[Ed. – Even if it were in the Bible, how does her position on abortion square with the desire ‘o minister to the needs of God’s creation’?]
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), while speaking to a group of Christian university presidents last week, quoted her favorite Bible verse — which doesn’t actually appear in the Christian Scriptures.
While discussing vital humanitarian issues like immigration, Pelosi said in her opening statement: “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.”
Preceding her quote, Pelosi admitted she has been unable to locate the verse in the Bible, although she claimed it can be found “someplace,” suggesting in the book of Isaiah. However, the verse is not located in Isaiah, or anywhere else in the biblical canon for that matter.
It’s not clear where the quote originated. Pelosi attributed it to a “bishop,” whom she did not identify.
