"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;" (I Corinthians 1:27)
I received an e-mail today from my close friend Ed Duddy in Texas. It was a "forward" from a friend of his. According to this e-mail, Sarah Palin grew up in an Assemblies of God church in Wasilla, Alaska and attends an Assemblies of God church in Juneau, AK. If she IS elected, this will be the highest U.S. governmental position ever attained by a person who attends an Assemblies of God church.
In the Reagan era, Secretary of the Interior, James Watt attended an Assemblies of God church. He was very controversial and probably ended up bringing the Assemblies of God as much bad publicity as good publicity. In more recent times, active Assemblies of God layman John Ashcroft, was Attorney General during George W. Bush's first term. Ashcroft's Dad was the first President of Evangel College (now Evangel University) our AG "university of Arts and Sciences" in Springfield, Missouri. Ashcroft was at least as controversial as James Watt was.
For you non-Assemblies of God people, I'm sorry I just put you to sleep, but for you fellow "AG people", I thought you'd find the information about Sarah Palin interesting!
Some said the country wasn't ready for a Mormon President. Is it ready for a Pentecostal Vice-President?
When Did We?
