Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) tweet of a biblical passage about secrets could come back to haunt her, critics predicted.
On Wednesday, the conspiracy theory-endorsing lawmaker shared Luke 8:17, which in the Bible’s New King James Version reads: “For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.”
“For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17

Tweeters mockingly suggested Boebert ― a Donald Trump acolyte who often self-owns on the social media platform ― may have been talking about her alleged involvement in the planning of the Jan. 6 insurrection, as reported by Rolling Stone on Sunday. Boebert denied the report.
Other detractors proposed what they suggested were more suitable Bible verses.
I wish lawmakers wouldn’t invoke scripture 🙄
Shame that separation of church and state doesn’t apply to them.

Proverbs 6:16-19 – For there are six things the Lord hates—no, seven: haughtiness, lying, murdering, plotting evil, eagerness to do wrong, a false witness, sowing discord among brothers.
Is your soul clean Rep? Think on it tonight…

So you must be talking about the events of January 6.
And you are right.

So, you’re saying your role on 01.06.2021 will come to light?

Good choice of quote. I hope you read it.
And lawyer up.

Titus 1:16 “They claim to know God, but they deny him by what they do. They are detestable, disobedient, and unfit to do anything good”

So you support the January 6 Bipartisan Committee investigating the Insurrection

Of course scripture in the mouth of the snake still sounds like hissing. https://t.co/OqxRXwUeLq

Love this. Does this represent acceptance that what you did is going to come to light soon?
If so, we'll pray for it to turn out as best it can for you and pray the judges will have compassion and understanding. 🙏

This is hilarious. First, that you think tweeting a Bible verse makes you a “Christian” (no more than standing in a garage makes you a “car”).
Second, looking forward to you learning the truth of sad verse the hard way.

Remember this verse when all the details of January 6th “come to light”!

Totally true. You’re in trouble.

So, is this passage some kind of cryptic message admitting your involvement with Jan 6th?
