Hillary Clinton’s ‘Pastor’ Says Former Presidential Candidate Considering ‘Occasionally’ Preaching

NEW YORK — In speaking to reporters about the upcoming release of his compilation of devotionals written for Hillary Clinton throughout her presidential candidacy, Bill Shillady revealed that Clinton is now considering preaching on occasion as a layperson.

Shillady, who serves as the executive director of the United Methodist City Society and identifies as the pastor of the Clinton family, told reporters this past week that he emailed devotionals to Clinton every day from the time that she announced her candidacy. The devotionals have been compiled into a book entitled “Strong for a Moment Like This,” scheduled to be released on Aug. 15.

“It was really just a movement of the Spirit,” Shillady claimed to the News & Observer. “I didn’t know how difficult the campaign was going to be, or how contentious. I just thought it would help her to have a Scripture, and a meditation on that Scripture, and a prayer each day.”

“She knows the Bible remarkably well, and I think she knows what passages to turn to when she needs inspiration or solace,” he also told CNN. “She reads her Scripture every day. That, for her, is a practice of spiritual discipline. She told me that my email was the first she opened every day and and it helped keep her grounded and centered.”

He said that since losing the presidential election, Clinton has been taking walks in the woods and spending time thinking and praying. When asked if she might be led to the pulpit next, Shillady said that Clinton had actually mentioned that possibility to him.

He noted that United Methodists have a practice of allowing laypersons to speak, and that Clinton is considering that option.

“We were having a photo shoot for the book and chatting about preaching and she said, ‘Bill, I think I’d like to preach,'” Shillady outlined. “In United Methodism, there’s a tradition of having lay people preach from the pulpit, and I think she’s going to look at occasionally doing that and sharing the good news without it being a politically charged environment.”

He further advised on Fox News on Sunday that Clinton will not be seeking ordination.

“She knows her Methodist history. She would be a good expositor of the Bible,” Shilladay opined to the News & Observer. “The way she has advocated for the disenfranchised and the poor in our nation stems from her Methodist upbringing and her understanding of the Methodist heritage of being a member of society and caring for others. And talk about life experience. She could write her own book about that.”

However, many opposed Clinton during the presidential election because her pro-homosexual, pro-abortion beliefs run contrary to the word of God.

“In a nutshell, here’s why I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton,” wrote Bryan Ridenour in 2014 on his blog “America, Look Up.” “I hate the radical departure from holiness that our country continues to take, all while people stand by and cheer our ‘progress.’ God loathes homosexuality (not the homosexual) and yet many in America embrace homosexual marriage. Is God pleased? Ask Sodom and Gomorrah.”

“We slaughter over one million babies per year in the womb. The number’s staggering. Are Christians supposed to remain mum about this tragic court approved holocaust? Is God pleased if we just look the other way? Is God pro-choice?” he asked. “When a candidate idolizes Margaret Sanger and is a darling of Emily’s List, Conservatives need to run, not walk, in the other direction.”

    Hillary may know “Methodist history” but that doesn’t mean she has any ability to be a Bible expositor.

    She supports abortion – God does not.
    She support homosexual acceptance as an alternate lifestyle and homosexual marriage – God does not.
    She supports assisted suicide – God does not.

    If she is so obviously wrong, and opposed to God, with these clearly anti-Biblical stances, how could she ever be expected to speak “as the oracles of God”?

      Jeremiah 1 verse 5 The Lord knows us in the womb. Trump defunded Mexico City late term abortion and lets preachers preach that tax free and elected Pro life Suprem e court judge. Many false prophets in Jeremiah.

    Hillary also campaigned on transgender/unisex restrooms and showers. Also, according to her secret service guards has a terrible temper, throws temper tantrums, and has an affinity for using the F word at her subordinates.

    Nothing surprising about a false teacher promoting another false teacher. Hillary probably figures it will fool people into thinking she’s a Christian, which will help her get elected on her next try.

  • InTheChurch

    Clinton and Carter are the same type of church goers/ preachers, waste of time and anti-God.

  • Garden of Love

    Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian. There is nothing in her life to even suggest that she is remotely Christian. In fact, she’s on the record as stating that Christians should be forced to conform to the acceptance of sexual perversion. If she is a Christian, Satan is a Christian.

    After that story there going to be a mass exodus from the methodist church..

  • sagat

    God can use anyone for his purposes as long as she repents genuinely and renounces her satanic practices and makes a public confession then all will be well

    • InTheChurch

      if she confesses, there goes her platform, money and life’s work.

    Where dear friend is she grounded, and faithful? And faithful to who?
    Definitely not to Jesus, nor to the teachings of God’s word!
    That’s where he said he will know them by their fruit, and believe me the food that she bears is far from the word of God. I love her soul, and pray that she truly comes to know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, but to let her preach at this point in time, is an abomination, as she does not even a walk in the truth, and the Bible says you will know them by their fruit! I don’t mean to be read are hateful but she needs to go back and read the 10 commandments that are written in our hearts, and ask Jesus to change her heart!
    If allowed to preach, without truly giving a hard life to Jesus she will lead manyb
