Uh oh, there’s a skeleton in Palin’s closet: She’s a Pentecostal!

You’ve probaby already seen this stuff all over the web and tv:

Wasila, Alaska (CNN) — For more than two decades, vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin was a practicing Pentecostal.

Gov. Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin asked church members to pray for $30 billion natural gas pipeline in Alaska.

 She belonged to the Wasilla Assembly of God church in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. But though she attended the church from her teenage years to 2002, the Alaska governor hasn’t talked much about her religion since joining the Republican ticket.

Palin’s former pastor, Tim McGraw, says that like many Pentecostal churches, some members speak in tongues, although he says he’s never seen Palin do so. Church member Caroline Spangler told CNN, “When the spirit comes on you, you utter things that nobody else can understand … only God can understand what is coming out of our mouths.”

Some Pentecostals from Assembly of God also believe in “faith healing” and the “end times” — a violent upheaval that they believe will deliver Jesus Christ’s second coming….

The McCain campaign says the governor doesn’t consider herself Pentecostal.

So there it is.  Better keep your eye on her.  She might speak in tongues. (Though no one has actually seen her do it – thank God).  Sure glad the Apostles Peter and Paul didn’t try to run for political office!  Those guys even raised the dead.  Talk about faith healing.

Let’s face it: the supernatural claims of the Bible are laughed at by mainstream political society today.

However, if you are a true Christian, by biblical definition that is, then you believe that not only did a man, Jesus Christ, die on the Cross for your sins, but that God raised this man from the dead and he is now sitting on an actual throne in heaven, in a glorified human body, and He will come to earth again and judge everyone.  Whoa.

That’s what real Christians believe.  That’s pretty much supernatural, don’t you think?

Don’t apologize for it Gov. Palin.  It’d be better to keep your testimony than to sit in the Whitehouse.  Maybe it’s possible to do both.  We’ll see.
