I was made
manifest
to those
who did
not
ask
for Me.
[Romans 10:20]
***********************
"What's this
stuff,
all about,
LORD?"

"What,
child."

"This STUFF!
THIS STUFF!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"It's RIDICULOUS!"

"What,
child:
My Word?"

(Nod.)
(Grimmacing.)
"Yeah!
It's really STUPID!"

[PATIENT SMILE.]
[NODDING.]
"Which Part,
child.
Read It,
to Me."

(Pages flick,
impatiently,
back and forth.)
(Loud, whiny voice.)
"For whom
He foreknew,
He also predestined...
these He also called;
whom He called,
these He also justified....
[Romans 8:29-30]

So, WHAT?
So, we don't
have any CHOICE?
OVER,
... ANYTHING?"

[SILENCE.]

"They say.....!"

"Who is they,
child?"

"These CHRISTIANS,
LORD!
THESE CHRISTIANS!"
(Squint irritably,
up to the ceiling.)
(Loud whine.)
YA know:
The GOYEM!*"

[CALM NOD.]
"Ah.
I see.
Go on."

"They say,
we all PREDESTINED!"

"For what,
My beloved."

"For HEAVEN!"

[SILENCE.]

"That's not FAIR,
Lord!
Not FAIR!"

[PATIENT PAUSE.]
"What have
I told you,
child?"

"You mean,
about....
YOUR thoughts,
being BIGGER,
than...
MY thoughts?"
(Squint.)
"And,
MY WAYS...
being....
SOMETHING-SOMETHING,
with
YOUR WAYS**?"

[CHUCKLE.]
[PAUSE.]
"Something,
like that,
child."

(Squirm.)
"I thought
You were
really SERIOUS,
all the time,
LORD?"

[GAZE AT A LITTLE
POODLE BARKING,
ON A SMALL DARK
STREET
IN SAN ANTONIO.]
"No."

(Frown!)
(Suspicious look.)
"So,
WHAT'S this STUFF,
about,
ANYWAY?"

[SILENCE.]

"You're not gonna
TELL ME,
ARE YA?"

[SILENCE.]

(Suspicious squint.)
(Scrowl.)
(Yell.)
"YEAH?
So.....
where do the
JEWS,
FIT IN,
to ALL THIS?"

"Where
they always have,
My beloved."

(Glare towards the ceiling.)
(Angry yell.)
"YEAH?
WHERE?"

[QUIET VOICE.]
"Right Here;
in the
Palm
of
My Hand."
***********************
God
has given them
a spirit of stupor.
Eyes that
they should not see.
And ears
that
they should not hear.
To this
very day.
[Romans 11:8]
