George and Tony should take heed


A Readers Commentary

The author of the piece, "Gore Vidal calls Bush, Blair 'Dangerous Jesus Lovers,' provides the following note to Mr. Bush and Mr. Blair: "Note to President Bush and Prime Minister Blair: keep in mind what Christ told his  apostles on the night before He was crucified: 'If the world hates you, know that it  has hated me before you ... if they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also.'  In other words, you're in very good company." Wow ...  That's just what the world needs, is for people to farther inflame the fanatically religious minds of these people. That should encourage the slaughter of thousands more innocent people in Iraq and elsewhere, in the Name of Jesus, with no difficulty at all.

The Apostle Peter described these people who use Scripture out of context to justify such horrible actions as the killing of innocent human beings, when he wrote in  2 Peter 3:16:  "which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction."

It just astonishes me, how some ignorant person could encourage the likes of Bush and Blair to continue with this slaughter of human beings, by implying that it would be "looked on with favor" by Jesus Christ. Jesus said, as recorded by Matthew, in chapter 5, verse 21:  "Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:"

Jesus again warned these ignorant people of their fate, as recorded by Matthew in Chapter 7, verses 22 & 23:   "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy
name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."  Bush and Blair ARE NOT in "very good company." They are among those that Jesus upbraided in John 8:44,  "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

These people who claim the authority of Jesus Christ, the "Prince of Peace,"  ... as  Isaiah called Him in Chapter 9, verse 6: "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace,"  ... to murder other human beings are in for a very rude awakening in the not too distant future, for they are murderers, and the Apostle John explicitly warns in 1 John 3:15:  "Ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him."

John also gave another warning to these people in 1 John 3:7  "Let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous."  To have any authority from Jesus Christ a person has to be "righteous, even as he is righteous." And that does not include the murder of innocent children. Jesus, Himself, again warned:  Matthew 18:14, "It is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish."   Matthew 18:10,   "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven." and  again in Mark 9:42  "And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea."

The advice that people should be giving  George and Tony is, TAKE HEED!
