For all the mocking they gave Trump over his favorite part of Scripture… at least his exists.
For more than a decade now, the verse she tells us is ‘supposed to be in Isaiah’ … isn’t.
And it isn’t anywhere else to be found, either.
It’s gone on so long, even Left-wing bloggers at Slate are calling her out on it now.
Between 2002 and 2018, the quote appears 12 times in the Congressional Record, with Pelosi responsible for all but one of the entries. (The other time, Texas Republican Louie Gohmert was quoting Pelosi.) She has deployed it in speeches to recognize genocide in Darfur (“to ignore God’s creation, which are these children, is to dishonor the God who made them”), to strengthen the Endangered Species Act (“to minister to the needs of God’s creation, and that includes our beautiful environment”), twice to honor Catholic schools (“my Catholic education taught me that to minister to the needs of God’s creation”), and to express condolences after the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia (“it is appropriate on many occasions, but I thought of it the minute I saw the tsunami”).
You remember Slate, right? They’re the same kind of people that look the other way when another would-be Dem contender tried her hand at preaching:
That was a faceplant.
Here’s the report slamming Pelosi’s ‘favorite Bible Verse’.
We think it could be coming from Second Imagination, chapter three, but can’t be sure.
You’d think, if she’s speaking to an audience of people who are — presumably — biblically literate, she would want to check that quote out, first.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shared a Bible verse at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities conference Wednesday, but according to theology professors, the verse she shared is not in the Bible.
“And I can’t find it in the Bible, but I quote it all the time and I keep reading and reading the Bible,” Pelosi said. “I know it’s there someplace. It’s supposed to be in Isaiah. But I heard a bishop say, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God made us.’ It’s there somewhere in some words or another, but certainly the spirit of it is there.”
Whitworth University associate professor of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Will Kynes said the verse does not exist, according to Slate. The closest version was found in Proverbs 14:31, he said. Greg MaGee, a Taylor University associate professor, also said the verse from Proverbs is the closest to Pelosi’s.
What is the verse from Proverbs?
He who oppresses the poor taunts his Maker,
But he who is gracious to the needy honors Him.
Sure, Nancy, that’s exactly the same.
Hold up… did she says she keeps ‘reading and reading the Bible’???
Somehow… that seems difficult to believe.
Maybe it’s the support for treating a newborn child as disposable.
Maybe it’s her perpetual sneer.
Or her party’s war on Traditional Christian belief.
Or the fact that Democrats booed God at their 2012 Convention.
But if she reads and reads the Bible as often as she claims. Why has she STILL not figured out — in the last 10 years — that her quote isn’t any more Biblical than ‘With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility’?
Or another of her favorites, ‘From each according to their ability, to each according to their need.”
No, that wasn’t ‘Written In Red’ from someone’s copy of KJV either.
Maybe she’s got an English copy of a certain “Little Red Book” that was a huge seller overseas.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
