I believe it. What's also sad is the increasing numbers of people who take pills for mental/emotional problems. Even in our churches a number of adults and children are on medication for ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. It's sad.
Mike, I just meant that these people act all religious during their candidacy in order to get votes. Then when they're in their belief in the sovereignty of God and in righteousness goes right out the window.
Actually I would be happier if she denied God's Hand in the election. I prefer that people be honest.
It seems that with the Purpose Driven Life the quality of Reformed Christian books in general has depreciated considerably. I was at a Reformed Church conference a few years ago and couldn't find one book I even wanted for free, much less spend 10 bucks on. Usually at a Reformed Church book table there are some books featuring the writings of the Puritans, or Van Til's writings. Nothing. They were all these books with hip, emotionally charged, sensitive titles which are starting to look and sound a lot like mainstream Christian Bookstore stuff by Zondervan and Baker. They've all taken on this postmodern, effeminate and condescending tone. They certainly don't use the KJV and most don't even use even the NKJV anymore. They're all into the ESV now.
And even a lot of the good books remaining are written by authors who see God's Law as a guide for Christian morality, but not for society's. The Ten Commandments are viewed as the law in exclusion to Biblical Case laws. The Ten Commandments are not the Law! They are a summary of the Law.
There were some Doug Wilson books there, but that's a different topic entirely.
This may seem like nitpicking, but it makes the difference between reading something by Thomas Brooks or Samuel Rutherford and these soft PCA-type guys.
