I don’t know if the Soros puppets at his Media Matters are Christians, but I have my doubts. During yesterday’s National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama shared this passage from Isaiah 40:31:
“Those who wait on the Lord will soar on wings like eagles, and they will run and not be weary, and they will walk and not faint,” the president said during a speech to several thousand people at the breakfast.
Fox Nation caught this:
But the actual passage, from Isaiah 40:31, states: “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
In a post titled “Attention Fox Nation: There Is More Than One Version Of The Bible,” Ben Dimiero tried to get into an argument with Fox Nation over different versions of the Bible:
Obama was quoting from the New International Version, while Fox Nation was pointing to the King James Version to “debunk” him.
Then Dimiero gets nasty:
This would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic.
Most likely, they won’t bother to correct their story, and their goal will be accomplished: the readers that trust them will remember the time Obama “misquoted” the Bible, some more people will question the authenticity of Obama’s faith, and the smear machine will move on.
What’s pathetic is some dork at Media Matters trying to argue something he knows nothing about. Here’s Isaiah 40:31 from the NIV Bible from the link provided by Media Matters:
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Obama misses the point of the first part of the verse where it talks about renewing strength. Plus, in that part of the verse, the King James Version uses the word “wait” while the NIV uses the word “hope”. It’s possible Obama could have pulled his quote from some other version of the Bible Media Matters probably doesn’t know about (the exact words Obama used don’t show up in that verse in any version listed here), or Obama took something akin to “artistic license” and reworded it for effect. If Obama truly is a Christian and still did do the latter, he could very well run into problems down the road, as specified in Revelation 22:18-19 in the NIV Bible:
18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll.
19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.
In any event, Media Matters would do well to avoid getting into arguments with anyone about the Bible since they clearly don’t know what’s in it.
And as far as Obama being a Christian or a Muslim, let me leave you with the wise words of the great Ann Coulter:
The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist.
