John MCain Is Approaching Holiness

by | 28th, October 2008

BARACK Obama might be the Messiah, but John MCain is approaching holiness.

In “Clean Hands and a Pure Heart” David Gelernter writes in the Weekly Standard:

Granting the importance of the topic, the difference in moral stature between presidential candidates has rarely been as enormous as it is today–not (or not only) because Obama’s is so small but because McCain’s is so large.

There is no single English word for McCain the hero, the moral entity. But in Hebrew he would be called a tsaddik–a man of such nobility and moral substance that he approaches holiness.

If this assertion sounds crazy, that only shows how little we have thought about the issue.

Thinking now…

“Who shall ascend the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart” (Psalm 24:3-4).

You can always trust a man with clean hands…

Whether you like or dislike his politics, that is John McCain all over. If he wins this election, it will be a come-from-behind surprise. But in larger American terms, it will be no surprise at all.

John McCain is 4ft 9in, but if he stands on his clean hands he is much, much taller…
