Nancy Pelosi’s favorite Bible verse isn’t in the Bible
« on: February 07, 2019, 02:57:17 PM »
 :rolling:  Something else I've noticed is her eyebrows.  Mine aren't the greatest, but she has an eyebrow above her eyes and then she also has a side brow in more recent pictures. 

Nancy Pelosi’s favorite Bible verse isn’t in the Bible

   House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has spent more than 15 years quoting her favorite passage from the Bible. The only problem is that the verse doesn’t actually exist anywhere in the sacred scriptures.

With an internet full of specious quotes out there it’s easy to see how people can occasionally get tripped up by something that sounds plausible. However, you’d think that someone would have higher standards when it comes to claims about their favorite bible teachings. Not so with the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.

The passage that Pelosi has cited as her favorite goes like this: “To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”

Congressional records reveal she has used it 11 times on the house floor since 2002. She also cites it outside of the House including recently when she addressed Christian educators at the end of January.

However, the passage simply doesn’t exist and Pelosi, who is Catholic, recently had to admit she couldn’t find it anywhere in the Holy Book............

It is interesting that during the time that she wasn't Speaker her dementia seemed very apparent.  Recently she seems quite 'with it'.

To be fair,  how many believe "God helps those who help themselves" is biblical?   :shrug:

You can make a decent Biblical argument for that one, but Nancy's not so much.  It also seems a bit more self serving.

I don't know... I am certain it is not Biblical, but I have read that somewhere... Something new-agey about it in my head...

The last time Pelosi touched a Bible, this happened.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

I loved that movie.  I know most people liked the original better, but the one with Russel Crowe is still pretty good.

No no no

It is "God help those who help themselves" and that is the shortened version.

Here is the full version: God help those who help themselves to bighead's sh**.

This is one of Nancy's "Bible's"

Remember when she said her favorite word was The Word? What was that, 15 years ago now? She’s not aged well.

I look at it this way; right now Pelosi is keeping AOC or whatever the heck the radical socialist name is, in check.

Two Thessalonians walk into a bar. They sit down and say, “Beer please.” The bartender gestures to the glasses and tap, then says, “Help yourself.”
