The Parable of the Trader

Jesus was was speaking in the synagogue when one of the pharisees tried on a trick question.

jesus christ

"Teacher, how is it you, with no years of experience and wisdom, are standing before your elders and betters, purporting to tell us about God?"

Jesus said to them

'The Kingdom of God is like a land of milk and honey, in which all is not as it seems. There was such a land of milk and honey in which there were two opposing political parties, one led by a middle aged woman who had forsaken motherhood in favour of devoting her whole being to the study of political theory and internecine party dealings, assisted by an academic teacher of high intellect and wit, well versed in history; the other led by a young man of humble beginnings and great wealth gained from a life of commercial trading in far off lands.

The politician and the teacher were feted by the people and were lauded for their perceived wisdom and experience while the trader was looked down upon and scorned for his lack of political experience.

When the time came for a reckoning, the trader used his hard won instincts for risk taking and timing, honed in the cauldron of international trading, to outwit and defeat the politician and the academic whose apparent experience and judgement proved to be shallow and worthless.

Such is the Kingdom of God"

Adolf has been mightily impressed by John Key's quiet, careful, unflustered, hard headed and no nonsense approach to politics.

Clark and Cullen really don't know what is hitting them. They haven't got a clue.

I still remembered some of those biblical quotes, from my days of attending Sunday school (Methodist) in my younger years, even though I am now an atheist.

Another Quote, from Jesus to John Key (the person to the right from Jesus's cross):

John Key, Truly I tell you, TODAY YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN PARADISE. (Luke 23:43)

then John Key overheard Helen Clark (the person to the left from Jesus's cross), trying to mock Jesus, by saying:

Jesus, are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us.

John Key, then turned to Helen and said...

Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong.

Helen, then realises, that the supposedly happy ending for her in heaven, is now destined to be in hell, which is indeed a sad ending.
