Please tell me I didn’t see what I saw on Inside Edition just a few minutes ago. Please don’t tell me the media has stooped so low as to criticize this wonderful Christian woman about “speaking in tongues.” Please tell me they are not drawing comparisons to Senator Obama’s hate-filled former pastor and her. Then, again, it’s kind of expected.
The attacks on this woman have far exceeded what is considered normal journalistic scrutiny – they have sunk to the depths of “sewer politics.” Ask her tough questions, find out where she stands on key issues, but leave her children alone. While listening to Bud Hedinger Live this afternoon, mention was made about an army of 30 lawyers being dropped into Wasilla, Alaska to try their best to dig up dirt on this extraordinary woman. How pathetic!
It seems many on the left have a problem with a candidate who really loves Jesus Christ, and who is not ashamed of that relationship. There is more to these attacks than just an empty political party venting their frustrations and lack of integrity on a rival candidate and her family. No, I believe the enemy is far more hideous and deceiving than the Democratic party ever thought about being.
The enemy I refer to is Satan, the devil, that old serpent, Lucifer, the wicked one. He knows his days are numbered, and has pulled out all the stops. Ultimately, the devil is responsible for attacking Christ, and those who serve Him. As I said, there’s a deeper concern, and that is the repression of anything that puts Jesus and Christianity in a positive light.
There’s more at stake here than an election. Just like the disciples did in the early church, we who believe in Jesus as our Savior, need to pray for boldness to preach the gospel of Christ to a lost and dying world. We need to pray for our country like never before, as we are facing an enemy far more dangerous than left-wing bias and an out-of-control media. Acts 4:29-31 says:
29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. 31 ¶And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
With all her faults and failures, I still believe America is a great nation, and I am thankful to live here. People are free to choose which side of the political spectrum they want to be on and support. We are blessed far more than what we deserve; it is the grace of God that keeps us going. Just one request now:
