Allow your heart to beat as one with those who have suffered down through history, as you cry aloud to God the words of this Lazaroo:
“Is he to keep on emptying his net, destroying nations without mercy?”
People have asked You that question for millennia, haven’t they, Jesus?
They’ve screamed it at You
as their old men were martyred
their young men slaughtered in battle
their women raped
their babies dashed against the rocks
as dictators, despots, mad kings and terrorists have seemingly had their way
Ivan the Terrible
Attila the Hun
Osama Bin Laden
Did You permit this to go on forever?
You did not.
To this very moment, your followers are meeting in secret, suffering, imprisoned, losing their lives in
Will You permit this to go on forever?
You will not.
