  • I don't if you know this, but Tony Blair is also a christian. In my other blog, I recently wondered (in my usual sacrilegious manner) how Blair and Bush reconciled war with their christian beliefs [dave.org.uk].

    Interestingly, yesterday the UK newspaper The Independent on Sunday put a selection of readers questions to Blair. One of these was the same as my question (tho' phrased more politely). His answers to that and other questions [independent.co.uk] are interesting (but, ultimately unconvincing).

    • Thanks for the links - I'm reading them now. After reading your blog entry, this was an easy one to answer:
      Are you prepared to go to war even this will mean your soul will burn in hell for all eternity?
      Salvation is an easy answer (speaking in terms of Christianity) - Bush simply has to accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior (which further implies living/leading a Christ-like life) to be redeemed. So going to war doesn't necessarily imply that Bush's (or Blair's) soul will be damned. As Christians, though, they should be prayerfully considering this issue very thoroughly.

      You do have an interesting point, though - if they are making decisions that they decry to be Christian, but really are more self-serving (which is what I hear mostly from the anti-war crowd), then that is a sin that they would need God's redemption/forgiveness - but that would be an issue between them & God - it's up to God to forgive them (and from His choice, be either saved or damned), not us.

      I don't think I'm presenting the logic clearly, but I hope you get my point.
