Tony Blair believed God wanted him to go to war to fight evil, claims his mentor

The former Prime Minister’s faith is claimed to have influenced all his key policy decisions and to have given him an unshakeable conviction that he was right.

John Burton, Mr Blair’s political agent in his Sedgefield constituency for 24 years, says that Labour’s most successful ever leader – in terms of elections won – was driven by the belief that “good should triumph over evil”.

“It’s very simple to explain the idea of Blair the Warrior,” he says. “It was part of Tony living out his faith.”

“Living out his faith”.

Somewhere I missed the scriptures that had Christ saying “Go, and kill those that are not a threat to you”.

I’m sure it’s in there somewhere. Perhaps I should ask Pastor Hagee.
