Based on his statements and fruit: 'Is President Bush A False Convert?'

Dear friends,

Mark Cahill is a well-respected Bible teacher in the US. God is using him and his team to be training people how to effectively share the good news of the gospel, the way Jesus did. President Bush has been making making some interesting statement for some times. Recently President Bush made another similar statement in an interview again just last week, and in this gracious yet factual Bible study, Mark Cahill examines that phrase based on God's Word.

Is President Bush A False Convert?

In an article on the website of WorldNetDaily, I will place the link below, they quoted from an interview President Bush did with a reporter from an Islamic news service. During that interview, President Bush said:

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.

President Bush states that all people of faith pray to the same God. Well let’s see if that is true. The Bible says:

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" (1 Timothy 2:5)

"Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also." (1 John 2:23)

"And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." (1 John 5:11,12)

"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:18)

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." (John 3:36)

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)

Well if I have this correct, there is only one way to get to the Father and that is through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. No other way. So in order for all of us to be praying to the same God, all of the people of different religions would have to believe the same way. So when, not if because you are supposed to be sharing your faith as a Christian, you talk to Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Catholics, Sikhs, New Agers, etc. do they tell you that Jesus is the only way to get to the Father? Let me tell you from experience, no they do not. Why? Because they do not believe Jesus is the only way. It is mainly because they pray to a different god and do not believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ. Can a true born again believer really believe that we all pray to the same God and that there are multiple ways to be right with that God? Since we know that is not true when you read the Bible, I wonder if there is another reason. Let’s look to the Bible and see:

"How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?" (John 5:44)

"For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." (Galatians 1:10)

"Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God." (John 12:42,43)

So which is it folks? Do you love the praise of men or do you love the praise of God? Are you seeking pats on the back from men or are you seeking to glorify the Lord no matter what the cost? Are you worried what friends might say about you, bosses might say about you, newspapers and TV might say about you, or are you much more focused and concerned what the God of the Bible will say about you on Judgment Day?

Later on in the article President Bush stated that he was hosting an Iftar dinner. It is the seventh one he has hosted in the seven years he has been in the White House. An Iftar dinner is the evening meal that breaks the daily fast that Muslims perform during the month of Ramadan.

You can go ahead and put me in the category of people who will not be hosting an Iftar dinner this year or any other year. I would be more than happy to go to one if I am invited, but you can be rest assured that I will be telling people the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ that will lead them to the only God that is out there when they die.

The praise of men or the praise of God, which one is it for you? A false convert or a true convert, which one are you?

Please pray for the soul of President Bush. He needs to get his spiritual house in order. All of us need to examine ourselves to make sure we are of the faith. As I tell people, Judgment Day sorts everything out. Make sure you have it all sorted out before you get to the throne of God because it will be too late to do anything about it then.

Until the nets are full,

Mark Cahill
