For those of us who actually read the Bible, the words of Paul at Romans 12:3 clearly ring out: "I tell everyone there among you not to think more of himself than it is necessary to think..."

Nothing in the full reading of then-Governor Bush's comments softens the arrogance implicit in even a fleeting notion of discerning the intentions of Jehovah God - the One whose "ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:9); the One whose Son said, "My kingdom is no part of this world" (John 18:36).

Reverend Land's attempt to transform Mr. Bush's Messianic brain cramp into a celebration of humility is as labored and futile as the President's efforts to justify his economic and war policies.
