And good discernment skills completely elude Republicans…
Be the Christian you claim to be Herschel, and simply tell the truth…
We deceive others with our words, the ones we speak and omit. Lying is the most convenient option, but what does Jesus Christ say about lying? Those who live in the Kingdom of God are truth-tellers. We need to commit to telling the truth, for it is essential to building authentic community and relationships.
What does Jesus teach about telling the truth? And about human deception from the sermon on the mount….’do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.’
You go into a courtroom and before you can testify you place your hand, traditionally, on the Bible, and you raise your other hand, and you say, “I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God.” Why is it necessary for people to swear oaths? Because people lie…We lie to get out of trouble. All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
We lie to get elected to the Senate.
We lie about almost anything. We want to speak the truth, but we’re prepared to lie if we think it’s necessary.
The reason we need oaths is that people are deceptive. They twist words or they omit things or they manipulate or they massage or they shade.
Jesus says, “I want you to become another kind of person. I want you to become the kind of person who says, ‘Here’s the way it is. This is what happened.
This is what I plan to do.’”
You simply speak the truth.
Of course a pos like Newt Gingrich is in support of a pos like Herschel Walker ALL pos have to stick together…
Is’s simply who Republicans Are…
Esquire features an interview with Marianne Ginther, the second wife of perennial Republican presidential nominee Newt Gingrich. The two were married for more than 18 years, as were Gingrich and his first wife, Jackie Battley. The Ginther and Battley unions each lasted nearly twice as long as his third and current marriage, to former congressional aide Callista Bisek, with whom Gingrich had been having an affair while still married to Ginther. Actually, in a uncomfortable twist, Gingrich first courted Ginther while still married to Battley. If you’re confused, that’s because it’s confusing. For a helpful gloss to the former Speaker of the House’s matrimonial ecstasy and agony, consult our complete guide to Gingrich’s wives.
