Versions And Translations


A recent interview with Hillary Clinton once again made me wonder if there’s a Progressive Liberal version of the Bible provided solely to ProgLibDem politicians, talkingheads, and other fellow travelers.

I mean, we’ve had Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Mr. Obama all slaughtering the Bible and its teachings, as well as a veritable cornucopia of ‘social gospel’ preachers and teachers who’ve confused exegesis with eisegesis, so why not Hillary?

In the interview, Ms Clinton said:
"At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking. I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it and being guided by it. I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement."
Really, Hilly?  Guess that Bible of yours didn’t have the admonitions against things like lying, stealing, coveting, cursing and taking the Lord’s name in vain.

Of course, you do admit to having embraced the ‘social' socialist gospel from your Methodist upbringing, so maybe they didn’t talk much about that, did they?

And I’m thinking there’s something else missing from your Bible: the whole ‘you will know them by their fruits’ stuff Jesus talked about.  And I’m not the only one who thinks that, I guess, considering how the conservative side of the Twitterverse reacted to your FaithVoters4Hillary tweet.

And ‘predictable’?  Why would anyone think that of your admission in the interview?  Perhaps because Mr. Obama, Mr. Biden, Ms Pelosi, and pretty much every other Progressive ‘Christian’ and their fellow-travelers out there all thump their Bibles whenever they want to justify their words and deeds?

If I may be so bold as to offer a suggestion, perhaps you ought to dump your ProgLib version of the Bible and pick up a different one … perhaps an NIV or ESV Study Bible.

What about Obama's Bible? Remember the kids song "The B-I-B-L-E"???

Obama probably sings "The K-O-R-A-N"

I like the NIV. I've had one since the 1970's probably, can't remember. Will have to check my Bible, hubby gave me one as a gift.

I believe it is one of the more accurate 'translations'.

Many politicians are really hard to understand, take Peolsi for one. Supposedly a Catholic, yet look what she believes in
