Bush: Religion Is Not a Course in Self-Improvement
Former president George W. Bush admitted in a recent interview that he was drunk when he met evangelist Billy Graham.
"I was listening to Billy through the haze of alcohol," he told Focus on the Family president Jim Daly.
The interview, which took place in Dallas last week, was broadcast on the ministry's daily radio program on Monday and Tuesday. It was one of many interviews the former president has been granting to promote his memoir Decision Points. But in the Focus on the Family interview, Bush opened up more about his faith and his family....

I Have To Laugh My Head & Heart Out At You, "Ted" !
Do YOU Know How Stupid You "Sound" Misapplying & Misquoting HOLY WRIT ?
THE HISTORIC AUTHORIZED HOLY ENGLISH KING JAMES BIBLE SAYS:
"DRINK NO LONGER WATER, BUT USE A LITTLE WINE FOR THY STOMACH'S SAKE AND THINE OFTEN INFIRMITIES."--I TIMOTHY 5:23
NOTICE: IT DOESN'T SAY "But DRINK A Little (Or A LOT OF) [Virgin] Wine"--IT SAYS: "But USE A Little [Virgin] Wine" !
DRINKING OF (STRONG) WINE [OR ANY FORM OF "WINE" FOR THAT MATTER] ISN'T EVEN SPECIFICALLY ADVOCATED, ENCOURAGED, COMMANDED &-OR WRITTEN IN "I TIMOTHY 5:23": THE FAVORITE KING-JAMES-BIBLE VERSE OF AL CAPONE & THE ANTI-PROHIBITION FORCES OF HELL-FIRE & THE ETERNAL LAKE OF FIRE ! ! ! ! !
I PERSONALLY USED TO GET A "KICK" OUT OF HOW MY FORMER "PASTOR", DR. WAYNE VAN GELDEREN SR., ONCE EXPLAINED "1 TIMOTHY 5:23":
HE SAID THAT THE "USE" MEANT TO TAKE THE "WINE", POUR IT ON YOUR HAND, AND THEN RUB IT ON TOP OF YOUR BELLY OR "STOMACH"--AS THE WORD OF GOD NEVER SPECIFICALLY ENCOURAGES ANYONE, EVEN IN "1 TIMOGHY 5:23", TO EVER "DRINK", "GUZZLE" OR "BIB" THE "LITTLE WINE" FOR "YOUR STOMACH'S SAKE AND OFTEN INFIRMITIES" !
OFF TOPIC Jim, is actually a lack of good salts, good fats, and fermented foods that lead to disease, Ferments do not always require a culture, although it is preferrable, vegetable ferments, if done right can be done with salt alone. Amazing God we serve, isn't it? "You are the salt of the earth"----then we end up with some kind of bleached, chemical salt and the guv says, "salt is bad for you." No.....their salt is bad for you. Like the famous "eggs give you cholesterol and kill you study." Ya, the guv studies the nutrition of egg powder, depleted of its natural food strength. The truth is their powdered eggs are bad for you. "Nourishing Traditions" is a great book if you are struggling with what the tv (FDA) has taught you. There are actual natural cures out there. (Shhh!) As if God intended to nourish his people. (Shhh!)
So, I think Elmer got what I was trying to say. Our diets do not honor God----we do not know how far we have slipped. Can anyone tell me, when they eat fast food, what percentage of that bite you take is just chemicals? The seeds of the earth are a gift from God. Add a little salt and a little culture, and finesse and viola, your stomach will love you.
What kind of salt? The perverted table salt - sure. Straight up sea salt - now that's some good, healthy stuff.
Good point by jpw, you alls should take heed.
Yeah, folks may not drink and condemn those who do, but not only will they eat poison because the "governing authorities" say it's ok, but they even go as far as injecting poison and disease into their bodies!
OFF TOPIC!! ketchup used to be fermented. All pickled foods, sauerkrauts, kimchis, fish sauce, vinegars, ginger-ales, etc.
Modernists have forgotten the foods that fed their ancestors.
