Barack Obama Gets Mixed up Quoting his Favorite Bible Verse-Fiction!

Summary of the eRumor:  
The eRumor says that Barack Obama tried to demonstrate his commitment to faith during a speech by quoting his favorite Bible verse.  He meant to refer to John 3:16 but referenced John 16:3 instead, with humorous results.

The Truth:  
This is one of those eRumors that gets circulated every election year...with the name of your least favorite candidate inserted.
It's a hoax and never happened to Barack Obama.

The story has also been spread using the names of John Kerry, Al Gore and George W. Bush.

Christian author Cal Thomas, however, says he was present at a convention in Washington, D.C. when that slip of the lip did occur...but to then President George Bush, not Al Gore.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

Worth thinking about... The Lord has a way of revealing to those of us who really know Him and those that don't!!!

Think about it! Obama gave a big speech last week about how his faith is so "important" to him. In an attempt to convince the American people that we should consider him for president, he said his favorite Bible verse is John 16:3. Of course the speech writers meant John 3:16, but nobody in the Obama camp is familiar enough with scripture to catch the error.


Do you know what John 16:3 really says? "And they will do this because they have not known the Father nor Me."

The Holy Spirit works in strange ways. Pass it on!
