I bet he never imagined when he was on the front lines of the civil rights movement that on the day of his funeral he would have 3 United States Presidents eulogize him. This man, like all men, had his flaws but his life was one of service to his people, his country and his God.

Lots of these speeches were very well spoken, unlike many comments I am reading, shaming his life despite his true patriotism.

Love you John. You are the person who creates a new generation of fighters. We'll fight. ❤

Another good hearted former leader to add to Clinton and Obama. Whether you liked him or not, he was a good person, and had humanity and a heart which he expressed for John Lewis. Thank God the Cheating Cheeto was not invited.

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
‭‭-Romans‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭. ‘His’ name is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Without this name there is no hope. I am shocked that all day in a church we did not here this powerful name. Nor did we here about the power of His Cross as our hope and refuge. I love all that was said. All the speakers and singers were so inspiring. I am prayerful for the the peaceful rest of our beloved John Lewis. May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ hold his precious souls in His bosom with the Saints. Glory be to God forever. Amen+++

When I first heard the news of John Lewis cancer, I told my daughter that it will be a sad day when he dies and that day came. I felt a knot on my chest and I cried because I was honored to have met him when I was in high school. He embraced everyone from all walks of life.

obama is cowardly to foreign countries, wherever I go, I bow my head and apologize, but bared her fangs and clawed at the people in the country, sitting in meetings with the cabinet, I kept resting my feet on the table to prove that I was in the supreme power.
The smart home market, young people.

"A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will ROUTINELY LIE to them and FABRICATE A REALITY contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the Police State Dictatorship it’s going to get."

Its a sad thing to see this remarkable man go, but it is great for the men and women present to acknowledge that this country is all of our home and that men and women from all ethnicities, religions, and orientations have fought to make it what it is today and what it can become - a more perfect union.

For all of you, yes you, working hard to protect freedom, I want to say “thank you.”

This nation is filled with people doing the right thing and standing up for what is right.

No mater your political affiliation, you matter.

Get out and vote and let’s help usher in the more perfect union for which so many have lived and died.

Thank you, Mr. Lewis!

All the way!

This funeral ceremony of the late John Robert Lewis, coming just after the racist brutal murder of the late George Floyd, gives hope that one day this great country called the United States of America will become a free country for all its citizens. Free in the sense that even African-Americans will live without the fear of being lyinched, murdered, by the racist white policemen. We appreciate the presence (at the funeral) of the former USA presidents: George Bush, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama. May GOD bless all those who attended the funeral ceremony as well as those prayed for ceremony without being physically at the site.

Surprising that Clinton would use this occasion to thank Clyburn, with a chuckle, for taking down Bernie Sanders "with a stroke of a hand." (5:38)

Only In LORD JESUS I Trust!
Only In LORD JESUS I Trust!:
Titus‬ ‭2:13-14‬ ‭KJV‬‬
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”


John‬ ‭3:3, 5-7‬ ‭NKJV
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’”
‭‭‬‬

John‬ ‭14:6-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.””
‭‭

‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:22-23‬ ‭CEB‬‬
“Who is the liar? Isn’t it the person who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This person is the antichrist: the one who denies the Father and the Son.

Everyone who denies the Son does not have the Father, but the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.”


John‬ ‭3:14-18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,

that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

“He who believes in Him is not condemned;

but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

Terrell Spivey
Terrell Spivey:
No mention of salvation thru Jesus Christ...well I'll offer it
But what does it say? “The word is near you , in your mouth and in your heart ”--that is, the word [the message, the basis] of faith which we preach-- because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart a person believes [in Christ as Savior] resulting in his justification [that is, being made righteous--being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God]; and with the mouth he acknowledges and confesses [his faith openly], resulting in and confirming [his] salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] will not be disappointed [in his expectations].” For there is no distinction between Jew and Gentile; for the same Lord is Lord over all [of us], and [He is] abounding in riches (blessings) for all who call on Him [in faith and prayer]. For “ whoever calls on the name of the Lord [in prayer] will be saved .”

Thought I'd be honest here: The other version of this video edited with only Obama's speech has comments turned off, and I wonder why that is duh. Everybody I know here in Holland, the UK & everything I see online is condemning Obama & rightly so. Disgusting beyond belief. I'm staying polite here out of respect for John Lewis but believe me Obama has lost a huge part of respect & likeability. Now I'm campaigning harder than ever to convince as many as possible that voting for the Democrats is a vote for evil. Thanks.
