When God speaks to you: Ask to see his credentials
It is the general consensus of most Christians that God speaks to us in mysterious ways: visions, signs, dreams, symbols, and of course through the Bible. The Good Book indicates that God had spoken personally to so few individuals, that it’s hard to take someone’s claim of divine communication seriously.
But maybe we should. After all, God told Adam he was naked, get some clothes on. God personally gave Moses the Ten Commandments. God warned Noah of a flood and even gave him the dimensions for the ark. God conferred with Paul on the road to Damascus.
And God spoke to George W. Bush.
Compared with the others, that may seem like the bottom end of the spiritual food chain to you. But not to George. He has made it amply clear to the whole world, on more than one occasion, that God personally came to him and told him to run for president because the country needed a man like him to lead it.
Now, looking at the dangerous dilemma George and his administration have put our country in, I have come to this conclusion: George either misread God’s command and cavalierly decided, now that the Lord had made him president, he was free to do what he damn well pleased with the country. OR, George, in neglecting to ask for any credentials thought God was talking to him, when in reality it was the Other Voice telling him what to do.
In either case, George screwed up, like he has done with just about everything he has touched in his tainted career; only THIS time this once glorious nation and the duped American people are paying a price to terrible to contemplate.
Something smelled bad from the beginning. If you bought the story of George being a recipient of God’s personal instruction, then you are forced to accept the mess that the president made of it.
On the other hand, if you bought the idea that George heard the “wrong” voice, then you must accept the fact that he might have sensed something went haywire with the instructions (why would God give the presidency to a man who went AWOL and deserted the military in a time of war?) but failed to make sure it was God’s voice he heard.
This makes George W. Bush either a willing partner in the “destroy America” conspiracy, or we are stuck with a man who is more qualified to swab the White House rest rooms, than be President of the United States.
As for this writer, I see George W. Bush as a curious and unnerving combination of not either, but both, negative attributes.
He is a willing participant in the dismantling of American values, culture, and principles, by his passive acquiescence to the plots and schemes of the traitorous neo-conservatives in his administration whose objective is to drag America into any war that will help them build the New World Order.
On the other side of the coin, George is also a dim-witted contributor to these sinister plots by virtue of not seeing the schemers for what they are and exorcising them from the influential positions they hold in his disastrous administration.
Thus, George W. Bush, as president, is an anomaly of ambiguities that is not only difficult to understand, but more menacing than a “hidden” forest fire: you can’t see the flames for all the blinding smoke.
But there is one thing about George W. Bush we do know for sure, because every word of it is documented. His failure as a leader—together with his deceptiveness as a person-has ragged his tail from the day he bought an oil company and went bankrupt because he couldn’t find any oil in Texas, to being the first president to run and hide when the U.S. came under attack, and then lied, saying the enemy had the code to Air Force one.
Bush’s resume is littered with ignominious facts. Here are just a few.
On the domestic scene, Bush spent our surplus and bankrupted the treasury. First president in history to enter office with a criminal record. Did nothing while over 2-million Americans lost their jobs. Refused to stop the invasion of illegal immigrants. Cut health care benefits for war veterans. Refused to use the national reserves as gasoline prices soared. Created the largest government department bureaucracy in U.S. history. First president to establish a secret shadow government. And on and on.
And his deceit in foreign affairs outdoes his domestic screw-ups. Bush dissolved more international treaties than any president in U.S. history. First president in history to order a U.S. attack and military occupation of a sovereign nation. Rendered the entire United Nations irrelevant. In less than a year, succeeded in making the U.S. the most resented country in the world. First president to have the majority of Europeans (71%) consider him the biggest threat to world peace and stability. Prevented public investigation of 9/11, the biggest security failure in the history of the U.S. Eviscerated the Constitution and neutered the Bill of Rights by instituting the Patriot Acts. Created the most divided country since the Civil War. And on and on.
Frankly, I don’t think God meant for George Bush to do all these traitorous things. So it must have been the Other Voice he heard.
And to think, all this might have been avoided if George had bothered to ask for his credentials.
