. It is not enough that a candidate carries a
giant-print Bible to church. It is not enough that he says he prays or
says that “faith is important.”

The truth is, if the candidate is a sincere Christian, he or she will
all the more readily obey his or her oath to preserve, protect, and
defend the Constitution of the United States. After all, does not our
Lord tell us that our yea is to be yea and our nay is to be nay? In
other words, genuine believers are to be true to their word. How,
then, could a true Christian make a promise before God and the
American people to preserve, protect, and defend the U.S. Constitution
and then turn around and ignore that promise? He couldn’t.

Therefore, a professing believer who is elected to public office and
then ignores his or her promise to the Constitution proves that he or
she is not a true Christian but a phony who only uses a religious
testimony to dupe Christians.

Take the issue of abortion, for example. Ron Paul proposed the
“Sanctity of Life Act of 2005” (and 2007), which would require that
“human life shall be deemed to exist from conception, without regard
to race, sex, age, health, defect, or condition of dependency”

The bill also provides that “the Congress recognizes that each State
has the authority to protect unborn children…” And that “the Supreme
Court shall not have jurisdiction to review …the performance of
abortions; or the provision of public expenses of funds, facilities,
personnel, or other assistance for the performance of abortions.”

In other words, Dr. Paul understands that Article. III. Section. 2. of
the U.S. Constitution gives to Congress the authority to rein in an
abusive judiciary and take the issue of abortion (or homosexual
marriage or fill in the blank) out from under the jurisdiction of the
Court. This means that should Congressman Paul’s bill become law,
abortion on demand ends and Roe v Wade is overturned.

So, please tell me why, after having control of both houses of
Congress and the White House for six years, did these “pro-life”
Republicans in Congress and a “pro-life” President not pass Dr.
Paul’s bill?  Why? Because they really do not give a hoot about
abortion, but only use pro-life rhetoric to dupe conservative voters.

In addition, those conservatives who have followed President Bush’s
preemptive war doctrine are the ones who have abandoned historical
conservative principles. Before G.W. Bush changed the landscape,
conservatives–especially Christian conservatives–mostly subscribed
to Augustine’s “just war” theory regarding accepted protocols for the
conduct of war. Today, however, many professing conservatives have
foolishly followed Bush’s “preemptive war” theory, which, before now,
was practiced mostly by pagan emperors. As Christians, however, we
should still subscribe to “just war.”

In concert with “just war” philosophy (not to mention American
history), Christians should agree with Ron Paul’s approach to dealing
with terrorists. He authored H.R. 3076, the September 11 Marque and
Reprisal Act of 2001. According to Paul, “A letter of marque and
reprisal is a constitutional tool specifically designed to give the
president the authority to respond with appropriate force to those
non-state actors who wage war against the United States while limiting
his authority to only those responsible for the atrocities of that
day. Such a limited authorization is consistent with the doctrine of
just war and the practical aim of keeping Americans safe while
minimizing the costs in blood and treasure of waging such an

This is precisely what President Thomas Jefferson did when America’s
ships were confronted with Barbary pirates on the high seas.

If the United States government had listened to Ron Paul, we would not
have lost nearly 4,000 American soldiers and Marines, spent over $1
trillion, and gotten bogged down in an endless civil war from which
there is no equitable extraction. Furthermore, had we listened to Dr.
Paul, Osama bin Laden would no doubt be dead, as would most of his
al-Qaeda operatives, and we would be less vulnerable to future
terrorist attacks, instead of being more vulnerable, which is the case

How can anyone say with a straight face that they are fighting a war
on terrorism while at the same time doing absolutely nothing to secure
our borders and ports?!

I submit that every true American, especially conservative Christians,
should enthusiastically support constitutional government. I further
believe that a President who would take his oath to the Constitution
seriously would bring a new birth of freedom to America the likes of
which has not been seen since 1776. May God give us such a man!

Do Christians And Muslims Worship The Same God?

Posted by soldierservant on November 10, 2007

This column is archived at

According to President George W. Bush, Christians and Muslims worship
the same god. In fact, President Bush believes that EVERYONE worships
the same god, whether they be Christians, Muslims, or people of any
other religion. Don’t take my word for it: Mr. Bush made these
statements himself. I reported President Bush’s remarks in this column
just recently.



For the sake of those who missed it, ABC’s Charles Gibson recently
interviewed President George W. Bush. Here is a verbatim transcript
from that interview:

Q.  “Do we all worship the same God, Christian and Muslim?”
A.  “I think we do. We have different routes of getting to the

Q.  “Do Christians and non-Christians and Muslims go to heaven in your
A.  “Yes they do. We have different routes of getting there.”

