i believe there is a deep malaise, a spiritual funk, if you will, that infects almost all politicians, and even those who are not overtly political, who go to live in the environs of d.c.. the dems are the primary human source of this spiritual ailment, because they have, by a vast majority, rejected anything to do with God and His ways. what's scary is that the church has been asleep in the light for so long that it looks like it will take a major movement of the Holy Spirit to correct it! these movements are marked in history by periods of deep, dark human depravity, necessary for the human heart to see it's condition, follow by massive revival. we haven't seen that level of depravity here, yet, but it appears to be growing. to use the title of an old book, satan is alive and well on planet earth, and he will use anybody who is foolish enough to not have their hearts guarded by God and His Holy Spirit! sorry if this started to sound like a sermon, but it is what's in my mind concerning washington.
