I am a Christian, I never voted for Bush. Alot of politicians use Christians to get in office.To all of you Christian right people out there. Bush should never have lied when he said he was a born again Christian since he had no intentions of ever following up on it as you can see. He would have been better off if he had kept his mouth shut.
First read your bible, it talks about false teachers and false prophets, They were around in Jesus Day as well.
Second, When a person becomes a Christian he or she is not going to be sinless or pure: Romans 5:20
They are forgiven and saved. So if expect George Bush to pure and perfect, it wont happen and the bible is clear on that.
Christians do sin, here is the difference:
Falling or practice
If a person is a Christian , you will know them by their love, but a Christian in his walk will fall at times. God does not expect sinless perfection.
The differance with phonies is: They continue to practice sin and never repent. That is what you look for.
Example: A person who has been a thief his whole life gets saved.
Now during his walk, he steals again, he is convicted by the Holy Spirit, and asks for forgiveness.
Example of Practice:
A person who has been an Adulterer his whole life, claims he has been saved and is a Christian.
Yet he continues to commit Adultry and could care less about forgiveness, and never stops.
These are the people that ruin the Christian name. And there are many of them.
Also people who are too lazy to pick up a bible and read it constantly judge Christians daily, and expect purity. Their ignorant. It will never happen until we are out of these Fallen bodies.
I hope this helps.
