They’re the ones who smash the one-day box office record with $66.4 million on opening day

They’re the ones who issue a 100 BILLION DOLLAR banknote that can’t even buy a loaf of bread

They’re the ones who put Nelson Mandela on a Terrorist Watch List… then removed him after more than a decade after fighting and deposing the racist apartheid government

They’re the ones who (f)mucked up the citizenship application of 21 year old Trinidadian/US soldier Kendall Frederick, who got killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq as he attempted to straighten out the bureaucratic mess they put him in…

But hey…

G8 Leaders Feast After Discussing World Food Shortages

[Art by Gustave Doré.  Taken from Creationism.org]

“G8 Leaders Feast on 8 courses After Discussing World Food Shortages”

When I read this headline, the first thing that popped to my mind was this: Luke’s Gospel, Chapter 16, Verses 19-31.

I’ve copied the text from the New American version of the Bible, but it should read the same regardless of the version you have access to.  Please read the excerpt, then click on any part of it to be taken to the story about the great feast.

Peace and Much Love.

“There was a rich man  who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day.

And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores.

When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, and from the netherworld, where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side.

And he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me. Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering torment in these flames.’

Abraham replied, ‘My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented.

Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’

He said, ‘Then I beg you, father, send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they too come to this place of torment.’

But Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.’

He said, ‘Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent

Then Abraham said, ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.'”
