June 8, 2015 Broadcast – Jesus Hypocrites
Jesus was a merciful guy, but he didn’t have much patience for hypocritical leaders like we have in Washington.
Politics is filled with modern day “Pharisees.” They say one thing and hope you forget they did another.
Take Republican House Leader John Boehner – he’s against raising the debt ceiling – now! But here’s something you didn’t know: When George W. Bush was President, Boehner voted to increase the debt ceiling 5 times and increased the national debt $4 trillion dollars! Suddenly when Democrat Barack Obama became President, Boehner opposed increasing the national debt.
There’s a saying, “if you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything.” Jesus was willing to forgive and forget. But when it comes to hypocrites like Boehner, he might not be so accepting.
