Biblical Scholars Challenge Pelosi's 'Scripture' Quote
Pete Winn
Senior Staff Writer

(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is fond of quoting a
particular passage of Scripture. The quote, however, does not appear in the
Bible and is "fictional," according to biblical scholars.

In her April 22 Earth Day news release, Pelosi said, "The Bible tells us in
the Old Testament, '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.' On this
Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children's
children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink,
and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature."

Cybercast News Service repeatedly queried the speaker's office for two days
to determine where the alleged Bible quote is found. Thus far, no one has
responded.

Distinguished biblical scholars, however, cast doubt on the existence of the
passage.

John J. Collins, the Holmes professor of Old Testament criticism and
interpretation at Yale Divinity School, said he is totally unfamiliar with
Pelosi's quotation.

"(It's) not one that I recognize," Collins told Cybercast News Service. "I
assume that she means this is a paraphrase. But it wouldn't be a close
paraphrase to anything I know of."

Claude Mariottini, a professor of Old Testament at Northern Baptist
Theological Seminary, told Cybercast News Service the passage not only
doesn't exist - it's "fictional."

"It is not in the Bible," Mariottini said. "There is nothing that even
approximates that."

Other scholars agree that nothing remotely resembling it can be found in any
version of the Scriptures - Old Testament or New Testament.

"The quote does not exist in the Old Testament, neither in the New
Testament," said the Rev. Andreas Hock, a doctor of Scripture who teaches in
the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Denver's St. John Vianney Seminary.

"Even in pieces or bits, (it) cannot be found in the Old Testament," he
added.

Interestingly, Pelosi has mentioned the quote before, Mariottini noted.

"In truth, (she) has used this 'passage' in many different ways, and all of
those usages have nothing to do with the Bible whatsoever," he said.

Indeed, Cybercast News Service has learned that Pelosi has repeatedly used
the quote:

-- In December 2005, in a Christmas message to the U.S. House of
Representatives, Pelosi said: "Mr. Speaker, as we leave for this Christmas
recess, let us say, 'God bless you' to the American people by voting against
this Republican budget and statement of injustice and immorality, and let us
not let the special interest goose get fat at the expense of America's
children.

"The gentleman from Washington [state], Mr. McDermott, quoted the prophet
Isaiah. And as the Bible teaches us, 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. Let us vote no on this budget as an act of worship and for
America's children."

-- On Feb. 8, 2007, in remarks before the U.S. House Science and Technology
Committee, when it held hearings on global warming, she used the same quote,
verbatim, as in her Earth Day release.

-- On April 6, 2007, in congressional remarks before the Easter recess: "In
this Holy Week, we are reminded of these words in the Old Testament: '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.' We must move quickly to
honor God's creation by reducing greenhouse gas pollution in the United
States and around the world."

-- On April 25, 2007, in a speech to the League of Conservation Voters in
Washington, D.C.: "We are now charging ahead to tackle one of humanity's
greatest challenges yet - global warming. We will do this because we hold
our children's future in our hands - not our grandchildren, or
great-grandchildren, but our own children. "As it says in the Old Testament,
'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.'"

-- On Oct. 22, 2007, in a television interview with PBS host Tavis Smiley,
she used it in discussion of her roots, attributing the quote to the book of
Isaiah: "I'm raised in a family in Baltimore, Maryland, my father was the
mayor. He was in Congress when I was born. And we were devoutly Catholic,
very patriotic. We love America. Devoutly Catholic, deeply patriotic, proud
of our Italian American heritage, and in our case, staunchly Democratic.

"And that faith was related to our Democratic values. That is to say, the
gospel of Matthew: 'When I was hungry, you gave me to eat.' You know, the
least of our brethren. So that's an inspiration in the New Testament. In the
Old Testament, Isaiah says, '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.'"

Mis-remembered? Mis-paraphrased?

Is Pelosi's alleged quote merely an attempt to express a biblical principle
about man's need to care for the environment? The scholars differed slightly
on that question, but none believe the case for environmentalism comes
directly form Scripture, as Pelosi indicated.

Eric Jenislawski, a professor at Virginia's Christendom College, said that
the Bible teaches in Genesis that man was placed on earth "to till it and
keep it" (Genesis 2:15). But just a few verses earlier, he pointed out, God
also commanded man "to fill the earth and subdue it" (Genesis 1:28).

"Responsible use of the Old Testament cannot divorce the biblical notion of
stewardship (that man is obligated to care for God's creation) from the
equally important biblical view that the entire natural world was created
for man, for him to subdue it and to reign over it," Jenislawski said.

"Environmentalists who make man subservient to the natural world actually
invert the biblical view of man's relationship to the earth," he said.

