God punishes Pat Robertson...'s pocketbook
Avi Hartuv, spokesman for Israel's tourism minister, said officials are furious with Robertson's suggestion that the stroke was retribution for Sharon's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip last summer. "We can't accept this kind of statement," Hartuv said.It ought to be obvious to any who are in tune with God that he has struck Pat Robertson where it hurts him greatly. Right in the pocketbook. Let us look at this from a biblical perspective shall we?
Robertson is leading a group of evangelicals who have pledged to raise $50 million to build the Christian Heritage Center in Israel's northern Galilee region, where tradition says Jesus lived and taught.
The one time in the bible that Jesus really lost his cool was when he went into the temple and flipped out on the money changers. It is exceedingly clear from this event that Jesus was not very keen on people who used his fathers house to make a buck. Would it not serve Mr. Robertson well to remember this if he truly were concerned for his spiritual well being? Mr. Robertson has made a mockery of Jesus express desire to keep his fathers house holy. And now Mr Robertson was going to defile Gods land with his money grubbing theme park? God has stopped this planned defilation (oh look kiddies... Frik made up a new word! Let us make that word defiling shall we?) of his land by filling Robertsons mouth with abusurdities about the prime minister of Israel causing officials in that land to withdraw their support!
Can you imagine the attractions at this abomination of a theme park? The holy roller coaster, the Holy Spirit haunted house, the Mary Magdalin love tunnel... the list could go on and on.
Let me close with this oft repeated disclaimer. (Any time I claim to see the work of God, which is always in response to someone like Mr. Robertson who sees the hand of God in events that are quite natural or political, I disclaim:) I honestly do not believe a word of the logic in the first several paragraphs. That is the logic of one who claims to understand God, and I certainly make no such claim. Anyone, from the president to the lowest insane criminal, who does claim to have this understanding is deluding themselves in my humble opinion... But it sure can be fun to turn the logic of those who make these claims back on them!
