the preacher s response to george h.w bush s request to billy to answer a question for the family billy some people say you have to have a bornagain experience to go to heaven mother here is the most religious kind person i know yet she has had no born-again experience will she go to heaven graham responded george some of us require a bornagain experience to understand god and some of us are born christians it sounds as if your mom was just born a christian the younger george w bush in later recounting this story says that he was captivated by billy and does state that graham explained to him one-on-one that salvation was by grace and not through good works which seems to this reader a great contradiction to the answer given to the gathered family just moments prior upon their return to their respective homes graham sent george w and laura a copy of the living bible taken from decision points by george w bush the kj bible says jesus answered and said unto him verily verily i say unto thee except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of god john 3:3 wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world and death by sin and so death passed upon all men for that all have sinned romans 5:12 that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that god hath raised him from the dead thou shalt be saved romans 10:9 for whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved romans 10:13 for by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of god not of works lest any man should boast ephesians 2:8 9 hillary rodham clinton was asked during the state visit by hu whether china was friend or foe to the usa she obviously avoided a clear answer with china described as america s bank the us now owes china $900 billion and constantly faces china s manipulation of currency and theft of intellectual property among many other violations yet it appears washington dc is powerless in dealing with china maybe obama can lavishly wine and dine hu into some more favors to sell us out even more to china public or government run schools continue to struggle with ever increasing problems in simple day to day operation what is so complicated about recess well it seems schools across america find recess not so academic you ask what is so complicated about recess schools have been forced to cut out recess because of the lack of funds did not dc and lotteries promise adequate money for school programs who would have thought schools needed extra money for recess but thankfully playworks comes along with the answer for only $25 thousand per year playworks will return recess to the school near you another benefit provided by playworks is trained personel that can handle all your playground arbitration and crisis management now we have the answer to those playground bullies for only $25k per year what a deal and recess is back but must the taxpayer you spend another 25k on top of dc s budget all that lottery and those certified teachers surely can handle recess without much of a strain continued on page 29 for more resources visit ·5
