bondlaserbits“Do you expect me to talk?” [asks Sean Connery’s James Bond to the villain Goldfinger in the movie of the same name, as he lies strapped to an operating table with a gold laser beam heading menacingly towards his privates]

“No, Mister Bond, I expect you to die.”

A classic Bond moment, and a similar statement is being made in today’s Mark passage.

Except this time, it is no Bond villain, but our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who is calling us to do the same.

Can this be?

Join me as I take a look at Mark 8.27-38

ah so he’s at it again, my good fiend Julius Malema

this time there’s rumours of him receiving a bunch of business tenders for his companies from the government. basically a case of you scratch my back, I fill your account

and the initial comment from Mr Julius is that he is receiving no money except his salary. and then the newspaper had quoted his salary as being R20 000 and his only comment on that was ‘I am getting more than R20 000’ which tbV thort sounded fair for a man in his position. until i pointed out to her that as much as R25 000 is more than R20 000, so is R200 000 000 000 more than R20 000. so it was left open to interpretation. Mr Julius did say that he has bank loans for the two 4.5 million rand houses he owns (something like that) because he can’t buy them with cash like the article said – he doesn’t have that capacity

the article i read last night was about the ANC defending his right to be living in wealth because that is what the ANC fought for. and then it listed some stuff. the two houses, the 800 000 car and then R250 000 for a…

i asked tbV to guess what Mr J had a R250 000 of and she guessed a bunch of stuff, but i told her she’d never get it, cos the article (it’s on the interweb it must be true!) said that he has a R250 000 watch. you know, like tick tick. the article didn’t mention whether or not this was an old James Bond discard and that if you hold down the light button for longer than seven seconds a laser shoots out that can cut through gold. just mentioned the R250 000, and the watch bit

i’m not so sure that’s what the ANC fought for!

not convinced that’s what the voters who were all promised houses and of whom thousands (millions?) are still living in shacks in hideous conditions were aiming at

i actually can’t get my head around anyone owning a watch that costs that much. but someone claiming to be by the people, for the people (or was it buy the people, for-get the people?) it’s just some kind of evil.

hopefully a time is coming…
