“Muslims, Christians worship same God” — BushOctober 6, 2007 — Deacon Duncan
The Baltimore Sun is reporting that George W. Bush sees the God of Islam as being the same God as the one Christians worship.
“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,’’ he said. “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.
The Christian God is supposed to be a Trinity, one member of which is Jesus. Muslims are strict monotheists who regard Jesus as a prophet who is out-ranked by Mohammed. Can we say at this point that George W. Bush is as good a theologian as he is a president?
