  4. @Quartermaster, it is interesting to me, when I look at your goals for 2011, they’re all interconnected. The best way to survive is to understand your adversary. We think this War on Terrorism started in Afghanistan. But if we take some time and step back, we will see a much different picture. The Tigris and Euphrates rivers run through the nation of Iraq. But in Biblical times, it was called, Mesopotamia. It was also called “The Garden of Eden”. If we look at all the players in today’s world, they have counterparts in Biblical times. To me, the strangest thing about this whole event is this, it is nothing more than an over rated “domestic”. Looking at the Biblical character, “Abraham and his wife, Sarai, who later became Sarah”. God had promised Abraham and Sarai, a son, but she had no children four 121 years. Sarah was the subject of a great amount of ridicule, but Abraham stayed faithful to her. Sarai, had a hand maiden, by the name of Hagar. Now Sarai saw that Abraham was never going to have a son through her, she was considered, “barren”, so she took matters into her own hands. Sarai told her hand maiden, Hagar to sleep with Abraham, Hagar became pregnant and bore a son, “Ishmael”. Later, God told Sarai, she was going to have a son. She laughed out loud, at the very thought of it. God challenged Sarah, “Why did you laugh? Sarai, you shall call him, ‘Isaac’, which means to laugh.” After the Sarai gave birth to Isaac, the Lord told Abraham that she was to change her name from Sarai to Sarah. She now had a son.

    As we look at everything going on today, the root is right here. The family lines come back either to Sarai/ Sarah or Hagar. If you look at the issues, they are consistent with a domestic. This is the reason, this problem will never be really solved.

    As a Nation, we should look at this over a multi-generational issue, we’re not going to solve it. But, we should walk very carefully through this process.