For the above, salt is used. The salt protects against dangerous germs while promoting the growth of healthy germs, that live in your gut and are essential for digesting food, which is what happens when milk is fermented into yogurt or kefir.
This is off topic, I know, but I keep hearing this discussion on fermenting as if fermenting is just about getting drunk, when the actual legitimate process preserved human health for millenium.
Dead, chemicalized food is no great testament to God, eating aspartame, which is literally a deadly poison, while judging those who ruin their lives on drink. I see the prior more often these days, people gorging on sugar that literally ferments into alcohol in the gut, getting drunk on their foods, while never touching wine!
"the son of man came eating and drinking grapejuice"
Do you know how stupid and unbiblical a statement that is? You may not drink alcholol as I don't either, but creating lies to create false doctrines is a heresy (though that is I suppose normal on this Calvinist heresy site I guess).
Jesus made aged wine (aka "the good stuff"), not grape juice.
Jhn 2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: [but] thou hast kept the good wine until now.
Drinking wine (no, not only grape juice) is also supported elsewhere.
1 Tim 5:23 Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.
And no that does not mean drinking until drunk, but it does means drinking alcholol.
So even if you don't drink it, don't deny it, or you will be found out to be a liar every time.
They Also Have STRONG-DRINK, STRONG-WINE & DRUNKEN BOOZE SEX ORGIES ["The most faggy g--d----- thing"--RICHARD NIXON] At THE BOHEMIAN GROVE--Like ALEX JONES Exposed Long Ago.
ALEX However FAILED To Report On THE ROMAN-"CATHOLIC" CULTIC "MASS"-MESS That Was Being Performed RIGHT NEXT To THE "HUMAN-SACRIFICE" DONE Before MOLOCH The "OWL"-god Of THE BOHEMIAN-GROVERS !
I Have To Laugh At How The BILLY-GRAHAMITE HYPOCRITES Will Accuse Others Of BILLY-GRAHAMITE HYPOCRISY; For Ever Even THINKING, Let Alone PUBLICLY & ACTUALLY, AUTHORIZED-BIBLICALLY REBUKING THE FALSE-PROPHET & "PROTESTANT-POPE": BILLY GRAHAM !
As Old "BILLY-GOAT" GRAHAM--LIKE THE ROMAN "CATHOLIC" ANTI-CHRIST POPE BENEDICT (RATZINER) & APOSTATE-PROTESTANTISM--STILL USE THE STRONG-WINE OF THEIR SPIRITUAL FORNICATION IN THEIR BOOZED-UP, UN-HOLY "COMMUNION", "EUCHARIST" & "LITERAL-BODY & BLOOD OF GOD" BLASPHEMY !
FOR ALL THEIR "VIRGIN" 'MARY'-WORSHIPPING; THE EVIL VATICAN & THEIR COVERT-OVERT GOONS POSTING ON SERMONAUDIO; WILL NEVER MENTION, OR EVER STATE THE HISTORIC FACT OF JESUS CHRIST'S KOSHER VIRGIN-WINE DRINKING AT HIS KOSER-PASSOVER & KOSHER-"LAST SUPPER" !
"THE SON OF MAN CAME EATING AND DRINKING (KOSHER-WINE OR GRAPEJUICE), AND THEY SAY, BEHOLD...A[N UNKOSHER-STRONG] WINEBIBBER..." Mat.11:19a !
Matthew 7 3 "And why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?---NASB
Bumbling Bush, could well be right that was one the best verses in the Bible for a politician to know. I thought this was a recent meeting with Graham. Considering all the bad decisions that Bush during his administration, I thought he was still drinking like a fish. In any event I hope that no more members of the oil industry get elected to the Presidency.
Psalms 141 3 Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips. 4 Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, To practice deeds of wickedness With men who do iniquity; And do not let me eat of their delicacies.---NASB
The Fat Guy wrote: Sorry Bush, but you don't try Christianity. It is not a temporary thing! It is a eternal life changing event infused by the Life Giver. You try chocolate, you try M&Ms, you try chicken soup.
Be careful of trying too much of that chocolate, M&Ms and chicken soup. It'll make you fat.
