A Dedication To pat robertson
GOD PERSON

Hey, God person
What you create today?
And where the hell were you yesterday
Telling me I would be more successful
and happier being your way
But I'm not complaining
What are you going to do about the starving?
Will you bother to show them the way?
They don't have the donations
I have to offer

On the last day
When God asks you
What are you going to say?
What mountains have you moved?
What storm have you tamed?
Have you helped others?
or have you just helped yourself?
Receiving fame from the fools who follow you
They're just as blind as you
I'm not understanding why
People aren't watching clouds pass by
Birds flying high
Trees don't grow
When they bow down
to people like you
Veins of the path lie beneath the skin
If people would just look within
The grass we walk on
Without caring to see
Can show us about you and me
Look eye to eye
and see every side of a round world
Each truth has a different color
All colors feel differently
Each feeling has a path
Going the same direction
Reaching up
We can reach out
Learning what it's all about
Darkness is seeing your own hunger
And not caring about another
With hearts shut off and turned inward
We can't look at the pain of another
Without understanding
We just hurt each other
But you are taken care of
Aren't you?

With your heart drunken with all their attention
Your pockets filled with all their money
You're a happy successful man
At peace, giving yourself to God
You're rewarded for sharing with us the plan
Bullshit, you have only given yourself to vanity man
Looking up to you to fill their hunger
They're too blind to see the scam

I'm not one to criticize
God knows I'm no perfect man
But I do claim to understand
You want to follow Jesus
Give all you own to the poor
and wear the shoes of the homeless
Jesus had nothing
and showed us everything
He truly belonged to the Father
Didn't have to bother asking for anything
Without the help of broadcasting equipment
His words reached around the world
Under many tons of pressure
He sweat tears of blood
He did
But you don't
He cared
You won't
To claim you follow him
Isn't fair
You want to help
Stop taking our money
Stop putting us down
Jesus didn't
And you shouldn't
Without knowing the name of the son of man
Buddha followed his words more than you
Won't you be surprised when Jesus says to you
I never knew you

Blessed is the one who tries to follow the way of Jesus
But isn't always able to
Cursed is the one who tells us to
But doesn't
Forgiving us of our sins
Who's going to forgive you?

Jesus had no credit account
Retirement fund
or limousine to take him about
Without all that
You say he saved the world
or did he just save you?
Preaching his words
You've obtained all that
When are you going to give it back?
There's only so much to go around
Why should you have all that?
Who's going to save the poor from you?
We don't need more people like you

Do you really know the truth?
Do you care
Do you really want to help
Doing the work of the gospel?
Stop your preaching
Pay your taxes like Jesus told you to
Get down here
and help out

Have you ever wondered why Jesus was a friend
to your sinners?
Why he was an enemy
to you?
Instead of fessing-up
You had to try to shut him up
After you had him nailed up
He asked the Father to forgive you
Even one of your sinners
At his side
Jesus was not ashamed
He even took him
With him
Judge yourself honestly
You must think you're better then me
Jesus didn't see it that way
Why should you?

What is the truth?
To see each other eye-to-eye
What is the plan?
To understand
What is the way?
To give each other
a helping hand

Does it hurt you
for me
to put you down?
Don't do it to me
Eye to eye
is the way
Together
We can all make it be
By sharing
We are taking
all the hurt, pain and hunger away
It could be a good day
Seeing the grass we walk on
Seeing every side of a round world
You will even see God around
Feeling each color of every truth
God will speak right to us
We will find everybody doing the same thing
differently
for the same reason
As God guides us
As God guides every other living thing
that surrounds us
Being back in the Garden of Eden
The Kingdom of Heaven
Jesus taught was within
will now be on earth
as it is in heaven
By reaching in
We can reach out
By sharing what is within us
about
We will take it out

How do you think Jesus would feel about Pat Robertson building a theme park in Isreal?

dont know, makes money for him, but probably provides jobs for the locals. not the best way to help i admit, there are other jobs they would probably prefer, and production of some sort would be more useful.

there is not much wrong with building a theme park, unless its in the middle of a very poor country, but israel is not particularly poor as far as i know (thought chances are i am wrong). business makes money, some of that money can be given to charity and often is. if someone makes obscene amounts of money and keeps it all, that is wrong however.

another example would be roman abramovich, his own countrymen are starving, and he could easily afford to support a large portion of the relief effort, but instead he spends it overpaying chelsea players and letting them spend ridiculous amounts on transfers,and work at an operating loss of tens of millions. its sick

It is believed that the land belongs to the Palistinians. We and the British took it and gave it to the Jews because of the Holicost. This is considered holy land, and for Muslims anyways, a them park would be an abomination. It's not any theme park, it will be a Christian themepark which neither the Jews or the Muslims accept.

Such a theme park WILL incite violence, and we're not so stupid that we don't know that, and because it will now directly involve Americans, we will be directly involved in the conflict.

It will nolonger be a war against Isreal and the Palistinians but us as well.

According to the bible God took this land from a people and gave it to a chosen people and a war insued to do this. The Palistianian arguement is that the European Jews did not come from this land and they also believe that because the Jews rejected Jesus their country was destroyed long ago.

According to the Christian New testament the Jews are supposed to get this land back and rebuild their temple and then the whole world will go to war with Isreal and then Jesus will return.

One might ask if the whole world is going to go to war with Isreal then why are we on Isreal's side?

Maybe we don't understand the bible as well as we think we do or maybe the bible is wrong - but one thing I know for sure, to incite violence just so you can have violence is just wrong, and to make money off of it is even wronger, especially if you yourself won't be the one being shot at or taking lives - then this is just a game for you - and the whole thing just stinks.

okay if it is a christian theme park as in its theme is christian then it will incite violence, and if its the americans building it, it will incite violence. but i think building one there otherwise, it would purely be a target for violence rather than inciting it.

So did Jesus

quote:
The Sheep and the Goats

Matthew 25:

31"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. 32All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

34"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'

37"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'

40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

41"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'

44"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'

45"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'

46"Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

Faith without works is dead.
