Skip to comments.Hillary: “I have Felt the Presence of the Holy Spirit”
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. Its a fairly in depth interview. Well, for your listening pleasure, The Brody File found the actual audio from the interview and its 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 Im 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, Ive asked every Sunday school teacher Ive ever had, I asked every theologian Ive ever talked with, whether that meant that there was no salvation, there was no heaven for people who did not accept Christ. And, youre well aware that there are a lot of answers to that. There are people who are totally rooted in the fact that, no, thats why there are missionaries, thats 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, thats how we understand it and who are we to read Gods 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 Gods desire for a personal relationship, but we cant possibly understand every way God is communicating with us. Ive 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 were supposed to take from the Bible.
...and yet she consistently ignores it.
31 “Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven.
She just lost ANY evangelicals, charismatics or fundamentalists that hear about this. Idiot!
Ugh! Didn’t hillary discover she was Jewish when she ran for the Senate in NY?
“Ive 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 were 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.
“I believe in the father, son, and Holy Spirit...”
What’s up with the lower case father and son???
It’s not the Holy Spirit Hillary, it’s your demonic adviser. Tell him to keep a more low profile.
Where’s the BARF ALERT?
Well, the Bible is a living... breathing document, dontchaknow.
That was a hotflash, honey...........
Nah, that was just Huma's magic tongue!
Even demons believe - and shudder!
not sure,,, posted as found or transcribed..
“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.”
That woman would do and say ANYTHING, and I mean ANYTHING, to get the democrat nomination.
“Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and not do what I tell you?” (Luke 6:46)
Clinton: “ and I have felt the presence of the Holy Spirit on many occasions in my years on this earth. “
“And on those few occasions, I tell you, I had a hell of a time shooing it away from me!” /semi-sarc
Yes, but only one is correct.
“I just ate a mouse!”
Or Eleanor Roosevelt.
Can’t lose what you never had.
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.
“Whats up with the lower case father and son???”
She probably thinks they’re “lesser gods”.
The Marines, duck hunting, now this???? GMAFB!
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.
Nonsense. She just doesn't quote it so much as Obama does.
Someone should photoshop Hillary’s face onto that pic of Linda Blair :-)
Rush: Be careful what you wish for!
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.
“...Hillary: I have Felt the Presence of the Holy Spirit...”
And since He wasn’t carrying any campaign contributions, she just as quickly ignored Him.
I swear, EVERYTHING that comes out of this woman’s mouth is a lie.
But, by golly, she’s good at it!
Back in the 90’s I used to think Bill Clinton was the Anti-Christ. Over time it dawned on me that he wasn’t, he was married to her.
Could it have been.....SATAN?
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.
You said it. Funny how Clinton didn’t mention faith until the Christian voters turned out for ‘04.
But, by golly, she's good at it!
Yes, probably why she was so good on SNL - she's always acting.
Yet she supports the killing of the innocent unborn.
Ahhhh! Get it away from me!
