During the Clinton administration, Senator Kerry attended a prayer breakfast featuring Billy Graham, where the senator read a carefully edited portion of Scripture.
“Senator Kerry read Jn:3:1-21 (skipping verse 16) and said Christ was speaking of ‘spiritual renewal’ and that ‘in the spirit of Christ Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Jew, Christian’ were meeting and ‘there is renewal with a new President and Vice President.’ Billy Graham added, ‘I do not know a time when we have had a more spiritual time than we’ve had today.’” (Billy Graham and His Friends, by Dr. Cathy Burns, page 19)
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you (2 Corinthians:6:14-17).
