Sometimes the words we speak come back to haunt us. Words, once spoken, cannot be unspoken. For people who are ever in the “media limelight” things said long ago can be a significant problem when they re-enter the spotlight.
Hillary Clinton may decide to make a run for the White House in 2016. If so, undoubtedly her words to a Congressional Committee yesterday will be used against her. The quote will be short a couple of words, but, hey, that politics.
“Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk last night who decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.” (Yahoo News)
A lot of people in the World believe that what they believe “doesn’t make any difference.” One believes one thing about salvation, another believes something else. Some will say, “We all worship the same God – just with a different name.” “One ‘holy’ book is as good as another.” “I am piling up enough good works to get me to Heaven.”
The Truth matters. Jesus said, “I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
Believe me – it makes a difference what you believe!
