Gets Mixed up Quoting his Favorite Bible
Summary of the eRumor: The eRumor says
that Barack Obama tried to demonstrate his commitment to faith during a

enough with scripture to catch the error.
Do you know what John 16:3 really says? "And they will do this because
they have not known the Father nor Me."
The Holy Spirit works in strange ways.
