TEARING THE EAGLE

It appears I haven’t yet gotten over my Tuesday Tributes (to 11-6-12) or else there is so much more popping up this week that I can’t wait until next Tuesday.

So my big question is:     Why is this man tearing up our American Eagle?   Who does he think he is?   No. The better question is: Why are we letting him do this?

Second Question: Why is this quotation popping up all over the Internet today?

Quote of the Day:

“Your children’s children will live under Communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept Communism outright; but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you, we’ll so weaken your economy until you fall like ripe fruit into our hands.” -–Nikita Khrushchev, 1959

I was alive when those words were first spoken to us and I’m alive today as I observe their meaning. I hate those words. They are the words of a victor over the defeated ones. In Khrushchev’s mind, the State shoul rule over the people and direct them in all their activities.

It’s Friday today, the day when Christendom reflects on the Crucifixion. I think that gave me some perspective on this week’s news events. I’ll put it together next Tuesday, next Tuesday’s Tribute to 11-6-12.

Meanwhile, many of you will go to church in a couple days and hear the parable of the Fig Tree. A landowner is inspecting his property and sees this big Fig tree – lush green leaves, but no figs. He tells the gardener he’s been watching this tree for a few years and it never fulfills its purpose – never any figs. Cut it down!

The gardener says –  No, wait.   Give it a little more time.   Give it another year.   Then if it’s still not producing figs – as it should – then we’ll cut it down.

 

A word to the Eagle . . . Go find your gardener.   You  might have a little more time.
