What a banner day it is for the Armies of Christ with Sarah Palin on the ticket.
How far right is her Wasilla Assembly of God church? It’s so freaking far to the right that according to one writer many Evangelicals and Fundamentalists consider it heretical.
Her church is part of a Third Wave movement that believes, among other things, in doing battle with “witches, warlocks and generational curses, which prevent churches from being able to take root.” To accomplish this, a “young generation will form ‘Joel’s Army’ to rise up and battle evil and retake the earth for God [through] the use of ‘strategic level spiritual warfare’ to expel territorial demons from America and world cities.” Recruits for this army were featured in the movie Jesus Camp.
One of their spiritual warfare campaigns was their 1997 “Operation Ice Castle,” in which they entered into battle with the Queen of Heaven, whom they describe as the Great Harlot Mystery Babylon in Revelation. They believe this Queen is Diana, the pagan goddess as manifested in the goddess Mary worshipped by Roman Catholics.
Part of this spiritual warfare involved planting a flag for Jesus on Mt. Everest. The spiritual rewards that emanated from this act of faith were many. They included:
· The destruction of the basilica of Assisi where the Pope had called for a heathen conclave of the world’s religions.
· The destruction of the temple of “Baal-Christ” in Acapulco, Mexico.
· The death of Princess Diana, along with her pagan name.
· The death of Mother Theresa, whom they called, “One of the most heretical advocates of Mary as Co-Redeemer.”
I’m telling you, George, my soul soars whenever I think of Sarah’s spiritual finger on the nuclear trigger.
Armageddon, I hear your footsteps drawing nearer and nearer!
