Sen. Rand Paul on Obama: 'What Version of the Bible Is He Reading?'


Sen. Rand Paul

Speaking Saturday night at an event sponsored by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky expressed surprise that President Barack Obama would say that his support for same-sex marriage was rooted in the Bible.

"What version of the Bible is he reading?" Paul said.

"“The president recently weighed in on marriage," Paul told the crowd at the Point of Grace Church in Waukee, Iowa. "And, you know, he said his views were evolving on marriage. Call me cynical but I wasn’t sure that his views on marriage could get any gayer. Now it did kind of bother me, though, that he used the justification for it in a biblical reference. He said the biblical Golden Rule caused him to be for gay marriage. ...

In the near future, many pastors you thought were saved will turn out to be non-Christian, especially if same-sex marriage becomes the law of the land.

Mike "When was the last time an adulterer or fornicator went to court to get adultery/fornication taught as a civil right in school?"

This is right on. And I think the answer is never.

Senator Paul gave a rational comment, and of course a good Bible such as the NASB clearly points out homosexuality is wrong, The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin.

grace greater than all our sin wrote:
They are trying to sort through historic heterosexual marriage, a modern divorce plague, a new adultery avalanche, a current fornication pandemic and straining their heads back to see how in the world repentance & grace could ever cover this immense (and growing) mountain of heterosexual Christian sin. And if Jesus' grace is truly this expansive, surely there's a way for His amazing grace to even cover the homosexual's sins.
He's conflating sin and grace:
If Christian divorce and remarriage don't place a repentant Christian in a perpetual state of adultery, then Obama might argue, once repentant homosexuals are legally married, they would no longer be in a perpetual state of fornication (nor stigmatized), but could also receive Christ's grace and forgiveness. Then, he could tell Malia and Sasha that the homosexual parents at their little evangelical school are also loving, forgiven Christians just like the Obamas.

They don't go to evangelical school, but that's ok.

How would you define a "repentant homosexual"? Repentant of what?

When was the last time an adulterer or fornicator went to court to get adultery/fornication taught as a civil right in school?

I like Rand Paul and his response as he isn't afraid to confront Obama and his anti-Christian interpretation of Scripture. Obama needs to hear that his theology is unbiblical - perhaps he'll examine his heart and realize he really doesn't know the Jesus of the Bible.

Rand has it wrong especially suggesting that Obama's "views on marriage couldn't get any gayer." Obama would be simply lost trying to put the ancient text -- if he's reading it -- into the modern context.

It's not a KJV, NASB vs. The Message debate:

They are trying to sort through historic heterosexual marriage, a modern divorce plague, a new adultery avalanche, a current fornication pandemic and straining their heads back to see how in the world repentance & grace could ever cover this immense (and growing) mountain of heterosexual Christian sin. And if Jesus' grace is truly this expansive, surely there's a way for His amazing grace to even cover the homosexual's sins.

He's conflating sin and grace:

If Christian divorce and remarriage don't place a repentant Christian in a perpetual state of adultery, then Obama might argue, once repentant homosexuals are legally married, they would no longer be in a perpetual state of fornication (nor stigmatized), but could also receive Christ's grace and forgiveness. Then, he could tell Malia and Sasha that the homosexual parents at their little evangelical school are also loving, forgiven Christians just like the Obamas.

What if it turns out that Obama is just a garden-variety Christian trying to make sense of this mess?

"And I'm like: What version of the Bible is he reading?" said Paul. "It’s not the King James version"

The "Vote Democrat Version"
Which instructs the Democrat party on convincing the voters to believe in and proselytize to them instead of God.
