Pat Robertson’s Strange Prayer

I would really like to know why people take this huckster seriously!

Pat Robertson: My prayers are ‘going to supply a million dollars’ to someone (via Raw Story )

On Thursday’s episode of CBN’s religious talk show “The 700 Club,” televangelist and conservative icon Pat Robertson declared that the Christian deity figure had subconsciously told him that one lucky viewer of Robertson’s program will be made a millionaire through the power of Christ. “…

Satan’s Beatitudes

I may need to break the “mirrors”!!

Satan’s Beatitudes

If the Devil, whom we don’t hear much about today, were to write his Beatitudes, they would possibly go something like this:

“Blessed are those who are too tired, too busy,too distracted to spend an hour once a week with their fellow Christians in Church —
they are my best workers.

Blessed are those Christians who wait to be asked and expect to be thanked —
I can use them.

Blessed are the touchy, with a bit of luck they may stop going to church —
they are my missionaries.

Blessed are those who are very religious but get on everyone’s nerves —
they are mine forever.

Blessed are the troublemakers —
they shall be called my children.

Blessed are those who have no time to pray —
they are easy prey for me.

Blessed are the complainers —
I’m all ears for them.

Blessed are you when you read this and think it is about other people and not yourself —
I’ve got you.”

Have you ever read the story of the woman at the well? It’s found in the Bible in the 4th chapter of the Gospel of John (John 4:7-39) . If you haven’t read it before, or haven’t read or in a while, you may want to read it before continuing reading this post.

It is one of those stories that we so-called liberal Christians love because it shows something Conservative Christians don’t really seem to want to understand….Jesus was more concerned about people than “morality”.

Everything, and I do mean everything that Jesus said and did in this encounter with the “woman at the well: was wrong, violating either the mores ( the accepted traditional customs and usages of a particular social group), or “The Law” as thee people of His time understood it.

1) Jesus spoke to a Samaritan and asked for assistance.
The text puts it mildly, when it says that Jews didn’t associate with Samaritans. The Samaritans were to say the least generally despised by the Israelites, and considered them worse than Gentiles.

2) Jesus spoke with a woman and carried on a conversation with her as an equal.

3) Despite the fact that Jesus knows, and point out that the woman had had “five husbands” and s living with a man she us not married to, Jesus does not speak a word of condemnation.

How many times have you heard people say it is their “job” as “Christians” to point out the sins of others? Yet here we have Jesus not saying anything to the woman about her :sin:, not telling her to leave the man she is living with….he is “silent” about her “lover” and her “life-choices”.

Instead he answers her questions and teaches her.

4) It is to this woman that he FIRST reveals that he is the Messiah!!
John 4:25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” 26 Then Jesus declared, “I who speak to you am he.”

5) He sends/”allows” the woman to go and “evangeligize”

When people say that Jesus only chose men to be his “messengers” this is one story they need to re-read honestly!!

*****

I suppose I shouldn’t be too hard on Conservatives for not getting these points. The disciples who lived in close contact with Jesus took awhile to get them.

It is a good thing that Jesus did not wait until they did…..

John 4:39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.”

The Propaganda Professor

Whenever a politician, or anyone else, starts talking about regulating guns, it’s a safe bet that someone will bring up how Hitler supposedly outlawed guns in Germany, which supposedly enabled him to do all the mischief he did.  As we’ve noted before, Adolf is a staple reference among propagandists. It’s become an automatic response to compare anyone you don’t like to Der Fuhrer, on the grounds that since he was evil incarnate, everything he ever said or did must also be evil. People have even been known to suggest that since he was a vegetarian, vegetarians are evil. It’s not surprising, then, that you often see this quote pop up:

“This year will go down in history! For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”  –Adolf Hitler…
