NEW YORK — In conceding the presidential race on Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton cited Scripture, as did her running mate Tim Kaine.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


Kaine, a Roman Catholic, referred to Matthew 7:20 in comparing Christ’s parable about those who come into the Kingdom later than others to those who joined Clinton’s campaign efforts in the tail end of the push.

“There’s a beautiful and kind of comical parable in the New Testament about a vineyard owner who hires people to work and says, ‘And I’m going to pay you this for a full day,”‘ Kaine stated. “Then he hires people at noon—‘I’m going to pay you the same thing for the half day.’ Then he hires people one hour before and—‘I’m going to pay you the same.’ And those who started early in the day say, ‘Hold on. We don’t like this. That you’re treating everybody who came late just as well as you’re treating us.’”

“I’m going to tell you something, here’s what I’ve come to know so well about Hillary,” he continued. “The team that she has assembled over the years of people that are so deeply loyal to her because she’s so deeply loyal to them is inspiring. But I’ve seen that same degree of loyalty and compassion and sensitivity extended to the most recent folks who have joined the team. The folks who came to the vineyard with just one hour to go.”

Kaine became teary-eyed at times as Clinton conceded the race to billionaire business mogul Donald Trump.

“I am sorry that we did to win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country,” Clinton said. “I know how disappointed you feel because I feel it, too. This is painful and it will be for a long time.”

“Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead,” she continued. “Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power. And we don’t just respect that, we cherish it.”

Clinton, who identifies as a Methodist, cited Galatians 6:9, which the Apostle Paul had written to encourage the people of Galatia to continue doing what is right in the sight of God. Clinton used the verse to exhort her supporters to “have faith in each other.”

“You know, Scripture tells us, ‘Let us not go weary in doing good for in due season, we shall reap if we do not lose heart.’ So my friends, let us have faith in each other. Let us not grow weary; let us not lose heart,” she said. “For there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do.”

Clinton and Kaine had been rejected by a number of evangelicals as Clinton is a staunch supporter of abortion, including late-term abortion, as well as same-sex “marriage.” Kaine had said that while he has personal beliefs about the issues as a Roman Catholic, he felt he should still give people their “rights” to do as they choose and would back Clinton in her efforts despite his opinions.

  1. Absolutely unbelievable! Talk about “another gospel” via wrong interpretation – because if you are washed in The Blood, you have the wisdom and humility to live and testify to the truth of scripture.

    • No doubt about that. I heard Hillary say that live, made me sick. Those words should not ever come out of her mouth unless and until she actually meets the Lord and repents.

      Good to see you here Mrs. CJB. 🙂
