I mean my temperment not the two year old in the household.
I have no patience with a number of things. I have no patience with time-wasting. (Forget Farmville and Mafia Wars.) I have no patience with foolish luxury. (See post on People magazine.) I have no patience with someone who corrupts the gospel and twists the words of the Lord to fulfill a political and economic agenda.
Do you hear me, Glenn Beck?
If Mr. Beck were in front of me right now, he wouldn’t want to be,because the full Irish tongue and temperment would take over. Bigger, braver men have quailed before that onslaught.
I didn’t know much about this brouhaha until friends brought it up on facebook. I don’t watch CNN, or follow newsfeeds. My world is pretty small. But for someone to call the Christian imperative of feeding the hungry, healing the sick, clothing the naked and visiting the prisoner “Communism and Nazism,” or whatever combination of word she used, is wicked. It is evil. I am sure he thinks he has reasons, but he needs to have a closer look at his own heart and at the teachigns of the Christ he claims to follow.
Don’t be fooled by such rhetoric. It is a way of rationalizing financial gain and disruptive and ruinative corporate and political policies. Listen to the words of Jesus Christ, not some guy in asuit and tie on television. We have the gospel before us and the love of Christ in our hearts, and the light of the Holy Spirit to guide us.
Beware of false prophets. Many will come before the end of all time, the Lord has warned us. Listen to Him instead.
