Someone gave a speech this week about how his faith is “important” to him.

In this attempt to convince the American people that we should consider him for president, he announced that his favorite Bible verse is John 16:3. Of course, the speech writer meant John 3:16 (“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – NIV), but nobody was familiar enough with Scripture to catch the error.

Do you know what John 16:3 really says?

“They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.”

*Note: This error is typically blamed on politicians, but as far as I know, has never been proven. I include it here as ironic fiction.
