President George W. Bush stood before a cheering crowd at a Dallas Christian youth centre last week, and told them about being 'born again' as a Christian.
'If you change their heart, then they change their behaviour. I know,' he said, referring to his own conversion, which led to him giving up drinking.
Behind Bush were two banners. 'King of Kings', proclaimed one. 'Lord of Lords', said the other. The symbolism of how fervent Christianity has become deeply entwined with the most powerful man on the planet could not have been stronger.
Few US Presidents have been as openly religious as Bush. Now a new book has lifted the lid on how deep those Christian convictions run. It will stir up controversy at a time when the administration is keen to portray its 'war on terror' as non-religious.
President Bush is indeed in power because "...the powers that be are ordained of God." Romans 13:1
The Bible also states that God also rased up Pharoah, to show His power, (in judgement ), and that his name may be declared throughout all the earth. ( Romans 9:17 )
Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.( 1 Corinthians 10:12 )
And so dear saints ,we are exhorted to supplicate, pray, and intercede for all men, including those in authority ... 1 Timothy 2:1,2, with the blessing to do so that it is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour. ( verse 3)
