Acts Chapter Two Verses 1-21



And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.


And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own langauge. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans.? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderfull works of God. And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.


But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will show wonder in heaven above, and sings in the earth beneath; blook, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkiness, and the moon into blood, before thaqt great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved

". . Sarah Palin's family were Irish-American Catholics (from mother Sally’s side) when they moved up to Alaska, and it appears that baby Sarah was baptized in a Catholic church in Washington State in 1964, but the Palin children and Sally started attending the Wasilla Assembly of God Church in 1972 and in 1976 were baptized or re-baptized there.  Although Palin, in my view, anticipated the political potholes that might open in the road to the White House (or wherever) from her membership in an Assembly of God Church with its denominational and hence discoverable doctrines, beliefs, and practices, and started attending the non-denominational, less pin-downable Wasilla Bible Church in 2002, she is still, essentially a Pentecostal Christian, who grew up in the same denomination as Elvis Presley. . . ."
