God’s candidate prevailsNovember 5, 2008 — Deacon Duncan
Sarah Palin told Dr. James Dobson of “Focus on the Family” that she is confident God will do “the right thing for America” on Nov. 4.
Dobson asked the vice presidential hopeful if she is concerned about John McCain’s sagging poll numbers, but Palin stressed that she was “not discouraged at all.”
“To me, it motivates us, makes us work that much harder,” she told the influential Christian leader, whose radio show reaches millions of listeners daily. “And it also strengthens my faith because I know at the end of the day putting this in God’s hands, the right thing for America will be done, at the end of the day on Nov. 4.”
It’s nice to see that at least someone on the Republican side can still make predictions that come true. God has spoken, and we do indeed have the right man heading for the White House.Needless to say, not many conservative Christians are going to count this one as evidence that God intervenes in human affairs, which kind of goes along with the rigged scorekeeping we were talking about yesterday. It’s like prayer: you put your hopes and dreams out as things you expect from God, and if you get what you hoped for, it counts as a win and as evidence of God. If you don’t, well, that one doesn’t count.
Ok, it’s your turn to be the prophet. Who do you think Christians are going to blame for McCain’s loss? Somebody has to be a scapegoat for God’s failure to deliver.
