Shakespeare nailed this in Richard III, in Act 3, Scene 7. They want to talk to Richard, who has already spent the first two acts betraying and murdering his way to the throne. But they are told they can’t see him because
“He is within, with two right reverend fathers, divinely bent to meditation, and in no worldly suits will he be moved to draw him from his holy exercise.”
Fast-forward to 2017, and the publication of Strong for a Moment Like This: the Daily Devotionals of Hillary Rodham Clinton, who seems to think of herself as some kind of latter-day Esther. She wrote the forward. The book was organized by Clinton family pastor Dr. Bill Shillady, who shills for the lady. It contains 365 daily devotions “written by men of the cloth” (http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/06/07/pastors-daily-devotions-written-for-hillary-rodham-clinton-published-she-wrote-the-foreward/)–right reverend fathers, even.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this the same Hillary Clinton who has said that Christianity “must change” to embrace abortion and homo pseudomarriage? The same Hillary Clinton who has skated over more criminal scandals than Hans Brinker skated over frozen ponds?
Naah. She is within, divinely bent to meditation.
Far be it from us to spurn anyone’s devotions. But I think we know hypocrisy when we see it, especially when it looms as high as high Olympus. This is Mount Hypocrisy, climbed all the way to the top by only a favored few.
Let the devotions be judged on their own merits. God will judge Hillary on hers. Maybe she’ll repent and be saved.
And maybe not.
