Speaker Nancy Pelosi has decided to follow President Obamas lead in claiming that God directs her lawmaking, invoking the Bible as her legislative roadmap. If a conservative Republican did this, it would be the top of the news.
Last week, Pelosi made a rambling, redundant, somewhat incoherent monologue in which she claimed that The Word directed her. She clarified that meant The Word Made Fleshthe incarnate DeityJesus Christ. She doesnt leave us to surmise, elaborating that she makes policy decisions, in keeping with the values of Jesus.
However, the only place to learn about The Word Jesus is to read The Word, the Bible. As two Christians who read the Bible, were not sure where in its pages Nancy Pelosi found the inspiration for her top legislative priorities. Since the Bible is the sacred text of the Christian faith, and the exclusive record of the teachings and values of Jesus, where else could she be enlightened to the values of Jesus?
We dont recall ever reading, Thou shalt require every person to buy health insurance or Thou shalt oppose charter schools and home-schooling in the Bible. Wed have to rename the Ten Commandments the Twelve Commandments instead. How do those Pelosi priorities embody the values of Jesus?
Nor do we remember being taught, And Peter spoke unto them, saying, The Lord commands that you shall pass a cap-and-trade tax which shall tax all the people, that they may inherit a cooler planet. (Given that the science doesnt support man-made global warming, at least this last possibility would explain where Speaker Pelosi gets her evidence for cap-and-trade. Shes claiming divine revelation.)
We cant imagine what Bible Speaker Pelosi is reading. The Bible does not sanction gay marriage or abortion. It does not command heavy taxes on employers and professionals to pay for government handouts.
Instead, the Bible speaks of God and man, the relationship between the two and how that relationship can be restored. It reveals the moral character of God, the divine plan for the ages, and explains the purpose and duties of man.
From everything we see from her, we are firmly convinced that none of those biblical instructions or admonitions has any impact on Pelosis official activities.
This reminds us of the 2008 election season, where then-Senator Barack Obama claimed that Christian Right leaders had hijacked Christianity. Hijacked? How dare any politician claim that a group of clergymen upholding the traditional beliefs of the Christian faith is hijacking.
Yet after winning the White House, President Obama showed the audacity to claim a biblical mandate for his agenda. On August 19, 2009, the president held a conference call with Christian clergy, urging them to endorse his healthcare legislation as a moral issue, and claiming that their Christian duty to care for their brother obligated them to support him. Now that is what hijacking Christianity looks like.
In the end, perhaps President Obama and Speaker Pelosi read the Bible the same way they read the Constitution. They believe in rights to abortion and government-run healthcare, despite the fact that the Constitution nowhere mentions such rights, but they oppose the idea that the Second Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment make gun bans like the D.C. gun ban or the Chicago gun unconstitutional, despite the fact that the Constitution plainly declares it.
Obama and Pelosi likewise do not take at face value the Bibles words on countless moral issues or divine truths. They claim biblical imperatives that are not found in the text, and ignore words that are spelled out in black and white.
If a Republican politician did this, there would be an outrage. How dare he! Doesnt he know the Constitution declares the separation of church and state? (Words, by the way, which never appear in the Constitution.)
But this is the hypocrisy of the modern liberal culture. Countless Christians who go about their 2 Timothy 3:16 duty of regarding the Bible as God-breathed, and useful for teaching and correcting are mocked and ridiculed. These leftist elites recoil in horror if you cite to a specific passage of Scripture as guiding your decisions, while claiming that the Bible endorses a far-left political agenda is not considered worth mentioning on the air.
In our #1-bestselling book, The Blueprint, we explain how this is part of President Obamas design to fundamentally transform this country. Christians need to rise up and contend for their faith. In the words of Titus 1:9, we must, hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that we may, encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.
These are challenging times in which we live, but Providence has placed us in a country where we have the right and ability to speak out. We must not stand silently by as Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama claim that we have hijacked Christianity, while in fact that is exactly what they are doing right before our eyes.
We must stop President Obamas blueprint to turn America into a radical secular nation.
I don’t think he believes in either.
Obama and Pelosi HATE Christianity...
both of em huge fakes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pelosi knows better. Mocking God has disastrous results.
Frankly, I don't think it is possible.
He may know how to go through the forms prescribed by the mullahs to meet the standards set by Mohammad, but he doesn't believe any part of it.
Same with Christianity. That's what that version of "The Church of Christ" teaches folks to do ~ to "get street cred", or "get along with the man", or "fool the clients".
To say, or even imply, that Obama and Pelosi hijack Christianity is as absurd as claiming that two fleas have hijacked Mt. Everest.
yes, leftism is a religion to the Omaba types. It is the way they feel good andjustified in their hatred for bright and successful people. The devil works his deception and failed promises through socialism. He is actually trying to be better than God. Too bad he has lost his most bright nature.Of course his darkness met with love and strength which grows our brighness. Oops, did not know that would happen, eh satan....
Indeed they are, and only fools would do that
Correct. Unfortunately people will fall for false prophets
One only need review the scoffing and mocking of Chris Matthews at Sarah Palin -- though I will grant, he won't ever be in the *top of the news* camp.
Pelosi is evil because she supports abortion, the killing of the unborn.
Anyone who is so "progressive" as not to remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God; whoever remains in the teaching has the Father and the Son.
2 John 9
THE WORD says that “SATAN comes as an angel of light”, which means the devil in the evil ones pretends to be christian in order to deceive sleeping christians, who are not alert......
THE WORD also says that ‘the antichrists will be able to deceive, even the very elect of God’....sure sounds like it’s happening now.
“That’s their thing and they can work it out with the Lord someday.”
Exactly. They might fool some people, but God is never fooled.
Yes - they are self-righteous. And yes - they are playing God.
They want us to turn to them, not to God, when we have a need.
Subversive scu&bag swine in action.
These people are the lowest of street punks.
And the psychotic street punks in the press support them.
I believe that to them; many of the leftists, they are bringing about God’s will.
They will NOT succeed. True Christians can recognize them as counterfeit.
This speaks for itself.
My thoughts also. You cannot hijack a spirit. You can only wrongfully use the word “Christian.”
