Cranky Muslims and...

Kopp Disclosure
(John 3:19-21)



    You've probably seen what I just saw:

        They're not happy in Gaza.
        They're not happy in Egypt.
        They're not happy in Libya.
        They're not happy in Morocco.
        They're not happy in Iran.
        They're not happy in Iraq.
        They're not happy in Yemen.
        They're not happy in Afghanistan.
        They're not happy in Pakistan.
        They're not happy in Syria.
        They're not happy in Lebanon.


    It goes on:

        They're happy in England.
        They're happy in France.
        They're happy in Italy.
        They're happy in Germany.
        They're happy in Sweden.
        They're happy in the USA.
        They're happy in Norway.
        They're happy in Canada.
        They're happy in Holland.
        They're happy in Denmark.

    It concludes:

        They're happy in every country that is not Muslim.
        And who do they blame?
        Not Islam.
        Not their leadership.
        Not themselves.
        Not their own lethargy.
        Not their own industry.
        Not their own primitive social mores.
        They blame the countries that are happy...
            and want to change them!


    Yeah, it's true.

    The Muslims are cranky.

    Buuuuuuut so's everybody else.



    O.K., you've probably seen this too:

        No Jesus.
        No peace.

        Know Jesus.
        Know peace.

    That's really, really, really true; and it is the cure for all of the unhappiness rightfully listed in the section above as well as unacknowledged.

    All of the below are unhappy and will so stay until all are born, uh, again and from above.


        No Jesus.
        No peace.

        Know Jesus.
        Know peace.

    Seeing is believing.

    We see everybody's unhappy without Jesus through whom we can approach each other, experience reconciliation, and then live happily ever after.


    Not everybody over there or over here see the real Jesus of the NT who cuts through the - Oh, what's that technical psychosocial term to describe global/national/ecclesiastical/familial dysfunction? - crap.

    We - and, yes, I mean all of the below including you/me/them - are so religious about what's right and wrong that we fail to see the real Jesus who cuts through the, uh, religious crap through a reconciling relationship with Him that commands/compels/enables supernatural reconciliation with former, uh, enemies.


    Yes, we've seen it all before.

    Do we believe it?

    Jesus said, "If anyone hears what I am saying and doesn't take it seriously, I don't reject him.  I didn't come to reject the world; I came to save the world.  But you need to know that whoever puts me off, refusing to take in what I'm saying, is willfully choosing rejection.  The Word, the Word-made-flesh that I have spoken and that I am, that Word and no other is the last word."


    Somehow I/you/they overlooked that/Him.



Blessings and Love!
