This explains why Bush's Christian followers are able to turn a blind eye to his many egregious sins. He lies, tortures, murders with impunity, and because he has "accepted Jesus", he is immune to the laws that normally govern human behavior. This exemption has been extended to his entire administration, by the press and much of the citizenry.
Meanwhile, what does the Bible say about grace and sin? A clear statement was made by Paul in his letter to the Romans:
Romans 6: 15What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law
but under grace?
Of course not!
Christians in America would do well to ignore the right - wing apologists for Bush who claim he is a Christian, and go back to their Bibles for the truth.
