I'm writing in response to the article in the Automotive/Classified section on Nov. 14, "What would Jesus drive?" For starters, why place an article that slams one of the major automotive makers in the country in the automotive section?
And as long as we are asking "Him" questions, where would He eat? Applebee's or Red Lobster? Does He prefer Nikes to Adidas? Or would He own a Polaris or a Ski-Doo?
I realize that possibly this article was placed with a sense of humor. All of the automotive makers in the country financially back one event or another, which is really great. Who is Mr. Jim Shea to decide which events are OK and which are not? Obviously, Mr. Shea is a Ford fan, which is fine. I personally believe that Jesus would ride in a white limousine, with all of us believers taking turns being his driver!
Do we have all our priorities correct in America? Like you know, things, people, etc.?
Let's take a look. We have military on 'high alert,' because of terrorism we live in fear every day of the week. We don't. Think again.
Homeland Security -- we have Coast Guard Border Patrol, INS, CIA, FBI, Police, etc. How much is enough? More money!
The U.N. is a waste of our time and money. Iraq and Korea are peanut countries. What if they both try something at the same time? We send thousands of troops. Are we open for attack?
Terrorists make us change our way of living. Why is everyone in a hurry all the time, rushing everywhere?
Now "Real" priorities in America: Homelessness, single moms, kids alone, should I go on in this? You say, "No." Look again, friend, every day it goes on in this "great country."
Let's say for a month we close our doors and take all the aid we send and help our people, yeah, American people. "Cruel," you say. No, reality. We need to feed and clothe and house our people in this country. You say, "This doesn't go on." You better think again, my friend.
We have "thousands" of hurting, hungry, homeless people in this "great country." People with no insurance, no way to buy groceries and we turn our backs on our own. We will pay for this!
Let's put together, each one of us, a little money and I think we could solve this thing. Time is running out for people!
The Bible says in Proverbs 11:24-25, "It is also possible to hold on too tightly and lose everything."
P.S. The U.S is about $7 trillion in debt! Bankrupt? To whom? To us, the U.S.!
