I posted this a couple years ago. Updated.

I want to share a cool thing with you.
If you're not a Christian, please read anyway, because it never hurts to have a little information about what those whackos around you believe.

A few people know that Psalm 22 is a description of the crucifixion of Jesus that was written hundreds of years before the event.
David saw it in a vision and it shakes him up so much that he starts out with:

My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

Many Christians have been taught that, as He was crucified, Jesus was crying this out out to His Father in heaven, because the Father could not bear to look on Jesus, our scapegoat.
That He was separated from the Father.
That Jesus was a curse (and the Father could not be in fellowship with Jesus because it would violate His holiness) because Jesus was carrying the penalty of the sins of the world.

Give me a break.

<< 1 Corinthians 12:3 >> Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed.

Jesus and the Father had this worked out since before the universe was created, and at the last minute The All-Powerful Ruler of More than the Universe flinches?

No.
If the Father and the Son (who with the Spirit are referred to as the "Godhead" in perfect unity) ever separated, I believe the universe would crumble.
As you read the gospels, particularly John's, you see that the Pharisees (some of them, like Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea, were good guys, by the way) were asking Jesus for a sign that he was the Messiah. He continually answered them that when they saw Him lifted up, that would be their sign.

Here He is, lifted up in front of them. He's surrounded by "strong bulls" (prison slang for guards), and the crowd is taunting Him. It's the scene predicted in Psalm 22 .

Then He quotes the first verse.

And they know the rest.

Can you imagine the look on their face when they get it?

Do you get it?

Remember when the Clown-in-Chief scolded the Supremes in front of the world during his State of the Union address?
Now he's at it again:

President Obama, employing his strongest language to date on the Supreme Court review of the federal health care overhaul, cautioned the court Monday against overturning the law -- while repeatedly saying he's "confident" it will be upheld. 

The president spoke at length about the case at a joint press conference with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. The president, adopting what he described as the language of conservatives who fret about judicial activism, questioned how an "unelected group of people" could overturn a law approved by Congress.

Psalm 14:1-3 The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."

Proverbs 26 talks all about fools.

My favorite:

18 Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death,
       Is the man who deceives his neighbor,
      And says, “I was only joking!”

There's this show I watch.
It's not about gladiators or space aliens or mafioso or medieval kings.
It's about outlandish things.
People trying to change our government from a republic to a dictatorship.
A guy who has plastic surgery to look like a woman, entering the Miss America contest!
A group of thugs saying that the law doesn't apply to them and they put a bounty out for the death of a citizen (and the cops do nothing)!
A governor trying to sell a senate seat to the highest bidder!
A bunch of religious radicals getting an atomic bomb to convert the world!
A man who defends the killing of babies as they leave the womb getting the Nobel Peace Prize, after becoming president! (Come on, who's gonna believe that?)


It's the evening news.
