Who Is My Neighbor?

The head of the Anglican Church, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, has condemned the UK government’s policies in the Middle East. Arriving home this weekend after a visit to Bethlehem, along with the heads of the Catholic, Armenian, and Free Churches in Britain, Doctor Williams said the UK government was putting the lives of Christians at risk in the Middle East.

Doctor William’s concern over Christians in the Middle East is commendable. It’s a great pity, however, he failed to consider the plight of thousands of other human beings who just happen not to be Christians.

It seems not only the American churches have deleted the parable of the Good Samaritan from their Bibles.

I wonder what Jesus would say?

  1. And those insignificant one billion non-Christians so brilliantly slurred over by said persons DO believe in Christ, DO believe in his miraculous birth, DO believe that he will come again, and to rule an earth of peace… but with Islamic law.

    i really wonder what will become of the Dicken’s Christmas then? (grin)

  2. PM – a fifty-foot Jesus? Now that really would be a miracle!

    Anan – I thought we’d lost you for good. I’m very thankful that you’ve surfaced once again. It’s truly good to hear from you. As for the Dicken’s Christmas, I’m sure we’d continue in the same vein as before, even if it meant wearing burkas! 😉

  3. Thank you, Mr. Adams. It is always a delight to read your excellent thoughts. But… Santa in black? Now, fie…
