Forgotten Bible Verses

Posted on the 25 September 2018 by Steveawiggins @stawiggins

Bible believers are basking in the headlines these days.What with Mr. “Meet My Genitals” gunning for the Supreme Court and displacing them for a few days, they must be getting anxious for more sonburn in the limelight.If only they didn’t have the Good Book standing in the way.As I was reading my Bible the other day, I was reminded of this little gem, “the love of money is the root of all evil.”Now, liberals like myself know that Paul of Tarsus didn’t write 1 Timothy, but Bible-believers know he did.So much the worse for them.They elected a president who stands for nothing so much as the love of money, and the swamp has become quite a root of evil.Senate Republicans, after hearing a second credible sexual assault allegation against their boy for the black bench responded by trying to rush through a vote before the news got out.And this reminded me of the forgotten prophets.

Forgotten Bible Verses

“What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”Well, you see, Mr. Micah, we know we’re heading to defeat in the midterms, so we’ve got to railroad through as many of our personal agendas as we can.Don’t you know, o Lord, that this is a lifetime appointment?And really, what does justice have to do with it?Sure, he gropes and demeans women, but you’re a dude, right?I bet you did the same when you were in high school and college.And the money thing?We’re only trying to help the economy because, well, wealth trickles down.Who said anything like it’s the root of all evil?“Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate.”Now, don’t go quoting Mr. Amos to me.Next thing I know you’ll be telling me to let justice to run down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.

Forgotten Bible verses, in the new Evangelicalism, seem to be cropping up on the black market.You might think we should turn back to the start of the Good Book and read from the beginning.There the GOP will find its solace until they come to the 27th verse, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”That semicolon says a lot; they will claim.Man is the image of God, and he had a son.Just don’t listen to closely to what that son says, particularly when he makes remarks like “whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”Young men like to drink and grope.When they grow old they then like to be Supreme Court justices.What’s that?One more short verse?“Jesus wept.”
