And how important is religion to Joe Biden?
In Promises to Keep, Joe Biden wrote about the importance of his religion:
"My idea of self, of family, of community, of the
wider world comes straight from my religion. It's not so much the Bible, the
beatitudes, the Ten Commandments, the sacraments, or the prayers I learned. It's
the culture."(Joe Biden, Promises to Keep, 2007)
Joe Biden's "religion"
is a creation of
"the culture." By his own admission, Joe
Biden's religion is based "not so much"
on the Bible, which God closed (see
New Testament Manuscripts) with this stern warning:
"For I testify to everyone who hears the
words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add
to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from
the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the
Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this
book." (Revelation 22:18-19)
And regarding a religion based on "the culture"
instead of the Words of Christ, the Bible adds:
"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow
and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic
principles of this world rather than on Christ." (Colossians 2:8)
