Democrat Nancy Pelosi Keeps Quoting Her Favorite Bible Verse that… Isn’t in the Bible


Not helping dispel the claims that Democrats know nothing about the Bible, Nancy Pelosi keeps reeling off her favorite Bible quote to anyone who will listen. Unfortunately, that quote she loves so much… isn’t in the Bible… anywhere.

The Democrat Speaker of the House of Representatives keeps happily quoting her “favorite” Bible verse, which she says (over and over again) goes a little something like this… “To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”

Well, that sure fits the left-wing, Democrat narrative, huh? Points for the big guy upstairs for giving an assist to the Democrats.

Oh… but wait. There is a tiny little hiccup in Pelosi’s Godliness.

Her quote is not in the Bible.

Not anywhere.

Even the left-wing site, Slate.com, had to admit that Pelosi’s fake religion quote isn’t in the Bible.

According to Slate:

“The Pelosi passage is not in the Bible,” Will Kynes, an associate professor of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament at Whitworth University, told me by email. The closest analog he could find was Proverbs 14:31, which switches the order of the two main ideas and focuses specifically on the poor: ‘Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but those who are kind to the needy honor him.’ Greg MaGee, an associate professor of biblical studies at Taylor University, independently suggested the same verse as the closest approximation of the sentiment in Pelosi’s version.

Slate also discovered that Pelosi really does throw this fake quote around a lot.

“Between 2002 and 2018, the quote appears 12 times in the Congressional Record, with Pelosi responsible for all but one of the entries,” Slate wrote.

Now let’s take a look at these two quotes.

Pelosi’s: “To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”

The real one: “Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but those who are kind to the needy honor him.”

Notice Pelosi’s version is more “big government” than the actual Bible verse. The Bible was only talking about not “oppressing” the poor. On the other hand, Pelosi’s version lumps in all of… well EVERYTHING and anything. So, while the Bible was focusing on helping the poor, Pelosi is warping the verse to make it an excuse to cover every action she wants government to take.

Convenient, huh?

Finally, we must be reminded that Christianity is an individual’s creed, not a blueprint for government action. Remember that whole idea that we should “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what’s God’s”? Yeah, that is about an individual’s creed, not a government scheme.
