GIVING HUMBLE THANKS TO GOD!
Ashcroft Confirmation Highlights Dilemma
"He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, saying, 'Touch not My anointed, and do my prophets no harm'" (1 Chr 16:21-22).
Attorney General John Ashcroft was sworn into office yesterday after the Senate confirmed his nomination by President Bush by a vote of 58-42. Ashcroft's Christian character and experience make him one of the most qualified persons in history to hold his office. This was an epic victory for God-fearing Americans and an occasion that calls for abundant PRAISE and THANKGIVING to God! But this great victory was eclipsed by several important facts:
--Ashcroft was subjected to one of the most wicked, if not the most wicked, bigoted, hypocritical and unjust political lynchings in American history.
--Senate Democrats have put Pres. George Bush on notice that they can be as dishonest, unfair and wicked as they want to be and that they will wield their power to say "NO" as they please. Furthermore, the Republican majority (with the VP's vote) is extremely fragile.
Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-SC), now 98, is extremely frail. If he should be incapacitated for any reason a Democrat will replace him (appointed by South Carolina's Democrat governor) and Democrats will control the Senate. Christians must fervently pray for God to preserve Sen. Thurmond and other aging Conservatives and to sovereignly convert and/or remove liberal Democrats. Otherwise, what we have just seen will become the status quo but with worse results.
