What Would Jesus Say?

When people are killed in western democratic countries by what is called often called, "natural disasters," there is often an outpouring of grief and sympathy for the victims, especially if they are white. And of course, the dead are never shown on TV nor the lamentations of their relatives. But when the same happens to people in Asia and Africa, in particular, the same considerations are not give to the dead nor their grieving families. The dead, mangled bodies are often displayed on every news bulletin, and the camera never spots focusing on the lamentations of the grieving families.

In contrast, note how respectful and sensitive the news media have been to the sufferings of the people of western Australia, whose lives have been devastated by the recent conflagration. Talk about a free press that operate by double standards!

But the burning question is this: How would Jesus react to the recent disaster? Would he be saying, how sad? Or would he say, "Do you think that those Australians were sinners above all Australians, because they suffered such things? I tell you, No; but except you repent, you shall all likewise perish."

So, today it is the Australians, tomorrow it could be you - unless you repent.

I shall remain at Mizpah until desolation overspreads the land.
