“Am still looking for Mathew 17:29, who has found it.”
Deputy President William Ruto is in the middle of criticism after confidently quoting a nonexistent verse in the Bible during an interview last night has left netizens questioning his truth and the Bible he reads.
Deputy president has been famously connected to wrong bible quotes it not being the first time after a video of him holding the bible upside down.
Ruto quoted the verse while explaining how the disciples of Jesus asked him what he has for them given that they had left what they were doing for a living and followed him.
Ruto quoted Mathew 17:29 while Mathew Chapter 17 has only 27 verse and quotes. “Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?” The mix up quote was largely followed by Citizens and Charity Ngilu reacted on her post. “Mathew Chapter 17 ends at 27. Praise God.” She quoted.
While asking forgiveness from President Uhuru Kenyatta for any wrong doings he committed during their regime, he was at it again.
This time he went ahead to misquote the good book of Isaiah.
“The Bible says in Isaiah 1:18, We have fallen short of His glory. To all I may have wronged, I ask for your forgiveness, and all those who have wronged me, I forgive them with a clean heart,” Ruto stated.
The quotes on that day while he was asking for forgiveness was from Romans and not Isaiah.
Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool,” reads Isaiah 1.18.
Does the deputy president read a different bible or is it a common confusion?
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Mathew 7:21