Collins agreed.

"You can interpret Genesis, Chapter One, in various ways, but I think this
would be going well beyond the text," said Collins.

Mark Goodwin, an associate professor of theology at the University of
Dallas, said Pelosi's quote only reflects a partial Scriptural truth, at
best.

"'To minister to the needs of creation is an act of worship' doesn't sound
right to my ears," Goodwin said. "To minister to the needs of creation'-
yes, but not as an act of worship. I'm not sure what she meant by that, and
if I were there, I would have raised my hand and asked her to clarify that."

Westminster Theological Seminary professor Peter Enns told Cybercast News
Service that there is nothing in the Bible even approaching a proof-text for
Earth Day.

"As wise an idea as it might be to be concerned about the environment, I
think to find a specific biblical anchor in the Old Testament might be
asking things of the Bible it's just not prepared to deliver," Enns said.

"To say that humanity (is the steward) of creation is not so much - in the
ancient world -a statement that the goodness of creation has to be
protected, but more a statement in the Bible of the supremacy of humanity as
the pinnacle of creation," he added.

Mariottini, meanwhile, said he doesn't think Pelosi is either
mis-remembering or mis-paraphrasing.

"People try to use the Bible to give authority to what they are trying to
say," he said. "(This) is one of those texts that you fabricate in order to
support what you want to say."

“Expelled” Promotes Intriguing Intelligent Design Dialogue
Christa Banister
Crosswalk.com Contributing Writer
Release Date: April 18, 2008
Rating: PG (thematic material, some disturbing images and brief smoking)
Genre: Documentary
Run Time: 100 min.
Director: Nathan Frankowski
Actors: Ben Stein, Jason Collett, Richard Dawkins, David Berlinski, Alister
McGrath, William A. Dembski, Stephen C. Meyers, Michael Ruse, Eugenie Scott

Although they probably are about as polar opposite as Hillary Clinton and
George W. Bush are politically, Michael Moore and Ben Stein now share some
common ground as documentarians who’ve faced their fair share of controversy
for their provocative social commentary that’s tailor-made for the big
screen.

But instead of tackling politically charged current events like the state of
health care or whether it’s right (or not) for American soldiers to fight in
Iraq, Stein opts for a somewhat old-school topic with a modern-day spin in
Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

If the age-old public relations maxim is true that “even negative publicity
is good publicity,” than Expelled has that going for it in spades. Not only
have well-known atheists allegedly “crashed” the press screenings, but early
reviews have labeled it everything from “one of the sleaziest documentaries
to arrive in a long time” by the New York Times to “a cynical attempt to
sucker Christian conservatives into thinking they’re losing the intelligent
design debate because of academic prejudice” by the Orlando Sentinel, not
exactly a glowing endorsement.

Of course, the “intelligence” in question here refers to the issue of
intelligent design (ID). For the uninitiated, the argument for I.D. is this:
The innate complexity of a single cell and the organisms that result
inevitably points to some sort of designer, rather than the generally
accepted scientific idea of evolution. For those who may automatically
assume this means that Stein will be hammering home the idea of “biblical
creationism,” however, think again. There’s little mention of the Genesis
creation account in Expelled. Rather, there’s a variety of viewpoints
presented that include everyone from a prominent atheist/biologist Richard
Dawkins, a handful of creationists who also believe in parts of evolutionary
theory, a few evolutionists who ultimately believe in a creator and everyone
in between. And while it’s certainly admirable (and quasi-balanced) to allow
freedom of speech for those on all sides of the issue, it’s still pretty
clear from the get-go what viewpoint the filmmakers are lobbying for.

In fact, the core of the film focuses on a series of high-profile firings
and refusal of tenure to those scientists and educators in the academic
world who dared to consider the validity of I.D. And with the wry, comedic
approach that Moore used in Sicko and Fahrenheit 911, Stein spans the globe
and talks to scientists and philosophers on both sides of the heated debate,
hoping to prove that many have been far too closed-minded in even presenting
I.D. as a reputable option.

Stylistically, the integration of whimsical film footage to further
illustrate his points ups the entertainment value in what could’ve been a
pretty dry subject for the average joe. And if those who would normally
write off something of this ilk as nothing more than conservative,
right-wing rhetoric would be willing to put aside their notions, they may
even be surprised by the provocative dialogue that’s been initiated in
Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

CAUTIONS:

a.. Drugs/Alcohol: None, but some cigarette smoking shown.
b.. Language/Profanity: A couple of mild profanities.
c.. Sex/Nudity: None.
d.. Violence: There is some rather chilling Holocaust footage as piles of
dead bodies are shown when Stein visits Nazi concentration camps.

