Just Thinking…

4 Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What will you give me if I betray him to you?” They paid him thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that moment he began to look for an opportunity to betray him. (Matthew 26:14-16 NRSV)
Roland Martin made and interesting comment, “Whoever is funding your freedom fighters is who those freedom fighters respond too.” As much as I would like to find a particular space of disagreement it is hard to disagree with that statement. The god of Capitalism proselytizes all. But, the call to justice is an armament of love centered upon producing equality and freedom. Even those that walked with the Messiah had a momentary lapse, and bowed to the god of Capitalism. But, the revolutionary and gangsta way that Jesus handled betrayal was to eat a meal.
This is my body…