Then, just a few days ago, President Bush, in an interview with Al
Arabiya television, said, “I believe in an almighty God, and I believe
that all the world, whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other
religion, prays to the same God.” In the same interview he said, “I
believe there is a universal God. I believe the God that the Muslim
prays to is the same God that I pray to. After all, we all came from
Abraham. I believe in that universality.”

Obviously, this is not the confession of a Christian. It is the
confession of a universalist.

Bush’s beliefs remind me of the book co-authored by Muhammad Ali,
Thomas Houser, and Richard Dominick entitled Healing: A Journal of
Tolerance and Understanding. In this book Muhammad Ali writes, “If
you’re a good Muslim, if you’re a good Christian, if you’re a good
Jew: it doesn’t matter what religion you are, if you’re a good person,
you’ll receive God’s blessing.” (p. 3)

“The great monotheistic religions of the world all worship the same
God. They just call him by different names.” (p. 9)

“All people serve the same God. We just serve Him in different ways.”
(p. 32)

By definition, both President Bush and Muhammad Ali believe the same
thing: they are both universalists.

Baker’s Dictionary of Theology, page 539, defines Universalism this
way: “Universalism is the doctrine of ultimate well-being of every
person. The doctrine has a pagan and a Christian form. According to
the former, all will ultimately be happy because all are, by nature,
the creatures and children of God. The universalistic heresy (it is
rejected by the general tradition of the church–Eastern, Roman and
Protestant) in Christianity teaches that although all of the human
creatures of God have fallen into sin and are lost, all will be saved
through the universal redemption of Christ.”

President Bush’s infatuation with universalism is tied to his
commitment to universal (or global) government. You see, Bush is part
of an elitist cabal that is attempting to carve out an international
New World Order. And in order for global (or even regional) government
to take shape, there must be an acceptance of global religion. In
other words, universalism is the religion of the New World Order, the
United Nations, and all those who desire global government.

To anyone who understands the true message of Christ, however, the
doctrine of universalism is anathema.

Every true believer in Christ understands Him to be the God-Man, the
Creator-God become flesh (John 1:1-3, 14). We understand that Jesus is
the only way to Heaven (John 14:6). We take Christ at His word, when
He told us, “I and my Father are one.” (John 10:30) We believe Him
when He said, “[H]e that hath seen me hath seen the Father.” (John
14:9) We understand that Jesus is the “fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
(Col. 2:9)

No real Christian could say that every religion worships the same God
or that everyone is going to Heaven, regardless of who or what they
worship. Only a universalist could make such a statement. I say it
again, President Bush is a universalist.

Furthermore, because President Bush has convinced everyone that he is
a Christian, his erroneous remarks portend much evil. Why? Because
many professing Christians will take the word of an apostate President
over the word of their own pastors or even the very Word of God. This
is not to mention the damage he has done to the testimony of Christ in
giving unbelievers a false sense of security in worshipping false gods
and believing false doctrines.

Accordingly, I invite readers to view a Sunday address that I just
recently delivered to the people of my church. The title of the
address is, “Do Christians and Muslims Worship The Same God?” There is
no charge to watch or download this video sermon. One may even
download the message as an MP3 file for use in one’s IPOD. In fact, I
pray that God will give the message wide distribution. It just might
be the most important message I have ever delivered. See the video
sermon here:

After listening to this message, a visitor told one of our ushers on
the way out, “I came here believing in universalism. But now I am a
Christian.” I am afraid that there are many tens of thousands of
people attending our churches all across America today who are not
Christians, but have followed President Bush into the false religion
of universalism.  Please watch the video sermon.

Plus, if anyone would like to have DVD copies made of this video
sermon, we might be able to make these available as well. If you are
interested in having a DVD of this sermon, please write

George Bush Says All Religions Pray To Same God!

Posted by soldierservant on October 17, 2007

Update: this was an official White House Press Release! 

Praise God that there are finally some Christians that are speaking out about Bush’s evil like in this blog and others.I guess most churches will still cater to this antichrist but I hope most of them will get shut down or something. Hopefully true churches will emerge that are not sold on this antichrist. I had gotten so discouraged because of the mainstream church that it was looking hopeless. Seeing stuff like this is so encouraging to see that finally christians are waking up and that no Christian can have any more excuses for Bush.

