Thanksgiving

I was posting a comment on someone else's blog and thought I'd share it here. Seems time appropriate.


We did the first Thanksgiving as a research report and it is interesting to see all the errors we have grown up to believe. One example of a falsely is that the Indians were invited to the feast. They heard gunshots from the English hunting and came to scope out if it was war-- that's why only men were there. The Indians later finding out it wasn't war, had the wives and kids come a few days later.

The famous painting of the Indians and the settlers at a long table filled with food have the Indians painted wearing the wrong kind of clothes for their tribe.

And the Wompanog Indians (I know I'm spelling it wrong...)are the same tribe that later killed that missionary...shucks, I can't remember his name...The movie End of the Spear was made after him. Anyway, had they not been wiped out by some sort of plague, when the pilgrims landed on the new land, the Wompanog would have massacred them...

Jim Elliot?...I may have my movies mixed up.
And you are right it is amazing how many things get twisted to fit into our traditions.

Hi...I thought I should share with you that it was the Auca indians in Ecuador, South America who killed the missionaries: Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Pete Fleming & Ed McCully. If you would like to read an excellent book that tells the missionaries' stories, I would suggest: "Through Gates of Splendor" by Elisabeth Elliot. It is excellent and really had an impact on me when I read it over 35 years ago.

Thank-you Linda for the correction. While they have different names, it is my understand ing that the tribes were related somehow or that they were the same type of Indians...I'm no scholar and my memory is poor...I know that I read that they were the same Indian tribe...

RECALLED!


The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:
P-R-A-Y-E-R.

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control


Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!
GOD

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