The Potter's Hands
David Jeremiah
Turning Point

We are, in a literal sense, pottery. We’ve been formed from clay. God
physically shaped Adam from the clay of the earth and breathed into him the
breath of life. We are all humans, a word that is akin to the term humus,
meaning earth or clay. The apostle Paul referred to our bodies as “jars of
clay” (2 Corinthians 4:7 NIV).
But the Bible also tells us that God wants to spiritually fashion us into
vessels fit for His use, molded as images of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The
apostle Paul says God wants to form us into “a vessel for honor, sanctified
and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work” (2 Timothy 2:21).

The patriarch Job concurred: “Your hands have made me and fashioned me . . .
You have made me like clay” (Job 10:8-9). This gives us a biblical warrant
for thinking of the events and influences of our lives as His hands and
fingers, shaping us like a potter shaping clay.

His Hands Form Us
First, God’s hands form us. And, His hands are on your life. He knows how to
skillfully apply pressure, how to relax His grip, how to score your life
with His fingernail, how to squeeze and nudge — all of it designed to make
you a vessel fit for His use. Sometimes He even places us in the kiln where
the fires of life turn us into more solid vessels for His use.
Romans 8:28 says that God works all things for the good of those who love
Him and are called according to His purpose, but the next verse gives us His
purpose: “to be conformed to the image of His Son” (Romans 8:29).

Our heavenly Father wants to use the events we encounter each day as tools
with which to shape and sculpt us into the image of Christ. He wants to
deepen our faith, to develop within us the quality of perseverance, and to
make us watertight containers of His love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).

If you’re under some sort of pressure right now, visualize the skillful
hands of the divine Potter using it for good in your life. Pray as Isaiah
did: “But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our
potter; and all we are the work of Your hand” (Isaiah 64:8). You can trust
His dexterous and expert fingers not to harm, but to help you.

His Hands Are Re-Forming
Sometimes we think we’re unusable, unredeemable. We’ve done something for
which we feel shame and guilt, and we think God can no longer do much with
us. Our problems are occasionally of our own making, and our pain arises
from our own stupidity. But when we bring our sin to the Lord, confess it
earnestly, nail it to the cross of Christ, and surrender it to the power of
His shed blood, God can take our sins and shame and spin them into a design
that glorifies Him.

One night Adelaide Pollard went to church in a state of depression because
she felt God wanted her in Africa as a missionary, but she couldn’t raise
the support. During the prayer meeting, a woman prayed, “It doesn’t matter
what You bring into our lives, Lord. Just have Your own way with us.”

Returning home, Adelaide read the story of the potter and the clay in
Jeremiah 18. By bedtime she had written out a prayer of her own, which today
is the hymn, “Have Thine Own Way.”

Today make it your prayer as you think of the forming and re-forming hands
of the Master Potter who is crafting you and me into vessels of honor, fit
for the Master’s use. Ask God to have His own way in your life as He forms —
and re-forms — you into His wonderful image.

Have Thine own way, Lord, have Thine own way.
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting yielded and still.

David Jeremiah is the founder of Turning Point for God, senior pastor of
Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, Calif., and chancellor of San
Diego Christian College (formerly Christian Heritage College). For more

A Witness to Unity
The Mike Timmis Story
April 24, 2008

As anyone who has read my new book, The Faith, knows, I have a deep passion
to help the Church know what it believes, why it believes it, and how to
defend the basic truths all Christians have held since the Apostolic era.

In it, I have talked a lot about the early Church, when the apostles'
teaching was fresh in the minds of church leaders. Christians stood together
in defense of what they believed, against the open hostility—and sometimes
the lion's den—of the Roman Empire.

The Church, I think, is in a similar situation today. We are not being fed
to the lions in the Coliseum, but we do face very real threats—from militant
atheism to the homicidal maniacs of Islamo-fascism. So we need unity if we
are going to defend and advance the kingdom of God.

That is why I am so excited about a new book titled Between Two Worlds. It
is the moving autobiography of one of my closest friends, Mike Timmis. I was
honored to write the book's foreword.

Growing up in a tough section of Detroit, Mike was raised a devout Catholic.
But it was not until 1983, at a dinner party where some evangelicals gave
their testimonies, that Mike became what he calls himself today: a
Christ-follower. Since then, Mike, a successful businessman, has gone all
over the world, sharing the Gospel and setting up projects to help the poor.
He is one of the most enthusiastic soul-winners I know. He succeeded me some
years ago as the Chairman of the Board of Prison Fellowship International,
and during his tenure, the international ministry has doubled in size, with
ministries in 113 nations.

