Pete Buttigieg Quotes Scripture, Again | Prophecy

According to the Christian Post, unrepentant Homosexual Pete Buttigieg quoted from the Book of Proverbs during Tuesday’s Democratic Primary debates in an attempt to shame Christian Conservatives who oppose a $15 minimum wage.

He said:

“And so-called conservative Christian senators right now in the Senate are blocking a bill to raise the minimum wage, when scripture says that whoever oppresses the poor taunts their maker”.

The Christian Post also reported that Buttigieg’s campaign even labeled Vice President Mike Pence a “Pharisee” but stopped using the word because it offended the Jews. Never mind offending Christian conservatives, they're fair game. But don’t you dare offend the Jews. Interesting.

Though Pete didn’t cite the exact verse he was quoting it is likely that he was quoting Proverbs 14:31 “He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker; but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.”

Where is Pete when it comes to the sins of homosexuality and abortion? Why doesn’t he ever quote verses related to that?

I can tell you why. Since he is a homosexual it’s becoming obvious Pete knows he is going to have a hard time getting the Evangelical vote. Thus his strategy is to neutralize us by spinning the scriptures in his favor in order to make it look like he is some kind of a Christian.

Unfortunately this strategy will work on many who claim to be Christian but are Biblically Illiterate. When a leftist like Pete quotes a scripture like he did, they don’t see that he is twisting it to deceive them.

No surprise here because Pete is just following in the footsteps of his daddy – Satan. Do you remember when Jesus went into the wilderness to be tempted of the Devil? What did Satan do in an attempt to deceive Jesus? Satan quoted Scripture.

Howbeit out of context.

Satan didn’t quote the Word of God because He desires to live by it. No way! He only quoted the scripture in an attempt to smokescreen Jesus with it. Of course it didn’t work. Jesus knew exactly what Satan was trying to do, and Jesus came back with scripture himself in order to put the verses Satan quoted back in their proper context.

For instance, Satan told Jesus that if He was the Son of God that scripture says he can just jump off of the pinnacle of the Temple and God’s angels would save Him (See Matt. 4). However Jesus knew that doing so would cause Him to “tempt the Lord”. Though God’s angels protected Jesus throughout His ministry until it was time for him to be crucified, the Father would not have protected Jesus had he jumped off of the pinnacle of the Temple just to prove who he was. That would have been stupid.

Long and short of it is, when a liar like Pete the Sodomite quotes scripture at us, we too need to be able to put the verses back in their proper context.

Just because someone doesn’t support a government mandated minimum wage does not mean they are oppressing the poor. In fact, an increase of the minimum wage like that may actually make more people poor. Increasing the minimum wage can hurt businesses, especially small businesses to the point that they’d have to shut down because they can’t afford to stay open. In fact, virtually every liberal and socialist policy the left promotes actually does the opposite of what they say it does. Look at any city run by leftists? Their policies oppress the poor rather than lift them up out of poverty.

Nevertheless, I can find some specific verses that actually condemn Pete for his statement about raising the minimum wage. The way Pete applied the Proverbs 14:31 totally contradicts the words of Jesus in the Parable of the householder. Check it out and I will explain.

Matthew 20:1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.

Matthew 20:2 And when
he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

Matthew 20:3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,

Matthew 20:4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and
whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.

Matthew 20:5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.

Matthew 20:6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?

Matthew 20:7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.

Matthew 20:8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.

Matthew 20:9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.

Matthew 20:10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.

Matthew 20:11 And when they had received it,
they murmured against the goodman of the house,

Matthew 20:12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.

Matthew 20:13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend,
I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?

Matthew 20:14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.

Matthew 20:15
Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?

The key principle here is that it is “lawful” for any business owner, according to God’s Word, to pay whatever wage he wants to. If the laborer agrees to a certain price then that is fair and just. Oppressing the poor has nothing to do with setting a minimum wage. It has to do with dishonest business practices and things like that.

Sorry Pete. I caught you! You are a liar, just like your father.

Of course anyone who would trust an unrepentant homosexual to accurately quote scripture to them is a fool. Jesus warns us that many deceivers and false prophets are in the world and that the best way to identify them is by their fruits. He says, “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” In other words, are you going to go to Sodomite for the Word of God?

Of course not.
