Kerry's Testament


Praise the Lord and pass the collection plate!  John Kerry has 'reread' the New Testament! 

"I went back and reread the whole New Testament the other day. Nowhere in the three—year ministry of Jesus Christ did I find a suggestion at all, ever, anywhere, in any way whatsover, that you ought to take the money from the poor, the opportunities from the poor and give them to the rich people," Kerry said.

He read the 'whole' New Testament 'the other day.'  The New Testament is comprised of the four gospels and the additional writings of Luke, Paul, Peter, James, Jude and John.  Luke wrote the Acts of The Apostles.  Paul wrote the book of Romans and two letters each to the Corinthians and Thessalonians; two letters to Timothy; one letter each to the Galatians and Philippians.  He also wrote Titus, Philemon and Hebrews (though this book does not directly identify an author).  Peter wrote two letters; James and Jude, one a piece.  John wrote three letters and the Book of Revelations. 

That's a lot to study.  Did Kerry glean anything else from his day of reading?

Why didn't he go back and read the Old Testament?

To save time, he could have simply used a Bible Concordance to search for the passage he wanted. 

What is this reference to the 'three—year ministry of Jesus Christ'?  Is Kerry saying that we all need to live exactly as Jesus says in the Holy Bible? 

Did Kerry just cheat and read only the passages in red (the words of Jesus)?  If so, Kerry should know now, there is forgiveness for sin.

On a serious note, using the Bible for one's own political ambition and agenda is worse than flushing it down the toilet.  In fact, I rather you flush it.  At least then, you see what you're doing with the Word demonstratively.
