Left vs. Right


Another chuckle du jour.  A friend sent this.
_______________________________

I have often wondered why it is that the conservatives are called “right” and the liberals are called “left.”

By chance stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:  Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)

The heart of the wise inclines to the right, 
But the heart of the fool to the left.

Yep, that’s it!

  5. Sure nice to know God is on our side, which no doubt is why atheists, trolls and evolutionists are so hateful and miserable! I'm also going to use that Bible verse as my e-mail signature line.

  6. I am a Bible based Christian who votes independent, the Bible I read says we are not to judge and it also says: These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

    17A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

    18An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

    19A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
    The fight between right and left is NOT Biblical. Our fellow Americans are not our enemies.
    After voting RIGHT for many years, keep in mind my cousin is a Republican Senator and my daughter's head injury and the political climate in Denver surrounding the mentally ill and law enforcement, I have done almost a complete 180. I live conservative but I cannot serve money and God at the same time. Please remember that there are LOTS of Christian Democrats, they are our brothers. I know what the books says about that.
