One For Him and One for Me

An old Bible of mine was sitting there and I decided to just open it up and gain whatever wisdom it would yield for my daily edification. Well, it opened right up to a section that had been torn out ) :

On the one side I was in was Psalms and what I read I wish I could ask our President to read and if he really is a Christian to base what he thinks is best for our country upon and obey himself. On the other side was Isaiah (it was a rather large swath of pages torn asunder) and I saw a passage for me, my friends, and actually for everybody in this world.

First: Psalm 119 Samech

SAMECH. I hate [vain] thoughts: but thy law do I love.

119:114 Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

119:115 Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.

119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.

119:117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.

119:118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit [is] falsehood.

119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth [like] dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.

119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.

And then for me and my friends and everyone else in the world:
Isaiah 40:31

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.

What a thoughtful, insightful,well laid out response. I think your detailed rebuttal lost me somewhere. Where is the hypocrasy?Funny how the anonymous commentators have the big balls. Show your face chickenshit !

Brother Dan please MYOB. If your brother doesn't want readers to be able to practice free speech, he should eliminate the comment portion. Maybe instead of shooting your mouth off, brother Dan, you should learn how to spell (hypocrisy). Maybe you looked it up in the urban dictionary...oh well. All I was saying was simply.....practice what you preach. Judge not lest ye be judged.......Matthew 7:1-6

Someday we will all stand before the judgement seat, right? And How would you know if I am a hypocrite or not? Did you actually read the scripture? Is what I copied from the bible somehow more convicting to you, or to Obama? And because I would ask the President to be a man of God is that grievous? He is after all leading US right into possible judgement by God, Nations get judged too, don't forget.

Shooting your mouth off Anon is what you seem to be doing. Free speech means something where the law is concerned, but here it really means you are free to put in your 2 cents, for what it's worth...
I'd give you about 2 cents.

Whatever ZERO. Yes we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. As a matter of fact I did read the scriptures. Why would I make a comment to you without even reading the scriptures? As far as the president is concerned, I feel he is paving the way for the anti-christ. Furthermore, I am sorry you were the one convicted by my comment, however that is between you and God.

Whats your point? Whats your problem?
To what end are you coming here and insulting me?

You cant even make a decent case for whatever it is you are calling me out on.

I think you would make a comment without reading it because you were totally off topic, I was talking about the psalm I posted psalm 119 Samech to the end. What part of that was I being hypocritical? You don't even know me... or do you? Your personal taunts and insults posit an axe to grind and convict nothing but the empty blatherings you are wasting here make me wonder who the hell you are.
