Hillary: “I have Felt the Presence of the Holy Spirit”
The Brody File ^ | 3/6/08 | David Brody - CBN

Posted on 03/06/2008 12:25:16 PM PST by NormsRevenge

In July of last year, Hillary Clinton gave an interview to New York Times reporter Michael Luo about her faith. It’s a fairly in depth interview. Well, for your listening pleasure, The Brody File found the actual audio from the interview and it’s real interesting.

Reading the transcription of the interview is one thing but hearing Hillary Clinton talk about her faith is very different. Listen here. You can read the transcription here.

At the time, the article got significant play but some of the quotes from the whole interview never got used in the article. Here are some key quotes that I thought you might be interested to look at:

Hillary Clinton: I believe in the father, son, and Holy Spirit, and I have felt the presence of the Holy Spirit on many occasions in my years on this earth.

Reporter: Can I ask you theologically, do you believe that the resurrection of Jesus actually happened, that it actually historically did happen?

Senator Clinton: Yes, I do.

Reporter: And, do you believe on the salvation issue -- and this is controversial too -- that belief in Christ is needed for going to heaven?

Senator Clinton: That one I’m a little more open to. I think that it is, as we understand our relationship to God as Christians, it is how we see our way forward, and it is the way. But, ever since I was a little girl, I’ve asked every Sunday school teacher I’ve ever had, I asked every theologian I’ve ever talked with, whether that meant that there was no salvation, there was no heaven for people who did not accept Christ. And, you’re well aware that there are a lot of answers to that. There are people who are totally rooted in the fact that, no, that’s why there are missionaries, that’s why you have to try to convert. And, then there are a lot of other people who are deeply faithful and deeply Christ-centered who say, that’s how we understand it and who are we to read God’s mind about such a weighty decision as that.

Reporter: And your attitude toward the Bible about how literally people should take it...

Senator Clinton: I think the whole Bible is real. The whole Bible gives you a glimpse of God and God’s desire for a personal relationship, but we can’t possibly understand every way God is communicating with us. I’ve always felt that people who try to shoehorn in their cultural and social understandings of the time into the Bible might be actually missing the larger point that we’re supposed to take from the Bible.

Like unrestricted abortion? Did she find Roe vs Wade in the Bible? Only a sociopath could have such a detached personality.

No Hillary, there is only ONE answer to that, and that answer is based on the Words of Jesus when He said: "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life - NO one cometh unto the Father except by ME."

Deal with it Hillary. That's the way it is.

Hillary, the scab came off your herpes sore again. Thank Bill for that, we know you didn’t consent, he took you when you were drunk and your “girlfriend” had gone out for a pack of clove cigarettes.

Truthfully, she may be telling the truth, I can’t believe she was ALWAYS evil, couldve happened when she was 9.

I don’t think so. I’m am an evangelical and am as anti-Hillary as anyone, but what she says here is actually reasonable. We are not God. I know that many will point to scriptural authority stating that Christ is the only way to eternal life, but this doesn’t rule out the possibility that there are different methods of believing in Christ.

Jesus said, “Even the demons know that I am and tremble.”

Yes, this demon has felt the presence of the Holy Spirit.....particularly when she used the words, “I can’t recall”, 250 times before the Grand Jury.

Ummm, I thought it was pretty simple. Those who do not accept do not get admittance into heaven. Her use of the phrase "did not accept" implies she is talking about people who were offered the opportunity and refused. From my admitted limited understanding of this, if you refuse to accept Christ, you're denied salvation.

I just cannot believe there is more religion being brought into this race. Sheesh. This has been the most "religious" presidential race in years, and the media is the one who keeps stirring the pot, which is ironic given the incredible amounts of crap that they gave Bush for saying "Jesus" was the person who had most influenced his life.

Bill felt the bible once, He, Hillary and an aide were leaving some function and as soon as they got in the limo she THREW her bible at Bill. Sorry I can’t reference this but it was a story told by the aide, or in a book he wrote years ago.

She went the way of the Left in college. Up to that point she had been doing okay. Thank the liberal commie educators who warped her mind and helped make her the person she is today. Hell, I have an aunt that followed the exact same steps and is within a year of the same age as her. My aunt’s personal life has been sh1t for over 40+ years. Her career has been pretty good, but personal life in the crapper.

I have felt the presence of the Holy Spirit on many occasions in my years on this earth.

That's a very easy claim to make, and almost impossible to prove either

a) That the speaker has genuinely experienced the presence of any spiritual being or

b) that the spiritual being in question actually is The Holy Spirit.

Lots of folks feel free to make the claim, though, to support their particular beliefs. In doing so, they make themselves their own particular ultimate authority.
