A hoax e-mail – one version – which is meant to “honor” George W. Bush and also witness to Christ goes as follows:
There is a man in our church, Jeff Benoit, who told this story.
Last week, Gov. Bush appeared at a banquet for his campaign staff, and was going table to table to shake hands with the volunteers.
He got to one lady, who indicated she was a Christian. She was there with her 14-year-old son. Gov. Bush asked him if he was a believer, too. He said he didn't think so. Gov. Bush then asked, "Do you mind if I tell you how I came to know Christ as my Savior?" The boy agreed, and Bush witnessed to him for 30 minutes, and led him in the sinner’s prayer!!
Yes, my dear friend, we are living in the end times. How glorious to know that our new president is a man that would take 30 minutes of his precious time to lead a teenager to Christ.
The story is not true; it did not happen. The email lies. Most probably “Jeff Benoit” is a fictitious name. A reporter on the Austin newspaper, Ken Herman, who is a “real” person checked into it with the Bush people.
Which only shows that some people do not mind making up “lies for Jesus” which also make their political candidate look good. I cannot fathom their thinking.
It is reported that a number of church attendees have heard this story from their pulpits.
