Men of Faith in Washington, D.C., Need Our Prayers

People are always asking me if there are good leaders in Washington. There are. There are quite a few, but you don't often hear about them because many of them aren't engaging in scandalous or self-serving activities.

One such good person is Attorney General John Ashcroft. I had the pleasure of interviewing him again this week for a column I'm writing. During the interview, Ashcroft said something so profound, I wanted to share it with you. Listen ... this is good.

The attorney general of the United States said, "Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him. Christianity is a faith in which God sends his son to die for you."

I'm going to repeat it. John Ashcroft said, "Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him. Christianity is a faith in which God sends his son to die for you."

If you are not already doing so, pray for this good man and for the president and the many others in government here in Washington who seek to follow the will of God ... the real God, who has sent His Son to die for all.
