Whatta we give each other anyway?
There's a scene in a movie called "The Oulaw Jose Wales".
In the scene, Jose, played by Clint Eastwood, meets with an Indian Chief called "Ten Bears".
Ten Bears has the upper hand, because he can kill Jose at any time. Ten Bears' guys have surrounded Jose, because Jose has ridden RIGHT into their camp.
But the two men have a conversation.
In the conversation, Jose makes a proposition. He offers Ten Bears peace. He explains how the system will run. He says that he will allow the Comanchee to "Jerk Beef" from his cattle and how "the sign of the Comanchee" will always be on his lodge.
Ten Bears replies "These things that you say we "WILL have...We ALREADY HAVE" and Jose says..."That's right, I ain't promisin you nothin extra. I'm just sayin that I'm giving YOU life and you're giving ME life and that men can live together without BUTCHERIN' each other".
I realize that this is a "guy's movie" but there's something to be said for it.
The last thing we hear from Ten Bears is...
"IT SHALL BE LIFE"...
Isn't that what Jesus said?
Isn't that what He rode into our camp to tell us before we killed Him?
