So, as she gives her concession speech this morning, Hillary Clinton quotes the Bible, “let us not grow weary…’ and then applies it to the loosing Democrats – instead of what Scripture is saying there! How folks love to sound and look spiritually minded! But the verse is totally misapplied. She went on to say, in relation to this verse, “Let us have faith in each other.” That is so… Clintonian. No mention of God. Just quoting the Bible so as to appear spiritual. Why can’t politicians really put their trust in God – publically?
We are to put our hope in God, not ourselves. That is what is wrong with a “Hillary type religion”. They put their hope in their own strength and thinking – rather than hoping in God and following His thinking. So sad.
or become discouraged
in doing good,
for at the proper time we will reap,
if we do not give in.
– Galatians 6:9
The verse a little further down from the verse she quotes, is what we all should be sharing:
14 But far be it from me to boast [in anything or anyone],
except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom the world has been crucified to me,
and I to the world.
– Galatians 6: verse 14
So many have their hope in a political party, or their workers, or in themselves. But our hope is in Christ.
