Set forth
your case,
says the Lord;
bring your proofs,
says
the King of Jacob.
[Isaiah 41:21]
*************************
"Can I ARGUE WITH YOU,
LORD?"

"About what,
Mein kinder."

(Shout up at the ceiling.)
"About......EVERYTHING!"

"Ah.
[SMILE.]
I see."

(Yell at ceiling fan.)
"Well...........CAN I?"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"What does My Word
say, child?"

(Squint.)
"Well,
(Squirm.)
this part says You're a... KING!"

[PATIENT NOD.]

"Yeah, but......!"

"But what,
My precious."

"In THIS country, all
we do is DEBATE!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"And.....ARGUE!"

[NOD.]

"And....AMERICANS don't HAVE
a KING, LORD!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"Who AM I,
little one?"

(Shrug puny shoulders.)
"The One Who told
Isaiah to walk around
NAKED ......?
For three YEARS?"

[SMILE.]
"Read It to Me,
child."

"It's right HERE, Lord:

In the year
that the
commander in chief,
who was sent by
Sargon
the King of Assyria
came to Ashdod.....
at that time
the Lord
had spoken by
Isaiah...son of Amoz...
Go and loose the sackcloth
from your loins
and take off your shoes...
[Isaiah 20:1-2]

He didn't ARGUE with
You, LORD?"

"No."

"Why NOT?"

"Cuz."

"WHY?"

"I said so."

"Yeah, but......"

"What, child."

"But, THAT was
DIFFERENT!"

"Why, My precious."

"Because, he already
HAD a KING! He was
USED to that kind'a STUFF!"

"No."

"Uh HUH!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"They didn't even have
Presidential DEBATES,
in those DAYS!"

[PATIENT SIGH.]

"See what I MEAN?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Nobody knew.....
what a DEBATE WAS!"

[PAUSE.]
"Who AM I,
child?"

(Shrug puny shoulders, again.)
"I dunno."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"The LORD,
Lord!"

[NOD.]
"And?"

"..........the KING?"

[SOLEMN NOD.]

(Squirm.)
(Grimmace!)
"Neah.
(Squint.)
(Scratch scruffy head.)
Uh uh.
I'm just not COMFORTABLE
with that WORD, Lord!
It's just not ......
(Wave puny hands in the air.)
Ya know: very AMERICAN!"

[CHUCKLE.]
"Who AM I,
child?"

(Squint up plump face.)
"The One Who......?"

"Yes?"

(Smile.)
"Eh....finishes
the DEBATE?"

[SOLEMN NOD.]
*************************
On His robe
and on
His thigh
He has a name
inscribed,
King of kings,
and Lord of Lords.
[Revelation 19:16]
