A reminder that our only hope is that
we find GOD - again - before
it is too late ! !
We are told that the following text was
written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday
Morning Commentary on 18 December 2005, one week before
Christmas. Snopes informs us that this text was slightly changed in
form but not in content. The original transcript of the show may be
found at Snopes (1).
Ben Stein's confession:
don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't
think Christians like getting pushed around for being
Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and
tired of getting pushed around, period. I am a Jew and every
single one of my ancestors was Jewish, and it does not bother me even a
little bit when people call those beautifully lit-up, bejeweled trees
I don't feel threatened. I don't feel
discriminated against. That's what they are - Christmas trees. It
doesn't bother me a bit when people say 'Merry Christmas' to me. I
don't think they're slighting me or getting ready to put me in a
ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. I shows that we're all brothers and
sisters celebrating this happy time of year.
It doesn't bother me one bit that
there's a manger scene on display at a key intersection at my beach
house in Malibu.
If people want a crèche, fine.
The menorah a few hundred yards away is fine, too.
I have no idea where the
concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist
country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't
like it being shoved down my throat...
Or maybe I can put it another
way: where did the idea come from that we should worship
celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand
Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too.
But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these
celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.
The following text was added as Mr.
Stein's confessions made it through the internet. We include it because
we agree with the add-ons as much as we agree with Mr. Steins' words.
In light of the
many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little
different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not
funny, it's intended to get you thinking.
In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school
shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray
O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago)
complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said
OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in
school... The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt
not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we
Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when
they misbehave, because their little personalities would be
warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son
committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's
talking about.. And we said okay..
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience,
why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother
them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can
figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE
REAP WHAT WE SOW.'
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder
why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what
the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny
how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like
wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord,
people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude,
vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but
public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and
Are you laughing yet?
Funny how when most forward this or similar messages, it will not
send it to many on one's address list because one's not sure what they
believe, or what they will think of the sender..
Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us
than what God thinks of us.
Our challenge to the reader: Pass it on to your full list if you if you
have the courage to do so.