But not only has Mike done a good job spreading the Gospel, he stands as a
witness to the efforts to help bring the Church together. This year is the
15th anniversary of a group that Fr. Richard Neuhaus and I started called
Evangelicals and Catholics Together. Our goal is not to deny our
differences, but to understand what we both believe in common and to
recognize one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. In the process, we
have discovered areas of agreement we never knew we had.

As I recounted in my book The Faith, we produced a document titled "The Gift
of Salvation," in which we outline how we all agree on what the Protestant
Reformers called sola fide—justification by faith alone. It is a remarkable
document showing remarkable progress. But Mike Timmis and I stand together,
living it. While each of us stands firm in our own faith tradition, we have
learned much from each other, despite our different confessions.

As Mike puts it in Between Two Worlds, "We do not work for unity; we work to
end and erase disunity. Unity is of God; disunity is of man. In matters of
doctrine and practice of conscience, our guide should be this traditional
saying: 'In essentials, unity. In nonessentials, liberty. But in all things,
love.'"

Many of you may have doubts and questions about what I am saying here. That
is okay. I invite you to visit our website, BreakPoint.org, to read more
about Evangelicals and Catholics Together, and I urge you to order a copy of
Mike Timmis's gripping book, Between Two Worlds.

To learn more about the traditions of our fellow believers is not to abandon
our own view. I am a Baptist; I will die that way. Rather, it is the key to
understanding how much we really have in common, and how much we need one
another to defend against those who want to destroy all Christians,
regardless of denomination.

All of us, at one time or another,
have experienced the strange
physiological reaction of zygomatic
stimulation and subsequent larynx
strain.

This strain upsets the respiratory
system, which results in deep,
noisy gasps. The mouth opens
and closes as the lungs struggle
for oxygen.

The struggle for oxygen causes
the face to turn various shades
of red and strange, unique noises
emerge from deep within. What
is this strange, physiological
reaction I am describing?
It is laughter!

We normally associate laughter
with humor. But, gelotology,
the study of laughter, suggests
another trigger for laughter
called the incongruity theory.

This theory suggests that
laughter arises when logic
and familiarity are replaced
by things that don't normally
go together--when we expect
one outcome and another
happens. Generally speaking,
our minds and bodies anticipate
what's going to happen and
how it's going to end based
on logical thought, emotion,
and our past experience.

But, when circumstances go
in unexpected directions, our
thoughts and emotions suddenly
have to switch gears and laughter
emerges out of the tension
between what we expect--and
what actually happens.

"America was born a Christian nation.
America was born to exemplify that
devotion to the elements of righteous -
ness, which are derived from the
revelations of Holy Scriptures.
Part of the destiny of Americans
lies in their daily perusal of this
great book of revelations. That
if they would see America free
and pure they will make their
own spirits free and pure by
this baptism of the Holy Spirit."
--President Woodrow Wilson

For Christians, the life and death
of Jesus are the ultimate expressions
of love, and the supreme demonstrations
of God's mercy, faithfulness, and
redemption. Since Christ's miraculous
Resurrection on Easter, more than
2,000 years ago, Christians have
expressed joy and gratitude for this
wondrous sacrifice and for God's
promise of freedom for the oppressed,
healing for the brokenhearted, and salvation.
--President George W. Bush

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly
or too often that this great nation was
founded, not by religionists, but by
Christians; not on religions, but on
the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this
very reason peoples of other faiths
have been afforded asylum, prosperity,

(free & at no charge to you) of God
(Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is
Eternal Life (Heaven) through
(in union with) Jesus Christ
(God, Lord, 2nd Person of the
Trinity, Messiah, Prince of
Peace & Savior of the World).

3) For God so greatly loved & dearly
prized the world (Americans, Muslims,
Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist,
Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans,
Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons,
Methodist, French, etc.) that
He even gave up His only begotten
(unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone,
anywhere, anytime - while still living)
believes (trust in, relies on, clings to,
depends completely on) Him shall
have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven).

4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH,
& THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American,
Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist,
Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist,
Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French,
etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with
GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through)
ME (no other name).

This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - -

(Rev. 3:20)


{Please note that church membership,
baptism, doing good things, etc. are not
requirements for becoming a Christian -
however they are great afterwards!!!}


Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad
is the road that leads to destruction
(Hell, damnation, eternal punishment),
and many enter through it. But small
is the gate and narrow the road that
leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness,
forever with God), and only a few find it.

P U R P O S E of 'Thought & Humor:

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139


When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts

O God, You have taught me from my
youth; And to this day I declare
Your wondrous works. Now also when
I am old and gray headed, O God,
do not forsake me, Until I declare
Your strength to this generation,
Your power to everyone who is to come.
Ps 71
