Romney Assails 47 Percent of Americans?

It really baffles me at the ignorance of people, and how quick they jump on a bandwagon of lies without even stopping to understand what is being said. I am referring to the constant use of this Romney quote about the 47% that is being used as a sound-byte and then twisted to imply things it is not even coming close to saying in the original context.

First off let me say, I am in no way a fan or supporter of Romney. However, the way this clip is being abused is just so evil and deceptive, and so many people seem to be falling for it (obviously the intent from those abusing it), and it is the utter ignorance of people who misunderstand it that is what frustrates me enough to comment. So let's get right into it.

Lord's Supper Devotion: Hope in God

The men at church take turns giving a little devotional before the Lord's Supper/prayer time each week. Here is one I recently presented that I thought I'd share.

I would like to read and examine a few words of wisdom from Psalm 78:

(1-4) Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth! I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old, things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.