Original link.

Bush: All religions pray to ‘same God’
‘That’s what I believe. I believe Islam is a great religion that preaches peace’

President George Bush has repeated his belief all religions, “whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God” – an assertion that caused outrage among evangelical leaders when he said it in November 2003.

Bush made the statement Friday in an interview with Al Arabiya reporter Elie Nakouzi.

Al Arabiya is Al Jazeerah’s top competitor in the Mideast.

As the president and Nakouzi walked from the Oval Office to the Map Room in the White House residence, Nazouki asked, “But I want to tell you – and I hope this doesn’t bother you at all – that in the Islamic world they think that President Bush is an enemy of Islam – that he wants to destroy their religion, what they believe in. Is that in any way true, Mr. President?”

“No, it’s not,” said Bush. “I’ve heard that, and it just shows [sic] to show a couple of things: One, that the radicals have done a good job of propagandizing. In other words, they’ve spread the word that this really isn’t peaceful people versus radical people or terrorists, this is really about the America not liking Islam.

“Well, first of all, I believe in an Almighty God, and I believe that all the world, whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God. That’s what I believe. I believe that Islam is a great religion that preaches peace. And I believe people who murder the innocent to achieve political objectives aren’t religious people, whether they be a Christian who does that – we had a person blow up our – blow up a federal building in Oklahoma City who professed to be a Christian, but that’s not a Christian act to kill innocent people.

“And I just simply don’t subscribe to the idea that murdering innocent men, women and children – particularly Muslim men, women and children in the Middle East – is an act of somebody who is a religious person.

Friday’s statement echoes one made by Bush in November 2003 during a joint press conference with then-Prime Minister Tony Blair. A reporter noted Bush had frequently expressed the view that freedom is a gift from “the Almighty,” but questioned whether Bush believes “Muslims worship the same Almighty” as the president and other Christians do.

“I do say that freedom is the Almighty’s gift to every person. I also condition it by saying freedom is not America’s gift to the world,” Bush replied. “It’s much greater than that, of course. And I believe we worship the same god,” reported the London Telegraph.

Reaction from U.S. evangelical leaders was swift and strong.

Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation’s largest Protestant denomination, was quoted in the Baptist Press as saying the president “is simply mistaken.”

According to a Washington Post account, Land said in an interview: “We should always remember that he is commander in chief, not theologian in chief. The Bible is clear on this: The one and true god is Jehovah, and his only begotten son is Jesus Christ.”

The Rev. Ted Haggard, then-president of the National Association of Evangelicals, also contradicted the president in a press statement. “The Christian God encourages freedom, love, forgiveness, prosperity and health,” said Haggard. “The Muslim god appears to value the opposite. The personalities of each god are evident in the cultures, civilizations and dispositions of the peoples that serve them. Muhammad’s central message was submission; Jesus’ central message was love. They seem to be very different personalities.”

In November 2006, Haggard was forced to resign from NAE following allegations of drug use and sex with a homosexual prostitute.

Gary Bauer, former presidential candidate and president of American Values, said Bush’s comment was “not helpful to the president. Since everybody agrees he’s not a theologian, he would be much better advised to punt when he gets that kind of question.”

In Friday’s interview with Al Arabiya, Bush emphasized his outreach to Muslims.

“We are having an Iftaar dinner tonight – I say, ‘we’ – it’s my wife and I,” Bush told Nakouzi. “This is the seventh one in the seven years I’ve been the president. It gives me a chance to say ‘Ramadan Mubarak.’ The reason I do this is I want people to understand about my country. In other words, I hope this message gets out of America. I want people to understand that one of the great freedoms in America is the right for people to worship any way they see fit. If you’re a Muslim, an agnostic, a Christian, a Jew, a Hindu, you’re equally American.

“And the value – the most valuable thing I think about America is that – particularly if you’re a religious person – you can be free to worship, and it’s your choice to make. It’s not the state’s choice, and you shouldn’t be intimidated after you’ve made your choice. And that’s a right that I jealously guard.

“Secondly, I want American citizens to see me hosting an Iftaar dinner.”

“That’s a strong message for the Americans,” said Nakouzi.

Last year, WND reported criticism of Bush from Wafa Sultan, a native of Syria, who said the president was empowering terrorist leaders whose ultimate aim is for Islamic law to govern the world by proclaiming Islam a “religion of peace.”

“I believe he undermines our credibility by saying that,” said Sultan. “We came from Islam, and we know what kind of religion Islam is.”
