Posted on 08/09/2017 12:35:31 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
A United Methodist minister is publishing a book of daily Bible devotionals inspired by the verses regularly sent to Hillary Rodham Clinton when she was running for president.
The Rev. Bill Shillady, executive director of the New York-based United Methodist City Society, will be releasing the book on Aug. 15.
Titled Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the book will include 365 of the over 600 devotions as well as a forward by Clinton herself.
"Over the course of those 20 months, Shillady a pastoral friend of Clinton's and a small team of other pastors provided the Democratic nominee with spiritual support to stay strong through arguably one of the more contentious elections in American history," noted the book's description on Abingdon Press.
"The book's devotions are organized into 12 themes, such as forgiveness, doing good, courage, and women. A portion of the proceeds from the book will go to the United Methodist City Society in New York."
During the course of the 2016 election, Clinton's Methodist Christian background became a subject on the campaign trail.
For example, at a rally in Knoxville, Iowa, in January 2016, Clinton spoke about her Methodist upbringing influencing her to, among other things, be more tolerant of others.
"I do believe that in many areas judgment should be left to God, that being more open, tolerant and respectful is part of what makes me humble about my faith," said Clinton.
"My study of the Bible, my many conversations with people of faith, has led me to believe the most important commandment is to love the Lord with all your might and to love your neighbor as yourself, and that is what I think we are commanded by Christ to do."
Mark Tooley, president of the Institute on Religion & Democracy, has argued that Clinton's convictions are more focused on secular works than religious practice.
In an op-ed piece published by The Christian Post in September 2015, Tooley asserted that Clinton's Methodist beliefs were centered more on the "social gospel," which stresses secular improvement of society over evangelism and orthodoxy.
"To my knowledge, Hillary has not been a regular churchgoer since leaving the White House 14 years ago, although daughter Chelsea was married by a Methodist clergy in New York, whose congregation may be a sort of home church for the Clintons," wrote Tooley.
"But active church participation is not central for the social gospel, which focuses on transforming society, not saving individual souls."
“12 themes, such as...doing good,”
One thing you can say about Clinton, “she done good” but not in the Christian sense.
Her Heinous is going to publish devotionals on forgiveness and doing good. BJ Billy is going to publish devotionals on chastity and marital fidelity. Chelsea, on the rewards of working hard. Just one big, happy family...
That would be light reading..................
“Hillary has not been a regular churchgoer since leaving the White House, although daughter Chelsea did get married in a church”
Talk about damning with faint praise!
“How To Scam Your Fellow Co-Religionists”
A close friend grew up Methodist. At least one Methodist minister openly does not believe Jesus rose from the dead.
Sounds like a Babylon Bee article.
“Hey, these pages are all blank!”
It would be a leaflet.
But... “separation of church and staaaaaaaaaaate!!”
lol...this is SO transparent. She lost precisely because deeply religious people KNOW she’s practically Satan incarnate and so now she’s disguising herself as an angel of light.
She’s going after Trump’s evangelical base!
Good luck with that.
As Groucho Marx said, approximately, “If you can fake sincerity, you’ve got it made.”
‘Out Satan Out!’
excerpted from the Inspirational Hillary Meme:
Forget making up lies, forget being responsible, just remember to forget things, and those things that are forgotten won’t be remembered by anyone alive in 1 to 100 years, even sooner in the case of some internet hackers or former lovers...
Nothing lasts forever and except my eternal desire to be the most powerful woman in the world. and the russians did it.
I should be entitled “Mamom and Money: My Guides to a Better Life”.
Hillary belongs to “The Church of I’m Going to Get Mine Now”.
Hillary is God. Bill is Co-God
The Clinton Foundation is their Church
Bank Deposits are their Bible
Favorite religious slogan: “No pay, no pray (i.e. play)” AND
“In God we trust; all others pay cash”
Favorite religious philosopher: P.T. Barnum - “There’s a sucker born every minute”
Hillary can no longer enter a church without first bathing in holy water.
“At least one Methodist minister openly does not believe Jesus rose from the dead.”
Another one of the Sanhedrin is off the reservation trying to pull the herd back?
possibly even a handbill.......
